Today was a clearcoating day for me.

Here in the Midwest our Spring times are basically rain, mist, and rapidly changing temperatures. If you want your models to look decent, you need to wait for the right day to spray them, and those days never seemed to coincide with my work schedule.

So, I ended up with a backlog of 72 marines and a Landraider. All painted and not sealed. I sealed them ALL in one go using Krylon Matte ultra clear ($2.50 per can and sprays very fine with a 10 minute dry time).

My wife comes home and instantly gets furious, as the smell of that many freshly painted models was a bit overpowering in the home, even though I painted them outside.

Hobby been bit of a backburner few days due to chess but today continued 2 doom scythes and command/annihilation barge. Also work on transcendant c'tan conversion from nightbringer. Head and arms replaced by some random d&d fire elemental and couple wood elf tree bits to represent flames/energy whips. Coupled with totally different colour scheme to my nightbringer hopefully distinct enough.

Decals and overcoating are my hobby plan for this very wet day. I may have to skip out on the final dull coat as I'm worried about the humidity though.

Tried out contrast paints at the weekend. They were fun but I don't think I'll be using them extensively as an army painting tool, more so for glazing as the high pigmentation was quite nice.



Today I'll be doing some painting of some kind, I have a few projects to catch up on!

Yea, it’s a pig of a model to paint that CB

I’ve just finished assembling the last bits from Shadowspear. I got bored about 3/4 of the way through and left it for months, but got sick of looking at the box with only 6 models left to build in it.

Androgynous Daemon Prince of Slaanesh





Norwalk, Connecticut

Working on my converted Hedonite Bladebringer on Exalted Chariot. I bought a second Syll'Esske model, split them up, and Syll is getting mounted on a chariot. Esske has been graced with wings, a Slaanesh claw, and a KoS blade to become a regal looking Daemon Prince of Slaanesh. Honestly, I don't think I could ever go back to using the bigger Daemon Prince models for Slaanesh ones now. They should be lithe and svelte.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Got a crazy good deal on a necron auction that included a lot of OOP stuff from the classic line, the models that got me started playing 40k about 20 years ago. Been sorting through them and working out base replacements and plans for the work to restore all this crazy stuff.

I had a go with the new contrast paints today.

I'm not 100% certain about them really. For all the hype, they just sort of seem like a thicker wash.

This is their Gryph-Hound Orange, over a Halfords Grey Plastic Primer.

A single coat, no watering. Or medium.

Also, yikes, they're expensive.

Went to tournament. Best result evah in 20 years with 40 points after 2 rounds. Then finnish tournament ranking #1 came with his seriously toned down eldars that my poor necrons couldn't deal at all. I was outranged so bad that even advancing nephrek immortals couldn't reach anything for first round and anything that's seen got vaporized by piles of S5-S6 fire that is basically just what doctor orders against necrons(and lots of other stuff as well). I had basically no way to survive open, outside LOS opponent could just sit on objectives and get 20-0 and if I tried to break cover I got shot to pieces. Trust ranking #1 to figure out way to make super good eldar list with no alaitoc, only few saim hann units(rest being mixed detachment) and no psykers whatsoever or even spamming single unit slot(only 1 fire prism etc).

After that assembled 6 destroyers ready for priming and dug up few khorne daemons who will be the guinea pigs for contrast paint.
