It's been far, far too long since I sat down and painted a mini. Too many other life priorities. But anyways...
So, I painted a Sisters of Battle terminator, and I decided I wanted her as a mini. Games Workshop does not sell SoB terminators. And so began my long conversion process, spending far too much money on bits for a model that probably can't be ever fielded.
A ton of plasticard cementing, ProCreate sculpting, and general hackery later, I came out with this. Proportions are somewhat wonky, but I think they're beyond my capability to fix short of sculpting everything from scratch. Plus GW's proportions have always been wonky, especially for terminators.
A coat of primer and I'm feeling better about this whole project already.
I got the (old) Necron "Start Collecting!" box and finally got everything put together. Time to start painting...
(There is actually some assembly left to do, but I'm waiting for some magnets. Those are a few weeks out still but I figured I'd get most of the painting done in the meantime and just touch up whatever bits need touched up.)
Went to an intense NNM metal class with Banshee last weekend.
we started out with either this guy or a pace marine.
I still haven't ever painted space marine.
It was a lot of color theory, breaking figures down into simple shapes and knowing the intensity of various paints and inks.
Im was not sold enough on the green to carry it over onto the shield, so I just left that as base NMM
We also painted a 75mm knight from noctura, but I didin't get anywhere near finishing that one, not sure I ever will....
Grublicks idly scratched his butt. He was still in his room/cell, waiting for the crew of the trader vessel to decide whether to take him on as their newest crew member or not. He really didn't understand the hold up; hadn't he surrendered to them, and happily sold out the raiders that he had been with? Back home, that would've made him a junior officer at the very least. It was always hard to figure some of the other races different customs, though.
Thinking back, it hadn't been a very hard choice; the raiders had underestimated the strength of the vessel they attacked, and got wrecked good and proppa for it. He was pretty sure the raiders had been cheating him anyway; he always seemed to get the worst of the work details, like cleaning the kitchen. On the other hand, he'd miss some of them. He was always able to convince Nentarc to trade work details; Grublicks was convinced that the man had been soft between the ears to so easily agree to cleaning the kitchens instead of working down in the deep sumps. If Grublicks was careful and maybe a little bit lucky, he could always find a couple of sump eels to snack on.
He wondered if there were any sump eels on board this ship as he scratched his butt again.
I've been on a little bit of a sci-fi kick recently, and decided that all of these one off figures I've acquired over the years might make a pretty interesting starship crew, so I've been trying to tie them together with little bits of story.
Whether they'll ever see use in a game is anyone's guess, although I certainly hope so.
Thanks for looking.
