Anyways, I haven't gotten much done this week, but I'll show you what I have gotten done.
So a little more done on the White Lions. The first wash on the golds, the blacks, and the rest of the blues since last time (I think). I have since dropped the Dragon Princes from my list, so I'm not going to finish painting them at this time. Instead I added 2 chariots to my list, which I just finished the banner for the Lion Chariot last post, so there's some good news.
Sadly, this is all I've gotten done for my High Elves, but I have bombed around on a few other minis. Join me after the break to see what I've been up to...
Vampires! My interest in them has perked up a little again, so I thought I'd focus on a character model I really liked to see if I could get into them. So far so good. This is very much a work in progress, but it's actually a pretty good start, if I do say so myself.
And Tyranids! I went back to my old Tyranids, only with a whole new paint scheme. And that paint scheme is the old classic Space Hulk scheme. I've always been a fan of the purple and blue, and I'm thinknig now is the time to try it out. Now the Lictor below I had actually painted quite a while back. But I went back into him, lightened up the purples, and changed the claws from black to bone. I only did half of the model, for comparisons. This is the old, unaltered side:
And this is the touched-up side:
Then, to test out how hard it would be to re-paint my existing Tyranids, I tried painting over the existing scheme. It didn't turn out too bad actually. I haven't done much to it, but I haven't really lost any detail. Which is good, because I don't really want to strip these minis for the fourth time (yes, I've repainted them twice already...)
The worst part in all of this? I keep thinking about my old Orcs. Will I never learn?
