Today I started my day with reading the new White Dwarf. Yes, I know that most people I talk to do not like the White Dwarf very much but I have to say that after they redid it and released to iPads then it really has improved. I very much like how I can look at many of the models and be able to zoom in and rotate them. That's by far the best part!Anyways, I was looking through the new range of High Elves, quite impressed with some of the releases - especially the phoenixes. Those are the kind of models that I'd buy just to assemble and paint, even though I don't play the army itself. Only thing that was a let down with the release was the lack of troops...cause really those look horrible. I hope they redo them in a second wave!
Looking through the magazine ignited quite the hobby spark. I just wanted to sit down and paint, Lots! So I picked up my poor unfinished Pink Horros and gave them their very last details and some bases:
Ofc I now also realize that I forgot to give them neat looking eyes. But I'm gonna say that they are done anyways! ;) I'll fix that when I get back home =)
At the same time I tried out a new paintscheme for my Plaguebearers. I wanted to see if I could do them in just washes, like I did the herald, cause it would be fun with a unit that looks a little different from the ones I already have. So when I had done my first one I thought: yeah, this looks good! Hence I continued to paint all of them like that:
The first one is just to give a better view of the skintone cause it wasn't really showing on the groupshot. I must say I'm quite pleased with the result and now I have only to make their weapons, eyes and other tiny details and then they'll be all done. Really quick! Think it took me, including the time I had to wait for them to dry, like 2 hours. Good speed paint result ^^
So all in all, the time I spent at home with all my paints = a really productive day! Awesome! =)
Also here's the videolog I did the other day:
Hope you have a great evening!!
