So this morning, I went down to Cwmbran Games Workshop and picked up a couple of pots of Astrogranite, the texture paint. Wow. I love the stuff! Slap it on, give it a while to dry, badab black it, then some of the new Administratum Grey drybrushed and you've got nice and easy bases, which with 4 days left before I go to Warhammer World is the best thing ever. And heres why.
Today I managed to get all these based while painting some other things too.
A whole tactical squad based, 4 characters, and two dreads done. Along with making a kit bash techmarine, painting said techmarine, and adding some other details I think I've done pretty damn good today. This doesn't include taking into account the 2 hour nap I had this afternoon. Score!
So the chaplain dread is coming along nicely, not much left to do I'm happy to say! Finally got some stuff on the base and its helped bring it out even more. The broken rhino hatch still needs some wear and tear and a bit of highlighting, but not much else
Assault of the Ancients anyone? Hence why I need a techmarine!
HQ choices, from left is Orneus Gyozo, Vincent Eniko, and Kyrann Locke. Really liking how everything looks together.
This is my new techmarine, kitbashed from tactical sprue, devastator sprue, and the vehicle accessory sprue. Oh and a terminator thunder hammer for good measure! He's not great don't get me wrong, but he shall do! He'll be leading my dreads into battle, so fingers crossed he'll survive a turn.
Tomorrow, I'm aiming to get the terminators and another tactical squad based, and hopefully get the land raider a little more finished. Time will tell! Plus after a nice big sunday dinner I may not be able to sit upright. Tis a challange I'm relishing though!
