I have finally made some painting progress on my Chaos Land Raider. Painting vehicles is not my favorite thing to do, though I prefer it over batch painting rank and file.
Let’s just dive in some with progress shots.
So, the base coat is down, half scheme in place, and blended shading is done. I still have to shade some smaller areas with washes, but the hard shading is over.
I’ve also done some preliminary highlights on the armor with blending. I still have to get some edge highlights on, and probably blend the armor a bit more.
The other thing is my work on the daemonic flesh. Funny story that; though not really. I have a technique I’ve done like this once before, so I thought I’d improve on it. Long story short, after two failed attempts, I went back to the original technique and liked it the best. So, I painted some of those areas three times. Granted, it was just small test spots, but still…three times to go back to the original idea. Ug!
The blue part, the eye, is for Tzeentch. I’ve worked all four Chaos gods into the Land Raider. The eye is far from done – I’ll blend it in some more, but in case you’re wondering why the blue area.
Overall nothing is done yet, everything will improve (one hopes), but that’s where it’s at now.
I don’t expect to be done with this any time soon either. I’m just taking my sweet ass time with this monstrosity. There’s a lot to cover on this model, no pun intended, and I don’t want to get frustrated, which I often do with big projects.
Updated: It’s finally done! Check out the Chaos Land Raider gallery.
I would like to remind you all about #communityhobby. It’s where you all share with us, on social media, the stuff you’re working on. I then compile it all into an article here to share.
