|The vengeance, it is dark.|
|Unpainted these many years, but on the road to completion.|
These are just starting point shots. I actually got more work done on these today, mostly base coating the AoBR squad green and taking a second swing at shading down (which is an awkward phrase at best, but nothing better has come to me just yet). This time around I tried a wash (Army Painter Dark Tone, aka Badab Black) instead of a full-on paint. The time invested vs results gained ratio is still too lean for my tastes, but it looks decent enough and doesn't take as long as layering 95% of the model to leave those black cracks intact. I'll save discussion of work done today for when I have pictures of it, so for now use your imagination, then scale it back a few steps so you aren't disappointed when you see how they've turned out.
