Thanks Graven , wish I could take credit for it, but it was just a layer of codex grey, Nuln oil and then codex grey again.

Definitely going to give Kimiko a red belt, otherwise she is far too monochrome and doesn’t match the rest of the gang as we’ll a show I’d like. Also the texture paint for the ice I put on her has crackeled last night while I slept, so some touch up needed there anyway. In the mean time I’m working on some scatter rocks that I thought of yesterday. Took some transparent clear vase fillers and glued them to 1” circles of plasticard. These vase fillers I thought were random shapes are actually molded to certain shapes ....why? Anyway just started on them with a layer of Chardon Granite.


Red belt added and group photo.

Thanks Shaso

Rocks and Ice scatter pieces, both made from same clear vase fillers.

I think I’ll hit the rocks with dawn stone (grey drybrush) again to tone down the brown gold.

Okay okay okay , the sculpt is just gorgeous and gives a lot of aid to the look, but I did try harder to make it look nice as she is a special lady .

Not much to show as it’s a busy week, I did grab a pack of the new deep cuts 2” round bases in the clear today. $4.99RRP for 10 clear plastic large bases . They will be used for a variety of terrain pieces.

They also come in 1” and both are also available in black. I chose clear just in case.

If all goes as planned I’ll have a mostly free morning tomorrow with a stop off at another local hobby shop that I don’t often frequent. They do more model trains, RC cars and stuff. I’m looking for a few particulars which will be put into immediate use if I find them.

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping in .

Edit: few hours of sleep and an hour or so of desk time and voila.

Couple of 2” terrain bits for multiple genres.

Edit2: I got four of these lanterns from a super dungeon explore kit. Too plain looking for my tastes, but decided to throw som astrogranite debris on it to make it look like worn stone.

Also after my dentist checkup I got a bottle of latex rubber to make some trees.


Theo's getting back into GW specialist games pg 44 @ 2019/03/14 12:17:27


Post by: Theophony


Well the latex for the tree armatures had hardened on the shelf at the store. I took it back because it was like contact cement not like a paint and all of theirs were bad/old, so no tree progress.

I did however finish the large lantern.



Oh, I know I have said before I was going to start this huge project, but.....

and these are madrill heads...right?

Thanks Vik, the trees are a wire frame and you brush on coats of the latex which then allow paint and flock to stick to the tree. I’ll link the video in a little while, I’ve been wanting to do this for some time, but never found the latex....wonder why . Hot glue could work, but this would actually be easier to brush on and not leave strings.



The heads are those of Demogorgon from a limited D&D collector series kit I found at Miniature Market a couple years back. It was a $100 kit that I think I got for $30-40 because the bad was damaged . Here’s a picture of it from when I had it almost completely set up. Zombicide figure next to its foot for scale.

uff...that´s big...this will be a nice eyeopner on your shelf for sure!!!

and i see your point on the tree... your way has more control of course! if you lack the latex...what about PVA instead then? this is basically the same stuff...(give or take some ingredients...) and less expensive and probably at home already...

Exactly what I wanted with Demogorgon, a centerpiece model, I bought it to use as a greater demon for a beasts of chaos army before they redid the whole Universe with AOS.

I might give the wire wool a shot, I’ve watched that video before, I LOVE MEL , I just like the look of Luke Towans trees a lot more. Plus I made my own flock from sawdust and I think it will function better on the other tree frames.

Uppity Samurai is Uppity


Also stopped by the FLGS, I’ve been watching the consignment shelf and they had a brand new starter box for Dark Ages: path to glory. It’s gone from the original ask price of $60 for it and the Forsaken rulebook(started back during the cmon sale) and it went down to $15, so I grabbed it.

Oh I know on the sawdust, but I made plenty and kept stirring and kept it dry by not putting in too much paint. I’ve flicked a whole 3’x3’ table with it.

The deals are real, but then they all want to be painted.

Thanks Vik, I’ve done so much orange lately that I didn’t want to do any on here and most people have plenty on their versions. I guess most of the art has him as an orange/green beast, but I wanted a little different and the fur has brought that orange brown out just enough in my mind.

Anyway, I did a bit more last night/this morning, I’m not sold on the arm, the green I used to shade the scales is too glowy, I might just paint over it with a really dark green or try a grey... suggestions welcome there.

I also painted the ruins to be more, started with Slaanesh grey as the base, heavy wash of leviathan purple, liberal coating of dawnstone drybrush and then Nuln oil. Just enough purple comes through to give it some depth and not just be shades of grey.



I’m pleased with how the chest is turning out. The images I’ve seen has a yellow orange energy coming out of his chest straight down the center. I used tyrant skull drybrush heavily and then a lighter drybrush of terminates stone then a wash of casandora yellow. I’m tempted to leave it at that, but I might add some fuegan orange to it in the extreme center line of the chest.

Thanks Cam , the juices are flowing again with this project.

Decided to try something else for the arm. Starting from a purple base with druchi violet wash to start.

While that was drying I decide the face needed more color so first layers started.

Unfortunately I’m at work now, so no more progress today

The purple is an improvement over the more vivid green. The whole thing is developing nicely. The extra attention to the face is looking particularly good.

I do have army painter paints as well, but unlike most people I don’t like the dropper bottles as you waste so much trying to squirt out just the right amount. Also sometimes they are just too watery, YMMV though.

Thanks Youashock, still not sold on the purple....thought maybe dark green to grey, or back to orange not sure right now.

Anyway, just home from work, so painted the faces only a mother of demons would like.

For a covering over the wire trees have you considered tissue / PVA?
You can use any tissue paper; soak it in PVA/Water and wrap it around the tree. You can build up thick areas to manipulate into shapes, add the root spread at the base, stumps of branches, etc.
It can get tedious about the thinner branches, but stop early and hide the uncovered ones with foliage.
See my Mononoke piece, that's what I used for the trees on the base.

Good job on your current beastie.
The sculpts of the faces remind me of the beast at the end of Big trouble in little china...

I’ve had him for years and always wanted to paint him, but was afraid like you said, but what’s the worst that could happen? He gets a Theophony style crummy paint job.

Well unfortunately the purple will most likely disappear, I’m liking the basecoat on the legs, but maybe the green and purple will work together...

No pic of the legs and tail, not much time and spring break for wife and kiddos. I did just order fake bamboo for my Bushido terrain, coming from China. See it in 2-3 weeks.

Exhausting week, little time to do much of anything.

Received the missing Dark Elf Bloodbowl arm today in the mail, good on GW,sent a few extra pieces as well from the sprue, nothing great except a piece of dragon skin cloak.

