Finally got a bit of time to add some more paint. Worked a bit on the weapons, darkened the bronze even more and added some verdigris. The bronze ended up looking slightly more worn than the test model, which suits the overall quite well I think.

The bronze is:
Vallejo Bronze, GW Devlan mud wash, GW Dahab black/catachan green/water mix wash, GW Hawk turquoise/water with a tiny bit of dishwash added.

Not so shiny

So following yesterdays interesting pictures of minis that might used for some cool conversions - just seen the  warpsmith is Finecast though - I have a small update on the praetorians. The Bronze has been toned down and now needs a bit of patina.

Please please please

While chanting plastic plastic plastic I send a thought to all the gods which names I can remember.

Metal works

Another small update on the painting. Getting the base of the bronze laid down. Looks annoyingly shiny right now, will be toned down a lot though.

Something wicked this way comes

Though I had promised myself no to buy any more plastics, I accidently went and pledged to a horde of these beautiful killing machines. They will of cause be fielded as my Forge Knight Titans. Now where is May.

Praetorian Red

Got a big step closer to finishing last night as I got all the red done on the praetorians. Just a tad brighter than on the testmodel - I think. So I guess it's not much.
Not that much left now, really looking forward to getting these done, so I can get on with the converting, Priests of Mars Have given me the sweetest ideas for some Magi..and servitors....and Herakli....and...and

Groupshot and a couple of close-ups of the Optio

Priests of Mars

Just started reading the new Graham McNiell novel - Priests of Mars, and though I'm only halfway done, I can only say: order it now! That way you'll be having it when I'm ready for a proper review. So far I've not really been able to stop reading, really exiting and so descriptive - my fingers are just itching to go converting.

Workshop pic

Another pic from the workshop. Got pretty much all the red marked down now, the red "gloves" on the Optio got to go though - really starting to look like old father X-mas himself.

 - oh yes, and the Bucs won their season opener yesterday, way to go.
