Looking great sleepy, I like how clear your colours are, are you using vallejo? Can't wait to see some pics of your raiders, and somehow I have to convince my friend to buy some scourges, because those models look awesome.

Yeah I use the Vallejo Game Color range. I really love the paints, some of them even smell like citrus fruits!

Well I'm not sure if I paint a Raider or a Ravager first. It will depend on what I want to use for the Deathmatch I guess.

Oh yes you are, challenger.

Imo the standard Vallejo GC paints are superior to GW duo to their eyedropper bottles. It's so easy to mix your paints and always get the same result with the same amount of color.

DoIgetmoneyforthis?

But I'm a bit jelly of the awesome amount of shades, glazes and stuff, that GW has to offer now. I should try them out some day.

Nice progress bud...
GW glaze? HA! I can't imagine they got that right the first time around. It's all a marketing ploy and always will be. Vallejo offers a glaze medium. Mix it with any normal paint and you've got any glaze of your choosing!

Sigh... hello!

It's been a full week where I was a really, really lazy boy. It started with my 2 days working on assembling my new models and after that I got day after day an excuse for not painting. Like "doing nothing" for example. ^^'


So I did my pledge and nothing more. I really want to do more from now one again, let's see what the next week got for me.

Well, now to the pictures... I proudly present you... the hair and faces of my wych squad!

I just realized that there's some sprue on her arm left. Whoops!

I'm proud of myself.

Why? Well I finally stopped being lazy, for two days in a row at least. :D

Today I started the work on all the remaining skin parts like the right arms, bellies, etc. (sadly no tits q.q)

It still needs some more highlighting, but I'm fine it so far.

Fo everyone who wants to see todays work on the whole squad. Last 8 Pictures.

Highlighted the "muscles" of my Wyches and started the work on the clothes. Nothing happened furthermore, so it's only worth 1 group-picture.

It's plasticard! Which is plastic in form of cards basically. You can them in several different thicknesses and they are pretty cool for conversions n stuff.

Yes that right. Plastic glue is perfect for it.

edit:

I didn't felt good doing a double post that early, so here's my todays work!

Image

Image

Finished the clothes, did the bases (EDIT: WHOOPS I DIDN'T BLACKED THE BASE ITSELF AGAIN D= GONNA BE DONE TOMORROW). I'm kinda done for now. Sure there's still something to do, but from tomorrow one I will work on a Ravager for the Painting Deathmatch. Sprayed him in white today.

Good night MWG!

Beep, boop I'm a robot.

I started the work on my ravager for the Deathmatch. 8 Days to go, I will make it hopefully.

Image

Nothing special so far, only some work on the base coat. I decided to use a darker blue on the transom. I will try to get a blending effect done on the parts where both paints encounter each other.

Black parts will be gold later one.
