I suspect I'm going to be held back by all the videogame releases this month, so my threat's fairly conservative: finish the detail work on those Raptors, and assemble a Knight Paladin.

Okay, the Knight kit is surprisingly easy to assemble, so I'll try to get it basecoated as well.
 
Since the Nightlords are basically the Batman Legion (and the canon traitor knight houses are boring), it's been suggested that green and purple, traditional comic-book badguy colours, would work for their knightly allies. That also means I can do up pilot heraldry based on bat-villains.

None of the armour plates are glued on, so I can paint the internals separately and do any free-hand work on the plates separately.

An update on my own project. I have my Flash Gitz Nobz pretty much finished, except they need bigger bases. I need to buy some large metal washers to glue onto the 28mm bases to make them 32mm instead, and then go to work on finishing the unit off. 

 

As for the rest of my Nobz, (all 32 of them) I'm experimenting with the idea of a couple of  Nob Klowns units. I still have to figure out how to make red noses and wigs for them, but they have light blue face paint so far, and I'm about to start on the big smiley lips, then some brightly coloured stripey trousers and stuff, ( a bit like my freeboota pirate Orks.) They'll look great with my Mad 'Atter Warboss.

(Apologies MDG I posted this in the wrong thread earlier!)

I'm not sure if they remind me of The Joker, a bunch of Gremlins, Amadeaus, Trolls or maybe Donald Trump, but I kinda like the cotton wool bud top wigs. Some of the Ork faces work better with clown paint than others though.

Yeah, this is awesome in a twisted way. I expect you'll get some opponents who will totally freak out when these guys hit the table. (Coulrophobia anyone?) And it definitely fits the description Killer Clowns from Outer Space!

 

Are you going to color the hair squigs orange somehow?

Thanks MGD. I was looking for something suitably inspirational in order to get me to attack my nobz, and clowns seemed to fit the bill perfectly. In Hindsight, I may have wanted to pick specific heads that work well with the theme, but I still may mix and match some. I've loads of heads in my bitz box. I am really happy with how the hair turned out, and I'm unsure whether to leave it a ghostly spooky white, or whether to go for a Ronny McDonald Orange. I might test it first on a spare head to make sure the paint sticks to the cotton wool. I've used cotton wool before for smoking barrels, exhuasts ect and it tends to clog together with paint, but maybe a light wash will work.

Nearly done, just need some final touch ups. The orange wash worked fine on the hair, but it lost its fluffinessklowns4_zpsxuhnjhv0.jpg?t=1489746996klowns3_zps3jrxp9ge.jpg?t=1489747000klowns2_zpsbx5xq7dy.jpg?t=1489747000klowns1_zpsvs3oxmmb.jpg?t=1489747000

I think the orange came out okay. Might've been a better result if you dyed your cotton before attaching it, but hindsight is 20/20.

You're going to have to do a blob of GS for the noses. I don't think it will look good if you just paint a red circle on their faces.

I tried the red blob and didn't look good.

Noses might look better when painted red if you do them as small miliput balls.

Thanks for all the good nose suggestions . My wife came up with a wonderful suggestion which solved the problem. I was scrummaging around in the kitchen looking for small round seeds or something like that when she suggested tacking pins like a dressmaker would use. Just snip off the pin and away you go. I had enough of them of the right colour too so no painting required, just a spot of super glue to fix into place.

Well, the cars are now weathered and on display.

All that's left is the rear edge of the module and the backdrop. Hopefully that'll be done before the end of the month. :)
