Year of puns. Ap(e)ril. 40K Jokaero Weaponsmith

So here is my Entry for Ap(e)ril.

"Forget 'Phone home'. Eat digital lazers, scum bag!"

One fun thing about my year of puns is not only am I painting a wide variety of stuff I have never painted before, I am also being more experimental in my actual painting.

With the exception of the metallics and eyes this fella was just ink washes over a white under coat. Being an Oldskool painter I usually go for more vibrant, pop-out colours.

The inks have given this fella a more 'washed out', desaturated look then the rest of my miniatures. This is not a bad thing as it certainly marks him out.

I am not sure I am 100% happy with the effect but it is certainly something I am happy to experiment with some more.

I wish I had taken more time to 'fine line' the metallic elements of the figure but I was dipping in and out of this fella (pun intended) while marking some particularly boring English books so he was a welcome distraction!

Being of a certain age I cannot help but think of E.T. whenever I look at this fella's out stretched fingers.
