|These guys are the plastic ones.|
I had meant to submit these last Friday, and actually got them all the way short of varnish and flocking, but just couldn't muster up the energy after flying back home.
Readjusting to our schedules left me in a hobby torpor, so I only just got back to work on the rest of the unit yesterday. As I was planning a fun filled day of weight lifting and chiropractic adjustment, I realized that I had better get these six lads submitted today if I didn't want another goose egg in the points department. For me calling things done is always difficult, but always motivating as well.
|The view one is most likely to see in a game.|
Since my, still unfinished, Goblin wolf riders were yellow and purple check I thought I'd go with red and black for these guys. For them I decided that they were allowed personal freedom in design, as long as they used the troop colors.
For the "Black" I used Delta Ceramcoat Charcoal. It's my new favorite almost black. When I got home I dug out my Americana Gloss varnish for the helmets and daggers and used the liquitex matt for the rest. The liquitex is finally drying matt-ish and doesn't work as well on armor as it used to. I must have finally mixed it up enough. The Bolt Gun Metal was being fussy and came out very black for this bunch. On the ones in the background it came out of the dropper bottle a lot more silver. I need to put those stainless steel BB's in the bottle to help mix and keep some of the paints from gushing out of the dropper. Or at least that's how that's supposed to work.
|Where the magic happens.|
I would show you the rest of the loft, but I think the neat freaks of the group wuld fell compelled to fly out here and organize it for me. It's that bad right now. Just imagine an entire room that looks like the desk. I say I'm a borderline hoarder, but sometimes I wonder when intervention will happen.
|Have paint, will travel.|
These are very cool little guys Sean. Funny, I don't remember these chaps from 3rd Edition, but then again I don't remember much from those years so I shouldn't be surprised...
I quite like your mobile paint kit! I have something similar for when we travel for which my wife lives in fear of us being searched and me spilling 40-odd paints and a bunch of toy soldiers on the floor at the airport.
