  1. Presenting Angry Joe, the last of my Survivors from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. He believes the best defence against monsters is to wear a suit made of their skin. Had a lot of fun painting this one, Gorm armour is my favourite set despite all the little details, now I just need to paint the Gigalion itself. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly recieved.
  2. Presenting Skully, the third member of my Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. She likes skulls and has a pet rock. I think this is the weakest of the Survivors, it's not a bad mini but it's a bit of an awkward sculpt that doesn't make a whole lot of sense out of context. Was still fun to paint though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  3. Presenting Lady Fancy Hair, my second Survivor from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death, she's into whips and leather belts. Had this one sitting unfinished for a while (I got burnt out painting her fancy hair), but as I currently have a renewed interest in my Kingdom Death stuff, I thought I'd try and get her finished. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  4. KD:M Kickstarter 2 On November 25th, Black Friday. We will be launching our 2nd Kingdom Death: Monster campaign. The focus of the campaign will start on a reprint of the sold out Kingdom Death: Monster core set with an 1.4 ruleset. (Current version of the game is 1.31). An upgrade pack with the rulebook and updated cards will be available for existing fans. Beyond that my lips are sealed. Except for this tiny teaser of course. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/poots/kingdom-death-monster-15/description
  5. "Umm... Guys, I think I've found our missing team members." Presenting the Cleric, part of the second Echoes of Death set from Kingdom Death, not sure why she has such a gruesome base insert, none of the others came with one. Disappointingly, she looks pretty terrible in the piccys. Honestly, apart from her decidedly wonky eyes, I thought I'd done a fairly good job. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  6. Presenting the Storm Knight from Kingdom Death. Second time tackling this one (I like it that much!), I think I prefer my newer, colourful version but I still struggled to do a decent job on his cloud cape, I think it needs more time and effort put into it than I have the patience for. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  7. The Screaming Antelope is one of the core monsters of Kingdom Death: Monster. And the fact that you can get so many fine resources from it makes it one of the most hunted creatures in the setting. For this paintjob, I wanted to move away from both the grey standard color scheme for the antelope and away from the red "skinned antelope" look I've often seen. All together, I feel like this came out really well. The base is constructed from apoxie sculpt and green stuff.
  8. With the Borderlands so infused with the reality-altering power of The Void, mutants and people with extraordinary powers are quite commonplace. While some settlements cast out those that are different (a decision they usually live to regret), most are more welcoming, when you live in a world where everything is trying to kill you, any help is appreciated no matter how strange the source. Presenting the Ringtail Vixen, a special character in the game Kingdom Death:- Monster. Her heightened reflexes and superior strength come in handy when fighting giant monsters. I have fairly mixed feelings about this one, I'm happy with some parts like her tails and leggings, but not so much with others like her face (I'm really starting to struggle with these smaller faces) and her club (I never did figure out a decent colour to paint it), but overall she doesn't look too bad. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  9. I have a Lion:- A Gigalion in fact. I have some Hunters:- Lets do this thing. Started with the first Hunter:- I'm calling him Mr. Lovely Locks. Made some progress:- Done his skin so far (Dwarf Skin > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Skin > 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Light Skin), plus some 1:1 Scarlett Red/Dwarf Skin claw marks and an Old Rose nipple.
  10. Presenting Mr. Lovely Locks (aka Gadrock), a character from the game Kingdom Death:- Monster. He's prepared to face the unspeakable horrors lurking in the darkness with nothing more than a jawbone knuckleduster and an overgrown fringe. Really pleased with this one, I'm happy with how his skin turned out and I didn't make a mess painting all those cuts he's acquired. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  11. The first of many survivors. I'm not entirely happy with eyes and skin, but I think my first attempt at OSL turned out pretty well.
