With Games Workshop having sorted out whatever issues they were having with this, my enthusiasm has returned!

I'm determined to get at least a few more painted up before the expansions start coming out.


I heard they removed the Curse on the Cursed City. (My guess is that the new printing will have no mention whatsoever of any place once called Mournhold …)


IF I am correct, treat anything where that bit of Lore appears in print as the collectors item that it will become.

Looking forward to seeing it completed!


Thanks! It's going to be a while, he's covered in so much stuff!

Hadn't heard that theory.

Not sure we'll ever know what went wrong with the first release (GW definitely isn't going to say).




Got a bit more done.

Boots, gloves and hatband were done in Leather Brown > Brown Wash > Leather Brown > Leather Brown/Bonewhite, plus a Bronze arrow symbol on his hat.


Trousers next!

Seeing what you're doing with these is starting to tempt me into looking into picking up a box once it comes out, assuming this isn't going to be yet another fomo release. 


I hope they don't do anything silly with the release, I want to get my grubby mitts on all the expansions!




Although you can't see them all I painted his trousers (Steel Grey > Black Wash), his armour (Pure Black/Oily Steel > Oily Steel > Black Wash > Oily Steel Drybrush) and part of his rifle and hammer (Pure Black/Gunmetal Grey/Oily Steel > Oily Steel Drybrush > Black Wash).


Now I've painted it though, I'm not sure he's wearing a breastplate, I think it's actually part of his coat or a tabbard. Going to have to give it some thought.

I compromised in the end by doing his breastplate, still as a breastplate but a leather one (Scarlett Red/Leather Brown > Scarlett Red/Leather Brown/Iraqi Sand > Brown Wash with Bronze buttons).

I also added an Aluminium highlight to his metal armour, and painted his steaks (Parasite Brown/Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash > Ochre Yellow drybrush > Sepia Wash).


Belts and pouches next I think.

Got his various straps and bags done (Red Leather > Red Leather/Iraqi Sand > Brown Wash) with buckles, buttons etc. in Brassy Brass.


With him almost finished, I fired up the Random Number Generator to pick the next one:-




A long-haired, leaping vampire!

Today I finished his rifle. The stock is Pure Black/Leather Brown with various Oily Steel and Bronze bits.

I also did the sheath of his sword and dagger in Prussian Blue > Prussian Blue/Off-white > Prussian Blue glaze.

How tall is this figure?

For that matter how long is that Zweihander sword?


I've got a ruler somewhere, let's see...


He's 37mm tall (47mm including his hat), with the sword itself being 40mm.




Painted the last bits.

Painted the handles on everything Iraqi Sand with Leather Brown stripes and a Brown Wash (Not sure if the stripes look weird, I just don't like plain handles).

Also painted what it I think is a bottle (I'm going with Holy Water) in Magic Blue/Off-white with Off-white edge highlights.


Just gotta do the base now.

They look great, looks like old ivory.



Honestly I'm a bit surprised at the lack of detail.


Anyways, Jelsen is all done and off to the Show-off section:-




Time to start on the angry vampire:-




So far I've just bascoated her skin with Pale Flesh/Elf Skin and given it a Purple Wash.

Great stuff!




Had a couple of minor disasters that put a stop to any progress for the last couple of days.


First, Jelsen got knocked off the table. He now has a bent rifle barrel, and the stake part of his stake launcher pinged off into that weird void where all little model parts go when they're dropped. So I had to patch him up as best as I could.


Second, my idea for the vampires skin didn't work. The Purple Wash worked great on smaller areas like her face, but went very blotchy everywhere else. So I've had to set her aside while I rethink that one.


Been prepping the next batch instead:-




A Priestess, a big zombie (Who's getting painted next) and some rats.

      Wanted to have another crack at getting all my Warhammer Underworlds stuff painted up (I've got almost 200 to do now).
      Rather than doing them in big batches, which can get overwhelming and then go unfinished, I'm going to try and paint each team, starting with my Hedonites:-
      A group of pleasure-seekers and obsessives brought together by a mysterious entity, the Hedonites endlessly pursue new extreme sensations and experiences when not carrying out tasks for their unknown leader.

      From left to right we have Vasilios (Obsessive hunter), Despina (Thrill killer and Vasilios's sister), Polyxeni (Mistress of mirror magic), Leonidas (Broken soldier) and Dimos (Drug-addled mutant).
      I'm starting with Poly:-

      She's not an Underworlds mini, but she fits in with the set.
      Made a start on her skin (Rosy Flesh with a Flesh Wash), not looking forward to getting in under her fancy hat to paint her eyes.

      Presenting Celine, an Elf archer from the Luminth warband in the Warhammmer:- Underworlds game by Games Workshop.
      Lots of fiddly bits on this one, but she came out alright in the end.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Was rummaging thru my loose figures when ran across this old classic and thought it might be a little fun to do after Oman, his long, lost brother.

      Presenting Jelsen the Vampire Hunter from Games Workshops Warhammer Quest:- Cursed City board game.
      Pretty pleased with this one, I was worried about how to paint certain areas (Like his little tucked away face), but I think he ended up looking decent.

      Just picking up on all the posts I've missed over the last few months.  







      Battle Report! 
      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.
