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!

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.

Sowerberry begins.

I don't know enough Dickens to know if he's an existing character, like all the other named members of his faction, or an original creation (pretty much all my classic literary knowledge came from watching Wishbone in the 90's).




I did his face (1:1 Dead Flesh/Dwarf Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Dead Flesh/Dwarf Flesh > 1:1:1 Dead Flesh/Dwarf Flesh/Bonewhite) and his hair (1:1 Wolf Grey/Off-white > Light Grey Wash).

I did try and give him glowing blue eyes, but they were just too small and recessed, after the fourth attempt I just flooded the sockets with Flesh Wash and called it a day.

      I've never been much of a fan of GW.  I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....).
      And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two).
      But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever.
      So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre.  Took a look around and caught sight of this:

      Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction.  Or whatever the different groups are called.
      I thought, "Those are pretty cool!  Flying stuff.  Steampunky.  I like."
      Then we left.  And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw).
      Then we met back up on Monday.  And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships.  So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap).
      So, this is what they look like when you open the box:

      Oye! Lots of bits.  Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive).  Options that presumably follow rules.  Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play. 
      But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW.
      So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.

      Dylan Blackzorn looked around at the engine room with an annoyed expression on his face. The raiders had caused a hell of a mess in there. A fair amount of damage, too from the looks of things. He signaled for the others with him to follow his lead; they needed to be sure there weren't any surprises waiting for them before they got to work bringing the various systems back online.
      He flexed his fingers inside the energy glove on his left hand. In addition to being a great asset in the hand to hand combat they'd had to engage in with the raiders, it was also a powerful tool. With it, he'd be able to engage with the ship's engineering computer and ascertain what repairs were going to be necessary, as well as to dramatically shorten the time those repairs would take.
      Time to get to it, he thought. The sooner they were out of this sector, the better.




      He really does have a face, and it looks pretty decent in person....sigh.
      I'll have to go back and try to make it stand out a little more.

      Presenting Porker and Library Owl:-

      Library Owl:-

      A pair of Urkins who are part of the Dickensian faction of the game Twisted, they're also in my Steampunk People WIP thread.
      They were a lot of fun to paint, which is good because I have quite a few more to do!
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
