I would like to get more painting updates here more regularly. A full-time job and family obligations come first though so if you're still with me, I really appreciate sharing my hobby with all of you.
Here is some work I've been up to. First you'll find some Alpha Legion Dreadnoughts in progress. They will accompany that horde of tanks I did a while back. This group I've put some of the things I learned at Adepticon about airbrushing, but unfortunately I am limited by Createx Airbrush Paints, which I am finding are not ideal for miniatures as they dry slowly and don't mix well with watered down alcohol like GW or P3 paints do.
Still I've been able to speed up the process by getting all the blue areas colored and all the parts I want black, mostly black. It's now time for a traditional brush.
The client actually lost some of the Forgeworld Dreadnought heads for these so I converted up some replacements - chaos terminator heads fixed in place by building a housing from the terminator torsos. I think it will add some character and uniqueness to the group. Once fully painted, that is.
Now here is another work in progress that I have on the side for the moments I need a break from Dreadnoughts. He's a practice model in a way. I learned a lot about blending in Fontaine's Blending Class at Adepticon and I'm working to put what I learned into practice, though as you can see - I need lots of practice. At least I know one thing well, in all things including miniature painting, the road to success is a series of failures. About the miniature - He is a Shaolin Monk for my Yu Jing Infinity collection. I really like these guys in the game - they're definitely cannon fodder but can have their shining moments.
