It's amazing how much you can paint to such a high standard in so little time. What you've just done would take me six months or more. Wow. Just wow.

Can't wait to see the tutorial.
Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.

hahaha :mrgreen: no the scheme is deceptive. You can make poorly painted models look great without much effort if you weather them enough. The red and white lines are messy, I need to outline them with a tin black and fix them. Otherwise:

1) Prime Brown
2) Prime Bleached Bone / Army painter equivalent
3) Paint Metallic, gunmetal + 1:3 part black
4) Layer Red/White for squad markings
5) Layer Teal/blue cockpit/lenses
6) Wash Sepia/GW Gryphonne
7) Paint Black Lines on White Red/Tires/Any other detail
8) Highlight Beige, White, and Red
9) Sponge dark brown black as a rust effect over the model
10) Extreme light wash in some crevices of orange
11) Highlight to white and varnish lenses/cockpit

I'm about 6 hours into painting after the priming. The total army should be completed by this weekend.

After playing CSGO nearly every day or going out this past weekend - I really need to sit down and paint.

I'll be forcing myself to do some damage to these guys tonight, I set up the work table this morning and I just need to clean up a bit. I do not have a lot of work left - I'm just exceedingly lazy to finish the last 2-3 hours of work.

CSGO?
I love my job (well, I love having a job), but a bad day of gaming beats a good day of work every time!

I'm guessing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Correct, I have 2000+ hours in that :mrgreen:


I was also commissioned to paint a scourge army for a friend, added that to the budget on the first page of the table budget. We're both still working on the conversions.

Primary: Metallic Bronze or Silver with oxidization/rust/some natural damage from the elements since the army's fluff is that it's been planetside for nearly 200 years.

Secondary: Blue or Red lenses and weapons. I'll paint up both to see how it'll looks. Basing will be identical to the UCM flightstands you see above on page 2. All hover tanks will be hovering 1/4-1/3 inch above ground on a flight peg... fun.


He's given me these two pictures for scheme idea:

And this is an alternate scheme of "Dark Matrix Metal" which we talked about would be the easiest - but unsure if it would look good. He said he'd want snow basing if he goes this route. We're unsure if this will blur the detail of the models over a brighter metal.
