A Special Project

I was surfing Thingiverse and found plans for a Bolt Pistol that is sort of a cross between the older styles and the newer Primaris style.  Sold!  My printer has been running non stop for a couple of days now to print all the pieces.  They all sort of dovetail together.  It's a really smart design.  The guy who runs designed the thing.  He's amazing.  Buy his stuff!

I think it's going to take me awhile to work on this thing.  I ordered some airbrush paints, which I think will help a lot, but they're currently on back order.  I'd order from somewhere else, but I got an amazing discount.

Some Infinity Models

My buddy plays a lot of Infinity and asked me to paint up some more models for him.  This is a pretty quick and dirty color scheme intended to more or less replicate the official scheme.  I think it's a pretty good fit.  In any case, my buddy was pretty excited, so I guess I did a good job!  haha

Airbrush Class

I bought myself a Badger 105 airbrush and took a class offered by CK Studios.  Best decision I've made in a while.  I'm not going to go into detail on what I learned, but I will say that if you're interested, look up CK Studios and give them a chance.

Transitions, transitions, transitions!!!

This last shot is what roughly 20 years of progress looks like.  I haven't been painting the whole time, or I'd probably be a lot better by now, but 20 years ago my best move was pretty much to stay in the lines.  Huzzah!

Painted Necron Flayers

Totally happy with how these turned out.  I used an airbrush to do the skin.  Bugman's Glow followed by Flayed One Flesh.  The airbrush gives me tons of transition.  I then sprayed a tint of Reikland Fleshshade over the whole thing before going to town on the details.  Again, really happy with how they turned out.

I was a little concerned that the skin would make them look weird compared to the rest of the army, but I think there are enough common points to tie them in.  Here's a quick shot with a few other models from my team.

A Simple Head Swap

Those Grimghast Reapers worked out pretty well.  A simple head swap using Immortal heads and I have what I think will be pretty solid Flayers.  The plan is to paint them to look like they're covered in layers of bloody skin with blood effects on the scythe blades.  The stripe down the forehead will be the blue to tie into the rest of my army.
