World Eaters – Light at the end of the tunnel

World EatersWhew I feel like I made it. Finally over the hump! I have completed my paint list for the dorkamorka Shocktober event in October. All that is left is the display board which I should be able to take care of a week or two down the road. So I am a feeling pretty low stress about finishing the full army for the standoff in late November. All I have to finish is the hell drake which has already been primed and based red, all of the metal lining on that sucker is daunting but with a few beers it should be a piece of cake. So that is one heck of a load off. Now I am turning my attention towards the Golden Squig painting competition at the event in October. I have been hankering to slow the my painting down and focus on a fun little project. I’m super excited, I don’t expect what I am working on to win, I just want to paint it to paint it, and hopefully learn some new skills. There will be more on this project next week as I make some real headway.

So last week I was hoping to knock out the soul grinder and the land raider. Not only was I able to complete those models, but I was able to take care of the blood thirster as well. Anyway here we go! Picture dump!

  • The speed that you do this amazes me, and it looks good! Of all the details, the teeth on the Thirster caught my eye and look real; well done.

    I still have 10 Hounds to get done for October, and also November, and I’m done too. I hate, no I despise, painting stress.

      Thanks! The airbrush goes a long way towards speeding things up especially on tabletop miniatures. The largest surface area on the thirster, the wings, were done in about 20 minutes while battling my 2 year old for turns with the airbrush. Knocking out the base coat of reds in one sitting on any model is a huge time saver, then you can go into the detail as much or as little as you like. I highly recommend an airbrush for any serious painter.

      I have the intention of going back and cleaning up the thirster in the future there are some things I would like to spend more time on, but for now he is good and done.

      I hope you aren’t feeling the stress as organic models they should go pretty fast, I mean at least it is not more power armor, and it is something completely different..
