After getting my dark elves out the other day and the level of interest I have maintained in the cult of the possessed I have come to the conclusion that it must be 40k that is the root of my mojo problems and general lack of interest in painting.
Its about time I had a break from 40k, focused on it for about 5 years (maybe more) admittedly I have worked on Flames of War on and off during that period too. I intend to fix this and what better way than to update my Dark elves.
I'm not going the whole hog and completely repainting them, as I like the scheme as it is. However I do intend to give them a new paler skin tone, touch up some areas/add some extra highlights and also add some snow to their bases.
So to kick it off I have made the rather tough decision to remove the old GS work a replace it all, putting my improved sculpting skills and tools to use, here is where she at now:
|The Old version as it looked, this morning|
Pretty pleased with her, shows how much my sculpting skills have improved since the original version with its badly push molded head and rough armour. I looked at the new plastic sorceress for ideas hence why she now has an exposed stomach :)
Also welcome to new followers Ed and quidamcorvus thanks for the support guys :)
As ever let me know what you think guys
