So with my new found motivation in hand I re-arranged my space and set up a little portable painting station. I have one of those standing reading lights that projects the light upwards, to this I added a clamp lamp with a 60w bulb in it to give me directional light, and an ott light to sit on the actual table. Between them I have enough light to paint with without killing my eyes and slopping paint willy-nilly all over my models. The result...
|The portable painting station complete with current project.|
|Hard to see in this shot but the three base colors are green (orc skin), brown (wood & leather) and grey (metal & pelts).|
|A bit more clear in this picture. Now to just do the last base color then its all highlights and clean up.|
The final base color will be the accent color, which varies by unit, which will be red for this unit. Then I will do the highlights for the brown and grey. The green is already done on all eighteen strips actually. So with any luck I will be done within a week with this unit and moving on to the next on. Stay tuned!
