Oooh shiny! So much for discipline!

26 09 2014

There I was, being disciplined in my painting, and along come the Orcs from the Lancer Miniatures Kickstarter.


So what happens? I stop painting what I was doing and start these.

Here is a view of my production line. This is pretty much what I do when I have a unit to paint.

Magnetising the bases with neodymium magnets
Cleaning the mold lines with my new Dremmel attachment
Basing with sand and PVA
Undercoating the shields. I’ve been a bit lazy and used an old can of yellow primer that I had lying around rather than using my airbrush.
Wood basecoat.
Metal painted. A test shield with wash and in the background you can see the beginnings of a movement tray.
Test shield with rust, wash and wood highlights.
