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.

This post comes from Imperius Dominatus and seems to be pretty comprehensive. Check out the new Sistas and let me know what you think!
