(Okay, long story short: when I looked at these pictures on my laptop while I was writing this post they looked fine. Now I look at them on my desktop as I post them they look far too shadowy. Hopefully they look okay but I really need to get one of these daylight bulbs people on hobby forums enthuse about and maybe that'll solve the problem once and for all.)
A productive week. Not only did I get the Glade Lord finished for my One Week Challenge but a few other bits and pieces along the way. I've got a head of steam up now and hopefully I can carry that momentum forward and get more done next week.
This week's models, in order of completion:
|Model 2015.1: Astra Militarum Silvik 23rd "Fixers" Guardsman with lasgun |
(Statuesque Miniatures head conversion)
I think a darker grey for the flak armour would compliment the grey better in future, though. I'm rather proud of the red edging, though.
|Models 2015.2 and 2015.3: Orks Gretchin with grot blasters.|
|Model 2015.4: Alvin Callum, Inquisitorial Acoltye with laspistol|
|Models 2015.5: Wood Elves Glade Lord with great weapon and Asrai longbow|
|Model 2015.6: Mehendri Korendorf, Vampire Counts Necromancer|
I've been using this Necromancer model for the better part of a year with it very nearly almost completed and I took the chance to finish him off. I'm not entirely satisfied with the pale flesh method I tried but I really didn't feel like repainting it.
|Model 2015.7: Orks Mek Gun Crew Gretchin|
One Week Challenge #2
If there's one thing my Ork army needs its more heavy armour, plus I want to try something rather larger than a single character. The Meganobz seem relatively simple: once I've got the green flesh and the armour painted there's just the details to fill in. Also, they were a birthday present (well, three of them were) and it seems ungrateful not to have painted them.
