Works in progress
I've started on Lord Kranon from Dark Vengeance. I airbrushed all of the parts painted so far. I experimented a bit with masking with silly putty. It works well if you get it all off right away. If you don't, it will harden and damage the paint underneath. Lesson learned.
Using the techniques from my Rhino painting spree I started painting some terminators and a dreadnought (I mean helbrute). The models look pretty bland right now but hopefully they will look better as I add more colour.
I've started pinning most of my models into wood blocks for painting. It makes things much easier and is a lot more comfortable on my hands.
Here is a trollbloods model I am slowly working on. It has been pretty slow as I don't have my colours down for Warmachine and have been a bit apprehensive about painting it.
Finally, here is a paint tray I sacrificed to an airbrush experiment. I watched a short tutorial on painting a plasma effect and tried it out using white and a 15 year old pot of scorpion green. The effect came out alright for the five minutes it took me. I'm not sure if it has a place on many 40k models, but it would be really fun to paint on something really over the top. Any ideas? Anyone have any vehicles they want to look shocking?
