  1. OK...I have some time today so I'll start this up. Won't actually get to start seriously painting again until September or so, but at least this inital post will be taken care of. So I play Warmahordes, specifically Legion of Everblight (title of the thread kind a gives it away, I know). And I have a sizable force, most of which is still bare primer or only partially basecoated. I'd like to field painted armies, since dice roll better for those (that's how it works, right?), and I feel like it's a good idea to get more painted before I start buying more (who am I kidding). So, since this thread has to start somewhere, a catalogue: Painted now...These have been posted elsewhere, for the most part, but it's cool to see it all in one place. The big dude in the back is a Carnivean. Clockwise, there's a Beast Mistress and four Shredders, two Stingers, a Shepherd, a Feralgeist and pLylyth is in the center. Not shown (was in a display case when I set this up) is a Strider Deathstalker. This represents one warlock and 28 points worth of army. Now...unpainted. First up, the 'Locks, beasts and solos:clockwise from top center: Angelius, Proteus, Annyssa Ryvaal, Forsaken, pVayl, pAbsylonia, two Raeks, Afflictor, Scythean. In the center is a Sorceress on Hellion, a magnetized Carnivean/Ravagore and two Harriers. This is another 65 (or 66) points and two warlocks. Unpainted units:clockwise from top left: two min units of Blighted Nyss Archers and one unit attachment, a complement of five Incubi, a unit of Striders and UA, a full Spawning Vessel and a min unit of Raptors. This is 35 points. And I have a Throne of Everblight and an Archangel. The Throne is the one that actually seems assembled (it isn't, really), and the AA is the pieces around the perimeter of the photo. This is another 29 points. So, all told, that's three warlocks (pAbsy, pLyl and pVayl) and 157 points of Legion, of which one 'lock and 28 points are painted. That's just about 18%, so I need to get cracking. Annyssa Ryvaal is likely the next piece I'll finish; she's almost done as it is. The Harriers are also really close; I'll likely complete all the basecoating on the other wingading beasties while I finish out the Harriers.
  2. Reading the forums here a couple of years back got me interested in Warmachine & Hordes and browsing the Privateer Press site got me interested in 3 factions; Legion, Cryx and Circle. Legion & Circle come in the Hordes 2 player starter so I grabbed it and a few more Legion models to make my first 50 point force with, and my second full list will likely be Legion again. However last week a local player decided to divest his Cryx and I was able to get a large chunk of the army I wanted for half price, so now I have a lot of Cryx on my table to go with everything else. Second to this on Twitter there is a tag #miniaturemonday people use to share pictures of recently completed models and I therefor have a formal painting night where I invite locals over to paint and stream via a Google hangout for non-locals to join and chat. So this week I decided to paint Skarre, and while mine is not the amazing paint work I've seen online for a table top miniature I'm happy enough with her. So here she is;
  3. Here's Gastonne Crosse, one of the Warmachine: Tactics SE minis I picked up during that KS (Elara, Tyro of the Third Chamber being the other one). I'm not particularly happy with his face or hair, and may revisit them at some point. And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming. As always, C & C welcome!
  4. Welcome! I have pictures of the stuff that I painted today. Well, finished painting, at any rate. Some of it has been on my desk for months. Gallant Constance Blaize, Knight of the Prophet Griffon Houseguard Thane (I've already fixed his eyes.) Elara, Tyro of the Third Chamber Issyrah, Sybil of Dawn Index post is updated, and as always, C & C is welcome!
  5. The work of yesterday and today's part of the Paint Binge Challenge, The Butcher Unleashed. He's been on my desk a while, and I wanted to clear off some space. And I've already fixed the inside of his hunting horn. As always, C & C welcome!
  6. Well I have been continuing to paint and just been slack about posting updates here. All these models are part of my Legion of Everblight force from Privateer Press, I even managed to eek out a win with them in a tournament! (Took 5 games to get a win. :)) I did get a bit of a burst of inspiration while painting the Soldier so he is actually oddly the one I consider best finished of these models. Just going for table top standard and so the pictures are presented for interest sake. If you have questions I'm happy to answer. Vayl Ogryn Warspears Nephilim Soldier
  7. I picked up a Carnivean real cheap a while back. It was already assembled and painted. I didn't do much else to it, no puttying, just completely repainted it, twice. I wanted to make it into a special project, repainting it using the scheme the previously owner did. My pink and blue didn't look so great and my wife requested pink changed to black. I didn't think straight black would look good, hence the blueish highlights. The only color idea I kept from the original paint was using metallics on the spiny growths. The previous owner had all silver. I figured it was so cheap I could do what I wanted and completely colored it different than the rest of my army. In the future he will probably get a name and become the black sheep lucky charm of my army, we shall see. I was experimenting with the liquid stuff for the base and actually think I may be able to do some cool stuff in the future with it, but for now it remains sort of abstract. The Spell Martyr models were sweet in the fact that they took no assembly. I did sort of a rush job on them, but the end result is decent. Carnivean Spell Martyr
  8. Well, it took me almost a month to finish these. I told myself when I started painting that I would not do multiples of the same model. That went real well. I am happy though especially for being out of my comfort zone with the cauldron (metallics aren't really my best thing and I haven't painted anything that bloody for a while, if ever.) I can't wait to get these girls into a game. Hope you enjoy!
