One thing that I realized when I busted out the Orks for my first game in almost two months was that I am way behind on my painting for LVO. February is just around the corner! Halloween has gone and Thanksgiving (here in the States at least) is coming up fast. I only have five weeks left of the semester at School! I need to kick it up into high gear.
|Well...crap. That's a lot!|
I decided to work on the Warboss and Zhadsnark to at least have half of my HQ's finished. I have base colors on the Meganobz, Mad Doc, and about 25 more Tankbustas so there is some progress there as well. A while back I made my own Wazzdakka Gutsmek scratch-build but I had made a mistake on it. I primed it in bright red using Army Painter Demon Red. I do not like this primer. It sprays inconsistently and it goes on very thick. A lot of the details on my Wazzdakka were hidden by the thick primer. I decided to strip it using Non-Acetone fingernail polish remover diluted in water. I have done this before with success on those blue Boyz.
|Poor little guys.|
|Not sure where this piece came from...|
|A head from the Nob kit, I believe|
I was happy to finish him as fast as I did. Now I can move him to the finished side of the board.
|The dark mud is supposed to be a tire track. Might need to darken it up a bit...|
So next up, I plan on finishing the Warboss and also Trukk number 2 before the end of the Month. If I can do them quick, I will move onto the Meganobz. I did get a bit distracted and finished one of my Ork-jective markers just for kicks.
