Yea! The first 'big' piece of the army is actually finished! There is more I would have liked to do, but tine's a wastin', and this will have to do for now.
The carapace shell was a great opportunity to test out the freehand on a larger scale. Since I will be doing this on all the vehicles, it would be nice to get an idea of how it will look on something bigger than a regular infantry sized mini!
I had lots of fun using the fluorescents to create the noxious poisons dripping off the metal tentacles and the snout/stinger. In some ways, this was like painting a giant, armored floating Grotesque.
I also enjoyed making the glowing stuff on the spirit siphon.
For kicks, I had some of the poison dripping off the tentacles onto the blasted concrete...
So, with this test complete, I can try out one of the Venoms now! Stay tuned!
