So as it was with Curt i have found new inspiration to paint after playing DoW2. This weekend I have been aiming to be as relaxed as possible, and painting really does keep your mind off of things…
So, after seven hours of X-Files yesterday I managed to paint up almost my entire second squad. I have all of their main area’s done, just have some small details left on their boots and flashlight guns (I thought you would laugh at that comment Curt). Then it’s a matter of painting their imperial insignia’s and their done. The one thing that gets me though is I spent all this time doing it assembly line style and I missed a guy. *Smack Head*. My second vox-caster troop got left behind when i grabbed my men. So I unfortunately still have one soldier sporting undercoat black, sexy.
I am totally psyched to get them finished up today and display two done squads. I still need to go over all of them for fine details, but they will atleast be table ready. Once i finish them up today i think i will be working on the Leman Russ next. If i apply what I have learned so far about painting to the tank I think it will look pretty damn fantastic, that’s my hope anyways.
So I am now officially starting to shop around for my command squad and possibly a kasrkin squad to act as stormtroopers. Although no matter what by the end of February I will have my command squad, so by March I should atleast be able to field a 500 point “army”. There is so much to buy!
I do think I will need to buy stock in brushes though. No matter how careful you are with them they still really don’t take that long until they end up in the “whatever” pile of brushes. Although I know I am getting better at taking care of them cause this last fine detail brush has been going strong for a good while now.
Come on Carl! I will need something to shoot at soon! I will be organizing the back half of my basement into my little gaming area this week. Chris’s old kitchen island i took years ago is going to be my gaming surface/worktable. The surface, as is, is already about two and a half feet by four and a half feet. I may modify it a bit to make it larger 😉 . So I will finally be starting work on terrain soon, I can’t wait. Been looking at model railroader magazine for some inspiration. Muahahaha!
