German Painting Project

So for the first time in a long while I've gotten something to paint. Well... I had some Warmachine stuff to paint that I brought with me; but I want a project that I'm not doing for an army; instead something I just want to paint independent of anything else. So I bought Kap'n Badrukk, for the Ork faction of Warhammer 40,000. At least I hope that's what he's called in English. I bought him from a German Games Workshop and I threw out the multi-lingual packaging.

In other news they opened a Games Workshop in Freiburg on the 2nd of February. I read about it in a German issue of White Dwarf I bought in Stuttgart. It's pretty cool. It's small. It's about the size of the Richmond Games Workshop in British Columbia, though more rectangular as opposed to square.

I'm pumped about this fig. I'm gonna take my time and chip away at the painting on him. This is because the end of the school semester here has me stressed, and I remembered how relaxed I get when I paint, and even how much thinking I get done while doing it. It's been 'bout six months since I have painted, so why not give this a shot? I have him built, and based. I'll wait while the gluecoat dries on the sand then prime him. I'll let you know how it goes by posting pictures, and so forth.

I'll be using P3 paints primarily, because that's all I have with me, and they're still my current favorites. However I'll be using some of the Citadel Washes because as you may have read before I'm also quite fond of them. I'll be using P3 brushes, and I wont be doing any conversion work on the figure.
