Another week, a few more models with paint and primer. I've had a strong desire to put brush to miniature but life has conspired against me. Puppy-sitting, working, and time spent on the Bellower have kept my hobby time to a minimum.
Something's got to give! Maybe I just need to stop reading and sleeping so much.
Had a few requests from the KUBBL folks to paint their models. I quickly turned down the initial requests, as I don't feel I am a particularly strong painter, but after a bit more badgering I agreed to do a test mini or two for one.. "client" ??
This Orc comes from the standard BB starter box and was very sloppily primed - leading to a loss of some fine detail and some craggy/cracked texture. My goals on this model were to present a tabletop quality miniature in under one hour total. Given that I am not a very fast painter I used a few techniques which I wouldn't settle for on my own BB minis but I think the results are acceptable (good?).
We'll see what the potential client thinks! I have another mini sitting here which I will try a slightly different skin technique on, and this Orc needs a few highlights and some minor detail work before I am willing to call it "good enough"
This one post a week stuff is for the birds! I promise to get some more stuff up here soon... including a brief overview of my first season with the Nurgland Germs.
