I’ve been working as hard as ever on the ship, wanting to get it done by August (when the Spelljammer campaign setting comes out)!
Here’s how it looks so far!
As you can see, I’ve been working on the main body of the ship.
Fun! Fact: I got my speed paint Mega Set but not the Mega Set. Let me explain:
My store came out with all of the individual droppers of paint, which is great. That the Mega Paint Set price is more expensive than if I was to buy each paint individually. There’s really no comparison. So I bought all the individual paints that I didn’t get in my Basic Set. That said, they were out of one color, the white. So I’m missing that one. I have it on order.
Taking that into account, the metal bands around the bottom are gunmetal. I’m planning on painting the rivets a different color. Not sure what yet. Then, just as I painted the deck oak brown, I started painting the underside wood the same color. That has been more than a little time consuming. Mostly because I’m not trying to make mistakes around the metal bands.
Lastly, as you can see, I went back over the crystal engine things with a darker brown. This is actually the darker brown from the speed paints. I wanted to see how it looked on top of brown primer. Personally, I think it looks great. This is the current overall effect:
In particular, I love the contrast and think it looks more like a living tree growing out of the deck of the ship.
I dunno. What do you think? Let me know in the comment section below!
Until next time, Dear Readers…
