|Green with envy.|
done on the Deathwing tester, I thought that would include more than just the chest eagle. That's all there is though, at least for the time being, but I will be thumbing through the codex, examining box art, and making use of the 360 view option on the GW site to see how they do things.
On second thought there is a bit more green than just the eagle. I did the eyes and the "lenses" at the end of the arm cables in green. Whether they stay that way is up for internal debate, though you can weigh in as well. Next up will be metals and reds, which I think will take care of the vast majority of the model. It's amazing what a little splash of color, even limited to the chest eagle and eyes, will do for a model. The internet seems to be frightened of the Christmas effect when red and green are paired on a model, but my Khador scheme should show that I am made of sterner stuff, so I'm looking forward to seeing how a darker-than-usual red affects this model.
When I started this post my intention was to dig into Icarus a bit, since I now have it in hand, and give some initial reactions to the goodies it contains. My blogging mojo is flagging at this point, so instead of dragging out the process for a half-assed paragraph or two I'll just leave one little tidbit: watch the skies, I'll be dropping bombs on you soon.
