Paint Table Saturday
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,With Track Season in full swing I seem to have less time to actually blog. Last Saturday my son ran a 5K and this Sunday he will be running a 3K.So I've been plugging away at the plastic zombiesand skeletons.I should have been prepping the Skull and Crown "archers" but I took the path of least resistance and kept on working on things that were primed/started.I also started digging through the collection to look for the bits I need for this summer's Realm of Chaos renegade game at Warhammer World. A couple of Orksand some plastic Cultists made it onto the table, [In both cases they came with paint jobs that will need to be stripped.]as well as a box of Gors I purchased to convert into "Beastmen in Spaaaaace!"Thanks for looking.
Hi All,It seems like I always finish models sometime during the week and then always forget to share them with you all on PTS.I have had to wait 24 hours to share them here due to the rules of the Old World Army Challenge. If you like seeing painted figures you should check that blog out.So here they are:5 Death Riders. From a black base coat I drybrushed using my Reaper Bone Triad. I enjoyed doing the verdigris helmets and skull design, although in a rush to finish the shields I seem to have wiped off the Spectral Glow wash a little more than I'd like.The Skull Chucker and crew were also built up from a black undercoat. For my rusted metal effect I used craft paint (Charcoal Grey, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Orange, Bright Orange) followed by a drybrush of Blackened Steel.Lastly, 3 Skeleton Warriors from the old Skeleton Regiment box. The person who sold me these also had the metal command conversion blister and the metal coffin lid shields. These were base coated in white and, more or less, painted fol
Hi All,Wow! It's been awhile since I've post a Table report. That was not the plan.Here is the Army I'm assembling for the Old World Army Challenge. I of course over bought and so have way more than 1000 points here, but you get the idea.This is my setup in the garage. I'm trying to relocate my hobby stuff in there to stop taking over the whole house. It is now very cramped in there.I plan on using a mixture of Games Workshop, Reaper, Mantic, Skull and Crown, and Upstream Games House miniatures in this army.I'll post up a better look of the units in the coming weeks. As you can see I have a lot of assembly to do before January 1st and I need to write up my starting post for the OWAC.Thanks for looking and commenting.
Painting 28mm miniatures is my passion and along with the building of terrain, video gaming, roleplaying and board gaming this is what takes up my free time. I have spent the last six months of so not painting. The move and the need to get some money coming in has kind of superseded the urge to paint. As much as anything else it has been finding a place to paint. Despite being a house, the place where I am living at the moment is smaller than pretty much anywhere I have lived in the last twenty years. So I have no place for workbench. Right now I am regretting getting rid of my old cupboard. I know I complained about it a lot at the time but right now I am longing for it. I started the year with the desire to continue The New Cruelty. Perhaps it is time to get back to both.So I have had to come up with an alternative solution. The only place I have to work is my kitchen table. Obviously this is not a great place to paint and it's a fairly high traffic area so I can't leave anything setup indefinitely. Despite
Hi All,Close to being finished on the Dwarf Brewmeister.The goblins are figures that I finished a long time ago that needed their bases touched up. Then a couple of hero forge figures I have on slow burn.Aidan had his final regulation Cross Country race of the season. Ran an unofficial 11:29 3K. Came in first place with a 9 second PR. Building off a great track and field season.Thanks for looking and commenting.
Hi All,Primed the Umber Hulks with craft paint and brushed it on. If I added water to thin the paint it would bead on the plastic. So it took a long time to get good coverage on each model. I still have to go back in with a small brush and hit all the little spots that somehow didn't get paint in them.I intend for these to be rough drybrush along the theme of the other monsters I did, so not the exact color as the Knightmare Ambulls. We'll see how it goes, I have to look back at those posts to remind myself of the paints used.Thanks for looking and commenting.
Hi All,Although the progress has been minimal, there has been some.I may have some finger grease on the lens. I think I also need to try auto focus, my eyes don't work well enough for manual focus.I got the uniforms and flesh base color done on almost all of them. I missed an ear or two (not all of them have ears showing) and their fingers and toes can be tricky to find when they're primed black.No added work on the Umber Hulks.You may also see some Uscarl squats on the bench. I needed to make room in my washtub for the Umber Hulks, so they are not necessarily next.Our plan is to write up 500 point forces for the sequel to the Wizard Battle, but we'll see what points value makes sense once we run the numbers. Of course we could just throw stuff down on the table, but I want my son to get the full experience of Oldhammer. Back then I made way more lists than I ever played games. I think it also gets you looking through the books more to find the special rules and points values for things.Happy painting.
