'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.
