  1. Ok first things first, what’s my painting challenge to win a Plarzoid mellee gauge tool? (shown apr 12 in the tweeter feed upper right on this page)

    Second what was the reason to take a “second stab”? I thought the first one looked great and I’m not certain I see what changed in second stab version.

    I do really like the purple on the mouth of the beasts in the 1st take. I think it makes a good contrast and highlights the MOUTHEYNESS of it.

    So are you hoping to do Legion at NoA Open as well or just starting long term for Templecon and having multiple projects during the year? My buddy Ben is of the opinion that P3 judges tend to favor cool colors in their award winning models. So that could work in your benefit if you go to L&L or GenCon for a P3 competition too 🙂


    • For a melee gauge tool, I want you to paint a single model to the best of your ability. You have speed painting down very well, but I want to see what you can do when you take your time.

      The main reason for the second stab a while back was that my skills had changed. The first version used only drybrushing and washes, and was done in the older GW paints. The second version used a fair bit of 2-brush blending, but still used some GW paints which are now discontinued. The colors are the same (roughly), but still inconsistent and unable to be reproduced in the quantities I’ll need to for painting the entire faction.

      I like the purple / magenta, too, but I also want to experiment with greens.

      I’ll be playing Legion at NOVA, yeah. Whether or not I submit them to the Painting Comp, I’m not sure…


      • Oooh, painting competition? Is this open to all?

        I like the second one more, the fades are considerably better and the first one, though I liked it, definitely is harder edges and doesn’t have the color flow the second one does. I’m excited to see this through. Looks really good. I really hope there’s an Archangel in here somewhere…
