So I have but a few hours of modelling time left before my friend arrives on Sunday (I work heavily on the weekends - very long days). So have just an hour or so this evening to get some finishing touches in.
I have put aside the scenery for the most part, it is up to a just about acceptable standard. I have never used the oxide wash technical paint before (can't remember the proper name for it), and I was a little heavy handed/have used it wrong. So I'm not too keen on some of that on the mausoleum as you can see here:
But, as I said, it's acceptable and I had no scenery at all previously other than the Baleful Realmgates so I'm pretty psyched about getting some battles in with this stuff. Especially Skirmish!
I can't remember if I included this in the previous post, but I managed to basecoat almost every colour on the Warchanter, so he won't be a standout black model on the table (only the gore-gruntas will do that from my side *sad face*).
Here are some (very dodgy) pics of the army arrayed on top of my desk with horrific lighting:
I have bought some fine detail pens with which I intend to add some black detailing to the armour and then cover with freehand painting to stop it shining (unless anyone can recommend a matt gloss that would work as well...?) and will update with pics when possible.
On a different note...I was casually reading white dwarf and realised I had kind of achieved a 17 year old life goal of mine; to have a model featured in White Dwarf magazine. It's not even a model I'm particularly proud of from my Bloodbound as it was fairly rushed, but beggars can't be choosers and there it is!
It's a proper honour to be included with some incredible models from other painters from around the world! Proud!
