Just had a complete FAIL tonight.
My own silly fault. here's what happened.
I painted a Kroot. For a freind. You remember, one of those four I built last time?
Anyway I offered to paint them as my freind was struggling for a scheme and I had a few Ideas.
The intention was to create a scheme that could be used for a whole unit, that would go on quite quickly, be fairly individual and encourage him to use one of his new toys, an airbrush.
I did a test fig this evening. two hours start to finish, lots of airbrush, notes taken, and step by step pictures.
it's the step by step pictures where the word FAIL comes into play. you see I played a game this weekend (gasp) and during the game, I changed the white balance and exposure settings on my camera.
yes, dear bloggers, you know what i did next; I forgot to change them back.
or even check them. so my step by step pics, are, well garbage. and orange.
so all I have to offer are these final shots, once I realised the error of my ways. and even these are a bit dark, as they were taken in haste.
so that was my evening. I'll try and get some "client feedback" tomorrow :) and then I've got three more on the bench, so maybe I'll get the tutorial right eh?
in other news, I'm working on getting up a batrep for the last game, and I've got a bunch of GK models i need to paint, including a Land Raider I magnetised, whcih will probarbly be the largest single vehicle i've ever painted.
busy busy busy.
