It took far too long, but the first four Scions of my converted all-women Kill Team squad are done! Absolutely stoked with how well they came out, in particular the faces as well as the goggles on the one second from the left. There was absolutely no drybrushing on these at all, but given how much time drybrushing saves and the fact that I've got another nine of these to paint, I'm definitely going back to drybrushing for the larger areas because I want to actually get the rest of these finished some time in the next five years. 😛

I'm in the office today to play some Kill Team after work, and am up on Level 30 this time. Love the view from up here!

Phew, that was a productive morning! Remulched the front garden and rearranged the plants, and laid weed mat under the trees to the right as well as adding mulch there too. And did the mowing too.

Made a few more modifications to my painting table this morning! I attached an extra piece of wood to the front of the top of the arch and moved the LED strips that had been pointing directly out at me—or were at the very back and not really contributing much—to underneath the new piece so they're pointing straight down towards what I'm painting. The entire arch was also moved forwards so I get more of the light, and it's now significantly more rigid as well. I hadn't taken any photos of it previously, but after I'd added the second level to store paints on at the end of last year, I also put a set of strip lights underneath that too to light up the bottom level a little more.

Finished the last three members of my Death Guard squad for Kill Team! I'm really happy with how these came out, I tried some new techniques (much less dry brushing and more building up in thin layers, particularly in the daemon faces in the armour), and I used my airbrush to varnish them rather than having to wait for the weather to cooperate to use the spray can.

Friday night status: a rum Old Fashioned, some dark chocolate, and painting. 👌🏻

The decal-softening stuff arrived yesterday, and today it was low enough humidity and temperature that I could varnish them, so now my Space Wolves are all done! 🎉

Well, I need to wait until I can get some of this special decal-softening stuff so I can apply the Space Wolves logo to their shoulder pads before I varnish them and put the little wintery grassy tufts on the bases, but I'm so happy with how these Space Marines came out! I did full zenithal highlighting, and the sergeant's face isn't drybrushed, I actually painted the highlights on by hand. 😁 And check out his pupils, and the other Marines' eyes!

I got the three Necron Scarab swarms done today, and I am fucking STOKED at how well the gems on their backs came out! They look like they're actually glass!

BAM, that's the Necron Warriors from Fireteam fully done! That crackle paint on the bases is so freaking cool, and I love the little dry shrubs as well. I've still got the three Scarab swarms to paint, but they'll be far faster to do. Then after that, five Space Marines, and that'll be the whole Fireteam box completely finished. 🎉
