Wizardry in Progress 3/13/19

It's time for this week's Wizardry in Progress! This week is mostly all about the Adepticon display board for the Friendly tournament. Other than that, I started painting the converted Commissar Severina Raine too.

Let's check it out.

Severina Raine
The Severina Raine conversion got paint this weekend. I'm really pleased with how she's coming along so far and she looks much better to me now that the arm and storm bolter are painted.

The storm bolter especially, because it now blends in with the model a bit more and doesn't look like she's lugging a huge monstrosity of a gun around.

She's still got a way to go, mainly the gold sections and the base.

I've decided to paint the bases on the Imperial Guard models with Mars soil to match the rest of my armies, so I'm interested to see how it all comes together.

Adepticon Display Board
The display board is all finished!

This piece went through multiple stages of loving it and hating it, but now I'm really happy with the end result.

The Sector Imperialis terrain is so cool, but damn is it detailed. I grew to absolutely hate the window trim. That stuff completely decimated a brush that was in really good shape at the start of the project.

While in progress the metallics on the building were gaudy as hell. Luckily they were toned down a lot after the Nuln Oil wash and Oxide weathering.

This is the first time I've ever tried making bases that recess into a board. Last year I mounted the models onto the board via the magnets on their bases and washers glued to the board.

This time, I wanted the models to look like they are living on the board. Plus, since there were only 8 models total it wasn't too daunting of a task.

I'll get a full Miniature Monday post up on this board next week!

But, for now, that's it this week.

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