So I upped and decided to go Angel Green all over and it was much better than the first application. So now I need to do some edge highlights and then it'll be [a whole lot of] detail work and any battle damage I decide to do.
Meanwhile Pod 2 is ready for it's Waaargh Flesh highlights, even if I do like it pretty much as is :( Still, trust in the plan.
Once pod 1 has been highlighted I'll spend my efforts bringing this pod up-to-date so they can progress together again.
I think I'm back on track again with these, I just have to ensure I don't flit to something else so that the 'fires of motivation' don't go out or 'strike while the iron is hot'. But I'm getting there and it is progress so that's a win.
