A lot of plastic, but you're making headway just keep at it :tu:


As long as I get a couple of colors down a week I should be fine.

Finished a test model for the Poisoned Tongue Kabalites (while also getting all gold and silver done for the lot of them). I messed around with mixing colors to add layers to create more subtle highlights on a couple other guys, but it was just too finicky and not worth the effort. So I kept it simple, using Dark Blue from the paint app. This guy took around 20-30 minutes to highlight all of the armor on, not bad at all! I should be able to highlight a squad's worth tomorrow... (famous last words)  

 

Now, to add tufts and snow? Or not?

That is a lot of highlighting, but it looks good so well worth it! I'm not sure about tufts on such a rocky base maybe sparse and straggly if at all? I think snow would work nicely and also provide a nice contrast to the purple, and probably allow for a bit more grass too :)

Ok, I forgot to add snow and tufts to the bases. So I failed there, but on the other hand, I did manage to get the bases and black done on 95% of all the infantry. It took especially long for the wyches, with their body suits and all that.

Tomorrow, time to finish off metallics for the orange ones and maybe even get a start on some skin. I think I might actually get through this on time.

 

Edit: My censored.gif ing wrists and back are all nice and sore now. That's what 5 hours of painting does to you.

Looks like 5 hours of good work to me, so it might be worth it :P Basing is best done in bulk anyway so saving that for one last push isn't a bad thing I find :)

Yeah I reckon that some snow and tufts wont take more than an hour for the army. How about your guys, any progress or still waiting on your break?

I've given up for now, too much work to be doing in the run up but I can feel my hobby mojo returning thanks to all the great work I see on the B&C so I'm confident I'll complete my vow with plenty of time once I'm done with work for the year :) Might try and strip down my existing models then too, as I'd like to get the bread and butter done first (for once) - plus your picture shows how good it looks! Plus thanks to 8th lots of models tends to be better on the table top too, as well as looking better ;)
