And were off..

 All the flocking and leaves were applied and the display is completely done.. The underglow on the stepped section is a little hard to see when it's bright. I should have run them a bit farther into the step area..

But anyway .. I'm getting everything ready to go .. as soon as the wife gets home I'll be loading up the Tribeca and heading to NOVA.. if you are going to be down there and run across me stop and say Hi!
I may or may not be making this face .. you never know. But I'll be running around the 40K areas for the Narative and then just walking around in general looking at all the cool stuffs...  I'll be wearing my BMD (Black Maria Designs) work shirts so I'll have my name all big on the front ..

No time... Nova time..

 Well.. NOVA is almost here, I'll be heading down tomorrow so I'm pretty much done everything. I keep looking at them thinking about should I do this or that but I think it's time to just call it done haha..
The Librarian came out looking the way I wanted so I'm pretty happy. For him I wanted to play around with NMM..  Pretty much each model I worked on was using a different technique .. something I've been wanting to do. Mix up my style a bit 8) .. normally I paint the same way and this year I wanted to add something new.

 Hey Greg I added some of that purple glow pm the stone 8)

 The Wraithblade is ready to double chop anyone that challenges him .. for him I was working on some OSL work.

 I worked on some Xtreme highlights on her .. something I usually don't do. I usually blend to the main color and add light highlights. I think she came out ok.. She sadly had three spills and then I had to fix her three times haha..  I was going to do a little more but I pretty much just called it.. I didn't want her to take another tumble.

 The Dusk Wolf skimmer is a muddy weathering .. the first attempt to do heavy weathering but but a lot of rusting and chipping.

 Dreadtobber! .. I had to enter him just for the sake of the contest and I think he's pretty cool..  I think he really has the comical look Orks would have 8)

 And finally the Ork Flyer.. here I went heavy chipping and rust. I wanted to make a display like model. I don't play Orks so this guy will never see the table, he'll just be hanging out on the shelf.

Overall I'm pretty happy with my models.. I think they came out looking good. I'm looking forward to entering them and seeing all the other models entered. This year has already been much nicer.. I'm liking the more chill Nova prep..  I don't feel like I'm losing my mind before I even get there haha.. Hell.. I'm done a day before I have to leave!
