|All but done.|
The rumbling had an effect on my hobby progress today. When the quake hit I was working on Orsus, and once I realized what was going on my first thought was "I need to stop painting so I don't get shaken into screwing up my work." Once I was satisfied that everyone I knew was safe and the house was in tact I sat back down to finish up the metals, but I'd lost enough time to not want to tackle the base today. As such, the Butcher himself is done, but the ground beneath him is still in need of work.
|A new view for non-Khadorans.|
Full disclosure: this paint job is as much to get the mini done as to make it look wonderful. I started with high aspirations when I did the face, but my steam has diminished somewhat since starting and considering the mountain of plastic and pewter awaiting paint it seemed prudent to get the model done first and worry about how pretty it is second. That said I'm still pleased with the results. Orsus has a Terminatoresque "heraldry shield" which hasn't been touched beyond the basic green that I'd like to do something more to, but I'm not sure what. My first thoughts were to put the Khadoran anvil on it, or perhaps a 5th Border Legion badge, but it's in a tricky to reach spot and I may just leave it as-is. Now to figure out snow basing...
