Heavy Bolter Servitor - finished

Just in time for some holiday purging! I'm having great fun experimenting with airbrushing and weathering lately which is a lot different from my usual neat & clean style. I should try airbrushing a vehicle one of these days. it will be make nice holiday project.

All in a day's work...

After a long absence I did the impossible and managed to paint (almost) 4 minis in a day!

The first mini is a Tau Battlesuit which I only bought as an excuse to try airbrushing and weathering. I was so tired of seing shiny Tau that I simply had to paint that mini. War is hell even for the "good" guys of 40k and I wanted this mini to portray that. It's a shame the Battlesuit kit has such a poor fit otherwise I might be tempted to start a Farsight Enclave army. I guess I'll have to try the new Forge World Battlesuits to see if they're any better. This also means that if anyone has bought FW Battlesuits any information concerning how the kits go together will be greatly appreciated. On to the pics:

The second mini is (rather obviously) the Heavy Bolter Servitor I've been working on lately. Using an airbrush meant that I could do the majority of the work on all minis easily. Here's how it stands so far:

Heavy Bolter Servitor - update

I made some changes to the Servitor to stop it from looking too plain. As I'm writting this the undercoat is drying and unless I spot any greenstuffing mistakes, painting will comence soon!

Pigs can't fly...

.. but guns can roll!

Another addition to my inquisitorial retinue and the next in my series of tracked servitors, this one is all about simplicity so it's significantly smaller and simpler than the plasma cannon servitor. The idea is that the bigger servitor is somehow controling the smaller ones. This theme will eventually run through the whole inquisitorial retinue where the Inquisitor will comand some of his servants which will in turn comand robotic machines. A Hierophant will be accompanied by a Servo Skull with auspex and extra sensors, a Scribe will be accompanied by a Scribe Skull and the large Plasma Cannon Servitor will be accompanied by two smaller ones. In another note all this reminds me that I should photograph the whole of the retinue as it stands so far and make a post about it. I promise I'll stop being lazy and do it soon. In the meantime take a look at the wip pics and tell me what you think.

Commissar - finished!

After a long hiatus it's finally finished! Painting the flesh and especially the face was a chalenge as I had to be carefull not to get any paint on the adjacent areas but in the end it turned out ok I think. Eyes still give me a headache but I guess it's up to practice. I even tried using a magnifying lens but it didn't seem to make things easier in any way. I need all your last minute suggestions and ideas for touch-ups before varnishing so... have at it!
