After spending most of my hobby time putting the final touches on my entry for Red Corps special character competition I had some free time this weekend to put some paint on my first test model and continue painting the interior of the Land Raider Crusader. The test model took me a little longer than I wanted, but I was deciding which colors to use as I was painting him. I'm hoping the next 25 will not take as much.
The base now only needs a couple of weeds or dying grass sprouting from the edges of the rock and I think I can call him complete. One of the things I don't like about him is the Red Scorpions chapter symbol. I just can't get the detail to look quite right. Has anybody else had a similar problem? What did you do to ensure your painting gave justice to the great detail on the FW shoulder pads?
Having said that, I had no problem getting the details on the left shoulder "Crux Terminatus". I really liked how this turned out. Well now that I have finished my test model, hopefully I'll be able to start cranking them out a little bit faster. As always please let me know what you think,your critiques are highly welcomed.