  9. This is my first Skorne model, sort of a color test for the future ones. I knew I should have taken a pic and maybe asked before I washed his armor. I had this very bright glistening brass/gold armor. It doesn't look much like it anymore. I kind of like it this way too, but it was a bit of a shock how dull all the metallics got and then on top of that how even more dull they got once the mini was sealed. I had to paint a lot of him over again once the mini was sealed, I am not sure if that can be avoided next time with the sealing, but I am thinking that I may try a redish wash on the next one? Anyway the base was a complete experiment and came out nice I think. I always pictured Skorne more in the tropics, beaches and such, with their banners waving in the salty wind. Hopefully I captured that in this model. Hope you like it!
  10. Well I continue to make progress on my Legion force for Hordes, and I need to make more progress before the 1st when they need to go out for a tourney, so there will probably be at least one more post in the next couple of weeks. Here is the whole group, followed by a few individual shots.
  11. Got the last touches down on these and their bases flocked. Woohoo! Another Warlock and 9 points painted for my army. Absylonia, Terror of Everblight: pAbsy was very fun to paint. Love the winghands and I really had fun giving her this base. Not much else to say, other than I hope y'all like her! And the Angelius. So far, I've played this guy in a few games and been...underwhelmed. The Legion community seems split on whether the Angelius is an auto-include or a meh beast. Either way, SOOOOO much fun to paint, and I'm quite pleased with how he came out. Since A) I'm likely to get a second at some point, and B) all my beasts get names, I dubbed this one "Yahoel." This is the name of, apocryphally, the angel who spoke to Abraham, and is associated to some extent with glory and fire. Hopefully this beast will bring me the former and rain the latter upon my foes. I've included a few closeup shots of what a standard soldier would be likely to see when this fella comes to call. Comments always welcome!
  12. Wish I had some Reaper stuff to offer, but I have been busy and was only able to recently prime a few. Circle of Orboros - Gnarlhorn Satyre - was supposed to be a quick paint job and turned into a week long affair. I have been assembling/basing and then painting lately and this was the first time that I had significant issues getting the brush to go where it was needed. I like the way he turned out in the end. Officer and Musician - Were painted to match the rest of my Strider Rangers. Hope you like!
  13. Another nine points for my Legion army. These have all been featured at least somewhat in my Legion WiP thread. Harriers: These come in a pack of two. Although I'm unlikely to ever field more than that in most situations, I may want as many as three in some lists, so I'll likely paint two more of these at some point. These two are Orville and Wilbur; the next two will be Amelia and Chucks (yes, plural...there are two big-name Charleses in American aviation...). Loads of fun to paint, and I really love the way the wings look. These guys show up on the table nicely. The Forsaken: an unfortunate, mutated beast-woman able to feed off the ferocious energies of Legion warbeasts. I will eventually need at least two more of these...as half-winged, angry ladies that will generally serve to torture my opponents, I thought harpies a good place to look for inspiration, so the first is named Ocypete...Aello and Caelano will come later. I know there's at least a fourth named harpy in Homer somewhere, and I may need a fifth if I really want to do stupid tier lists with pAbsylonia, so I'll have a bit of research to do when I get to that point. But for now, Ocypete is enough. I really dig her wing, and I think the back view is pretty great. Her front side could have used a bit of lining, I think, between the wing and chest. But it shows up well enough: Beast Mistress: I'm really happy with how she came out. I tried a new order-of-operations for painting her skin, which is a bit high-contrast/stark-transition up close but works nicely on the table. This is a really nice sculpt by Patrick Keith and I'm not upset that I'll eventually paint two more of her, actually I'm looking forward to eventually revisitng it. The flag above her head will be orange (like the harriers' wings) on one and purple (like the shadows on the beasts) on the third. Also from Greek myth, Enyo is the name of a goddess of destruction; she ran with Eris and co. during the war for Troy. Please let me know what you think, especially with the Beast Mistress. Thanks for looking!
  14. And here we have a Nonokrion Order Infernal. More apoxie sculpt for the basing. Used a gear wheel to pattern the beasts base. Added a third eye tat to fill in that huge, blank forehead.
