Friday night status: A Drambuie, a piece of 85% dark chocolate, and finally starting to paint of the warbands that came in the Warhammer Underworlds: Nethermaze box.

I might be overthinking this. (Though to be fair I've never used anything but Vallejo's black and white primer paints so I had no idea what the new ones would look like.)

Woohoo, my airbrush paints arrived! Now to hopefully not fuck it up while I'm using them to paint my Kill Team terrain...

IT IS DONE. (Miniature at the front for scale.) ::collapses in a heap::

Current status: Assembling the seemingly endless amounts of terrain from the new Kill Team box.

PAINTS FOR THE PAINT GOD! SHADES FOR THE SHADE THRONE! Games Workshop brought out a new selection of their "Contrast" line of paints in new colours and with new some formulations, very excited to start using them. They've really been a game-changer in terms of giving excellent results but also being really fast to paint. And you can make some sweet effects with them too, by thinning them out and painting them atop other colours, especially metallics.

I decided to mix it up a bit and today completed one of the huge pieces of terrain that I got in the old Kill Team box back in 2019 (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1097). Pretty pleased with how it came out, given I only started it last night! I think the trick is to ignore all the crazy fine detail and just do broad colours, and just pick out a few key details at the end.

That's the barricades done, and with that, all the small bits of the terrain! Next stop, the full size pieces.

How's that for perfect timing, my texture pad and extra-large drybrush from Artis Opus just arrived, exactly when I'm about to start doing the larger Kill Team: Octarius terrain pieces!

Got the scrap walls finished too! I tried doing some lighting effects with the globes, with varying degrees of success. This was a little bit more work than the last terrain bits, but not by too much, and it was mostly mucking around trying to get the globes looking decent.
