I was gonna paint my Goliath forge tyrant for this but I made life hard for myself and this morning decided to make something from scratch! The brief was to build something that sums up Necromunda and it’s absurdity, channel John Blanche and get it painted by the deadline! Here’s where I’m at 0100pm Melbourne time!

Not much, but I stayed up late to get some paint on. The idea is the chaos colors (blood and bone) are seeping into the original World Eaters colors.

ok, @Howie. I have to ask: how do you do your eyes!?!

Hey dude! Usually with lots of breath holding and swearing :D I paint the socket black then do two downward whitstripes either side of where the pupil should be. Then outline the bits the white went over again with black - my guys all use eye liner - before tidying everything up with the skin tone. Before the last step they look like members of Kiss! That's when things go right btw, which is rarely. Usually there's lots of back and forth moving the lines about and reinforcing the black stripe in the middle. Using Vallejo air black and white paints helped me a bunch as the consistency is perfect out the pot. But yeah, mostly breath holding and swearing!

hmm.. may have to give that a shot. i usually go straight to white, then give them an iris of color, and fix the massive mutant eyes with the flesh because i've over-painted. (the breath holding and cursing we seem to have in common). a lot of the time, my eyes still come out huge (maybe not anime eyes huge, but still that's not human size) or get nearly wiped out by over-zealous fixing.

I got quite a bit of painting done this morning on the 1:1 scale linear line of sight blocker between my neighbour's garden and mine. That's a more traditional bank holiday pursuit, but not exactly worthy of Yakday.

I also got some primer applied to these four models:

View media item 46794
View media item 46681
Unfortunately, I probably won't get to an interesting stage of any of them today, but this is my contribution to the day anyway.

Not a great deal of actual painting.
One of the Yakling's got this MDF loader 6 months ago, we assembled and base coated it for today!

The we played a game, for the Yak!
Did a take on the rogue cop scenario from Dec white dwarf, with the kids controlling attackers and defenders. I was the random element of some zombies... with added bonus of every kill automatically creating an extra zombie.
Good fun, the rogue cop managed to escape despite the Boy Yakling rolling 4x 1's in a row to shoot in the first turn....
Was also my first chance to put the Metromorph terrain together for a game!

I have to admit - I totally slept in this morning and even more totally forgot that it was Easter!! o_O:LOL::giggle:
(I didn’t get mrs dangerous an egg and she ain’t happy!)

I have been painting however, while the machine was on charge, so I’ll be back soon with a WIP!
Great work Everyone! And happy actual Yakday for all of my fellow UK Yaks!
