The first round of the Lead Painter’s League 13 has finished, and here is my entry: I called it “It came from the Smog, take 1”, had to keep it short because of the 30 character limit to the title. Anyway, “Vampires in the mist” had more of a jungle vibe to it. Since the […]Read More LPL13 round 1: It Came from the Smog, Take 1!
From WizKids’ line of Nolzur’s Marvellous Miniatures comes the “Treant”, which is D&D-speak for Ent, or Treeman if you are more familar with Warhammer. I find this mini looks angry and scary, not like a benevolent living tree shepherd at all. A malevolent one, on the other hand, fits the bill precicely. And seeing as […]Read More Torchwood the Furious
From the first Bones kickstarter, or rather, a purchase I made soon after since I did not add on the “Fire Giant Warriors” subset. As I have written earlier, I am grinding through getting the older versions of the Giants painted, as the newer versions are both 1) better detailed, and 2) a lot larger. […]Read More Bones 1: Fire Giant Bodyguard
For the Age of Sigmar Chaos Nurgle army. The Maggotkin Lord of Plagues. Skin was done in pale blue, Citadel Druuchi Violet Shade and Citadel Athonian Camoshade at the same time. The armour is painted in much the same way as the Heartbreaker plague warriors. This establishes the style of the mortal part of the […]Read More Maggotkin of Nurgle: The Lord of Plagues
From the fourth Bones kickstarter (no, I have not received my shipment yet, not even a shipping notice). This minis was sold online and given as a freebie if you ordered for more than USD 40 from the Reaper site in February this year. When I ordered it I was not aware that this mini […]Read More Bones Black: The Rock Troll
At long last, the other half of the Kill Team: Rogue Trader box: The actual Rogue Trader and her retinue. I went for a House Atreides look to the uniforms (Green with red and gold trim, inspired by the production design of the 1984 David Lynch Dune movie, which I am sure also has […]Read More Kill Team Rogue Trader: The Elucidian Starstriders
I have for the longest time been thinking on how to paint these. I knew I did not want to do them all in the official caucasian skin, orange hair that is so prevalent. Options for their look included a Dia de los Muertos or Calaveras de Azucar-style, Pictish blue daub, Voodoo-shadowman-black with painted skeleton on […]Read More Warhammer Underwear: The Chosen Axes
WizKids make both Nolur’s Marvelous and Pathfinder Deep Cuts miniatures, both similar in style, scale and the primer. These, however, were clear transparent with just their integral bases primed light grey. I started by painting them all over with Army painter Anti-Shine Matte varnish. Then I gave them a wash of Citadel Casandora Yellow […]Read More Deep Cuts Hell Hounds
Three minis that just have been standing around unpainted for some time. This is an extra pair of Skeletons I ordered with the first Bones Kickstarter, that I originally has slated for adding to the base of the Colossal Skeleton back when I was thinking along the lines of making that one into a Kings […]Read More Simple Bones Skeletons
My arms are acting up again. (Curse you, painfully inflamed carpal tunnel ligament-thingies!) So I will have to put painting a bit on the back burner for the immediate future until the pain clears up again. Hopefully soon… But I was able to finish the Shadespire Farstriders, the Stormcast Vanguard-Hunters variants. Basically Cybermen with […]Read More Warhammer Underwear: The Farstriders
The Nighthaunts the Nightvault… ok, enough with the bad puns already. I used these to experiment with some color schemes I wanted to try out for my Nighthaunt army that is patiently awaiting to be brought to life. I chose to do the bases in black flock to represent the life having […]Read More Warhammer Underwear: Thorns of the Briar Queen
Every once in a while I get the hankering to do some Nolzur’s Marvellous Miniatures. I like the monsters and have bought a few, but I can’t stand the itty bitty truscale of the humans though -they are simply too small for my tastes, the shallow details disappearing beneath the oft-to thick primer. […]Read More The Unspeakable Mouth IV: Xorn!
