|The good, the bad and the ugly?|
With the end result out of the way lets see where I started off.
|I (almost) never take old paint jobs off my models without apprehension.|
|I really wanted to convert this guy using Milliput way, unfortunately no Milliput was available back in the day (now get off my lawn!).|
|Not the worst paint job in the world, but I was quite sure I could do a lot better. I briefly considered upgrading the model with washes, but back in the day no one told me to thin my paints so a lot of detail was lost.|
|You won't believe what happened to me on my way to work today...someone chopped off my arm and drilled a hole in the bleeding stump!|
|Where would I be without a bits box? Nowhere, that's where...|
|Properly applying transfers is an important art to learn, promptly weathering them in a suitably destructive fashion is almost as important.|
|Always paint shields separately. Also always paint the back of the shield with some light stripes. No matter how awful your striping, someone will lean over and be impressed by the fact that you've painted wood grain.|
|Hello, never mind the screaming imp on my armor, I'm here to talk about our lord and savior Slaanesh.|
|For some reason I had a hell of lot of trouble painting the plume on his helmet without making it look like a paint smear.|
|I suspect someone rolled 'spawn' on the gift table.|
All in all not a bad triplet of refreshed models I think.
