Sid's Shenanigans - 03/13/2012

  Welcome back, and sorry for the long wait for the next shenanigans. I was at a tourney that Saturday down at Game Haven, and had little time to paint or post anything. Today I have some good stuff to show today! I have some Kayazy Eliminators that I have been commissioned to paint finished. Then I will be showing some WIP's of Boomhowler and Co. for Borka's Family Reunion List. So without further adeu, let's kick this pig!

Kayazy Eliminators

  These wonderful ladies of death and pain were a blast to paint, and I originally thought that they were going to take a lot longer, even as a table top quality job. There were a lot of itty-bitty details on the model, and it would have been a beast to paint a studio-quality job on it; It would have been a great challenge nonetheless.

  I tried something new with the bases, and I thought it turned out pretty well. I did a Great Coat grey base coat, then highlighted with Ironhull grey and a final highlight with a bone colored paint to make them pop. If you guys want, I can do a mini tutorial on bases for the next Tenacious Techniques.

  Again, I had a blast painting these girlies up, and I can't wait to get my own when I start building a mercs force. I may do it if or when I finish painting ALL of my trolls....may I'm aiming a little high......

Both of them together! 

Boomhowler and Co.

  I originally started these guys a long time ago, and the priming coat turned out terrible. I was so frustrated with it that I just put them away and never looked at painting them ever again.... Until recently. After all that time and painting today, the base coat seemed to fix itself; It allowed the paint to go on smoothly, and without a problem. This gave me some hope for this unit, and I plan to get the entire unit done by the end of the week (if time permits, of course).

  Thanks again for tuning in for another edition of Sid's Shenanigans, and this coming Saturday I will be doing  another Tenacious Techniques. The subject will be on Preparing, Flocking, and Painting Bases. I will show some examples of what I did with the Kayazy Eliminator's and Boomhowler's bases. We'll see ya next time!
