  1. I recently acquired the latest of Games Workshops Warhammer Quest games:- The Cursed City. I'd actually like to completely paint one of these things for once, and thought a project thread might help! First, I built everything (Well, maybe everything. Games Workshop continues to be kinda weird about this game, so I'm not sure if it's getting expansions or not):- And then made a spreadsheet. I can't batch paint, so even simple minis (like the rats and skeletons) I've put in small groups to help maintain momentum. I rolled a 5 (actually I rolled a 30
  2. Hello there! Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I miss out on the interesting units, and just buying heroes gets rather expensive! Then I discovered their Underworlds game, getting little bite-sized versions of the various factions (often with fancy bases!), and now I'm obsessed. This year I want to try and put a dent in this particular pile of plastic (or, at least cancel out the new ones I'm getting), and thought a project
  3. Presenting Brutogg Corpse-Eater, my first finished adventurer from the game Cursed City by Games Workshop. Had a lot of fun painting this guy, I experimented by giving him grey-hued skin to represent his unhealthy eating habits (he eats zombies) and it worked better than I thought it would. Annoyingly though, I had to leave the bits under his coat unpainted (just couldn't get a brush up there), nobody will notice unless they turn him upside down, but it still bothers me that he's technically "Unfinished". As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  4. Presenting the Brewmistress, a Goblin Mage from Games Workshop, this diminutive herbalist can be found plying her trade along the winding road between Veilmouth and Silverton. For two coppers she'll let you take a swig of whatever she's brewing at the time, while her potions are always beneficial, it's probably best not to consider what's in it. Despite getting a little lazy with the ingredients rack towards the end, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  5. Presenting my Beastman Champion and true child of Atmos (In my own fantasy setting I base some of my Games Workshop stuff in, Beastman are a race of former humans who were changed by worshipping an ancient, goat-headed god called Atmos. Occasionally, an actual goat-headed Beastman will be born amongst them and will be considered Atmos's offspring, they then get all the best food and stuff and grow up to be one of the leaders or shamans of the various tribes.) Who is from the Warhammer: Underworlds range by Games Workshop. I'm super pleased with how this guy turned out, but I really
  6. Presenting the Ogre Tyrant by Games Workshop, he is very heavily armed. This one took a while, it's very much one of those minis where the more you work on it, the more details you find. I am very pleased with how he turned out though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  7. Presenting the 'Shroomancer, part of the Gooblapalooza set from Games Workshop who are all Goblin Wizards with different powers. This one alters the reality around him by getting really high on mushrooms, considering his "creations" appear to be attacking him this doesn't seem to be the most reliable of powers. Really pleased with how this one turned out, I think the super cartoony sculpt just gelled well with the way I paint. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  8. The unrelenting, swarming, terrifying tide that is known as the Skaven... Also known as "skrit skrit of death-death to all, but maybe save a few bakers as they make delicious cookies and cupcakes!" I'm playfully blaming a wolf for this thread, but it's a different one for a change. This time it was @Chaoswolf! This is going to be a looooong project. Arguably it already is, since most of the initial contents of this army were purchased over a decade ago, but I have a tentative goal in mind of "fully finished by 2020" which gives me a year and eight months to work on i
  9. My next project is these Bloodreavers and Slaughterpriest for Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer Quest. Enjoy!
  10. I've never been much of a fan of GW. I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....). And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two). But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever. So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a
  11. I don't usually paint Warhammer miniatures, but there is a local painting contest which has very specific rules so I figured why not. I've never entered a painting contest before, so there is no time like the present. I've decided to carry on with my experiments in object source lighting and apply wht I've learned so far in this project. One of the big challenges will be doing the OSL in the metallic armour of the knight. I've never tried that before. The two figures are "Neave Blacktalon" and "Wight King". Here is my planned layout. The white line is to align their line of s
  12. Went to an intense NNM metal class with Banshee last weekend. we started out with either this guy or a pace marine. I still haven't ever painted space marine. It was a lot of color theory, breaking figures down into simple shapes and knowing the intensity of various paints and inks. Im was not sold enough on the green to carry it over onto the shield, so I just left that as base NMM We also painted a 75mm knight from noctura, but I didin't get anywhere near finishing that one, not sure I ever will....