GCTstudios (Bushido) has shipped my show exclusive Bikou figure , it was showing out of stock but I ordered it anyway and I guess they found me one. I thought this would complete my ninja clan, but it turns out I’m missing one of the other ninjas , sneaky ninjas . I guess I’ll have to place another order to finish it off.

Also ordered some bamboo plants from China for terrain, just waiting on those.

Really just enjoying having started Facebook (because of the Bushido group, Test of Honour group, and Gates of Antares group. Finally broke down and started using the evil social media outlet.




Automatically Appended Next Post:
Took a couple hours of me time this morning while everyone was asleep to work on the arm/tentacles of Demogorgon. Used death world forest green on the scales, death guard green on the long muscles and ushabti bone on the soft underside of the muscles. Green parts got a heavy wash of athonian camoshade while the bone got a heavy wash of agrax earth shade.

Definitely will redo the legs as that green does not fit the rest of this model.

Yeah, I definitely intend to redo the legs, at the time it was the darkest green I had and thought that was the route to go. Since then I bought different greens for the arms, which I will also use for the legs.

Well finished off Dudiko ( not Michael Dudikoff from the American Ninja movies of the 1980’s ) as she has boobs. I can’t figure out how I did the bases on Kerasu and the others , I need to get better at taking notes.

They will all blend fine later when I finish the bases. I ordered bamboo like Gits used on his terrain, so they will all have portable camouflage like they do in Fortnight.

Felt like doing some terrain. Started with some plasticard, a little foamcore, pieces of VCT tile and bamboo cake stand skewers. Wound up with the start of a nice little corner display piece for a board.

After some paint

The brown area will get a thicket of Bamboo once my order arrives from China.

Thanks Dr. H, more will come eventually, just needed something to break a block, and looking at Japanese garden pictures got me focused on a little path. It all fell into place then.

Well I received a little ninja present in the mail today.

Show special Bikou, available only from GCTstudious when they are at shows. I’ve been waiting a while for them to post when they’d be at a show, and when they were it was not up for sale. I emailed them and got a reply saying they put it up because they forgot till I posted. Unfortunately it was out of stock . I ordered anyway just to get on a list (backordered), but I guess they scrounged one up for me. I thought this completed my ninja horde, but I was wrong . There is still one more ninja, Wamu the apprentice, who will be added to my next order eventually. I might grab another Karapan at the same time as you can have multiple and they come with two different heads.

Also grabbed some trees at HobbyLobby today using the 40% off coupon. $8 for 3 trees is reasonable to me. More will be had, maybe even tonight..... .

Well maybe this weekend we will see some progress on the big galute. I always saw him as more orange than green, but never faced him in my years of playing D&D. Thanks

Well I decided to finish up Bikou, which means all my Bushido figs are painted once again , does that mean I have to order more?


My wife goes to a conference every year and it’s sunday through Tuesday next week. Means I have kid duty and “Have to take the days off” so hopefully I can plow through with Demogorgon this long weekend and maybe find my next project.

So possible future projects.
1. Still waiting on my Blackwater gulch Kickstarter stuff, production company is a one man operation and he’s been sick, so it’s running late.
2. Have had a recent itch to do a contemporary/near apocalypse timeline bit. No idea on rules or models, just vague stuff. I may have to just start planning stuff out.
3. Get back into doing some Gaslands stuff. Graven has been knocking out some wonderful stuff lately and it’s gotten me hyped, but it’s such a small scale game I might just do odd bits here and there.
4. I’ve been using Facebook.....don’t judge me , I’m judging myself harsh enough for doing it. But it’s rekindled some of my desires for Beyond the Gates of Antares. So I might jump back into messing about with that again.

Suggestions always welcome.

Not sure if I’d make up my own apocalyptic game, just a near future catastrophe setting for minis and modeling. I’m almost tempted to try using a really old RPG system “The Morrow Project” as a basis for the game. Maybe write my own module and build the town to eventually run an RPG if I ever can get back to doing that.

In the mean time I have been quiet due to work, wife being out of town and a bad stomach virus. I just felt capable of going down to my painting area today after three days of staying close to a bathroom. So leg day it was.


I have done the color split in the legs similar to the upper body, but the lower body had that dark green coat on it while the upper had white primer. I think it will actually help out in the end, just not be exactly the same.

Yeah I don’t want to rush this beast. In fact the back of the legs hasn’t gotten a wash yet. I wanted the paint to thoroughly dry there before I hit it.

Well like I said, Nurgle was reading my posts and decided to hit me again for good measure. My wife is at a conference, so I called her mom who was a nurse for 40 years at the hospital I currently work at. She came right over (she’s really a great mother in law, if not crazy like a loon ). So far the medicine and Gatorade are helping as my electrolytes must really be out of whack.

My next question to you all is this. I’m looking for cheap (I mean it’s me guys) feudal Japanese coins to use as Ki tokens for Bushido. I’d like them to have some weight (preferably metal) with texture or kanji of some type on them. While thinking about it I remembered I have a copy of Samurai Swords board game (formerly Shogun and currently Ikusa) which has 33 koku, but they are red plastic. They can be seen in this picture


But I’ve also seen these in store. They are 50 metal coins from the game Tokaido, lowest I’ve seen is $14, it just doesn’t look worn enough to me.


There’s also Chinese luck coins out there, which I can’t figure out how to bring photos from amazon over as my brain is not functioning at 100%.
These are probably the best looking to my eyes, but I just don’t want people to complain that it’s chinese and not pseudo Japanese . I know the game draws from a lot of different cultures, so I’m not too worried, just wondering if you all know any other alternatives. I really like the center hole in the coins for what I’m going with. Any help will be appreciated.

Japanese 5-yen coins are copper (but lighter in color than US pennies), have a hole in the middle, and are the only modern Japanese coin with no roman numerals. Given the current exchange rate, they're worth about 4 cents each. That might be your cheapest alternative, assuming you can locate a source.

On the leg colour, I think Demagorgon is supposed to be a mish mash of different beasts, I think it is part of his nature. All the artwork I have seen gives him these bluish green legs and more vivid green tentacles. I really like the job you have done on him, when I get around to painting my much smaller Reaper version I hope I can do as good a job.

Great work on the ninja as well. I am terrified to get into japanese minis because if I do, I will end up going crazy with all the great options out there, so this blog is dangerous for me to look at

Those look great, but I just spent two hours calling local money exchange places and coin shops seeing if any would carry them or get them with no luck.


The I-Ching coins are ones I have looked into, different sizes and quantities, but definitely the right direction.

That’s too bad as I think you would out do me with the obsessive building and painting. Demogorgon is definitely a mixed up chicken-lizard-monkey-bird-squid thing.

