I know I’m missing some… might be in another box somewhere.. some wood elf units.
had a bit of a painting blst tonight..
didn’t take very long.
One character.. two figures
Faramir from LOTR
I chose to paint him pretty much as he looks in the movie, not he GW style with lost’s of gold to make him stand out from the other knights.
So I primed with VJ black, base dry brushed GW boltgun metal, light dry brushed with VJ bright silver. Painted in the black areas again.
Then I played with the wet pallet to get the face done… not very good but a good table top job. Picked out lips after muted tones from brown to flesh.
No washed whatsoever..ok a little on the hair. Loved mixing the red browns for his Ginger/brown hair. Didn’t get the eyes very good or the intended light complexion.
Heaps of pictures..
On with the show
Ok here is a very long artical about a very quick build.
I recorded how long I worked on these models.. not in one continuous activity but in snippets of work.
SO here goes
11:50 unpack blisters
The 5 tanks in blisters.. these are OOP now.
Cleaning up the parts of flash
11:37 clean tracks
After washing then drying them in the sun on a towel.
Priming the tracks.
Note I did not prime the hulls because the resin is dark grey and this saves time.
12:30 – 1:00
Base coating in dukelgelb with airbrush
Base coating the hulls
1:25 – 1:45
Gluing on the tracks to the hulls
1:25 – 1:30
Using a template mask to paint the green camouflage but only on the hull and not on the road wheels.
2:30 – 3:10 – painting tracks
7:00 – 8:30 — painting tracks and fluffing around with fix ups and barrel painting and magnets
9:00 am next morning — 9:45 detailing
Gluing on magnets for holding the barrels
Fitting barrels and fixing he weak set. The magnets were too small for he weight of the barrels
6:45pm — 7:00 pm green stuff barrels.
Still some stuff to go… but otherwise looks like it has taken 5hrs50 mins
That’s an average of 1 hour and ten minutes each.
