Before I get on a roll with the painting, gaming and pics, let me say, it's good to be back!
More after the jump!
Welcome to the month of October's insanity (and some of November)! I had everything from speed painting my Eldar Harlequins and Vyper, to getting smoked at a 40k Apocalypse game (which was an absolute blast!), to getting started on my commission from BHTechMech.
So here to start it all, my Harlequins.
Those took me about a month total to complete, all getting ready for the game this last Saturday, and I have to admit, I was very pleased about how they all turned out! The models became easier and easier to paint and I could tell that my brush control was getting better at the end. Actually I noticed that once I was working on some new models that I had a much more stable control of the brush when doing fine detail.
Now for the Vyper!
The Vyper, start to finish, was done in 6 hours. I was really happy with the color scheme and was commented on multiple times about the style and color scheme with the bright metals. It meshes very well with the other metallic schemes I have shown here, but it is a bit different in the same. I'm thinking the next Fire Prism I will paint in a similar style.
Now onto BHTechMech's commission!
I was EXTREMELY happy to see how this has turned out. The torso is mostly done with the rest on the way! This was about 3 hours worth of work and I am very pleased with the scheme for the paint and also with how the metallics are working with the white and reds.
Something I do need to work on is the shiny factor, it does look good in real life, but in pictures, not as much. I will be using the Testors Dullcoat eventually on this model, recently I got to get some and try it out. Wow does it work really well. I'm sold on it.
Anyway, that is it for now. I will need to upload my pictures from the 40k game I played. I do have to tip my hat to the players there for enjoying the game and helping us noobs out while having fun too. Some of the best Chaos (Nurgle that was brown!) Space Marines that I have seen put on a field, and some good times with the sack of potatoes known as Huron Blackheart, the objective!
Leave your comments on the spew of pictures above. I would love to hear what you think!
