A little over 2 hours each.... they aren't fast at all, and I have 18 more Warriors, 5 Scourges, 3 Reavers, 14 Hellions, and assorted characters to go yet. That's a lot of hours ;)

Did some Non Metallic Metal on the Kroot Shaper, decided that the metallics looked out of place.

Also started on a Circle Orboros Skinwalker, began with the armour inlays. And yes, I filmed the process :)

Glazing takes a lot of practice to get right. If you have spare bits kicking around, especially swords, I recommend practicing on them. It's really a matter of thinning the paint to the right consistency, and using colours that blend well. I'll sometimes add a bit of a binding agent to make the glaze slightly sticky. Lots of mixing mediums have this alraedy built in. If you're thinning your paint with water though, try adding just a touch of white glue to the mix, and stirring it in really well.

I see thanks for the advice :)

I've only got two Trollblood models to paint (both for friends, not mine).
Tau? I've spent 3 days painting a Kroot Shaper, and I'm paint-stripping a R'Myr for a friend today. I think the Tau are seeing plenty of action.

Today I started on the armour for one of the three Skinwalkers (I'm painting the first model prior to filming the second one, so that I'm happy with the colours before I go to video), primed a few things, got a few more old models in brake fluid, and started work on my 7 penalty models - Necron Warriors, this time around.

This is about where the Skinwalkers finished lat night:

I haven't really decided what I'm working on tonight. I might try to finish a Skinwalker, or do one of my own models (the Skinwalkers are for Allurea's Circle)

Oh, and I did some basic work on an Ultramarine Sternguard already today, just basecoating and stage 1 washing, nothing really exciting yet.
