No paint today for the army, just gap filling, which can be fun in it's own way! Why gap filling instead of painting? Well, part of it was I wanted to do something different than painting since I'd spent three hours working on my Skaven Warlord, while the other half was these guys are on the table, and so close to being primed, but those gaps were downright annoying (aka: I'm planning on priming a bunch of the various minis on the table quite possibly next time, so they're all ready to go and I can start actually painting colours onto them!)
^So first up is 77501 Minotaur. Gaps were filled, and I tried to match his hairline, but didn't quite get the lines for the muscles to match up. Really hoping it isn't too obvious once paint goes in, but it's about forty two times better than that gigantic gap he had before.
^Next up is filling the gaps on 77464 Werewolf, where by sheer coincidence (because I was somewhat random with my tool, and just went with what "felt good" for trying to keep the hair flowing from head to body) a good amount of the lines matched up. Once again, I'm curious as to how it will look with paint, but I suspect it will be more believable than the previous minotaur. Gap around his tailbase will be taken care of next time.
Figure I should comment on greenstuff too... Funny how it's so much nicer to work with when you, uhm, coat your tools in Green Stuff World's sculpter's vaseline and get some of it on your fingers... Oh man, stickyness, what stickyness? It only sticks when I push it against something!
I haven't forgotten about him, it's just that I've mainly been trying to stick to just one dragon at a time on the table. Something about there only being so much room or such sillyness
It's incremental work, but work none the less.
^ Removed the armour plates on the two front legs, and then drilled holes for pinning and later assembly. The details under those plates are just too nice to conceal outright.
^Had what turned out to be a decent amount of mixed green stuff leftover after filling in some gaps on two minis for my FFHH army, and so I started filling in the gap on one wing. It's not quite there, and will take at least another session on his right wing for filling, and then another for details (that I'm still kind of working on, but I'm definitely feeling the idea of working a pair of gears per wing in there), while the left wing I'm hoping to have the fill in part be a single round, but that naturally depends on how much I wind up putting together in a batch next time
...He's going to continue to be a slower, side project for the time being, but given how much I enjoyed doing this and that with him this weekend I have a feeling he's going to muscle himself onto the table anyways, especially as a few more ideas start to flow into my mind as to how he's going to be a hybrid of mechanical and synthetic design.
Time to play with my new olive skin tones! I'll end up freehanding some tattoos on her eventually. For now she has eyes and a base coat. Smoothing some mold lines with resin was annoying.
Future photos will have to be thru Imgur; this lady is fully nude. I put a finger in front of her naughty bits this time.
