131 - The Joy of Painting White
Two weeks into the New Year and I feel like it's time to post something. First of all I hope that everyone had a good Christmas and New Year.
I was hoping to be able to post at least one of the finished Manticores, but I've just not had the enthusiasm to paint a lot. I have managed to get some painting done, and here is a little picture update.
Above are the missiles for both tanks, including the Deathstrike missile. I've been painting these up a little at a time when I have the urge. The main thing that has been slowing me down is the white missile tips. Why oh why did I choose to paint these white?! I've been building the coats of GW Ceramite White up pretty thinly so as to avoid brush strokes, but it just takes sooo long. On one set of the missiles I even undercoated the tips grey using my airbrush and it's still a pain! I might have to buy some airbrush suitable white.
Does anyone have any tips for painting white (that won't take me ages!)? In the meantime I might try and crack on with the weathering now that the transfers are done.
Thanks for reading.