  12. Well then ... it's done! We ... are done. After a rather short ride, I finally arrived at the end. Five minutes before lock-down I handed in my "Animals in War" painting challenge entry. As always, it consists of a small background story, together with a more or less well painted miniature. Find the WIP ->here<- I am not all to happy with it, I could have done a lot better, but it's okay. And in the end, I messed up the pictures as well. The good thing is: I could have done worse. *sigh* But well - can't help it. So, here she comes. I tried to translate the original text to English, so if there are mistakes ( I am sure there will be) feel free to correct me. As always: Feel free to comment, but if you just want to say "nice" or "cool", leave a like instead, because I value those as a nod to my participation in the forums. I really don't need "cool"s or "nice"s. The Light Fantastic She sat by the wall, held her breath and listened. After a while, the tripping of many feet broke through the silence. Carefully the warrior woman looked up. She expected to see the enemy's face at any moment. But nothing like that happened. Instead, she could hear a voice, sending shivers down her spine. A calm, mocking pronunciation, unmistakable and probably unique in the world. "Hey, Evi," the unknown speaker shouted, "You can show yourself. I know you're out there." She took a deep breath, smiled grimly and pressed the lamp tighter to her chest. Yes, of course. He knew. He wasn't stupid. Quite the opposite. He was very intelligent - considering the fact he was a baboon. Call it arrogance, but it had been a mistake of the humans to believe monkeys to be of lower intelligence. It was the humans who were stupid. I renewed attempts, the succeeded in raising the intelligence of the primates to a level that even they could not reach. Made a joke about it - called them "Spartavians". Until that day, when the monkeys founded the SAS, the Special Ape Service, and began to overrun the human centers of civilization. The humans had no chance against the highly gifted animals - and soon they found themselves in a Stone Age created by the primates. All in the name of nature. But Evi was not willing to give all the power to the very hairy attackers. "Come out, come out, wherever you are! What is it? Have you lost your voice?," the Spartavian asked. She looked at the lantern in her hand. The light was dim, it's flame almost extinguished. It had used up most of its fuel over the long time of her mission. She sighed, then took a deep breath and turned the handle - which actually was an ignition mechanism. It clicked into place. A crunchy sound appeared. Suddenly, the light flickered as if it had just been supplied with new life energy. Evi counted quietly to three, rose up a little and threw the lantern as high as she could over the wall. With an almost inaudible noise the explosive disappeared from her field of vision. Nerve-shattering heartbeats later the clapping sound of two hands catching an object sounded. "But ... that's a lantern! I always wanted to have one like that"; the monkey remarked enthusiastically. "Wonderful! It will make a great addition to my front doo ..." A hollow bang cut off his last words. Slowly the warrior woman rose from her hiding place, wiping her mouth and nose. She breathed theatrically before addressing the just blown-up enemy. "Yippieyayeh! ape-face," she spat towards the quickly evaporating cloud of smoke. "Evi!" With a weak plop, similar to the distant bursting of a synapse, Evi returned to reality and looked up. The baboon on the other side of the fence stared at her with a mentally deranged look, then shrugged his shoulders and turned away. "Evi! I don't like it when you play around in front of the monkey house," Mama said sternly. "What will the neighbours think of use, when they see you talking to baboons?" "Child, you have too much imagination," Grandma said laughing before turning to Mama. "Maybe she should watch less television?" "I'll suggest it to Harold," Mama nodded and took her daughter away from the monkey cage. "But now we're going to the saltwater aquarium." "Saltwater? Are there any sharks?" the girl asked hopefully. "Sharks?" Mama laughed. "No. But little whales." The girl's eyes widened. "Whales?" she asked in disbelief. A small puddle in front of them started to move. At first the water only seemed to vibrate, rippled and splashed quietly, then it exploded into a fountain. A huge humpback whale emerged from the seething floods and crashed onto the floor slabs of the path. The huge monster crawled towards them on its pectoral fins, the remains of an arm hanging out between bloody, shredded baleen plates. "Hello Evi," the scarred monster greeted her with a sinister pirate voice. "I have learned how to eat meat." The warrioress Evi pulled her knife out of the sheath. A light smile crept on her lips, waited there for a moment and vanished, making room for an answer that you could only expect from any good warrior. "And I know how to fillet fish." ->Linked because of nipples!<-
  13. A little while ago, I got a full set of metallic paints in vibrant primary colors. I immediately felt like there was huge potential to this- you could use them to add all sorts of extra depth and interest to True Metallic techniques. And one of the things that struck me was the idea that you could use them for feathers. With many birds, feathers already have a sort of metallic shine to them, so it isn't too crazy to consider using true metallic techniques to express this. While I initial was afraid that it would be hard to keep the phoenix from looking inanimate -like a bronze statue of a bird, rather than a bird. To my surprise, I didn't have to do a lot of corrections for this, since the mini really never was in much danger of looking too inorganic.
