Just had some Models thrown at me by a friend of mine who is new to 40k. Sweetly asking me to paint them for her.... As if I don't have enough to do
Seen as I haven't shown any of my work here I figured I'd start a Log and see what you guys think.
Please bear in mind that my weapons of choice are the Pen and Pencil NOT the Paintbrush so don't be expecting too much
A rather poorly painted Ghazghkull Thraka and a MegaNob are first up. Due to the fact that she got them from Ebay and I have only just decided to do this Log; I have already given them a bath of Dettol and have no pictures of what they were like. Suffice it to say they looked as if they had been dunked in a few pots of paint and left to dry.
Nastyness!! It turned a wrong shade of brown and the paint was all gooey
I'll show you what it did to the toothbrush I used to scrub them:
Not pretty! Looks like some one has been brushing their teeth with Tar
I was also forced to use one of my leather needles to pick at the detailed spots as toothpicks had no effect, they gave it up as a lost cause and broke.
This is the result of 12 hours in the Dettol and 3 hours or so of scrubbing and picking at them:
Its the best I could do given the circumstances. And now I am more Prune than Woman.
I made quite the mess and was berated for it
Needless to say I jumped to cleaning it up quick smart
As an intermediary I'll show you what I have painted so far. I was given Fifteen Nobz! And an AoBR Warboss.
I have done the Warboss and four and a half Nobz so far:
Instead of the skull that was already there I've put a severed BA head on the shoulder of the Warboss. Little room for conversion here i'm afraid as my friend wants them pretty much standard for now.
