Cryx update, with pics

So I got my other deathripper done except basing. The others are in different stages of doneness. Some just need a wash while others are just started (and the helldriver just popped in for a pic). I’m thinking of trying a swamp basing but haven’t really decided. I wanted to get some pics up showing what progress I’ve made. I think its really coming along. While starring at the two different deathrippers the one with more purple is starting to grow on me more. I might paint my duplicate jacks in the different colors to distinguish them apart but basically keep the scheme the same.

Calandra, Paint Pink

OK, I asked to be a part of the Paint Pink bloggers, and have not posted anything, so here goes:

I kept looking at the Calandra model on the shelf, and I really wanted to paint her, but I didn’t want to get into another faction after being 5 factions deep (and soon to be 6) in Warmachine and Hordes (Protectorate, Cygnar, Khador, Mercs & Pirates, and Circle). Or so I thought. I picked up the Calandra model after declaring that I would paint her for the Breast Cancer Brawl in October. I knew she would maintain the blue skin the Trollbloods are known for (and the way my Boomhowler unit was done, some blue, some green skins). What she really needed was a pretty pink dress.

I got the model home and assembled, and let her sit overnight.

The next morning I headed out back and threw a primer coat down. I saw potential in the model already.

I know I should have let the model sit for another day, but I wanted to get cracking on her. Since I am not painting a 750 point army, I know I can take my time. Still difficult when I know how I want to do something. I laid down the base coats.

With what I feel is a decent start, I threw down a few more colors until she is almost ready for ink. I have a few things I need to do before that happens, so this is where I left off:

I am pretty happy with her, and think she would be a fun addition to any Trollblood army. I may have to bid on her to keep her in mine (the day after I bought the model I ended up trading paint work for a decent sized Trollbloods army). Or I could auction her off and paint up another one. Not a bad deal either way, and for a good cause.

Will post more as I get her closer to done. Thanks for checking in.

Back to work!

Finally got back to my painting desk, though this heat wave is killing me. Paint is drying out so quickly!

Got some more work on Fiona done, but still not finished, had to switch to something else. Started and almost finished work on Anistasia ‘La Main Rose’ (The Pink Hand) De Bray. Decided that trying to make an all pink color scheme was driving me nuts, so I went with a more ‘spy’ grey and brown scheme with one pink glove. I’ll also be trying to freehand a small pink ribbon on her lapel.
