Mars-Crusader's Weekly Paint 2016

Post by Mars-Crusader » Thu Mar 31, 2016 12:37 pm

4 month into 2016 and I have yet to paint a single thing. Time for me to make my return to the war on grey miniatures and continue to showcase my terrible pictures. I have to prioritize my work to balance between painting and building things for Halloween. So I have decided to focus on painting my adeptus mechanicus which consists of

To Paint:
30x Vanguard
10x Rangers
4x Ironstrider Ballistarius
4x Sydonian Dragoons
16x Sicarian Ruststalkers
9x Sicarian Infiltrators
5x Imperial Knights
15x Kataphron Battle Servitors
2x Cybernetica Datasmiths
10x Fulgurite Electro-Priests
10x Corpuscarii Electro-Priests


Painted:
1x Tech Priest Dominus
10x Vanguard
10x Rangers
5x Onager Dunecrawlers
8x Kastelan Robots

The army in all of it unpainted glory

So since I started painting my Kastelans a month ago I have had lots of things that slowed down my painting. Minor things like
-Looking for a home
-Shift change at work for more overtime
-training for a half marathon
-building things for Halloween

Also since starting I have added 2 more models that I need to build. The Cerastus Knight Lancer, and the Questoris Knight Styrix to further increase the firepower of this army.

Thank you for the kind words everyone. For the red this time I started with the Dragon Red Primer from The Army Painter. Then I used the Carroburg Crimson shade>Evil Sunz Scarlet for the large panels>edge highlighting with with Wild Rider Red.

@Guildenstern- Work does go well. The butt kicker is now i'm on the overnight shift so my body is still out of whack adjusting to my new schedule. I did however get better days off, for however long those last before they decide I have gotten to much of a good thing.

Glad to hear about work, I know the pain of changing shifts ugh. Swing was as late as I could go and its messed me up for forever now lol I used to actually be a morning person.

RE: paint schemes, totally stealing that when I eventually get around to my mechancus stuff. It comes out beautifully when you do it!
