A while ago, I finished this lady. A bit rough in places, as I tried to paint it as fast as possible for the speed painting challenge on the Oldhammer forums. I failed utterly as it took me almost exactly two hours to paint the model.
The paintjob turned out ok, and I really like the sculpt so all in all I’m quite fond of the model. For some reason, I can’t think of any kind of back story though – so screw that. It’s a space lady with a space shooter.
She works great as a squad leader for a group of Cybertech Wartechs, so I guess a small squad in the white and yellow scheme is in the cards.
Here are a few shots from the actual painting. Not priming the model in grey was silly, for instance. That added at least 10 minutes of painting.
I haven’t painted much else lately (this was done at the start of the month) but have had the chance to work a little more on my Deadzone terrain. All the structures have been primed (several times over) and washed. I have painted a dark grey on most of the ones needing it too, only have two fence riddled pieces to finish that step on. The last session, I sponged and daubed maybe half of the buildings. It turned out pretty nice, even if they’re starting to look a lot more gribbly than I had initially planned. Here are two comparison shots. After this is done, I’ll hit them with a big-ass drybrush and pick off a few details. I don’t think I’ll be adding coloured bits to the panels, as originally intended.
