Actually, while Greg was rubbing elbows with the near-famous intellectual elite of 40K, those of us left running the shop were getting real work done. Last weekend turned into a blizzard of activity focused on finishing all the sub-assemblies of the Wraithknight to the point where I could actually start painting this monster.
Also I was staring at my desk and weird stuff started happening. More on that later.
So with mighty (or not) airbrush in hand, I jumped out to the garage to get all the base colors done so that this week I could do all the charcoal shading.
If you're new here, refer to this thread for the details:
Also, I have to make up my mind on how I want the head to look. Right now, it's the off white color the wraith cannons are painted in, but I haven't decided if I am going to fill in the middle part of the head assembly to look like a black glass canopy like a lot of other painters have portrayed.
It just happens from time to time and I'm guessing you know that.
So I was sitting at "the desk" staring at a Falcon chassis and suddenly I saw wings on it. Not feathery wings, but more...Eldar-ey kind of wings. I started looking at left over bits and pretty soon I was holding up anything that even remotely looked like a wing and eventually settled on a couple of Hemlock tailfins that I had left over from my Crimson Hunter builds.
Anyway, I eventually settled on one of those shoulder mount things from the WK kit, attached some plastic tubing so that it would stand in the upper turret mount, but also ended up adding a flange made from green stuff so that the gun would rest correctly on top.
Battle of Pathos, Pt. II has been formally scheduled for April 11th, so with a hard date in front of us, the Eldar kin need to get our noses to the grind stone. The Imperials will be even less forgiving with an additional 1000 points per player.
And now I leave you with the King.
