only 2 weeks?? This is madness! Spot on, man!
Wow they look great, Nord!
That is some seriously impressive work there my friend
Thanks all! I'm glad you like them, as I must admit I'm liking the feel in them more and more. I foresee more Nurgle in the near future, that's for sure!
I am seriously considering an airbrush based on these results, I can knock out Boyz pretty quick by hand, but this is a whole new level.
Understandable, however the airbrushing was only a small part of the models above. The following techniques was used in the creation of the above models:
- Technical paints
While I agree that some parts are A LOT faster with an airbrush, people have a tendency to believe that the overall work of a model is lessened by it. The way I see it, I use the same amount of time on a model, as I use the saved time on other areas. That being said, the shading and basecoating is infinitely easier!
Now, while I was having a few days off, I decided to finally paint that Aegis Defence Line that I had lying around from just before 7th was launched. It's been staring at me since, so I thought it was time to get it done.
Before I got started, it looked like this:
After I was done (15 minutes ago) it looks like this:
Nothing fancy, but it's good enough for me on the tabletop. The model, for those interested, can be gotten over at Wargamma, where they have Aegis Defence Line for a few other races than the standard and boring Imperial one.
Now to go and break down my kitchen - Yes, a new one is coming so there's a reason for the madness. I'm gonna hit that shit like I had STR D!
