Welcome back to the Precipes everyone! Today we are going to look at a WIP of U2-025 with a break down of the paints used to create the blue panelling. More after the Mag-lift.More after the jump
In 2017, I started painting a Skaven Blood Bowl team – the Scurvy Scurriers. Unfortunately, after only five models, other projects caught my interest and I never completed the team. One of the few unfinished projects of mine. However, Games Workshop released a board game version of Blood Bowl last year, called Blitz Bowl, which only needs six models a team. Which means I am only one model (plus tokens) short! A nice in-between project after finishing my Silver Skulls Kill Team (stay tuned for the showcase post).Notice the dungeon style base that matches the Blitz Bowl game board – I will change my older models to match. What do you think?
Another update on my Silver Skulls Team. Working on the final two models, still this takes longer than expected. Garfy slaps out these Primaris so quickly, makes me admire his Conquest run even more. Speaking of Garfy, doesn't the Sergeant with the sword look a little bit like Garf when he had a mohawk? Hmm, I might be on to something...
I spent a whole week of evenings hand painting this armour. Glazing and glazing Warpstone Glow over Caliban Green was very tedious. Spending so long with this model I had a lot of time to think. I was considering the aesthetic of this scheme. Technically it's a complicated blend which I think is very pleasing to the eye but if you're into realism then these highlights fall short of that expectation. Miniature painting is art and that means it's all about the painter expressing themselves. I do this by choosing to paint bright, sharp paint jobs that wouldn't look out of place in a 1990s White Dwarf (like Kim Syberg Spaces Wolves). How about you? What kind of style do you prefer? Would you ever spend a week hand blending the armour or would you break out the airbrush?
This model is pretty cool because I bought him in Warhammer World last month. I hadn't been to Warhammer World for a couple of years and it's so good. We spent a good couple of hours in the exhibition area and had lunch in Bugman's and in the evening we played Blackstone Fortress. It was surreal to play in Bugman's with Phil Kelly walking around, Jes Goodwin sat two tables away from us and even Dan Harden of White Dwarf fame was in there playing Blood Bowl. Honestly, it was amazing. I want to go back now! Oh well, best crack on and finish this model. Let me know in the comments your Warhammer World stories.More after the jump
As the last weeks of this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge start the sudden realisation that hardly anything has been submitted.This will soon change with the first of several batches being posted this week.But first, some random work in progress pictures of current painting.Command stands for the 15mm Crusaders.Some Late Saxons from 1st Corps? These are being speed painted; block base colours snd washed with strong tone. No more than twenty minutes painting on each.The rebasing continues with all painted Germanic Tribes and Hun cavalry waiting for their bases to be textured, dry brushed and flocked. This time round all of the Late Romans, Germanic Tribes and Huns will have the same basing flock and tufts. This will enable all of them to be used as a part of the same or different armies. SimplesThinking that starting this during the AHPC IX wasn't the best thing to do.On top of the amp, there are some Undead, Moors, Germanic tribes and Late Romans as well.More to follow shortly along with some compl
Update on my Silver Skulls Kill Team. The two Intercessors are complete (apart from the chapter icon), now on to two more Reavers. I experimented a bit with different skin tones on these. Hope to finish this batch soon to keep up with all the awesome releases GW has come up lately! What do you think? Leave a comment or reaction below.
Hi all! As many other hobbyists I often start several models that I'd like to paint but then painting comes to a halt every time I turn to another new model. So today I would like to ask you to help me decide which of these two models I should finish next...More after the jump
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.
Continuing to work on the Late Romans just now with a horn blower from Foundry now ready for basing. On reflection glad this figure never sold on previous clear outs.This figure will join a previously painted command figure also from Foundry.When finished the stand will be used in ADLG. Base as always from Warbases.More work in progress to follow shortlyCheers for now.
In between painting entries for this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge there has been a large rebasing project underway.Here is the first unit in the early stages of rebasing including six newly painted troops to fill out the ranks.The figures are all from Gripping Beast with Little Big Men to complete the look.When finished these will be shown in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.Cheers for now.
Here's a little WIP shot of three Reivers I've got going on at the moment. These are from Issue 21 of the Conquest Magazine Subscription. Hoping to have these finished by the end of the week which should leave me with a week to spare before the next delivery turns up.
Keeping up with showing my WIPs. That’s right I am doing some Witch Doctor Dwarves. I mean Fyreslayers are already naked. May as well give some of them some grass skirts and the leader a voodoo mask… Next stage is … Continue reading →
Here we have the assembled Silver Skulls Kill Team. Bases will be painted seperately, so I mounted these on plain 32mm bases for painting. I'm not completely sure about the pose of the Sergeant, maybe I'll try a more downward stretched arm for the power sword. Check out more pictures, including more angles of my Reiver test model.More after the jump
Another day, another WIP. I'm going to use this post to quickly take stock of my current hobby. As you can see from the picture my Conquest delivery finally arrived (two weeks late) and I've rushed ahead with painting the next issue which is Lord Felthius & the Tainted Cohort. I've also assembled and base coated the rest of this month's subscription models (cargo container and three more Reivers). More on those at a later date. What does that leave left to do? Well I still have those three Pox Walkers to finish, but I did manage to finish the two Reivers I was working on last week. I'll share a photo of those later on in the week. My concern is with this subscription delivery being two weeks late, am I going to get the next monthly delivery in two weeks time so the publisher catches up? That doesn't give me much time to get everything painted. It's going to be a busy two weeks so watch this space. NEW Garfy's Get a Grip Long Pro now available and in stock.
