Journeyman Painting Log # 9

The body issue. 
Took the plunge today, crossed the Rubicon, passed the event horizon, take your pick of cliches (I love them all).  Torso talk is the order of the day here as I got started on my beast chassis.  I hope to get the heads and limbs ready for painting over the weekend, finish the torsos Monday, and have at least one set of attachments for each chassis finished by Thursday.  A lofty goal?  Perhaps, but it's well within my reach.  The torsos need a final highlight on the skin and underplates, pure white in both cases, while the upperplates just have a base coat.  The upperplates also cover claws, little scales on top of toes, and the ridges down the back, so it's a bit more than it sounds, but I'm still confident that I'll be able to finish them off on Monday even with a trip out to Kettler for Hockey Christmas in July (Caps Development Camp).  Last night at the FLGS I fielded a fully painted Legion list for the first time.  The ability to do so without compromising my build is just around the corner.


  1. Looking good! Looks like it might be between you, myself, and your know who for the painting prize.

    Ehhh, who am I kidding, it's gonna be Skorne.

    1. *Your = you. Damn you phone.

    2. I've already conceded the top spot to Skorne. There's still other spots to play for though and I plan on being in on at least some of them.
