When i get a new order, that is of the troop type, i begin with a series of steps.The first thing i do is take the colors my client has given me and see how many of the colors i have "un mixed" on a not pad, as pictured below.
After this i do a test figure, as in the last post and i do one for each different unit type.
In an instance such as my current biblical troop order they follow a very uniform look, so besides slightly different shades i.e mostly beige units with accenting secondary colors, there is little but to begin the chain of painting!
Painting an army can take a while but using the chain method and the dip on the troop style paint job i can get these done relatively quickly at a rate of roughly 25-50 a week.
NEW PERSONAL ARMY COLLECTION
Last week i went to my annual wargames show in Penarth my home town. there i participated in just one turn of gameplay on the Warzone ressuerected Game board and i can safely say that so far i am seriously chuffed that this beautiful game and awesome miniatures have made it to the market once again.
The rules are very convoluted and the re-draft is a bit lazy so i might have trouble getting them on the table, but the army i have chosen is stunning and i love the chance to FINALLY field and oriental collection. i have always wanted to.
This will be the last personal update until after my commission is done so enjoy this picture below of the beautiful mishima leader painted to slightly above SPECIAL standard and given a stunning snow base. i was weary about orange on white, but i am glad as usual that i went with my gut.
