Until then, I grabbed some shots of Little Barrera's WIP shots of some of his projects. The first is a Wraithlord for an upcoming venture toward Eldar, and the second is some test models for his Guard. Frankly, I'm hoping he finishes his Wolves first, but he's got a short attention span. Lucky for us, he paints ridiculously fast.
I got a call from Little Barrera at about 5:15. Turns out, he was going through his game room and opened an old box, unearthing 40+ Wraithguard he'd forgotten he owned (I know, I know). At today's prices that's... a stupid amount of money. Anyway, he's considering taking advantage of that. He asked for my Yriel mini, so I set it aside for him - by the time I saw him again, a bit over an hour later, he'd already painted a test model. Frankly, this pic doesn't do it justice. The light caused a glare which distorts the blending on the white sections, but it's a very sweet model.
Here's some more test minis. Mike completed his Guard army the first time around using a dip method; that drove the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) nuts, since why bother with dipping when you paint to a high standard so much faster? Anyway, LB is matching the look with washes. Need I repeat how fast he paints? It's disgusting.
Take care - Brent