  15. I don't have many minions or a use for this at the moment, but I couldn't resist any longer, such a cool model. Trying to figure out the best way to base it was the most difficult part. Hope you enjoy!
  16. So here's another bargain grab from a closing gamestore. Julian Helstrom from the Iron Kingdoms Game which is some kind of variant of Warmachine or Hordes. Tried something new for the base. You guys turned me on to Apoxie sculpt and so far it's been pretty cool. So I decided to make some smooth river stones for him to be standing in.
  17. Picked up a bunch of Privateer Press minis at half price when my local game store folded. Anyhow, Here's one of my first PP minis. I used what is sort of an old standby scheme for me. Red cloak and gold armor.
  18. Had the model for almost a year and finally got around to finishing him. Yay!
  19. A Legion of Everblight Afflictor. The studio model pose looked sort of odd to me with the beast sliding across the grass. I tried my best to make it look nicer than that. Hope you enjoy!
  20. Here are a few figs I've done over the last year and 1/2. Privateer Press: Classic Dire Troll Mauler 71007, Freebooter STE 004 Dixie Dynamite and ZAU 004Female Wizard, and Bushido: Sakura GCTBIC003, and Kitsune GCTBTR002. I scored a silver at ReaperCon this year for Freebooter STE 004 Female Wizard. Titled "Zapatos De Rojo. I also received a lot of interest in the Classic Dire Troll Mauler from Privateer Press. Kitsune is just a great sculpt. My blending wasn't great. Hope you enjoy.
  21. A friend kept poking me to post these. Although I spent a lot of time on them last month, I wish I had more time for them. In the end I really wanted to move on to more exciting stuff. These were mostly for gaming fun.
  22. This is a Khador Berserker from Warmachine (33028). This is the metal version (I'm not sure if there's actually a plastic version of this guy). He'd been sitting at 95% done for months now, so I decided to finish him up (reward for finishing guys is being allowed to start new ones). I tried to do two-brush blending on him without brush-licking before I took Meg Maples class at ReaperCon. The main colors used are Khador Red Base, HD Crimson Red, Brown Liner, Polished Steel, and Clockwork Brass.
  23. Well with 11 models finished in June it was a slow month, but given its the end of semester I'm ok with that progress. However this month should see a lot more models completed as I strive to paint 1500 points of Orcs for Kings of War in the next 2 weeks. Though at 5 minis a day I might fall short on that goal while preserving my sanity by painting some other models. Which leads to the push to paint my Legion of Everblight models as well, which is another block of 20ish models that I need to get done. At least with the Army Painter coloured undercoats that isn't a huge burden, but still that isn't a sure fire speed up either. So we'll see what I get done. Finished Orcs 10x GW 80's plastic 7x Harlequin savage orcs 7x Harlequin Black Orcs 1x 80's GW Uruk-hai. 1x 80's GW Orc Archer 1x 80's GW Orc Spearman 1x 80's GW cyclopean Orc 3x 90's GW plastic Black Orc 3x WFB 5E Starter Orc 1x 90's GW metal Black Orc 2x Bloodbowl Trolls Finished Legion of Everblight 1x Spawning Vessel Acolyte 1x Spawning Vessel 1x Forsaken Finished Other Reaper 77072: Bailey Silverbell Bombshell: KS1 Exclusive Maylee Studio McVey: 1 male Samaratin Studio McVey: 1 female Samaratin
  24. Hi everyone, I'm going to try the WIP thing to keep me motivated, and to help me improve on a few things. Most of these are mid-process, or very lightly started. I have a specific way I paint, and I really only photograph about once a week. So, without further adieu, here begins my wip. First up, we have The Bones Gnoll, about 2/3 of the way through how I paint, but there are several areas to improve upon. My intent is to give a more rusted look to the metallics, and to bring up the leather straps. In person, I'm happy with the upper fur, with the feet needing improvement (and the leg wraps and flail wraps). Eyes are going to be something fun. Next up we have Vanja, Fire Giant Princess, the metal version (the bones version will be more traditionally coal-black with red highlights). This is a very early stage wip of her for me. I'm starting with skin tones, bringing them up to Vallejo Pale Flesh. Next we have the Bones Darkrasp, Death Priest. I've started an attempt at OSL with him, and would very much like suggestions on this. I really like how the scythe is coming, but the robes leave a LOT to be desired. The cloak looks like a burlap/linen (which was my intent with all the drybrushing) and I'm happy with it overall, including the OSL effects on the hood. Finally, we have my 2-year-old's wip of the bones Unicorn
  25. I slightly reposed him in hopes to get something better than odd studio pic on the box.
