Jasper gets back to painting with some IMEF marines


Recommended Posts

Got my painting room into shape enough to start painting.  Since I haven't really done much since...May? I figured I'd just done some quick table top figs to get back into it.

Most of my figs are still stuffed in the closet or basement, but I found a bag of IMEF marines I'd been using as proxies for SecFor IV in MERCS: Recon until I got some MERCS painted.

Picked out one of each (don't seem to have the kneeling guy, have to track him down once I get my Bones out of the closet) and threw some brown liner on them.

So far I've determined I need to steal the comfy padded chair back from my wife. The hard wooden chair will not do for long sessions.....

Just tided him up a bit and then did and AP Strong Tone wash on him this morning.

My phone seems to find all that white from my new paint rack a little bright for taking picks.  Need find a piece of cardboard or something in a grey or brown to stick behind for WIP shots....the red cup is very nice but may be throwing off the colours slightly.

Had a nice cup of tea and did some more painting this morning. Tea worked well as a timer; when it was gone it was time for a break...

First pass on highlighting the Olives is done, although I already see a few spots to improve. And I need to tone down the bottom of the khaki on his legs, those are too bright compared to everything else.

Straps, metals, hair, base all still to go, but progressing at a decent rate for me, for table top.

I gave my back a bit of a jolt on the weekend (stupid ice hiding under stupid snow....is it spring yet?).  Today it is finally feeling decent so figured I'd test it with some simple base coating.

So that's the shadow khaki and olive on everyone (that I have, Aztec and Skids went off on a exchange a ...while ago, and are sitting in my cart waiting for the next order).

Back feels ok, so hopefully get some more done soon.
