Squaduary Week 3 and Necromunda Accessories

Squaduary is rolling along well here. All that really needs to be done still is touching up all the black (which is, admittedly, the most fiddly and obnoxious part of the whole process), doing the washes and glazes, and a bit more on the bases with some Skrag Brown and then going back over them with some metal drybrushing. I'm hoping to make it over to Seattle at some point in the next couple of days to pick up a couple of nicer brushes, which should make the black a bit less of a slog.
We actually had good natural light today, so I experimented with using it in addition to my light box. Mixed results.
I also got around to painting up the Priority Token and Monster's Lair marker from Necromunda. Pretty simple work on the Token, but I'm happy with how it came out. The shine off the BftBG in the left eye is more pronounced and gem-like in person, but when it is viewed in person, it's pretty much exactly like I envisioned it at the start. The natural light really worked out nicely here, helped make it look absolutely fabulous.

The Sewer Monster is somewhere in-between in terms of how the natural light worked out. The blending on the underside is much more stark here than it usually looks, but otherwise, it's about right. I'm not sure it's done, I might want to run some gloss green ink over some or all of it to make it slimier. It does look good as it is, tho, so I'm just going to leave it for now.


I'm almost done with the penultimate installment of my GSC Codex Review, that should be up in another day or two, and then I'm working on the last post for the Gellerpox Infected which I'll hopefully have up sometime this weekend. Until next time, y'all have a good one, y'hear!

    1. Thanks! I was going for a sort of faded glory effect, with the bling, but also the verdigris.

  4. Natural light has overexposed your GSC but made the tokens look fabulous! I wish I understood photography but I just take hundreds of pictures until one looks right!

    1. Thanks! I think there was too much variation in the GSC shot and the camera couldn't figure out how to set its exposure and stuff like it could when there was just one thing to focus on. I think. I don't really know much about photography either, and I just don't have the energy to take tones of pics and then wade through them trying to find the decent ones.
