I finished up the hills and a quick repaint of the desert and waste boards at my local store last Friday. The scatter terrain pieces got their base coats last night.

I also finished up the Firestorms, they got their last three orange highlights and their bases touched-up.

I was going to start in on my aircraft but I realized a painted army is within striking distance for Fall In, so I switched gears and got most of the way through my Farseer character upgrades. I need to add a highlight to the rune armor and bases, then highlight the black and do the gems. Any thoughts on what I should do for their topknots? Right now I'm leaning towards the same blue as their weapons.

I finished up the Farseer characters this week and started in on the Wraithguard. I'm hoping to bring a mostly painted Iyanden army to Fall In in November.

These progressed slightly faster than I would have thought. The guns and bases are all done, I'm hoping to take care of the black helms and the gems on them next week. The orange might take longer given the amount of cleanup I'll have to do from the drybrush.

Last week I managed to finish the black and gems on the Wraithguard, this week I shaded and touched up the orange and finished the highlights on half of them. The other six I hope to finish tonight or next Tuesday. It's a good thing too, twelve stands was the limit for me. I enjoyed painting these far less than six tanks.

With these done I hope to convert up some Wraithguard, start on those, and paint some subset of my objectives, Avatar and Phoenix Bombers before Fall In the first weekend of November.

And they're done. The last six stands took another two hours to highlight last night. They'll be fun to play with but I'm glad they're off the table. I started converting their big brothers after that, they, the Phoenix or objectives is what I'll be working on in these next weeks.

I also hit all the tanks I've painted to date with a gloss coat. I'm looking to print some decals out for them today, getting those on is another project before Fall In.

I gussied up the Eldar this week for a local store's painting competition. I got the decals on, black boxed them in, hit these guys with a few coats of dullcote and then added some grass tufts. This is six months of work to date, minus the Void Spinners which still need their guns and the treatment above. Hoping to start and finish the Wraithlords before Fall In still.

As I was finishing up my decal/dullcote/grass que I was also working on these guys. They involved a lot of cutting, pinning, plasticard and swearing at CA glue. All twelve had their arms and legs cut off. I pinned the legs after some creative bending and repositioning, and then puttied some ball and socket joints for the arms so they could be positioned any which way. The Bright Lances mounts were squares of plasticard that got some fancy cutting and filing.

Image

The Wraithseers were even more extensive. I used two 40k Space Marine knives a piece to create their staves and arm blades. As well as some Eldar grenades and strips of plasticard for the rest of the staves and loincloths.

Image

Image

This was one of my favorite conversions. I was trying to make it look like he's about to pound a vehicle or something.

It's been slow going due to some 1:1 scale projects, but I've made progress on the Wraithlords. Five are done, I've got another seven to do the orange highlights on and they'll be good as well.

Your highlighting, particularly on the vehicles, has really come a long way--very effective. (I'm jealous--I can't highlight for shit.)

Thanks mans.

It's been nearly a month since I picked up a paint brush what with Thanksgiving, vacation and newer hobbies but here we are. The Wraithlords are nearly finished. The biggest thing left are the Wraithseer blades, after that it's just touch up and basing. Hopefully I'll get to those before EpiComp entry closes at the end of the month.

Re: smeldar - 2017 Retrospective

Postby Evil Dave » Fri Jan 05, 2018 9:16 am

I meant to get these out last week, but there was much celebrating to contend with. Anyway, here's the Epic I managed to paint in 2017. The Void Spinners were kept out as I still need to finish their array barrels. Looking at them now, I also want to go back and add one more black panel to the Scorpions and Cobras near the front of the tank. For 2018, I hope to continue with yet more orange. I may take some breaks for sanity's sake to paint other colors though. Thankfully, the aspect warriors will help with that. Well, not the Fire Dragons. They're jerks.

Thanks man.

New year, same old color. This time on aircraft though! I started the Phoenix last night, and have been prettying the Avatar up for some paint. His sword got sharpened and he's based in such a way that I can plop him down on a Court of the Young King base when I get to it.
