I have a bunch of stuff that needs redoing, and a lot of free time. Later on, when I run out of minis, the dailypaint will go silent. But, I have enough minis to last until the apocalypse. Speaking of which, when will we be doing the next Paintocalypse? That's the second reason I joined the forum (the first being Mike and Joe telling me to).

So, I'll update tomorrow with pics to what I'm painting. My current project is a Hammerhead/Skyray :D

I feel welcomed :D

I didn't do much today, came back from visiting family so I didn't have much time. I built the drones for the Hammerhead. Tomorrow I'll work on the Hammerhead hull, finishing base painting and layering.

Question: The back door on the Hammerhead won't stay up, as if the "pipe" that connect the door to the back "wall" is a bit too small. Any suggestions?

Sorry about blurriness, I'm on iPad camera for the summer.

I haven't painted anything for almost 5 months, and I needed something to get me pumped before the school year starts :|

I was thinking of glueing it shut, but I'm not sure if that's the path I want to go.

Day 3

I painted the burst cannon drones for the hammerhead yesterday, and did a little more layering on the hammerhead hull. I also layered the carapace of a carnifex head and scything talons. Pics will be up soon.

I see a bit of issues with your painting technique which I think could be fixed if you used white primer instead of black, because the colors you picked are bright colors, which don't go well with a dark prime unless you layer it.

Someone suggested that to me, and I'm considering doing it. Do I have to respray paint the whole army though so it'll look the same?

I have been painting a little everyday, never fear. I've been working on the hammerhead recently.

I still have to paint the sides and the back, along with the Railgun/ion cannon. I also have to layer a bit more, but it's near completion.

Sorry for the absence, I was away from Internet from s while ,and couldn't get pics.

I finished the hammerhead hull over the past few days, and it looks a lot better than TNN I painted a while before. :D no pics right now though :(
