From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I thought it was a couple of months since I did an On the Tray; turn out it was October 2013. So, a while then.
This month you can see the current Bones models, plus the last model in the Imbrian Orcs & Goblins collection, which is actually a troll shaman. It’s a big, impressive model and I am enjoying the painting so far.
As you can see from the bits that aren’t yet painted, I am painting over a white undercoat. Some people prefer black. I use both depending on the models. I look at it as being like wearing clothes: a white undercoat is like being naked; nothing is hidden. A black undercoat is like wearing clothes; you can hide things.
I go for black undercoats if I am in a hurry (which rarely happens these days) or if I think the model suits it. The Anglo-Dane models for SAGA were mostly painted over black. White is also useful when I want to force myself to actually paint the detail on models and not just hint at it. These bones models are very well-detailed and I have used white every time so far.
