Vallejo Metallic Liquid.

Vallejo Metallic Liquid.

Find these. Find these and buy them. They are beyond stunning. They are mind-blowingly good... I hope to have a few photos up tomorrow, but these paints make me want to play Necrons so I can paint with them...

If you're in New Zealand: Slave to Painting has the full range. They cannot ship them overseas though, because of hazardous shipping stuff. But Find Them!

Mark the day folks. Today is the day that GW lost me as a Space Marine collector... I mean ... Look at them?!

We interrupt this blog for a brief musical interlude...

This video is for those days when your desire to paint is low or nothing is working... Don't be afraid to smile when you watch it ^_^

Sunday Night Progress Report

So another week draws to a close... You know when you think there's only 52 of these in a year you realise how quickly they go... Anyway... Things done:

 - Finished a Squad: This is somewhat more momentous than most would leave to believe. I don't normally paint squads... I'm more of a one miniature kind of person... Don't ask me why... Anyway, this squad is the start of my Blood Angel army... It's going to be a long term process, and no doubt I'll get bored here and there and then move on to something else... Oh well ^_^

Burn everything!
 - Prepped Death Company: I don't know how but I've lost one of them... The bastard did a runner! ARGH! How do you lose a miniature between undercoating and your painting room?! Gah... I blame my cat... Little devil... ANYWAY! Prepped them and they're ready for painting.

 - Prepped Space Hulk Replacement Mini: Another of my long term plans is my replacement Space Hulk Inquisitor Warband... I'm on to my assault cannon replacement... I can't remember what it was called... but here's the image

Second from the left...
So, what's my motivation level like?

Actually, it's pretty good. I was happy to finally get around to finishing off the squad, but unlike what I normally do when I finish something (Which is take a long break), I kept going with the prep work. I'm not sure which I'll start with, might be both at the same time...

Blood Angel Assault Squad

Finally got around to finishing the marine off. Yay first half squad finished... I have no idea how long it'll take to paint me an army... But there ya go... ^_^

Might take a few individual shots of the marines... Most of them are floating around anyway. The only difference the keen of eye will notice is that I've rebased everything. I just clicked that Secret Weapon Miniatures no longer makes the straight edged bases I originally used... Doh... As I have no idea what will get discontinued next and these guys are going to be a longer term thing I figured I'd just make them myself... ^_^
