Hordes Nephilim Soldier

I am really jealous of the way you paint the musculature on this mini. Its very nice.  But I think the background looks a bit busy and takes away form the details of your paint job.

Wow that is amazing! Do you plan on playing that on the table or are you just painting it for show? Either way it is stunning!

Outstanding, I really like the sword and metal toning on the front and rear armor.

Excellent work!  As others have said, the muscles are great and I love the detail on the sword.  I wish I had a steady enough hand to get those kinds of results!  :)

      Finally got around to finishing up Ragnor Skysplitter by Privateer Press. Available in the Trollblood Starter Box for Hordes.
       

       

       

       
      Not my best work, but just reached the point where I needed to move on, and there are some parts that I really like.  As always, any C&C would be most welcome!
       
      Cheers,

      As seen in my Lunch Sessions WiP thread, here's the finished product of Borka Kegslayer, the stumbling-drunk warlock for Privateer Press' Trollbloods faction. I painted this guy up as part of a trade with @chaosscorpion , so the mini will be on his way across the state in the near future, unless CS sees something terribly terribly off.
       
      Basing is left to Chaosscorpion to better match his army.
       
      The plaid is a specific tartan, I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm pleased that this mini pushed me into doing plaid, which I'd never done before.

       
      Borka also comes with a kegbearing Pyg. The kegstamp is, like the debossed pattern on the back of Borka's jacket, the symbol of the Trollbloods faction. I also enjoy the ridiculously drunken whelp sitting on top of the barrel.

       
      Chaosscorpion, let me know if there's anything that needs to change before I put them in the mail!

      So I've decided to get back to painting and since trying Hordes I thought painting some Trollblood units would help.
       
      You may have seen Sanael's Lunchtime Painting Session 3. We worked a trade and he is painting my first Trollblood Warlock.  
      So I decided to start with a Heavy Warbeast from the Privateer Press Hordes game, Trollblood Faction.
       
      At this point I have cleaned up mold lines and am considering the painting process. I think I will work on individual pieces and assembly after I'm say 75% on the paint job. The joints will require a fair amount of work at first glance.
       
      Please be critical of the work. I want to get better. I am currently a ReaperCon Bronze level painter looking to get Silver level work.

      Well, I'm not actually painting anything at work today...because I'm not going to work today. Suffice to say, we tried a new Chinese restaurant the other day, and it has not gone well.
       
      BUT! I posted a teaser in my last Lunch Sessions thread, and now I can go ahead and start this one. Prep work is done, so when I do get back into the office I can actually start laying paint. Here's what's going on this time around:
       
      Privateer Press has just started their Minicrate program, a subscription-based monthly "crate" of, well, miniatures. They are all special edition minis available only through the crate subscription. When I saw the first mini they planned to release, I almost got a subscription before realizing I probably wouldn't care overmuch about most of the minis involved past the first...we'll see if I regret that decision later, but the good news is: @chaosscorpion did subscribe, and was willing to work out a trade for the Swamp Siren in exchange for a warlock for his fledgling Trollbloods army.
       
      (if you care to see the mini in question, @Ghool just posted a really lovely painted version)
       
      Chaosscorpion was good enough to send the Swamp Siren over already, so I have her waiting for the day I paint her up...I have plans to do a resin-water base for her eventually.

      And I have procured and prepped Borka Kegslayer:

       
      I do have one specific instruction for this fella: Tartan! Chaosscorpion also provided a specific family tartan for me to replicate:

       
      Now, I've done a good bit of freehand, and a fair number of stripes, but never any actual plaid. So I decided I'd get some practice in first, which is where this preview pic comes in:

       
      This is the backside of one of the new Wizkids Pathfinder unpainted line, from the "Merchants" set. By way of a quick review, these are cheap and nicely detailed. They are pre-prepped and pre-primed, and I was impressed with both the lack of mold lines (still a few, but nothing egregious. For NPCs or townsfolk I'm not too worried) and the complete coverage of the primer. I was surprised to find the primer was every bit as hydrophobic as bare Bonesium, but eventually I got a basecoat down.
       
      I'm planning to paint her dress in plaid, using the Aitken tartan:

      I chose this tartan because it has roughly the same pattern as Chaosscorpion's, although in different colors. It's likely I'm overthinking the process, but I want to be as accurate as I can when I get to the plaid on Borka.
       
      So that's where I am at this point. I likely won't do any further painting until Wednesday (there's an office Halloween thing tomorrow), but I've got a bit of a start!

      One for my Patrons that is the first model from PP's Minicrate subscription model service.
      This one was a fun paint, and a pretty nice model. We'll see if they can maintain it!
