Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Thermic Plasma Conduits. I've had somewhat of a mix-up with me blogposts, I was supposed to have published this before the Treemen posts but nevermind.
As you can see the conduits are complete.
On the one hand these got done relatively quickly, but also there were times where it felt like I was just investing too much effort into them.
But they look great and I'm really pleased with the results.
I've recently seen people celebrating how little effort effort they put into their terrain to get it to a table ready standard.
That's great and everything, like the difference between tournament and narrative players. No harm in getting stuff done quickly but I think it's better celebrate when you have something worthy of showcase.
Nothing wrong with seeing decent results from minimum effort but better results from a bit more effort is probably higher value content.
Then again, I'm not sure I'll ever use these so who is the fool?
I've still to do the removable power coils for this.
And alongside the Haemotrope Reactor, which was the catalyst for painting them in the first place.
There's some subtle differences, I had all the ends of the conduits with a bit more yellow on, where some rust on top of the pipe join would have matched the reactor better.
But no one will notice except me.
This may well end up on my Armies on Parade board in 2024 - along way off but it gives a reason to have painted these afterall.
