Returning to a favourite genre and style of figure; the Undead and in this case Wights from Mithril (left of picture) and Citadel. These are a recent entry to the AHPC IX. There are more of these to be painted and rebased for use in a skirmish game coming to a gaming table near you soon. A game when the world was older and darker and a warrior could carve a name for themselves worthy of a saga.More undead to follow shortly.Cheers for now
Still a lot on the painting table and not nearly enough time to complete it all for the Challenge's end on Wednesday. Main areas that will be concentrated on include the 15mm Crusaders, 25mm Dark Elves, 28mm Late Roman horse archers and more 28mm skeletons.The Normans will have to wait until post challenge.The board is set...
A new project always has something magical about it, and in the case of Frostgrave that's literally the way it is. As Dennis summarized nicely in his review, Frostgrave is a pretty simple setting - two rival wizards seek treasures in the frozen city Felstadt. That's it. After the flood of complex and lengthy fantasy […]
Moving forward with another three sets of figures. First up, Late Roman archers from Gripping Beast. These will be ideal for supporting missile units and skirmishers. Also pictured are the first Crusader cavalry in 15mm as well as some command figures. Next some classic plastic skeletons from Citadel along with the occasional metal figure in here too.Last up, original Normans from Foundry. These have had more colour added with two layers of flesh added and the base coat for the armour and metallics.More to follow along with a rebasing update.Cheers for now.
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
A work in update on some 28mm Undead figures from Mithril Miniatures and Citadel.Top left is a Mithril Miniatures Wight. Base coated white then painted with Technical paint Nighthaunt Gloom. The dried figure has then been worked upto what you see using the Gloom paint mixed with white. Bloody marvelous effect can be obtained here. Citadel really need to expand this range as this really does give good results. Top right and bottom left shows two Citadel wights. Both have been painted using layers. The top figure using Vallejo Game Colours Scruvy, Jade and Foul Green with a final touch of white added in. The second wight has been using Foundry Teal AB & C again with some white added as a final highlight. Lastly some Citadel Skeleton base coated in Army Painter Skeleton Bone waiting for the next stage of painting. Some other pieces are nearing completion and will hopefully be shown in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge next week. Hmmm, some of the pics could be better. Chee
It's been a week, and there's stuff to look at.Like weathervane head here. He's a weapon attachment for the upcoming Infernals faction in Warmachine (I believe they're calling the Hordes logo on this stuff a mis-label), and given that some of the preview spoilers featured weird blobs of flesh as units, does that mean human warriors accompany the flesh things or do the humans come with their own infantry in infernals like some kind of mixed sylvaneth force? Time may tell...Harlequin Versh is a minicrate model of the Order of Illuminati hunter guy, Harlan Versh.While seemingly out of character for the guy (the original model looks very much like above. Grim and stalwart, pointing his gun at evil, as one does), the contrast between the steady stance and what will be a motleyed coat with peasant cape may prove to be a game winner. Quite a few don't seem to like it already, though.They can send me their stuff if they like. I'll have an army of Harlequins named Versh.Then Gunmeister games previewed their Undead Dea
Below is the first submission from this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge or AHPC IX for short. The figures are all from 15mm.co.uk and are a part of a HOTT army that grows yearly. One stand of archers and one of crossbows; plus skirmishers from each.There will be a few more for this army in the remainder of the challenge which will complete the army for the time being.All the figures are painted with base, wash and dry brush for a table top standard suitable for this scale.The composite picture will become a feature in the blog from know on, allowing different angles to be shown together.Next will be work in progress on a long stalled project.Cheers for now
Hi All,Well, it was not my intention to go over a week before my next post but that's how it goes sometimes.I got a little bit of work yesterday. Painted Earth Brown on some bases and stuck down sand on the IG bases. During the week I knocked out a bunch of dry brushing on the bone stuff, primed some skeletons in white, and finished building the last few figures of the Imperial Guard Command Section I need for next weekend. (Typing that out makes me nervous.)Death Riders and Skull Chucker.Skeleton Regiment.Lieutenant and Command Section, plus Grenade Launcher Guardsman that I need.Anyway, I need to go off and take another training course for coaching. They're wanting us to all have accreditation as well as background checks etc.Happy painting everyone.
The miniature is called Satheras, Elf Warlock. It was produced by Reaper Miniatures and sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I bought it several years ago as it was released as one of the first minis in Reaper Bone Series. Figurka wydana kilka lat temu przez Reaper Miniatures w serii Bone. Tani plastyczny materiał,z którego została wyprodukowana nie ułatwiał malowania, ale jak na model za kilka złotych wyszło całkiem dobrze.
Hope that everyone had a great time over the festive period and are relaxing in preparation for the New Year. Today was the first real painting session for this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge and a varied host of Undead have been started. The 28mm figures at the back include Mithril Miniatures and Citadel; both from back in the late 80's and early 90's.In the foreground are more 15mm undead archers from Alternative Armies/15mm co. There are a few other figures in the wings that have been started. It's been a in the moment day so moved from one group to the other as the flow went. No worries just going with it and will see what the next session brings. Cheers for now.
Travis is back for another Vanguard game! This time we have to Capture the Plans dropped by the lost Dwarf… scouring the Battlefield for their location.
There are already points on the board and some fantastically painted miniatures to view in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.The painting table as it stands with the first figures for this year's challenge front and centre.Next are freshly prepared Ancient Greeks from Foundry. These have now all been undercoated.Will be a few days before there is any real painting time for these retro figures.Cheers for now.
The Warmaster Tomb Kings army I have is an acquisition from a friend who used to play the game. Despite having 1000s of points of Skeleton Warriors he began to paint up some Chaos Marauders as units of ethereal undead warriors. He initially painted them in white but since then GW has released the Hexwraith Flame shade and so I did a wash with that and then drybrushed the models with Pallid Wytchflesh and then white.
Nie jest martwym to, co może spoczywać przez wieki... Tyle w temacie milczenia na blogu, spowodowanego malarskim blokiem. By choć trochę go przełamać, pomazałem drugiego zombie z serii dla kolekcjonerów, który smętnie stał na półeczce, pomalowany podkładem, gdzieś tak od ponad pół roku.Prawdę mówiąc, wypróbowałem też na nim jeden z nowych nabytków, marker "malujący" farbą metaliczną - niespecjalnie to widać na gotowej miniaturce, ale tasak był początkowo naprawdę ładnie metaliczny, dopiero potem pordzewiał;) Dla markerów tego typu widzę zresztą przyszłość w swoim warsztacie.A zombie - cóż, jak to zombie, urodą pewnie nie grzeszy, ale wzmacnia szeregi moich klasycznych nieumarłych stosunkowo rzadką figurką, a ja dostaję plus jeden punkt za malowanie jeszcze w 2018 r. :)This is not dead which can eternal lie - let this phrase be a summary of lack of updates on the blog, which was caused by my painting block. In order to improve state of the things I decided to finally paint second zombie from the Citadel's Coll
