Media - space wolves
We played another game of Fireteam today, this time with fully-painted miniatures, and I added some (not fully-painted) terrain pieces on the blocked hexes for visual interest! Lots of fun, the mechanics and flow are good, but given the mission we did was the introductory mission, I don't understand how the Necrons can possibly win. I guess I'll need to do some research.

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'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!
