I think this is my third day painting these guys. I'm fairly pleased with my rate of progress. My next step is to paint 5 sisters of silence to add to the force. Then I can go back and paint all the gems and do any final highlighting. It wouldn't be painting if there weren't a fuzzy varnish problem. I had the jetbikes frost, however another spray of semi-gloss fixed the problem moderately well. Will I know how to play this army at NOVA? No. Will I have an army to play. Yes. I'll count this as a win. Anyone else in the midst of convention preparation?

The army I planned for the NOVA Open is finally underway. A lot of thins prevented me from starting this force. However, after a day and a half of painting, I finally have a WIP worth showing. For a ludicrous reason, I painted the red first, and then started on the gold. Definitely not the right order!
Will I finish these for NOVA? It is only two weeks away, so I really don't know.

I'm donating this model to a raffle for Doctors Without Borders. If you like it, you have the opportunity to win it with just $5.00 donation to the non profit Nova Open Charitable Foundation. (which is separate from the Nova Open LLC). The NOCF will ship the model anywhere in the world!

I'm still struggling to get photos of this beast. It was glaring bright in DC today, so even with the blinds closed I couldn't keep the reflections down. My plan for tomorrow is to just build a giant light box, so I'm not at the whim of the time of day. Still, I'm fairly happy with this photo, even if the legs are out of focus.

I've just started playing around with layouts on this 2x2 board. Eventually there will be four of them to make up a table. Having cast some foundations it makes sense now to smash them up and place them into the ruined city board. I may make a mould of the this whole 2x2 and then just add buildings and debris as needed.

I might take a pass at highlighting the under side of each paint chip. There are just too many to make that enjoyable. Despite that, I am really enjoying all the minor progress being made. I imagine that most people wouldn't recognize the changes if I showed before and after pictures, but I know what is being accomplished, and there is satisfaction in that. I just wish it were easier to see the titan crew and cockpit. I put a lot of work into something that will never be seen.
The fist is now paint chipped, and ready for knuckle lettering, and the top guns are mostly complete. (some paint sloughed off due to resin issues..that will be a pain) Once I have the two shields painted, this guy could walk.
Maybe it is time to bring this over to the Springfield GW store....
