I'm still enjoying painting the living dead at the moment, so today I present the wight Einar Haugen of the Order of Dust.I've had this fellow since he was first released back in the 90s. He was one of eight spectacular wights sculpted by Gary Morley. Each of them looks like an undead warlord in it's own right. I needed a couple of wights for my undead warband, so that seemed like a good opportunity to finally paint them up.The Hateful Eight. Also, check out that vampire.This was also my first outing with the new Games Workshop contrast paints. My own take on contrast is to integrate it into my existing way of painting and see how it fits in. I wanted the wights to have black iron armour, and having seen a very helpful tutorial from Tyler Mengel on black armour, I set to work.I've found painting black armour a bit of a challenge in the past. Priming with Leadbelcher spray, I applied two coats of Black Templar paint mised 2:1 with contrast medium. Contrast medium is a must have when using the new paints. It op
The first of the warband supplements for Beastgrave, the third season of Warhammer Underworlds is a Flesh-Eater Court warband, the Grymwatch. The Grymwatch is an undead warband supplement for Warhammer Underworlds and costs 25.00 EUR. So these got a small price increase from the former 22.50 RRP price tag. There are 6 ghouls and a […]
Lord Gilbert, halfling Vampire, returns to lead an invading force into Brotherhood territory. Will the knights stand firm or will the shambling horde of undead?
It's that time of year again, and so my thoughts turn back again to my first love, the undead. I'm adding to my undead at the moment for Warcry, and the bug has got me to paint more. This guy is from the Triumph of Death kickstarter, from Skull & Crown. At the time of writing they are running their second kickstarter, Triumph of Death 2. For an undead fan, it's kind of an unmissable kickstarter.Death and the Abbot From Holbein's Dance of Death. Yes, you can get an undead bishop as a miniature.The inspiration for the range comes from the work of the likes of Dürer, Holbein and Bruegel. I am a huge fan of their work, so I was very excited to see it realized as a range of miniatures. There are some real greats in there, such as skeleton with giant fish. Mordheim anyone?Wollf carries a rusty but still deadly Zweihänder.As for Sergeant Wollf here, he will serve as a skeleton champion in my undead warband. I get the impression he was quite the dapper gent in life, as most Landsknecht were. I bet his
Yesterday was the last day of the current 30 Days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenge; which earlier this week looked like it was not going to happen.A last push at the finish line made the following possible:First up are Confederates from Old Glory. These 15mm figures are animated and characterful; just what you need for charging the Union lines.Next, an old mid nineties skeleton from Citadel or Marauder Miniatures. A great figure to paint, perfect for finishing off a painting challenge.Completed this challenge:Day 30 - 34 figures completed.Cheers for now
Great undead style ogre figure from the Massive darkness kickstarter. Painted with a combination of contrast (browns, creams and black) and traditional painting and shades (e.g. skin was pale pink then thinned down blue shade).This figure is from D&D Chainmail, I believe it was a troll, but would pass as an ogre happily; painted with contrast paints and then highlighted, metals were painted more traditionally and shaded.x
Today we have a real gem. Painted for the #paintabob competition on the Oldhammer Facebook page, this rotting monarch is from Essex Miniatures. He looks like he's spent several weeks down a well. He was ludicrously fun to paint.When painting this fellow, I used the painting technique for rotting flesh used by Tyler Mengel of Mengel Miniatures. Here's the recipe should you wish to try it yourself.As you can see, it's mostly washes. This suits Olley sculpts extremely well. It's also much more fun to play about with washes instead of laboriously layering skin, which suddenly becomes a cloak. Or an ear. Or a portal into the nightmare dimension.King Slough might be a bit past his prime, but he still gets a big screamy face shield.I painted the rest of the king to match my other undead. He's certainly going to be going into my Warcry warband, probably as a seneschal. It'll give me a lot of chuckles to see him go to town on some svelt chaos warband, imagining him shouting "What's that sonny?" and "Here's how we did
Hello! As the first entry in the new week I would like to show you the warband for Warcry skirmish system. Below you can see a full gallery of individual units. Miniatures painted by artists from our Studio. Warcry is the latest release from Games Workshop and all signs indicate that the game has already had a success. Local shops got rid of their stocks of starter sets very quickly, and the wave of new bands flooding us shows that the system will be supported. In addition to the new factions, the game also features card sets with statistics for the “old” units. The game supports fast, brutal battles lasting about 1 hour, which perfectly fits the current skirmish trend. Additionally, the option of developing units and creating a campaign is strongly marked. Soon we will be able to present you with new branches and areas…. Meanwhile – goodbye! Commission painting services – email@example.com and Messenger
Some newly painted skeleton warriors from my constantly growing collection of miniatures. Hope you will like these.Banda szkieletów, którzy do niedawna zalegali w pudełkach. Udało się ich pomalować i jak zawsze stylóweczka nieco komiksowa wyszła. Chyba już nie potrafię malować w inny sposób ^^
And something else right before the summer holidays end....This time a necromancer, this guy is a HATE miniature from the skirmish game kick-started by CMON some time back. Mostly painted by traditional methods but the black was contrast with some highlighting.Shame that the skull in his hand is horribly miss-cast but never-mind, obviously some kind of mutant's old skullProbably the last thing I will paint all year, but who knows perhaps the kids will be calm enough to give me time to sit at the desk for a while yet.
