Today must be Tale of the Mega Painters update day. Stahly shared his awesome Venom this morning and I'm pleased to share the beginnings of my Canoptek Spyder with you this evening. The rusted metals are done and I've started painting the red armoured shell. I decided to blend the reds by hand instead of using my airbrush. I'm really pleased with the result so far. It's reasonably simple to do with glazes but it is time-consuming. You can read more about how I paint my red here, I'm using the same techniques, just a bigger brush for a bigger model.

Do you want to join in?

Stahly and I would like to open this project up to everyone. All you need to do is be a member of the Tale of Painters blog list and be working on a GW army that you're blogging about. If you want to have your work featured on the Tale of Painters blog, drop me an email at with a link to your blog. Make sure you include a couple of pictures and a couple of paragraphs about your project. I look forward to hearing from you.
