A few days ago I popped over Stuarts to do a little painting. It reminded me of the good old days of my youth when such activities were more common. I'd pack up all my paints (inside the Citadel Colour boxes), a few miniatures and my paint brushes and cycle, with my stuff dangling in a plastic bag from the handlebars of my bike, as I rode my way to my friend in question's home.
These days, I go by car!
Stuart was keen to get working on miniatures again - inspired I think by what he had seen during the Oldhammer Weekend - and had mooted working on a Nurgle Warband. We talked at length about how I go about preparing a model for painting and introduced the concept of ink glazes and washes.
I had brought along and model that Stuart had asked me to paint months ago and challenged myself to paint it in an hour. So setting up my paints, and balancing my watch where I could easily see it I began.
Again, Stuart wanted something Nurglesque...
Here is the front view of the beastman after one hour's painting. I had McDeath with me as I was finishing off his shield, in case you are wondering.
The rear shot (steady Chico) of the two models. If you are wondering how long I spent on McDeath - at a guess, its was probably closer to three hours painting time over several days. You will also notice that the beastman's base isn't complete. I hadn't actually sanded it when I started work, so decided to take the model home for completion later.
