Dark Elf: BaneBeast Hydra

Ok so this was an interesting model to paint. Also used the airbrush a ton on it also, which was great to help speed it up.

Quick base coat of the codex gray and stonewall grey. Small hit on the Hydra with the black wash through the airbrush as well, and we were off to a great start. The rest was a mix of washes and some detail works on the faces.

Have to say that the painting side of things this was a decent model to do up. Lots of chances to play with some layers of paints. Overall the model took no more than 4 hrs to paint up, and my buddy is happy with the results.

The only problem that I had with this model was the fact that it took almost as long to assemble as it was to paint. The gaps on it were huge. You can see some of the GS work on its neck even with the layers of paint slathered on it.

Still have another Hydra to assemble, pin, and GS work up. Then I will have to pick another color scheme, similar but different, to this one. Will probably go with a darker scheme overall. Just take the same colors, but add black to them all so that it comes out a bit more.

Oh and the green template that it is standing on is the stand in for the proper base that is not built yet.. haven't create it yet, and it for some reason did not come with one. Even though the site says it should.

More pictures now..
