Lots of stuff i'm looking forward to see. And i'm hyped to see what we can come up with for the painting comp =] Personally i'm rebasing a lot of stuff and currently finishing up some characters. Afterwards I've got a Casket of souls to do =D
I've been working on a few scale models for display recently. I've finished a TIE Fighter, Y Wing and X Wing from Bandai in 1/72 scale, and I'm working on a 1/48 AT-ST at the moment.
Wargaming wise I've been doing a lot of theory-hammering at the moment, working out a new Elf or Dwarf list for Kings of War, and working on some 5x4 movement trays to break my Skeleton, Zombie and Revenant hordes up into 20 man units. Also trying to work out how I'm going to represent some KoW units like the Tree Herder and Forest Warden.
And I am working at the moment on my Nagash, the books to be precise. The same books that are glued to the robe, which are glued tight with the whole base and so on - a big construction. And I try to paint them without smearing paint all over them, while the rest of the model is trying it's hardest to make it impossible to reach anything, cover it or cast a shadow on it... Definitely the hardest model to paint I encountered so far
And I spent most of yesterday on painting a freehand design on the Wight King's cloak - and it's not even that intricate, I only needed to paint and cover it up with black again a few times, I kept messing up the symmetry and/or the whole design. Not much was done that day in the end
@Eyeless That's crazy... I love undercoating - it's quite mindless & simple painting and a start of something new! Speaking of which, my next batch is in the process of getting primed. Round three for the skeletons and I'm wandering if I should do any freehand on the banner... and if so, what that should be...
@Farmer7574 I've got this feeling about starting something new when I clean the mould lines Putting the base colors to wash and highlight them later is what I find the most boring in the whole process, definitely each to his own @Eyeless And what's the casket itself? The classic one or something else?
And I am getting later and later home after work, so it's been tough to find some time to paint. On the weekend I'll try to buy some materials and construct a box in which I could make better photos. We'll see if that will help me
@Borgnine the casket itself is well... kind of in process although at the moment it looks like a bunch of hard cardboard and a pile of duct tape i'll try to get it done this weekend and get some pics up. although i'll finish up the crew first as i'm enjoying that =D
I'm working on finals and final papers, until the weekend, when my semester officially ends, and I travel home for the holidays. After the holidays, I will return, where upon I will make a decision to either sell/give away my undead, or re-commit myself to Age of Sigmar and start painting skeletons.
