Yeah baby - it's that time when I regather the scattered vestiges of my tolerance and humanity from the chaos of secondary education... just in time for next term!
In the meantime I've been making a little more progress, aptly, on the chaotic models I've accrued. The cutting and sticking aspect really has my attention at the moment, so that's what I've continued with. First, I finished the centaur from last time. The belt is a bit larger than I'd have liked, but the sculpting learning curve is a steep one and I'm very much on the nursery slopes.I shall just have to minimise it with my mad painting skillz (if you managed to restrain your guffaw and merely raise a sardonic eyebrow, you have my thanks). Here's horsey boy as he stands now:
Yes, I was rushing while undercoating so held the base, hence the "missed" spot. Speaking of undercoating, I had an absolute 'mare with a blocked can of spray paint - a bit of paint had dried inside the can and remained stubbornly in place until I pumped air into the can using a bike pump which cleared the blockage. And, as a bonus, the can didn't explode and eviscerate me. Woohoo!
Also recently off the cut'n'stick bench is this sorcerous fellow. I didn't do much except stick him onto the banner pole icon (with a couple of extra spikes to give it a more definite facing) from the plastic chaos warrior box set, not the furry cape set, the one before with the hunched warriors with quite a few conversion and mutation bits. The sorcerer himself I don't recognise at all. When I got him he was already missing most of his tab and I couldn't find him on SOLegends - any keen-eyed viewer recognise him? I think he must be GW because the end of his staff is so like the Tzeentch symbol.
The stem he's on is just for painting purposes, I have another flying base ready and waiting for when he's finished. I'm thinking blue robes, possibly a gradient of dark to pale at the hem, and yellow armour. Because Tzeentch.
