Well hello there. Before we start Id just like to say what an awesome collection of painters you have here. I will try my best to keep up with you or at least not embarrass you all.
I recently decided that a year was long enough for my Dark Eldar to sit in their boxes , and promptly built half of a 2000 point cache I had from when they were released.
To spur me on I joined one of those motivational blogs on Warseer in a vain attempt at actually doing something. Then I discovered this site and the wealth of ideas to stea..... I mean inspiration here.
So 200 points a month is the goal and as I joined late into the first month I cheated and painted Lelith and a sybarite.
I started out with the usual paint test. Id already decided on classic Purple so I tried liche and hormagaunt varieties. I wasnt impressed with either tbh but I layered on 3 coats of leviathan purple wash over the hormagaunt version to get a colour I liked.
the right one.
I then thought it all looked a bit dull so I tried a light coloured undersuit. I wasnt even aware they had an undersuit tll I started painting them which was a nice surprise.
It was looking better but I thought bugger it let make it white.
Then I got all serious and went for Lelith.
Yeah Im out of practice in all aspects of the hobby. Including picture taking it seems, but its a learning curve and tbh I wouldnt be fielding her too often so I dont mind making miskes on her if it improves my archon later. I also have to use a magnifying light now to paint as Im all old and falling apart. The downside of this is I still move things towards me to get a closer look when under the light I should move them away to get a better magnification. Its all ass backwards and quite confusing. The upside is when Im fixing mistakes Im super critical then when I look at them without the light it all looks so much less awful.
The lack of finished bases is because Im trying to decide which resin ones to buy. More on that after these.
They are both about an hour away each from being finished as far as Im concerned. Few bits here and there that need tidied and theyre done.
Well I was gonna post links to the bases but Im not allowed yet. So soon maybe.
