Some work-in-progress Harlequins.

I have also started to assemble some Skyweaver Jetbikes.

Together with a converted Viper. I’ve had the viper since it was first released (it was something of an impulse pre-order). Originally I was going to convert it into Nuadu Fireheart (an old Saim-Hann character) although it never happened and the model has languished in a box ever since. Maybe the Harlequin release will finally provide me with the motivation I need to actually do something with this model.

    Your work on the diamond patterns is superb. Did you do it the way GW suggested, with a grid you fill in? If so did you brush the grid or use a micron pen or something? I’ve tried to start mine but keep kinda messing it up.

      I painted a grid first and then filled in the shapes. I used a 3/0 paintbrush and thinned black paint for the grid.

      I will go into more detail in a future post but essentially I divided the sleeve/leg into quarters with straight lines running down the front, back and each side. I then filled the space between the lines with columns of crosses. This provided a guide for the placement of the crosses and ensured that they met up at the other side. I only found this out through trial and error. The first couple of Harlequins were painted without the vertical lines and they were much harder to do.

    Agree with Jarrett…wow on those diamonds. So clean and crisp!

    Thanks, guys. The finished models are now up on the blog.
