And some other stuff I've been working on in the meantime:

 

Made this guy for a friend, who's wife loves da Rats, in trade for some of his other models for my son's army

And then, because I had left over parts, I ended up making this lil guy to go with my own converted Techseer/Grey Seer/Dominus:

Trying to do up a load of these guys from the Battle of Pelennor fields box (GW Lord of the Rings starter box set) - just to table top, so's to actually play the game at some point before the end of the Era. Saving the fun ones for later (calvary and the big Nazghul). The models are a lot closer to true 28mm scale and so a bit smaller than I've gotten used to painting tbh. 20181223_143213.thumb.jpg.2a5fb07071ef0a30f0b199a14160ba6b.jpg

Is it bad when you get distracted from the distraction? Sigh Hobby ADHD

 

But gotta create when the Muse is handy, she's fickle like that.

 

Some time ago I'd done a twitter contest for peeps into da Green boyz and anyway a couple prizes were conversions I would make. Finished one the last like two days. Haven't started other yet, but I got some ideas... 


 

 

Try to get them vaguely in order, hopefully didn't repeat any sometimes taking pics on phone, using google to update to my comp is confusing. 

To explain a bit, my friend's building a Blood Axe themed 40k Ork army. This is stuff like Kommandos and "sneeksy" types. I'd been wanting to convert one of the GW new Baby Knights (Knight Armiger) for a while. And someone on instagram, I totally space who, had already done the open cockpit idea, which I promptly stole. The rest of the model is bits from various GW sources, plasticard, wire, and greenstuff. The idea of the head and the wires is a little bit like the grots and Meks found this thing all blown up and decided to refurbish it. But being a bit unversed in Imperium technology, they had to ... make some adjustments. Like extra wires to make the head work (where the brain or whatever of the machine would be). I had to move the Grots arm a bit and use my hot air gun to melt the hand about the wires, then place him on a tiny scaffold thing so he could be seen above the open cockpit. Honestly, bending the wires, lacing them together and fixing the grot in place took up the majority of  time with this build!! Everytime I moved one thing right, something else moved out of place ><

 

Anyway the Blood Axes actually use camoflage (although their ideas vary wildly from what humans would consider 'working') and I thought hey I have all these bits from t he GW Trees, wouldn't it be funny, kind of like those cartoons you see, where the character's holding a small shrub or branch and is all "you can't see me!", if one of these Baby Knights was all "You can't see me! I'm a Tree!" anyway that's where I was going with it. I'll admit many late nights were involved.

 

Anyway pic spam:

When you mentioned using the G.W. trees, I picture a tree with a pair of Ork legs sticking out the bottom sneaking along.

The branches & leaves are the best use I have seen for the flat foliage. GREAT idea & BEAUTIFULLY crafted!

      This was originally not one a mini I planned to paint.  However, I got two in an auction lot and the base fits well with one of my few base stamps (in this case, the Happy Seppuku Stone Shore stamp) so... why not?
       

      (click for larger versions)
       
      This is the state she is in now.  She's been primed and a thin coat of Brown Liner (1 part Wash Medium, 1 part Brown Liner, 1 part water) has been painted on top to bring out details.  (I found a mold line I missed on the side of her knee and relined her legs with a thicker coat of Brown Liner, because I forgot the original mix.  The thicker mix is not likely to obscure detail when painting but it does make it harder to see in these pictures.  Oops.)
       
      (Note to self: Get a non-grey background for these pictures in the future.)
       
      I've decided her doublet, pants, boots, and gloves are leather.  Her doublet and pants are stitched in the front and are worn over more normal clothes.  (Both her doublet and pants have obvious stitching in the front and the alternative is undesirable in a family friendly environment.)  Her shirt includes her loose poofy sleeves.  (Which are probably good for a rogue since they mask the shape of her arms.)  I believe the most interesting detail missing from her store page is her knife holster on her left leg.
       
      I wasn't entirely sure what to use for colors so I did a mockup using my paint program.  The knife in her holster will not be visible from this side but I included them to get an idea for how they would look.

      (click for a larger version)
       
      The current colors are: (all paints are Reaper MSP or Bones)
      Skin: Youthful Flesh Hair: Blond Hair Doublet, boots, and knife handles: Ruddy Leather Pants and gloves: Nut Brown Belt, stitches, and other leather accents: Leather Brown Shirt and sleeves: Dark Elf Skin Blades: This is one of the colors from the Blade Steel swatch Floor: Dungeon Grey  
      The focuses for this mini are her face, her hair, textures (leather and wood), and NMM for the metal bits.  Let's see how this goes.

      Been working pretty steadly though bad about keeping up pics!
       



       
      Did these guys (mostly done) in January. They are GW minis from the Battle at Pelennor Fields Lords of the Ring starter set.
       
      I started on these guys closer to end of the month, as well:
       
      They're for my Luna Wolves, first guy is the Terminator sarge (which I'm painting along with some other terminators from the Burning of Prospero box set)

       
       
      This guy is a resin cast Apothecary from FW I bought off ebay - he's got a pretty bad mold slip along one leg, but otherwise is a really cool model. I'm trying to paint his little vials and bottles to be more realistic like glass full of ... well, something. He has a lot of detail on him!

      I can stop buying orcs at any time, I promise...
       
      But for now I have a few boxes of plastic Uruk Hai from GW.

      Here they are being glued to washers
       
      And some test models, testing both a color scheme and different primers (as you can see).   Basecoated 
       
      Then washed

       
      The pikes: Basecoated 

      Then washed

      Started working on this guy today for one of my player.
      Since I'm a "newbie" and have no experience in working with skin, I was wondering if Reaper's Flesh Wash would look ok with the Elf Flesh base-coat for the skin.
       
      For the hair, the player want him to be carrot-top with a touch of grey. The could prove to be interesting. 
       
      I'm also looking for suggestions for his clothing. almost anything is fair game, all though the campaign setting is in a desert/desolation area.
