And just to prove it's not all just other peoples models I'm doing, work continues on the small batch of guardsmen I'm painting. I've reached the stage where I'm working on the red now, and somehow it does'nt seem so painful anymore. I dont know about you but the first few stages of painting models - especially big blocks of them - always feels like it takes forever (okay in my case it probably does!), it is litterally painful. Then suddenly there comes a point where things start to take shape, when the model ceases to be blocks of colour and is starting to take on a more of a finished look, where it all starts to come together. I know well from experience that I've reached that stage with these guys now, the red stage - I actually cant wait to get on with them again!
