Busy day



Its been a hectic day! I made a lot of progress on a lot of projects. The Mystery Dragon got some work with refreshing the base flesh of the embattled dwarves and a light green work up of the underbelly and transition scales as well as the wings and face of the monster. The next Orkk Trukk went from bare sprue to completed rolling chassis. It has the same black primer + Tin Bitz (Citadel) + Bolt Gun Metal (Citadel) as the last rolling from but the wheels are weathered and dirty using the same basic finish as the rolling chassis followed by heavy splotchy applications of Brown (Craft Art) and layering up through Spice Brown (Ceramcoat), Golden Brown (Apple Barn) and Flesh Tone #5 (Horizon). After wards topping with Devlan Mud (Citadel Wash). I may powder or chalk the wheels but that can be accomplished in the round up at the end.

The five Juggernauts of Khorne got their basic red treatments. Mechrite Red (citadel foundation) followed by dry-brushes with Harvest Orange (Apple Barrel) and Apricot (Apple Barrel) and a Baal Red (Citadel Washes) wash. The Citadel premixed washes, while expensive, are handy for repeating effects across large numbers of figures. The same effects can ,of course, be achieved by mixing our own washes but its quick and easy and doesn't require me to make a note of it in my color recipe book. I also began the black blocking process on the Juggers. This takes a lot of time and is terribly tedious but produces great results in the end. Basically all voids and metal items get painted black as well as some of the joints. This will make the metal effects stronger in the end and imply depth.

So where are we? Dragon, Trukk, Juggers... oh yeah Sisters of Battle Fortress personnel door got the basic work up of the icon and the colors (Which seem to have gravitated to red and black) and wings! I found the Wings for Azzazel on the priming tray with the Juggers. I thought I'd misplaced them but am happy to find them. They got a Flesh Tone #5 (Horizon) wash and a white brush up. The pinions and longer flight feathers will get a further white dry brush and we'll see where that leaves us.

  1. I'm curious to know why you paint your stuff still on the sprue?

  2. I've actually only paint vehicles or complex monsters on the sprue. Mostly its for speed and ease of access. I end up not having to get into as many tiny or hard to reach spaces. Metal kits and most resin kits I do a test fit before painting but plastics on the sprue I just bulk paint and then fit and repair at the end. Character models and most single figures I like to paint already built so I can better visualize effects.
