Inspired by a recent @eonsofbattle video I printed and painted 8 heads to practice face painting. Hoping to improve and refine my technique.
~~~~~
I've not leapt forwards by doing this. But I am at a point where I'm now comfortable and consistent with faces.
~~~~~
I also have tried new things. Varied colours and order of operation. Tried oils. Even used a wash as a basecoat. Without the fear that comes from ruining the rest of the mini's paint job it was easy to paint bravely.
~~~~~
I even dusted off my basic CAD skills to create a simple jig incorporating these heads to fit on a painting handle.

The Grim Churchill by @printinggrim with my kitbashed Matilda Russ.
~~~~~
This pair will still need a third to round out the squadron. Do I create a second Matilda Russ or go for something else entirely?

Can't get enough of this duo!

For anyone interested. This photo is all practical effects.

A textured display board. A crudely printed A4 backdrop. The rest of clever framing and cropping.

My Matilda Russ. The first of my Fauxtorian army's tanks. This is still by far my biggest eBay upcycle. It was also the first time I'd printed bits to upgrade an existing kit.
~~~~~
The turret came from a Madtilda Tank by @freshmeatdk on Thingaverse.
~~~~~
The inset Sigilates sponsons by @seanbaker408 on Cults3D remind me of the Malcador. Giving the tank a more streamlined look without compromise on the firepower
~~~~~
I'm still proud of this result. The final look is striking. Unique, yet somehow familiar

Venerated and a Siege Pattern Dreadcrushers by @steelhexminiatures Fantastic printable stand in models.

They bring my Throne Forsaken Legion to just shy of 1500 points and needing a second HQ choice to accompany the Primaris Lieutenant.
~~~~~
So the real question is Primaris Captain or Chaplain?

Earlier this week I felt the need to paint a classic Gretchen. I want to say this model is the one from the second edition box? He seems very familiar.
~~~~~
Painted in what is rapidly becoming my pallete of choice. Vallejo Gory Red, Yellow Ochre, Black, Pale Sand, Leather Brown, Prussian Blue, and Military Green.

I'm in the middle of a few projects. So here's another piece of iconic guard artwork from an old codex. Some more Cadians.
~~~~~
I've been going through the old codexes looking for ideas and inspiration for future projects.
~~~~~
Sometimes to come up with something new, you need to look back at what's been done before. To find opportunities to reimagine.

7 days. 7 Cadians. A week of experimentation, learning, and iteration.
~~~~~
Limited paints. Oil and enamel washes. Mixing my own fleshtones. Blanchitsu style. Vorn palette.
~~~~~
It's been just what I needed to find more motivation to paint and confidence to experiment again.

Time for another #modelworkspace showcase. Time to feel envy and the sudden urge to upgrade your own space again
~~~~~
I have a soft spot for a repurposed bureau. That was my first real hobby space as a kid.
