What have I done to myself? I got a bunch of my Raging Heroes troops assembled, converted and primed, along with associated P3 figures.
In no particular order: 2 units of Doom Reaver Swordsmen including UA (one P3 model, one RH). Fenris, his dismount, a RH version of Fenris and a unit of Blighted Nyss Hex Hunters. At least on the Doom Reavers I’m going to have to find a way to force myself to paint them with a decent amount of speed or they’ll never get done.
Working on some Gray Maidens – grunts, lieutenants and captain – for Curse of the Crimson Throne.
VMA Steel + Citadel Guilliman Blue (glaze), then mixing in VMA Aluminum for the armor. Wash of Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade (shade). RMS HD Crimson Red for the cloth bits and RMS Tanned Flesh for the exposed skin.
So back on Black Friday, Privateer Press had old Mk II battleboxes for $10 each. That was too good a deal to pass up, so I got a Khador one amongst others. I don’t really need more Destroyers or Juggys, though, and I DO need more Marauders. Marauder arms are hard to come by now-a-days, so I was forced to make my own. My modding skills don’t match my vision, but they are more than serviceable.
Step #1, remove “upper arm” part of arm from some random arms.
Step #2, take some small binder clips and, using a Dremel, remove the rounded bits
Step #3, using styrene bits, construct an arm. Fill in binder clips with putty
Step #4, decorate the arms a bit, also zenithal priming
Step #5 (the hard to photograph one), deepen shadows and brighten highlights a la sketch style
Now, on to painting. Here’s what I have so far.
Adding some oranges and yellows to the bright spots, and giving it a quick matte varnish (the Daner and Rowney inks are very glossy)
Marksman, started out using techniques from “sketch style.” Black + white directional highlights. Then Payne’s Grey ink from the bottom and finally drybrush titanium white.
More Legion of Everblighties gracing my paint table. Relatively close to done on both.

I used Reaper’s new NMM Gold triad. It’s so-so, I think. This has also forced me into doing NMM steel on the swords. I’ll have to do a little bit of research since they won’t be quite as easy for the highlight placements.
