Just picking up on all the posts I've missed over the last few months.
Turns out squigs are not just funny looking, they are funny to paint. I loved these models and really found they took amazing to dry brushing. I was testing colors and layers.
* dry brush was excellent. Used some cheapo makeup brushes and they did great.
* i used a purple glaze over orange and then built it up with orange further. Looked good.
* blue came out great, but i don't know what layers to use on it to give contrast like the purple orange one.
*teeth are all solid and look good.
*skin folds are natural looking and added freckles on some are much better than expected.
* the yellow one was testing out transparent paints and it went on like a dream.
*not too many complaints really. These all came out more or less as expected.
* challenged by how low they are to the base and getting them with ground effects.
*never painted mushrooms and wasn't sure how to go about it.
When the Space Pope absolutely needs someone to die very publicly and messily, he calls upon the services of a Mother Superior.
One woman armies with no regard for the collateral damage they cause, towns, cities (and, according to legend, the occasional planet) are reduced to ruins as the Mother Superior single-mindedly pursues her target.
Often the eternal struggle to protect Mankind from the Horrors that lurk beyond the stars requires subtlety, but occasionally, you want to send a stonking great message about the consequences of meddling with things you don't understand.
Presenting a Mother Superior (AKA Morvenn Vahl, a hero from Warhammer 40k's Sisters of Battle faction), a terrifyingly unstoppable force of divine judgement.
Bit of a mixed bag this one, I'm happy with a lot of it, but some bits could be better (like the terrible job I did on her face). At least she's finally done now.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
Finished the Paint job on another marine. I'll need to come up with a cool base. I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors.
Here's the first one of this set up.
Here's the purebred.
Give me feedback. If you'd like this black background let me know.
This was my entry for the quarterly contest. I decided to paint him as though he was in a cave with maybe some luminescent crystals or mushrooms. I love the sculpt and will probably eventually get another to paint "normally". Or maybe not since I have hundreds of other minis to paint!
Wanted to continue working on my Underworld stuff, but didn't fancy the last two minis I had left in the previous thread, so thought I'd roll them into a new one.
This time we've got 10 randomly chosen minis, the two dudes from the last thread and the whole Sea Elf team (They felt too fragile to pack away after I built them).
Here we have Cyrille and Celine (A pair of Elven Peacekeepers) and Snoz a Goblin Scout with his wolf Fang.
This set consists of Zellotl (Lizardman Warrior), Freshly Awake (a newly risen Skeleton), Frilna (a companion beast to the Fey Elves), Sorcha (battle-hardened Mercenary) and Ailithir (Evil Knight).
Yrkill and Jafari (from the previous thread) plus their companions Sigmundur and Sethos (because someone or something is determined to have me paint these particular teams). Sethos isn't an Underworlds figure but is a matching Cultist from the OOP Warhammer Quest:- Silver Tower game on an old resin base I found.
And this is the Sea Elf team.
We've got Gaelin (he's a Fish), Tanjaya (the Warrior at the back), Indra (a Summoner), Surya (a Harpooner with no eyes) and Orym (he's a Crab).
Making a start on Sorcha:-
Painted the furry collar on her cape.
It's a base of Cold Grey with a Black Wash and the drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white (Only on the upper shoulder bits).
Not sure if I should paint her head next or the armour that's close to it, either way I think I'll make a mess.
