  1. I've never been much of a fan of GW. I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....). And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two). But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever. So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre. Took a look around and caught sight of this: Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction. Or whatever the different groups are called. I thought, "Those are pretty cool! Flying stuff. Steampunky. I like." Then we left. And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw). Then we met back up on Monday. And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships. So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap). So, this is what they look like when you open the box: Oye! Lots of bits. Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive). Options that presumably follow rules. Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play. But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW. So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.

    Star Wars Characters Part 1

    Hey all, I've begun the process of re-basing some old WOTC Star Wars metal characters that I painted a while back. I've added a little height to each base, and now they will be more consistent with the new Star Wars Legion models. I hope you enjoy them. The first is the Cerean Jedi. This guy was my character in the Living Force campaign for many years. Next up is the Human Male Fringer. Last, for now, is a Warhammer 40K model that I painted up do be a human soldier.

    GW Broodlord yrmgl style.

    This is fromthe Genestealer cult boxed set with a little help from some venomthropes spares. Did this for my youngest for her nid army. She insists that each unit is a different colour set and guess who gets to paint them.
  4. This will be mostly Oathmark Goblins but I've also got some of Tre's Bones orcs for the bigger warriors and also some Bones Ogres that will serves as trolls. By LotR inspired I mostly mean that they won't be bright green. I've already painted some of GW's Fenrisian Wolves to be the Wargs. The blond one and the little black one were inspired by my brother's dogs. My nephews totally missed the joke when they fought against these guys in our D&D game. So disappointing... I'm trying to work out how to do the orcs skin. I'm trying to match the Green Ocher scheme I used on my 10mm orcs. First attempt: Second attempt was using Sepia liner as the shade color. It also has brighter highlights but the gloss sealer basically simulates that in the first photo.
  5. So I figured I'd just start a WIP thread, rather than clutter up the forum with unnecessary extras. I hate disorder (although you wouldn't be able to tell that from looking at my workspace! LOL) This week's been mostly working on Gremlins from Malifaux, I have Somer, Slophaulers and Skeeters almost done. Still waiting on flying stand order to come in for Skeeters. Somer's the Bayou Boss, and I have other Bayou Gremlins in my pile of to-be-done but we'll see how long it takes me to get to them. Betrayal at Calth (BAC) is a GW box set of Space Marines that's both a board game and a kind of starter set for Horus Heresy 30k (which takes place before the Warhammer 40k sci fi - just for those who don't follow this). My LGS is doing an escalation league for 30k, and is running a contest for painting the box set. it's about 38 miniatures I think. Really hoping I win, even if I don't play the game because the prize is a free Horus Heresy book of our choice And I love books, even more than I love models so books about models... I'm THERE! Anyway here's my pics (except for the BAC which is still currently in its box lol) ^^ Slophaulers - because they, wait for it, haul slop Just finishing base really on these guys Somer - almost done, working on base now and just need cloth highlighted I think ^^ Skeeters (mosquitos) - trying out colour scheme, pretty much still basecoating although I did highlight their backs, wings and eyes (which still need glaze) Also trying to work on getting more lighting in my room for my light box :( so maybe my pictures will come out better =/ C&C is always welcome :) It helps me get better!

    Tau Killteam (GW)

    Here are some Tau (or T'au) killteam members I painted them up for my hubby so he and I can play :D
  7. Felltyde

    OG, GW Chaos Warrior

    I just got finished with a 12 hour drive and needed to paint to unwind...I had this old GW chaos warrior and decided to do him up for an NPC in an upcoming game. Happy with it considering my condition. Lol

    Talos (DE/Drukhari GW model)

    Painted this for my son's army - have to say he LOVES to give me challenges >< First it was the skin, 'it'd be cool to have a lot of blue veins under a light skin'... Um how about just blue?? lol And of course his whole them is based on Dune and Arrakis, with the troops looking (vaguely) like Fremen, complete with blue in blue eyes So, the carapace on this was inspired by sandworms, and the little jars and stuff are supposed to be full of melange, with the skin imbued by it. Not entirely happy with the stripes, tbh, I wanted a more organic/grown look to them but eh. Live and learn.
  9. Haven't had a ton of time to paint this summer but I've managed to get a few things done. I've also been working on my basing. I plan on going back and adding some OSL to Damien but saving that for another day. The Familiar is from GW, cira 1994 and was a fun little guy to paint. C&C welcome and encouraged.

