Project Rolling – Update #8

Since last I posted.  Some cleanup and family stuff…

Thursday, I had high hopes of getting back on the painting bicycle.  I got a phone call while I was having coffee.  A friend needed some help with some cleanup.  It took a lot of the day and after I wasn’t in any shape to paint.  C’est la vie …

Out of the house pretty early.  First thing to do was do some assembling on a BFF.  If you don’t remember, Lost Hemisphere has a series where people paint a Caster and a Jack/Beast, pictures, some tactics, maybe a story…  Pretty much whatever the painter/writer wants to do.  I started working on the large base (no I am not telling you what they are).  Legs, body, head pinned, mold marks trimmed, extra stuff glued to the arms etc…  Pull out the caster, start trimming mold marks.  Damn, there is part of the body that is miscast.  Part of the model has a hole in it..   Took picture.  Posted to PP parts service.  Hope to have the part in a week to ten days.

I am waiting for a Magnus1 for an exchange.  Special ordered it two weeks ago.  Nope, it didn’t come in today.  Not critical to get it now.  Just lookin’ forward to doing those individual models.

I pulled out the Venator Slingers.  The gold need to be tipped.  Solid Gold does a good job with a little dry brushing.  A couple of spots needs some Skorne Red.  Bootstrap leather on the shoulder belt and parts of the sling, followed with a black wash.  The rest of the sling and the bottom of the acid jars are Brass Balls.  The swords get Skorne Red and Solid Gold, the grip on the pommel got some Idrian Flesh and the whole thing got a P3 brown ink wash (2 drops ink, 2 drops Mix Medium 4 drops flow mix).  The rest of acid jars got some Menoth White Highlight. I let that dry and washed it with a green/yellow Ink mix that I use for Cryx green glow.  It shows up really well in the photos.  Not quite so bright on the table.  The skin was 50/50 Jack Bone & Menoth White Highlight.  There are some tiny touch ups on the swords.  I like to do a final once over before I clearcoat models.  I might need just a little more shading on the skin too..

So, I am calling the slingers done.  Tomorrow there is a Breast Cancer Brawl I am going to attend.  Sunday, have to wait and see.

Till next time…
