After painting an entire unit of Skavenslaves in one whack was such a drag (an army painter I am not), I thought I’d approach the next unit in smaller chunks, figuring that being able to complete each step quicker would allow me some more variety in my painting experience, and thus I’d be able to get throughout more enjoyably (and quicker!), as well as being able to standardise somewhat (so each batch would have the same colour fur, removing a few steps from the painting process).
So I prepped myself the majority of the unit, and the selected six as my first group to paint.
This was… during the summer I think? And I’ve just finished them this week:
The secret to getting them finished was deciding I was going to focus on stuff needed for Last Days, at which point I decided I needed to make some space on my painting tile and knocked out the remaining steps over a few evenings.
Here is a side profile view, showing off some shonky freehand shield runes:
Six down, twenty something more to go! Plus characters, and a war machine. On top of all the other projects I’ve got on the go. But then again, my opponent has already finished his 500 points, so that’s motivation to get finished! The same opponent that has recently expressed an interest in inq28 though, so add another distraction to my ongoing projects…
These additions bring the Skaven points total so far to:
188 / 500 (I think - I don’t have my army book to hand as I type this!)
And also brings the Tally to:
9 vs 7 = +2
Back into the positive! Best not buy the next issue of the AOS part work then…
