I have been doing a lot of overtime at work recently, and when I have had time I have been sorting out miniatures rather than painting them; and more recently at the weekends I have been enjoying the Brighton Festival and generally wasting time in the sunshine here on the South Coast (no sunshine today though!!).
All this lack of painting has been frustrating and I have felt as though I have not been making much progress, especially after the good start to the year. So to remedy this I have decided to re/paint my current edition 40k World Eater Army to get back into the swing of painting armies again.
I will be posting a daily progress on how I am getting on, probably later in the evening once I have had time to paint! Tonight I am undercoating them all black, very mucky, as I always undercoat by hand. Tomorrow I hope to start painting them. The colour scheme I have chosen will be a very dark red one based on an old painting style from an article in White Dwarf a long time ago, as well as also used to great affect similarly by Dons Hans on his excellent 1980's Chaos Renegades here :
So the plan is to do a very basic, but effective dark and brooding paint scheme on 70 World Eater Marines, a Dreadnought, and probably a Defiler. In a week. :)
