I really like those Trollbloods!  You painted them up great! 

 

I need to get me a couple of those.

Nice work on the tartan.  I like your color choice.  Compliments his other equipment really well.

Thanks! The tartan is kinda what a lot of the non-skin palette built around, so I'm glad it worked!

Thanks! The trolls are not my faction, but I've painted a few of them now and they're great models. Aside from the Privateer Press Assembly Problem, of course, but that's a given for any metal Warmahordes model...

They almost convinced my son and I to buy into them at GenCon last year, but one of the concerns I had was that they looked very assembly-heavy - that, my already enormous (to me) backlog, the looming Bones KS and my shrinking wallet (found them on day 3 lol) .. 

I do have their gencon warmachine freebie in a box somewhere, but i don't think it's got a label though (might have been an exclusive from gencon)

 

That guy looks awesome.. maybe I'll have to go troll their website one of these days and get a troll or two.. 

 

edit:  it wasn't buried too deeply - there are 2 figs in the package.. but neither is labeled

The plastic models have more parts than necessary, but are well keyed and easy to assemble, so grabbing a couple of starter boxes wouldn't be too bad. It will take a little time, but Assembly shouldn't be frustrating. It's a fun game and they do great organised play support if you have a FLGS.

 

The metal models from PrivPress have always been notorious for bizarre multipart assembly. I have assembled single human figures with parts in the double digits.

 

The gencon "beer model" in 2017 was the "Voltaic Vixen." I'd guess that's what you have...a woman, one hand on her hip, the other holding a staff with a steam whistle on the end, boots that look like bell-bottoms and a midriff-baring chestplate? (Called "beer models" because there's a local-to-Gencon brewery that makes a PrivPress-themed beer each year in conjunction with the model)

      Welp, I found it on sale and couldn't stop myself. I decided to make it a quick paintjob so I just used Cerluen blue and Tiatanium white for the body while using golden interference green for the gems (glazed over a basic black to white gradient). It was glazed in gloss varnish and in reall life the whites looks more white than seen in the photos. Now that it is finished I would have probably done the gems differently, colouring them all black, glazing some interference paint and then adding highlights with white.
       
       
      The base was made using liquitexes ceramic stucato (which is really nice for bases, even thought you can't see it here), which was given a earthy red wash. I then decided that it was too stark and that the figure would work better in a jungle, so I used some miniNature, moss, tuffs and flock to create it.

      Sure, I definitely feel like I already have enough WIP threads going, but at the same time hubby did ask me to work on this one for him, so why not.  For some reason I was rather excited he asked me to paint her for him (he's painting the rest of his Circle Orboros Battlegroup Box (PIP 72094))...  I blame her cape.  It's a rather interesting looking one, filled with all sorts of details.  Staff is quite nice too

      ^So here is where things start.  Yup, it isn't the prettiest of jobs for gluing, especially where that staff meets the shoulder.  It just wouldn't stick when I put it together, and I think at the time I didn't have my pinning stuff yet.  Could be wrong, but for now that's the story I'm sticking with! 
       

      ^While it was tempting to try and sculpt something, given she's already glued down, I figured I'd use a mix I had made up ages ago of various grades of what I think was Woodland Scenics ballast because it's quick, easy, convenient, and the grains are all sized slightly differently....  And that add a bit more later on, be it rocks and/or various bushes or whatever.
       
      Right off the bat I'm going to say this: I so didn't get all of the seams, and I'm more or less okay with such.  Sadly, a lot of them are in really odd places (who puts a seam in the middle of several cloak folds?)
       

      ^How things look now.  Ahhh, Grey Liner, you're ever so useful it seems.  It's pretty much become my go-to for priming, and I love how the colours seem to be somewhat different as they set along the various parts of the mini.
       
      I do understand that having fully assembled her things will be difficult, but it was originally a mini hubby was going to paint, and he asked she be assembled...  So I'm taking it as a challenge to undertake now, yes, let's go with that one!   Going to be letting the liner dry and fully set/cure/whateverit'scalled and am hoping to spend a bit of time every night on her this week!

      When some warlocks and warcasters go epic, they don't change all that much.  This is not the case with Thagrosh, who seems to be slowly transforming into a full on dragon.
      For this project, my client wanted me to create a very different look for Thagrosh.  I pitched him a couple ideas, and he really loved the concept of giving Thagrosh the Magma Dragon treatment.
      So here he is, in all his fiery glory.
