Mike's Yearly Painting Pledge - 1K Tau, 2K Necron

Post by Epic Duck Mike » Mon Jun 29, 2009 9:45 pm

So it looks like on average, I'm going to be painting 100 points of Tau and 200 points of Necrons per month. The fun thing is, I don't think I have that much Tau yet ;) I'm sure I've got enough Necrons (half my 6500+ point army is unpainted, and I'd like to repaint a good amount of the rest).

CURRENT STATUS:
Necrons: 196 / 2000 points painted, 2 Jokers used (10% complete)
Tau: 401 / 1000 points painted, 0 Joker used (40% complete)

Models painted to date: (photos coming soon)
Necrons: 7 Immortals
Tau: Ethereal, Shas'o R'Myr, 1 Piranha, 8 Gun Drones

I've been so busy firing up Epic Duck Studios, and working on commissions, that I nearly forgot about this...

Anyway, here's my plan for August:

Necrons:
Paint and Base 7 Immortals
One is already painted but not based, the rest only primed.

Total: 196 Pts

Tau:
Assemble, Paint, and Base a Battlesuit Commander
Total: ~120 Pts (with Wargear, to be determined)

...You realize you just asked me to post pics, about 15 minutes after I posted what I planned to paint for the month. I'm not THAT fast!

I'm going to be a little late getting my 'August' stuff done... I'm attempting to get about 100 Ork Boyz painted before next weekend, so I have no time for anything else ;)

Proof that Shas'o R'Myr finally got painted!

I took the photos in an improvized Light Box, using a single 13 Watt Daylight Fluorescent for a light source... so the photos could be a little nicer. Still, not bad for a 6" Cardboard box, a few sheets of Tracing Paper, and a desk lamp.

It does look similar, though mine has been in this pose since sometime in late June - I assembled it a few days after Games Day :P

Just finally attached it to a base though, had to find a masonry bit to drill a pinning hole through solid rock ;)

What can I say? Great minds think alike 8)
Looks nice mike, although I think the light is creating a lot of highlights and blends on the model?

Especially around the grey of the shield and plasma barrel + soem of the blue? If not, then you're amazing me :O

If its shiney-ness, hold a white paper in front of the lamp between model and the lamp. This makes sure the model isn't shinye

That they do!

The blends are being exaggerated by the lighting, but there's a few on the model :)

I'll try dimming the light with an extra sheet of tracing paper and seeing if that helps.

Tau are done for October. 11 Gun Drones, and 1 Marker Drone. 2 of the Gun Drones complete a Piranha at 85 points, and another 8 will form a Gun Drone Squad at 96 points. The other 2 will be Wargear, probably for a Stealth Suit team.

That's 401 points of Tau now :D
