First Blood

Like most hobbyists know using sharp knives tend to lead into small – but nasty – cuts every now and then. Tonight I draw first blood scratching off mold lines from my upcoming Plague Marines.

Back in 1977 Marvel Comics published a special KISS comic in full colour, presenting the band as superheroes. Blood from each band member was drawn by a nurse and poured into the vats of red ink. That ink was then used in the print of said comic.

Should I do the same? I could poor a little of my blood into the paint I am going to use to paint the red eyes. Well, I probably should not. But you have to agree with that it would be pretty cool?

I admit progress has been somewhat slow but the two squads should be modelled in a day or so, not counting the shoulder pads which have yet to arrive.
