Recommended Posts



Not much painting going on, the cold weather is really affecting my hands this year (I hate getting older), but I did finish the Blacksmith:-

Now the competition is over, lets see if I can get back to painting Gretel without my brain freaking out.


Did a little bit today:-




Got her magic utility belt finished.

The belt itself is Cork Brown, the wands are Bonewhite, there's also a couple Warlord Purple potion bottles, a 1:1 Cork Brown/Ochre Yellow broom head and a Scarlett Red spell book (it's supposed to look like one of the journals from Gravity Falls, basically dark red with a gold handprint on it, I think I was being a little over ambitious there).

The broom head needs a highlight, but I think the rest is looking okay.

More progress:-




Painted Gretels stockings (Wolf Grey > 1:1 Wolf Grey/Off-white > Off-white > Grey Wash), and boots (Lonestar Leather > Brown Wash > Lonestar Leather > 1:1 Lonestar Leather/Ochre Yellow > Lonestar Leather glaze and Bronze decorations).


This leaves her finished, just got her monkey Hansel to do now.

Monkey time!




According to Google, Capuchins have a black body, a cream head and pink face.

So Hansel has a 1:1 Cold Grey/Pure Black > Cold Grey > Black Wash body, a Bonewhite > Sepia Wash head and a Rosy Flesh > Sepia Wash > Rosy Flesh face  and ears.

All topped off with a natty hat and vest combo (Blood Red > Red Orange > Sepia Wash), and an Oily Steel mechanical arm.


I'm rather proud of the job I did on him.


Attached them to their base, and hid the gaps with some Pumice Paste, once it dries the final bit of painting can start.

That's how I did the monkey on the Katapesh Merchant. Yours looks awesome! Love his cute little hat! These are pretty cool minis and I like how you are painting them, nice colors!

She's all finished:-



Up next will be the pair of Urkins, want to get a few things finished first though.

Made a small start to the Urkins:-




You've got Porker on the left, and Bookworm on the right.


Painting shared colours at the moment. Done their skin (1:1 Dead Flesh/Flat Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Dead Flesh/Flat Flesh > 1:1:1 Dead Flesh/Flat Flesh/Light Flesh), and Porkers shorts/Bookworms shirt (1:1 Cold Grey/Steel Grey plus a couple brushtips of Pure Black > Steel Grey > 1:1 Steel Grey/Ghost Grey > Sepia Wash) the shirt still needs its buttons painted.

Progress already:-





Poor Bookworm has gone blurry!


This time I painted Porkers jacket and Bookworms trousers, Olive Green > Brown Wash > Olive Green > 2:1 Olive Green/Ochre Yellow, with Scarlett Red patches, Bonewhite stitches and the jacket has a Dark Green collar and cuff.


I think that's it for shared colours, so I'll concentrate on Porker first (I get to paint sausages!)

Got quite a bit done before I remembered to take a piccy:-




Porker got brown shoes, satchel and belt (Lonestar Leather > Brown wash > Lonestar Leather > 1:1 Lonestar Leather/Iraqi Sand), Brassy Brass decorations, Bronze gas tank and grey socks and gloves (Cold Grey > Black Wash > Cold Grey > 1:1 Cold Grey/Wolf Grey).


I made a start on his sausages (Rosy Flesh with a Flesh Wash) and his pork leg weapon (Rosy Flesh on the inside, Elf Flesh on the outside plus a Flesh Wash).




Bookworm got different brown boots and belts (Leather Brown > Brown Wash > Leather Brown > 1:1 Leather Brown/Cork Brown) with Bronze decorations.

Painted his gun (Oily Steel barrel, Parasite Brown handle, Brassy Brass repairs and trigger), and started on his book armour (Magic Blue, Dark Green and Blood Red covers with Cork Brown pages and a Brown Wash).

Keep forgetting to update:-




Porker is finished.

Highlighted up his meat products with their basecoats, gave him a dagger (Oily Steel blade, Parasite Brown handle), a hat ( Magic Blue, shaded with Dark Prussian Blue), breathing tube (Andrea Blue > Sky Blue) and a mask (Old West Rose > Flesh Wash > Old West Rose > 1:1 Old West Rose/Rosy Flesh with Brassy Brass metal bits.




Bookworm is almost finished, but more importantly, I discovered his name is actually Library Owl! (I had been wondering about his bird-like mask)


Highlighted up his books with their basecoats and 1:1 Magic Blue/Andrea Blue, 1:1 Dark Green/Olive Green and 1:1 Blood Red/Red Orange. He also got a mask (1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red > Brown Wash > 1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red, with Bronze metal bits) and a hat (Hexed Lichen > Black Wash > Hexed Lichen > Hexed Lichen with two brushtipfuls of Off-white > Hexed Lichen glaze).


I also attached his backpack, just that bit left.

      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.

      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.

      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.
