Sid's Shenanigans - 04/08/2012

  State of the Painter 
Address (Sort of)...
  This past week was a "Spring Break" of sorts for me at work, since I work for a High School. My initial thought was, "Oh sweet! Now I have tons of time for painting!" Sadly, this was not the case, as events, broken cars, and other things seem to creep in on my extra time. 

  I did, however, find some time to paint and prep my models and finish some projects I was working on. My progress has been slowed on the Borka Family Reunion tier list, because of other painting obligations took priority.

  This is was my table looks like currently, and I figured that I could start basing my fennblades. The reasoning was that I had a hard time figuring where my front arc was on my non-painted models. This seemed to really bother me, and I figured I would just paint the bases of the models first, before I painted the model, so that I could just pay the model and have the front arc clearly shown.

Our little paint bottle dancer... 

  I am almost done with my Calandra for Lost Hemisphere's BFF's. I hope to do something fun for her beast. I will post better pictures of her when I am finished with both her and her beast. She has been a blast to paint, and I originally didn't want to paint with such bright colors, but I just went with it and it turned out really well.

  I am almost done with Boomhowler and Co. I am going to finish the last four models that I need, and then I will paint the tartan pattern for the entire unit. I needed an example of a finished model to keep me on track with the colors.

 Again I apologize for the late post. Things have gotten really busy, since it is getting close to the end of the school year. Here is my plan for after the school year though, I am going to be painting like mad to get all of my models done before Lock and Load comes. I will most likely not finish the all, but I want to get most of them done. Tenacious Techniques topic will be on air brushes and what I have learned from my dad over
Spring Break. Until then, CYA!
