I have some extra touches to apply, mainly cotton fire and hair effects, weathering pigments and maybe… Just maybe… A bunch of those dried flowers that look like roses to scale… But the painting properly it’s finished! After a rocky start, I’m elated with the final result! I feel like I really squished those sprues for all they could give me! Just five units at any given time… But with quite a selection of gear and alternative heads to choose from. Painting twenty-seven little arms was a repetitive, but straightforward conveyor operation… But with the heads I just indulged myself beyond what was needed to practice painting female faces, of which I had little experience. It was that, plus a lot of small golden buttons in this last stretch! Well, and the basing… which I rushed to the point of not even bothering with my “signature” Bubonic Brown/Zamesi Desert base-trim … Heretical at best!
Here’s how they came out, in the configurations I envisioned in “Part_1″… Minus one head that got lost on the dreaded “Part 2”.
Hope you enjoyed the journey! More to come!
