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. 🎉

I've been doing a bit of experimentation with my miniature painting! First was finding a good colour scheme for my Tyranids and also using the "Muddy Ground" texture paint and little grass tufts I bought back in October (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1855). The second has been "zenithal highlighting" where you base coat in black and then do a second prime with a lighter colour just from above, where the light would be hitting it. Very pleased with both!

I finished the leader of The Crimson Court back in September (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1839) but hadn't been feeling in the painting mood apart from that. I finally got around to finishing the rest of the warband now! (Though as is becoming a theme lately, I need to wait for it to be not hot or humid in order to get the varnish done so I can then put the blood effects on top of that).

For the first time since May of last year, I've actually fully completed a painting project! This is the Warhammer Underworlds warband The Grymwatch, they're a band of ghouls who are completely insane and think they're a noble band of knights but they're actually just, well, flesh-eating ghouls. (Technically they're not actually fully completed quite yet, I still need to varnish them and then apply blood effects, but that's going to have to wait until it's a) not above 25˚C and b) not humid).

Kristina and I both have the day off today, so we went for a wander around Nurragingy Reserve (making a point to do it first thing in the morning before it got too warm). The wind was lovely but damn is that direct sun getting hot already.

Current status: hairy. (I'm playing around in Lightroom on my iPhone. Actually quite happy with this photo, haha).

Doing some mucking around with Lightroom's new Colour Grading functionality. Related, this is a delightfully empty train.

We finally got around to getting a new painting framed and hung up this weekend! ("The Lighthouse", the one on the left). Looks pretty damn schmick, and I did a bang-up job getting it lined up at the top with the other painting.

I was talking about the HomePod with co-workers and mentioned our old audio setup and the mess of cables and how having stereo sound in our office didn't really matter, then I remembered that I'd posted about our setup twice previously — originally in 2014 (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/597) then the current arrangement in 2016 (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/434) — but hadn't taken an up-to-date one. So I tidied up, and here it is!
