From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
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:
Who knows what the model will look like after an hour’s attention, but it will be fun to find out!
