DiceWraith’s Pigs Update #3 – HobbyStreakDay works – Going Home!

After I made the Helga post, I saw a post with #hobbystreakday(number). It didn’t take long to figure out that, it was a motivational trick, do a half hour of painting, assembling or whatever and post it…

So, I started on Monday. A couple of hours on 6 light piggy beasts seemed like enough. Tuesday was more work on the six pack-o-boars. All the base colors are done. Just needs some details and touch ups.

Wednesday was busy, but I got an hour and started basecoating 11 Brigands.

Thursday got the Brigands almost done. Friday the Brigands got Blue Mohawks.

Saturday the Brigands got some brass and touchups, done. Two Gun Boar got done too…

I like #HobbyStreakDay#

There is the full list of Dicewraith’s Pigs. It might get models added down the road, but today I shipped them all back to him. Piggies go home 🙂 Not all of the pigs, but it is enough to play some games with.

Carver got some metal and other upgrades, he was all steel, so I added some brass & bronze. His fur on his shoulder was flat so I added some highlight. Made his talisman look like stone. Carver does NOT have a pink Mohawk. He is the boss, he doesn’t get marked.

Dr. A got more color. I made his three tanks different colors. Metal upgrades and no Mohawk on the  old man.

S&D got a major change. Steel all the time got different metals. The tanks on his back got Pink & Blue. The fur is brown (not pink). Each head has a Mohawk, well kind of, pink & blue.

Midas didn’t need much. He got a Mohawk and so did his weapon.

Helga got painted, she doesn’t like the be bossed around. An independent woman. She has Red cloths not Purple. Well, her Red has Purple accents. She doesn’t like the Mohawk, but puts a little bit of pink in her hair.

Dicewraith already has a Targ that I painted for him years ago.

All of the beast now have pink or blue Mohawks.

The War Hogs didn’t need much more that a touch up, one blue Mohawk and gluing an arm.

Road Hogs got metal changes, pink and blue Mohawks and pinned the broken weapons. Shipping them loose to be assembled later.

Light beasts all needed painting, Mohawks such. I tried to do different skin color on all of them.

Two Gorax for Dr. A had some paint on them, I finished them up and gave them Mohawks.

Razor Boar need pink Mohawks on half of them and some small highlights.

Piggy Roller was assembled and painted. Fun model to do. A lot of metal and some wood. Left the turret loose for dicewraith to glue or leave as is.

Maximus is a pain in the ass to assemble. Those tiny little tusks are so hard to attach without making his face into a glue glob. I’m happy with him and his sword. I fully painted him.

Rorsh & Brine didn’t need much

Bone Grinders got fully painted,

Brigands started with 6 pink ones, I added the UA and painted 4 more. Then added 11 blue mohawks for the second unit.

Slaughterhousers started pretty well done. I made one unit blue mohawks. Then added some reddish bronze all of them to make the metals not so uniform.

The piggies are gone, but have no fear, there will be more. Well, if Dicewraith is happy with them.

Just for the record, #HobbySteakDay is at day #40. I think it works.

Till next time,

Just do it…..
