necrons again

But this time I think is the last time for a while. Necron lord that I consider finished since I painted his base ^_^

orb... I didn't know what to do with the damn thing. No ideas came to me whatsoever, I'm blank so I did the first thing that came to mind, paint it white then apply green wash. Easy and fast.
I added more highlights so that the detail could be seen everywhere. There isn't much detail to talk about but now it's visible. Being all dark, while cool, obscures everything. I think it ended up being as dark but detailed as I could get it to.
Also, did the bases for the last 4 necrons. 500 points worth of necrons with everything painted. I feel closure. I can continue with the tau with no black-primed necrons staring at me :P

hope you guys like them :D

necron day


Ok, so my plans changed a bit, I think I might be the most undecided person in the country :P. Necron Lord, a friend of mine tried to work on it, I didn't like it too much. I think the lord should be the centerpiece of the 500 pt army so I wanted to make him a bit special. I figured since he is wearing a cloak to make him as dark as possible. Darker than the normal warriors. This guy is supposed to be tough and has been phased out few times (:P) So.. I painted over my friend's work with chaos black, painted the whole figure black. Then started to add bits of boltgun metal here and there. Still wanting him to remain very dark.
But what is too dark?

Also, today before necron lord I finished painting the last 3 necron warriors. Only thing missing is the bases. Here is the first 10

fear the necrons! :P

tau

well, today was a productive day. After the green fever subsided; it gave me a new outlook on how to paint. Painting that ork was a lot of fun and was very fast. I decided to give sergeant tau a go and managed to "finish" him in the course of the day. There were many things to do but I found little bits of time here and there. I think there is a little bit more to be done with the face as now I think it looks kind of meh.


The guns perhaps were the things that I enjoy the most from the tau. They are just fantastic.


Another shot of the guns.

Also, I managed to squeeze some time to paint one necron warrior! haha for a second I didn't think I could do it.

Ok back to painting :)

(edit)


One tau fire warrior managed to sneak in! 3 models in one day... I'm on a row. I hope this trend continues :)

a certain shade of green

My plans were to paint at least a couple of colors to 4 tau fire warriors tonight. Then a little black unpainted ork crossed my path and I didn't feel too yellow but instead green. After painting a bit of this little ork I remembered that yellow is these guys theme. More yellow!!!

It's a bit late and even though I intended to finish him he will have to wait.



Also I feel out of place with everybody and their waaaagh fever, I wanted to "fit in" :P



Since I didn't know how to paint orks I first downloaded a couple of pdf from games-workshop and tried to mimic their technique only faster and sloppier. :)

more tau

Today is a yellow kind of day. The bottle says "brown" but to my eyes that stuff is yellow. This is the stuff I plan to finish in the near future, it's going a bit slow for the moment but it will pick up this week (I hope).

The weapons on the battlesuits are not final, I just put them there to see how they look (awesome) I think the theme on this army is going to be drones, lots of them. One thing that bothers me though (not that much) is that I haven't seen the bits to make them into shield drones. Haven't been looking too hard though, I'll find them someday, or just scream to the skies with one hand raised "NOOOOOOUUUUUU".

Also: a close up of three fire warriors which are "semi-finished"


I just love the tau, makes me wonder why I didn't buy these guys first. :P

Painting faster

Sucks that usually I paint something in x amount of time, then admire it for 2x amount of time. Not so much admiring it, but looking for something to fix or something to learn. If this wasn't the case I might have finished 3 times what I have. Maybe, I don't know. Still, if that was the case then I could/would buy this (for my still in the box ig army).

oh so pretty
