Sunday Hangovers...

So this is basically all I actually got done this weekend...FML.  I was busy yesterday with a birthday celebration for my wife's friend.  It was going to be at a bowling alley, so I thought it wouldn't be that crazy, except it turned out that the bowling alley was on the third floor of a nightclub.  Needless to say, I got drunk.  Very drunk in fact.  Now I have no motivation to do any modeling or painting today.  I just want ice cold water.  But here is how the water effect came out with the darker color over the lighter one.  Kind of a cool effect, but not one I will probably mimic on the other two.  I don't know how I really feel about it yet to be honest. 

Here's another shot of it.  Like I said, I'm not sold on it entirely.  As for other news, the only things I have left to buy for my Thousand Sons army are all expensive Forge World things (damn you FW with your awesome Heresy Land Raiders), and at 85 Pounds per model, my family will not be buying me any for Christmas.  So, with nothing else on my mind, I asked them to get me anything Necron!  I don't know if I will be playing Necrons any time soon, but I do LOVE the new models, and I want to try out a few paint schemes with them.  I just don't know what those paints schemes are yet.  Minor details, however.  With that in mind, I bought the new Necron Codex, as well as Imotekh and a Command Barge, so I'll see what I think.  It'll give me something to do when I get burned out on my Thousand Sons (which won't happen until I get the heads in from Poland and my FLGS remembers to place my god damn order for the legs I have needed for 5 weeks now...but I digress).

Until then, however, I am going to nurse my headache and play with my two new cats I got my son for Christmas!  They are pretty awesome, and I get much entertainment from watching them go banana sandwich on my dogs, who as it turns out, are complete cowards. 


  1. Man, somehow I missed this. That rust is amazing! Impressive :)

  2. Thanks! It's a technique I slowly perfected on my Warhound, haha. It also helps with how textured the model is to start.