  14. Presenting the Rawhide Dame, she's a pin-up from Kingdom Death. Not some of my best work, I made a bit of a mess painting her skin, but overall I don't think she's too bad. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  15. Presenting the Leather Queen, a Pin-up version of the Leather Armoured Survivors from Kingdom Death, hopefully she's wearing just enough to not need a nudity link. I'm pretty out of practice painting Pin-ups so she's a little rough around the edges, and I never could figure out a way to make her hair look like hair, but at least it's another one finally finished. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  16. "During the opening stages of the Great War, it was quickly discovered that the human mind was too fragile for soldiers to spend any time in areas that had been heavily corrupted by Void Space. One of the solutions to this problem was to lift the restrictions on deploying Automaton Troopers to the front-lines. Drawing power from naturally occurring energy fields and equipped with self repair and competent AI systems, they could theoretically operate indefinitely without contact with their human creators. However, despite being deployed in large numbers, in the end they did little to halt the advance of the Void. Centuries later, many can still be found and most pose a threat to the humans they once served. This particular model, now known as a Flower Knight due to the flora it spontaneously generates around itself, is not openly hostile to anyone it comes across but will not tolerate any damage to the gardens they both create and guard." Presenting the Flower Knight from Kingdom Death. This is another one from the Cupboard of Unfinished ThingsTM that's been waiting for me to bring it back to the table for a final painting session or two. It's not a patch on the many, many other Flower Knights out there on the Inter-webs, but I'm really pleased with it. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  17. Presenting The Fighter (Echoes of Death version), she's a Kingdom Death: Monster re-imagining of their existing The Fighter mini, who, in turn, was Kingdom Deaths take on a generic fighter class character. Quite pleased with this one. She took a while as I kept finding bits I'd missed hiding under her hair, and I rushed her shield in the end (it needs at least one more highlight, but my hands have been really shaky recently and I didn't want to mess it up) so I may put a bit more work in at a later date. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  18. Started working on the Echoes of Death set. I have the whole set, but I also have an appalling track record when it comes to actually finishing my Kingdom Death figures, so I'm just building and painting them one at a time. Starting with the Fighter (who's gigantic):- So far, I've made a start on her skin:- It's a basecoat of 1:1 Elf Skin/Rosy Skin with a Flesh Shade Wash. I stopped here and took a piccy so I could get some idea of where her eyes are, I think buying some sort of magnifier is in my future.
  19. https://imgur.com/W2NvtQC https://imgur.com/CoB0ov8 https://imgur.com/VPqucvu https://imgur.com/LLnJilq 'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains. The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden. However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured. In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.' Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster. I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  20. I really love it anytime I get to paint those beautiful miniatures from Kingdom Death: Monster. The Kingsman was no exception. While is pose is stoic rather than dynamic, the details on the armor just sang out. My client wanted to make sure that he wasn’t too dark (with Kingdom Death miniatures, it is pretty easy to just use a lot of dark colors) so I made sure the accenting reds were bright enough to compensate, while still getting darker towards his feet.
  21. Started a new campaign and wanted to add in a few of the expansion monsters, namely the gorm, the flower knight and possibly the dungbeetle knight. Well see how it goes but the first up was the gorm. Just getting started on it but I wanted thoughts on its direction and if someone has thoughts on increasing the creepy factor. I have noticed that the expansion monsters are a tad further down the rabbit hole than the main game. The classic gorm is all black but I thought it lacked a certain punch so I changes the head using a baby picture I found and I'm working on blending it back to a greenish blue body. Let me know if anyone has thoughts on what might increase its shock value. I'll add more pictures if people are interested as I go
  22. Presenting a Disciple of the Flower Witch (there's five of them but I'm not sure which number this one is), a mysterious denizen of the Kingdom Death world. She's also in my Kingdom Death WIP thread. Not too happy with this one, it turned out to be a much trickier mini to paint than I thought and as a result she's rather rough in places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  23. So a couple of months ago I based and primed a handful of Kingdom Death minis, to paint when I'm stuck on other things, and put them away. Now it's time to open the box... The front row is 4 Rawhide Survivors, plus 2 special Survivors (Paul and the Sun Maiden). The middle row are the 5 Flower Witch Disciples. And the back row are the Flower Knight (I will finish you one day) and the Kings Hand. I took the Rawhide Survivors and a Witch Disciple out of the box. The male Survivors skin was painted up with Dwarf Flesh > Flesh Wash > Dwarf Flesh > 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh. The female Survivors skin was done with 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh > 1:1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh/Light Flesh. Witch Disciple 1 (I don't actually know which Witch is which, so this might not be the real Disciple 1), only got a basecoat of 1:1 Rosy Flesh/Flat Flesh and a Flesh Wash, I want to at least attempt to paint her eyes and it's easiest before I finish her skin, but I'm on my last brush and it ain't too pointy no more. So that's got to wait until I have new brushes. So at the moment I'm just basecoating my Survivors. They've got Steel Blue dress thingys, Lonestar Leather on the hard leather parts and Bonewhite weapons and Skull Helms.
  24. Presenting Mrs. Silence, the female half of the Silence character class, who came in a limited Black Friday set from Kingdom Death. Despite being quite the pain in the bum to work on, she had to be assembled and painted in lots of little stages (and I never did get the two halves of her jacket to line up properly), I'm really rather pleased with the final result. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  25. The Dung Beetle Knight is one of Kingdom Death's more iconic monsters, and one of the more difficult ones to deal with. Here is a DBK that I got to do for a client. The mini is absolutely fantastic- the hardest thing about painting him is that he's been painted up very well quite a few times before- it is a little bit tough to make him unique and awesome at the same time. I shaded and highlighted the green with some contrasting colors to give him the effect you see here.
