Leading the Charge - Kroot Shaper


Even though the blog has been quite quiet over the past few days I have been busy. Yesterday I didn't get much painting done as I had other things to do during the day. Luckily though I had some time in the afternoon and evening to paint up the first of two kroot shapers. I started at 3:30pm and finished him at 9:00pm. I did have breaks in between though so it probably took me about 4 or 4.5 hours to paint him. I really like this model compared to the other Shaper, mainly because he carries a pulse rifle, just my preference of weapon :). I did take some WIP images as well of the first few steps but then after that I was kind of pushed for time so I got my head down and finished him off. I will show the WIPs of him first then the fully painted pics. Here he is:

Stage 1 - Applying base layers

Stage two - Re-applying darker base layers

And now the fully painted version:

I will post the group shots of what I have done so far later on today, probably some time in the afternoon. But between now and then it is time to paint the last Krootox. Bye for now.
