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. 😛

Progress has been slow, but I finished the faces of the next four of my squad of Scions tonight and I am pretty damned happy with how good they look!

Okay I lied, I COULD be bothered breaking out the airbrush for one single miniature. She's all finished now! Next stop, the other thirteen members of the squad. 😅

I've finished off the test model for my new Scion squad, and I am absolutely STOKED at how well she came out, in particular her face and eyes! She's not FULLY finished yet, I still need to apply varnish and then put the snow sprinkles and winter bushes on the base (oops, and also paint the lens on the thing beside her head which I didn't notice I hadn't painted until I was looking at it just now), but I can't be bothered pulling out the airbrush and setting it up and cleaning it out again for just one single miniature. I'd signed up to Duncan Rhodes' Painting Academy (https://www.duncanrhodes.com) a couple of months ago, the videos are fantastic and clear and extremely well-produced, and I used his technique and colours for the face in particular. It's all of £4/month and there's a ton of videos and more added weekly.

There we go, the entire all-women squad of Scions is finished! Super-happy with my conversions here, next stop is to do a full zenithal base coat with the airbrush (full black undercoat followed by white sprayed from the just top 45 degrees or so of the miniature so it's highlighted where light would naturally fall).

The last box of five Scions I need for my all-women squad just arrived, and I may have slipped and also ordered a box of Battle Sisters as well. 😜

Woo, the first three members of my all-women Astra Militarum Scions squad are assembled!

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.

My Dreadnaught got, uh, slightly swarmed. (We lost due to not paying enough attention to objectives, though we also didn't actually finish all the turns before my teammate had to get back home so technically it could have gone either way.)warhammer 40k darkroom gaming games workshop necrons tyranids seven hills chaos space marines space marines
