I was trying to work out whether to use metallic or try balls up some NMM... I'm happy with my choice... ^_^

On things with wings...

So I have actually been painting... I mean, I've been painting without updating. Partly because of laziness... Partly because of the funny way Google blogs was working for awhile... Either way, stuff done... ^_^

So I've been spreading out to other things lately, and decided to start with some Imperial Stuff from X-Wing. I started with the shuttle and then decided to do some escorts...

Once this was done I decided to add more, so there could be more options to play with. That meant some TIE's... Four seemed like a good idea, and one needed to be an ace. 

 So that's left me with a pretty large squadron. I'm going to add a firespray in there somewhere ^_^

A lot of these were done very quickly with my airbrush, and I gotta say I would do things very differently if I did them again... Which I'm going to be... As I'm selling these ^_^

So what else have I been doing? Well... As much trouble as I have with GW some times I still have a VERY large pile of shame which needs painting... As such I decided to bust out the Whirlwind... It's obviously very WiP ^_^

You can do SO MUCH with an airbrush, but it is not hassle free; colour changes are a pain, as such it's often beneficial to do things in large batches... Of course I have trouble batch painting... but you do what you can...

Dark Elf Dragon WiP

Well it's been awhile, but I'm painting again. Since last time I've gotten a new degree, started a new job, been victim to a home invasion, been screwed over by the justice system, etc, etc...

Anyway, painting... Just a WiP shot of a Dark Elf Dragon. Hopefully I'll have more soon.

Airbrush stuff continued...

If you don't know and follow Tom Schadle, over at Tom Schadle Miniatures I highly suggest you start reading his blog and following his amazing work. He's won awards and paints professionally and all the other stuff that most of us aspire towards. Anyway, look at his stuff... ^_^

I borrowed (See 'blatantly stole') his colour scheme and technique for his Infinity terrain and used it to see if I could reproduce something that kinda looked the same... Good News! What I've produced doesn't suck!
Was disturbingly easy as well. I used exactly the same method as tom did in his post here. Worked like a dream, I'm sure things will get better with more practice... 

Space Barrier.
When a regular sandbag just isn't good enough...

That marine couldn't hide behind that if his life depended on it... Wait...

And I am done! This has been so much fun, and so very easy to do... The decals were amazing and look really nice on there. Enough talk. More model!

Everything looks better with Racing Stripes!

It's true! They really do look better ^_^

Red makes things go faster...
Not much left to do really ^_^

Battlestar Day Two...

It's so very hot where I live right now... I've been spending time reading in the sun rather than in the Sauna that is my painting room... But I did the 80% of the grays. There is a distinct possibility of going to light with this, so I've kept it quite muted... I still like the look of it though ^_^

Still lacking something... ^_^

Battlestar start position

My airbrushing skills are still lacking, so I purchased this for practice... If you're going to paint something, paint something cool... And the Battlestar Galactica is Daaaaaaaamn cool... I'm thinking for this one I'm going for height of its power Galactica rather than battle damaged Galactica or Museum prep Galactica...

The kit is from Moebius Models. It is really nicely detailed... and the Pegasus just came out, same scale, so I'll have to get that one soon enough as well ^_^

Insert Dramatic Music here
