The addiction grows... Red Veil

I play with a group that do not paint normally. This drives me nuts as I want the immersion of fully painted forces and great terrain.

I gave my chosen from the Ice Storm box to one friend and kept my Pano.

Another friend gave me the part of his drop fleet pledge so I needed to repay this “debt” I chipped in with another friend who got the same and we got Red Veil for him.

I started by gabbing the biggest model out of the box and started to paint, Al Fasid.

I followed the steps in Masterclass volume 2.

Started by doing the bases all of the infinity are on  this is done with plasticard cut into strips to make a kerb. Green stuff textured with the base of a needle file.

This was thought about after an exciting discussion with a environmentalist who hated pavements and roads. It came to the conclusion that compacting earth and treating this with something could be an alternative.  I argued that this would not be great for vehicle traffic so a compromise was made, then my infinity bases.

I then cleaned up the model as best as I could see and used Vallejo plastic putty for the first time to fill any gaps and I hate to say this is great! You can water it down and dries pretty fast.

First stages done with airbrush then onto brush painting.



So I though I was clever followed the process but I forgot about light.  I Went back and updated the Visor so that the highlight was at the bottom and the shade at the top due to the overhang.

I went onto paint the rest of the Haqqislam using similar steps and still using the book.

Haqqislam finished. Haqqislam finished.

I then went and started the Yu Jing, using old GW paint pots and Bluetack as ever to try and stop me rubbing off the paint while painting.

I have handed this over now to one happy gamer. I feel like I am going to be given more models to paint to expand these forces.
