Analogue Painting - First Challange, Nostalgia
So the challenges for the Blogger painting competition has come to its first week. Most have entered in their pieces, and it is currently in review for voting as far as I know.
The first week was Nostalgia.. and as someone noted this is the first of 6, not 7, challenges for the competition. Seems I can't count.. meh..
The challenges have open themes running for them however, and this one of Nostalgia although open, brought forth a lot of similar themes. Models that either we have had for a long time ( like this deamon prince ) or models from when we first started gaming, or some such things like that.
For me this daemon prince was a piece that I have had kicking around for a long time indeed, and I wanted to paint it up for this challenge due to it fitting the nature. It also allowed me to also bring back a base from before as well.
The base and plinth was something that I tried to used for the GW Dark Elf Sorceress model when it first came out. I thought it would have worked on this piece as well, but it turned out to be far too large to work nicely there.
So since it was far too large for the sorceress, it was left on the shelf of shame for a very long time. Seemingly to be in the vicinity of 4+ yrs? Made fully out of cork, gravel, and a lot of pigments tossed about.
It is not the greatest piece in the world, but it was a very nice piece for me to get back at it with.. and makes for a nice change of pace from batch painting as well ;)
But now back to batch painting.. I have some Jailbirds finished up, but some Krieg girls kicking around that are in need of some paint :D Until then ;)
