I haven’t painted any figure for a while!
I have few assembled models waiting for painting, it’s one of them.
Here’s Chimera, from Games Workshop. It’s plastic model version.
Cast isn’t greatest, it for sure has less details than any resin model they’ve made. On the other hand, it’less fragile. And that’s it.
Seams were pretty large and it took a while to finish prep-work.
But building part itself was rather straight-forward, so my WIP is going to focus on painting. Starting here:
I’m often getting distracted when I’m painting kits. This results in paints getting dry and wasted (since I’m using acrylics, which dries fast).
Once I’ve been browsing net for reference pics and I’ve found this idea on someone else’s blog. It turns out you can buy such wet palette, but since I’m broke – I decided to make my own.
Here’s short comic about that.
Tamiya’s WWII German Machine Gunner (greatcoat) in 1/16 scale.
Figure is hand-painted, using Vallejo’s acrylics, Mr. Metal Color (stainless steel) and chalk pastels were used to achieve weathering effects.
Thanks to my Boyfriend, I can show you those amazing shots.
I’m building this one for my Father. We’ve seen this model few years back, but never had an opportunity to get it. Recently I’ve got it and made a surprise for my Dad. Now I only have to paint it. It’s Tamiya’s model and as you can imagine – it’s really well done, I didn’t have much work to do while assembling.
Here’s first part of WIP, where I start to work on gun, coat and I did base for this figure.
