I'll be honest I was gutted. It was too dark on the bone and not dark enough on the metals. It was enough to quell any enthusiasm for this project. I was also painfully aware of just how scruffy some of my other details were and it was killing it for me.
The fact is it looked nothing like this when it was we but the bone was just all wrong and I steadfastly refused to acknowledge my most important rule of painting - don't judge the finished quality of the model you are painting until you have finished painting it or more simply - don't judge your miniature until it's finished.
The fact is I eventually put paint to these, adding the first set of bone highlights and it's not beyond saving.
I'll share those pics eventually but these 2 Terminators, and the Deathwing Knights are still a challenge for me.
I've noted it takes around 40 minutes to highlight one terminator. I manage about one a night and fit in some of my Adeptus Titanicus bits too. I've 3 more to highlight before I can share their current WiP shots - I just want these done and off the pile.
