Awww, no one guessed Ork Pole Dancing brigade? They're for my Spears, hoping to spray their basecoat over the weekend.

The last time the Void Spinners saw paint was July of last year, and I've finally got arround to making and painting the barrels for them. I wasn't a fan of the lack of detail on the Specialist Games versions so I used some Forge World Night Spinner barrels instead. Thanks to the close-up there's some cleanup I have to do on a few of them still, but I hope to finish them up with the Shuriken Catapults on the Falcon hulls.

Image

Speaking of, I finished the black and started on the blue weapons. Those should finish up next week, then it's on to the engines and cockpit glass. Then a whole lot of orange...

Those look fantastic! What’s your process going to be for painting the cockpit glass?

There's some pics of the Phoenix after I did them:

viewtopic.php?p=621189#p621189

It's a dark teal, washed blue on the top and right, highlighted with a lighter teal in the bottom and left, I add white to the lighter teal and do it again but thinner, and more white then thinner yet again, then a pure white dot in the top right.

I haven't updated in awhile as I've been renovating our downstairs bathroom. As that's been wrapping up I've been getting some more time to paint 6mm stuff again. I've completed the cockpit glass, weapons and engines on the Falcon hulls. Now comes the long slog through the orange.

Image

Image

One hull got the first highlight. I edge highlight most of the tank, then go back and to the outside/higher edges with a lighter orange. After that I do the sharper corners lighter and finally put a dot of my lightest color right at the corner.

Nearly done with the orange, I just need to give the back row the last two highlights. After that it's rocks, base edges, gloss coat, decals, dullcote and grass. That should be doable over the weekend or early next week.

Image

I'm still working on the turrets for these. While I finish getting those ready for paint I'll likely see about Jetbikes or Vypers.

Yeah, I suppose they look excellent.

As I said during our game on Wednesday, hurry up and get these done. I'm tired of looking at WIP eldar.
:P

That's an impressive number of painted tanks. Nice orange.

I finished the painting on the Falcon hulls this week, and got them all gloss and dull coted up. Once I get a few more things done I'll do the grass tufts all in one go. I need to finish up making the turrets for these so they look presentable for Fall In!

I also started on my Wild Rider conversion. Thoughts? He'll also be getting stabilizing fins and a back pennant. I used the head and sword of a Harlequin, filed off the mask and put on a Chaos Cultist's face on over it.

Image


This is my Jetbike Autarch/Wild Rider Chief conversion. She'll have the same fins and pennants as well. I used a Banshee head and right arm, and made the axe head out of a Farseer's Singing Spear. Both of these will be getting some putty.

Image

Finally, it was really nice to speed through some units after slogging through the 18 Falcons hulls for so long. I finished the black and weapons on my Vypers this week, as well as the decals. I hope to finish them the gems and orange next week.

Army is looking great Dave, especially the wild rider conversions. For the wild rider chief, did you consider using an ax head from the chaos plastic beastmen? Or was the farseer spear head partially for consistency with the army aesthetic?

Thanks. Ya, but I was shooting for an ax that looked like this:

Closest thing I came up with was the Singing Spear.

I sense that you'd rather do almost anything else besides make those turrets.
