The Founding of a Chapter; Day 1, painting a tank.
So I got off work and decided to take it easy for a few hours. I played some video games and just surfed the web for a while. Then I checked my blog, thus reminding me I was supposed to post today (wednesday, seeing as it will be after midnight by the time I hit post). So I grabbed some of my "finished" assembled products, went outside and grabbed some bug repellent, (not a nid joke, the bugs were biting bad tonight) and my primer and sprayed away.
After some very irritating bites and some detailed priming, I had three razor backs and my deathcompany primed. I feel like one of those cooking shows. I skipped the assembly steps and went straight to the "this is what the final product looks like". I'll try and remember some in progress pictures for some, but most are going to be painting and such.
Speaking of which, I took the old rhino I had gotten off of ebay and decided to do my test painting on it. DISCLAIMER! I have never painted a tank before in my life. It took me many a months to learn how to paint power armor. I learned to paint the organic look of Tyranids, this is arse backwards painting to me.
So Day 1 report doesn't bring much actually done, but it has been a learning experience. And this update schedule has already helped keep me working. I may just get things done yet.
The back of my mind keeps going "There are no biomorphs! THERE ARE NO BIOMORPHS!!" I just keep telling myself it is like painting all carapace.
Any Tread-heads out there have any pointers?
