Cobra: Crime is the disease. Meet the Cure.

I didn't have a chance to snap some pictures of the Cobras last week, but they're done. Like the Scorpions I still need to do the transfers, but I have printed those out yet.







The Storm Serpents were next on the list so here they are. I finished their undersides and mounted them on their bases. I seem to be averaging a tank a week so hopefully they guys will be done by the second week in June.

Cobra Kai!

I made some good progress on the Cobras. The weapons, gems and engines are all done plus I was able to wash and get the first highlight done too. All that's left are the edge and point highlights, and any touch up. If I don't get to that this weekend then it'll be next Tuesday. After that, Storm Serpents!

Cobra!

I finished up the black on the Cobras this week and started on the gray, there's just a highlight or two left for that. I'll likely get to that this weekend, and may be able to do the jeweling too so I can clean up and start in on the orange next week.






Additionally, my buddy Jon helped me out with some additional Warlocks. I now have enough for three Ulthwé guardian formations.



Finally, I tried out my new idea for basing characters with these Saim-Hann Farseers. The magnet I set into the base works well enough with a pin head glued to the underside of the figure. I'll likely start doing all my characters like this, unless they require extensive conversions (like an Oddboy).

Three Scorpions Up!

I'm calling the Scorpions done, painting-wise. I hit them with one more highlight on each color and finished up the other two tanks this past week. If I have time this weekend I hope to hit them with a glosscote so I can put the transfers on, and then dullcote them and put the tufts on the bases. Next up are the Cobras, which I'm starting on tonight.






These are my objectives that I'm currently battling gaps on. Filling the gaps smoothly has been a bit of a challenge.



Finally, completely un-Eldar related, I built a Lunar-class Crusier at lunch. I picked it up at Adepticon's bitz trading. Anyone know of a paint scheme for Battlefleet Armageddon?
