I think I’ve finally “finished” my Stryker3! The only thing left to do was his shield and his base, which as I’m typing this isn’t finished, but as soon as I *finish* typing this I am going to go downstairs and finish!
I decided I wanted him to have a shield on that arm of his, and after buying 1 of every shield in Cygnar, I settled on a heavily modified Thorn shield… it was just too big in its default state, so I hacked it down. Now it looks a little silly, but at least it’s the right scale!
So, going to go downstairs, mount that onto Stryker’s arm, paint it, and finish his base!
Of course, by the time you read this, it will be done…
Edit 1: Indeed, I did go down and start Stryker’s base… it’s not done yet, but hopefully tonight!
You can also see the shield I’ve crafted for him… not ideal, but it works. Mostly. Hopefully it will get done tonight!
As you can (sorta) see, I’m also finishing off the final two Stormlances at the same time. With any luck everything will be ready for Wednesdays gaming!
More pictures to come before this goes live… hopefully of Stryker right before he gets his protective clear coat!
Edit 2: Okay, so it’s Wednesday, and I started this post on Sunday… but he’s done!
Base thus finished, I went ahead and started the last bit on Stryker3… his shield. The areas that will be gold got a quick paint of “Bootstrap Brown”, and the silver was done in “Cold Steel” followed by a black wash.
Lastly, this morning Stryker’s shield got the final golds, and the base got its ticks.
I still need to put the gold lines inside the blue ticks he has, give the golds on his shield a quick brown wash, and then send him off to be protectively coated in 2 coats of High Gloss Triple Thick varnish-in-a-can, followed by 2 or 3 coats of “Matte UV protector” in-a-can.
But done enough for now! Hope you enjoyed reading about how freakishly long it takes me to finish a model… in this time Nick probably finished pThags, 15 Shredders, and a Juggernaut…
