@Briancj - I'm not going to lie, I was tempted

While I was at Salute, I picked up a KR case and foam for my Resident Evil 2 board game models. Yesterday I went through and plucked the foam - careful - so that the bigger models fit in. I still need to see what I can do with the twenty doors, but everything else fits in.

Spoiler:






I have no idea what was going on with yesterday's stream - I was pretty much talking to myself for the first hour, which is always worrying. Still, got a couple of bits painted in a single stream, and made some progress with other stuff.

WIP

Ryza-pattern ruins - I drybrushed the grey on the hatch and barricades with P3 Trollblood Highlight and P3 Sickly Skin. For the hatch, I then picked out the bolts and framework with VMA Gungrey. On the barricade with a door, the door got basecoated with Castellan Green.


Hedgehog Alchemist - Highlighted the fur with a Battlefield Brown/Steel Legion Drab mix, followed by straight Steel Legion Drab. Picked out the claws with Steel Legion Drab, before going over them with P3 Jack Bone. Picked out the eyes and nose with Coal Black. Highlighted the dress with a mix of Red 4 and Red 5 from Warcolours. Basecoated the stave with Battlefield Brown.

Completed

Item Crates (Resident Evil 2) - These were pretty straightforward - basecoat the panels (twice) with Castellan Green. Basecoat the frame with Gungrey. Pick out the hinges and locking bar with VMA Steel. Wash whole model with Nuln Oil. Add Typhus Corrosion around the bottom and wherever I was unhappy with the wash. Tidy up the base with Abaddon Black. Job done!

Goal Progress
2019 Progress: 112/365 models completed (11 games, 9 manufacturers, 4 units, day 101)

Today was a day where we started off a few new pieces, finished off some pieces (including one which has been kicking around for a few months) and contemplated how we're going to do some others. The stream was busy enough for me to feel like I was talking to people for the whole four hours, but not busy enough to be distracting, which is about ideal for me.

WIP

Ryza-pattern Ruins - Barricades - The main job today was settling on a colour for the "interior" walls. I've gone with Incubi Darkness for now, mainly as I can;t recall the last thing I used it on. I think I'll do this befor the grey on the two big ruins, as I really didn't want to get it on the grey. I also picked out the door ID panel with Warplock Bronze followed by Brass Scorpion.


VSF Gentleman - This chap, and his female partner, had the same steps done on them today. Their robotic canine companion went a bit further, as can be seen below. I basecoated the base initially with VGC Parasite Brown, before replacing that with Bugman's Glow after I used the texture paints on the dog's base. I also basecoated their guns with some spare VMA Gungrey I had out after doing something else.


Darkoath Chieftain - Thought I'd make a start on the next "hero" from Silver Tower, along with the two Skaven from the set. All three had their bases painted first (two coats of VGC Sombre Grey, a wash with Drakenhof Nightshade, and a drybrush with Sombre Grey) before I basecaoted the chieftain's blades with some spare VMA Steel, and did a basecoat of the skin with Midlund Flesh. That'll need a second coat, preferably before my next stream.

Regretfully, due to the time difference, it is very hard for me to watch your Stream.

@Briancj - No worries, dude. I'm fully aware that timezones are a PITA

@Captain Brown - I'm continuing the fight, sir!

Had a stream of two halves last night - the quiet bit for the first hour or two, followed by a raid for a boost for the second half.

WIP

Ryza-pattern Barricade - Added a second coat on the Incubi Darkness, followed by a Nuln Oil shade. Once that was dry, I shaded the concrete side of things with Agrax. I think I drybrushed this with Febrisian Grey, but I could be wrong with that.


Cook's Guild Terrain - Basecoated the wood with Battlefield Brown, then drybrushed up with Gun Corps Brown and Rucksack Tan. Not decided if I'm going with an Agrax or Coelia wash over it yet.


Darkoath Chieftain - Second coat of Midlund on the flesh, a wash with Riekland, and then picked out the skulls with Steel Legion Drab. Not as many skulls as I was expecting, admittedly.


Cat Huntress - Didn't get much done yet, as I need to decide the fur colour I'm going with. I basecoated the leather areas with Mournfang Brown, and mused a lot.

Completed

Cook's Guild Ball Marker (Guild Ball) - How often do you have to paint bread?


Ryza-pattern Barricade (Warhammer 40,000) - This ruin was a little further ahead of the other one. Definitely drybrushed this with Fenrisian Grey, followed by Pallid Wych Flesh. The darker bronze sections got a basecoat of Warplock, a wash with Agrax, and a touch of Nihilakh Oxide. The silver metals got some VMA Gungrey, and a shade of Nuln Oil. Once everything was dry, I added some Typhus Corrosion.

Last night was my first stream for a week, having missed Thursday and Sunday for my Easter break - got a reasonable amount done, but maybe not as much as I was hoping.

WIP

Darkoath Chieftain - Basecoated the bladed shoulderpad with Gungrey, before washing it with Nuln. Need to figure out remaining colours next.


Cook's Guild Terrain - Washed the wood with Coelia Greendhade, before beginning detail work. Most of the metal was Gungrey with a Nuln wash, other than the knife, which was VMA Steel. Carrots used VGC Parasite Brown with an Agrax wash, while the greenery was Caliban with Warpstone over the top. The slate cutting board was Incubi Darkness with a Nuln wash, which the meat was basecoated with Warcolours Red 5. Should finish this on Thursday night.

