First note is progress on Lylyth3. Got the various pieces assembled, primed, and getting ready to start painting. I actually primed different parts black and white. Lylyth herself and the central bar of the sled are both primed white since they have a lot of non-metal parts. The sled itself was a no-brainer, but the elk was sort of a trade off that I decided to go with black for. It's weird to be tackling yet another huge based model and not have it feel like nearly as much of a daunting task. I'm planning to use the airbrush to lay down a metallic base coat and then go in and shade plates appropriately.
Second note here is that I've been experimenting with using a piece of primed plasticard as a secondary palette. So far I'm liking having it handy. It's easy to do quick thinning and mixing of paints. This combination of plasticard palette and mini-well ceramic palette is really suiting my needs. I'm finding myself using it more and more. Also here you can see the double-ended brush, which is also getting more and more usage for two-brush blending.
And that's really all I've got to report for the weekend, however I'm off tomorrow and plan to do a bunch of painting once I finish my home improvement project.