  13. I added three more heroes to my warband/adventuring party. Bretonnian Paladin Imperial Noble Warrior Priest
  14. I have finished the Pink Horrors now.
  15. I often get to paint up forces in some pretty interesting color schemes, and here's a nice example. This force was going with an all blue theme- the core color for Tzeentch. The part that made it really shine was the fact that most of the minis were affiliated with other chaos factions. So, if you ever wondered what Khorne or Nurgle characters would look like if the Changer of Ways got to them, here they are. The other thing that made this force special is the fact that many of these chaos warriors are converted from Stormcast eternals. My client did the conversions, but I really
  16. Just a little while ago, I got to paint up a full force of Stormcast Eternals riding various drakes. I was a little surprised by just how many Stardrakes fit into the force, and there were quite a number of Dracothian Guard as well (I only got a couple of them photographed). Here they are in their glory.
  17. I'm not a big fan of the Stormcast Eternals Games Workshop put in their Age of Sigmar line. However, looking at some things other people have done, I realized there were basically two things I hated: The immortals-style faces, and the all-gold paint scheme. The heads aren't bad in-and-of themselves, but when every unit sports the same derpy face, it makes them look less interesting. The all-gold paint scheme made it harder to pick out details. So, I thought I'd try fixing that. As you can see, I went with a primarily steel paint for their armor with the gold functioning
  18. Here is the Stardrake- known to the base masses as a "dragon." He, of course, is from Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar line, where the setting is populated by Ogors, Aelfs, Oruks and Duardin, and definitely does not contain Tolkienesque races like Ogres, Elves, Orcs and Dwarves. To be honest, I think it is the best "dragon" that I've seen from Games Workshop. It was a pretty nice one to paint up. Anyway, here are some pictures for you.
  19. Presenting the Blood Secrator from Games Workshops Age of Sigmar box set. I'm not sure what a Blood Secrator does, but it involves wearing a vest made of skulls and hitting people with a nifty-looking (but undoubtedly highly impractical) quadruple headed axe. Had this guy on 'The Shelf of Shame' for awhile, it's a very nice mini (very 3 dimensional if that makes any sense) but when you have shaky hands the prospect of painting all the bits tucked behind all the other bits is pretty nerve-wrecking! Despite that I think he ended up looking pretty good. As always, any comments or crit
  20. Painted these up for my FLGS's monthly contest. This month's theme was "brotherhood." My mind immediately went to the French Revolution, and its motto of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. Only got the one picture before I tossed it to the game store and went to drive to spend Thanksgiving with my folks. I might toss some more up when I get them back.
  21. I entered a painting contest at my local gaming store this past weekend. They provided primed and ready miniatures, paints, and brushes. Most of the miniatures were from the Age of Sigmar boxed set. I chose a Prosecutor which is a large winged, flying character. The Reaper site insists on uploading the pictures sideways so if anyone would like to read my review and see my three hours of handiwork go check it out: http://www.dethstruck.com/2015/09/22/warhammer-age-of-sigmar-event-or-babys-first-painting-contest/ And if so inclined give my Facebook page in my signature a like or two.
  22. Another old Troll today. This figure is one of Michael Perry's efforts that redefined the look of Warhammer Trolls back in 1992 for 4th Edition. So leaving that narrow era of 3rd that "purists" feel is "Oldhammer". With 4th Edition WHFB, the armies began to be overhauled and have their looks unified in many ways, putting an end to the "rough and ready" and slightly chaotic look that forces and their ranges had previously. The old C20 trolls were retired and replaced with the new "Stone Trolls" and "Swamp Trolls", sculpted by Michael Perry. Although the Swamp Trolls were superseded
  23. How do you best follow up a post featuring a Dwarven Slayer? With Trolls, of course! I've shown two of these trolls before, just two weeks past a year ago now, as it happens. Last week, while stuck for something to paint I asked Marouda to choose some models for me to finish and as a result, I finally got a third finished for them. Hill troll suffered a broken wrist many years ago, and with my meager skills of the day I "repaired" it by pinning and then wrapping wire around the join, as though it were bound with rope. Not the neatest of jobs, but it works passably, and I've no
  24. As part of my "Clearing the Painting Desk" push that I've been on for the past few months, I'm also including "Renovations" as valid. Turning old models that have been sitting unused in cases for years into models that I'm once again happy enough with to display or game with is something that really feels worthwhile. Sometimes it just takes a rebasing, other times it also requires touching up, and other times it requires a significant repaint of parts of the model. These two date from at least 1988, as they were both part of those waves of models released in conjunction with Realm of
  25. To mirror the Bloodreaver I posted a little while ago, here's my test Liberator for the Stormcast Eternal half of my Age of Sigmar boxset:- Don't think he's as good as my Chaos dude, but then I'm not a big fan of the basic Stormcast troopers. I am pleased with how his armour turned out though (I was determined not to go with the official scheme of metallic gold armour, it would've made me lazy), even if it is pretty time consuming. As always, any comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
