Hail, and well met.
This week has been challenging, but rewarding. Not even a bout of influenza could stop me putting paint to miniature, and although progress was slow, it has been nice to sit and get back into painting again.
The main effort this week has been getting base colours on, and I’ve deliberately started with my Aetherwings, as they’ll inform how I tackle the Star Eagle, and help me dust off the hobby cobwebs before tackling the main star of the show, my Knight Venatrix.
I’m following the Aetherwing painting guide as prescribed by the legendary Duncan Rhodes here and, so far at least, it seems to be working:
I also mentioned this chap last week:
He’s now keeping company with a twin brother, both of whom will be acting as sentinels to a scratchbuilt Realmgate I’m working on. Several more parts arrived this week, and I’m really looking forward to making something unique that will hopefully grace a tabletop alongside my skirmish and subsequent Vanguard force…
Finally, I received a rather awesome gift this week from one of my fellow bloggers, and I have to say it’s been pretty inspirational!
This week, spurred on by this amazing print, I plan to finish up the Aetherwings, and start work on the main event with my Venatrix. Pop back next week to see if my constant battle with hobby inertia remains successful!
