From the Workbench: The Most Basic of Colors

I finally got some hobby time. I started to block in some colors on the Apostles of Quetza Razorback team.  Its the first coat of the basic under colors.

I have decided not to do the weapon casings in jade. I'm going to go with an obsidian instead for the ranged weapons.  In the long run, we'll be looking at end results more like these real world examples...

Lots more detailing to do, but I actually have some time to work on it this week.... for a change. :)

OH....WTF?!?!  GW needs to slow their roll. Knock it off I'm trying to not buy more minis!  When they put out stuff like this, I know its going to make me add to the mountain of unbuilt ork stuff I have.  (I'm really getting the itch to build some ork... and chaos stuff, these loyalists make me feel dirty)

This guy has got Mega Armor written ALL over him. Of course, he'd be converted and painted in a proppa Rednekkz rusty red and blue. Can't have none of those uppity Bad Moonz runnin round here

And for anyone who might be wondering.... Beware of Goblins in Dirty Lab Coats....

Cheers Ya'll.

Its been a crazy couple of weeks. The Flu (because Grandfather Nurgle LOoooooooooves me... well, that and all the tourists bringing their germs to the Land of Mickey.) and a ton of artwork, which I'm still doing.  Like this guy, who is probably too close to Goblins while they play with chemistry.... 

I did get some Terracota paint, which will serve as the base color for the brown parts of the Apostles of Quetza.  I'll likely alter the original paint scheme a little. Da Kunnin' Plan is to do designs on all the terracota areas. I'm also rethinking the whole Demi-Company thing... and might just stick with the force as is, but we'll see.  Definitely some other projects I want to get to finishing as well.  The grand plan will involve selling off most of my stuff in the long run, so I may do a couple Raptor things to complete that army and have it ready for sale.

Next week, I'll be giving the art/hobby room an overhaul. Partly because its in dire need and partly because I have to replace the window in there ... thanks to bad golfers.  So that'll likely be the next post along with some base painting on the Apostles.

Cheers Ya'll!

Its Boring, but Necessary.

Priming is D.O.N. E.

 First, a coat of  rust red spray primer. Then, the messy part. An all over heavy wash of a 50/50 dark brown/black mix.  The Apostles of Quetza ( or what I have built, that is)  will be ready for the painting process in a few hours. There's artwork that needs doing, plus a few doctors appointments for me and the dog, but I have a long "weekend" (my weekends start on Sunday or Monday) so there should least.. be some base coating and a spec model in the works by mid week.

And there is something angry creeping around my hobby room.  More on that next time.

Cheers Ya'll!