I haven’t pulled the trigger yet, but I think I’ll go with the luck coins, now I just have to decide on 50,100 or 200 pieces. I was told that I’d probably only need 30 max to play Bushido, but most likely I’d have to provide both sides so the 50 could be tight if both sides were high Ki using armies (very doubtful). So it would be enough, but I’d go 100 more likely just to give some away to opponents as presents for playing the game with me. They also could be used with the kids as we are now playing more card games (gin, poker, spades) as they are getting older and need to learn these skills before going out into the world.

Thanks for the offer, but I think I’m going to paint up these Shogun coins first, and will probably just order some of the chinese luck coins in the end.

Anyway, a package arrived for me today from China...no coins, just bamboo sans panda bear .

Now to use it in terrain .

Darn straight, just not sure where I’d put it if they sent me one .

Another terrain piece in the works last night. Centerpiece is an aquarium temple I got for a few bucks. Scale looks nice as just a small gazebo sort of thing.

Might get a small statue or shrub.

On yet another note, Runerunners Board Game looks like it will be going on Kickstarter in a couple weeks. I think this will fit nicely with my desire for a “next project”, looking like 11 figs and a game for $50. Plus it’s by the same guy (Necros) from here on DD.

Not much of an update, but the crushed limestone paths are done. Temple dog is not glued down yet (if it even will be part of this). I’ll probably add some small shrubs, rocks and aquarium plants to the corners. Not sure if I’ll repaint the reds on here to match my orange Torii Gates or keep it this red color (sloppy manufacturing paint job).


Work tonight, having a family Bday party for all three kids tomorrow at my moms house with both sides of our family all showing up. It’s my oldest sweet 16 party. I’m just relieved she has no desire right now to learn how to drive, I don’t think she is anywhere near responsible enough yet. Busy week end, but I’m on my way to pick up a few items from Miniaturemarket, so there will eventually be an update .

So this weekend was a bust for gaming/modeling, but at least the kids had a good Bday party. Bunches of teenagers over to our house overnight and masses of pizza devoured. All in all a great week end, the weather was gorgeous until last night when a quick storm blew through, but no worries here.

I did swing by Miniaturemarket and picked up an order of Micro Art Studio bases. They have all the sets on clearance for $4 each (either 10 pack of 30mm bases with inserts or a pack which has 6 40mm bases and 1 50mm base). I grabbed 60 30mm bases, 18 40mm bases and 3 50mm bases for $36 along with some formed pvc sheets. The bases will most likely be used on my Temple of Ro-Kan Bushido guys, I only have 8 guys currently, but counting up what they can have with the Kami and the like this order will cover them if I ever complete the range.


Test pieces. The orange is leaving, I’ll redo them in a really light grey/white. I just thought I’d try painting the statue like they put a robe over it , obviously it didn’t turn out great. There has to be some suspension of reality as the bases do have the fluer des lyes embossed into them . The inserts for the 40mm bases measure out at 31mm ish, so I could see them used for space marines or any 40k army really.


With the weather being good I decided to prime the lot of them and a few other bits.

Well, off to painting

Well the first goal I saw to get a 2’ x 2’ table for Bushido set up with these. After that I need to get it to 3’ x3’ for Test of Honour especially with ToH v2.0 coming out.

Gomez wrote:Loving the terrain features as well. Very evocative!

Thanks Gomez, not as cool as your arena, but I’ll take my Far East setting. Though I keep seeing your work and keep going to the Arenarex page.....argh. One day you’ll get me .

Finished up one of the larger base sets (6 40s and a 50mm).



I think it can still work for Asian basing, though my old neglected marines are crying for some attention.
Now just to do 70+ more of these .

Progress is progress wether there’s a little or a lot

Really busy days lately and my oldest turned 16 today, so more family time than craft time.

Back to watching YouTube videos for some craft projects to hopefully stir some imagination.

Edit: okay, so being the scrounger that I am I couldn’t just throw away a box of old cassette tapes from the church without coming up with something to do with them.

So I’ve disassembled 9 of them so far and have a little collection of bits going. First off the shells are nice 4” x 2.5” x .5” standard plastic pieces which I could see easily becoming wall sections for a sci-fi game. The guts on the other hand will make nice gubbins, especially the centers for the tape as they look like they can be used as cog like devices or around tubes as joins. The real gold I found were on the two small tracking wheels I took out of each tape. You can see one in front of the box I’ve put the pieces into, the details not really there in the photo, but they look like hubs from matchbox cars, so I think they will make nice added armor pieces, or maybe I can make some small walls out of them. I can’t figure out where I put my Gaslands stuff right now or I’d give a scale shot.

Anyway, I have dozens of these cassettes to chop up for bits so I’d better get on with it.

Looking good, man. I've never had the patience for painting a group of bases all at once (let alone trying to get a whole army finished) so it's cool to see how unified you've made them. I'm sure that'll really stand out on the table.

And isn't it crazy how quickly those babies turn into (nearly) grown ups? My oldest is graduating high school in six weeks () and I swear it seems like just last week I was rocking him to sleep. I don't know how many kiddos you have, but make sure you enjoy every minute.

Sidenote: do you game/hobby with your kids at all? My little guy (10) loves playing pretty much anything I've got but couldn't sit still long enough to even think about caring about painting/modelling, while my oldest mostly just sticks with Magic/D&D/video games, so it feels like I'm missing out just a bit.

Thanks Gomez, I know I need to crank these out before I get too far or I won’t be able to reproduce them later. Even with notes I’d muck it up somehow.

My kids have no interest in my gaming stuff. The girls don’t care at all and my son only cares about fortnight. They did play Zombicide with me for a while, but even that died out quick. Tried Gaslands too, but no desire on their part to continue.

Speaking of Gaslands, I was editing my last post when you commented, so here’s a better picture of the wheel hubs I found/scavenged.

Still, a good use for them. Better than lissssstening to them. Ah that hisss they made. VHS cassettes also have interesting bits in them, if you ever get a hold of any of those.

So my local Wegman's had a bunch of hot wheels in a clearance bin. I managed to restrain myself...mostly because my grocery cart was already full. I don't know what I'll do next time I'm in the store. Maybe curse certain Dakka members?

That temple is a nice little find. Doesn't the red color have some sort of meaning? Seems I see a lot of those sorts of buildings in that red.

Oh I have old VHS tapes in storage. Who needs to rewatch ones wedding after all.....

Most of the Torii Gates and temple buildings I’ve seen are in a red or an orange color. I’m not in the know as to why, but I guess it’s got some meaning. To me I figure it’s probably linked to the sun (red sun on a white field for the flag, but probably just talking out my butt again.

All the bases will be mine...eventually. Batch two completed.

