No I haven't got the new box : Speed Freaks (yet / it takes forever , still 2 weeks of waiting. Pre-order next Saturday and release the week after that ( last days of Orktober going to Orkvember)) , but I re-painted an old bike and made it new again. A new base & you can't tell the difference.
I love the new buggy's with their brighter color-schemes and tested it out on my old bike. And I fell in love again with my Ork bike ( almost sold all my bikes ).
So lot's has happened this week. I finished the 9 remaining Beastmen.
I've re-purposed an old Ork bike and made him ready for Speed Freaks. ( When it comes out eventually / Ork-vember instead of Orktober ) So that project is finished as well.
More pictures of the Ork bike & Beastmen will follow in the next posts !
I also started on a new project. It all started when my test order from Forgeworld arrived. And when I say test order , I mean just one model to see if the resin quality had improved. As my last order from Forgeworld ( years ago ) didn't meet my standard. The reason I didn't order there anymore until now. Another reason was ( and still is ) the price , but the wanting outgrew the reason , so I bought the Legio Custodes Telemon Heavy Dreanought. And I'm happy to say the resin quality has improved a lot.
I've started painting on him and so far the base colors gold and red have been applied on him. I washed the gold with sepia and I'm currently drybrushing the gold again with the same gold color.
No progress on the female Daemon. Not sure witch colors to use , but I'll figure it out ... eventually.
I'm still working on the same miniatures as a month ago , but the end is in sight.
The Bestigors are 85 % finished. Only highlight and bases to do & some dead heads...
Female Daemon 75 % done , little progress since last week.
I had planned to paint Orks this October.
But as GW is waiting to release their new Ork Buggy untill the very last weekend of October or even November... this model will not be painted in Orktober ! ( I would fire the advertising guy , as this is not Orktober ! This model had to be released (not pre-order) on the first weekend of October ! Only then can you speak of an Orktober and fully painted models by the end of October ! ) But that is only mine & my wife's opinion...
So for Orktober I hope to finish at least one Ork model and in a perfect world all models that are prepared or WIP.
And sadly not this model... Don't they look awesome ! The red , blue , yellow and black model really have my attention !
That's it for this week ! See you all next week for a new edition & hopefully some Orks !
So the only thing that got finished this week is the 2 bases for the treasure piles.
I made some progress on the Female Daemon. Base color and wash on the armor.
Also little progress on the beastmen ( Beasts of Chaos ). Base color and wash on the bone and chainmail.
And last but not least , Legio Custodes ( Adeptus Custodes ) Captain-General Trajann Valoris finished. I assembled him yesterday evening , base-coated him and painted him from start to finish today. ( See more pictures of him in the next post )
All other mini's where moved of the paint table to create some space to paint.
That's it for this weeks edition ! See you all next week !
I assembled and base-coated another female Daemon , started painting on the Beastmen & finished the test model. Little progress on the other female Daemon , Made the 2 missing bases for my piles of gold ( treasury set from Mantic ) & assembled a few Basilean miniatures and base-coated them.
