Workshop Wednesday: Journeyman League Entry 8

Celebrate! I’ve actually finished two models over the past week! Granted, the both of them were kinda done in the weeks before, but still! TWO! That deserves some celebration, shouldn’t it?

So here’s my first mini. A trollblood champion hero that’s hankering for paint for…. well, forever really. The primer coat was kinda crappy (you see how pockmarked and dusty it is), and so I tried to save it via the paintjob, making it all dirty and grungy, like it’s been rusted and corroded and messy for ages. I don’t know if it works very well, but it was a pretty good practice for the amount of weathering that I need to be doing for my Battlewagon (which will be soon TM).

And another mini (I seem to only be doing medium bases for some reason) is a Xerxis, this time for a mini exchange for the PP pressganger forums. This month’s exchange includes a LOT of PG staff members as well, so if I’m lucky I’ll be able to send to or receive from a PP Staffer. Pretty fun!

I didn’t get any colour schemes in my request, so I painted this up similar to how I was thinking of how I would paint my Skorne army (if I ever had one). This is a cataphract army in Crab colours. A force of giant tetsubo weilding armor dudes has been one of the major draws of a Skorne army (together with dinosaurs), but I have to admit the lamellar armor was a biiiitch to paint. And I still don’t know if I’m sold on the colour scheme. It was fun for one mini, but I don’t know if I’d like to paint a whole army like this.

Moving on, I’m glad that I’m not the only one hard at painting work! I think Zi Yi has actually got 35 points fully painted (or close to it now), so I’m looking forward to seeing some killer retribution action during Sporecon.

And here’s this week’s point tally! I’m further away from the bottom! WHOO!
