'nids part 188 - Termagants - baker's half dozen - the other half

A quick one, following up on the first half of the baker's dozen I completed the second half, still to do:
  • Bonewhite highlight 1
  • Bonewhite highlight 2
  • Claws and hooves
  • Adrenal glands
    • Tweak any fleshy bits [ie red bits and tongues]
  • Eyes and teeth 
    • Eyes on the Fleshborers too!
  • Bonewhite chips on base
  • Edge base
  • Varnish
  • Glossy FXs and any blood
  • Yellow flock
I think that's everything with a deadline of 10th March

While I was at it I finished off the arms and torso on these five Stealers, just one brood of five left to basecoat with Bonewhite. On the plus side I've shaved off a day/session for each brood  - a 33% time saving. Of course I didn't allocate time to some things and I've doubts on my estimates for others but we'll see how it goes.

I know this is more like a production line,  that it's quantity over quality but progress has been so slow on all my other projects [or at least seems that way] it's great to switch it up a bit and crank these out. Hopefully I'll return to the Dark Angels with renewed vigour upon their completion.


  1. Production line or not, those look really nice.

  2. Production lines get things done! Seriously, they are looking great. I wish I could get that level when I batch paint.
