  1. Another figure from the Thanksgiving paint binge. This is a metal Games Workshop LOTR figure I got in a box of random stuff. I don't know the model number or what set he comes from (if any). I sawed off his original base so I could mount him on one that is the same in style as my other LOTR figures. Painted him in an autumnal color scheme, which turned out to be pretty close to the box art, except for my bright Pumpkin Orange cloak.
  2. So when this model came out I had to have it, as, I suspect, did every other ork player as well. It just screams WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHcoughcoughOrk. Anyways, been working on it for about a week? I think. Sadly it is now finished and I have to find a new project :( :( Sadness.
  3. Finished these finally (yes I know the bases on the back ones aren't done yet) but the painting is done :P Just got something like 2 chariots, a boltthrower, a few lords, a unit of Calvary and I think I can pretty call his army done (at least for now). Really trying to get to more CAV and my Jabberwock this week! So messy pic:
  4. Finished the squad for my November Hobby Goals. Been painting like crazy... Just tabletop and though I cut a couple corners, I'm happy with how they came out and they match the ones I painted last year so that's good too (writing down recipes and schemes is a wonderful thing!). Thanks for looking.
  5. Finally got off my tush and did some quick bases for my fabulous space marines. Looking at them now I think the skulls on the backpacks should be silver. But for now I think I'm going to call them done-enough and move on. I'm planning to do more in equally-fabulous colours so if anyone has suggestions for improvements on the next batch I'd love to hear it.
  6. Hi, I'm continuing my random minis painting and I found this gray mini standing out (quite obviously) in my pile of unpainted White Bones. It was clearly not a Bones (I must have gotten it from the dollar bin of my FLGS), so my OCD kicked-in and instead of putting it in another bin, I slapped some paint on it and called it done. I'm not that pleased with it (wasn't really inspired, and gave up on making the eyes pretty after 5 futile attempts), but I'm happy that it is one less mini in the unpainted bin.
  7. I painted this up over the course of one day, yesterday. Curious to see what you guys think! If you're interested in how I made it...process is laid out here: xactoguru.blogspot.ca
  8. A while back I came across a photo of the Games Workshop metal Witch Hunter figure of the fellow carrying an axe in one hand, and a puppet in the other. I knew I had to have one for my Frostgrave collection, as it was such a silly looking model. Luckily, I was able to pick one up on Ebay. The puppet, as it comes with the figure, represents a religious personality with a mitre and staff. I, however, wanted it to be more of a "Mini Me" representation of the puppeteer (obviously driven a little looney from repeated trips into the frozen city). So, I replaced the crooked head of the staff with a small axe head, and carved his mitered hat down to look more like a helmet. I painted the figure, and did the puppet in the same color scheme. I wasn't sure what to do on his wooden sign, and then I got the idea to do it as a scoreboard, as if our Thug and his little friend were having a contest to see which one of them could despatch the most enemies. I'm really happy with how he (they?) turned out. I think it will make a fun addition to my Frostgrave collection.
  9. My finished Deffkoptas! WIP shots are in my WIP thread if any are interested.
  10. I am tired of painting these things, I love the detail, but I have been painting a khorne army for awhile now and it seems I see them everywhere. too much red to much copper. Only 5 more Blood Reavers to go and I am done. oh well BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!!!! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!!!!!!! still have to base them but the paint is done.
  11. One the character models for my Ork army - the Painboy - think Mad Doctor and you've got him. (And of course now I see bits I should clean up, or missed sigh)
  12. The Cursed Company was a regiment of Skeletons, Captained by Richter Kreugar (the Damned). They were dogs-of-war (mercenaries) that could be hired by any other Warhammer army, with three exceptions: the Bretonnians the Tomb Kings and the Vampire Counts. I never heard or read an explanation for what they would do with the money they earned. Games Workshop fluff was always a bit dodgy like that. The backstory was that originally Richter was a living human regiment Captain who had some untoward dealings with a Wizard or Necromancer. He ended up, dead, undead, and in possession of a cursed sword that would instantly turn anything it killed into a skeleton warrior.
  13. Here are my new were-rats! I wanted to have more than melee so I did a lazy conversion by grabbing some GW zombie bits with spears. I stuck a wooden bead over the spear part and filled it with supper glue. A little paint and viola not to shabby (for the table anyway). I cleaned up the bases a bit after picture time as well . I am working on a scenario with a cult of were-rats worshiping ZBP Abominarat. Should be fun .
  14. Finally finished "Bob" my second Hellpit abomination, which is a large Skaven designed monster for Warhammer fantasy. He's pretty grotesque with a face(s) only a mother could love so of course I think he's adorable. One of those it's so ugly it's cute things. My first Hellpit, Pretty Boy, was lonely so I decided he needed a friend. Had a lot of fun with the skin tones on him, I think I'm getting better overall. I played around with a lot of different tones to try to give him a patchwork appearance - since this thing is essentially a golem, frankenstein type thing. Anyway so I took a ton of pics, some are a little blurry unfortunately. I've lost an integral part of my camera's tripod, that helps it connect so I was holding the camera and it shows.
