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!
Well, it’s March already, which means we’re just about to the 1-year anniversary for this blog. It’s been pretty quiet on this front, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped thinking about painting pink armies and what to do for this year’s Breast Cancer Brawl events.
I’ve decided on painting a Protectorate of Menoth force for BCB: Boise and have worked out a decent list for the Order of the Pink Menofix. Just need to get the models. Dicewraith is scheming something, and Gdaybloke has the Ta-Ta Kriel to unleash upon the masses.
In other news, y’all should follow this link and support Devilsquid for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure.
BCB: Boise will be back in October with a vengeance. Brotherscott is a PG now and we’ve got a host of PGs from Utah who should be making the trip. We’ll also be working toward getting some folks from Privateer Press down for the event. We’ve also got some ideas for prize support and how to make this year’s event even bigger and better than the last. 🙂
Ok all, I finished up my 500 pt force. I want to thank everyone for the comments, sorry about the pics. Hopefully when I got to the store I can get some better shots. I got some other stuff to work on before I add more to the cryx, but I’ll post my extras. Without further a due:
I like how they ended up, and it helped raise $67 or so dollars to go toward my Breast Cancer Brawl donation event. I had a lot of fun doing this, I think next year I’ll do up an army and auction it off to add to the donation…maybe retribution.
I hope to make it up to Templecon next year, maybe we should have a pink army throw down or something (maybe tour of duty style).
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.
I’ll have pics soon, I’ve finished my second deathripper (with the sanquine underbase) its my first offical item on my list. I’ve got a slayer, stalker, neco tech, scrap thralls, dyrills and Morty primered. I picked up my second slayer and my withcrshadow today so thats the models I need for my list. I’m looking good to have my army done for my event (Sept 19).
I want to give a thanks to IMI on the privateer boards, I got a good bit of extras for my cryx in a trade. I know he still has some stuff if anyone else is interested.
So two deathrippers come in one blister; I thought it best to test out my scheme on a jack. I put one in a normal pose and another in a moving pose. I like the moving one better so I test painted the normal one.
I like how it came out. I don’t know if its quite what I was envisioning but I think it works. I don’t know if I should pick out more of the details or not (like the bolts & screws). I already decided to paint morty last. So after the death ripper I’m thinking of getting a slayer or a stalker. Thoughts & Comments?
tallyn42 asked if I could post my test paint I did for my army. I think I still have some detail to do on her but I was really just trying to get the pink the way I want. So here she is (sorry for the quality):
This is my first completed model for Paintpink. I truly wish I was a better artist but what can I say? I did what I can.
This is Aiyanna of “Aiyanna and Holt” fame. You can see a definite anime feel from the color and style. Somehow the only inspirational pieces from pop culture that I found in this color scheme were all anime and that seems to have come through. 🙂
