In The Worlds In My Head, there exist two elemental races with a common creation myth and an undying enmity: The Nathi (hereafter referred to as the "Elemental Nathi") and the Silmn. Both humanoid, the Elemental Nathi body was a black light-eating metal and you felt rather than saw their features.  The Silmn were creatures of exquisite beauty with bodies of crystalline flesh - appearing as normal humans made of translucent frosted glass.

 

Centuries of war were, of course, inevitable as the races spread across the galaxy and finally met Humanity.  There now exists a loose confederation of Humanity allied with the Silmn, Humanity allied with the hybrid race resulting from Elemental Nathi mixing with Humans (disconcertingly also called "Nathi") and out in the far galactic rim, the Elemental Nathi and their spiderlike network of influence.

 

The Silmn have fared badly in the war, and it is only due to the appearance of The Seraph that they have managed to hold their ground.  None can fault their courage and determination however, and here is a platoon of them in the adaptive armor that has served them for decades:

Assembly and painting:

1.  Decapitate a bunch of Bones NOVA troopers.

2.  Recapitate them with the helmets of ancient hoplites with the crest removed.

3.  Modify their guns into obvious energy weapons

4.  Spray white with a bones-friendly primer

5.  Abandon the project for 6 months

6.  Glop on thinned RMS Snow Shadow.  Let it dry and work its self-shading magic.

7.  Paint the metals brass.

8.  Heavily wash with :  1pt RMS Black Ink, 2pts RMS Flow Improver, 2pts RPP Gloss Finish

9.  Highlight metals with MSP Honed Steel

10.  Base.

11.  ?

12.  PROFIT!

      Hello forum family,
      wanna show you this very nice mini; I know, I'm late (or extremely early...), but I was busy with a bust and did not found the time to paint anything else :P
      This is a speedpaint (for my standard) I've painted her mostly wet-blending; my attempt was to create a creepy looks but not too much (she is still a Christmas ghost!).
      I'm pretty happy of her, nothing special, but it took me a couple of hour to paint her so I'm satisfied :)



      Hope you'll like her as much as I do :P
      Every C&C is, as always, more than welcome!
      Oh, and... Merry Xmas!  :°D

      Here are a bunch of Wizkids unpainted minis, speed painted in 1 hour or less spent on each, and no fancy basing either.  The latter ones are based on Reaper bases, I think the Wizkids bases are too thin.
       
      Oxen (2) - SKU WZK73099


       
      Crocodile - WZK90051


       
       
      Heroic Statue - WZK73864



       
       
      Dopplegangers - WZK90019


       
       
      Grell & Basilisk - WZK90022

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.

      Hello forum Family, Ciccio is back with more awful minis! 
      I'm trying to get the Blood Rage minis painted ATM, and well... no problem with big guys like the troll or the frost giant, but the smaller minis... O  M  G!
      The worst sculpt I had to paint in my life... really CMON?
      Anyway, is a game, I don't pretend the super quality, and do not need to paint every mini perfectly...
      Let's get it started:

      the whole party (sorry for the bad pic...):


      The Valkyrie:

       
      The Soldier of Hel:

       
      The Volur Witch:


      The Dark Elf:

       
      The Dwarf Chieftan:


      As you can see nothing special, tabletop standard.
      Not so "Speed painting" cause of the lack of detail/bad sculpt, anyway from 1 hour (fro the Witch) to 4 hours (the Valkyrie).
      Hope you'll like them. 
      C&C welcome as always.
      Thank you!

      We were basically on apocalypse watch at work today, so I decided to take my mind off it for a little while at lunch with a speedpaint (60 minutes). Over the weekend I prepared a handful of Ral Partha individuals, inspired by my recent trip to Cincycon, so I brought a group of four with me today.
       
      I tried this guy as a warm-up; it’s been a while since I painted a true 25 metal individual. I wanted to use lighter colors because I usually tend towards dark.  I hoped that the Heart Throb Pink over the Cinnamon Red would look faded.  It needs more blending to stand up to be photographed at this level of enlargement.  I’m also not sure what the extra layer of cloth at the right (but not left) wrist is suppose to be, so I painted it grey. 
       
      I will post a picture of him based, hopefully tomorrow.
