So, the Crimson Hunter is getting there now. I have to sort out magnets for the weapons and paint some gems on them as well as the fighter body.

Been working on my Avatar and Crimson Hunter/ Wraithfighter. Still works in progress, but almost there.

What’s on the table

I managed to get a game in, which meant that I had to put away all my paints etc (I use my painting table/room to play games too).

I intend on getting back to painting again over the coming weeks. Here are some pics of stuff that I had worked on, but just never got around to posting.

The Dire Avengers are basically done. I could do more with them, like add highlights, but for now I think that I will set them aside and just get them varnished.

The Wraithguard are old metal models that I painted a very long time. I haven’t repainted them up from scratch, but rather, I altered the paint scheme just a little and gave them some touch ups. I am not overly worried about the final paint job on them as I intend to replace them in the future with the new plastic ones. Mainly I wanted to repaint the guns as they were yellow and I wanted to darken the look of the models. So, black guns was pretty much it. I am still debating whether or not to paint over the red shoulder pads. My army had a lot of red in it. The weapons on the Falcons were painted red. The newer paint schemes I’ve been going with use blue with the black and bone.

So, painting has been very slow of late.

I had hoped to be finished the Phoenix Bomber and be close to finishing the Dire Avengers at this stage.

So the top is mostly done. I want to add some highlights to the black and the gems need a little more work.

Phoenix Front

I decided to paint the undercarriage a bone colour as opposed to leaving it black. So, of course that delayed things. I need to paint some of the more visible gems and I also haven’t attached the Starcannons. One of them snapped off, and I may opt to go for another weapon option instead. I’m not too worried right now though.

The Dire Avengers are starting to take shape. They still need a lot of work though.

Dire Avengers

I’m hoping to get the Phoenix finished next week. With a bit of luck the Dire Avengers too.

So a brief look at what painting I’ve been up to recently.

Still a work in progress, but starting to get there. A couple of shots of the Phoenix Bomber and you can also see some Dire Avengers in the background that I am working on too.

I’ve also done the prep work on the Codex fighter, so I will be doing more on that once I get the Phoenix finished. I’m actually not sure what I will do after the Dire Avengers and fighter. Luckily I paint really slowly, so I have plenty of time to decide.
