Wait... They're rebooting Gorkamorka too?  That's... Kinda cool, given the concept... 

 

It looks like - they've been doing that with *everything* it seems like, Adeptus Titanticus, Kill team, rogue trader... I'm personally waiting for Mordheim, because I hope they keep up their current approach of adding terrain for stuff (plus, MORDHEIM!!!! <3)

Yeah, rebooting Mordheim would be nice...  Provided they don't try and do the rules across several books ^_^  Warmaster and Epic 40k would be a nice touch too, but we'll see on that front, since they didn't seem to get anywhere near the following the 28mm heroic scale stuff had.  It would definitely be interesting to see how they'd tackle Mordheim terrain though!

Some Work In Progress on my Ghaz:

I think he's almost ready for primer!!

 

And I started gap filling on this lovely Dragon - I can't remember which one it is :( only trouble with the KS stuff hehe I'm *pretty* sure it's "young red dragon" but I may be misremembering

Yes!! Tis - I finally sat down and went through the pics and found him. Tyvm :D He's a lovely one too. Although I'm not doing him as a copper one but a red one (probably why it was stuck in my head as a red dragon)

 

Did some more work on him. I'm trying something a bit new (for me), actually trying to keep highlights in their proper place. It's tough as I tend to get confused as  I go, where what goes. So I started off with a kind of hatch marking to both mark shadows, and to give the scales some texture (like I'd done a bit on my Talos earlier).

Been working really hard at this guy, it's a lot more involved than I usually do (kinda used to more TT, army level tbh). And I think I may have finally discovered how to properly do highlights! I never could seem to do it the 'traditional' way exactly, I always lost track of where the highlight was, where it was going, what was I painting again?! So I went back to my hatch marks - ie lines. For some reason, it's a lot more understandable to me, how to build up colour that way, as well as being able to control it better. To explain, for those who maybe don't get where I"m going with this: instead of covering the  whole area with one colour, and then slowly adding more colour to the highlight area, I essentially draw lines. I started with the dark green, to show shadows, leaving it off where it will be a highlight. Then I moved to my dark red and covered the area. The thing I like about this is while it's quite time consuming, it's also very controllable. It's a lot harder to mess up, and a lot easier to correct since the colour's built up quite slowly. And for whatever reason, it's much more immediately obvious to me, what needs to go where. So yeah I'm liking it a lot. Definitely not something I'll probably do for my TT armies because of the time involved, but I'm quite happy so far with how it's coming out on the dragon.

Have a few more recent pics:

 

I'm currently working on his wings, trying to fill out the rest of his body and really start more highlights on the brightest areas.

      Well, I decided to start another WIP.  This one a sort of Halloween theme.  The Vampress  Siobhana, Vampiress by reaper.  Got some work done on her awhile ago and decided in the spirit of the season to try and finish her up.  Unfortunately I couldn't remember exactly the method I painted up the face, so I got as close as I could on the legs and hands.  Here's where she is at the moment.
       


      As always, any C&C is always welcome.

      Forests in fantasy roleplaying games are dark places, full of secrets. With this project, we bring the Old Margreve to the 5th Edition of the world's most popular RPG. The Margreve is an ancient, enchanted forest that defends itself from those who come to cut its timber, poach its creatures, or steal its magic. Within its borders the Old Ways are strong, the word of the druids carries great weight, and griffons, dragons, and stranger creatures nest and hunt, undisturbed by humans, dwarves, or other lordlings.  
      Until your adventuring party shows up. Then things get really interesting.
      The Margreve Kickstarter offers three main elements: 
      1) the Tales of the Old Margreve adventure campaign hardcover for the GM, with adventures from levels 1 to 10
      2) a Margreve Player's Guide softcover book of new player options, including new races, druid and ranger subclasses and tools, backgrounds, and forest-themed spells.
      3) (if unlocked) a set of thick cardboard standups, the Margreve Pawns, which are similar to those created for Tome of Beastsand the Creature Codex. Here is a small sample of what that would look like; we anticipate producing 150 to 200 pawns (depending on stretch goals).
      Together with some book-expanding stretch goals, this project provides new deep-forest character options and a full sequence of adventures to draw adventurers into the wilderness and keep them on their toes.
       
      WHY KICKSTART THIS?
      Initially we debated this as a softcover adventure collection, but we soon realized that it was large enough and compelling enough to make into a hardcover volume playable in 5th Edition fantasy campaigns, together with a player supplement. Why not go big?
      Kobold Press is doing something a little different with its digital offerings this time. We're putting our effort into the two print books, and possibly a custom set of pawns—and digitally, full sets of virtual tabletop (VTT) files. That means that we'll have the Old Margreve adventures and source material available on Roll20 and on Fantasy Grounds shortly after the hardcover and softcover volumes ship. 
      With terrific map management, full suites of digital tokens, pre-set monster stats, and more, virtual tabletops make it easier than ever to just sit down and play. The VTT packages for the Old Margreve will be extensive and include everything provided in the print edition—plus the flexibility and speed of online play. We're partnering directly with Roll20 and Fantasy Gournds, two of the leading VTT companies, to make these digital versions complete and powerful.
       
      Contributors
      The designers on this project include lead designer Matt Corley plus contributing designers Dan Dillon, Jon Sawatsky, James Introcaso, and Wolfgang Baur. 
      They build on earlier Margreve work by Richard Pett, Ben McFarland, Tim & Eileen Connors, Dan Voyce, Michael Furlanetto, Wolfgang Baur, and others.
      Shipping costs from the US to anywhere outside North America have risen sharply in recent years, so we are once again partnering with groups in Canada, in the EU, and likely in Australia (depending on the volume of backers there), and if so then Kobold Press will pay customs and import duties for those packages. 
      Our best guess for those Canada-friendly and EU-friendly costs right now are roughly $22 shipping for Canada and roughly $30-and-a-bit for shipping to the EU. We do not have an Australia estimate yet.
      To calculate shipping to your location from the US, you can use the US Postal Service calculator and assume a Medium size flat rate box:  https://postcalc.usps.com/

      So I am reopening what will be a long and fun wip stuff :D hopefully !
       
      For a start ( and to cut from my massive darkness dwarfs..actually still 3 to finish the serie I've got ), I have this nice Runewars Wraiths in my figures stock and that will be great opportunity to airbrush a bit !

       
      And I just got them primed for now , using Vallejo grey primer..since they do have pretty light color regarding the box I did not want use any black for that part.

      I've been wanting to paint a bust since I got back from ReaperCon. I missed my chance to pick up Julie Guthrie's beautiful sculpt from the convention, so I did a bit of research. I had already picked up a larger scale mini from FeR Miniatures at Scale 75's table this year, so I started there. In addition to some more intricately detailed stuff, FeR also had a few busts that seemed a bit more on the simple side, so I grabbed them. They're both in the "Portraits From the Middle Ages" line. I started with this one, the Saxon Huscarl, Hastings, 1066.
       
      I started off by doing the face, using Reaper's HD flesh quadrilogy(?) I mixed them to create midtones, but it still came out less smooth than I had hoped. I think it looks ok for a first go, but I definitely have so much room for improvement. I'm definitely going to do a bit of touching up on the face.
       
      I did the eyes next, and I really like the way that they turned out! They give him such a ruthless look! After this, I base coated the chainmail in dark grey mixed with some black, and then I left it there for the night. I'm going to try and do the metals as non-metallic, so we'll see how that goes!
