The Vagaries of Life

There is not a whole lot to report for June: I haven't been able to make much painting or modelling time in the past month, due to the intervention of life:

What you see is the state of my front door, as of the end of May. Fortunately, the repairs are now complete, and I have most of my furniture back in place. I have even installed a new, slightly safer, spray booth in my paint area to give me a place to experiment with air brushing.

My first airbrush project has been to try to inject some additional color into my DropzoneCommander Shaltari army. My basic red scheme looked good enough, with chrome highlights and bright yellowy lift-vanes, but it didn't really pop the way I wanted it to. My newest experiment is to add some brighter yellow-orange patterns to the base design and see how it looks after that.

Stay tuned for further updates!

  2. You have plenty of painted Caiman. Burn that model - quickly :P

  3. Actually, I've made quite a bit of progress in the last couple of days. With a little luck, I might have a "3-color" army in time for Gencon.

    Maybe I'll pick up another Caiman while I'm there... :P
