Wizardry in Progress 12/12/18

This week has been hectic with the upcoming holidays and such, it's also been a bit of a downer as I announced on Monday that I was halting Let's Paint for the time being. But progress must be made and that's what today is all about!

This week I managed to finally finish the Baal Predator, which means all single model units for the Blood Angels are done. Now it's back to infantry painting hell with a squad of Death Company that I've been starting and stopping for the entire project.

Let's check it out!

Baal Predator Finished!

The Baal Predator is all finished, whew and not a moment too soon. That tank was fun to do but near the end I just wanted to be done with it.

I love painting red, but I need a break from it.

I'll be taking some nice pics of this soon, along with some video of it so I can share a new Miniature Monday featuring it.

I'm really happy with the fade on the red armor. It came out nicely, but I realized halfway through it that I'd done my shadow and highlights backwards. The transition on the main armor should have been like the ones on the turret, but it still looks good so I'm pleased.

Death Company

It's back to work on these fellas. I can't wait to finish them because it's been an on and off thing for the entirty of the commission.

Something about them just puts me off and I can't put my finger on it. I thought that maybe it was the armor, but also it might be the details on them. I do know that I'm not a fan of the "muscle armor" that some of these Death Company models have. It's like they all have a hard on for Dracula's armor from Bram Stoker's Dracula. Overall, not a fan.

But all that's left on these are the bases and backpacks. Then I have another group of 5 of them to do before returning to all red armor with some tacticals and terminators.

Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the Let's Paint series and other videos.

If you like what I do and want to support the site and my painting endeavors, you can do so over on Ko-fi. All it takes is $3 and it's much appreciated.
