Alten Ashley and Saxon Orrik – finished

Honestly, I should call this project Solo Painting Month instead of Solo Painting Week. There is not enough spare time for painting at the moment. Nevertheless two of the three solos are finished as you can see in the picture below.


Slower than planned, but with progress to illustrate

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.

Solo Painting Week – Visible Progress

I’ve made some visible progress since the last post two days ago. The basic colours on Saxon Orrik and Alten Ashley are almost done. The Marksman takes a bit longer with the more sophisticated painting approach on my Khador models.


Project Solo Painting Week Started

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.

Daughters of the Flame – Colour Test

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?

Classic Feora

Finished the classic Feora for my wife’s Protectorate. Very quick paintjob. Actually it looks like I will have to clean up all the Protectorate stuff again after finishing it. The speed painting can be quite messy at some spots.
