But mostly just ’cause I’m not in such a hurry – I’ve got a game this Thursday at Ichinomiya, which I won’t be able to finish these guys for, then end-of-year business means the next game day I get to won’t be ’til January, so I can take it a bit easy.
And man, even with my patented super-lazy painting method, these guys are fiddly. In an awesome way, mind – I’m really in love with the models – but they have many many many edges to highlight. Fortunately, tonight I finished up the yellow, and with that and the black done, the “heavy lifting” is finished. Just metallics and red detailing, plus the ever-annoying unit markings, and they’ll be done.
Then my plate’ll be empty-ish again. The easy-build Redemptor Dread is up for pre-order on the 16th, and I’ll get one of those plus the Shadespire core set for myself for Christmas, so early next year I’ll have a bit to do – and I still have half my hybrids and some 6mm odds and ends on the table. Plus the Apothecary I kitbashed, but I’ll wait on him ’til I can prime him together with something else.
