Hopefully it isn't the burnout effect, it is HARD to get out of that let me tell you

It shouldn't be a burnout, since I still feel good while painting!

It's just that I don't know what to do with the armor, even with the really helpful advices from blue. I want to get some new idea's, which is why I called them done for now and went for my Wyches.

They will get a nearly complete /complete base coat today! Hopefully...

maybe you just need an accent color? or different colors on some other details

for example painting those studs on the legs ?
or i dont know but i know what you mean about something just keeping you from finishing and you just dont know what x.x

Haha you hit the right spot. I was thinking about which colors would do well, couldn't really decide and thought it would be the best to stop for now, before I get a burnout on these guys.

I might finish them after my Wyches are down, since I can't finish my goal of the whole Battleforce in a month (the 18 days that were left) anyway.
But I'm not sad about it, looking back at my 15 days of painting, I feel like I already improved by a lot! I'm looking forward to get better, better and even better!

Well let's take a look on what I finished today. Oh gentlemen, I didn't thought my Wyches would be that hard, but satisfying to paint!

First of all, a fully base coated male one!

Image

Image

Image

So far he looks a bit... blue. That should change after I get some bronze on him.

Thinking I get everyone base coated was a huge mistake on my part. At least I got all missing cloth parts, and all weapons!

Image

Last but not least, some abstract art:

Image

So who wants to pay me 500 bucks for that?

Accepted! Let's hope for you that no one's bidding more!

Well there are some men in their cult. You know, somewhere the lil' wych-babies have to come from.

Actually they do both. One for reproducing enough "men at arms", one for pleasure... and for Trueborns!

Of course I did!

I really like the head. Gonna use the one I get in my next battleforce for a Archon conversion some day. Why would I use such a silly head for something serious as an Archon? Well take a look at my Avatar, look back at the head, I gonna make it happen.

On the other hand I could hire a sculptor to create me this from your 525 bucks. These people want serious money, 14$++ each mm. :(

Short update for today, had sadly less time than I thought.
They all got their hair coated and three of them got a first armor base coat. Still need to do the fine parts near clothes/the face.

I'm really sleepy and have to get up early tomorrow, so that's it for today!

Sigh.... I won't have time to paint for at least the next two days due to family circumstances. Guess I won't fulfill my pledge because of this. :(

Good night miniwargaming!
