Route Updates

Space Wolves continue momentum and are nearing completion of a second-batch paint job.  I’ve started a new basing method and am using a Martian theme in order to warm up the space Wolf grey.  Enjoy!

40K SW progress

 Yes! Found time and sprayed a lot. Started with the Army Painter Brush ok Primer, then a shade of black in the recesses, and finally a top coat of Army painter Uniform Grey.  The models at the front have been oil washed and finally Coated with a matte varnish. I’ll do touch up and highlights this coming week.

40k SW Progress - Slow is Smooth

First lines now shoulder pads are based. I'm going to minimize the amount of wear and rust to just the chipping aspect.  More to follow!

40k SW Swift Claw on Campaign

I love the rust and streak effects by Vallejo.  They really make a difference.  I've got to remember, less is more.

40k SW Based and Highlighted

I've been removed from spray painting for quite a few years yet I'm extremely happy with the outcome I have produced.

Looking forward to washes, highlights, and all the extras soon!

First pic is Zenithal highlight and quick shade
Second is just a base spray
Third picture shows all three stages: no paint, base paint, highlight and shade.

Space Wolves 40k First Primed

Sweet! The airbrush paint booth, vent fan, and catch box worked flawlessly.  I can't believe the pieces all still worked together without a hiccup.  As for the airbrushing, it was like riding a bike again.  The fun part was speed, cleanliness of the spray, and zero excess buildup. The models themselves were Indomitus, leftovers of a blood angels army, and of course previously tested repops.  *BTW, Repops are NOT worth the hassle.  Just buy your models and be done with it. 

Shout out to Army Painter for making an awesome basing color, Specialty Resin & Chemical (SRC) for the casting materials, and Galeria for making such a great flow improver.
