Yup, things are starting to take shape now. The hair is mostly done, the plasma pistol was snazzed up, weapon casings are highlighted and some blue details were added to the suits. Nothing too gaudy, but good enough to have some more colour in there. I guess the next update will be the finished models.
Hey there, I'm working 12 hour days since last week, but I found a little bit of time to assemble an Archon for my Dark Eldar force. As you can see, I chose a bare head and added the braid from the Wyches sprue to give him a little bit of personality. Unfortunately, the huskblade broke off (I'm afraid Jes, it was not a great idea to put all those holes in the blade...). It took my over an hour to reattach the blade and and resculpt the broken part but now it looks ok. What do you think of my little conversion?

In one of the last Tale of the Mega Painter's updates, I mentioned we're only a couple of months away from the end of the year and I toyed with the idea of only painting Necrons for the rest of the year to finish this project. Over a month later and I've painted a Helbrute, a Goblin Standard, three Termagaunt test models, reviewed the new paints, made a greenstuff tutorial and reviewed White Dwarf. Why can't I just focus on Necrons? I think I've been subconsciously trying to avoid painting the Doomsday Ark since I bought the megaforce. It's pretty big with lots of sub-assemblies to paint. It actually took me five evenings to clean all the pieces up and assemble it. As with all these "horrible" projects, the hardest part is starting them and as you can see I'm well underway.

I mentioned in my introduction that I have a full set of the new Lizardmen plastic kits waiting to join my army. But before I could start on those kits I needed to sort out my new Skink color scheme as they crew or ride most those. So this batch of Skinks represents my first batch of models with what I decided it would be.

Second WIP update on this project. In the picture you can see the overall colourscheme now. It's basically the classic green along with some sand yellow coloured parts for contrast and additional colour. Kinda reminds me of Corvus Belli's studio colour scheme for the Haqqislam in Infinity. Good colour scheme. Weapons are going to be black.
I'm really enjoying painting these models. Some great details, very cool and wacky style. GW at their best. ;)

I actually finished this model a week ago, but I've held off from showing the finished piece until today which is competition deadline day. The competition is public vote on Facebook so I didn't want the impact of the finished piece to wear thin. Lots more thoughts and angles after the jump.