If you were a true Elvis worshipper you’d go through the trouble . Digitizing these tapes . No they are old church tapes from 40+ year old puppet shows and sermons. Plus many were duplicates of duplicates. These bases are actually really great as they are inserts that are appropriately sized for older 40k. So they are square edged that pop into the Round lips.

Wow , I’ve been lazy....... Seriously, I haven’t been down to my desk in a while, but with Holy Week over and less projects at church maybe I’ll get some time this week.

I cleaned out the garage (Dumpster East) on Saturday. 4 hours of digging, tossing, cussing and kicking later it’s almost manageable in there. We have an old house (80+ years old) which has a single car garage which is really too tiny to be functional for car storage (really narrow) and it has no access into the house, so it holds the bikes, big power tools, lawn mower and other debris. We have been in the house for 8 years now and some boxes have not been gone through in that time. One of which was a 18gallon tote which had 40+ of these in it that I got for a penny each.

They are the color additives for ceramic tile grout. It’s part of an epoxy kit which this isn’t just the colorant and the two part epoxy was sold separately. When I worked at Lowe’s we cut out a whole bunch of colors and when they dropped down to nothing in price I bought them thinking eventually I might use them for some sort of weathering powder. Now I’m thinking of using them with some glue as just colored base texture. It’s really fine powder and I have 8 colors to try out.

More later, mad experimenting to do now .

Thanks Graven, it’s a benefit to being a hoarder .

I’ve been drawing a blank on Bushido stuff lately, and while checking Facebook (yeah, Gits got me hooked there with Bushido ) I joined a Gates of Antares group. Seeing some nice Antares stuff painted up and looking at terrain bits spurred on some building this morning.

Couple of Dr. Seuss inspired xenos trees providing shade for a Concord trooper while he checks the ammo reserve.

Small scatter pieces to get the juices flowing a little. Trying to use some of the colored powder in my previous post instead of the Reikland Fleshshade as the powder is cheaper by far. I think it looks....okay.....but more experimenting is required to achieve a similar goal.

Had to do a Walmart run, couldn’t walk away from some Gaslands cars when I saw them.


Gru and Batman. The real question is do I put Gru on a prison team or the crazy gadget team? I could always paint him army green and go Rutherford .

The silliness of using the Grumobile in a wargame is highly tempting. I could buy one and put it on the "someday" pile next to the Hulk Ragnarok bus. I await your progress for further inspiration.

Well not much progress, just a basecoating for the GRU-01 “pillbug” Rutherford tank.

You should play , but you should sell those and make some $$$ to buy all the things.

Please do , Grumobile just screams the sort of 50s nostalgia that is a thing the base for Gaslands. After all I think that is where the historical timeline began to splinter off, the moon race and mars colonies being the real prize in the Gaslands universe.

I’ll have to look for the minion vehicles next time , but this was screaming Rutherford to me, hence the army green.

Just a quick green paint job. Details, weathering and maybe a big R to replace the G later. I added a small wooden dowel to be the 125mm cannon on the front and I’m currently thinking what to do for my other build slot. I’m counting it as a tank, so right now he is sitting at 46 cans cost. The 20 hull points should help him out while he whittles down the opponents with the main gun. He is not in the race to place 1st, just to make sure his team is the only ones moving . He will probably get escorted by a couple jeeps or a muscle car to take the flags.

Sorry for the silence guys, just not getting to much done lately. Though there was some small progress. I’ve been doing a little scatter terrain, most of this has been done for a couple days.


A few scatter pieces, trying new basing with the tile grout coloring, not liking the outcome, but will try some more because it will be much cheaper than the way I was doing it. The little garden square is inspired by the episode of Star Trek next generation where Wesley crashes into a garden on a ‘civilized ‘ planet and they try to execute him.


Built and base coated an atmospheric condenser.

Parts that were used: IV tray, IV stops and some paper towel rollers from a dispenser. All reclaimed from my work, also note that I had permission and these were sterile, not used .

Well GW has been whispering in my ear for a long while and I broke down again. I wanted to buy Looncurse and build a Sylvaneth army, but they drastically under produced yet again, distributors only getting single digit copies . Anyway my local shop had a customer appreciation day today, they normally do no discount, but they did 15% storewide, so I finally bought into Warhammer Underworlds:Nightvault and got the Skaven expansion to bolster my skaven Bloodbowl team in the picture. 20+ years ago I started Warhammer fantasy with a skaven army. There was a wine and cheese shop next to the game and comic book store I frequented (and later worked at) and so I went over and got names of cheeses for each skaven, along with Monty Python cheese shop sketch names . Hopefully this doesn’t continue to grow.....who am I kidding .


Never mind them Zombicide Orc/ogre/troll things in the background.

Thanks for bringing up some childhood Trek terrors, Theo! I really think You are too harsh on Yourself - things look right and proper. Everything can be improved, sure, but this terrain looks on par with Your other efforts. And cheaper is a good bonus too.

Crumbled blue was always killing his way through opponents (gutterrunner/assassin). The fromage was another name that comes to mind, but I think that was a unit of clan rats .

So new direction n a whim, must be my thread .

I picked up Warhammer Underworlds: NightVault on Saturday at the FLGS customer appreciation day. The store had people playing it while I was there, so it really helped sell the deal, though I had been eyeing it for months and had every intent to buy it before I walked in. Today I picked up a copy of Warhammer Underworlds:ShadeSpire, which is the first season of the game and I still out of production, but the collector in me wanted it even though NightVault has more guts to it and season one is not “NEEDED”. Saturday I also grabbed the Spiteclaw’s Swarm team box (skaven) as they just look great and I have a skaven BloodBowl team assembled and awaiting paint.

Anyway, the last few weeks I’ve had a chance to look over some models and was considering getting back into AOS (never in AOS before, but Warhammer anyway), and the Stormcast were really catching my attention for some reason. No idea what spurred it on, but a lucky windfall hit me so the pieces fell into place, and now I’m gearing up with The Specialist games while building them towards an eventual AOS army (years away).

I assembled the NightVault teams this weekend and the Skaven swarm as well as a free Stormcast guy I got with a magazine purchase. I know GW has been putting out some great models lately, but these are absolutely fantastic kits. Even though they are pushfit, they are not like the 2nd edition Warhammer 40K space marine static pose guys. They are extremely detailed and have great action in their poses. The undead team that comes with NightVault, Thorns of the Briar Queen, are much better than I had anticipated and have a great flow to them. They all got primed this morning and I’m starting with the freebie guy as a test subject for my color scheme.

