More Painting!!!

I got a ton of painting done this last few weeks.  My Contemptor is just awaiting the new claws from Forgeworld, half of Tychos command squad and figured out how I want to paint my Dark Eldar.

I Got A New Toy

I got an airbrush on Friday.  It is fun.  I have been doing all sorts of research on thinning paint and cleaning the airbrush.  I am painting my Furioso and the other four members of Tychos honour guard with it.  So far so good.  (Dreadnought not pictured)

I have also got more work done on the contemptor.  I have most of it put painted and glued together.  It have been a blast working on it.  It had very few flaws.  My resin working skills are lacking so any flash or mold lines are my own fault for not cleaning properly. The details on the model are great for painting. 

The eagle on the chest just screamed at me to paint it like it was carved from marble.  I still need to do a bit more work on it,  but it is looking nice.

The final posing is still waiting on an ork body for the foot to rest on.  I will set it up with its foot set on a rock or something for the time being.

A Development!

I already got reply to my email to Forgeworld.  They said they can not sell my just the finger sprue.  However they are going to mark it as missing from my order and send me another one.  GW and their awesome customer service at its best.

Long Time... No Post

Wow I havent posted anything in a long time.  I have been working on painting stuff for the LPC still.  I am so bad at procrastinating.  I recently started learning German.  Between that and video games I have been spend way to much time away from my paints.  I did however get a big boost to paint more.  I bought myself a Relic Contemptor Dreadnought from Forgeworld.  I was super excited when it arrived at work last week.  I started cleaning it and prepping it as soon as I got home for lunch.  I have hand primed it and done my usual BA red recipe on it.  I am just waiting for the ink to dry before I start working on details.  I did have one little hiccup in the whole thing.  I was in a rush to clean the arms so I could start painting and didnt think to put the plug in the sink when I was rinsing pieces off.  Before you can say, "Emperor save me", two fingers had already washed down the drain plus I almost lost a few other pieces.  The kit did come with extra regular fingers (I am using the claws), to which I have added blood talons to kind of cover my screw up.  I fired off an email to Forgeworld to see if I can get some more claws to replace the one I lost but we will see how it goes.

I have also finished my assault terminators and the priest for Tychos command squad.  Just the other four members to paint plus my old metal Furioso and I will have done it again for this year.  Only twenty more days though.

Anyway, heres pics to prove it.

( Sorry the pics are bad.  I had to take them with my phone because I lost my camera cable.)

LPC Time Again.

So I havent done anything with this for a while.  A severe lack of modivation coupled with to many video game releases.  Now that the B&C LPC has started again, I will try to start painting more again.  Here is what I am working for right now.  The termies I have been working on for a while, as well as the command squad.  The furioso is one I have owned for a while and am repainting again.

Necrons, Necrons Everywhere!

So as everyone knows, the necrons are coming.  They look pretty good.  Cant wait to see the codex though.  I am thinking of starting them.  Just for painting and showing, though.  Though I kind of want to try grey knights too.  Or just buying the kits for parts. 

My Christmas list is pretty big this year. 
The mega paint set.

Some nice shiny new necrons.
Dark Eldar mega boxed set.
And as always, more Blood Angels.
