Beyond all comprehension they had lost the asset. They knew the Emperor wouldn't tolerate such incompetence which only left them one option, they had to take it back. The Rupert called for his best and brightest, well the best and brightest the Guard had to offer. The Rupert quickly briefed the squad's sergeant before sending him off with a gruff, "Get it done". The "Fabulous" squad charged the greenskins with cries of, "That's my purse" and "I don't know you!" Through difficult fighting the "Fabulous" squad prevailed, but not without heavy casualties. Once the bodies, both human and xenos, were cleared away it was time for some much needed refreshment. The Rupert and the sergeant approached the asset looking forward to a much deserved reward. And now for some "better" pictures of the Soda/Beer machine from Bones IV. This was a ton of fun to paint and I honestly can't wait to sneak it onto my next 40K table; I see my friends getting a real kick out of this. Though the text isn't as crisp as I'd like I can always come back later after more practice. For now I'm really happy with this piece though.
Here my version of the "Dance of death" from Reaper Bones IV. I'm still very hesitant to show it off because till the last second I was really insecure about the outcome. First of all, the palette: right now I kinda like it, but I'm not 100% sure about 1. the base and 2. the color of the lower dragon. My first idea was to paint it white, and make it reminiscent of a battle between England's white dragon and Wales red dragon. But to paint white is always a challenge and given I'm not that familiar with the material, I decided to go with the other hard color to paint. Now it just depicts a fictional encounter between two forgotten realms dragons: Tchazzar, infamous red wyrm, and Mergandevindasander, rumoured to have lavender eyes. And secondly, I think I'll never fully appreciate bones... I like the fact that it's cheap, but the texture is just not the same and there's something very off on its maleability. It always makes me get tired of painting it and abandon ship without giving as much attention to details as I usually do. IMO those two dragons are pretty nice, and if I had to object to something, it will be about their tails, a bit too plain and simple. Any feedback incredibly welcome ^^ And if you have instagram and want to follow my gallery there... even more grateful: it's @albertnyarla
Well, I managed to fight my way back into hobbying...at least a little bit. The wraiths were some of the minis I was anxious to get at, so I wasted no time. I thought about doing the expected (black and grey), but that left me uninspired. So I thought about ROY-G-BV-ing them. But I didn't have any OYs that I thought would be appropriate. So I just muddled my way through. My apologies to Bob Ridolfi, your sculpts are wonderful and deserve better than what I can throw on them. The new wood paints were brought out to work the haft. Muddy Soil served as the base for Bloodstain Red and Clotted Red Nightmare Black followed by Carbon Grey and Glacier Mist. This was a little too close to the Blue Greys triad, I was hoping for something further off. The robes were started with Coal Black, and then hit with Peacock Green. Brilliant Green finished them. The tabard was started with Pure Black, followed with Stormy Grey, and then finished with Cloudy Grey. The robes were started with Pure Black, then followed up with Dark Elf Shadow and Dark Elf Skin. This is one of my favorite combinations. I love the Blue Greys triad. Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, and then a 50/50 mix of Twilight Blue and Snow Shadow. I think this is my favorite. I wanted a monument reminiscent of marble, so I started with Leather White, Pure White, and finished with Sparkling Snow. The robes were done with Regal Purple, Monarch Purple, and Royal Purple. The difference is a little more obvious in person, but I was having troubles with the camera.
It's a Snek!! Because he came pre-glued and sat on my desk staring at me for a week, he became my first Bones IV miniature .. I tried for an 'awakening statue' feel, but am not sure that I pulled it off to my satisfaction, but either way, fun to paint. Painting this guy, I had the wild idea for a diorama that will never see the light of day.. A pair of these fellows at the top of a grand staircase tomb entrance.. but the second one (and this is why it'll never happen) is bent and twisting towards the adventurers that have just passed between the two snake guardians.. Unfortunately, I have no friends with mad wood carving / 3-d modeling / sculpting talents :)
