From the Desk: Starting Strakhov

Now that Kubla is done, my goal is to get into a happier place with my painting queue. Part of that is catching up on models I promised to paint for other people. The first in that line is Strakhov. I really dig this model, so getting a chance to paint it for my buddy Sean was a no brainer. This post is more of a teaser for him than anything else. I just finished the basic work on the reds. I decided to go with a bit more of the orange-ish tone to reflect his demeanor. I'm planning to paint the armor plates in a blue-ish white tone, and the trim as a black leather color. Unlike most of my projects, I decided to attach him to the base first to make things a bit quicker.
