An update of sorts...
Well, it's not quite like I'm going to be dropping a set of painted Imperial Fists on you all of a sudden, but I've started off down the road that will lead to there.
That's right, they're now unbagged! Cleaned, even.
I know, hardly akin to unveiling the Mona Lisa, but for me, this is quite the deal just now given how utterly dispassionate I've been for a good number of years now when it comes to modelling.
So, these are the first 5 of 10. I'll select one or two and try out the scheme I have in mind, potentially even dragging out a spare 40K era-Space Marine and trying it on them first.
For those that are interested, here's the method I plan to try out.
Quite a nice yellow, not too over-powering in my eyes, and above all else, seems easy enough to replicate. Before I took the hobby hiatus, I was no Golden Daemon (does that even exist nowadays?) finalist, but I could certainly do better than just table-top quality. So I'd like to get back to that stage, but I'm not fool enough to expect that straight out the box. So better to start off with something along these lines and make good progress I feel, rather than demoralising myself by expecting top notch outcomes straight away.
Anyway though, pep-talks aside, I'll build up these guys over the next few days. My spray paint's on order, should arrive in the next day or so, then I'll pick up the paints from my local store and get on it!
Cheers for reading! And Si, shut it.
