@Monkey Sloth- 

 

I've still got the old 2nd ed codex where they had rules for these guys.  Citadel never made minis for them, though, and when they updated the edition, the exodites disappeared.

 

 

Too cool for words.

 

I loved the Dinoriders toyline.

 

Thanks.

 

I loved that old toyline too.  I remember that I never got to see the cartoon that went with it.

I only saw the vhs tape.

 

You'll likely find the vids on youtube until Mattel serves a Takedown notice.

I wont be able to touch my brushes for days now.  (They look at me with pity having seen this) 

 

Don't think like that, Odin's a professional with MANY hours and years of experience, the only way you will ever get better is to pick up those brushes and practice.

I have learned that it is best to leave television and films from the 80s in the fond places my memory has placed them.

This is the truth.  Honestly, I often love to go to Gencon and compete against some of my favorite painters.  I haven't won overall yet- it's a pretty crazy tough competition.

 

The real trick to getting better is two fold.  I try and learn new techniques and really push myself sometimes.  At other times, I use what you've learned to increase the standard of my more relaxing projects.  When I've upped my auto standards, I try to push my top painting again.

      This is an animal companion to a kobold Ranger in a module.  The character art has it light green with dark green stripes.  A little cliche, but I don’t care.
       
      There are two arm choices.  I went with the ones making it look like he was grabbing something.  Got him ready with white primer.

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I wasn't planning on ever doing any more Work In Progress threads (The number of threads I've abandoned outnumber my finished threads by a pretty ridiculous amount at this point), but I'm trying to get back into the habit of painting every day and my brain is being a real jerk about it (he'd be a lot happier if I gave up on this whole painting nonsense and just stared mindlessly at a screen all day).
      So the idea is if I post an update a day, regardless of how much progress I've made, I'll shame myself into making sure I've done enough for a worthwhile update or something.
       
      Day 1 (Which was yesterday):-
       

       
      The King and his Seahorse have been undercoated, washed and I've started on the base, I got part way through applying the pumice paste before I realised I couldn't get to the middle without getting it all over the Seahorses tail/tentacles/tail-acles?
      Today I want to try and finish the base, and maybe start on the Seahorse.

      Hello all,
       
      just finished this one up, a Ral Partha Children of the Night Megalosaurus. I told myself I was going to stay away from greens and grey, which is of course what this one ended up being.  I threw some pink highlights into his mouth and throat, which started making me think a bit about the Joker.  
       
      This guys is a dinosaur so he's a pretty hefty piece of metal.  I should probably photograph some day a normal sized person to give a comparison. He's on an oval base, no idea how big it's supposed to be. 
       
      Anyway, hope you like!
