After I finished Epic Thagrosh I took a bit of break from miniature painting. I’m not sure if it was the culmination of the burnout I had been feeling or the stomach virus I had caught but I pretty much put down the brush about a month or so ago. It wasn’t until just a couple nights ago that I finally sat back down with Typhon to try and get back into the swing of things.
Last time I worked on Typhon I had applied the initial wash to his skin but I hadn’t gotten any further. But when I sat down to try to smooth out the base coat, before I knew it I had flown through a majority of the layering and the clock was telling me it was an hour past when I should have gone to bed.
The following night I did some initial work on all of the carapace areas. I still have a lot of detailing and more highlighting to do on the skin though. The mouths also need a ton of work but overall things are progressing rapidly. Before long I should be able to seal and base this multi-headed monstrosity.
I haven’t decided what I’m going to paint after Typhon. Neither the Fire of Salvation nor the Blessing of Vengeance have been touched in nearly six months. I just haven’t been able to bring myself back to painting warjacks since then. Half of me really wants to get them finished and off my workbench but the other half remembers how un-fun jacks are to paint. Painting beasts is so much more fun.
I’m also considering switching to Rorsch & Brine. I basecoated Brine’s skin a while ago but he he’s virtually unstarted. Rorsch is just primed but if I paint him I’ll probably paint my Bone Grinders at the same time just to make sure that all of my Farrow have a consistently colored hide. There’s also a Stannis Brocker that has been in-progress for a while now that I wouldn’t mind working on either.
That’s just my models that are in progress, too. One of these days I should make a list of my unstarted models to try and prioritize them. Damn figmentia!

You can do it! Don’t give up!
The Typhon looks great btw, really nice contrast in colors on the skin.
Looking sweet. I love the colours on Typhon…and I wish I’d thought to tilt Blessing like that; he’s so hunched over, even for a Revenger
Thanks, guys. I’m hoping to finish Typhon up early July then move on to something else.
