Tale of Many Gamers: Like a Shooting Star(weaver)
I know it's not the end of the month, but I got a head of steam and a chock load of motivation and piled it into this here Starweaver. It was what I was working on over the Bank Holiday weekend, and the last weekend saw me finish up the crew, gun and base to put this one to bed.
This model gave me a chance to get out the airbrush and give it a go with laying out a nice solid base coat on these large flat panels along with trying to highlight it at the same time. I'm personally quite pleased with the first attempt, and will look to do something similar when it comes to the Voidweaver.
As you can see, I also threw a little freehand into this. The diamonds were drawn on with a pencil and a post-it note and then carefully filled in with my patented unsteady hands. One interesting side affect is the way the two colours play with your eyes a little, kind of fitting for the Harlequins and their shimmering shenanigans.
Here is the family photo, and it is really starting to look like an army now. All that is left in this batch are the second Shadoweer and Death Jester, the Skyweavers and the Voidweaver. After that I may buy another box of Skyweavers to round out three formations, but that is in the future. For now, I am going to put the Harlequins to one side and work at the backlog of my Eldar to try and get another unit ready to hand in at the end of the month.
