The problem is that i just opened my own hobby shop so unfortunatley i'm needing to prioritise, not letting the business collapse on itself within the first 2 months of opening instead of painting.

Good evening fellow monthly painters.

Here is October's entry:
2nd Venom for my Kabal
ImageUploadedByTapatalk1354317192.905242.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1354317205.146210.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1354317217.771905.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1354317231.537046.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1354317242.523689.jpg

I decided that I would attempt some freehand on this one considering this is my Succubus's personal Venom for her amazing combat takedowns.

My November entry was going to be 12 Reavers. Due to work sending me away at short notice I was unable to even attempt this one so my first RLC will be used.

Can't wait for December challenge, independent character for this one as loads of does to go to!

Good luck to all that still has to post their entries and well done to the ones that have completed. Some lovely stuff as ever.

I'm not sure yet if I want to slant my paint scheme towards a legion or not. I have a good deal of old chaos renegades that are in a dark tarnished bronze color scheme. I want to push the scheme a bit and use a lot of tarnish and verdigris covering the wings and fuselage. My goal with the tarnish and verdigris is to burnish up the leading edges of the wings, head, body, etc. to simultaneously show the friction and wear along with the age and corruption of the daemon engine.
Whew! In at the last minute!

So I carried the verdigris-and-wear theme all the way through. I think it worked out pretty well. I haven't yet decided if it's worth picking out the rivets or if that will break the look and feel.

I think the overall scheme works for the model. By comparison, when I looked at other examples people have posted online and I consider the amount of zig-zagging trim when really picked out ends up being too busy. There are a lot of sharp angles and competing planes on the model, when all of those planes and their trim are picked out it makes a busy model even busier.

I think this scheme unifies the model and benefits from the all the detail instead of being hampered by it.

Thoughts, comments, criticisms are all welcome.
Cheers!

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.
