So I finally managed to find some sort of Zen while painting the penitent engine tonight. Now that I have the body and legs (almost) done here is a sneak peek. I don't even want to mention that even after painting all those purity seals I still found another hidden one on the main body I missed painting. Seriously how many does this thing need?

I gotta say working on this Penitent Engine has got me hitting the wall. I'm use to painting very small things and this monstrosity is killing me. I'm painting small bits at a time, at this point it's been blocked out, washed and I'm now working on the purity seals and other banner objects. I'm not getting the colors I want out of my paints and I feel rushed because it's so large. I'm also thinking too far ahead, i'm trying to plan out the source lighting for the flamer and i'm no where near close to that point. Any inspirational words for me?
Maybe I need a second smaller figure to work on at the same time for when i get frustrated.

So i've finally put this monster of a mini together. some work was done to the legs as I hate the chicken walker look it to, always running forward and never able to turn leg stance it has. So a fake ball joint was added to it and the actual bar the legs slide onto has been bent. Hopefully this will give it a more dynamic pose once it's finished.
I also need to get this off my chest, The other day i was on ebay bidding on some sisters with melta guns, because i'm cheep and hate paying full price. So it was a great deal, half price and then some nob outbids me and is paying MORE than full price from GW for them. Wtf is up with this. I just don't get it. They were unpainted and probably needed some work. Why would someone pay more than retail for them off of ebay. *shakes head*