So far just the first layer of Leadbelcher on the armor panels, I have two color thoughts in my head for the chamber. The first idea is a Red and white color scheme which I thought would be different as I’m seeing lots of blues and greens around. Red and white are also the colors of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team which is my hometown and should be pretty striking with the silver armor. I’m a little nervous about painting white though as it can be tricky and tedious as hell. The second idea I had is to do the cloth in yellow and black, also striking and very reminiscent of my 40K love of the Iron Warriors. I think it would also look great with the silver armor, but I’ve painted so much yellow over the last few years I’m frankly bored of it.

Wish me luck, as I’m going to actually TRY and improve my painting skills with these models, and also try and get back into a gaming group with the Shadespire group at the FLGS.

Thanks for checking in .

Highly intriguing. I look forward to seeing where this road will lead you. I vote for red/white. Real world callouts are fun, and it will give them a cool classic templar look.

Thanks Youashock , I decided to do the red/white, though I’m not really feeling it so far, but I was getting the knight hospitallier vibe from it.

Little progress as I’m getting ready for work.

Just base colors right now. As I said, I’m not totally feeling the Red and white scheme, but I’m going to press on as I’m still at a really early stage here.

So ideas for my “Army” are in development. One of the first ideas I had was reflecting back on the movie the Matrix. I can’t recall if it was that movie or another sci-fi flick where the director completely filmed while avoiding the color blue. Not sure if it was for a screen backdrop (green screening/ or bluescreening in This case)or just a personal choice, but I was going to intentionally skip a color on the army. I was originally going to skip blue as well, but now I’m thinking of skipping green as I’m thinking of using a glowing light powder blue for runes, magic and spell effects. The powder blue is also a throwback uniform color for the St. Louis Cardinals. Staying away from green might be hard as basing usually has plants on it, so maybe just removing the green from any part of the model and only on the basing would work. This could also make them look slightly less “Natural” which is a good thing in my opinion.

I’ll kill around some other ideas. Let me know your guys thoughts on the green ban, or other ideas you might have along whole army lines.

I can see the attraction with Shadespire. Some of the smaller, 3-5 model warbands, are a great introduction into AOS. Like the Cardinals look for your Stormcast as well.

I think what’s really drawing me is the game lengths. 3 turns plays in about 30-45minutes.

So not much progress as white takes so long , hopefully the new contrast paints work like they say as that apothecary white looks amazing.

First Shadespire figure is taking shape.

Still a long way to go on him, but I’m pleased with his and the other stormcast guys faces. I’m trying to hold back on the amount of washes I’m throwing around, I’ve just been dowsing models lately and I need to start being more conservative.

One thing that bothers me about these models is all the details that don’t get painted. I mean the armor panels are all reliefs, like the gladiator in the movie Gladiator who has the silver face mask.

With the fancier breastplates, you could always drybrush them lightly with a brass or similar? Or simply a lighter silver to make them pop?

@Gwyn, here’s a better, more recent photo, under the light. Hopefully it shows off the armor details some more. Still plenty of work to do on these guys, but enough for a casual game if I get the chance today


Also started on my Skaven. This is the model that has inspired me to even get into the game. Skritch Spiteclaw, leader of his swarm. I decided to do a different color scheme than the box art. This is just the basecoat and a wash, still far to go with this.


Edit: Well 2 hours of painting done and all 5 bases for the warband are in good shape, everyone has their basic skin tone and the lurking skaven is done up to a basecoat and a wash all over.


Lots of fun painting these guys up. On the lurking skaven she base there is a small rat burrowing up between the stones. I thought it was only a dislodged brick and dirt, but it adds so much to the base.

Thanks aka-chan

Edit: Krrk the Almost-trusted joins the warband. Seriously, that’s the figures name . He’s second in command to Skritch Spiteclaw who is my warband General, which I gues makes him Captain Krrk , so I gave him a red shirt keeping with the theme . He also has two small rats on his shoulder, because Skaven


Just two more to go, the hungering skaven and the festering skaven. Hoping to get them done today .

Edit2: well the festering skaven didn’t take long. These are still just base coats and washes, but good enough for tabletop in my opinion.


Edit3: enter the hungering, last of Skritch Spiteclaws swarm.


Had lots of fun speed painting these guys to a tabletop level. More details will get added later.

Thanks Syro_,I am pleased with the basecoat so far, now to get a game or two in with them.

No pics , lack of sleep may have gotten me productive in assembling three more teams for Warhammer Underworlds, but it made me forget to take pictures. Besides who wants to see naked fire dwarves really? Hopefully will prime these guys today or tomorrow and get to painting them soon.

Edit: forgot to take pics of newly assembled, but really I’m not sure that’s necessary unless someone wants to see all the plastic colors GW can do now. I did a couple more hours of painting on the Skaven, I’m really happy with how they are looking right now.

Down shot of the bases to see the little rats going for a swim in the green nasty water and the brown skaven chocolates left on the stones.

Not showing up for some reason , but the runes on the helmet crest glow green.

Bases labeled for ease of tracking.

Not really excited about him, but still very WIP with lots of layers to go. The first layer of his old GW dark flesh came out red, I guess I didn’t shake it enough, so this I saw the second coat applied and starting to get there.

Thanks LTM, I’m really enjoying the small bands which let me get a taste of something different while still accomplishing a whole faction.

Garrek Gorebeard joins the Frey.

While not done-done, he is done. Still needs basing and maybe a couple touches here and there I’m overall satisfied.

On to Karsus the chained who seams to be the mob killer in the group. His axe on the chain lets him attack two hexes away and he gets lots of dice in his attempt. After him will be Arnulf with his shoulder spikes.

Thanks for stopping in guys

Thanks CB, GW is really knocking out some great models with the Warhammer Underworlds gangs, I think the Skaven are easily the best.

Not much time today even with the holiday here, but I did get Karsus the Chained done, sans base.

Hopefully Wednesday I’ll get Arnulf completed, might do a little on him yet tonight.

Thanks DR. H, they are friendly little chaps who like to cut to the heart of any situation, it’s how they get a head in life .

Arnulf is done, though I’m tempted by his helmet to paint Magneto’s M on it


So except for the bases these boys are done, feels wrong to not put Blood for the Blood God on the models though, so maybe a little more work down the line.

I have three more Warbands primed and ready. Fjul’s Chosen Axes, Thorns of the Briar Queen and the othe Stormcast squad from the Shadespire set.

I think naked Dwarf guys are next up.

Oh, and I have Magore’s Fiends on order already, should arrive Friday, unfortunately I’ll be at work when it gets to the FLGS. I need to pick up a couple paints to do the Briar Queen and her crew, but also looking at what the next warband purchase should be. If anyone has suggestions I’m all ears.

Paint M for Murder .

Well, about to leave for work today, will stop by the FLGS in hopes they’d got my figs in and possibly some paints as well. I did get a start on my hairy naked Dwarf babies.

