Brushwork – Saturday 9th August

Took a few days off from the painting table this week, although I got back on it this weekend, completing 3 of the 23 unpainted models I mentioned last time, and started on a fourth!

First off, I completed my Hexa Hacker conversion:

I’m really pleased with the way he’s turned out – he’s different enough from the stock Hexa Spitfire model that it’s less obvious that they’re the same sculpt with only an arm swap and some greenstuff additions. I was able to disguise the wonky eye-piece, and the colour of the eyes are so bright that they almost appear to glow! If you want to see the standard Hexa to compare, here’s a link.

Next up I decided to complete my Kaplan with Spitfire:

I still need to finish his base off with some flock. Eagle-eyed readers will notice the little ‘homage’ to my Space Marine chapter, with his lightning bolt design on his shoulder pad. I added a spot colour of turquoise on the other shoulder pad, otherwise the model looked too dull.

Next on the table was my O-12 High Commissioner:

I wanted to try and do something different with his coat, so I highlighted it using Mournfang Brown rather than a grey which I would usually use, and I’m quite pleased with it.

Lastly for my Infinity models, I made a start on my Dasyu Hacker. Nothing out of the ordinary for her, just my usual Aleph colour scheme:

I’ve gone with the bright turquoise hair again for her, as it adds a nice spot-colour to an otherwise dark colour scheme.

In addition to the 23 (well, 20 now) unfinished Infinity models, I also have a commission job for a friend. Here’s the first model I’m working on as a test before I crack on with the rest (another 9 Assault Marines, a Command Squad, Chaplain and Razorback). His Ultramarines are 3rd company, and his request was that they weren’t adorned with all the scripture etc which I would normally add, and he wanted brown on the belts. Slightly different, but they’re his models, after all!

I’ll likely work on these on the side while finishing my Infinity stuff as these are a fairly quick job: one coat of Ultramarine Blue, a wash with Asurman Blue, re-paint the plates with Ultramarine Blue, leaving the wash in the recesses, then a single line highlight of the old pale blue that I own. The weapons are simply Leadbelcher washed with Nuln Oil, while the reds are Mephiston Red highlighted with Blazing Orange. I’ll finish all the main colours etc before I work on chapter symbols and squad markings.

That’s all from me this time around – more progress updates next time!
