  1. Those are really awesome - I love their ... earthiness? I dunno how to say, they look the part of elementals anyway!
  2. I feel like that with my Reaper stuff! I was supposed to be working on RPG figures 'after' the orks and such and then I got sucked into other projects. But! Hubby seems finally interested in playing CAV with me so I'm trying to start on his army
  3. wow I love the contrast on their vibrant caps and their skins beautiful work!
  4. that's really amazing! I love the colours!
  5. Been working pretty steadly though bad about keeping up pics! Did these guys (mostly done) in January. They are GW minis from the Battle at Pelennor Fields Lords of the Ring starter set. I started on these guys closer to end of the month, as well: They're for my Luna Wolves, first guy is the Terminator sarge (which I'm painting along with some other terminators from the Burning of Prospero box set) This guy is a resin cast Apothecary from FW I bought off ebay - he's got a pretty bad mold slip along one leg, but otherwise is a really cool model. I'm trying to paint his little vials and bottles to be more realistic like glass full of ... well, something. He has a lot of detail on him!
  6. Still feel scattered from Christmas tbh but here's my ATC for @Keianna
  7. Not to my knowledge, it's even only suggested to use hex bases, because there's a lot revolveing around base to base contact and as mentioned firing arcs. Course the models all come with hex bases, all the same size, so I tend to stick with those anyway myself.
  8. It took me a min to get the Jones one but then I really laughed - love it :D RE: basing yes - make sure you let them cure fully. It can depend how you do it, but generally I use a layer of PVA/water 50/50 for my first layer. And you really have to let that fully dry and harden before you can do anything else. If you do, it ain't comin off any time soon! but if you don't yeah you'll pull up your basing materials sadly. You can also, use super glue, or straight PVA on your basing materials. Again let it dry fully, and to give them that little extra sticky, hit them with a spray bottle of mixed PVA/Water (again about 50/50). This can help glue down the next layer (just do with succeeding layers), letting them fully dry between layers. It also is nice as it makes a very sturdy little base, those materials aren't coming off easily. A quick trick I learned from model railroading peeps is to add a lil drop of flow aid into your pva/Glue mix. Especially if you're not using the spray bottle (maybe because it'd blow away most of the flock with the air). It works really well if you're using either a dropper type thing or an old brush to let the mixture wick into the materials. The flow aid reduces the surface tension and helps your glue wick more up into the materials.
  9. He looks awesome! I've had minis that I've repainted a few times too =/ He really came out well this go around! lovely slime effects and I like how he looks like he's coming out of the ground! great work on the dirt
