  1. To the ramparts! Good stuff! SK
  2. Cool version of a classic WK sculpt. The player will love it I'm sure. SK
  3. Nice grouping of WK dwarves! Keep 'em comin' SK
  4. Strange, this almost brought me to tears. Sam is 19 now, sadly we don't talk much these days. She has become a talented artist. Ironically, my third and youngest daughter is now 7, and she has a love for dragons too. She has at least 10-12 pre-painted plastic dragons in her collection from my FLGS, plus a huge metal Reaper Dragon (T'Raukzul) sitting in her room right now! Thanks for digging this one up and posting. I was transported back in time, if only for a few minutes. SK, getting sentimental in my old age.
  5. Nice skin tones. Very smooth. SK
  6. That's cool. SK
  7. I like this. Just needs a larger black base underneath to make the snow base pop. SK
  8. Nice version of this model! SK
  9. Welcome. Really nice. Love the soft tones, the spot pattern is excellent, and the base work is nice as well. Hope to see a few more like this... SK
  10. Cool. Is that a brass name plate on the shoulder guard? SK
  11. Thanks you guys... Yeah, I committed to painting my UMs in this color/ style in 2010-11, so I've stuck with it for continuity purposes. Additionally, I have not used any metallic paints since 2004-05, so it takes me a long time to do any gold, steel, or bronze. Moreover, the armor on my UMs lack battle damage, scoring, or dirtiness (which I've always wanted to try). Still, it's a 5-6 layer process that takes forever! Maybe it's time to start painting some fantasy models again. Search you feelings Stern, you know it to be true... SK
  12. Nice. I like the wood tones on the bow, it's a little too close to her boots in color, but I still like it. For a quick table top commission, this is really well done man. SK
  13. I completed this model a couple of weeks ago. It is a Forgeworld model from the Horus Heresy Special Characters line of models. What a kit! It came with an elaborate base, but I elected to forego this as I will be adding this to small diorama that will include Roboute's honor guard. The model was very challenging and tricky to assemble. I painted it in six sub-assembly sections, then pinned and glued it together as a final step. Tons of low relief detail on this sculpt, so getting the paint where you wanted it to go was tough. SK
  14. Good to see this thread still kickin'! Love seeing everyone's painting areas. SK
  15. A fine version of this model! Love the dynamic pose on this sculpt. SK
