I'm still alive and I actually painted something.
I hadn't painted, let alone finished anything, in what seems like forever. I have plugged away on some Harlequins here and there, but nothing particularly interesting. I grabbed up a Necrosphinx of my friend's for some motivation.
I've noticed online that people seem to really like this model and are lamenting it's out of print status. I definitely can appreciate that feeling. I have a massive Vampire Counts army and appreciate immensely the undead models GW has put out over the decades. On to the painting.
It's a rather decent size for a model. My friend had magnetized the wings which was nice. I prefer to do all my work in pieces. The head was magnetized, but not anymore. It still comes off and sticks rather well. I got to work on it in phases. I started with the wings almost start to finish. Then did a lot of work on the head then on to the body.
The rest of his army is a heavy red and gold, so I went with something similar. I had intended to really limit the gold, but every time I added it it just looked good to me. I went for a large amount of black lining,
I've started some prelim work on the next project. Hopefully it doesn't take me a year.
