Primaris Space Marine (Warhammer 40,000)
by Games Workshop
This was my first warhammer figure I've ever done. I've always enjoyed the theme of the game but never really like the Space Marines because they are to short. When I saw these new, taller, ones I actually got excited to paint one. The height on these guys are amazing. They really have a better feel about them. The issue was that I only wanted to paint one (for now) and that is when a friendly forumnite told me about this book they just released "Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000." I jumped at the chance at the book comes with one miniature on a nice base for only $15. I called my local GW store and they saved it for me. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to just paint a miniature and not spend loads of cash on a single miniature or a three pack.
I decided to go with a blood angel look for this guy. But I wanted to make it look a little unique so I did those grey chevrons on the shoulder and knee. This was also the first time I've done battle damage like you see here. It was FAR easier than I thought and the look is wonderful! I was very happy the way it turned out.
With this guy I did fill in the base with GreenStuff to give the model a little bit more weight. You can see that in the WIP below.
Thanks for the support.
WORK-N-PROGRESS for this piece.

Taking a break from flailing about on Bones to take some time and flail about on metal. Here is “Witch”, as the blister says:
Her pointy hat inspired me to paint her up as a Black Mage from Final Fantasy. However, that plan went out the window when it encountered her clothing layers. So I took the opportunity to play with Yellow a bit. Probably needs a lot more work but I’m limited by my paints at the moment.
Not the greatest job, but I am happy with the end result, especially the Browns. C&C appreciated.
I've been on a painting tear since ReaperCon. Here's one from last week.
Pathfinder's "Iron Gods" Adventure Path crosses over into science fiction, including robots and androids, such as the android priestess Meyanda.
Wayne Reynolds painted the cover of the Adventure Path where Meyanda appears: click for link.
Bobby Jackson sculpted the character. I like what he did with this delicate sculpt.
I decided to give her a sci-fi-styled base, not my usual rock/grass/leaf palette.
I started with a piece of plasticard shaped like square floor-tiles, gouged out some scratches, and added some debris (a robotic "piston" of two brass rods, a "cable" of brass wire, and a few chunks of rubble that I carved from the plasticard).

Trying my hand at speed painting. This was not done in one sitting, but total time was about 2.5 hours, which is less than half the time it normally takes me to paint a thing. Not perfect, but pretty darn good (for me, anyway) for the time spent. Here is the Wench:
Didn’t plan anything out beforehand; color selection was spur of the moment. Her dress is Royal Purple with Nightmare Black shadow, and some BCA Pink mixed in for highlights. Top and apron are Lantern Yellow up through Candlelight Yellow. Tanned Skin triad was used for her flesh, and various leather colors for her hair and accessorizing accessories.
Highlights didn’t really work out around her backside, but there was no time to fret over it. And you can’t really tell from the awful photo, but I finally managed to paint a decent eye.
And forgot eyebrows. Whoops.
I painted this lovely lady over the last week as my first project post-Reapercon. I wanted to apply some of the things that I learned but also have fun with her.
She was a really great learning experience, thanks to everyone who gave me great feedback in my WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77557-01450-all-hallow’s-eve/&page=1
This was my first experience “flying blind” with NMM, as on previous attempts, I’d followed the highlighting of other painters’ examples. There is no painted example in the store yet, so I had to just wing it. @Kuro Cleanbrush gave me some much appreciated advice that I’m definitely going to keep using moving forward.
This was was my first attempt at OSL, it’s not perfect by any means, but I’m pretty pleased with it.
Let me know what y’all think, criticism is always very much wanted - it helps me learn and improve!
