Pretty polly

Its been a good day for painting despite some of the usual difficulties.

I finally decided to tackle the Gamezone great eagles I bought a while back. I had initially decided to try and paint them as golden eagles but I couldn't capture the depth of tone in their plumage very well and they looked quite bland. After hanging around semi painted for ages I decided the best fix for the situation was to change the colour scheme to something more like a bald eagle. The extra contrast of the white head and tale has made a big difference and I am really happy with the result.

Here they are with a coat of varnish drying on, I'll get some better pics when I get round to adding the static grass.

Nestled between them there is a second repeater bolt thrower which I also managed to finish up today, told you it was a good day for painting.
