Unfortunately, I am still in the grip of massive overtime at work - with one colleague sick and another currently caught on leave. So I am struggling to keep a lid on things; scrounging a little time for everything, including eating and sleeping!
Well I did have half a day off, and I spent several hours of it painting up the Conan model I started/restarted last week. I finished off the basic coats and have now started to add highlights and shadows to it.
The helmet I have not worked on yet, but when I have finished with the first round of highlights and shadows, and test fit the model to the base; I usually then go around a second time deepening or brightening up the shadows and highlights respectively according to the need.
As for the base, I have finished up the stakes and painted up the bronze shield and standard. I have to admit I enjoyed doing these more than the model! The next step with the base is the flora and ground work which I will add when the Conan model is finally ready.
Until next time, farewell and good health from Nightrunner!
