This week I answer a couple of submitted questions on top of talking about my match vs Todd.
So when Aaron saw me pull out the new mammoth I got a couple months ago he said “I must paint that” as he drooled. He finally surprised me with this this week after not seeing it for a while:
A few more pictures after the cut!
Alright, so I finally picked tibbers back up and decided to finish his flames. I might do some touch ups on the arm later when I get the model painted. I’ll get Aaron to take better pictures soon because apparently my iphone doesn’t like fire colors 😛
So since – I don’t know… the spring? – I’ve been working on the Skorne colossal, the Mammoth. If any of you out there are considering playing or already play Skorne and have thoughts of picking up the Mammoth, may I suggest these very simple steps for painting it: 1) immediately regret it. 2) cry. 3) more regret. It’s not that the model is bad or poorly sculpted, in this particular instance I offered to paint the model; one which I could not actually play as it’s a different faction. The owner of said Mammoth, the infamous Kassem, even offered to pay for the paint which I would use but I refused; a decision I would later realise was the only thing that would have kept me in the green.
I liken painting the Mammoth to offering to take a cursed monkey’s hand off a friend: they would obviously agree but when they try to explain the curse, you dismiss them waving your hand saying, “Yeah, yeah, yeah I know what a cursed monkey’s hand is.” But oh no. No you don’t. Not yet.
Alrighty, now that the glue has completely cured overnight, I decided to add some more color! A bunch or orange and a teency weency bit of red.
