The Vessel of Judgement is finished finally. 3 and a half weeks later. I actually finished it up early Wednesday morning before heading into work, putting the chains on to the Zealot, and did a final sealing that evening before heading up to Rook’s. I am really happy with how this came out, and I wanted this post to be the finished vessel – hence why it is so late.
Welcome to the first installment of Painting to the People. This week, I will be showing the work that I have been doing on my Vessel of Judgement.
I am pretty happy with how this piece is turning out. The biggest problem I have run into? I didn’t have any bright silver. I have ordered some, and it should be showing up at my FLGS on Thursday, so I can finish the highlights of silver.
So while this week was hell on my schedule (for a variety of reasons – some health related, some career related), I actually got a lot done. I finished up the wheels of the Vessel, the Zealot pulling it, his chains and the Attendant Priest on the vessel itself. The vessel itself still needs a lot of work – the initial pass of gold was all I finished up – but I am hoping to have it ready for the final touch of bright silver dry brush by Thursday. That is pretty ambitious – we will see if I can make it or not.
I am really happy with how this Zealot turned out – this was my first attempt at doing any sort of scarring, and I felt it came out really well. I am still so new to painting that any victory feels like a win for me.
That is it for this week. I will hopefully have a finished Vessel for next week, and will have started on my next set of models. Until then, keep those brushes moving!
