21 Genestealers in 21 days

G’day Drongo’s!  So where am I at with the genestealers? ūü§∑ūüŹĽ‍♂️  I have 21 left to get done for early November. So I’ve committed to the goal of doing 21 in 21 days. I figured I could get in an hours worth of painting of an evening . Well I’m way ahead of schedule and I might actually get all 21 done in a week or 2.

Here are 11 in three stages of batch painting I’ve got done the last three evenings. Contrast paints are mostly to thank, and making the commitment of 60 mins of painting has upped my production.

Then I have 10 more sitting unpainted. I think over the next three evening I can get them up to the stage of the other 11.
I might have them all done this weekend if not by the end of next week.
Committing to 60 mins of painting every evening has been a lot of fun as well. I’ve set a daily timer to remind me so if you find yourself getting distracted instead of hobbying I encourage you to try something similar.

Contrast Paints: Genestealers and Dark World Sorcerer

I've knocked out 7 Genestealers so far with the Contrast paints.  I'm using Volpus Pink and Ultramarine Blue then giving them a wash of Nuln oil at the end.  I'm quite happy with the results and have 21 more stealers to knock out by November for Monolith-co.

Also had the sorcerer from Dark World and decided to try him out.  I really like how the contrasts worked on him, and give him a very bright and vibrant 80/90s look.

I think I'm sold on Contrast paints, and will continue to experiment and get the most out of them.

All my Wacky Vehicles

JB  started a great thread on Facebook about showing off vehicles.  As I looked around the war room I noticed at how many I actually had.  So thought I'd re-share them as a full post here.  Enjoy all the 80's goodness!
