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.
After having this thing mainly in his box unassembled the last months, I found the time to glue it together. This is a really impressive model and quite heavy even with all the resin. Painting it probably will give me some cramps. The second picture shows my solution for getting to difficult to reach spots for painting while enabling early playability with the model on its base.
