First Attempt at Freehand
Well, other than a few chapter markings on marines and some Eldar runes, I’ve never tried to freehand an entire design before. Anyway, Miniwargaming.com forum is running an intimidation challenge, so I took the plunge. I must say, I’m rather pleased with how this turned out. It’s much better than I had expected it would be and gives me some confidence in trying this on some actual models.
I painted this on a section of clear plastic from a CD case. Why? Well, I work woth computers, so I always have spare, slightly damaged CD cases around. Seconfly, I didn’t want to screw up one of my models with my first attempt. Thirdly, I have a plan for something to use this for in the future which required it to be painted on a transluscent surface.
Anyway, here’s the model that I based the picture on, from WD 364, two WIP shots and the finished product.
