Armorcast Warhound #1 - 30

It's not because I had some holidays that I wont work on the warhound.

Legs are done for now.
Hunting group, trophies checkered leg and Princeps symbol are painted.

I'll work on the metallics later.

Right now I'm working on the uper body.

I don't know if I'll keep it clean or add some symbols.

Many news since last post.

First, I finished the icons.
There's a unicorn on a blue circle on the right leg, ande a red lightning and a yellow ace of spades on the left leg. 

I made the first red highlights, more to come. 

And the shield generator paint was modified. 

And the Base is painted, but not finished.

How did I get the checkered leg ?

First, you have to apply masking tape on the leg, even where you need the checkered paint.

First, you have to trace all the vertical lines.

It's easier when the horizontal ones aren't done yet, because you need to place all these lines around the leg.
And they aren't parallel to each other.
Because the base is larger than the top.
It's a bit tricky but once you get it, it's easy to do.

Good news : horizontal lines are parallel to each others. ;-)

Now all the lines are on the aera you need to be checkered, you need to put some pencil to see the checks.

The penciled squares will be removed and painted in the new color.

After using some sharp tool to cut the squares that have to be removed, you can see the checkred aera take place.

Red undercoat, et voilĂ ...

Grey undercoat ? check.
White undercoat ? check.
Black undercoat ? check.

Lets add some masking tape and get the warhound ready for the red undercoat.

Then everything will be ok for the real painting time.

Now I'm back on tracks, the second color is applied.

I'll use the same color sheme, like the one I used for my previous knights.

Next color will be black. and then... RED.

Seems my last week post disappeared in the warp...

Last week, i was finally done with the greenstuff on all the warhound parts.

Or so did I think...
I undercoated some parts and, when it dried, I discovered a bunch of tiny holes and flash lines I didn't see before.
[Cries out loud]

I took some minis plastic filler and used to fill all the holes in could see now.

I'll go back to bases colors when I'm done with the holes filling stuff for the second time...
