117th Bastion Regiment In 2020, I was really struggling with my desire/ability to paint. I just couldn't master any motivation. I'm not the kind of person who paints just to paint. I need a goal - like getting my force ready for an upcoming game. I wasn't playing much of anything during the pandemic and I went months without even going into my painting room. I reached out to my friend Ross Hines and asked him to give me an assignment, to pick a faction for me to paint. My thought was I'd take his 'homework' and do some serious painting over that weekend. Did I mention that Ross is an art teacher...? 🙂 He's also STUPID talented when it comes to art, designing CAV lists, and kicking my a** on the tabletop battlefield. He assigned me to paint some Malvernis models. I'd watched some tutorials from an awesome Twitch streamer - Next Level Painting about how to paint star fields. And here we are... Painting these models got me out of my doldrums and back into painting as something I enjoy. I need to make an actual playable force out of these models. I must own at least a dozen more Banshees. That's probably not enough. 🙂 CavBoss liked my paint scheme enough he assigned it to the 117th Bastion Regiment - a fine compliment indeed.
