I've started working on a classic Chaos sorcerer (variously known as Hutk'Nile, Hutk'Nke or Huth'Nke the plague priest) for a painting challenge at the local Warhammer shop. Basic challenge, paint a single GW character or infantry mini by April 1st and customers will vote for the best in store. I don't think there's even any kind of prize involved, but it's a good excuse to get something done and flex my painting muscles a bit.
So, I started with some zenithal priming using spray cans:
Then started on the robes:
The base colour is Tausept Ochre, an old Citadel foundation colour, shaded with some RMS Russet Brown and highlighted with RMS Amber Gold and Ghost White (linen white probably would have suited better, but oh well) using wet blending. I've also added a bit of Clear Purple to the Russet Brown for the deepest shadows to try and get some more interesting colour contrast going on.
I need to do a bit of tidying up of the highlights, but I'm pretty happy with the robes now and I'll move on to the flesh next I think. I'm considering a pallid flesh colour with some bluish tones, or maybe green.
Recently, I've been looking through my collection for something old to get painted up, I came across some very old Citadel dragons (which, in my younger days, I'd either painted or half painted badly) & settled on them. They are:
DRG1 - Red Dragon
DRG2 - Green Dragon
DRG3 - Ice Dragon
DRG4 - Gold Dragon
FF61 - Black Dragon
The plan is to paint them sympathetically in respect of their vintage & base them up nicely but with not too elaborately. So far, I have stripped off as much of the previous paint as possible, some of it still remains & will need some extra effort to remove but I'm not going to worry too much if I cant get it all off - I'll just prime over it. Here's how they look currently.....
It's gonna be a long one, I think...............
I need help sorting out some minis to use use in the Warlord tournament at ReaperCon. I just know that in my mountain of unpainted lead there is at least one Warlord army. I know I will need to use some proxy models and that those need to be other Reaper Minis.
The problem is in some cases I am no longer certain whether some of these guys are a Reaper model or OMM. I could use some help with identification of the minis in the pics that follow:
The army I have the most (authentic Warlord) figs for is Reven. Some of the winged guys above are candidates to proxy as harpies.
Is that a Reaper minotaur? I am pretty sure the ogre is one of Reaper's.
I am hoping the first three are Reaper and not GW beastmen. The rest of these are candidates to proxy as either bugbears or beastmen.
Suggestions for which of the above could be proxied for what and/or model numbers would be very helpful. Also, definitive info that mini-X came from non-Reaper source-Y would be just as good.
I think this is an old Citadel barbarian figure that I finished last night. He was actually a 'paint catcher' ( an old/broken figure I keep around to test paint ideas on ) for a while that I decided to actually finish off. He's a little rough, I did him in a couple hours to get myself back into painting after a few weeks of nothing.
I hope you like him, he'll be serving as a thug in one of my Frostgrave warbands.
I'm also not positive on the manufacturer; please let me know if I'm wrong and I'll correct the post.
I've been beavering away on this classic old Ral Partha White Dragon/Cold Drake recently.
It belongs to a friend of mine who recently bought it. It's always been a favourite sculpt of his (and indeed mine!) & as he is not a miniature painter, I offered to paint it for him.
Here's what happened.......
Now, your probably thinking, "but it's not white or chilly looking at all!". That is true but my friend asked for it to be red as that how he's always seen it & I was happy to oblige with a suitably old school paint job.
Thanks for looking!
