I'm pleased to say that the first models I've painted in the new flat are now finished!
The Ryza Ruins set is now fully painted. It's only a tabletop quality scenery job, but that's entirely reasonable for their joint responsibilities as 40K universe scenery and miniature photoshoot props and backdrop.
The paint recipe is simple enough - black undercoat, then two sets of three passes of lighter and lighter drybrushing. The inside is blue-green, the outside orange. A few details were picked out in metallics, everything got a sepia wash, then everything got a lilac (Slaanesh Grey) drybrush to bring it all together.
Of course, inconveniently, a small Kickstarter has delivered. These three highly reputable looking persons are by Black Crab Miniatures. I'm not sure if they're ever going to go to retail, so I'm pleased I picked them up.
So, how are the scores?
Painted / Purchased Score: 40 / 29
We're definitely seeing some improvement! I'm not yet in the clear and painted twice as much as I've bought / acquired, but it's going in the right direction.
I'm trying to knock out a few crates for HATE which should be an easy win on stuff painted. The Space Marine Heroes will be next up, but I will also get the Black Crab stuff prepped up sooner rather than later.
