I planned to finish 24 models today, but instead of doing 24 pikemen, I decided to reward myself by painting up 12 crossbow men instead. It was a nice change of pace, but that means I have 12 more pikemen to do.
So many dwarves!

I finished the first full squad of Dwarfs today, and am really happy with the color palette I chose. Blue, green, orange, and purple are such a harmonious set of colors, I am beginning to wonder why I don't always paint this way. So 17 models down, 83 to go. Man that seems like a long haul!
This 100 model army is being painted for a new friend I met at the NOVA Open. He was so taken by my beaten leather beast man model, that he offered me an entire 40 model forgeworld army to paint. I couldn't resist the offer, so now I am painting 100 resin forgeworld dwarf models. Scope creep. It is a thing. The doubling in size has me using every fast painting trick I know, since I want to ship this back to him as soon as possible so he can get some games in. I might have to try the game out once before I ship it. These models are just so lovely.

Here is a little group shot of all the Primaris marines that I have painted so far. I like the way these guys are turning out. I can easily imagine a whole army of them, which is good, since I bought enough to make one!

I had to matte coat the model in order to see the streaking, which makes the process pretty weird, but I'll be able to go and work on the streaking layer after removing matte sections as needed. Goofy, but the semi-gloss made it way too difficult to see.
This Primaris force is meant to look like it has been giving a beating to chaos. No reason to make a war machine look new!
