After a month of solid work dedicated to painting Mortarion he is finally finished. I can say without a doubt that every ounce of my skills went into this model. This was also an incredibly fun model to paint. It was a great break from churning out squads of guardsmen and tanks. Most of the time I am concerned about pushing models out in a relatively quick manner because guardsmen are expendable, but it was very refreshing being able to take all of the time I needed in order to make this model look perfect.

I played my first game of Age of Sigmar. When the rules were release I poured over them as well as the war-scrolls, but I wanted to reserve any real judgement until I played a game. Upon an initial assessment, this game is fun.

I have started working on painting Mortarion and I wanted to give you all an update.
The original body, the one with too much mold release agent, has been acting as an excellent test piece. The bone white and gold have turned out magnificently! When I work the mud splatter on the actual model things are likely going to be toned back a bit. I don't normally do this kind of effect and I went a bit overboard.
Also it appears that spraying a model with dull coat helps primer bind to a model. This leg was particularly shiny, and I was worried that this would be a troublesome spot. After spraying the model with dull coat, followed by primer, I have had no issues with paint flaking.
I have begun work on my main Mortarion model and I am incredibly excited about this project. Stay tuned for more updates!
