Khador Juggernaut

I totally forgot to take WIP pictures as I did the base. I used Woodland Scenics Soft Flake Snow for the snow, and Woodland Scenics Water Effects with a little bit of VMC Verdigris glaze mixed in for the ice. In the future, I think I will use a white ink instead of the VMC paint so the ice is a bit more transparent.

WIP Khador Juggernaut

More WIP pictures! I brought back some of the metal highlights, highlighted paint chips, and worked on the visor.

I did some work with my Secret Weapon weathering powders. I think they’re awesome, but I can tell I have a lot to learn!

Here is another WIP of the Khador Juggernaut. At this point I have done salt and hairspray chipping, an oil wash, and some Secret Weapon weathering pigments (so far only on the arms, and not finished). I’ve learned a lot so far about weathering painting this model. It is the first one I’ve done this much weathering on.

Another difference time makes

Time and practice can make a huge difference in your painting. Today, I looked back at a model I painted about a year ago that I just painted another of. They are Reaper Finari. Although I painted another Finari in between them, it was a commission with a specific time budget and paint quality, and so it really can’t be compared. The yellow and blue Finari was painted in February 2014, and the teal and purple Finari I just finished in June 2015.

Reaper Finari 14093

This model was such a blast to paint. I’m sure I will end up painting her again down the road, but for now this is definitely my favorite version of her.

Commission scheduling

So I’ve developed a mean case of tendonitis in my right wrist/thumb, and so now I have to wear a splint. This is slowing painting down enormously, so unfortunately┬áthis will affect my turnaround on commissions for a while. Due to the several weeks I’ll be spending wearing this splint, already scheduled commissions, and other scheduled events in August, the next available time I have in my schedule for commissions is the 2nd week of September.