Painting their tiny loincloths has me thinking of buying some static grass and applying it under the loincloths for added humor. It would be a sure thing if I could find some orange tufts . There’s some questionable sculpting under there .

They are Slayers.....Fyre Slayers to be more precise , the warband was in charge of protecting the city of Shadespire long ago and failed, so now they are back trying to avenge the city and break the curse. Thanks , in the mean time they also decided to be nudists.

Briancj wrote:Gale Force 9 sells a container of 'autumn clump foliage' that has all the reds, yellows, and oranges you'll need.

I thought about it, but I was hoping to find some gratis grass that was orange, but maybe brown will work .

I actually went to the FLGS to try and get a game in, sign saying Demos every Saturday 11-2......this Saturday they all went to play Kill Team at the GW store instead. As I was walking out the door a guy named Dan came in and was looking for a game, so we both lucked out. My deck was not optimized a small I have never even looked at the cards, only put them in sleeves, so I got crushed by naked dwarves against my Skaven.

Dans an excellent painter, says he’s more a painter than gamer, but he dished me out on both accounts today. Good fun none the less.

Your too kind, not false modesty, but I don’t think the camera picks up all the differences. I do think that he uses other paints though, probably the P3 line as the colors just look more...vibrant i guess is as good as I can come up with.

ListenToMeWarriors wrote:Agree with YWS, the armies look pretty on par to me. And in what kind of World does a rat wear more clothes and armour than a Dwarf? Strange times.

It’s a world that has been blown up and turned into the bubble-verse . We are modest rats and they are Flameboyant dwarves.

Little bit of progress on the dwarves, almost all basecoats are done minus the weapons and bases. Tried the new to me Retributor armor gold , that’s some shiny yellow gold there. It really pops against the Dwarf skin.

I also got some of The Nighthaunt gloom blue paint to try out on my Briar Queen gang. Not sure if I’ve decided to move them up the cue or not as I primed Magore’s Fiends last night, though it rained suddenly and before I could grab them and bring them inside. Hope the rain didn’t affect the primer, I put them next to the dehumidifier to help them dry last night.

Thanks for the heads up , now I wish I had also picked up that hexwraith color .

Da Boss wrote:Your dorfs and rats look really good in play. I have to give this shadespire malarky a go one of these days.

Shadespire is a great affordable game. $60 for the core set which will give you plenty of play as you get lots of cards to use, but each $30 warband gives you more models, variety and around 50+ cards to add into the core set. Plus it looks like they actually are doing a great job with having tournaments and stuff.

Well got the base colors down on the Dwarf axes and glazed their beards with the last of my Lamenters yellow (which is going away apparently )


Still lot so if tidying up on the weapons to do, but definitely happy with the progress.

Started the reds on Magore’s Fiends, was going to try something different with the hellhound, but he will most likely get redone as im not liking how he is going so far this morning.


Edit: couple hours of painting this morning.

The trims are painted in Balthazar Gold for later brass work.

Morework on doggie and other angle on The Fiends.

And my gift for keeping stuff out of the landfill, four old office paper shelves turned into a model shelf. There were more black ones, but I knew the clear would be useful for letting light through.

Not much painting time lately, but what time I have had has been taken by the big guy himself, Magore Redhand.



Im liking how the jawbone axe and cape turned out. My brass paint has been dried/clumped up for a long while, so the gold will eventually get toned down.brown boots are just a quick coat, long way to go with him still, but Khorne demands paint .

The axe is a bad case of gingervitous left unchecked , it might get some blood for the blood god around it’s teeth later, but I’m really Leary about doing any more to it.

Super quick paint jobs on the Thorns of the Briar Queen warband. 2 hours from prime coat to this, really just need the basing done.

The queen and a few friends

And the others in the group.


All the “organics” are pale green, except for the skulls of the reincarnated, which has a green glaze over it, same as the candle holder guy’s flame. All “inorganic” material such as weapons, chains, helmets are all blue, doesn’t mean they are less real, just less have no inner voice to them.

You smashed it on the Briar Queen gang, great work. Is the main colour Nighthaunt gloom or Nikilalakakakakak Oxide? Either way it looks great. The only thing I would be tempted to do is maybe add some colour to the roses just to differentiate her as the leader and add a final bit of pop to her, can see why you may not want to do that though. That said a red or violet rose colour could look pretty cool.

The skin is Niknakpaddywhack oxide, the non-organic items (swords and stuff) are the Nighthaunt gloom. The roses have Nighthaunt gloom then glazed with guilliman blue and then Nuln oil. They are black roses on a more green vine (Waywatcher glazed) her base size is also larger than the rest of the gang, which helps set her apart from the rest. I might give her red gems on her tiara and her shawl though.

Thanks , but I think it does need another layer, so I’m going to keep practicing on other models to see what else to do. I might have to sneak in another deeper tone on them, and I really want to bring out the queens headpiece more, at least differentiate it from her robes.

Funny you should mention banshees. The next Warhammer Underworlds set that comes out is more stormcasts versus Banshees. The models are ones from the Storm Strike set which I have been considering picking up as it has the basic AOS rules. The new set, Dreadfane, will be another US and Germany only release and only through bookstores .

It is the GW LOTR army scheme that Duncan showed off, just done on Nighthaunt models , so you could go to Warhammer world and see that in a case .

You might take a couple months, but they will blow mine away, just as your purple clad skaven inspired me to finally buy into the game.

Don’t think I can get another highlight as I believe Praxeti white is my highest color, but I have been considering putting in another deeper color in a few spots to give even more depth. Hopefully I don’t botch it up.

Wow, lots of replies there, sorry for the delay in responding, busy past few days.

I’ve got a couple hours of free time this morning before a phone interview so I might do a little more work on some models. I got into one of those painting spots where I’m just stuck on a model and don’t know where to go and the other models on the bench are not being helpful . So I grabbed one of the stormcast models and added a bit of bling to him to see if I can break the block I’ve hit.

I like the added detail, but I think the white needs to go. I’m thinking cream to replace it, but looking at my paints I didn’t see anything that really fit the bill. Perhaps I just need to finish off the red before moving ahead with changing any of the rest of the model.

Also with your current stormcast guy, I think the white works, I personally would be tempted to change the red though. Go a brighter red or even an orange.

Thanks Snrub, been kicking some ideas around with the stormcast guys, todays shopping trip might have changed the plans though.

The test guy I redid the robes with Ulthan grey, didn’t really notice a difference, but we will see something shortly I believe.

So, a couple things.

Went out and bought the Stormstrike box set, intro to AOS, has some stormcasts which will eventually get cards for Shadespire and some ghostly figs which also are getting Shadespire rules. I just couldn’t wait to grab them. Plus has a mini rulebook for AOS, which isn’t starting to tempt me .