    Well havent been online much as we just had to repalce my comp, meanwhile been working on my 30K Horus Heresy army - loyalist Luna Wolves, lead by Loken I took an army shot, tho still have work to do, mainly vehicles, but overall infantry is done. The colours are Vallejo medium grey, Reaper Weathered Stone (mixing up fr the grey, three layers to weathered stone), HL'd with Ghost White, one of my fave colours, ever

    Space Marines (Marine Teal 30K)

    An actually local FLGS has opened in my home town. Being a pretty small town, the main things going on seem to be Magic and 40K. Not having a 40K army I had a look around and decided I liked the Horus Heresy marines. Problem is, Marines are a bit of a blank canvas and I don't have an artists eye for color so I tossed some different paints on a couple figs. The one I liked the best was based on Marine Teal. I think the basic color scheme is sound but I have some questions about some of the accessories. I'm not sure what to do with the bolter. I think more teal and brass would be too much but other things I've tried didn't quite work. The blue on it now isn't bad but I think it could be better. I did the lava base mostly because I wanted an excuse to use the Basius pads I got from their Kickstarter. From what I remember from the Jen & Ann's DVD section on color theory the warm colors might bring too much focus from the mini itself? Any thoughts on that?

    Stegadon with Aztec Crew by Glitterwolf

    I painted an OOP GW metal Stegadon for my Lost World Project and added Foundry Aztec Crew. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&amp;page=123 First some pics against neutral background And then some against my Jungle Photo Board.
  13. https://wizkids.com/...games-workshop/ Pretty much what it says on the tin. I'd be pretty shocked to see GW allow Wizkids to produce miniatures, unless they're way out of scale with GW's stuff, but it'll be interesting to see what kind of board games they come up with. I'm also wondering if they're not looking for someone to take the place of the recently expired partnership with Fantasy Flight Games.

    Crimson Fists Sergeant

    I do finish a miniature on occasion. This one was the proof of concept. Now to finish three more for this squad (one is already done), then the rest of the force.

    Skeleton Regiment

    This is a 20 man (well, 17 with a unit filler) unit of skeletons that I'm working on for possible use in Kings of War. It's composed of figures by a lot of different manufacturers including Reaper, Ral Partha, GW, Grenadier, Mage Knight, and WOTC. I'm using all the different makers and scales to try and make an interesting looking unit composed of more than just human remains. I am an equal opportunity, non racially biased necromancer, after all. This will be kind of a slow burn project; I'm not in any major rush to finish these for a game any time soon. This will be something to work on in between other projects. There will be conversions, and different paint jobs for the skellies; again in an effort to make a more interesting looking group. Here's the unit all together: What would be more interesting; making individual show off threads as I finish 2 or 3 figures, or just putting the finished figures in here and then doing a show off for the whole unit once it's complete?

    GW WH40K Grot (space goblin)

    Grublicks idly scratched his butt. He was still in his room/cell, waiting for the crew of the trader vessel to decide whether to take him on as their newest crew member or not. He really didn't understand the hold up; hadn't he surrendered to them, and happily sold out the raiders that he had been with? Back home, that would've made him a junior officer at the very least. It was always hard to figure some of the other races different customs, though. Thinking back, it hadn't been a very hard choice; the raiders had underestimated the strength of the vessel they attacked, and got wrecked good and proppa for it. He was pretty sure the raiders had been cheating him anyway; he always seemed to get the worst of the work details, like cleaning the kitchen. On the other hand, he'd miss some of them. He was always able to convince Nentarc to trade work details; Grublicks was convinced that the man had been soft between the ears to so easily agree to cleaning the kitchens instead of working down in the deep sumps. If Grublicks was careful and maybe a little bit lucky, he could always find a couple of sump eels to snack on. He wondered if there were any sump eels on board this ship as he scratched his butt again. I've been on a little bit of a sci-fi kick recently, and decided that all of these one off figures I've acquired over the years might make a pretty interesting starship crew, so I've been trying to tie them together with little bits of story. Whether they'll ever see use in a game is anyone's guess, although I certainly hope so. Thanks for looking.
  17. About a month ago I was at a birthday party for one of my friends and it was at that party I had an interesting conversation with another friend that lead to the creation of this miniature. This particular friend enjoys playing tabletop games and has recently been looking into playing Warhammer 40K. He already plays a few different GW games, so he is very aware of what he's getting into. So while doing some research he came across fan art of the Imperial Guardsmen with fish heads, which he quickly pulled up on his phone and showed me. We both laughed and agreed that would be a ton of fun to play. After that conversation I knew exactly what I wanted to give him for his birthday which was only a month away. Now a smart man would have taken that newly acquired knowledge and immediately started building. I however am not a smart man and I completely forgot about it until a few days before his party. So I scrambled and quickly painted a Cadien I had leftover from a previous project, it wasn't a Guardsman but I figured he'd love it anyway. I still had to find a fish though and after four dollar stores I finally found the perfect fish head. Finding the head was a godsend but I still had work to do. Over the course of three days I removed the head of the fish, primed it, painted it, and pinned it into the Cadien figure's neck. Then I sealed the figure and based it with some rocks and grass. I finished this piece about three hours before the party. I don't really base my figures, so this is my first truly "complete" miniature and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I'd love to hear what you think, I won't be able to alter this piece but critiques are welcome.

