So, I skipped the progression pic and have the finished product.

While the progression pic are interesting I'm not sure they really provide enough additional value after the first set, especially now that I'm going to be starting the more horde parts of the army. Maybe I'll do more when I work on extras. There's always more to work on.

There are 50 Gargoyles in the box here. I don't need all of them, just 20 for the challenge, but since I have them I might as well paint them.

So I have the Mordian Blue is on. I spilled my Ultramarine Blue so I have to try something different. Teclis Blue on the heads. Some of the Gargoyles already have their arms on and I've got the Teclis on the hands and lower arms.

I put some Teclis on some of the wings and bodies while working on the heads before periodic brush cleanings as well.

The completed arms and weapons were my test pieces I think.

I'm thinking about a wash of Badab Black. The new paints seem to behave differently. I'm far enough ahead that I can just strip everything if I can make it work but I'm hoping it doesn't come to that. I can't seem to get the dry-brushing layers right. It could be my brushes, but I don't think so. We'll see soon enough.

It's been a while, life happened to me, I've got some progress to report though.

I love the big dudes. Really love the pose of the July dude with the dakka hands.

That green base, however, is very distracting. :?

Blood Red on the carapace, just need the white and bone on the wing tips and these part will be done.
