Feels like a while since my last post, geez its over 2 weeks!
Unfortunately I have not been up to much hobby wise. Played a couple of games of WM in the league running at the gaming club I go to. Although I have been using Old Witch rather than Butcher1 for a change. I have enjoyed the change of play style between the two loads.
The rest of my time has been spent playing with footage from my GoPro, I have been out kayaking (twice in fact) for the first time since my son was born and although I have had the GoPro since before he was born this is the first time using it in anger so to speak. I had some corrupt file issues which I seem to have spent a lot of time trying to rectify to no avail. However my second trip out with it gave better results, although not the greatest videos you’ll ever see lol.
Anyway this is my Wargaming Hobby Blog not my paddling blog. So what’s on my painting table at the moment?
It’s getting towards the end of the month and I have yet to complete any models for the PP forums Tale of 2014 challenge, and I have no more “Get Out Of Painting Free” cards to enable me to skip this month. That’s a disaster as I am nowhere near finishing a model, and I don’t have much spare time at the moment. I really don’t want to fail at this year’s “Tale of” challenge, so what’s my plan?
Cram as much painting in as I possibly can and try and get a result I am happy with on my Khador Devastator.
This is its current state…
So it’s been spray undercoated black, then a quick overspray of brown, and it has had some orange and silver sponged on to represent some weathering once the final paintwork is ‘chipped’. It has then had a coat of gloss varnish, and finally some masking fluid dabbed on using a sponge too.
I watched ScaleModelMedic’s You Tube video (spotted it thanks to Plarzoid’s site) on weathering and got the idea from there. Once I have my painted surface coats on, I remove the masking fluid and it should look like chipped paint. Hopefully a quick and dirty weathering technique 😉
Oh and if you are really interested here are the GoPro vid links…