    GW Gangs of Commarragh set

    These are actually mostly a co-op effort, I helped but my son did a lot of the work :) I did the decals and colours on the little flyers, he did washing, drybrushing on most all the rest. He wants them too look like they're from Arrakis, or a Dune-like planet. Hence the colour scheme - more of a Fremen look. And the Drybrushing fits in pretty well making most of them look 'dusty' as they would' from a desert world.

    GW Grots/Gretchin

    Haven't been able to get my lights out, I want to do some close up of some of these guys but here is their group shots. If/when I do, I'll update this thread :) I did want to do a bit more detail on them but honestly I'm suffering from can't see syndrome so I left it for now. Maybe when my eyes improve I can get some more done on them.
  20. Yesterday I went to my best friend's birthday party. For anyone who saw my post about Song of Blades and Heroes this is the same friend I've been playing that with. He probably wouldn't have had a birthday party if not for his girlfriend but I think he had a good time. She had the great idea to have a gaming party (specifically tabletop) since lately with a little push from me he's been getting into them. Between my wife and I we have quite a few games. In the end we brought Song of Blades and Heroes, What Do You Meme, Disturbed Friends, Star Realms, Munchkin, and by special request even though we knew we weren't going to play it Risk. These were just the games we brought though, almost everyone brought at least one game. Oddly enough the only games that were actually played were Song of Blades and Heroes, Twister, Chess, and Friday the 13th on XBox. So it was a pretty eclectic game night. Now we're getting to the meat of this post. Since I was bringing a miniature skirmish game I decided to bring all my painted miniatures to show to a friend who is thinking about painting. When I pulled out all of my completed pieces he insisted I show them to one of his friends who was also at the party. I showed off my work and ended up talking with this guy for about an hour. We talked painting, Wargamming, role playing games, and what we were currently playing. As we talked he admired the GW Cadiens I had finished. He told me years ago he had played Warhammer 40K. This of course lead to a long discussion about GW. The one thing that kept coming up though was his desire to play again but his reluctance to do so. I've met quite a few old 40K players recently and I've noticed that so many of them would love to play again but don't. I know 40K is expensive and time consuming but I've never encountered a game with some many old players unwilling to return. This game seems to have cornered the market on players unwilling to return. Is it just the expense and time consumption keeping them away? Are there any other games out there with this same problem?
  21. These were supposed to be quick paints but somehow I still managed to take near 3 weeks to finish them. Really like the Bandits but thought they needed a little ranged fire power, so I added a couple of old GW archers to the gang. Now they just need a catchy name...

    GW Ork Lootas Warhammer 40k

    Pretty sure I didn't post this already... been sick as all get out. Just took some better pics, still with phone though, but hopefully they show ok:
  23. Lord of the Dish Pit

    Coffee Dwarf GW KIng's Wall

    A terrain piece from the Warhammer Battle of Skull Pass Box set. The coffee mug is from a Marx toy factory dollhouse set, attached with sewing thread. The center shield bears a freehanded icon of the Mug Guard.
  24. Lord of the Dish Pit

    Coffee Dwarf Caffine Canon

    It took longer than I expected to get these guys done, but I'm happy with how they came out. They're part of the Warhammer Battle for Skull Pass set that I bought in 2007. The base is a bit uneven as when I glued down the back of a blister pack for the stonework it split open and I covered it in with gravel. In the future I'm going to have to use something else as it really didn't register as "stone" to my eye, but the cannon covers most of it at least. The powder barrel is a small Reaper bones barrel I've had for awhile, the cannon balls are 25mm airsoft ammo and the coffee pot is from an old Marx toy factory dollhouse set. Vastly overscale until one thinks about the thirst of the average dwarf! I had the idea of adding some thing for each dwarf, ammo for the hauler, gun powder for the engineer, and coffee for the swabber with the mug. The aforementioned gap filling. Base of craft paint Pavement with Stormy Gray and Rainy Gray drybrushed over it. The crew in Maxwell House colors. The swabber looks to be well on his way to caffinated bliss!

    Greentide (2017 Army in Review) GW Orkz

    Most of these were painted in 2017, I believe, though I don't have track of it exactly. I organize my WIP pics in folders by date, but I gave up keeping 'count' so to speak as it interferes with actually painting and modeling! (If you want to see a particular unit you can probably just search this forum, I believe I've done individual Show Off threads for all these guys). Anyway so here's my current pride and joy :D all my boyz in their glory etc. Hope you enjoy!
