For you, Dos, a mini-update, to show that I haven't entirely let this project slide in favor of the blue one.
And to show to my brothers of the B&C that, yes, I actually do paint once in a blue moon.
That's 3 layers of Averland Sunset over a grey basecoat, then washed with Seraphim Sepia, then layered with Yriel Yellow, with a glaze of Lamenters drying in this picture, too. After that, might do another highlight, but that'll probably wait until I've started other colors so I can see how it balances out. You'll probably notice that I didn't get entirely even coats, but in real life it ends up looking like battlewear, and with the chipping and stuff I was planning on it should end up looking pretty damn cool.
Anyways, I've got a question for y'all. I was thinking about doing black shoulderpads to mark out my Grenadier (Veteran) squads in this army. As much as I like the idea, I have some doubts about how it would look once put into effect. So, I'm asking you guys. Black shoulderpads? Yay or nay?
In any regard, thank y'all for the support. I'm still *really* excited about doing this project, and I'm incredibly thankful for the enthusiasm with which this has been received. Fluff is in the works for the next main update, which will come as soon as this guy is finished. Until then, sit tight, hold the fort, keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn...call the
