After posting my last post earlier today I dusted off the brushes.
I found some of my minis that were at various stages and decided to enter 3 of them at the Richmond IPMS show at the end of February. This way I have a goal, deadline and another reason to attend.
I chose a Black Templar Sergeant, a female Battle Sister and a Tau fire warrior.
The Black Templar is 99% complete, just some touch ups left to do. It is one of the first minis that I took my time on and didn't rush through.
The battle sister is in the initial paint placing as I call it. The dark colors are placed first and then lighter colors and eventually highlighting. I believe she is from the Warhammer line. Nice miniature and will look great ! I have two more of these similiar warriors from the Mordheim line that I would like to paint in the same color theme.
The Tau Fire Warrior is planned to have a winter camouflage theme. I need to order some various greys to assist in finishing it. The gray pots I did have have dried out. Since their fates are sealed I decided to wash out the pots and keep for terrain or mix pots. Anyone ever do that ? I was thinking about creating a Tau detachment battling some Cadians on a winter planet of some type. That is just a thought right now.
The Old Dominion Open is February 2, 2010. It will be the first show that I enter anything. I am looking forward to it ....
Let me know what you think of the pictures. Any hints or suggestions ... let me know. I like the feedback.
Be safe ....
