A kid who works for me plays 40K, and was showing me a color scheme he liked. I asked if I could give i a shot on one of his minis, so he gave me this one to paint up. I tried to get a decent result while doing it as fast as possible. Counting priming and sealing I think this is about 2 hours and some change. I did a zenithal prime with Stynylrez, and all colors are RMS with the exception of Nuln Oil and Seraphim Sepia.

Oooh, I like how it's a lot grittier than they usually are - like a proper, in the rough and fighting kind of look to it! 

The style is apparently called "Grimdark" and there are several people putting tutorials out on it. I actually loosely followed one on YouTube for this. His looked a lot better of course :D.

      Started this guy back in 2010 and, after eleven years of on and off work (mostly off), I'm going to say he's finished. There are things I could do better now than when I started him, and certainly areas I could try to tweak more, but I'd rather save the energy/time for another figure. 54mm Games Workshop "Brother Artemis" Space Marine from the old "Inquisitor" game.  Made a few minor tweaks (repositioned the sword) and left off a few bits 'cause I didn't like how they looked.  Base was sanded down and then rebuilt with plastic card to look industrial.  Nowadays I can just buy 40mm bases that are done this way. It was actually the first part thing that got painted which meant I had to be careful when I was painting the figure! Painted primarily with Reaper paints.

      A friend asked me to do some conversions to make some Space Marine TM Drop Pods TM he had laying around into Chaos Drop Pods, aka Dread Claws TM.   Naturally I was flattered.
       
      I have three distinct ideas but any and all feedback is very welcome.
       
      Drop Pod plus a couple of these kits(lucky Prime Day find!):

      The tricky bit is that I have 4 of quite a few parts and the drop pod has a 5 fold symmetry!
       
       
       
       
      Drop Pod plus this guy (who surely comes from a long lost GW chaos mold):

      Tricky bit is that I could probably use some cheap plastic sea creatures for some more texture but haven't found the right ones at the right price.
       
       
       
      Finally something with this:
       
       
      and these 
       

       
      To make something Halloween Horror themed.

      Hey all, 
      Mods if this is not acceptable please feel free to delete. 
      I started a new project. last week. I bought the mini at a game store that I go to to paint with Ludo. I had another friend give me more minis... so I am turning this what was going to be just the one, into an army. I am still working on this one, but I thought you all might like to see it. 
      Anyways here is the Commander:

      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

      Down Under We Are Behind
      A couple of months ago the Mortal Realms magazine finally got to Australia. Near that period of time I also brought some Wargames Atlantic skeletons. Now that it is deadcember, I decided to post some of the figures I have painted.
       
      GW: Stuff I already had
      I had these GW models from when they came out, (also have the wraiths, which are 90% finished, so hopefully I should post them in the future).  

       
      GW: Mortal Realms 1 (Chain Rasps)
      Being in Australia, where chain rasps cost 70AUD for 10. The first issue of Mortal Realms (6AUD for Chain Rasps and SigMarines). Well it was hard to pass up on the value, especially since I do enjoy the chain rasp aesthetic. This were speed painted with oils. So that was a nice experience. The painted wanted to wipe itself off, but it was a lot faster than if I did it with acrylics.
       

       
      GW: Conversion
      Now the chain rasp kit has one option for one of the ten chain rasps. Yes, it's insane how much it costs for such a limited kit. I know it is push fit, but so are the Sigmarines and they come in the same size of sprue.  So being left with one nice large piece, I decided to modify the figure. Using green stuff I sculpted some robes, one hand and the weapon. A paperclip acted as arms and weapon shaft. 

      Wargames Atlantic: Skeleton Archers.
      The variety of bits on the sprue is quite nice, sadly there is only enough bows to make 8 bowmen. And the weapon variety can be said to be lacking (e.g. only ancient greek weapon, and one helmet option). I am sure you could modify some of the spears to make a long bow, but then you would be either missing some arrows or a quiver. I decided to make the maximum amount the box permitted. The helmeted head is the unmodified version from the sprue. 

       
      Wargames Atlantic: Javelins
      There was some modification on the javelins, spears. I followed a guide that was advertised on the Wargames Atlantic site. I did go a little further, by cutting one spear in half and passing both halves onto a shield arm (figure pointing). All the shields are freehand, and based on some website that had designs that were broken down by time period (I think, they were from vases or murals).


       
       
      Wargames Atlantic: The pike, that has a special name. I forgot said name.
      I may have put the shields with the semicircles missing, the wrong way around (got confused with a different shield). I noticed this too late, and did not want to modify the figures or repaint the designs. Once again he helmet is the one from the sprue. There are only eight of the pikes on the sprue, but in the end I decided to have only 6 figures hold them. The reason will become apparent later. 

       
      Wargames Atlantic: Heavy Spears.
      Now, I started doing some modifications. The spear arm of the horn blower was heavily modified, including the cutting of a thumb and using a bit of cut off sprue to make the proper one (to make it a left hand).  All but the helmet of the sword wielder are the modified versions from sprue (with the decorations being either fully removed or modified, all the decoration types were based on some helmets I found on the internet). 

       
      Wargames Atlantic: Dancing Devils
      Now, I was a little bored of making just skeletons. The kit comes with eight ram skulls. I decided to use 6 of them to make some devil figure, I decided to make them look like if they were dancing. Furthermore, to make them more devil like, I decided to give some of them amazing decorations. This is where the cut of pieces from the helmets became useful. In the end I was going into more of the medieval dancing skeletons.
