  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.

    Steampunk People Part 1

    Was going to be good and get some half-painted stuff finished, but I couldn't resist the steam-powered siren song of my Twisted minis. Since I'm going to be working on these for the foreseeable future, I thought I'd WIP them in batches:- In this first batch, you've got two Urkins (Porker and Bookworm) at the front and (from left to right) Sowerberry, Gentlefolk Blacksmith and Gretel at the back. Starting with the Blacksmith, not pictured - his chimney backpack. So far I've basecoated his body in Bronze and given it a Brownshade Wash. Next time, I go crazy with a drybrush.

    Andre Durand 80005

    Dylan Blackzorn looked around at the engine room with an annoyed expression on his face. The raiders had caused a hell of a mess in there. A fair amount of damage, too from the looks of things. He signaled for the others with him to follow his lead; they needed to be sure there weren't any surprises waiting for them before they got to work bringing the various systems back online. He flexed his fingers inside the energy glove on his left hand. In addition to being a great asset in the hand to hand combat they'd had to engage in with the raiders, it was also a powerful tool. With it, he'd be able to engage with the ship's engineering computer and ascertain what repairs were going to be necessary, as well as to dramatically shorten the time those repairs would take. Time to get to it, he thought. The sooner they were out of this sector, the better. He really does have a face, and it looks pretty decent in person....sigh. I'll have to go back and try to make it stand out a little more.
  4. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/coolminiornot/the-world-of-smog-rise-of-moloch/description A Victorian, adventure board game taking place in an alternative England where magic and technology have taken an extraordinary turn!
  5. Presenting Porker and Library Owl:- Porker:- Library Owl:- A pair of Urkins who are part of the Dickensian faction of the game Twisted, they're also in my Steampunk People WIP thread. They were a lot of fun to paint, which is good because I have quite a few more to do! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Gentlefolk Blacksmith

    Presenting the Gentlefolk Blacksmith, a heavy-hitting Servant of the Engine from the game Twisted. He's part of my Steampunk People WIP thread. Been looking forward to painting this one for ages (mainly because he resembles Tick-Tock from Return to Oz, that's also why he's mostly bronze). Unfortunately, I did attach his chimney a little skewed, but I think I'm liking how it looks. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Witch-hunter Gretel

    Presenting Gretel (and her monkey Hansel) a revenge-seeking witch-hunter and part of the Servants of the Engine faction from the game Twisted. She can also be found in my Steampunk People WIP thread. Super happy with how this one turned out, particularly little Hansel! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  8. ThirstyBob

    Tinkerer

    Working on the base for this guy, thought I'd put it up. Put sand down and then painted over it black, trying to make it look like a river of lava (DON'T ASK WHY THEMING-WISE, IT JUST SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME.) Still planning on messing with it, running some red and darker shades through the yellow and maybe some red cracks through the black.
  9. These are what I finished painting this year, a year that was somewhat abbreviated by world events. Really, this is what I painted in the last six months, since political dismay kept me from the miniatures table for approximately eight months after the last US Presidential election. This year I painted my first Reaper Warlord figures who were also my first oversized werewolves, 77754 the Rageclaw Slayer, and 77755, Aislinn, Shadow Tracker. Nearly everything I painted was for the White Wolf World of Darkness and Exalted.

  10. Been looking forward to working on some more Twisted minis for a long time (basically ever since I crushed Nightingale trying to assemble her, and realized I was just too clumsy to work with fragile resin minis any more), I'm starting with Bill Sykes and Bullseye:- Weren't as hard to assemble as I feared they might be, just letting the primer dry overnight and I can start painting!

    80031: Decker Lugstampf

    I don't think I ever posted this one. He was a Bones speedpaint for a villain. I didn't make a WIP, sorry.
  12. LINK: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2025694581/naughty-gears The Steampunk Busts Girls by Scale75. A innovative project for collectors, painters and even gamers with desire to paint. Large picture of the individual ladies behind the spoiler:
  13. Looks like Twisted is coming out with a kickstarter! AND IT'S LIVE! We've seen quite a few of them painted up on the forum, very cool steampunk figures. The company is owned/operated by Sebastian Archer who also owns/sculpts for his other brand (Guild of Harmony). I've ordered a few GoH figures in the past and Sebastian always gets the figures out from Australia to the US very quickly. Some of the figures from Twisted - EXCITING NEWS! The countdown is now on: we have set a date for the launch of the Twisted Kickstarter campaign - February 16th! Note it down in your diaries and stay tuned for more information about what will be included in the campaign. As well as launching the Twisted rules and adding lots and lots of new miniatures, we have some very exciting surprises in store for you. All will be revealed soon - we can't wait!

    The Gardening Dwarf

    Yet another Wolsung mini, this time it's the Dwarf Gardener, he's fully equipped to deal with any young'uns that stray on to his lawn. Had a lot of fun painting this one, he's just so unusual! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  15. This was painted as my gift to @Talae for the Summer Exchange 2017. The criteria of interest was steampunk or water, with a demonstration of NMM. The Automaton fit the NMM criteria well, and is mostly steampunk, so I ran with in. The orange parts are supposed to be copper. This is the first time I've tried a NMM copper and used a Scale75 NMM set. Thoughts? Comments and Critiques welcome.