Completed

Ryza-pattern Barricade (Warhammer 40,000) - Drybrushed the Incubi side with Pallid Wych Flesh. Bronze areas were Warplock, Agrax, bits of Nihilakh. Silver bits were Gungrey with Nuln. Added Typhus Corrosion to taste.

2019 Progress: 118/365 models completed (11 games, 10 manufacturers, 4 units, day 113)

Dysartes,

Nice work on the Ryza-pattern Barricades.

Is that kit worth it? While one could make something similar it probably would not have the little details.

Cheers,

CB

@Captain Brown - Worth it is a tricky one. I like the barricades and the ruins, but I'm not entirely sure what the point of the hatch is. I guess if you had several of them, you could use them as objective markers? Looking at the GW store, the price for two sprues of ruins (so 2 hatches, 4 barricades and 4 ruins) isn't bad, especially as there is some flexibility in building the ruins. Word of advice, though? Paint the t-shaped ruins in pieces before slotting and gluing them together - some recesses are proving a pain to get into.

WIP

Cook's Guild Goal Marker - Shaded the Warplock Bronze with Agrax. Have gone abck this morning with a bit more to hit any areas which are still shiny. Some Nihilakh needs adding.


Hondo Ohnaka - Some of the basecoating is a bit rough. Using Warcolours Red 5, Citadel Fenrisian Grey and P3 Menoth White Highlight on the jumpsuit and undershirt, with Castellan Green on his helmet. Next job is neatening the basecoats up before moving to other areas.

Completed

Cadian Company Commander (Warhammer 40,000) - Considering I only glued the guy together on Wednesday night, having him finished by the end of Thursday's stream amuses me. Standard basing, same scheme for the uniform as the Conscripts, but with a red coat lining. Could maybe have done a better job there, but happy for a quick bit of work.

In previous versions of 40K, and possibly current, the hatches were used as part of stratagems. Sewer/underground deployment, escape hatch from a Bunker, etc.

They also make exceptional objective markers.

@MegaDave - Thanks dude. A little annoyed with myself that I didn't get the two big pieces finished in April, but I'll get to them eventually.

@Captain Brown - No worries, Captain.

@Briancj - Yeah, objective markers were what I was thinking. Adding them as hatches for scratchbuilt bunkers is another good shout.

Streamed yesterday, after missing a week through a combination of my brother's stag do, and needing to do housework before an inspection of my flat. A little low on energy/inspiration, I started on some of the doors for Resident Evil 2.

WIP

Hondo Ohnaka (Imperial Assault) - Went back over the grey and white sections of his clothing. Basecoated the skin with P3 Beast Hide. Basecoated boots, holster and belt with either P3 Umbral Umber or P3 Battlefield Brown. Basecoated gun with VMC German Grey. Basecoated the cap he wears under the helmet with GW Fenrisiam Grey.


Cook's Guild Goal Marker (Guild Ball) - Basecoated the stew (and logs) with P3 Umbral Umber, before picking out the carrots with VGC Parasite Brown.

Completed

3D Doors (Resident Evil 2) - undercoated to completed in a day.

WIP

Tallarn Officer - Worked on the under-robes, using some Cryx Bane Highlight. Need to decide on sash/cloak colours.


Cook's Guild Goal Marker - Got most of it finished off, just need to paint a turnip, I think.

Completed

3D Doors (Resident Evil 2) - yes, the one on the right was in the last shot. Different Shade on each door - L-R is Carroburg Crimson, Seraphim Sepia, Coelia Greenshade, Agrax Earthshade.

Dysartes,

Good luck over the next few months, as the warmth of summer enters the painting den and calls you outside to enjoy the sun's rays.

Cheers,

CB

PS: Forgot you were in the UK and might not see that much sun.

@Captain Brown - Aye, if this week is anything to go by, we're not going to have to worry about much sun...

WIP

Poxbringer - Undercoated this guy white this morning. The base got the usual work-up. I'm aiming for Sickly Pallor of Decay look on this guy, hence why he looks so white. The horns/claws were painted with Reikland Fleshshade, followed by two coats of Athonian Camoshade.


High Roller - I think this guy is meant to be a familiar, but I'm not sure. P3 Cygnar Blue Base for the body, Averland Sunset for the shoes (going for a Mickey mouse style for the arms/legs).

Completed

WIP


Nurglings (Warhammer 40,000) - I'm trying out a variety of skin tones on these Nurglings, to stop the bases looking as just one blob of green. As you can see, I'm also painting the segments of the Nurgling base individually, rather than trying to paint them while glued down and based.

@Captain - Thanks. The Sickly Pallor of Death scheme is one I think I want to experiment with more. Good job I have three units of Plaguebearers to paint at some point!

@Ezki - Cheers dude. The Nurglings were quite fun to paint - until I realised how cheap the unit is, points-wise

WIP


Nurglings - need to finish the bases off on these guys, which I'm doing today. Did get the assorted Nurgling skins, guts and other details polished off on stream, though, and glued the elements down to the base.

@Captain Brown - Thanks Captain. I've definitely had some fun with the little dudes.

Had some technical issues last night, which meant I had to call the stream early. I'm also missing Sunday's stream, as I'm helping to run a Magic: The Gathering event with the crew from one of my LGS. I'll get some store credit for doing so, which can go towards some of the IA packs I don't own yet.

WIP

Plaguebearers - Started on five Plaguebearers last night. The bases are the usual approach. The skin has had two coats of Athonian Camoshade, while the sword is painted with Warplock Bronze.


RE2 Doors - Yup, more doors. This time, I'm going with a dark red finish rather than green, using Warcolours Red 5.
