I’m not sure why I was insisting on painting mine blue; I like the knightly models with Cold Steel now that I’ve painted 2 units like that. There are plenty of folks who say it’s lazy to paint with metallics and inks and washes. But you know what? It’s 20 models done in 13 days. I am not going to complain about that in the least. And I’m fond of the way these SG look. Good thing I found a workable paint scheme since I have 20 of my own to paint … some day.
Anyway, here’s the Sarge. His weapon is large, when I first saw the model, I mocked it for looking very anime. But after using it to shoot the shit out of my opponent’s models, it can look like that. It’s big for a reason.
Didn’t have the steadiest hands today, weather has gotten colder and my right wrist is killing me. The reason I posted the pic of the Sarge is because I used the wrong armor wash on him. I grabbed the bottle of P3 armor wash and thought, “hey, I haven’t used this for awhile.” As I’m watching it coat the surface of the Nexus Generator, I thought, “It’s not working right!” Oh wait. Wrong wash. So as a result, the weapon isn’t as clean as I would have preferred. I guess you could argue it’s battle worn, but I think it’s sloppy. C’est la vie. I still have time to touch up.

In other news, the Trolls got taken for a test drive yesterday. It wasn’t the severe ass beating I took at the hands of Staggs, but it weren’t pretty, either. It comes down to needing to run EVERYONE Turn 1. eMadrak and the Krielstones were out of the fight the whole game. I needed the buffs from the Elder (proxied him with the Kilt Lifter!) and I couldn’t get him there. At least I learned something.
