Another Project? Is two enough, is six to many…..
Over the years, I have slowly accumulated quite a bit of Menoth. It is stored under my desk with the rest of the unpainted stuff. That picture shows you about half of it. A lot of it was trades or buying second hand stuff.
In a paint & swap in 2011, I got a Thyra. Well, I got a painted Kreoss. A fabulous paint job. He also gave me Thyra. He started painting her and didn’t finish. So, she sat under my desk for three years.
I occasionally look around in several forums to see what people have painted. A few months ago I saw this!!! Specifically the Daughters of the flame. The white Menoth paint scheme just never did it for me. I have seen a lot of Black Menoth. Nope, to dark, to flat, I never saw one with shading like these.
I can do a dark grey. I really didn’t like the purple and I thought the standard Sanguine would really look sharp. Maybe a little more dark gold than the Jolly Roger Studio models. The gears start turning. A friend did a quick photoshop. Normally, I paint the caster as a test model, but one of the sword tassels was broken off, so I ordered the parts. I didn’t want to do a whole unit of Daughter as a test. So, Nicia got the nod.
I am really happy with how she came out. Ambidextrous Toucan is not stopping. I finished another model this week. I will slowly mix in some Charcoal Menoth once and a while.
I had to base her too. I really like the crackle plaster bases for Menoth.
I have been using a sheet like the ones below to track progress on projects. The color code is at the bottom. I am not sure about the jack mix for this list, so I will paint more than I need.
I will probably do Thyra next. As soon as the parts come in. One thing is certain. I will NOT be doing four units of Daughters all at once.
As always, comment, criticisms and suggestion are always welcome.
Until next time,
Just Do It!!!
