German Painting Project II

So, Käpt'n Badrukk is coming along. Slowly. His skin is finished, and I'm just getting started on the metals. I find this project very different than anything I've ever done before for the sole reason that I'm painting a model for the sheer pleasure of it.

I guess, in a way, I've done this before. I've always chosen models that I really like, and painted them for my forces, but I've never before just painted a model independent of any army building projects I'm working on. I like it. I feel like I can take my time, and have a theme that's different, or more complex than anything I'd base a force around.

That being said, the thought of redoing a Space Ork army is tempting, and I do have two copies of Assault on Black Reach waiting for me back home. I've always wanted to do a 'punk-based' Ork army. That is, lots of checkers, mohawks, and other such stereotypical punk regalia. Maybe even a banner with a few band names on it. It's completely silly, but I've always wanted to do it. Besides, the Ork models lend to this theme perfectly.

I figure I'll try some of that punk stuff on Käpt'n Badrukk and see how it goes. I'd post some pictures but I couldn't get the focus or lighting right, and so didn't actually take any good photos. You'll just have to wait for the finished product. Perhaps when I get back to Van-City.

Oh, and I pre-ordered War of the Ring in German (Der Ringkrieg). I'm very, very excited for this game, and can't wait until I pick it up on Saturday.
