I then went in with some more highlights on the scroll and picked out the rivets in bonewhite, which matches my greenwing.
I'd pencilled in the name beforehand so I knew it could fit. With these sotrs of things it's always best to start in the middle and work your way out unfortunately I still managed to cramp up the end with a large amount of space at the beginning! It's not pretty but I surprised myself by achieving it so I can live with the less than stellar penmanship ;)
In another session I added some extra highlights on the bronze on the carapace, I also did the shoulder panels too but need to do the rest of the metallics and also on the Ravenwing. If I can get all these metal highlights done that will be a massive step forward. Having completed some of the panels it would join up with those elements still to highlight and the end would almost be in sight, it;s very exciting.
I also spent a session blocking in the chevrons on the Gatling Cannon and fist, I may well wish I'd gone orange and black at some point but these will ultimately be yellow and black, with the frotn of the cannon being all black which I'll decorate with decals.
Again, this shouldn't be my focus as it can't feature in my Double Trouble list but I'm just going with the flow and with it not being the sole thing I'm painting in any given session I don;t feel too guilty about it's inclusion in my schedule.
Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 |
Looking good Dave! I am having exactly the same problem. I'm supposed to be painting Tau for Double Trouble but somehow I am assembling another Knight and Cult Mech. I think I am just feeling the need for more red planet bases there. Luckily the weather has stopped me spraying the new things so I am forced to get back to Tau at the moment!ReplyDelete
Good luck with all your efforts. Ultimately it all needs doing so we can both take comfort in that, as we line our unpainted models up on the battlefield :)Delete
It's a problem we all suffer! I've got a doubles tournament in May yet I'm building my new knight instead of painting bikes!ReplyDelete
Hard to ignore the draw of the Knightly Houses! :)Delete
It certainly is, though I've managed to last since the latest codex came out, so it's about time I dived in!Delete
Great work on the name plate, mine is still glaringly empty :-(ReplyDelete
That brass work looks amazing, I really like the dark, worn look.
Its always rewarding and frustrating doing the mettallics. Usually it comes out really well and I kind of enjoy doing it but I can never get myself motivated for it. Currently all my Ravenwing and Knight are stuck at this stage. Just a small push to overcome this hurdle would have a huge impact on my view of what's left to do and getting them done - perseverance is the key.Delete
