Quick one to break the Monday morning blues.
I managed to get all the bone sections finished on the remaining Dire Avengers last night, would have made more progress over the weekend but Saturday night I wasn't feeling too good (light sensitivity and my eyes) so didn't get anything done.
Sunday night I made a bit of headway before bed and got the 10 remaining Dire Avengers bone sections completed.
|BONE! GLORIOUS BONE!|
Now, I'm currently trying to work out whether it would be faster to reset the black areas now, then paint all the gem stones or I should leave resetting the black sections until last.
It's a big step in progress though since the bone areas are the most numerous, largest surfaces to paint using this scheme. Hopefully now I can plough on with the rest of it, maybe get the lot of them done in a single evening and onto the final details.
There's a few helmet-less models I need to have a look at, which will increase paint time and also try and incorporate squad markings into the Dire Avengers. I was thinking of doing...
- Painting the gem stones on each squad different to mark them out (1 Green, 1 Red, 1 Blue)
- Painting the Dire Avenger helmet mohawks a different colour for each squad.
To give you an idea of the scheme I'm going for, I've used this as a basis:

Anyway, that's enough for the time being. I've made a dent in the list for this month but it's not looking promising to get finished.
Probably won't be any progress tonight either if I go out and roll some dice... so fingers crossed I can plough on and get at least a chunk of this done before October ends!
