Babysitting. Ideal activity to paint more miniatures! My Saim-Hann Eldar are nearing completion. Brings a big smile to my face.
You might have noticed I am painting batches of armies worth 600 points. The amount of miniatures to paint can be overseen and does not discourage the painter. It also is a good amount of miniatures to fight a battle with. However, I did try to choose units that are typical for each type of army. For the Eldar you have the Guardians and transports with support weapons and Dreadnoughts as benchmark. To add something special I added a Fireprism.
The tanks are now finished. I painted the weapons and mechanics black and sometimes watered down the paint. No highlights for the black parts. I did use a flesh color to highlight the red areas.
(Pictures are never perfect, but I guess you can see this miniature is tabletop-ready.
Not a single bare metal miniature hits my gaming table.That's why I go for tabletop-quality painting. More detail would take me too long.)
The infantry bases need a strong contrast green grass or flock. It will bring out the tiny red figurines. The scenery bases of the Jetbikes will be a combination of dark grey ruins and green grass.
That's why I don't base my tanks. They are finished when the paint is done. Infantry has bases, and those need flock. Extra work!
Anyway, another army nearly finished. I have already picked my next army: the Imperial Guard.
In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.