  15. So these are some of the infantry types I'm working on for my army to play vs. my son's Necrons. Trying for a piratey theme, so I did the bases like a seashore. At least that's the look I'm going for! I did the bases with heavy gel medium, tried to sculpt some wave forms. Then put down a fine layer of sand with PVA and used brown paint and a dark earth wash. Final step before adding water effects was drybrush with iraqi sand (a light khaki colour). For some of the bigger models I plan to try to add a few more details, maybe a shell here or there, driftwood etc.
  16. another chaos mini to the collection. Korgos Kol the general of Khorne's Army. criticism welcomed, ideas welcomed. My wife called the chaos hound a mutant iguana.
  17. So, I'm about to start really painting my Orks for 40k and my theme for them is Pirate - which is going to include a lot of conversions eventually and what not based on nautical ships. Where I'm stuck atm is coming up with a more or less cohesive colour scheme for them. 40K orks are fairly garish but dingy, as they've seen a lot of battles. Reds, Yellows, and Blues are common, pretty much primary colours. Their skin is almost always done up in dark greens. I am going with the greenskin but for an overall colour scheme I just don't know what to do. Some of the guys I've painted with blue pants (which are going to have white stripes on them, eventually). I don't want blue to be my main colour, overall, nor the other two most prevalent just because they're done a lot. I was thinking about the use of orange as an accent, to tie all the army together. The metals are going to be pretty usual steel, with maybe some brass here and there. Ruddy leather for the leathers, where appropriate, I think. 40k orks have a lot of orky symbols, and such that people usually paint in a variety of colours - these are more what I was thinking of doing the orange on. I was wondering what the more experienced painters thought about this idea, and other accent colours to go with? Purple's not too far off the colorwheel from blue, which is across from the orange. I am not into colour theory, I try to stick with what I know goes together, and I really don't know about orange, nor have I every used it to my knowledge, to paint anything other than fire. So it's good to stretch, and Orks give a lot of room for variety as well, I think. So suggestions are appreciated :D thanks all!
  18. awhile back I posted a pic of a white dragon and explained how I painted it using a wash brush. this was a challenge that I won and received 5 Bloodreavers for my efforts. I have since bought more reavers and plan to build an army dedicated to Khorne the blood god. the painting is fairly easy and if you do it in an assembly line fashion its fairly quick. here are the first 10.
  19. Here's the leader of the loyalist element of the Luna Wolves. He's converted from a Betrayal at Calth figure, so I swapped out his weapons, and a few of his accoutrement as well. I also had to kind of redesign the head area, and I put a new head on him from another space marine. His collar didn't come out quite as well as I'd hoped but it does its job at least (hiding the ugly neck join).
  20. Finished up my Luna Wolf Rhino this morning, several things I wish I'd done better but it's going to have to do for now. Further weathering will be done at the end of my entire army painting so I can try to keep it consistent. Anyway, C&C is heartily welcome!
  21. I decided to reboot by old space marine army and here is my first finished mini for that endeavor. I decided to go with an older look and am thus buying as much of the forge world minis for this as is possible. Yes it is very expensive but I'll enjoy they way it looks better. And since all of my old imperial fists minis need rebasing anyway, I thought I'd start over. The bases I'm using for this are the secret weapon blasted wetlands. I'm also using the Imperial Fists decal sheet from forge world. Thus, I give you the Imperial Fists MKII Standard bearer. This is a closeup of the banner. I used the forge world decal sheet for this. The dorn and the banner background are 2 different decals stacked. Now a comparison of what the rest of the old army looks like. I think the new ones are going to be WAY better. This also shows how far I've come in my 15+ years of painting.
  22. This is a 10 man squad of Black Legion Chaos Marines made by Games Workshop. I actually started painting them a few years ago, when I still played Warhammer 40k. I haven't played in a couple of editions now, but these guys were begging to get finished up. I chose to do so as part of Inarah's paint binge this weekend. My painting ability has increased since I started these guys; stripping them to completely start over was a consideration, but in the end I just chose to push on and finish them up, trying to fix things along the way. I'm fairly happy with how they turned out; I still have a fair number of these guys left to paint, so I'll have a chance to make the next ones look better. Please let me know what you think. DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR!!!!! Apologies if the pictures aren't that great, I'm experimenting with my wife's new light box.
  23. Got a little more flesh practice in, as well as an eye. Little more freehand as well, like to think it's getting better lol
  24. Got a bit of the horde done, I tried for a pattern on one rat, grey and black. I also painted one a kind of tawny colour, which was in honour of my awesomely sweet rat of some 20 years ago, Whiskers. He used to sit on my shoulder and watch me at the computer or whatever I was doing. I really miss that little guy, such a shame rats just don't have the life span of cats :( although I guess that'd make the wild kind a bit more dangerous overall. Anyway! The middle guy here is Whiskers ^^
  25. Finished this fellow last Thursday during a GW painting event: Update: Made this fellow a sort of display base, so he can adorn my shelf in all his splendor. :P
