I did also root out my old metal Assault Marines and run some Khorne red round the bases just to tie them in to my red planet base theme, I wonder if I should repaint the Milliput sculpted bases yellow too?
And I picked out all the rivets and red on the purity seals. I managed to finish by 11:40, which was good as I'd actually got into bed the previous night at that time and had a whole 6 hours and 40 minutes sleep. Unfortunately finishing painting and leaving the Man Cave are not the same thing, so an hour later...
Now that I've broken the 5 hour sleep barrier and I'm looking at 4 hours something, jeez is it worth it?
Anyway, they're progressing nicely whatever the deprivation does, and to think I used to be terrible when the kids were up all night and now I'm doing it of my own volition!
I've since done some more, but the pictures wouldn't show much, grenades, Purity Seals almost complete, 2nd sarge's cloak etc. but what's left?
Pin highlights [still] Eye lenses [there's only 4, so not sure why I'm putting it off] 2nd Sergeants head/eyes! Purity seals - sepia wash Litany script Names and numbers on shoulder pad
- Handlebar screens
- Plasma coils
- Red headlamp and OSL [v.nervous about this for obvious reasons! ]
- Base edge
- Orange weathering powder on tyres
Great work you are putting in there. But don't burn yourself out on it!ReplyDelete
Ha, ha, burn myself out, I'm pretty much in a state of constant burn out. Tired all day until about 10 and then it's 'ping' wide awake. I did take a night off yesterday though, still went to bed at 11:50ish!Delete
