Just a quick one to say I'm off and running with the Tale of 3 Painters challenge!
These two turned up in the post - I'm lucky that I got the smaller two of the models, but damn, Mike wasn't kidding when he said Hoffman's harness was flimsy! While it's attached here in the picture, it's not glued, so I'll be painting it separately. One of the rules for this challenge was to include "Guild red" somewhere on the model. I've pretty much decided that this will be Hoffman's waistcoat, and the central "core" of the Watcher. I was tempted to make the wings red, but I want to do them a leathery colour (a little skin-like), to give it a slightly creepy feel.
Undercoat next, then we're onto the metallics!
