Looking good as usual @R2ED! I like the purple look!


Life kinda got in the way this last weekend so I'm getting a move on the basilisk tonight. Probably won't get much done beyond blocking in colors, but I'll take what I can get. I also have some RCL minis I need to churn out, so hopefully I can get a big painting weekend in this week. 


In other news, this 5.5 pledge manager thing is not good for my wallet.

@billeecatstotally understand you on that pledge thing. The worst. 

I have games and minis coming through KS.

The Witcher.  

Lasting tales

Xmen unlimited

Fantasy minis

Darkest dungeon

And more dungeons and lasers.  I need to stop. Seriously.

Sadly, I have to travel for work this week.  No painting this weekend for me.  I do hope y'all get your stag, Reaper, bookkeeper, and basilisks all done.  Can't wait to play catch up for whatever gets picked next.  If i don't see a pick, I'll make one for the team by Sunday.

Got this done this morning, forgot to post it. Had a lot of fun with this one. The freehand spots were a challenge, but a couple careful thin glazes of bright turquoise blended it well I thought.


Colors used:

Creamy Ivory

Sepia liner(mixed with brush-on sealer to make a wash)

Bright Turquoise

Nuln Oil

Basilisk Green (+ Pure White for highlight)

Lotus Orange

Pure Black

Hey everyone, looks like there wasn't a post for the next picks.  I promised to make that pick if i didn't see someone choice, so here we go.


Animal and elemental:

1061 and 1075




Since we're doing two week stretches, these will be up for completion on sept 5th.


That will be good for me since I'm still traveling.  Good luck!

      Since i didn't have my paints with me while on break, i was hungry to get back to it.  I guess i wasn't as full of turkey and stuffing as i thought. 

      As I'm posting this, i saw on his left leg that he's got an unpainted seal.  Dang it! 
      I made the bands on the blade smaller. 
      Added more metal details. 
      Added more accent color. 
      Tested two new paint color (silver grey, red. And German Grey). Each did great. 
      His backpack gave me some trouble.  I was gluing it on, but the post didn't push in and then it broke off.  Ended up doing some surgery back the but it's on.

      Got another one in this week.  I'm on a roll!
      Still doing my work on these marines looking for a color combo I really like.  I completed Red, Blue, Green, and Black.  I've got 2 more color schemes to test, which are Grey and White.  We'll see in the coming days how much energy I've got for them.
      This one came out pretty good. 

      I still need to base and touch up his sword with more color, but he's pretty much done outside of that.  Enough for me to post in WIP.
      The process was pretty good and I'm learning that these sub-assemblies help a TON in getting to those insanely hard to reach spots.  I took pictures of what the sub assembly looks like just to what my method was and hopefully helps others struggling.

      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.

      Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set.  So so so much to paint still. 
      Here we go.  The necromancer.

      I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo.  That stuff has terrible coverage.  Chalky.   And thinning it makes it take forever to dry.  Not a fan.  Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."  
      I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works.  I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't.  She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.

      Got the first set of 5 done.  I bought 5 Santas (one was in my bones 5), 4 Mrs. Claus, 4 Christmas mouselings.   I'm preparing a holiday ornament and diorama for friends to give them. 
      Santa is now complete, but still need to get him on his base with Mrs. Claus.

      Battle Report! 
      I painted my first santa with a black primer.   It took about 4 or 5 layers to get red to actually show and not look washed out.  I just happened across a youtube video where Paintman Journeying was talking about how laying pink under red will help coverage and saturation.   Was worth a try for how many red clothes characters i was about to do. 
      I then took all of them to base coat with airbrush. And not only that, it gave me a great way to go through more of the BCA pink i have 5 bottles of.   Finally i can use it on more things!   Warning for others: BCA pink has weird coverage. It's very very very very chalky. I hadn't noticed it on my small parts i use to paint it on like tongues or trinkets, but on big areas i really noticed.  
      The assembly like setup on these worked great. Painted in this order:
      Coat, pants, hat first. 
      Santa's gift bag (different red)  next. 
      Cream trims next. 
      Teddy bear.
      Washes on face and bear. 
      Gloves, boots, and belt. 
      Packages and trim. 
      So far so good.
