Had to take a moment to share. I managed to get a great deal on some Cygnar models and asked one of our talented local painters if she would paint them up as prize support for our Breast Cancer Brawl event at The Comic Store West in York, Pa. She hasn’t finished everything that I gave her, but I think the force is looking pretty good.
Too bad I’m running the tournament, I’d love to have a chance at winning these. For anyone in the local area, (or anyone who feels like a road trip), the event will be on Sat. Sept 17th!
Well vacation has been wonderful. I’m spending some quality time with my family, but I’m not getting a lot of painting done. Nevertheless, I have a solid base coat and some highlighting started on the first model for my Thyra tier list. I’m still trying to decide which resin bases to order for this crew, if anyone has suggestions I’d love to hear them.
Without further adieu Sir Stabby.
Although I don’t have much to show yet, I’ve committed to posting each week on here. It will keep me moving.
So there I was complaining on Twitter about how incredibly detailed my Thyra model was and what a challenge it will be to paint it when Bobaferret replies and tells me that hers is finished already!
See her post on Losthemisphere here http://losthemisphere.com/blog/?p=14388
I love the simplicity of her scheme and hope my warcaster turns out looking this good!
My army is looking significantly still…..well white right now. I claim victory in the fact that they are now at least partly assembled as last week they were still in their boxes.
My goal is to post a photo of a completed model by next week. I’ve started the base coat on the dervish and feel confident
he’ll she’ll be camera ready by this time next week. Right then- back to the painting table for me!
Alright, So I didn’t forget about my Thyra theme force. I’ve just been a little distracted by these guys.
I realized about a week ago that I had an entire faction almost completely painted. For a guy that has a litteral mountain of metal in his basement that’s a pretty big deal. I haven’t had an army completely painted since….well I’ve never had an army completely painted.
I have been working on figuring out my exact Thyra list, and have even made a few purchases, but my paint brush has been focussed on Pendrake, Saxon, Gudrun, Rorsch, Brine, 2 Warhogs, Carver, Arkadius, and a bonegrinder. I only have three models left, and then I can put the piggies to bed and focus 100% on my pink project.
This will be my first foray into the Paint Pink blog. I’ve been a fan for two years, and have finally gotten the guts to get out here and join the ranks of the pink armies. It has taken me several weeks to decide what army I was going to paint. I wanted to paint a faction that I didn’t already have a paint scheme for. That left out Minions, Circle, Retribution, and Khador. I bounced back and forth several times, but I finally decided on the faction that I once labelled as the one would never own. One model made all the difference. Thyra, flame of sorrow.
I’m not sure what is going to end up in her army, but I’m going to try to work out the paint scheme on a dervish that I just happen to have lying around. I should have some pictures in the next week or two.
So what are you painting pink this year??