    Roberto Vendetta - Halfling Hitman

    Presenting Roberto Vendetta, part of the Halfling crime family faction from the (possibly defunct) game Wolsung by Micro Arts Studio. Extremely pleased with how this little guy turned out, I honestly think he's one of my best paint jobs to date. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Ogre Gangster

    Presenting an Ogre Gangster, part of the Halfling Mafia faction (the Ogres do the heavy lifting) from the game Wolsung by Micro Arts Studio. Really pleased with the job I did on him (He's got eyes! Always feel extra happy when I can do their eyes), just wish my stupid Vallejo varnish hadn't made him so shiny in the wrong places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Another Ogre Gangster

    Presenting another Ogre Gangster from the game Wolsung by Micro Art Studio. Casting wasn't too good on this one, he's got pits, cracks and rough patches all over him, but I still think I did a decent job. He's also my final Ogre Gangster (I've still got a few Halfling Gangsters to paint though), so here's a group-shot:- As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly appreciated.
  19. This past week I completed the last of the four hero figures from the Bones 3 Kickstarter Wild West Wizard of Oz set: the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Lion, and Dorothy & Toto. (Still have the Wicked Witch and the Flying Monkey to do) This was a really fun set to do, and it had some interesting interpretations of the classic characters. Also, I was lucky enough to get a chance to already use them as my gang in a post-apocalyptic game of "This is Not a Test". For the full painting articles and more photos, please see my Bones painting blog linked in my signature.
  20. Working on something new, presenting Brokk Grungsson, Lord-Magnate of Barak-Nar, The Paragon of Prosperity from the City of the First Sunrise. He's a Dwarf Sky-Pirate who comes in lots of pieces:- Lots and lots of pieces. Normally, I'd build various sub-assemblies for ease of painting before final assembly. But with the way the flying harness is built around Brokk it's looking like I might have to paint the individual pieces as he goes together. This is as much as I dare assemble for now. Most of Brokk and the legs and shoulders of his harness. And then the painting began. Going against the official scheme (as usual) I've gone for red armour (Scarlett Red > Brownshade Wash > Blood Red > 1:1 Blood Red/Orange Red).

    Lady Mechanika

    I just started working on this figure from Scale75. It's officially called Jessica Thunderhawk, but the sculpt (and box art) are based on a piece of art from the Comicon Challenge 2014 that is meant to be Lady Mechanika. I wasn't immediately familiar with the character, but some quick googling and I found out she's the mean character in a series of steampunk comics. I like the original art, but since the box art version already matches it, I thought I should do something a little different. I took a look at some of the other art surrounding Lady Mechanika and used that for inspiration. To see how the colors looked I began with a quick base coat After that I spent some time cleaning up the stripes on her pants, although that will get a lot more work when I start to shade and highlight. Then I went to work on her face and skin. For a female figure I tried to take a softer approach to the shading on her face. Major features can still get lots of contrast, but smaller lines and features really should be downplayed. Emphasizing the lines under the eyes or from the nose to the mouth will make the figure look more masculine. The same goes for painting children. Still a long way to go, but I'm happy with her so far.
  22. I bought the Steampunk Wizard of Oz set for my daughter out of the Bones 3 KS. Naturally, I am doing it last minute for her birthday Tuesday, the 18th. So, here's the plan: A. Assemble them all on unfinished but sealed silver maple wood cuts using usual building materials. B. Basecoat them with simple but muted colors. C. Apply Sepia Wash and paint as needed to simulate a "colorized movie" look. Here's what we got so far: Dorothy and Toto on a Compass Rose beginning their adventure. The witch commanding her monkey. Dorothy glued in and brick road applied. Lion and brick road applied. Enjoy and stay tuned. More to come.

    Forge Guardian - an ub3r Show-off

    I finally was able to get the time and - quite frankly - the painting bug biting me to get this done for Jasper the 2nd, who won my Artist page 500 likes random contest drawing. This is the figure he picked out of my collection and I'm going to mail him out this week. It's a Forge Guardian from Rackham Confrontation, dwarf of Tir-Na-Bor. Metal figure, at 28mm scale. It was actually quite fun to paint up. The base is a pre-made base that I painted to be a stained/rusted metallic from the old Stonehaven Dwarves kickstarter. Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated, thanks for looking!
  24. Finally remembered to post these up. I got minibart's name for the Spring Exchange. I'd been hoping to get him since he sent me an awesome fig last year. He was looking for something Victorian and/or Steampunk. I went through a number of idea about what I wanted to do, wasted far too much time on elaborate plans, and finally settled on a slightly simpler plan, and still managed to be late sending it..... With the Lord and Dame I wanted to tie them together with some cross over of colour. Hopefully that was somewhat successful. The Lord came out fiarly well, I though. I'm not sure if what I was trying with the hat came across as well as it could of. I was really happy with the vest, though it may not show up well in the picture. I used Ruby Red to highlight Gothic Crimson, which gave it a nice satiny shine. Apparently all my shots of his back are blurry, and he's on a different continent now. But dark grey coat of light grey pants, not too exciting anyway. The Dame is a lovely figure and a joy to paint. I had a great time painting her, other that realizing that I'm missing at least one paint in each green triad I wanted to use.... And whenever I paint anything that could be considered Steampunk-y I love to throw in a West Wind Infernium Hound.
  25. My husband is running a game of more-or-less-Exalted (2nd ed.) set in the more-or-less World of Darkness (2nd ed.) ("But rather less than more," as W.S. Gilbert wrote -- it has been given the complete Neil Gaiman-Alan Moore historico-mythological treatment, about which I can expound elsewhere and another time, 'cos it's a really fun game). One of the PCs is playing a mage of the Sons of Ether who has taken to proffering therapy to would-be reformed werewolves and vampires, who Exalted as a solar of the Twilight caste. If this means nothing to you, don't worry about it. He's a modern-day Scottish mage who has suddenly gotten an infusion of even more magey power. This is my standard starting point, the mini glued to a base, primed white, and washed with Burnt Umber.
