Here are the test models for my army; click on the pic and tell me what you think.
So as the readers of my little blog know - all two of you (if I include myself...) - I'm working on a Chaos Daemons army for the FLGS's Army Project 2010.
Er... I said that... Army Project 2010... I don't know what it's called, since the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) hasn't told us yet.
So last night I finished my Fiend test model and completed one for each of the other Powers. The idea is to come up with paint scheme that is easy, fast, and good-looking. I think I've accomplished that, as each of these models took less than an hour to paint - in fact, two of them took half an hour - and I think they look pretty sharp. I tried to tie the army together through the tones and accent colors. Basically, I've over-brushed the primary color; purple, red, blue, and green, then used the same sea-green color to highlight each before inking them. Obviously the colors are different, but my hope was the shade of color would be similar. Then accent colors and voila! I can assembly line these models quickly, so I'm pretty happy.
Last bit of business... Paul responded very graciously to my last post on YTTH: here it is.
I'm sorry Brent, I didn't know it was eating you up like that.
I apologize for taking it too far. I guess you were the bigger man after all. :/
Thank your wife for me, I'll thank mine for you. Patient women are a true blessing.
That's God's own truth - I'm very grateful my wife stopped me from making a huge mistake. I didn't realize it would eat at me either, but I'm certainly guilty of escalating it. I'm glad it ended this way, since it's proof there is a thinking person behind the words on my computer screen.
More Daemons next time, plus the long-delayed recent tournament.
