Cang the Implacable

Posted on March 18th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

This is the biggest piece I’ve ever done. The model from CMON is quite incredible. The positives: stunning looking piece, the pose and scenery are brilliant, fantastic details, gorgeous dragon face. I can only think of a couple of negatives: it required lots of putty work as it didn’t fit well and the sculpting of the scales is a bit disappointing on the body parts.
The painting was really hard, done most of it on my knees which was tiring. I followed the original artwork which was a bit conservative on my part as I didn’t want to mess it. It was great to paint but I didn’t really enjoy it this time, it’s so big I found it difficult. Even taking pictures was hard so I just took photos on the dining table.
Anyway, I think I ticked the dragon box for the Blog.
Je crois que c’est la plus grosse pièce que je n’ai jamais eu à faire. La figurine de chez CMON est fantastique. Les points positifs : pièce de toute beauté, la pose et les décors sont excellents, je n’ai jamais vue une meilleure tete de dragon. Il y a aussi quelques points négatifs : beaucoup de travail de preparation car les différentes pièces ne se sont pas très bien assemblées, la sculpture des écailles sur le corps qui ne sont pas très intéressantes.

La peinture fut délicate, j’ai passé la plupart du temps sur mes genoux, ce qui est crevant. J’ai suivi la peinture originale car je ne voulais pas me planter. Ce fut une sacr ée expérience de peindre ça mais pour etre honnête je n’ai pas aimé, j’ai trouvé ça très difficile. Même prendre des photos fut un peu galère, j’ai pris l’option table du salon ..

Bref, je crois que j’ai couvert le tag dragon pour le blog.

Marauder of the Apocalypse

Posted on February 24th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

This is a model I finished a while ago but struggling to find time to blog. I had done a sort of WIP post about it already and here’s the finished version. The beast is from Mierce Miniatures and the ogre from Avatar of War. This is a model I really enjoyed converting despite it being in metal. I did a slightly higher base for it to add verticality. The painting has been fun and the model is already gone to its new master.
J’avais fini ce modèle il y a quelques semaines déjà mais j’ai du mal à trouver du temps pour m’occuper du Blog. J’avais faits un « travail en cours » et voici la version finie. La créature est de Mierce Minaitures et l’ogre de chez Avatar of War. Je m’etais régalé à faire la conversion et ce fut pareil pour la peinture.


Super Dungeon Explore: Fully Painted (again)

Posted on January 27th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Here’s another set of Super Dungeon Explore I did before Christmas. As requested, I kept the “classis colours” of the original artwork. This is a really fun series of models although there’s some crazy preparation work with assembly and cleaning those terrible mould lines. This is the third set I’ve done, I wouldn’t mind doing the models from the expansion, just for a change. However, I’m going to start painting Arcadia Quest soon which I’m really excited about.

Voilà le dernier set de Super Dungeon Explore que j’ai fait avant les vacances de Noël. Le client m’avait demandé de garder les couleurs « classique » de la boîte de base. C’est une très bonne série de figurines même si les lignes de moules et l’assemblage sont une vraie galère. C’est le troisième set que j’ai fait, j’aimerais bien peindre les figurines de l’extension, juste pour changer … Par contre, je vais bientôt commencer les figurines pour Arcadia Quest, je suis impatient.


Nagash Supreme Lord of the Undead

Posted on January 20th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Here’s a paintjob I did for somebody’s Christmass. I’ve to say it’s an incredible kit from Games Workshop. It was very easy to put together and came with many variations. It all fit beautifully and required very little putty work. How do the work the assemblage is mind boggling.
I tried to follow the paintjob from the studio and added a different base. I really enjoyed doing this one and hope it will see many battles.
Voici une des peintures que j’avais fais comme cadeau de Noël. Le kit est absolument incroyable. Très facile à assembler et avec beaucoup de variations possibles, je n’arrêtais pas de me demander comment ils concoient ces pièces pour l’assemblage. Tout c’est très bien monté et j’ai eu très peu de rebouchage à faire.

J’ai un peu suivi la peinture du studio et ai faits un socle different. Je me suis bien amusé à le faire et j’espère qu’il verra de nombreuses batailles.




Marauder of the Apocalypse

Posted on January 14th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

I think I’m just typing this post to use that name in the title. It’s quite a statement.
Anyway, this is a conversion with a model from Avatar of War and one from Mierce (Ulmons, the beast). The ogre is in metal which made for some hard work. I had to change the legs and a few bits. I’m excited to start painting it.

Marauder de l’apocalypse, rien que ça. C’est le nom de l’ogre de chez « avatar of War ». Je suis en train de faire une conversion avec une monture de chez Mierce, ça va faire une belle figurine je pense. Je languis d’attaquer la peinture.

Cryx Monday: Commissioned Harrower

Posted on January 13th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Brandon asked me for two pieces of mini: his Aiakos and a harrower. This model I did the “standard Cryx job” on. Seeing how I sold my Cryx to Brandon, this was not much of a stretch. I used a number of washes, including and most apparent of them is the…

WIP: Primidian Knight Model

One of my favorite races in NeoExodus are the Primidians… they have an uncanny ability to speak with anyone they encounter. However, people know them best for their tentacle arms… I mean who doesn’t like tentacles? They create hentai situations all…

Razor Coast Minis: Weresharks

Posted on January 8th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Gencon 2013, I was trolling the dealers’ room towards the end of the con. A pair of pack drew my eye: Razor Coast “official” minis featuring two weresharks and a pirate lady. On a whim, I decided to paint these two. Once assembled, I didn’t really lik…

Commission: Torch and pitchfork… Rabble! Rabble! Rabble!

Posted on January 8th, 2015 under , . Posted by

This model I got at Origins as part of the painting tests. I did a base job on-site and must say I ended up wiping everything with my finger. Their paintbrushes were just horrible. So I left with the mini. It stayed in my suitcase for the summer month…

Cryx Monday: (Another) Aiakos Commission

Posted on January 5th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Another Aiakos! This time for my friend Brandon. Unlike Chad’s which I painted back in September (which appears on the right of this), Brandon plans to use it to play Warmachine. So this minis needs to fit into a theme yet still serve as an accent piec…

Don’t tell Nate, but this model was one of the “lost souls” I had in one of my many minis-bins. I Was looking for a wizard-ish fellow. Someone that showed a little skin… I found this bronze-age spearman. Yes he’s that old. For those who do not know,…

Commission: Merry Xmas, Holly

Posted on December 26th, 2014 under , . Posted by

As a Stonehaven Gnome, this one painted up very easily and nicely. As a gnome, I wanted to make sure that she has clashing, but colorful ensemble. I believe the result works. This mini I painted a while ago and have been waiting for Xmas to hand her o…

This model was given to me as a commission by my good friend Nate. He did not have a specific scheme for it. This is for a Dark Heresy character of his. I looked at some old pictures of WWI for inspiration. I looked at some pictures. Most of the Death …

Part two of the commission-trade I did with Rory. This time, a musketeer-type character. She is a member of the Dark Archive faction. The colors of the faction are a purple flame on an open book. This in itself causes a problem, as I wanted to give him…
