Random painting continues... good old battle masters provides a unit of reiksguard for non silly prices! I think I will replace the banner though once I get some printer ink for a proper reiksguard one.
I have become pretty quick at getting a standard I am happy to play with, I’m sure others would be horrified with them though ha ha. Base coat, wash, one highlight / dry brush, details, base, and done. Suits me fine! I figure if I paint enough stuff folks won’t notice the crappier models!
Some of the other random stuff I painted, some tomb kings skeletons for WHQ, first unit from the Ogres box, contrast skinks, and some mutants and a crew for Zona Alfa that I’d like to play someday.
Lovely work, man. While quantity has a quality all its own, you're still really neat and nicely presented. I fight a constant war with myself. Every army I start there's a voice in the back of my head that tells me 'You must paint this to the best of your ability all the way through'. That voice must be curb-stomped. It is evil and the enemy of progress.
Ha ha yes I agree! I don’t really know how ‘tabletop standard’ has become a veiled insult to be honest... they are for the tabletop so what other standard should we be aiming at ha ha. Horses for courses though I guess. I don’t really get a buzz from seeing the really beautifully painted golden demon minis, my thing is the large armies, I love seeing a big chunk of painted toys so quality by necessity has to take a dip. But I am happy with the level I’m at. I’ve done a few ‘hours per mini’ models before but they look the same as the others in my dimly lit garage and I much prefer speed painting another 20 goblins ha ha!
Yes the banners were fun to paint, even though they were a pain in the bum to convert every banner to take a paper banner. Been practicing on the moulded plastic banners to make my life easier going forward.
Many thanks! The Undead are my longest standing army and will always have a special place in my heart... obviously the new mounted Wight King means it’s not actually finished anymore though! GW rascals.
I also did another thing... finally took the plunge and bought a resin 3D printer... after much frustration and tinkering I have my first print done and painted, an Empire War Wagon. It’s got me itching to get stuck into my Empire backlog next.
