Thank you, all!

MegaDave, they have worked well so far. I picked up another couple colors along with the Sister at Warhammer Day. May try to do her using mostly Contrast, too.

And just like that, the lower half of the Knight was done:



Thank you for looking!

Looks like you went for the same nid contrast colours as I did. I think that dark blue one works really well - it creates some nice edge highlight effects and is dark enough to mask any pooling of the paint. I have found that it rubs off the model fairly quickly though, I used the model in a game over the weekend and the carapace points have already started to come off. Definitely needs a good varnish, more so than normal paints

Love the knight so far, flames and skulls look great. Can't wait to see it finished

Thank you, he's a hunka hunka burning love.

Cam, that's some serious praise. I am humbled.

Yup, Maharg. Your bug sold me on those two colors, for sure. I hit my models with a coat of gloss and two light coats of dullcote. I wonder if it will be enough to protect metal models.

Really cool work!

Thank you! I hope it all works out in the end.

Finished up the hoo-mans for Dreadball. Except for the coach. And the cheerleaders. The players are done. They were fun. And didn't really take a ton of time.







While I was painting the male Guard, my daughter came over and said, "he looks like Baymax." Coincidently, I had a Guard that was going to waste since I had gone for a gender-mix on my team. A little prep, which involved cleaning the mold lines the previous owner left, and a lick of Contrast, and he was done in no time.







Not winning any awards, but it is another mini done, a little bit of fun, and it went fast.

And to wrap up, the Terminator for Space Hulk, painted primarily with Contrast paints. Worked ok. Could have gone lighter in some areas. Can't really keep working these paints. Need to get them down and move on.







I figure they will do. And they are done. Again for not a lot of time invested compared to what it would have taken using a different method. Have 4 more 'Stealers prepped. Turtles and a coach on deck. More Knight. Eldar. Plenty to do.

Thanks for looking!

Liking the colour choices for your team. That Baymax take you did on one really does look the part, good job. Really digging how the green contrasts with the hazard striping on the termie.

Nice work on the dreadball team, they look really nice.

That genestealer still looks great, but it looks like the contrasts don’t work quite as well on flat surfaces to me. That said your (homebrew?) chapter colours work well together and the hazard stripes look great!

youwashock,

Was the Genestealer done with contrast paint?

Cheers,

Primarily, yes, Captain. The blue and the pink are Contrast. Single coat over a semi-zenithal prime job. Then the large claws, toes and eyes and tongue are regular paint. Also a Nuln wash in the mouth and eye sockets.

Thanks for the comments, guys.

I agree, gobert. The next Terminator I need to be careful about how the Contrast goes on the smoother areas.

I agree with the others that the genestealer with the contrast paints turned out awesome, especially for using only a single contrast coat! That’s an example that clearly lived up to the hype. Keep it up.

I've been struggling with large flat areas with contrast too, though I think it has given a nice aging effect on the terminator body. Shoulder pads less so.
Hazard stripes on the terminator are well done

Thank you, guys.

Nothing has been done since my last post. At the beginning of July I developed what has since been diagnosed as degenerative disc disease. I have a compressed disc which may or may not be leaking fluid causing what one doctor referred to as "considerable inflammation." My left leg has been traded in for a block of wood filled wirh hot needles. Sitting for prolonged periods isn't in the cards. So I can't paint. Spending a lot of time laying down and going to physical therapy. I hope to give painting a try soon. Maybe this week. The sooner the better, as far as I am concerned.

Ooh, I like that termie. Some Mantis Warriors vibes in it, the stripes succeeded very well.

Ouch! I was diagnosed with that a few years back, but nothing that bad. Good luck, I’ll keep you in the prayers.

Oh man, that sounds most unpleasant. Hope you're on the mend shortly, I enjoy keeping up with your painting log, it's always an interesting mix of cool stuff.

That sounds terrible, I assume that you are off work as well? It must be so frustrating to be in pain and unable to release a bit of that tension by hobbying.

Thinking of you YWS, and hope that the therapy brings some relief. Keep us updated as to your progress please Sir.

That sucks! Doubly so that you still have to go to work in pain! I hope the meds and physio help you mend fast. Try to keep up the physio, I let mine slip and regret it

Thank you, Cam, Maharg, Fifty, Ezki, gobert, and Captain, I appreciate the well-wishes.

In health news, I am showing improvement. Comparatively speaking, much improvement. Not perfect (at all), but good enough to sit and paint for a bit, which is a game changer. Just need to finish bases and there will be pics. Nothing major, but I used the downtime to go through some older nonsense projects and the unpainted masses and so I have wrapped up a few, redefined others, and s-canned a couple more. The catharsis is welcome, and it makes room for new nonsense projects. Since I couldn't paint or build, I figured it would be a good idea to buy a bunch of Wrath of Kings not-wolfen so I could do...something. Not sure what beyond painting at this point. I can put them on the shelf next to all the unpainted real wolfen.

Anyway, thanks again, guys. I am shakily back in the saddle, and hope to have something new to share in the next few days.
