Shut Up and Paint! 2

January 8, 2012 ·

January 8, 2012

Today I spent a good 5 hours painting up another Iron Warriors squad. Only 24 Chaos Marines, 6 Obliterators and a Warsmith to go until I'm done. Then I'll have 2,000pts complete.

I bought this army with the intention of painting it quickly just to play games while I worked on my other armies, but it's still taking a long time. It needs dipping and flocking after all this too.

Obviously, I'm not really stretching myself in terms of painting ability. This army was intended to be quickly painted purely for playing after all.

However, this has been a great opportunity to practice my freehand and perfectly paint black and yellow chevrons. That will put me in good practice for painting Orange strips on my Tau and perhaps some new camouflage patterns too.

The painting war goes on...

A good dipping will makes this guys look awesome. Gaming figs don't have to be individual masterpieces, its the overall effect from 3 feet away that matters.

+ 1 to Tim.
But i am sure each one of us always looks at his works and tells himself: you can do better! like if each model's detail is uterlly important... we can't escape it!

Also, sorry Tim, i once told you i wanted to build fluff around my army and share it with you. But i kinda lost interrest in WH40k due to the recent codexs and GW's new policy, but i still read your blog! : (
