Slow Progress

This is not a huge post about the hobby update, so no page breaks this time. I expected to have some more time to spend on the ongoing kits but ended up doing other things, planned and unplanned, so just a little work done. I fixed up some more pieces for the Spawn units, clipping and removing mold lines as it goes. So I have a few limbs and one head complete. Not brave enough to remove the eyes yet, as they’re tiny and I’m sure I’ll either lose them on the carpet due to a mishap somewhere or our bird will mistake them for beads.

I also started the base colors on the Nemesis weapons, finally. I spent the weekend pondering about what to do about the colors and decided I’ll use the flat black and white colors with the most vibrant blue I can muster, and simply (!) blend them together on the blade. So far I put in a coat of Leadbelcher for metallics and some gold areas, the rest of the painting comes this week (hopefully).

Probably needs a second coat before the washes. I'll have plenty of space for blends on the sword, but the hammer I'll leave "off".

This week will be exciting both work-wise (late hours probably) and because of the coming of a few special occasions (more on this on another post), it will be difficult to finish the Dreadknight before the break. We’ll see how it goes.



  1. It’s all good Roemer. This weekend I only successfully tried out my new airbrush. That’s about it. I had tons of free time too…got caught up playing some computer games :).


    1. I’m starting to shy away from computer games myself but see myself getting caught in watching stuff. This weekend I blame it on Homeland.

      Other times I find myself watching some painting tutorials. Discovered Painting Buddha’s channel for some advanced techniques, highly recommend it if you wanna try something new.
