Another post in which I attempt to motivate myself to finish things. These threads seem to take a nose dive off the deep end for a few reasons:
1 - I have a problem with starting things over. When I say starting things over, I mean 'this looks naff, into the methylated spirits with you for an undefined amount of time'. A perfectionism streak really, really doesn't help.
2 - due to number 1, I move on to other projects. I'm there fore sat on so many projects that it's a nightmare to get anything done.
3 - I love converting. I can spend weeks on the small things in a conversion. But nothing gets painted.
So, this is hopefully, hopefully, something to keep my random, scattershot hobbying on some sort of course. A few pics of things on the table at the moment, put in spoilers to save on screenspace for folks:
1 - Deathwatch Primaris Killteam
These guys and 2 Reivers who've had some work on them are ready for painting, with the guy on the left actually beign complete and slightly modified already:
2 - Emperor's Spears
Some may remember my Iron Knights/ Astral Knights WIPs from a while ago. Well, turns out, painting a lot of silver gets really boring really quickly. Then A-DB dropped the cover artwork for Emperor's Spear and that was it. One order from Shapeways from parts later I dropped in full force. I also managed to get hold of the Lieutenant from the Conquest mag to cut up a bit
This guy has been a bit of a labour - the fur cloak is made from a Greenstuff World texture plate. Learning how to use that has been a trial but I feel I've got the hang of it now. Icons are from Shapeways. I may extend the fur on the shoulder further down the front of the shoulder at a similar angle so I can add a clasp to it, followed by some clean up. Next on the cards is to build/clean up 10 Primaris so they can all be painted at the same time (roughly).
3 - Legio Pallidus Mor
Also on the paint table - but not photo'd - is a full titan maniple awaiting painting in Legio Pallidus Mor colours (black, bone and yellow with silver trim)
So, there we go. A start to this whole afair. Lets see how far this one goes.
