As you may know by the news, given the current coronavirus situation, all the country is under lockdown. We all are set at home and general sanitary measures are being taken seriously. We may only leave home for work or groceries and anything else has been cancelled and banned by the Government.
No, I'm not starting a cyberpunk novel, that's actual news nowadays. Well, as much as the situation looks pretty serious, being locked at home should provide some more free time for all of us. At least that's what I thought! However, being locked at home with the two younglings all day long is pretty much time (and energy!!) demanding! And once they are finally in bed, I do have job issues to attend that cannot be postponed. Gasp.
Enough whining. I'm making the effort of painting, even if it's just ten minutes every two days. While I keep working on my large board (ten minutes every two months) I'll be bringing small standalone projects, which I hope will prove less time demanding. Part hobby, part mental health.
I finished this mini quite some time ago, but never posted about it. It was a gift for a friend, part of a Secret Santa initiative from a group. I chose this one:
|Imperial Guard 'Lasgun 3' of yore|
I thought it could make a nice Rogue Trader inspired bounty hunter for his Necromunda games. So I painted the guy in the proper fashion.
|As much RT as I could get|
I had never tried facial paint, so it was a fun step to take, though more difficult than expected. You can easily ruin all the work of the face (and the whole mini) if it doesn't work. However, I think I may repeat (and hopefully improve) it in the future.
|The 'Necro' on the shoulderpad was, of course, mandatory|
|So were the checkers. Checkers Police came soon to check how many checkers I had done|
So here you have him, Ivan Pontburne, bounty hunter. Constantly wandering through the Underhive and hiring his services to the highest bidder. Bodyguard, manhunter, hired muscle, you name it. You want a job done and the pay is fair, you got your man.
This will be all for today, but I'm working on some other small projects like this one, so I hope I can make these quarantine days (or should I say nights) more bearable. No idea of how long will it take, but it will be some 4-6 weeks at the very least for sure (how I'd love to be wrong!). I'll make my best to keep the blog alive and in good shape!
