Cracked open my copy of BSF and finally built all the little blighters.

So a new plog for a new ploject... I mean project. Let's see if I finish this one

Progress log:
Ur Ghouls - done
Spindle drones - built
Guardsmen - built
Beastmen - PIP
CSM - built
MC Hammer - built
Negavolts - built

Eldar - built
Raus- built
Rein - built
Robot - built
Priest - built
Psycho - built
Trader - built
Kroot- built
Navigator - built

First up, the Ur-ghoul thingies as they are pretty much the simplest thing in the box. Simple grey base coat with some highlighting followed by one of various washes. Used Drakenhof, Biel Tan and Guilliman (I know it's a glaze rather than a shade). I tried Cassandora as well, but that really didn't work so I rinsed it off and did a second Drakenhof as that was my favourite of the other 3. Heh, there are still a couple of yellow smudges left that ill have to touch up.



Drakenhof


Biel Tan


Guilliman


I think another layer of Guilliman is needed, but the other 2 look ok as is and just need a touch of detailing on the claws and nostrils.

Ill be doing scenic bases for all if them, just waiting for my order coming from Green stuff World.

Anyway, C&C welcome and grateful for any advice you may have.

Gday mate - they look really good, especially for such a simple process. If I ever pick up orks, that’d be a great way to do their skin.

I haven’t actually seen the Guilliman glaze before - gives a really nice effect, a bit more contrast than the washes.

There are some sweet models in BSF, will be cool to see how you tackle them in the blog!

The Alien. The Other. The Inconceivable. The Eldritch Abomination is a type of creature defined by its disregard for the natural laws of the universe as we understand them. They are grotesque mockeries of reality beyond comprehension whose disturbing otherness cannot be encompassed in any mortal tongue.

Thanks Tzurk. The Gulliman blue one is a bit more contrast as I took that one all the way up to white as I thought the glaze would work better on that. Not sure if it was necessary, but hopefully the second coat will help seal it as a worthwhile scheme.

And so here is my secret weapon against grey plastic... a portable painting station. I finally realised that I could be using the dead time waiting for my kids to.get to.sleep for more productive purposes than mucking about on my phone. This should let me.get an easy extra hour in per day. I don't think I'll be able to.do much more than an hour before my back gives in, but it should help.progress.



Some more.pics.of.almost finished ur ghouls a bit later tonight.

The Ghoul brothers are done! Score 1 for the Flinty (except the bases, but they don't count or something).

W00t. Next up I need to clear my kill team scouts that are sitting there half done then I can move onto something else blackstoney... drones or beastmen... Not sure.

Very happy with the painting station though. The legs are nice and stable and usable on my bed and on the sofa, even if its not that comfy after a while.

Kill team scouts are done, so now back to the Fortress. Next up, beastman as I've entered them into this month's painting comp.

Proof shot



Progress shots from today. Almost done with the first set of base coats. Metals next and then on to shading and patterning of the fur. Going for a rag tag motley assembly of scavenged clothing and kit. Everything that is orange Brown will be a rusty thing.

Ah, the beastly men. They look good so far, and rust is always a bit of fun to paint, i think.
