I'm such a slow painter.  It takes me around three hours to do one no-fancy-detail Tactical Marine, so when I explain that the Warjack I'm painting took two hours just to clean up the overspill and apply several layers of the blue basecoat colour (Cygnar Blue Base), you'll at least understand why.

So here we are after another two hours of work.  In fairness you could leave this model as is now and do the base and it'd be battlefield quality.  Well, it might need a little touching up in places, but you get the idea.  The next stages are the Cygnar Blue Highlight, erm, highlights.  This will probably take at least another two hours, followed by picking out all the rivets (and there are a lot of rivets).  I don't mind so much on a Warjack though;  When a force can number as few as four models it is fine to take your time on each one.

I'm hoping to have this model finished over the Easter weekend, and then I can start on my Hormagaunts for my nascent Tyranid army.  Probably going for a bright orange/blue combination on them, though I haven't decided if the blue will be the plates or the flesh yet.
