Hi All,Just a quick post because I've been terrible about blogging this month.I finished a couple of figures and posted them over at the Old World Army Challenge here. You should really take a look at all the entries, but if you only have time for one you owe it to yourself to take a look at Tom's Dwarves.Anyway, here's my guys.My leader, Zazad the Eternal (thanks random name generator), and the standard bearer for my skeleton troops.Death, from Skull and Crown's Triumph of Death, came with two arm options.I wasn't able to decide on the arm options so I tried magnetizing. It worked more or less. I also inadvertently changed the head position after breaking his head off before even prepping him.I last minute decided to give him a sword after looking at the box art.My posing has left him a tad unbalanced so he needs to be placed carefully to not fall forward and to the right.June is going to be hectic, so we'll see if I can get the last two units done, in addition to my BOYL and local gaming projects.Thanks for
Hi All,Well I finally got my skeletons and Zombies finished.Here they are.10 Skeleton "archers" from Skull and Crown: Triumph of DeathAnd 20 of the plastic boxed set of Zombies from Games Workshop. Which they still sell here.I thought I'd give you a close up of the banner as well. In the next few days I'll do a post on how I did it. I call it paint by numbers, as I can't draw very well. It involves stitching together various line art in GIMP or Photoshop and then printing it out on paper and coloring within the lines.The skeletons were once again base coated white and then slathered in a mix of yellow and brown ink before being drybrushed with the Reaper Bone Triad. The zombies were base coated grey and painted with Reaper's Undead Skin Tone Triad. I tried to use some color desaturated with grey, it was so so in my opinion. I also painted some areas that were intended to be flesh as cloth, such as the banner bearers legs. The exposed muscles and guts got a wash of Purple and Red ink, with the guts getting an
Hi All,Well, I'm sorry about the extra spotty posting of late. Track Season and being sick have effected hobby output across the board. Although I didn't finish the figures I had planned to do, I managed to fulfill my 200 point obligation to the Old World Army Challenge.I am at that point of the year where I am frustrated with a lot in life. To use a cliche, I'm not sure I'm living my "best life." Anyway, I'm taking a break from social media etc for now to try and really accomplish my hobby goals. If you're curious about how I painted these I encourage you to read it on the Old World blog. It's very straight forward and easy.I'd like to welcome Ed Gladdis to the blog, sorry to be a downer before welcoming you. Ed is a super talented painter and has his own blog The Work of Shaitan. You owe it to yourself to follow him.Thanks for looking.Happy painting.
Hi All,Still unpainted, but slightly more assembled this week.Here is the 1000 points arrayed. Nowhere near as far along as they should be. Oh well.The Command section I'll be adding to my existing IG squad for the local campaign I've been invited to. I'm trying to ridge the gap between the compendium and 2nd Ed 40K IG lists with 2000 era figures. Above is the medic, Lieutenant, banner orderly and Lascannon team.This is the squad they will join. I painted them last year. I will swap out the Vox Caster for a guy with a grenade launcher.Thanks for looking, happy painting and happy holidays.
