Small Successes

Little bits of progress on the Harlequins, got the orange on the Razorwing, a couple of the gunners and a Raider pilot today, then a touch up with nuln oil wash.

Just waiting for it to dry before adding black to the gunners and pilots and will also be dry brushing over the orange with red first then orange.

Objective Markers

I have a couple of bits the I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, so after a suggestion I've got them out and decided to use them as Objective Markers. There's the shield from the Bjórn Dread kit, the book from the metal librarian that will be repainted, the prototype Terminator, my old Company Master, a marine from the Glorious 1000 that I gave a spare autocannon to and "that" plasma gunner pose. That's 6 markers for the Imperial side of my collection. Now to find some for my Eldar...

Harlequins To Do List

Before I started to paint Azreil's Troupe I got the whole Masque out to judge what needs doing.

So I have 3 Troupes to do one for Poison Ivy that I'm looking at either Dryadds or treekin for this one, Skeleton which I was thinking either the Dark Elves with the skull face mask or Necrons and the troupe for Azreil that I readt to paint in the kitchen, the Death Jesters are getting high lights in the troupe colours, I also have the Death Jester for The Jokers Troupe that I want to add some colour to to get it to fit.

While I had the Masque out I thought I would give the Shadowseers something to tie them in with "their" Troupe, most likely paint the hair in the Troupes main colours.

I also got the Razorwing out, so as to give it some orange so it'll fit the Diplomatic Corps a bit better.

Next up orange.

I also want to repaint the pilot and gunner from these 2 Raiders black and orange to match the rest of the Raiders, as I changed my mind about having 2 different styles of pilots.

So this is the last bit to do, which is basically do the hair to match the Troupe.

No Real Plan

With being ill this past 2 weeks I've not had much inclination to do stuff, I got the Incubi done then ran out of steam, so I had a couple of days off.
On the weekend I was feeling better so started on the Fire Dragon Exarchs

I also painted the shield that comes with the pups Dreadnought. I'm running with this as an objective marker.

I got the Voidweaver done as well.

I also got an attack bike done, I think it looks so much better in black.

And finally the treeman kit arrived so I can start on Jussi Nietos new head and get on with Grandmother Telvig as well.

Planning on painting it in the style of a Spruce or a Scott's Pine.

New bulletin has gone live, featuring a new weapon option for the Contemptor, twin linked vulkites

And it looks like someone has jumped in and started an AoS Chaos Dwarf army.

11 Striking Scorpions

This week I'm still feeling dicey so I haven't been pushing hard on the painting front. I did promise myself that I would get the Incubi done this week.

I'm glad I mixed enough green to get 11 done.

With having 11 I had enough to do 2 Exarchs one I did with the Possessed Claw and the other I did with a counts as Biting Blade.

Labyrinth To Get A Board Game

Jim Henson Co. partners with River Horse for Labyrinth board game It kind of surprised me to find out that this is Alessio Cavatore's company and they did the recent Terminator Genisys: The Miniatures Game and Shuuro, an inventive spin on chess. Will I buy this, maybe I certainly look forward to seeing the Goblins More details are here

Striking Scorpion Exarch

Sat waiting on the postman to deliver another Wraith Lord and the Tree Man Ancient, so working on the 3rd Voidweaver and a counts as Exarch for my Exodite Striking Scorpions.

I cut the arm off an old Incubi, that hurt a little.

I then green stuffed the possessed arm on and left it to cure over night.

I dug out an old las pistol and green stuffed that onto the claw.

I then mixed Vallejo Sick Green and GW black in about a 3 to 1 ratio, I also hope I mixed enough to do all 10.

I added some screaming skull as a base for the yellow counter point colour

Plan A is to do the eyes black with yellow like flames around the eyes.

Just need to put the pipes on the back now and this is finished.

Bits And Bobs

I find myself in the middle of an oldhammer binge, I have painted this old Prototype Terminator for my Deathwing, on the base I've green stuffed some flag stones on the base as a simple enhancement

I'll dry brush some bone or skull on the flags later when the grey is dry. Not sure what I'm going to use it for.

I also painted this bike black next slow phase is 3 bikes, re paint the chaos bikes back to Ravenwing bikes.

And as a little side line I've added magnets and green stuff to the Sigmarine on the shield arm, hopefully this will look good when painted.

Boobs! Voidweaver! BOOBS!

With being a bit ill this week I've not felt like doing much.

Basically I stripped her

Filed off the palm weapon on the hand as it looked wrong for what I had in mind.

I cut a zypherglaive down to fit and so it wouldn't have any rouge hands

I removed the old metal support and replaced it with a Marine helmet that I later painted in the colours of my former Codex Chapter of Orange and Bone.

She has been finished for now .

The 2nd Voidweavers is ironically the 1st for the formation.

This has just 1 ribbon, denoting the 1st of 3 Voidweavers for The Diplomatic Core.
