A quick shot of my own progress on this year's painting challenge. The Chaos Defiler is interesting as a kit build. I've pre-painted everything I can on the sprues before I start assembly. This then requires additional touch ups as assembly proceeds in those paces where I've had to file to fit, or where a little too much glue has been applied.
This is the state of play as of last night, with the legs and basic body assembled.
I'll leave highlighting etc until assembly is almost complete so that I am highlighting those parts that would naturally reflect light.
There will also be quite a bit of detailing to be done at that stage as well.
