Nice work on the tartan.  I like your color choice.  Compliments his other equipment really well.

Thanks! The tartan is kinda what a lot of the non-skin palette built around, so I'm glad it worked!

I really like those Trollbloods!  You painted them up great! 

 

I need to get me a couple of those. 

Thanks! The trolls are not my faction, but I've painted a few of them now and they're great models. Aside from the Privateer Press Assembly Problem, of course, but that's a given for any metal Warmahordes model...

They almost convinced my son and I to buy into them at GenCon last year, but one of the concerns I had was that they looked very assembly-heavy - that, my already enormous (to me) backlog, the looming Bones KS and my shrinking wallet (found them on day 3 lol) .. 

I do have their gencon warmachine freebie in a box somewhere, but i don't think it's got a label though (might have been an exclusive from gencon)

 

That guy looks awesome.. maybe I'll have to go troll their website one of these days and get a troll or two.. 

 

edit:  it wasn't buried too deeply - there are 2 figs in the package.. but neither is labeled

The plastic models have more parts than necessary, but are well keyed and easy to assemble, so grabbing a couple of starter boxes wouldn't be too bad. It will take a little time, but Assembly shouldn't be frustrating. It's a fun game and they do great organised play support if you have a FLGS.

 

The metal models from PrivPress have always been notorious for bizarre multipart assembly. I have assembled single human figures with parts in the double digits.

 

The gencon "beer model" in 2017 was the "Voltaic Vixen." I'd guess that's what you have...a woman, one hand on her hip, the other holding a staff with a steam whistle on the end, boots that look like bell-bottoms and a midriff-baring chestplate? (Called "beer models" because there's a local-to-Gencon brewery that makes a PrivPress-themed beer each year in conjunction with the model)

      Well, you know what season it is as the leaves start turning and the air starts getting chilly...

      ...the season of the WITCH!



      Specifically, here's Dita, the Steampunk Witch, 80006. Her techno-accessories look like they put her well after the 17th century, but let's not forget a) prostheses were actually very advanced for those who, like Gotz of the Iron Hand, could afford them, and b) WITCHCRAFT.  

      Here's more Dita.
       
      And that description, witch*craft* is a powerful thematic indicator. Witches are hobbyists and craftspeople. They make things. In a fantasy schema or in a folktale context, this is what distinguishes them from your average sorceror, warlock, or diabolist. The old witch from "Hansel and Gretel" was a baker and confectioner. Baba Yaga makes bone lamps and flying cookware. The witches from Macbeth make horrible stews. Bread and herbs, roots and wax, comb and yarn, thread and needle and pins;  imbued with will and spell and spite and hate, these are the tools of the witch. 

      (An artificer is different in that they require witch-*engineering.*) 

      So here's a horrible little moppet with a rusty knife. This one was fun to paint. Comes from the Familiars 2 set, 77096. Hard to parse until there's a layer of paint on her. A big mop of tousled yarn curls, a single button eye, a little smock and bag. I love the wobbly toddling pose of the thing.


      The little Creepy Rag Doll from the Familiar Set 2 (77096) is a bitty wee thing. Here's a close-up, penny for scale. 


      Click for thorough turnaround. 

      And here's Estra, the Iconic Spiritualist. A glorious sculpt--it's good to see more elderly women. She's got all kinds of shawls and wraps and ribbons and scarves. Fun to paint, especially with some eastern-European-inspired designs. (Also with her is a cat stolen from Edna the Cat Lady.) Definitely a wise woman. A witch? There are rumors in the town, as there often are about old women who live alone and have cunning and practical skills.


      More angles (and witches know all about angles; ask Keziah Mason):

      More witch-crafts! Here are three horrible wooden "Mannikins" from Warmahordes' Circle Orboros. They are definitely NOT fae or natural plants, being lashed together with cord and twine. Hobbled, ungainly, bent and jointed in ways that seem viscerally wrong and cruel.




      Is she calling them forth or putting them down? The sharp-tongued biddies and resentful burgomeisters know which story they are going to tell, either way.

      First real attempt at object source lighting.
       
      Model was zenithal primed and painted using glazes and inks

      The last of my recent work. This month I felt like tackling a few drow for practice, I have a set of raging hero's dark elves been dying to do but first want to get really comfortable painting drow so ran across him in my old figures and my mind instantly whispered DROW.

      This is yet another of my metal trade bin finds! I picked him out because he looked like he was wounded, and I love minis in poses other than at-arms. It turns out that he's clutching a dagger on his chest, and not a wound. Also, I'm spoiled by Reaper's wonderful faces. This one is a little bit flat, though that may be due to being in the bin. Anyway, not my best work, but I painted this in a few hours!
