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.
Just a quick test of the colour scheme on one of the Daughters of the Flame. The scheme is quite close to the PP studio layout. Instead of two different colours for the metal part there is only one and the studio red/magenta is substituted with turquoise.
Maybe there is not enough contrast between metal and white parts but the dark wash on the metal parts will improve that issue. Nevertheless I am thinking about adding more turquoise, especially to spaces between silver and white parts. What do you think?
