New Paint Station

Much to my surprise I actually managed a good few hours of painting last night at my better halfs parents house. Initially I set up on the dining room table and this was fine with the daylight however as it got darker the lighting just wasnt up to the task of painting minis. Thankfully there is a den that has much brighter lighting and after a quick move (4 separate runs with hands full) I was set up again. 

Initially I was working on the second coat of wash for the Shaltari, as you can see below I decided to stop after the second coat and do some work on the details. I toyed with the idea of doing 3 coats but thinking long term with Dropfleet and more Dropzone mini’s I really need to consider time vs looks. In this case time won. They detail work will still get 100% attention I just dont see the big change between 2 and 3 coats.


While the wash was drying on the Shaltari I finially managed to wash the Sigmarines. My distaste for block painting still hasnt gone away however for relative speed painting with decent tabletop resukts there is no better way to go. I chose the GW Sepia wash in the end iver the Fleshshade and I am happy with the outcome. Just the final basing needing to be sorted and a coat of Anti Shine and we are done:


The tail on the monster above is gold because until I washed it I didnt notice it wasnt fully armoured. So tonight all going well I will fix that slight oversight.

And finally I got my horde of UCM stuff out to start chipping away at. No detail pics of these guys as its all just blocking work again like the AoS stuff, expect them to be done sometime in 2019 🙃
