Now we are all caught up where is my army coming along. Well, I have no grand model buying plans like my brother but instead, I do have lots of models still needing painting. But a whole lot more need spraying and with a storm raging through London that will have to wait.
The picture for this post is the 4 models I painted today.
I honestly hate the painting and building of models. But you know what really grinds my gears!!! The silly little flimsy horns on models and the ridiculous amount of detail in the plastic. Like, I understand that its cool to be able to have extra detail but its getting near the point of needing an MA in Fine Art and Sculpture to paint models well.
That’s right, I’ve been working on some terminators for my grand company. And they’re not doing too bad – nearly halfway through my terminator annihilation force in a blur of action that has not matched my previous apathetic mood.
This apathy was brought on by one particular model…
…and my inability to recess shade my vindicator 😭. Especially when Duncan makes it look so easy 😕.
However – I clearly got my mojo back XD
Quick question anyone know how to wash a smooth surface well? Would really help me finish this Deathwing shoulder pad
(also – is that about the correct colour scheme?)
Well, the train is about to pull in so I will lose my wifi
Well, now my brother has started the ball rolling on this I suppose you how I give my models their “beautiful” look.
First you need some models – I’m using the Dark Vengeance chosen models because they’re pretty and they’re what I’ve been painting recently.
Onto how it’s done:
Base them with leadbelcher spray, so that you get a nice even coat
Then pick out the metal details with gold (I use gehenna’s gold). Also, doing the tabard in brown and anything you want to hazard stripe in black
Now you wash it all black 🙂 and then it looks all lovely like this(Also, the horns were done afterwards – white washed with sepia or devlan mud). Then you just have to details, like the eyes – I do them yellow, along with the eyes on the daemon shoulder plates.Happy painting
