it´s been silent for a long time, I know. Now that I´m working full-time there´s a lot of stuff going on and even if I feel like painting and actually finish something I am rarely in the mood to take pictures and post it up. Same goes for sculpting,
However, having a sunday with not much else to do enabled me not only to finish some models but take some pics of the results.
So here they are: Some Elhiem Australian SAS painted up in a deserty-fantasy-camouflage posing as generic SpecOps in Light gear for my collection.
These guys were actually quite hard to paint because I went for a monochromatic scheme with a sandy base color all over the figures. Only the weapons and shadows would provide some contrast here. For this reason, I had to revert to a trick and create contrast by giving the bases a darker color and adding some subtle colorations (which you probably can´t pick up with the naked eye on these pics, but they do their job) to make the figures pop.
It actually worked out better than expected, for some time I was worried that I might have ruined these figures, but the result is satisfactory.
I also funneled some of my newly earned money into another order at Elhiem to continue the buildup for my Cold War Soviet force.
And I dispatched a shipment of new masters to my caster, hoping to release some new figures just in time for christmas. Fingers crossed and no promises, he is very busy at the moment.
