Anyway, there is a big issue with having done models in the past and trying to relearn the tricks you used to know. This isn't a bicycle here, well, maybe it is in a way. Marines all now have their stickers, although some are a bit off center (relearning curve). I played with some extra highlighting and washing, but the way I've been semi-washing/drybrushing a lot of stuff as I'm painting means I've already got some of those effects and the trouble to do that, on the Marines at least, isn't worth the time. I'm setting up for LGS, not Nova Open where I have to fight for points in painting and conversion in the GW mandated meta-hobby silliness.
Down to parchment markings (I'm waiting on my paint pen delivery) and clear coat finish. The following is planned for today:
1) Mix up some more parchment color to get the four bits I missed, touch up oopsies with black as required.
2) As paint is drying, start slapping the various shoulder bits and backpacks onto the Initiates.
3) Finish doing the glued down bits on the two Speeders, start magnetizing and prime them.
Not sure if all of #3 will get done, but they should be assembled anyway.
Also, updating front page to reflect the change in list composition as well as current progress.
Early PM Status update: 1) and 2) above are done! Huzzah! Now just to wait on the superfine pen to arrive, although it might not make it. In which case, a thin clear coat will go on Friday and I'll fix it later. I also just remembered I need to put a few white crosses on the finished DN to put it in the same status as the Initiates and Neophytes.
