Today was a lazy day. I slept in. It rained hard. I stayed in bed. Eventually I got out of bed and surfed the net and painted the power weapon on the Bezerker Champion. I left that until today, after painting a little bit last night. I’d paint a bit, then watch an episode or two of Battlestar Galactica on DVD then paint some more.
I finished up the skulls and armor for the most point. I painted on the purple flames. I even did the pale blue skin, which didn’t go perfectly smooth, but came out well enough. I touched up a bit and the last major thing to paint on the models was the Aspiring Champions power weapon.
I’d used up good power weapon colors of blue and purple already on these models, so I opted for a bit of mint/jady green. I used about a half dozen different paints all made by Vallejo or GW and blended and mixed them on a wet palette. Not my best work but good enough and unique enough to stand out on the battlefield or in the miniature display case.
Now the biggest problem facing me as far as completing these models, is the fancy resin bases. The two on the left will be easy, they just have some dirt and skulls, but the other three. That will require some highlighting and detail work all their own. Maybe I’ll be able to finish them tomorrow, but probably not after how little I accomplished today.
