Making a Mordheim warband mostly for fun, as I don't have any locals to play with, but maybe it can create a little wave among the local Necro players. :D

So I bought these really cool minis from Heresy. Three ghouls and a necromancer. I am going to need five ghouls total, three dregs and a vampire, but first things first. 


I've based them and shaded, and are currently waiting for them to dry:


Based bronze skin tone:



Shaded with plenty of Agrax Earthshade:



Could not help myself. The necromancer was pointing at something, and I added another 'finger' from the sprue remains. 



Based with grey:

Following this with interest. I have these models in my stash.

Me too. These are my favorite ghoul models ever. Nice to see somebody painting them, as I remain intimidated by my own set.

Glued, dry brushed with base flesh tone, then drenched in Seraphim Sepia:



Necro got bleached bone skin tones and some metal details in bronze:

Cloth and weapon details based greyish brown. Bleached bone drybrushed on entire mini to generate some depth:


Comparisons for the drybrush:

Phew, and after some hours of sleep, I regenerated enough energy to finish the painting. I don't have any electric drill/file, so he'll have to live with six fingers, but I don't think that kind of mutation is this guys biggest problem. 

Now only basing remains:

      I'm just about finished with my final piece for ReaperCon, and I needed a break. I needed to paint something fun and with no consequence. I've been eyeing this sculpt from across the room, and I just decided to go for it. Nothing super crazy, just some true metallics, which I haven't done much with in some time. Enjoy!

      With my wife and I preparing to buy a house we've been clearing out a lot of our clutter to make packing and moving easier. We've also been working hard to bring in extra money too, and this project will hopefully do both.
      Today my wife signed up for a craft fair to help sell the wreaths she's been making for the upcoming holidays. From what she's heard from friends and other crafters this particular craft fair is really eclectic and pulls in quite a diverse crowd. As she told me about it that's when the idea seemed to hit us both, why not try to clear out all that terrain junk I've been hoarding?
      So instead of sitting down and painting or creating my latest joke piece I got started. First up was a couple of single tent encampments. I made one on a rounded base to better fit in a table of terrain and I made the second one squared to fit better on a grid system.
      Both pieces have their good and bad points but like usual I learn by doing; no amount of research or prep work make up for actual experience. Which is the main reason I made these single tent camps. Hopefully I've learned enough to make any subsequent larger camps better.
      Next up are a couple of joke pieces that were honestly going to get made anyway. That's right, they'll be 40k statues when I'm done with them, besides Buzz looks kinda like a space marine already. I had some glue left over so I also started making some sci-fi barrels and I know I'll be making a ton of those.

      The last piece of the night is going to be a simple 40k watchtower. At the moment it's really just in its infancy. The main features are finished barring creating a door and applying some details to the piece. 

      Now before anyone gets too excited, I'm not selling any of these pieces online or anything like that. These are literally pieces that are made to be sold for less than five bucks or so and are really only being made to clear out my hobby hoardings.

      Here's the bones Cave Troll!  I painted some of the pustules red with white-heads on them...very gross and troll-ey.  :)

      Here is my Knight Templar.  This is the first model I painted after about 5 years of not painting any miniatures.
