These old metal classics will always bring up fond memories. While the casts were getting a bit rough due to age by this point, these were still interesting to paint.
I suppose it also reminds me of finding my way early on in my miniature painting. Some of the first non Blood Bowl GW minis I painted were the old Grey Knights.
Those figures back in the day were my first attempts at non-metallic metals. Yes, there was a time when I tried to use metallic paint. :-) However, that was still in the context of sky earth.
I may do some experiments with the Valleko Metallic medium. Perhaps I will mix that in with my usual SE-NMM colors and see what happens!!!
That could be quite interesting. I am hoping to do a lot of experimentation in the second half of this year. Have to get through a bunch of work first!
And I guess I can make it official. I will be at Reapercon this year! Yes indeed! It does not conflict with Adepticon, so the good folks from out west have decreed that I should come out there ind infect them with my madness!
Further details to come!
