So, after over a month of hiatus the Astronomican is back, and back with some progress! The first Deathwing Squad is complete!
For some reason I cannot fathom its taken me over 3 months to paint 5 models - in my opinion shockingly slow work, and something I'm going to have to improve on in my up coming 'Tale of Painters' project. However, the models have still turned up very well in my opinion and include a simple banner conversion and my first attempts at faces and detailed power weapons.
The one obvious glaring omission is an actual banner. I am working on a number of ideas for this. Freehand painting is at this stage out of the question (though check out this obscenely good freehand banner - be sure to scroll down the page to be see a step by step picture). I am looking at either a high quality print out that would be PVA'ed onto the banner or using a one of the plastic icons from the Ravenwing boxed set. I'm leaning towards the former option, simply because I really want to use the actual Deathwing Banner.
I also intend to do a full set of highlights on these guys in the future, but for the sake of my own sanity I want to start on the rest of the army!
I seem unable to make these photo's into attachments, but more detailed versions can be viewed at my Picasa Album.
Anyway, be sure to read todays two other posts, comments and criticism are always welcomed.
