Motivation gets things done
I do actually have plans to one day convert a War Mammoth... but when I do, it will not be rushed. I want it to be the absolute best it can be. A true center-point for my army.
Even with my Golden Serpent entry I think I could have done better if I had more time.
Hindsight is 20/20
But we can learn from the lesson!
And paint better
Pendrake: Working Title :: The Wockerjabby
(work not yet in progress photo)
What is that?
A mixture of reaper bones kitz
Got it in one.
An attempt at a better ^ picture.
It is what happens if a beamish buffoon, carrying a vorpal sword, WHIFFS! in spite of being all manxsome and whatnot... ...and the Jabberwocky wins.
Allow me to translate....."I kid bash it from several different Reaper bones miniatures."
My version was more Manxsome, not to mention Uffish.
What is considered a monster? I have a Alpha Guardian that I have been painting lately and its come out nice. I would like to enter it but I don't know if it would qualify.
I can enter my Screaming Bell if that counts? I still have a little to go on it and I can also enter the Thundertusk I'm working on for this month as well.
This afternoon I spent a couple of hours at my local Games Workshop location and finally began working on my entry. The first thing I did, as I always do, is make a careful study of the model to identify the different paint areas and then work up a paint scheme on paper. At which point, I learned something hilarious. I built and primed this model pretty much immediately after I bought my Start Collecting box about a year and a half ago, and let it set on the shelf untouched until now. I dutifully noted it down in my master army roster though, as a Saurus Scar-Veteran on Carnosaur. Today, when I started studying the model, I discovered that it's actually a Saurus Oldblood on Carnosaur.
I got some painting done there, though, and, after I finish lunch, will launch back into here at my home workbench. I'll post a progress picture later.
Base coating of the large areas done.
question.. the carnosaur you see in my profile pic was finished literally 4/30/2018, but the oldblood and throne portions were built and painted on May 1.... may I enter it?
