Neglected models

May is neglected models month, a challenge to dig out some older models and give them the paint job they deserve. This is definitely a challenge I can participate in!

I have defined neglected models as being over 10 years old, and not part of my defined projects list.

After being thwarted in my attempts to sell unwanted models recently (tip: don’t hold your convention in a venue with limited parking next to a sports field with 1,000 parents dropping their kids off at the same time you expect people to turn up) I decided to instead jump into painting older models that I’d like to keep.

Here’s the first batch of lucky models:


That’s a selection with a heavy lean towards Games Workshop. The three undercoated models at the front have only just been glued to their bases, with the glue still drying as I took this shot!

If I can get through these models I will select another batch – and there are plenty to select from!

In terms of approach, I’ve been inspired by Le Bim’s speed painting posts and I think the method of spending up to an hour painting each model from start to finish is a good one.

Before shots will look like this:


Nazgul, Games Workshop, circa 2002

Who knows what the model will look like after an hour’s attention, but it will be fun to find out!

    Now I’m singing the Speed Racer song in my head and imagining you driving a race car WHILE painting that nazgul! 😀
