To better paint Enkomi, I left the model unassembled, though I did spend an hour cleaning up flash, and mould lines, and making repairs.
Here you can see I finished priming, base coating, and a first highlight.
Next came additional highlighting and shading, and picking out the detail.
That day turned into a cluster F***
No sooner had I finished that portion of Enkomi.... then immediately lost his head. It took an hour to find, and when I was trying to take photos, he just wouldn't stay together. This, followed by a complete horde of computer problems and other technical issues made for a very frustrating day.
Oh. Did I mention he fell apart? Here's a picture of his wrist separating...and the bent spine on his Crozius from falling apart and falling to the floor. He's nearly complete, though I have plans to do more highlighting, and now repair the chips.
As I still hadn't decided on how I would be basing this army when I was working on him, I didn't do anything with the base yet. More on that later.
Painting shouldn't be this stressful...
