The painting table is never empty. A situation I’m sure many a wargamer is familiar with.
In my case, my table runneth over with models that need paint. I thought I’d share some of the projects I have going on and talk a little about where they’re heading, how they’re going, etc. I never seem to stay on one project or model long, as I tend to shuffle between many at a time. It prolongs the insanity, but at least I change up so often I don’t get bored!
Let’s start with the big mac daddy at the moment….the Menoth Battle Engine: The Vessel of Judgement!
I’m really jumping around in topics on this blarg aren’t I?
That pretty much echoes real life as I keep jumping around different models and armies in my painting. But it’s high time this Stormwall took center stage as it is a commission. Thankfully the owner is away at college at the moment, so he’s not hurting to get it back, which is great because painting a colossal has been a bigger undertaking than I first imagined.
The story behind this paint job is actually pretty cool. The player is painting up his jacks in the colors of the Power Rangers, so I suggested that his Stormwall should be Megazord. It was an idea that was too cool to pass up so here I am making it happen. Below is the pic I’m using as a reference.
The cool thing about it is that I actually get to flex my airbrushing muscle on this guy as my jet black Menoth didn’t really need it. By my estimates this guy is about 30% done. He still needs a few basecoats here and there and I haven’t even touched the arms yet…
