I got a bit of progress on the two rogue psykers from Blackstone - it's a pretty straightforward paint job, and overall I like the models, but I'm demoralized by some trouble I had putting them together that left some biggish gaps. Ah, well.

I finished the first batch of sci-fi furniture from mantic. I'm working on Clonemart. I think it's a bit too dark. I might need a window to the side for extra illumination.

Yeah, I'm working on a second piece from the same type of box and it got a skylight already.

very nice, Miguel. Is it going to be terrain for a game, or just a wee diorama?

I got started on my favorite model in the Blackstone box (and possibly, like, my favorite model, full stop), Navigator Espern Locarno. Purple isn't a color I usually work with, so we'll see how it goes.

Terrain for games doubling as storage for my mantic figures.

@Miguelsan, you could always go the LED route too if you want to go full-bore. It'd be fitting for a little shop like that.

Having whipped up a Navigator in a couple days (and learning I need more practice painting purple) I got started on some chaos beastmen last night. Should be another pretty quick job, as it's basically the same scheme the traitor guard used (I mentioned this in the BSF thread, but there are a lot of design elements in common between the traitor guard, beastmen, and rogue psykers that make me think they're all meant to be from the same original regiment, which is a cool touch), just with more hair and skin showing. Sadly, I hate painting both hair and skin...

Sounds like a great idea and you seem to be making good progress.

This image has been going around Twitter recently, and it's Relevant: :lol:

Seriously, though, it's mostly that my motivation tends to drop when I'm painting things that I find tedious or annoying, or that tend to have a long "looks terrible" period before shaping up - like, say, large areas of skin. :lol: So I just have to remind myself to power through it and ignore the latest Endless Legend update that's trying to pull me away from the painting table, heh.
