Shoulder Pads for days yo!

It's an older model but the whole "Come at me Bro!" just screams awesome (to me anyway).

So I finished up the Vlad model. It was a fun side job that took about 2 hours total (with lots of drying times in between).

I am still playing with the red inks over black and greys, I really like how it works. I used the same thing for the blue on the cloak.

The golds are a base of Vallejo Alcohol based metallic - Red gold highlighted up to Vallejo Model Color - Gold.

The base is from Secret Weapons Miniatures. and was done with powders.

After I sealed the model took the pics and uploaded them I noticed the front of the boots. I'm chalking it up to him kicking over some of the rubble on the base and leaving it as it is.....

Long Time No Post......

I can't believe its been almost 3 weeks since I have put my thoughts and pictures on this here internetz. My time has been consumed with work, family, and school. No excuse but hey sometimes life gets in the way of art.....

I had the mis-fortune of getting hit with a pretty nasty virus over the last week and finally had the strength/will to sit down and get some paint on metal. I sat down to finish up the Kharchev diorama and found my hands shaking so bad it would have looked like that lady you see applying makeup going down the road at 70mph.... I turned my shakes into something better and assembled a few models. Then I primed with the airbrush and next thing I knew I was throwing down some inks on a Vlad model I had been wanting to play with for a good long while.

So here is what I was able to accomplish today.

Not too shabby for shaky hands and getting over being sick.