My Saint Louis Blues Hockey team won the Stanley Cup , the 52 year curse is broken . Which if the red and white I’ve been painting doesn’t straighten itself out soon all these guys will get repainted in the Blues team colors.

I felt the Briar Queen needed more colors, but wanted to stay monochromatic, so they all got some Coelia Greenshade washes on their hoods.

I think they look good, now to sort the bases, probably just going with a black shadowy midnight colored base.

This morning I changed my mind and decided to try and grab some of the Contrast paints. I was going to wait a bit, but as luck would have it I got the last of the Apothecary White and second to last if the blood Angel Red. The White was the only one I was going for, but I saw how the red looked over silver and leadbelcher so I snagged it too.

Im going to slop it on some white primed B-Sieged figs that have been sitting around. Just to test them out, if it looks good then those might be the colors for my Shadespire stormcast guys.

My initial thought on contrast paints were...bad.

But, now, I have TWO feelings:

1) ANYthing that brings new people into the hobby (any game system, just painting minis) and lows the bar to entry for painted figs? AWESOME.

2) More ammo to throw at gate-keepers who poo-pooh'd 'dipped' figures...like these. It's CANON/OFFICIAL now, you bastards!

I look forward to your experiments, ESPECIALLY what you plan on doing with the white!

Thanks Briancj,

Well experiment with the contrast on the B-Sieged models. I used regular primer, Walmart rustoleum white that is as the base as I’m not shelling out $20 or whatever GW is demanding.

Single coat on each shield, the rest of the models have the primer showing still.
You can see some slight pooling that I missed, but otherwise nice vibrant red and the white is almost like ulthuan grey , a quick drybrush highlight of white and I think it will look great.

While those were drying I decided to put the base layer on my nighthaunts from the Stormstrike box set.

Such spooky ghosts .

I might have to break out some marines to paint

Well to give you more of an example see below. I do like the vibrant color of the red too.

So I drybrushed quickly this morning both the shields. The red got astorath red dry and the apothecary white got a dusting of Praxeti white. I think I’m really pleased with the outcomes.



Working on my Banshees and glaivewraiths right now.

Happy Father’s Day to all you lot that fit the bill .

Edit:
Glaivewraiths

Banshees

Tried out doing the whole of the bases with Nighthaunt Gloom to give a spooky feeling.

No problem, the pics from actual people (not Uber painters trying to break the paints down) are showing up in the contrast thread and there’s are plenty of great results so far. These photos I’m doing are great for me to see the actual steps later on because I’ll eventually forget what I did and do it another way .

Well apothecary white robes applied to white rustoleum primer.hard to see the shades of white, but here goes.


Also did a shield in the Iyanden yellow and a shield with the blood angels red over leadbelcher. I have three shields drying with stormhost silver to try the contrasts over that.

That picture almost makes the red look like brass, but a closer look next to brass scorpion and Khorne red show the difference.



Automatically Appended Next Post:
Edit: did the colors over stormhost silver. Apothecary white, iyanden yellow and Blood Angel Red.


Started work on a sigmarine. More work done since this picture.

Just a edge highlight in an orange over the red robes maybe.
But looks fantastic to me, very interesting about the paints. I am looking to paint a fair bit this year, might just have to look into them a bit more. I paint by a long winded method, and it is quite daunting to think of painting armies like it, but if I can do it with these to a decent standard, will be great. Personally I am a fan of GW paints, I know they are maybe expensive, but it is all relative, I love Angrax and Seraphin Sepia, etc. I have never come across anything that can touch them. So yeah I am a GW fan, and wont apologise for it, they are brilliant.

I paint by a long winded method, and it is quite daunting to think of painting armies like it, but if I can do it with these to a decent standard, will be great. Personally I am a fan of GW paints, I know they are maybe expensive, but it is all relative, I love Angrax and Seraphin Sepia, etc. I have never come across anything that can touch them. So yeah I am a GW fan, and wont apologise for it, they are brilliant.

I’ve used GW paints for a very long time and I feel how you do as well. Then again, I also paints straight from the pot . I think bulk armies like Orks, nids and guard will have such a boon from these paints. Definitely worth the price in my book.

I forgot to highlight the red, I drybrushed the white, but not the red . Good call.

Thanks Dr. H, I just follow in the experimenting footsteps of my brothers here.

Little time to paint today, but the third of the trio is almost completed to the same level.


I wanted to show some sort of energy in the mauls these guys carry, so the texture in the head was given a coating of the Iyaden yellow on top of stormhost silver. I also put the yellow into the eye sockets.

I think it works, let me know what you all think.

I think that Storm cast scheme is looking great, it really pops. I think the ideal Contrast paint for energy weapons and the like may be Talassar blue but he yellow fits in well with the lightning based background of the Stormcast.

When finished this warband will look amazing.

I like your unique color scheme! They look more like fighting monks than weird moving statues like the all gold ends up looking.

For the weapons, maybe do a very thin line of a darker wash (orange or sepia) around the edges of the lighted area. I find it makes the center look lighter and defines the edges well. If there is a break between the light and the glowing area it makes it more realistic than just a see less area of yellow. Just my $0.02.

I really like the contrast paints over the metallic, that works really well! Would look great with an edge highlight of Stormhost too, to really bring out the metallicness of it.

Those guys are looking cool. The girl with the maul over her shoulder is such a great model. I like the yellow energy idea, but agree it could use a little more pop. Either darker around the edges or brighter in the middle and you should be there.

The use of yellow, as opposed to the usual blue-white, is grand. I, too, would add some contrast, ither a lighter yellow inthe centre, or a darker yellow on the edges.

Also, up to this point, I thought the face/helmets were pretty bland. But with the yellow in the eye sockets, it looks great!

I kind of wanted to steer clear of the blue color for energy as that’s so normal, I think the yellow do fit well though.

I really like that model in particular, I goofed up when I assembled her as she comes with an unhelmeted option that I wanted to do , but I didn’t pay attention so that version will happen later when these are released as a Shadespire team.

Their eyes really do need something to make them pop. Most times I see black or blue, but the yellow has given them energy/life.


So third one I should up to the same detail level as the other two, so extra highlights will soon be added.


Also some close ups of the mauls to show off the yellow color, hopefully it shows the contrast a little better.



I might add another coat of the contrast which will show off more variation.

It’s a red, but if the pics are coming across orange I’m good with that too . Thanks

Thanks, I didn’t want to do gold, so I modified the blue gold scheme to the red silver. I might mess about with a bronze green theme just for giggles to see if that works.

