A belated thank you for all the advice and support you’ve given me guys. I apply for the lack of activity of late. You can blame work and now the World Cup for that.
I did however get some free time today, and this is what I managed to do:
Further progress on my hellblasters:
Including their weapons:
These are going to be really involved though. In order to get the hands right they had to be sprayed in retributor, which now means everything needs lots of layers to get right. Lots of layers.
The glowy bit is a cheat; it’s gong to be white with blue wash applied.
I also managed to assemble some of my last Arkanauts:
This squad is going to be the ‘command ship’ of my Iron Sky squadron. No game effect, just pure fluff. This is why the captain is a bit more involved than the others, with a volley pistol, Sky warden head and two detailed shoulder pads.
Going forward, even though gaming wise I’m all about the new age of Sigmar, when it comes to painting I’m going to focus my attention on the lions. Because they’re easier, and it’s a smaller army. This helps to keep my moviation up whilst I plan the next step with the Overlords.
In the next week or so, I’m going to buy the symbols for the other shoulder pads (the tactical arrows and so on) and the basing gear. It’s time to really finish something once and for all. I’m thinking grey rubble. Simple, easy to do and will really contrast with the gold. Or maybe something red. What do you guys think?
Oh, and I’m finally painting their bare heads too. If I had my way I wouldn’t have had bare headed marines but that’s that. I need to do some research for painting dark flesh.
