Since I can't really update you with any progress on models at the moment, I thought I'd put up a few pictures of what I'm up to at the moment. All of these pictures are from last year's Latin camp, but I'll post some more recent pictures soon! And as usual, credit is given for the images in the resources section. To spread this out over more posts, this is part one, the normal stuff... excursions and parties will be in the next one!
I'm away at the moment doing some Latin, but I do have some posts lined up for you. So I've got a picture of one of my Dreadfleet boats, the Swordfysh. I haven't done any work on the model for a while, but I'm hoping that I'll get it done before too long. It's certainly an interesting model to paint, since there are lots of large flat areas and tiny details.
The other day I decided to do some work on the models from Dark Vengeance, since I've had them a while and hadn't made much of a start yet. I've got a few pictures of Company Master Balthasar, possibly my favourite model in the set. The armour is now basecoated, so hopefully I'll actually get on with painting him. Or I might be wrong...
Sadly no alpacas, but I did get my hands on some of the new apocalypse stuff released the other day. I also now have the Master of the Marches model, which I've started working on for Golden Demon (see the other blog for more). I still haven't decided exactly how I'm going to paint him, so I suppose that's got to be the first decision,,,
I'm afraid to say that I haven't painted much since last time. Instead, I've been thinking about what I might do about my Golden Demon entry, since I'm struggling to decide what chapter to paint him as. But I do have some pictures of Elrond to show you, I've now painted some more on the white areas. I've also been planning out how I'm going to paint the freehand on his robes, and I've settled with a design I like.
It's now about time to start work on my Golden Demon entry for this year, and I've decided to paint the new Master of the Marches. I like the model since it's in a stationary pose, which I generally prefer over more dynamic poses. I also just think he looks pretty cool as Space Marine captains go. As usual, picture credits in the resources section.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
