The Solo Painting Week will actually take longer than just one week. There is not enough spare time at the moment for painting. Nevertheless there is some progress to show. Both Minions have their basic colours done and only some washes and basework left. The Marksman will need some more effort to be completed.
Started a little later than I wished to but last week and the weekend were to busy and my Black Ivan conversion took longer to finish than expected.
I just realized how similar the three solos are. All carry a rifle and wear some sort of mantle. I will try to give them each a distinctive colour scheme (the Marksman will fit my other Widowmakers). Alten will wear different shades of brown and grey while Saxon Orrik will get a scheme similar to the PP studio scheme. Here is a pic of the progress made yesterday and this evening. It’s interesting to see how painting white eyes with black pupils gives the faces a lot more character.
Here are the final results of the poll for which models to paint in the Solo Painting Week. Saxon Orrik and Alten Ashley share the first while the Widowmaker Marksman and Kovnik Joe share the second place. So there is still a tie which Khador model to paint. I decided to let my 2.5 years old daughter choose the third model and she picked the Marksman (good choice, already base-coated, less to do).
So during this week I will paint:
- Alten Ashley
- Saxon Orrik
- Widowmaker Marksman
The full metal Black Ivan is almost finished so I can start this or the next evening. Don’t expect pictures of the ‘jack before Friday as I need some daylight after work to make nice pictures of it. I will post evening progress update pictures of the solos during the week.
At the time writing this, there is a tie in the poll for my next project, the Solo Week. Four of the six options have the same number of votes. I really would appreciate having some more votes to decide which three of the models to paint next week. To help choosing I made a group shot of the six models to vote for.
