I've been busy doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that! Undercoating here, highlighting there, basing materials scattered liberally across the painting table as the washes dry.
I found this image online. Its a photograph of our skeleton chariot from Bryan Ansell's collection. You can see the stars of our show here as well as a curious additional. Anyone recognise the horseheaded scythe wielder on the front row? I have never seen that model before; a conversion or something else?
I have greenstuffed up most of the holes and crevices on my chariot. To be honest, I left quite a few of these, especially if they are not going to be seen. I gave the the completed kit a liberal spray of Army Builder black to avoid a moaning spouse (she hates the smell and has a knack of noticing it days after I have used it).
If you recall, I had misplaced Longhorn when I originally cleaned up the models. Here he is in all his glory. The wife had her best friend over tonight and subsequently (despite a few interruptions to make tea etc) I have had two and a half hours of blissful painting. I fiddled with my Rogue Trader orks for a while before moving on to this beauty. Happily, he painted up smoothly and I have just finished him.
What do you think?
Hopefully, I can get another model done tomorrow and can make a start on the primary colours of the chariot itself. Its the first time I've painted such a large model in this way and I am a little, what's the word, trepidicious, about tackling it.
Any advice for painting up a large model quickly?
Otherwise, the only other thing I've managed today is scan a number of Rogue Trader dioramas on the sister blog, check it out of you are interested. http://warhammer40000roguetrader.blogspot.co.uk/
