The airbrushing took some time to get used to, but it's certainly faster than painting every tank by hand.
And I kept the stupid sawtooth pattern, because why not.

Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.
I luv me my big gunz too.
I rigged my Basilisks to that the gun platform slides out and I rigged up some emplacements for them.
I should check Forgeworld and see if Earthshaker batteries are still a thing. You could cheese them up pretty bad last edition. I know I did......

After sawing the legs off the Rat Ogre, I got them nearly re-done. And someone stop me before I start putting spikes on the helmet. Stop me I say!
Paint jobs on the SquatBosses are coming along too.

Just for Prim Moar Balloons!
But somehow I don't think the GW store in Namba will agree with my conversion.

@TheOtherDave. If you don't have anything planned for the volley gun of your new scion set I'd love to take it from you. either for some money or scion bits.

@konrad - spikes are bad, mmkay. They're also a pain in the ass to paint. Just sayin'...

Thanks! It's different from the splotches and camo patterns I usually see, but I like having something I can call my own. (And if I really thought the pattern was bad, I wouldn't be using it.)

@Konrad: Check out my gunzzzz!
I'm pretty sure the earthshaker batteries have rules in 8th edition, but I've already glued the platforms to the back of the vehicle. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Today I stripped my leman russes of paint with a scrub and toothbrush. Ugh, my poor hands.
I still have to do the weapons, turrets, and sponsons, but I'll take care of that tomorrow.

Not an awful lot to report painting-wise. Last night I did some work on some walls, painted some skin tones on my current batch of Arabian archers and put some basing material on them.

As I ponder what color to paint my Inquisitorial Storm Troopers (currently leaning towards bone-white armor with a red stripe and brown fatigues), I went back and did most of the work to finish off a desert hill I started lo these many moons ago, just to make sure my table for NagoyaHammer is nice and dense.
Miniatures painted in 2018:
28mm: 91 infantry, 6 vehicles, 2 buildings, assorted other terrain-y bits
Currently focusing on: 40K, Shadespire, Age of Sigmar?, Malifaux

I think your Inquisitorial Storm Troopers should be red. Because noooo one would expect that!

I have a, don't know his name, big hammer, double headed eagle perched on wrist, Inquisitor. Would so love to do a Admech/Inquisition/Blanchitsu-kitbash/throw in a comfy chair perhaps retinue and do some Necromunda or something. Someday......
