Got a Little Captain in Him

I misplaced my camera for a bit but we're back. Not as much progress as I would have hoped in three weeks, but I've been working on some terrain for a new store in my area and also playing some Epic once a week too. Hopefully I'll have some pictures of the terrain soon. The gems and weapons are now finished up on the Firestorms. I also did the first highlight on the orange. Three more highlights and they'll be good for the clear coat queue.

I also started on this guy. The repositioning is set (striking his best Captain Morgan pose), I just need to go back and putty the joints I cut. The wings I'll put on after things are painted as it be too tight otherwise. Also, the weapons are magnetized using 1/16" diameter magnets.


Keeping the Skies Clear of You for Me

I was wondering why I was getting so much of a shadow on these as I was taking a picture. I realized afterwords that I only had one of my desk lamps on. Anyway, the Firestorms progress. The black is done, next week I hope to tackle the blue on the guns and maybe the gems. The recess lines are slightly less defined than the superheavies, so getting the highlights is slightly more difficult. That was compounded by the heat and lots fans that have been running in the local store where I paint this past week. The paint was drying on my brush before I got it to the model.


Tiny Tanks!

The Void Spinners had the last of their paint put down last night. I still need to get around to the gun barrel conversions, once they're all set painting those shouldn't take more than an hour or two. After that, they'll be in the varnish and decal queue with the rest of the super-heavies.

That means I'm on to the Falcon hulls, first up are the Firestorms. The engines on these are slightly more exposed so I might do an extra bit of highlight on them. Not sure yet, as I don't want to detract from the orange/blue/black. Thoughts?



I finally got around to posting some pictures from NEAT X. We had 18 people this year after some cancellations but there was still plenty of Epic-ness abound!
