I find that I really enjoy painting larger models. They tend to be both a bit more forgiving technically and easier to work on. Once I “finished” the bloodthirster, I decided to take up a project that had been sitting on my shelf since Christmas of 2013. I’ve already brought the wings into the same color sequence as the body, but forgot to take a picture.
Ihad been holding off on painting my new plastic Screamers for some time (I actually painted them last September and have been searching for pictures I took ever since). I won two boxes of three at the Nor Cal Team Tournament in Stockton, CA at Heroes on Paper in early 2013. A painting award at Olde World Gaming in Elk Grove in mid 2013 netted me another box of three. I love all my metal screamers for their sleek simplicity, but I also love the detail and ability to customize the new plastic kit. I was able to assemble all nine screamers without any two models having the same options; love it!
They say mimicry is the greatest form of compliment. This tutorial is my slight twist on one already published by Element Games. You can find their tutorial linked just below. The color scheme is the same, the general approach is the same, I’ve just made some slight modifications to technique, order, basing and a few other minor things here and there.
