About the Project

I really need to start finishing stuff, my Work in Progress table isn't full, and I never want it to be full. In fact I want to empty it. On it at the moment is; 40k, the Repulsor, might never get get used, it's stupidly expensive, but I want it painted. Also the Ravenwing Command figures, and a couple of Watchers for my Deathwing. Victory at Sea, I have more Destroyers, some Submarines, and MTBs. Blood Red Skies, I have three Bombers, so I'll finally be able to do scenarios other than dog fighting. Bolt Action, Infinity, and even Dust Warfare,

Getting back to the Victory at Sea stuff, what with my receiving Ark Royal, and the Royal Navy Planes.

I’m adding the Treason TAG, and alt pilot to the project, they’ve been at this level since the week after Uprising came out.

It took all day, but I got these guys done. I can’t base them until the laser cutter gets in some clear blue acrylic, so he can cut me some bases. So yea, this is as done as I can get them. Of course there are still the varnish layers, but that’s as far as I can go.

Infinity stuff gets zenithal highlighted, yes I still hate how grey sprays, white too.

The Royal Navy was base coloured Dark Grey, except the S-Class Submarines, which were done in Medium Grey, which I also used for the camo colour for the boats, and ships.

Now I’m not good enough with the airbrush to trust doing the sea with it, so that will be hairy stick action.

It's the weekend again, today was mainly priming.

I started by assembling the Ryuken Unit9 figures for my Infinity army(JSA), with the intention of getting them primed when I started priming more of the WIP stuff. I did start the priming with the Infinity stuff.

Then I got the Victory at Sea done, but also the V1 for Blood Red Skies.

A new day, I gave her a scrub with a nylon brush, which didn’t work, so I switched to a wire brush.

To go along with my Saracens, I have some Saladins. These are armed with the Phaser weapons, I think 180W, because of course I play Allies. because the cast wasn’t great, and the 3d printed power generator for the phaser on the side of the turret was especially bad, I decided to do the rust effects thing. A shame I did that so long ago, and none of it was included in this, but coming back to it, from the green base coat after all the reds were complete is where we started.
From there I did the shading. I used Vallejo’s BlackGreen Model Air colour for this.

Then I did a highlight layer using Vallejo’s highligh colour #252, which is super subtle in the photo.

Then I did the final highlight with #225

Next I did the tires in black, and the phaser in gloss black

And then finally, jet exhaust over the gloss black. Now it’s ready for a scrub to wear away some of the paint, but it’s dinner time, so it’s a job for tomorrow.

I spent most the day de-motivated, doing nothing. but after giving up on cleaning the E-Scooter, I found some motivation. The easy thing to do next would be the Bombers; firstly I pulled them apart, the kit says it doesn’t need glue, but it’s a good idea to any way. I’ve used the grey primer, I do prefer to use grey on my historical vehicles. I won’t get more done, as even though these are plastic, I’ll still leave them to cure for a day, but I should be able to look into camouflage colours through the week. I’ve made it easy for myself be getting the 105sq decals from miscmini.

Next weekend is a long weekend for Easter, but it’s made extra long thanks to my CS MedOnc Review on the Thursday. So I should get them done over that.

Contrast paints make this so easy, I’m not good at painting, and I should have done more layers with highlights and such, but I’m also lazy. I did notice while painting him that he’s missing his scabbards, but with how bad I am at this game, he won’t have a chance to put those swords away.

Okay, so while I wait for the paint for the Repulsor, Infinity seems to be picking up again at Club, and hey I’ve only done a couple of the figures from the Uprising stuff that came out years ago, and so time to get more done. This was the worst miniature to assemble, it took me at least three goes, and even now it’s not quite right, but I no longer care. Daiyokai actually got primed last weekend, but I can really only get any painting done every second weekend. Today after finishing off the Transports for my Armoured Infantry platoon(Dust Warfare), and basing a couple of figures, which I didn’t include in this. Of course I primed black like normal, with the intention of zenithal highlighting, and the grey went down so nicely, silly me neglected to take a photo of that, and the the white…
I can’t be the only one who hates White.
