Dustinp's #the daily paint

Postby dustinp » Sat Mar 10, 2012 1:36 pm

well I guess i'll jump on the band wagon and attempt to join in on this thing. well while i'm at home and maybe while i'm on the road if the conditions are good enough. I may not be able to update every day or even close to it at time due to being away from home a lot of the time but i'll do my best, and when i can i'll bring something along and a camera to keep this thing going. there will probably be a lot of WIP pics because i never finish anything in a day.

Welcome to it! There's no obligation to do something every day... just when you can. We all have lives (more or less) outside this hobby. But most of us are finding #thedailypaint a great way to stay motivated, learn from each other, and keep the paint going :)

Progress is looking good! Black armour is definitely a pain to look good. I'd have to rank it right behind yellow, and a little before white on my list of least favourite colours to paint ;)

I agree with Mike, only black is second to orange. I just can't get a good orange ever

That Termie Chaps is looking really good so far. How are you coming with that Tac Squad for our Deathmatch?

That Chap looks good so far! I love painting yellow! I have a hard time NOT painting every army I do yellow. I may even paint my DE yellow...

The crew is right, I've been painting and/or modeling nearly every day. I do feel the urge to play Skyrim, but I'm denying myself.

I'ts coming along pretty well. actually doing grey hunters ( pretty much the same thing just needed a change from the greens for a bit lol) a few of them are close to finishing touches and some still need head painted because they have no helmets.
