Just a quick progress report on THAT Rhett Bastid! He's proving to be quite the bastid.... or its a bastid trying to get him to look the way I want him to. Not sure which. LOTS of time with the reading glasses, 10/0 brushes and wash after wash later, here's what I have at the moment.
Work has begun on the Destroyer Hive. I also decided to dull down the scythe to get more of a rotten/poison look. Just base colors on Elvis at this point, he'll be last. Rhett is about 80% done. The armor is mostly done. I have to fix his big eye a bit, but after that its details - skulls, blight head, piddly bits on the base, etc. Then onto Elvis.
A detail shot. I'm not happy with the eye shape, so I'll fix it to give it a more comic/diabolical look....rather than the far too friggin round look it has now. I'll probably add a little "eye glow" since he's in mid-spell/controlling his not-so-dead minions. Armor needs to be chipped and made a bit more filthy,etc as well. The only problem with him being part of the painting challenge on Bolter & Chainsword is I'm spending all my time on him. So, don't be suprised if you see dome plaguebearer mass production or two vehicles at a time painting in the next post. Yeah, I have until the Ides of January, but my second part-time gig is retailand Christmas will be in the midst of that, so December will suck. I really need to get a different gig, it just ruins holidays OR make more money at the home business. Hopefully, the latter will start happening in the coming months. :) More soon.
