This is my ETL VI thread to toss in various pics and musing as I work through my vows.
To start, here is my first vow and progress picture:
Now currently I am working on the second half of this squad. In between what painting I can get in, I have been trying to update my transfer game a bit. So as a test I bought some Liquitex Gloss medium and did a 3:1 mix of gloss to water. Using Saint Duncans method of gloss coat, transfer then matte coat I set up a test figure to verify if that method will work for me. Once done, I then did some foam to stipple some layer red on the figure to nice effect. Here is my test mini:
I think it works and so my next step is to use this method as often as I can. The trick for me is to be patient which is REAL difficult for me to master as the closer I get to finishing, the more I tend to power through all the detail work and stuff.
Anyway, currently my eyes were dilated so no painting today for me. I should be better tomorrow and be able to get through some more of the second half of the squad. Need to start putting base color besides red (blacks, tabards/scrolls, silvers etc.) on them.After that, I can start working on detail work and the like.
