So I got some paint splattered on the Mekboy and the Runtherd, they're not completely finished but I'll call them at least 90% done. I'd like to clean up some of the highlights, finish some of the details and maybe some tiny bits of wash to define some areas of detail. I also want to tone down the glowy areas on the Shokk Attakk Gun with wash a bit like the Plasma Gun.
But here is the Shokk Attakk Gun Unit. Almost complete, mainly just some clean-up and basing to finish. I like how they look together, so I'm calling it a nominal success. I'd have definitely had them done using the full amount of time I had. As well as the additional items I have below.
When things were going smoothly and I thought I'd have plenty of time, I decided to add to my original target. So I decided to make a start on a Painboy and a Dreadnought for a bit of fun too. At this time they're pretty much at the point I was going in with the highlights and small details. I'm also just waiting on the post for a base for my Dread'.
That's where my Ork Week ended up. I'm pretty happy with what I got done even with the middle of my week getting disrupted. I'm going to potter about with these and get them finished off quickly. They shouldn't take very much longer, a day or so kids willing. But, onto my round-up:
So... Did I enjoy this Ork Week challenge..?
I'd say yes... It was good to just grab something to paint for fun... I've got no army lists or anything in mind right now, but I'm definitely wanting to add some more to this little seed of a Warband.
Would I do it again..?
Most definitely yes! Maybe not dead on the heels of this one... But I've been talking to some friends about wanting to do it again. Maybe other "Hobby Challenge Weeks" can be organised in future.
I think the addition of a loose deadline did a lot to focus me on the job at hand when I did get a chance to sit at my painting table.
My thanks go to ChicoDaSatanic over at oldhammer on a budget for issuing the challenge in the first place and giving me a bit of hobby impetus.
And thank you to everyone that has read and/or commented on the blog.
See you all later, take care.
