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!

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

 

I need to get me a couple of those. 

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)

      again same story as other posts, so November work. Wanted to try to paint a mulit-color cloak so this was my first attempt/experiment at that.

      On Wednesdays I’ve been playing in Storm King’s Thunder at my FLGS, and since I have lots of minis, I’ve basically been providing the minis for the game, including for my fellow players. However, in spite of how expansive my collection is, I don’t always have a perfect match… sometimes not even close to a good match.
       
      This was the case for the party’s human warlock and bard. For the warlock, I was using an elven bladesinger, and the bard was a female elven bard, both from the Chainmail line. It was not a good fit for the rogue-like warlock, and my utter and total lack of male bards of any type was frankly astonishing.
       
      The monk was okay (also from the chainmail line), but as an asamar, the skin was wrong, and the colors of everything else was off too.
       
      So with my most recent order I selected some new minis.
      14544: Ian, Ivy Crown Mage for the warlock
      02500: Fergus the Weaver for the bard
       
      After washing them and taking care of a bit of flash and moldlines (very minor in both cases) I mixed up some greenstuff and pressed out new bases to match the bases I’ve made for the rest of the party’s minis from the Ruined Courtyard stamp from Happy Seppuku. Once the greenstuff was cured I spray primed them black, and then got to painting.
       

       
      I’m still blocking in colors, and checking with my fellow players to make sure they match what they picture in their minds. I used Tanned Flesh for the warlock and and bard’s skin, and NMM Gold for the monk’s skin. Beyond that I’m not really sure what to do for the monk… Waiting on feedback.
       

       
      For the warlock, I’m painting the tunic in blue, and I’m thinking about trying to give the impression of raven’s feathers for the mantle. The yellow accents will give a nice contrast to the otherwise black/blue/purple colors that’ll make up his pallet.
       
      The bard I’m less clear on how to paint him up. So far I’m going with a bright red tunic with some yellow/gold trim. We’ll see what feedback I get from the player going forward.
       
      More to come!

      My FLGS is doing a Halloween themed painting contest. As your entry needs to be purchased in store I decided to go with a Hordes miniature I had been eyeing for awhile, Lady Karianna Rose, Grymkin Solo. I put her on a Secret Weapon base and added a couple of pumpkins, now on to primer.
