World Eaters – Wrapping it up

World EatersWoohoo painting is officially a wrap for the Shocktober here you have the completed army set in their display board. I put it together on my time off here really quick and dirty. I need to set some of the nails, sand off the corners, and putty up the gaps but for now it is going to work and I am not going to think about it. For now I am pushing on and rewarding myself for the completed world eaters by focusing on painting a fun display model I want to enter in the golden squig competition. I enjoy really getting to dig into a model and trying new things. I haven’t ever really mastered the technique of blending and that is what I am going for with this model. Let me say, I have wanted to bust the airbrush out so many times on this guys armor it is unreal, The job could be done in about 5 minutes,…grrrrrr. That would be missing the point though. I had one shoulder pad completely done then tried to free hand the icon on to it and failed miserably, So now I get to re-shade the entire thing. BUT! That is how we learn, and I will continue to press on. The clock is ticking and I have the feeling that this one is going to be down to the wire to finish. I have until Friday of next week with some luck I can knock a big chunk of it out over this weekend. Wish me luck! Here is my progress so far.

On another note the Standoff is creeping up quickly too and I do not want to take my eyes off the prize. I have to finish the hell drake for the army and that is it, but holy crap, I started the metal webbing on that guy and wanted to spork my eyes out. But with over a month to get him knocked out I am sure I can get it done. The more pressing matter is that of the bronze spawn. After my success at the FS event in the spring I am backing off and will only focus on two categories of the painting competition.  Doing this I will push myself to be the best painter I can rather than taking the approach of “man I wonder if this can win”.  Ultimately it isn’t about winning it is about enjoying the journey and building new skills and sharing your work with others. That being said I am certainly doing a diorama. I have a rip tide that I was trying to get painted for the FS event that I want to repaint I think throwing that up against some guardsmen could be a fun story to tell. I am not sure about the other category I would venture a guess it will either be the 25mm or 40mm, no idea what the model or scene will actually be at this point though. I was thinking an imperial fist could look really cool but it also may not be a bad idea to get away from space marines for a little bit. Hopefully digging through my bits box will lead to some fun ideas.

Here is the completed 1500 points and change with display board. Just a hell drake away from completion.
