So far I’ve managed to stick to my resolution and in spite of near constant temptation I’ve resisted it at every turn. As a result I’ve been able to get a few more bits done, first up are another three Shia Khan models from the Ion Age range. Once again I’ve been quite impressed with how they look once painted since, to my eye at any rate, the can look a bit soft in their raw state.
So these chaps can join my 15mm alternative 40k collection, Grim-Fabulous as I like to refer to it. I’m quite liking the more desert/post apocalypse coloured bases so I’m in the process of repainting the rest of the collection, it seems to make the figures stand out a bit more.
Also finished are four more stands of tiny tanks.
Aren’t they absurdly adorable? I’m continuing to really enjoy painting these miniatures and am getting a real buzz out of being able to get elements finished in reasonable time even at my glacial pace! I switched to using slightly thinned Baharroth Blue (?!?!?) edge paint from Citadel to do the edge highlights on the anti-tank tanks, does the trick nicely and is so much simpler than mixing a highlight.
I think that when I do give in to buying some more models (after careful budgeting of course) it’ll definitely be more of the Vanguard Dominion stuff, I think these little chaps will look wonderful in the pinks and golds of the Emperor’s Children.
Thanks for looking and hopefully more soon.
