The Wolves Progress

Been a little bit since I’ve posted because I’ve been struggling to get anything approaching a half decent photo because it always seems to be dark. Thankfully the mornings are getting light enough that I can take a few snaps before I go to work.

I’m changing jobs the end of the month which is going to need me to get up an hour earlier than I currently do, so I’m trying to get up earlier in an effort to ease me into what will become my new routine. This has meant that I’m getting in at least quarter an hour’s worth of painting before I go to work – definitely needed as I’m meant to have the majority of a 1,000 point army painted by the end of the month! One other thing that has helped is that I’ve managed to get a decent length of wood has meant I’ve managed to extend my desk space by over 100%.

Ever Growing Pack

20130830-161842.jpgAlthough I still have my drop pod to glue together, on Wednesday my other half wanted some company whilst she did some bits on the PC so I did a bit of airbrushing.  I have now managed to base colour another block of Space Wolves, including the remaining 7 Blood Claws of the large pack I’ve been doing.  I’ve got a highlight layer to apply to a the Grey Hunters but this is now over 50% of my actual troops with colour on them 🙂  I’m actually getting to the point where I need to start painting Rhino’s soon.

I have annoyingly noticed that 3 of the 4 Long Fangs I’ve got assembled actually need some quite major filling and work on their backpacks (and in the case of one missile launcher a fur pelt sculpted), so I can’t get them base coated yet.  With luck I’ll find a bit of enthusiasm to sort them out – possibly assembling the two heavy bolters at the same time.
