|I'd previously built the Ven on the bottom right, last week Wednesday night. But in the mean time I recieved a 2nd one in the mail and got him put together too.|
I love that kit, there's so much variation available to it, and now I wish I'd held off on my Siege Dreadnought, because some of the parts of both the Ven and Ironclad kits would have mixed well together to make a really beefy looking one.
In the picture they are decked out with Plasma and Missiles, but the arms are left loose so I can swap loadouts on them easily.

|Last but not least, this week I recieved some holographic powder from my friend Nora (@lizardincrimson on Twitter).|
These are pretty neat and give off a really cool reflective effect when done properly.
Sadly, I don't have all the tools that I need to work with them, but my sister does and she's going to give me a hand with learning how to use them.
While putzing around with them, I decided to mix a bit of it with Lahmian Medium and Lothern Blue to see what it would look like mixed with paint.
I'm a big fan of this and it means I can easily make my own metallic colors without mixing a paint color with a silver paint.
I'm really interested to get more practice with this stuff and see where it goes!
That's all for right now. Hopefully I can get a good amount of paint time in soon. I feel like I've been slacking a lot lately.
Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the latest in the Let's Paint series. Plus if you like what I do and want to support the site and my painting endeavors, you can do so over on Patreon.