Another progress update on the 30 Days, 30 Miniatures painting challenge currently ongoing. This time only two figures completed.Firstly, a Moor from Gripping Beast that is needed to complete a stand of heavy infantry. This figure was originally started earlier this year and has just languished behind everything else.Next, is a plastic skeleton from Citadel or Games Workshop or whatever they are now branded.Originally started in last year's AHPCIX, it wasn't finished before the end of the challenge. Might have been supersition as it would have been the 13th of its lot, might not have. So its finished now and regardless of when it was finished it will always be the 13th of its lot.Day 19 - 9 figures completedBetter get a move on as time is marching on.Cheers for now
Hi All,After submitting my Army pose post for The Old World Army Challenge, I realized how terrible it was. You can see the post here.First I did a terrible panorama.I realized after putting the post together that I had left out one skeleton archer because I had to glue the giant arrow back in his hand.I had wanted to recreate the Kev Adams pose from Warhammer Armies, but i couldn't manage it in the space I was using. As you can see I was already annoyed because I had been "disturbing" my kids while they were trying to watch Futurama.Iannick made a comment about my expression, so I fixed it.Anyway, I neglected to put the army total in my wrap up.10 Grim Reapers 120 points1 Skull Chucker + 3 man Crew 60 points20 Zombies with Standard and Musician 88 points10 Skeleton Archers 120 points1 10th Lvl Liche Doombinder 150 points5 Death Riders 105 points1 Plague Cart 100 pointsBonus Army(?) Standard Bearer 24 points?For a total of 1031 points and 72 or so painted figures.I wish I had time to bask in that, but I don't
!Juan I de Aragón en toda su gloria! Esta miniatura no muerta se ve genial pintada y ademas se puede jugar también como un caballero bretón si le ponemos el yelmo completo. Hemos tomado algunas fotos y un video en 360º. Un día menos y la cuenta atrás sigue mientras continuamos luchando por mostraros todas las cosas antes de que termine la campaña. Juan I es uno de nuestros personajes favoritos. Es una miniatura muy versátil que tanto los nigromantes como los comandantes vivos sabrán apreciar. Con tres diferentes cascos y dos opciones distintas de armamento, será una miniatura monopose, pero con un montón de opciones. Jugarlo como caballero no muerto o como caballero bretón… esa es la cuestión.Pero dejemos de hablar y vamos a ver la excelente pintura de Giye en este video en 360º. También tenemos una galería de fotos para que os fijéis en los detalles. Esta es la matriz de Juan I. Como podéis ver son tres cabezas muy diferentes y dos opciones de armamento. Una miniatura realmente dual. Echa
Galliard de Galliners… o el caballero de la gallina como se podría hacer llamar. Otra gran miniatura no muerta para nuestra campaña en kickstarter. Este caballero no muerto ha sido pintada por Giye así que sin más dilación vamos a ver todos los detalles Lo cierto es que creo que esta miniatura resulta muy original, incluso si reconoces la cabeza y el yelmo sin la gallina en lo alto. Fue una pena, pero tuvimos un accidente mientras tomábamos las fotos. Es por ello que la guarda de la espada esta rota, algo que no habría pasado si en vez de ser resina de impresión 3d hubiese sido resina plástica. Otro gran caballero no muertoBueno, con guarda o sin ella, se ve el gran trabajo de pintura que ha hecho Giye con Galliard que luce espectacular. Vamos a ver el video. Y unas cuantas fotografías más para que os fijéis bien en los detalles. Mientras tomábamos las fotos no estábamos muy seguros si enfocar el rostro o a la gallina… así que he aquí su momento de gloria. Bueno, la campaña ya casi ha
El Dip ha sido una miniatura que ha cosechado bastante éxito. Por ello hemos pensado que lo mismos había que esculpir unos cuantos más… asi que aquí tenéis a nuestra última incorporación a la campaña de no muertos, la Manada de Dips. Ya sabéis que los planes, generalmente empiezan como planeaste y luego acaban de aquella manera… esto es un poco lo que nos ha pasado con The Fallen County of Ampurias, en kickstarter. Iba a ser un proyecto pequeñito y bueno al final hemos acabado esculpiendo mas miniaturas antes de que acabe la campaña. Como pudisteis leer en nuestro anterior artículo La Leyenda del Dip, esta maléfica criatura viene directamente desde el infierno. En Castilla Oscura puedes jugar toda una manada de Dips, así que fue una gran excusa para esculpir unos cuantos más un poco más pequeños. La manada de Dips, nuestro último AddonQuizá decidas jugarlos como huargos o lobos no muertos. Unicamente recuerda, !es tu juego, tus miniaturas y tus reglas! Aquí tenéis a la manada de Dips
