I set myself a challenge for this weekend and, even though the weekend isn’t quite over, I know I’m going to fail the challenge. Haha
What was the challenge?
Paint the 17 space marines (Head Hunters) I’ve built over the last couple of weeks. If you remember, these are the ones with actual fabric (muslin) and chains attached.
Was to keep things simple with dry brushing and then picking out key details.
Why have I failed?
As always, I bit off more than I can chew plus time restraints plus the fact that I take more care with painting these days.
I did, however, finish four models apart from the bases so I’m, reasonably, pleased and I can safely say I’ve decided on the colour scheme.
The fabric painted up better than expected and I think the key thing for this was using glue to harden the fabric. Worked a treat 👍🏼
With these next two I’m really happy with the heads. With the use of the W&N brushes I was able to achieve better highlights and the eyes aren’t too bad either.
Looking at them now I’m wondering if I should add something to the shoulder pads and/or other armoured sections? Maybe tribal paint markings or just stripes?
What do you guys think?
