Stahly: In this monthly section we want to review the progress of our “Tale of Mega Painters” project, a motivational project by Garfy and me. Basically we want to push ourselves to paint up a Dark Eldar and Necron Megaforce respectively. In my case to start a new army, in Garfy’s case to expand his small collection of Necrons. More about “Tale of Mega Painters” can be found in our kick-off post here. Click “more after the jump” to review all the models we painted this month.
Last month I managed to complete my unit of Kabalite Warriors, after I’ve painted about two third of them in February. Check out the showcase here. I’ve also published a tutorial for my paint scheme, as well a tutorial for the glowing eyes I add to all my models. My second big project for last month was my Raider. I aimed to assemble it and get most of the painting done. I did really well, as the model is almost done. As you read this, I put the last finishing touches to the crew models, so stay tuned for the completed model.
In April I want to assemble and paint a unit of five Scourges, I also want to add a hanging Kabalite Warrior to my Raider. If I’ve got enough time left, I hope to assemble a Venom, too, so I can start painting it next month.
Now, over to Garfy and his Necrons.
Garfy: Quick recap for February, I failed miserably by not completing my squad of Necron Warriors. So I entered March vowing to finish the Necron Warriors and paint two new units… how did I get on?
Well I finished the six Necron Warriors I was painting and I rebased three of the old warriors from my previous collection. I also, built and painted an Annihilation Barge, which I’m really happy with the outcome. I didn’t get round to painting the Deathmarks in the end, however I did change my existing Doomscythe to a Nightscythe and rebase the model, so that’s kinda another unit complete even if it was already existing. Here is a handy tutorial with details on how I airbrushed the hull of my Nightscythe.
I’ve been distracted during the first two months of this project as I was completing the Hobbit boxed game and Tyranid Attack boxed game. On my work desk at the moment I have further distraction in the form of the Eagles from the Hobbit and Abaddon. However, I’m not here to make excuses.My pledge for April will be Necron Overlord and provide a detailed tutorial on how I painted the model and if I get time, I’d also like to make a start on my Death Marks.
