Even though I got my big target for game day yesterday, I’ve still got 10 days in the actual 30-day challenge, so I’m’a keep going!
Tonight I got started on this guy, who I’m planning to bring to a game night at a hobby shop up in Ichinomiya later on this month.
Basically I laid down the highlights on the whole model, and worked on the helmet, since it’s a different set of colors from the rest of the model. The main event on this guy is the banner anyway – the guy himself will get basically the same treatment as everybody else has (aside from his very ostentatious headgear that’s befitting of the company standard bearer), then I’ll get to sweat the banner. At least the only real freehand will be the chapter symbol and the lettering, but the latter has been a weak point for the whole army. I even broke down and bought a “gundam pen” just for that very purpose. We’ll see how it works!
Since the helmet is basically done I’ll pull back the black on his armor tomorrow and maybe get a start on the yellow as well.
