Didn't sleep at all last night so was exhausted. Did some base work, and messed around with a white wolf. Not sure about this. Maybe with a blue tone wash?

Eh, just did some work on the Pirate Shock Troopers and the Ferroxes. Dark Tone wash and some speedpaint touch up on the former, some basic color blocking on the latter.Eh, just did some work on the Pirate Shock Troopers and the Ferroxes.

Few differences from last night. Finished the bases off, and the Horats are ready for varnish. Probably Pirate Shock Trooper detail tomorrow.Few differences from last night. Finished the bases off, and the Horats are ready for varnish. Probably Pirate Shock Trooper detail tomorrow.

Clipped the weird bit under the rhino front foot and reprimed, then put some red speedpaint on the Shock Troopers and one of the Ferroxes. Not much, but eh, is OK.Clipped the weird bit under the rhino front foot and reprimed, then put some red speedpaint on the Shock Troopers and one of the Ferroxes. Not much, but eh, is OK.

Crashing On...and Priming Complete

Did some work on the half-done Horats. Generally good, but a bit of clean up remains. The rain broke, and got the last Ferroxes primed, so everything is at least primed now!

Priming Is (Almost) Done - Charge!

Well, did the last of the brush-on priming on the Shengrylla, and the Pirate Shock Trooper joints. Wanted to do something else, so did some drybrushing and color on the Horats. Not really happy with the look yet; have to adjust the colors a bit. I do have four Ferroxes left to prime, but I just need a nice day to sneak out there.

Just some priming tonight. Ryankan are all ready to go. Just some Ferroxes and Shengrylla left on the 'to prime' pile. Oh, and some Pirate Shock Trooper elbows and wrists.Just some priming tonight.

Well, with green stuffing on second tails and third eyes to the Shengrylla, that’s everyone assembled, and they were already based. Tomorrow might be priming day, brushing on to the Ryakan and Shengrylla (and the bits of limbs I added to the Pirate Shock Troopers) and rattlecanning the Ferroxes. Once that’s done, it’s just painting forty-odd figures!

 

…just forty-odd figures, he says. Oh dear…

Assembled the last of the Ryankan, so all that’s left for assembly is the tails and eyes of the Shengrylla, which I just don’t feel like today. I primed the Pirates that needed brush on, though, so that’s another box knocked off. One more day this week, and then a short week next, then a week off; maybe I can get some major progress then.

Closer to Prime

Went out for supper, so assembly and priming tonight, but…well, we’re getting awfully close to everything assembled and based. Three shengrylla and one Ryankan are the holdouts. Probably by the end of the weekend.

I have a bunch I can still paint, but at some point we’re going to run up against the lack of the skin tones paint kit. Worst case, I’ll put the bestiary on hold and finish off my dino squad, or work on scenery bits.

Not feeling well again tonight, so just made a bit of progress then laid down. Some base work on the Ferroxes now the last two came in, and the Shengrylla (which I still have to modify for the third eye and second tail). Glued some Ryankan to posts and one to a base, and hit what needed priming with a layer since it’s a nice night. Time to crash.

I did progress: second layer of varnish on the Tanglers, the Sentrabots, and the last of the Magmites, second layer of primer on the Shock Troopers, first layer of primer on some Pirates and Primitives, and glued a Ryakan dragon onto a base…and then realized I should have primed first… Ah well.

Had a package to pick up, and was pleased to find it was North Star, which includes my last two pirates, finishing off my choices. Four from Reaper, two from North Star, and two Corregidor Jaguars. A motley crew, to be sure. Anyway, did the basing of them, and the last primitives. Also tested out the Glitter Green; I like how it looks on the Porigata back. Should be a fun paint.

Heat’s on the fritz at work and sucked the energy out of me. Barely qualifies today, but rattlecaned the Pirate Shock Troopers with primer and a bunch of stuff with varnish. Any port in a storm.

Good Enough™ on the Tanglers. Not brilliant, but neither am I. Off to the varnishing box, and I'm about half-painted, with a lot of the not painted yet at least assembled or primed.Good Enough™ on the Tanglers. Not brilliant, but neither am I.

If it wasn’t for the ‘at least do a thing’ streak, I dunno if I’d have sat down at all at the crafting table. Still, once down… Drybrushed the Tanglers with Pixie Pink, Monster Brown, and Skeleton Bone on the base. Added magnets under the Pirate Shock Troopers and a couple Ferroxes. Finally, glued some wings in place on the wrymling dragons I’m using as Ryakans. Nothing earth shattering, but the Tanglers will probably be ready for varnish after this weekend, Monday at the worst.

Tired on Friday, so just threw the Dark Tone on the brown area of the boys and their bases. Good enough.Tired on Friday, so just threw the Dark Tone on the brown area of the boys and their bases. Good enough.

Yeah, started on the Tanglers tonight (Bombshell Minis Edo Edolisks without wings on normal bases). Desert Yellow on the bases, and Pixie Pink on the suckers and brains, with a Purple Tone wash. I like where this is going.Yeah, started on the Tanglers tonight (Bombshell Minis Edo Edolisks without wings on normal bases).
