  1. It's not that I haven't been painting, I just haven't been posting. I've actually completed some 40% of the Imperial Assault line since I started (focusing on what the Imperial player owns first). Ok, not much to say here. Just the basics, really: Rainy Grey, Ghost White, and Pure White. Pure Black where needed. The shields were done with the silver metallic triads (one triad per group). The batons were a silver metallic triad and the gun metal metallics. Not a lot of variety, but enough to spot the difference on the table. I've thought about going back after the visor lenses with some Adamantium Black, but somehow that sounds like too much work and I'm eager to be done with the troopers. So many troopers. Sooo much white. I'm planning on continuing the hashes on all the bases--With a few exceptions, you really don't see many situations where you'll have anything more than the regular unit and the elite. So paint one set of white marks on the regular and a set of red marks on the elites! Unique characters get a solid base without a mark. @Cyradis, I know the pictures aren't great, but I used the masking tape for the marks on the bases. I'd say it worked reasonably well, and came up easily even after making sure I had decent adhesion. I reused the same few pieces for each base, so there's some durability there. I would note, however, that the tape will work better if you have a large-ish and flat-ish area in which to work. The tape went down easily, pulled up easily, and provided a reasonable edge. Yes, I could clean it up a little, but at 3' away the little smudges aren't very visible. My next batch of minis will have something a little more suitable for testing the tape. I've got a couple Dewbacks that will need more than just the standard dull green.
  2. I have recently been invited to a Kings of War Escalation campaign. I looked around my hobby room and much to my dismay found hundreds upon hundreds of unpainted models because I am a bad, bad procrastinator. As a result,I decided to do an Undead army, and have decided to use as many miniatures I already own rather than buying new ones, many of which come from the Bones Kickstarter 1, very very old GW models and some Mantic stuff I have had for years, the idea being that the undead army is a mishmash of former armies of ancient which all fought under the same banner, sworn to never rest until a great evil has been banished from the land. Plan is to work it up to 2500 points in a few months... We will see if I can keep my painting game strong. Here's the startings of Lord Calder's Host... Pictures after the drop. -------- "Before you sign this, you need to understand that swearing fealty to Lord Calder is no small measure. I've seen those eyes before. Dreams of adventure and romance, tasting the first blood on your blade, and helping slay the evils of the world. Maybe you're in it for the coin, dark knows I was. I know the rate of pay is high, and I promise Calder can pay it. Whatever your wildest dreams, you sign with us, you'll get it. But you gotta understand boy, Calder don't give nothing for free... This contract don't end with you toes up towards the sky, the ravens feasting on your soft bits, your family safe in the wealth Lord Calder pays after you take a stray arrow in the face. No lad, this contract is binding. For today, tomorrow, and the hereafter. We all die. Maybe you'll die on the field of battle a month from now when some unknown evil claws its way out of the earths to tear apart every man, dwarf and elf across the realm, dying in a pool of your own entrails to protect whatever sweetness you keep at home. Or maybe maybe you'll die old and wrinkled in your bed, a legend among men, songs sung and glories burned into the histories. We all die. All of us. But son, you gotta understand that someday, he will call again. It don't matter how long you've slept. I swear you boy, You'll wake." ------ Comments and criticism welcome! Promise Reaper minis will be included soon.
  3. A while back there was interest in my rendition of the legendary villain Darth Vader. All too easy. I'm not trying to go overboard with these charming Grenadier minis in terms of time commitment. Instead, I'm aiming for a clean tabletop look to keep them fast and fun between more involved projects. That said, it is Darth Vader and he was begging for some OSL with his pose. Who am I to disappoint the Dark Lord of the Sith? I speed-painted the OSL and, while it isn't perfect, it was great practice and helped boost my confidence with the technique. of the several pics I took this one really makes that lightsaber shine, so I went with the awkward side shot to highlight the effect. Other than the OSL the challenge was yet more black to paint. I tried to use differences in highlighting to emphasize the different textures for more visual appeal. While typically not too tough to do, the very small size of this miniature relative to what I normally work with made it a challenge. There is at least one other sculpt of Vader from the line, and I actually have another of these, so expect to see more of him. Yoda on deck, he is!

    French Greatswords

    Painted these up for my FLGS's monthly contest. This month's theme was "brotherhood." My mind immediately went to the French Revolution, and its motto of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. Only got the one picture before I tossed it to the game store and went to drive to spend Thanksgiving with my folks. I might toss some more up when I get them back.

    Empire soldiers

    It's 1:30 here in Maryland... Just watching Bill and ted marathon with my son... Trying to get at least one mini painted each week. So we have an Age of Sigmar guy. I really like the armor design as it reminds me of Mordred's armor from Excalibur. Anyway golden armor with green accents. I like how it came out so when my box arrives this will probably be my paint scheme. Next it a combination of a kings of war basalean paladin (the legs) a warhammer empire great sword torso and arms/sword. And an empire knight head. A made him for a friend in my pathfinder game. The last picture is my wall of mostly un painted minis...

    Orrery from GW Empire Hurricanum

    I recently ordered a GW Empire Hurricanum, mainly just so I could paint up and use the orrery that is part of the piece separately, in my D&D games for times when I want to set up a wizard's lab, or arcane library, or star gazer cult, etc. So I assembled and painted that part first. I am now assembling the rest of the piece and the miniatures and will try to paint them soon too, but I will leave the orrery unattached. It was fun to paint the different planets/suns as it was different than most stuff I have painted so far.
  7. I wish I had something Reaper-y to post which showed more painting skill than this - the Reaper figures on this aren't really "painted" so much as "stained" - but it is the only thing I have with painted Reaper figures which I have got a picture of. I'll have to take some pics of the other Reaper minis I have done. Anyway; this is a Warhammer Celestial Hurricanum for the Empire, extensively converted / scratchbuilt. You can see the process of same here. I expanded on the "orrery" theme of the model, adding a flat world and a support for same made of elephants and a turtle, and put statues representing the zodiac around the edge. And, of course, I got those models from Reaper! Click for larger images; Hope people like this, and I am just sorry I don't have anything else "Reapery" to post which is painted. I am currently assembling and converting up my latest purchases, and will be able to have a nice pic of my Greatswords and Swordsmen which will have a lot of Reaper figures in.
