Iron Hands - Batch painting continues...

Another crazy week, and not a whole lot of time to spend painting. Did manage to get some brush time in this evening, though!


More or less got everything done but some minor clean up and the bases at this point. In the home stretch now! Keeping with the limited palette has been interesting, but I do have to say that I'm looking forward to painting up some Alpha Legion and/or Thousand Sons - something with a little more colour!


I'm a little behind my planned schedule, but I have nothing planned for tomorrow evening (here's hoping it stays that way) so they'll be done just a day or two 'late'. Still feeling confident I can get the heresy-era Iron Hands done by January - I finally got notification that the first order has shipped, and I'm really jazzed about the recent Iron Hands previews coming out of Forge World!

So good and so fast! I need some of that to get through my Orks!

Cool, but one there are all those shiny new FW kits coming....

@Sir Tainly: Thanks!

@Stephen: Indeed, there will be a lot of new resin showing up on the blog in short order!

These guys are a good "take a break type army". They will look great on the table!

@Zab: Totally. I'm looking forward to applying some of the weathering experiments on models with more color. Doing paint chips and mud on black armor just doesn't have the visual impact that it does on colored areas. Still, good practice and it's been nice to do a 'low pressure' paint scheme!

I dunno about the chips, that kind of metallic highlight to the deep black has looked good on stuff I've seen with this effect.

Anyhoo, excited to see this FW stuff, you're certainly ready to paint them up.

@Dai: Aye - I've been devouring tutorials left and right! The first box of joy should be arriving later this week, really looking forward to it!
