Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Psychophage. When I realised the Deathwing were not achievable there was genuine comfort in not having to fit all the WiP posts before the end of the hobby season.

Now I do the Psychophage and suddenly I'm going to miss that deadline.

Anyway, all bone highlights are done and more Bloodletter Glaze on the abdomen, with some additional definition.

Still no idea about the smoke plume.

First set of chitin highlights.

Suddenly I remember how tedious this is.

It's such a strange set of emotions - satisfaction for the progress but genuine boredom.

It does help to do it in sections though, to identify edge striations, middle ones, then the middle between those and then fill in all the other 'tweens'. It makes it easier as the first set of middle tend to be longer and so deciding on sizes becomes easier the more you go through it.

Then the second set of highlights is easier still, because you only have to match what's there.

Naturally you try to be smaller, inside the previous mark but I probably cover far too much of the previous stroke than I should.

Not that I mind - it's all looking pretty standard for my nids nowadays.

So, although I feel a little exhausted with all the turquoise the results are exactly on point. Black talons next, tentacles and the smoke plume...

And the decision is going to be yellow! Didn't see that one coming did you?!
