Patrik battles his unpainted miniatures - October 2015 edition

Recommended Posts

Continued from here


Focusing on finishing Ulfred.


Some highlights on the face and hands. Perhaps also the vague hint of eyes? I really hate painting eyes... >.<




Various highlights on the rest of the model.






I think he's coming along nicely. Now onto shading.

Thanks! I've gone over the figure with some inks and then some highlight on top of that. I'm calling it ready for prime time. Here he is pre varnish.






Very nice, and don't beat yourself up about the eyes.  I don't know very many painters who find it their favorite part of a mini.


That does not surprise me :) I just never seem to reliably be able to find the right brush, amount of paint on said brush and the right consistance for said paint. It just takes me forever to get a decent result.

At first I ment to go continue with Maika, Bolverk or Captain Whistlocke but I have since reconsidered. Since it is the month of Halloween I figured that should dedicate my time to paint monsters. Hence I finished my latest prepainted purchuses and have now moved on to bunch of figures that I've been eyeing for a long time: the Red Box Games Wraiths!


Two of them primed and drybrushed white.



Two poor photos of them all basecoated.

Very nice!  Love those wraith minis


Thanks! I think they're coming along nicely. I really like the figures. From what I've read Tre himself isn't to pleased with them though. I have no idea why, I think they're great!


Shading on the armor and weapons. I've also did a wash of red ink over the cloth.  And while I had the black ink I also went over the bases (which are made with milliput and stamped from a premade base).

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.

      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...

      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
