Painting Update: Second Verse, Same as the First – Dropship and Wizard

Dear Readers, I am going to slog my way through these two miniatures if it kills me. Especially the Elven Wizard.

I mean it.

So, first, the bane of my existence, the dropship.

When I started today, there were a few places where the paint primer didn’t stick, or I missed, so I went over them again.

Then I scraped off some primer by accident.

Then I went over it again.

Then I scraped it again.

The cycle is killing me.

I mean, LOOK AT THIS!!!


It’s fine. I’m fine. It’s just…frustrating.

So I am attaching the landing gear. Then I will re-re-reprime the model. Sheesh.

I’ll redo the primer job tomorrow.

Then there is this beauty:

I forgot to take the step by step pictures, but I colored her hair, filled in the face that wasn’t properly painted, got the staff done, then mixed the blue and red tone to make a cool plumb that I am using for her magic.

After that, I’ll do the wash on her and then do the base.

I know this is probably getting a little old, but I am trying to finish the Wizard so I can work on my next commission, a human/not-human-but-really-a-goliath barbarian named Gundar. I believe he is modeled after a cartoon character. The model is actually a copy of the first miniature that I painted and posted on this blog! I’ll be using very similar paint schemes. It’ll turn out better than my first one.

No words yet on the speedpaints, BTW. It’s also frustrating. I’m thinking that I will just order them direct from Army Painter and I’ll likely get it quicker from mail service than if I wait for my local store to get it. Apparently, their distributors don’t even have them yet.

Yeah, I know.

Well, that’s it for me today. I hope you enjoyed this edition of Groundhog’s Day: Painting Minis Edition. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below!

Until next time, Dear Readers…
