Since the release of Storm of Magic, I've been trying to paint up this Chimera. I based it loosely on the same color scheme as He-Man's tiger mount, but I'm just not 'feelin' it.
So I jumped to the Shaggoth. Unfortunately, I'm not happy with the way the skin is coming out, so I stopped. Unfortunately, I haven't really thought about how I want it to look when I'm done...
I decided to start working on some characters. I pulled out my old Huron Blackheart model and started to work on it. I got bored.
So I pulled out my Empire army again and decided to change my color scheme. I had originally chosen Ostermark as my home-province, but I've since changed my mind. I'm going to paint them all to match Ostland (black and white, with red bull-heads), and I've started to rip the shields off so I can shave them flat. That turned out to be alot of shields, so I quickly lost my motivation and decided to try something bigger.
While I was working on the characters, I decided to update my BA captain. I have to start putting chapter insignia and squad markings on that army, and he was the first to get done. I planned to paint his thunderhammer the same as power weapons in that army, but I got distracted. Also, I'll show you more details on this guy when I do the blog showcasing my Blood Angels at tourney standard...
That bigger thing that I wanted to work on turned out to be none other than the cursed Stormraven gunship. I have to get it done, one way or another. I successfully shaded in the lines and corners and now I've got to do the second basecoat.
But I decided to drybrush my Dreadknight instead. Still needing to be washed with blue ink, I almost thought about dumping the other nine models I have to paint into this step. Sadly, the news that the NFL and PA had settled completely unsettled my painting mojo again and I forgot about this mission. PS- football is coming back!!! Thank the Emperor.
