Where the HECK have I been?!?! Yeah, I know. Unusual for me. I took a bit of a holiday. A couple days in hospital and a couple days in Sarasota, unannounced and unexpected. But, the Ol' Rednekk is back! And here's what's on my workbench....
***I should probably mention.... I wasted 6 hours.Yes, 6. Trying to get the lozenge camoflage right Not as easy as it might look. To work, you have to be very rigid and stick to the color distribution. Something that is EXTREMELY hard to do when drawing in pencil on a Leman Russ. Can it be done? Yes. But, you do it before you put on any stowage and as frightening as the idea of decal sheets of printed camoflage material sound, I think I'd rather give that a try than painting it... thus I started over. BUT... I managed not to lose my sh*t and throw any of the tanks against the wall, even after trying to paint them. Lesson learned... even at my age.**
The plan for the front panel, is to "rust it up" a bit and put the Icon on there which will be in a muted sickly tanned green. Since the Sons of DOOooom do use the rusted Iron Fly icon I am really leaning towards that. Its a bit more original that the Vraks Chaos star and these guys are pretty much devoted to one God.... the stinky one. For those that may not have looked into the archives, here's a pic of how this camo pattern comes together, though I may be adding a step this time around and tweeking the colors.
Time consuming? Yes. But simpler than it looks once you get the pattern in your head. But as you can see, the light colors are blocked in a lot heavier than on the Leman Russes above. Meaning I will either block in More Iraqi Sand or add the Rotting Flesh tomorrow.
ONE MORE THING.... the SENTINALS!
That's it from the Workbench of now! Still have to finish some artwork for ya'll, but there's likely to be more progress on the tanks before then. Not to mention, if you are as big of a geek as I am, this weekend's TV viewing will be AWESOME... and I ain't talking about no freekin' basketball. The Ol' Rednekk will be looking for Time Lords,Zombies,Dragons and my favorite short person named Tyrion. :)
