Painting Table 2/25/2010

So in the last week I've done quite a bit of painting, but not a whole lot of completion. You'll notice the Hidden Set Up Counter is no longer in the picture. That's because it's done and waiting to be photographed when I complete a few other models. The armless robed marine from last week only needs some static grass and he's technically done. However, I don't like how his arms fit so I wouldn't be surprised if they get pulled, thrown on another model, and he gets replacement arms. He's well painted but kind of underwhelming for a sergeant. A little bit of work has been done on several of the models from last week but nothing else is close to completion. My goal though is to have 3 or 4 models completed by mid next week including this sergeant and the Hidden Set-Up Counter I mentioned being done. We'll see how that goes.

Painting Table 2/19/2010

Any of these things could be the next thing completed.

The Resurrection

So after letting this blog sit dormant for a year as a result of 2ndCityWarzone, I kind of want to bring this back. Not that 2ndCityWarzone is brimming with content, but I just want to document my random project log stuff here, and do more "finished product" and actual articles there.

So here are some quick shots of the Scout legs I've been working on. I've mentioned in the past that I like to paint my models piecemeal when I can. To me, painting a set of legs is a rewarding project in and of itself. I sat down a month ago, after finally deciding the look I wanted for my Angels of Absolution Scouts, and I modeled tabards onto 8 sets of Scout legs. Here are shots of the putty rolled out thin and trimmed into the shapes I wanted, then pics of the modeled legs, and finally the completed test model.
Anyone who has followed my blog entries (all two of you) will recognize that you probably won't see these models completed for another 5 years. But this is one of the many projects I've been working on. Maybe the Great Painting Race, mentioned on 2ndCityWarzone, will move these along a lot faster. Here's hoping!
