Cobra!

Posted on April 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I finished up the black on the Cobras this week and started on the gray, there’s just a highlight or two left for that. I’ll likely get to that this weekend, and may be able to do the jeweling too so I can clean up and start in on the orange next week.

Additionally, my buddy Jon helped me out with some additional Warlocks. I now have enough for three Ulthwé guardian formations.

Finally, I tried out my new idea for basing characters with these Saim-Hann Farseers. The magnet I set into the base works well enough with a pin head glued to the underside of the figure. I’ll likely start doing all my characters like this, unless they require extensive conversions (like an Oddboy).

Three Scorpions Up!

Posted on April 20th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I’m calling the Scorpions done, painting-wise. I hit them with one more highlight on each color and finished up the other two tanks this past week. If I have time this weekend I hope to hit them with a glosscote so I can put the transfers on, and then …

Highlights, Take Three

Posted on April 13th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I added some Elf Flesh highlights to the orange, Blue Horror to the black and Elven Gray to the weapons, and I’m not convinced the photos show any of them… I’ve got a few hours tonight to paint, I’ll see how I like them then and decide if I want to go further still. The other two tanks are progressing as well, I finished up everything on them except for their hulls and weapons. I’ll start in on those tonight too.

High All the Lights

OK, take two on the highlights. I went back and re-edged the black with Eshin Grey followed by Fenrisian Grey, and widened the orange highlight of Firedragon Bright while completely edging with Lugganath Orange. Worse? Better? About the same? I think I…

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Autarch Brown!

Posted on April 6th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I highlighted and shaded one of the Scorpions to completion this week to start to figure out how I’m going to paint these colors. I’m pretty happy with the blue-ish grey weapons and the canopy/gems but I’m not quite there on the orange and black. The o…

Grimdark Creamsicles

Posted on March 29th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Building these have been a background project of mine for the last couple of months. I had hoped to finish my Wrath of Kings army before starting a new project but I wasn’t feeling it so here we are: Epic Craftworld Lugganath Eldar. I started out using…

Adepticon 2017

Posted on March 28th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

I got back from Adepticon yesterday, after a bit of flying, training and hoofing it up a hill with boxes of swag in tow. It was a good time for the most part. Plenty of games, excellent tacos and horchata (it’s near the old venue, but we always head ou…

Lady Lupa – Part II

Posted on February 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I finished up Lupa’s skin and hair last night. I still see a few places in these pics that I want to go back to.

I also painted up her skirt, shirt (although those highlights are pretty much washed out), leather and brass too.

The fur, and wrappings…

Man O’ War, Epic and More!

Posted on February 22nd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

I’ve been painting, but slacking on the picture-taking front. I’ve mostly been working on Wrath of Kings Zeti for a paining competition at my FLGS. They’re nearly done, so pics up soon. In the meantime, enjoy some shots from this past weekend’s games d…

Like Sparticus, Just with Less Dong

Posted on February 13th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I picked up an Arena Rex starter at CaptainCon this past weekend, along with two gladiators. One was Lupa, the Kickstarter limited edition figure. Apparently the game’s company is having a painting competition at Adepticon, so I thought I’d try my hand…
