As Templecon grows near, I’m attempting to accomplish a painting milestone for me. Finish a full unit + UA. I’ve yet to actually do it, so this is big for me. I already have the core unit done, back when I was fleshing out my Winterguard Themed force, way back when…
So, to accomplish the milestone of finishing the unit + UA, I’m only 4 models away, since I already have the UA done (except for freehand on the banner, which I probably won’t have time for) …
So, just four models right? But I want to field the full Deathstar, especially with Butcher1…
So, let’s add a set of Rocketeers and Joe, that’s only 8 models.
But, I conveniently have one extra WA and a spare leader and grunt for running two min units… (for Sorscha2 NQ Theme reasons, mostly).
Well, when you’re going to mix a potion, you always have time for a second one…
So, here I am with 11 models to paint in about a week. Time to use the airbrush. I was able to basecoat them in Greatcoat Grey first, then Sanguine base, then Khador Red. Unfortunately…
Yeah, the red kinda way covered the grey. Like… it’s bad…
So, out came the Amazon Prime membership, and after watching a movie, roughly 90 minutes later, I’ve reclaimed the coats in their proper color, and I’ve basecoated the straps and ammo pouches in brown.
Not too shabby, for 90 minutes worth of work. I wasn’t able to get much else done tonight – I’m trying to not stay up past midnight, and I’m trying to get plenty of sleep. I also prepped my Battlefoam bag for Templecon, taking out 90% of the unpainted stuff, and stuffing 35pts of painted Cygnar in.
I’ve also figured out a 50pt list that is a bit wonky, but actually used fully painted Khador:
The Butcher of Khardov * Conquest * Juggernaut * Spriggan * War dog Reinholdt, Gobber Speculator Battle Mechaniks (Leader and 5 Grunts Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist Winter Guard Infantry (Leader and 9 Grunts) * Winter Guard Infantry Officer & Standard * 3 Winter Guard Infantry Rocketeers Kovnik Jozef Grigorovich
Anyway, that’s the current state of the WGI Quest. Wish me luck?
Hey brother, good luck! I’m trying to finish a full unit of Mage Hunter Strike Force, one omnijack, one Banshee, and two custom case lids (one for minis, one for tokens) prior to leaving for TempleCon. I did something similar with my MHSF in that I’ve airbrushed the cloaks and some of the omnijack parts. As its my first time using an airbrush, its been quite the learning experience. I need to get with you and Ron sometime to have you school me in airbrush use.
Maybe I should write a blog post about it….. 😀
Maybe you should, ya slacker!
