Finally!!!So glad to have completed work on this model! I've spent a ridiculous amount of time working on this one. Easily the most time I've ever spent on any one painting project. I don't think I even want to try and estimate how many hours. It's finished though and I am very happy with how it's turned out. It's certainly among my best work if not thee best. ...
Finally getting back to putting some more work into this guy and hopefully finishing within the next week or two. You can check out WIP part 1 here in case you missed it before.It's an amazing model and deserves my best efforts thus it's taking me awhile to get it finished. It can be pretty daunting painting a model this size and knowing that you'll have to put in quite a few hours to make it come out the other side how you envision it.Here's a shot of my work so far on the wings...
This model has been sitting around base coat painted only for well over a year. Finally getting around to finishing a proper paint job. For as much as this model makes it into my lists, it really should have a half way decent paint job. It's not my best but it'll do.
The miniatures for Shadows of Brimstone are pretty lackluster in regards to quality but I love playing with painted miniatures so these needed to get done. This was a super quick speed paint job that was finished from bare plastic to painted and based in under 3 hours. Shout out to my wife (my longtime brimstone posse member) for the assist with some of the base coating.
Been using this model a lot in my Twins list to great success. She's an expensive solo to include in a list at 8 pts but she sticks around all game, consistently contributing every turn. It's also a great looking model and I now try and squeeze her into a lot more lists then I used to. ...
Over the last couple months I've been putting these two on the table quite a bit and have been having a blast playing them. It's taken me way longer then it should have to get them painted. Glad to have them done but pretty disappointed in the quality of these miniatures. Privateer Press is just so hit and miss with their quality. These models are even among the relatively new for them but they are just nowhere near as good as say Fyanna 2. There is next to no detail in the face and detail in other places on the models is very soft instead of well defined.Anyways, they are finished and they...
Finally, wrapping up this project.... well mostly. I still have one more tank to finish actually. In Part 3 I had wrapped up all the building, casting, and assembling to complete 3 tanks. Without further ado, here is the finished product. As mentioned in previous posts all the weapons are magnetized so that they can be swapped out for assault cannons or heavy bolters...
In Part 2 we covered casting the weapons loadouts for the tanks. In this part everything comes together and I now have 3 scratch built razorbacks ready for paint. I have one more tank that I'm still working on. 90% of the components are already made. I just have to put it all together. I'm also working on putting together the original kit as well so once I'm finished I'll have 5 in total. So, without further ado here's what I have...
