I'm going to throw this out here right now for anyone who even thinks of painting a Wraithknight. This is very important and will save you hours of headache later. Paint the bloody thing in sub-assemblies, it's a miserable experience trying to work around all the parts and getting a brush into the nooks and crannies without mucking up what you've already finished. Ok rant over.

Little bit of an update on the WK front. The grey sub-structure is finished and I've started the orange armor panels. Really not much else to say really. Will be putting in more hours tomorrow, we'll see how far we get then.

Looks great man! Turns out your so called glacial painting speed isn't so glacial after all

I'm with you on the sub-assemblies front. Learning that lesson with a Raider at the moment :S

Still a lot slower than I'd like to be but progress is progress. Yeah for raiders I build the main body, the sail is another piece and the crew is another. I magnetize the weapons so those are painted separately too I suppose.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Took yesterday off from painting as my GF was in town and we decided to host a small party at my place. As of this morning the bottles have been recycled, the dishes washed, the counters wiped and prepped for use and the painting station has been set up again. Painting shall recommence after a break this afternoon and a trip to the gym.

Small update again. Got the orange base down on the model. Now to the actual orange colour he's going to be... that's for tomorrow though.

Looking good so far mate. I totally understand why your saying about wishing you'd done sub assemblies, it looks like a rather cumbersome model to work with.

Thank you all for the comments, they're greatly appreciated.

SoaJ, I'll be painting the gemstones in purple as I've done for the rest of my craftworld forces. I'll be attempting some new techniques to make them really pop as while my old method of painting gems was "ok" I'd love to improve upon it.

Youwashock, Thank you kind sir, and if I'm not mistaken you're a first time poster, welcome to the thread and thank you very much for commenting! You totally should paint your WK too, it's annoying to work around a pre-built one but once you get past the base colours and it starts to take shape it really is quite rewarding to see it come together.

And disaster strikes... So I was going to keep progressing on the WK when I open up my pot of Troll Slayer Orange to find that it was completely dried up, utterly unsalvageable. Being that this is my primary layer colour for the majority of the model I'm more than a bit out of sorts, especially since the nearest GW I can get one from is 200KM away. I called up my GF (who actually lives a short 15 mins drive away) and asked if she could get me a pot and bring it down on her next visit next weekend and she said sure. She grabbed two of the three paints I needed and what's the one paint they were sold out of? Troll. Slayer. Orange. Ok, enough ranting, on to plan B for now.

I've started work on the model I'll be entering into the Forge World category at the end of this month so time is not completely wasted right now. I'll also build and start painting my model for the Dakka painting challenge as well.

Bugger :S sod's law that's the paint they don't have.

What's the availability of next-day shipping like where you are? Could be an option

Also, is that Irrilyth? Awesome!

No next day shipping here, I live in a small town so services like that aren't offered. GW is usually not too bad at shipping in a timely fashion but I really just need one 5$ pot of paint and I don't want to pay the shipping cost for that. Free shipping from GW is 80$ but I have neither the desire for that much stuff (my shelf of shame is piled too high) nor the funds. I'll have to try and find other ways of getting it here fast enough.

Oh by the way it's not Iryllyth, that would be awesome but sadly I don't have him. This is just a random Shadow spectre from FW that I ordered about 2 years ago and still hadn't managed to assemble and paint them. Him and his 4 squadmates are all the FW I have left at the moment after making my wraithseer.

Ah bummer :S I forget that GW's distribution system outside of the UK is pretty pants.

Shadow Spectres are really cool can't wait to see what you do with them

Oh, and I prefer 'Primered Legion' to 'Shelf of Shame' less depressing that way!

Progress has been quite slow lately as I'm pretty put out of sorts without the colours I need but I did manage to get some more paint on the shadow Spectre. I hope tomorrow is a more productive day for me, Resident Evil 7 is done now so I can't use that as an excuse not to paint anymore.

Looking good dude it's a bummer when you're stopped mid-flow, but I do find that's sometimes when I end up being forced to paint something different that's been languishing low-down on the list, so your Shadow Spectre is definitely a silver lining

I'm actually getting pretty happy with how this guy is turning out which is helping my enthusiasm again. He's also a model I need to paint for this month's competition anyways so it's time well spent. Will update his progress tonight with a pic, for now I'm just plugging away at him.

He is looking quite nice, and I too enjoyed RE7 greatly too!

I've always been a fan of colored shading on whites, and you did a good job on it.

I can't wait to see the talos painted too!

Thanks gummy, yeah RE7 was quite enjoyable, much better than 5 and 6 but I'm not sure if I liked it more than 4. Maybe if it was longer, 4 felt like it spanned such a big story and had much more play time. Leon also seemed to have way more personality than this wet paper sack Ethan is. Overall though RE7 is a huge step in the right direction for the series.

On to painting stuff, that pic is so messy I cringe to look at it, I went over with my second pass and I think it looks a lot nicer now. I'll be adding some detail colours to this one and then I think we'll finally see what it's intended to be come within sight. As for my talos/cronos kit this one will be a Cronos since I've already got a Talos. I'm really excited to do this one because I'm really going to push the envelope with my painting with what I got planned on it. I hope it turns out nice and that you guys will like it.

The shadow Spectre is coming along pretty fast in my opinion, in fact he's almost done barring that blasted orange I'm missing. Here is the progress pic as of this evening.

Dude that's looking really cool pale desaturated armour with a riot of colour on the cloth. Right up my street

Looking forward to your Cronos saw the pic on the painting contest and thought i was looking forward to what you came up with

Thank you EDC and Ynneadwraith. The photo and lighting killed a lot of the colour variation on his armour (it's super hard to photograph white and near-white well) but I actually have a bit of light blue shading coming up from the bottom of his armour plates, as a spectre I'm trying to give him a bit of a ghostly appearance that steps away from good clean armour. Hopefully I can showcase this better in the photo booth when he's finished. The orange and purple are there to tie him in to the rest of my craftworld force, the goal is to paint all my aspect warriors in their traditional colours but sneak in some orange and purple to link them to my forces.

In other news my GF was able to pick up a pot of Troll Slayer orange that I needed and will be heading down my way for a visit tonight! Looks like I'll be able to get right back into it in time as the spectre is also at a stage where he needs that orange. I'll build the Cronos today and get started on him soon, she's bringing me the paint I need to achieve the effect I desire on him as well.
