This weekend I spent quite a bit of time painting up the Chaos Lord miniature from the Dark Vengeance 40k boxed set. This miniature is the first for quite a while that has actually “inspired” me to do some proper painting using a brush rather than an airbrush and fancy pigments.
For those modellers who have been living in a cave for the past six months, in March this year, Games Workshop withdrew their whole range of paints and replaced it with a range that consists of 145 completely different colours using a different formula paint. A lot of people slated Games Workshop for daring to remove colours such as Skull White and Bleached Bone.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I had ordered 13 paints from Wayland on Monday. That post was made on Wednesday and I had a bit of a moan that they’d not been dispatched. I’ve been checking fairly regularly to see when they were likely to be dispatched as I really wanted them so that I could do some painting this weekend, well about twenty minutes ago (14:50) I looked and the status of my order has gone from “Processing” to “Awaiting Stock”…
As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m itching to do some ‘traditional’ painting – i.e. using a brush and not airbrush and weathering techniques. To this end I have in my possession one of the lovely plastic Chaos Lord models from the Dark Vengeance boxed set. I picked this up for the bargain price of a fiver (that’s £5). The model is a lovely piece of work and despite the amount of detail is only five pieces – backpack, cloak & shoulders, body and two arms.
In principal it’s a fairly simple paint job, made more straightforward by the host of reference pictures.
