One more Star Weaver crew was done, but the star of this post is the Jetbike. Set on a sphere magnet, like the Star Weavers, the jetbike is looking nimble and floaty. The underslung weapon and the riders aren’t glued on.

The last of the Star Weavers are done. I haven’t done enough of the crew to man all of them yet, so I’ll take another set of group pics when they’re done. I’m very impressed with the sphere magnets and the joints they fit into. I would have thought the vehicles would be swerving around as they’re moved, but the friction holds them pretty well together.

The stencil I used for most of the diamonds started to break apart so I got another one and I think it made it easier to keep the diamonds looking like diamonds on the rounded surface.

Progress on the Harlequins is slow but still going. The third Star Weaver is now done. I’m particularly proud that I’ve managed to keep the diamonds in mostly the same spots as previous ones and the colour transition is nice and smooth.

The second Star Weaver is done with a couple more crewmates. I brightened the orange on the diamonds a bit from the first one and I think I like it more. I’ve updated the old one to be brighter too.

While putting together the next batch of Space Marines to paint, I painted up a Solitaire. He’s going to be one of the leaders so I put in more diamonds across the piece.

I painted the orange in first so I can get the proper transitions before painting in the black diamonds. There was some diamonds added to the cloak so it looks like his trail is melding in with the cloth. Similar to the Shadowseer, I put diamonds on the hood, fading to the black.

The wraithbone masonry he’s vaulting over is a bit of a treat. I made sure to add bright highlights all along the runes, especially in the shade so it looks polished. Quite the dynamic looking mini, very striking when you have the bright diamonds and costuming that we all love with the Harlequins.

While I am building the next batch of White Scars, I am going to be painting some Harlequins so I have some colour to show of intermittently . I have been tasked with painting many diamonds for this army. It came built and magnetized, very well done, very clean. I hope I can do the army justice.

First model is a Star Weaver and its 2 magnetized passengers. Everyone gets orange diamonds, white masks, bronze armour bits, and blue accents pieces like guns, gems, and studs. The base is a simple wraithbone theme. I’m looking to see if the weapons are a good colour to keep and if coupled with blue gems are enough to balance the scheme. This is going to be a very visually striking army once they’re all done.