So with the trio to a level I’m happy with, sans bases, it’s off to the next group from the storm strike box set. I think they are called castigators, which is weird as they have crossbows and not whips/scourges/ cat of nine tails .


Cloth done in the apothecary white, but I think I’ll redo the back cloaks to the blood angels red to bring them more in line with the Sequestors.

Also started the Gryph hound who is looking like a rooster right now . My family (uncles) did raise bird dogs for competition when I was young and bloodhounds too, but these bird dogs are a “whole ‘nother animule” as they might say.


Im thinking of adding stripes to his back in an outlandish color as that seems the norm for all the Gryph hounds I’ve seen painted. Then again most of the other painted ones have an absolutely different colored head compared to the body, kind of like parakeets and some other ornamental bird species. I guess it’s time for silly research into bird colors, which defeats my original plan of making these look like the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team colors .

Edit: okay, so quick research and paint splatter, couldn’t decide between a few styles....so, did them all



Remember these are about a 6” distance photo, they look great at 3’, which isn’t about the mark I shoot for, if not the 20’ mark.

I really like your work on the Gryph Hound, I remember the pains I went to painting the Eltharion On Stormwing model about 20 odd years ago. Painting patterns from nature is no easy task at all, and you have done it really well. The additional work on your mauls has paid off as well.

I suppose you could say he's the cock of the walk. He really looks like some fantastical beast with all the different patterns. The red/white tying him squarely to the rest of the Stormcast is a solid move. Superion was a bunch of jets. Then they get all Voltron-y and make Superion.

Yes, I thought he was a mega dude, but I also got him confused with Jetfire .

Well little work time, but 1castigator is done...I think, I’m not sold on the crossbow though. Thoughts and ideas would be great.

And obligatory group shot

Also all the previous guys (pre contrast) have gone for a swim in some simple green stripper.

I think the crossbow works as it is. The only thing I would want to add would be a darker line along the bottom edge to separate it from his shoulder. Other than that I think he looks good and fits right in with the rest.

Amen, it’s all part of the grey horde I’m trying to thin down anyway, besides I notice when I’m not focused on painting I’m focused on what to buy next , which I don’t need to be doing anyway, so painting the pile is beneficial .

Wirecat wrote:Interesting and informative stuff on these new paint, thank You all!

No problem. They were never meant as miracle paints, but as time savers for beginners, which I really think has happened. The critical video shows I’ve seen are “Pros” trying to do things with the paints that they are not intended to do (one guy was mixing the paint with the grey seer primer to get more contrast ).

Thanks, I really like the white contrast. It simplifies what I tried to do a long time ago with white painting, which I gave up on because it was too tedious.

Anyway, just woke up and knocked out the rest of the Skaven flesh.

Good enough for tabletop . Now onto the next skaven player......not sure which to go with. I need to find a rat ogre for the team that’s not covered in guns or derpy looking Forgeworld model. I know they made one for the Island of Blood set, just have to find one cheap.

Thanks on the warpstone work, it’s mostly how Sir Duncan paints his, I just didn’t have the proper dry paint so substituted another...and now they have discontinued the yellow glaze which I’m just about out of .

The Night Terror could work, but no one stocks Mantic around here and if I make going to order one model, I’ll just order the GW one in case I’d ever play in a tournament. Besides I really like those guys from Island of Blood .

Edit: so an hour and 19 minutes worth of paint and another model down . All basing will be done when the team is painted up.

I got most of stormvermin blocker done Monday/Tuesday but didn’t have time to snap a picture till now.

Not really happy with the golden horns, will probably change those to brass, and need to dirty up the armor with Agrax wash as well.

So many people I know, or are one degree separated from are born on the 5th of July. Current co-workers grandson, former boss (who was my good twin , who coincidentally had twins like my wife and I, who also met her spouse at work like my wife and I, two other people I worked with, someone from our church, and one of my favorite writers and comic book authors John Byrne, and a former Pastor and mentor. Also just looking up the date, P?T. barnum and Huey Lewis share my birthday too. When my kid starts we’re little I had them convinced that the fireworks were for my birthday, a reminder for everyone to go buy me presents . Celebrating depends on when I have to work. My mom dropped off my favorite cake yesterday, but couldn’t stay, and I had to leave for work so the cake will be enjoyed around lunch today before I head in tonight.

inmygravenimage wrote:I really like your oily steel. Also WOO BIRTHDAY!

Thanks, it’s just thinned down leadbelcher with Nuln oil and agrax earthshade. Dirty rats .

So long tiring day yesterday, hospital was quiet which means I can get stuff done, but then I’m exhausted when I get home. Did a lot of thinking of what my next project/ purchase is going to be as my mom gave me some fun money . While contemplating last night I remembered I had a big old Ratbomination from Zombicide that I wasn’t too happy with the painting of, so I started a rework this morning.

Old paint scheme. All my Zombicide zombies had green skin, it just didn’t translate well and I kind of stalled on doing any more detail work.


Start of new paint job, trying to match him closer to the Shadespire guys and Bloodbowl team, though I think the white fur will stay instead of the grey black of all the others. Also no clothes to paint green, so he will definitely stand out.


So still contemplating Bday spending. I have a few favorite ideas:
1. Most likely I’ll just buy a bunch of the Warhammer Underworlds gangs I don’t have, it’ll get me close to where I’m caught up (need the 9 gangs I’m missing and I’ve got enough for 6-7 right now), there’s a few I’m not too worried about, but all come with different cards and I make a completionist .
2. Rebuild the rats, they were my first Warhammer army (started in WHF then 40k a few years later), I’ve always liked the dirty backstabbers . While I will probably never get into AOS, it would be a nice return to building them again....though it’s a Horde army .
3. Grab the AOS starter set Soul Wars, comes with the main rulebook and plenty of more Stormcast and NightHaunt models (Really digging the ghost army look I’ve been able to do), and with the Soul Strike box I bought recently it’s the start of 2 armies. I just see this as a big rabbit hole that I don’t want to afford, and the stormcast models still are more miss than hit for me as a whole range.
4. Worst idea of the bunch is picking up one of the Apocalypse Bundles for 40K, the Primaris set is growing on me as well as the big Tyranid set , must stay away as I’d have to get the core rule book and all and the Nurgle/Primaris started set just doesn’t draw my attention.

Feel free to weigh in guys . Off to paint more while everyone but me sleeps in on my birthday .
Edit: more painting done, Nurgle sort still drying.

That’s my thought too. I can pick up the random Skaven thing here and there over time. 40k isn’t much of a draw either.

Why is your country flag saying Turkey? Are you on holiday? Or are you a prisoner of human trafficking to be sold into painting bondage? Because if it’s the last I have a whole pile that needs painting...and we can make vroom vroom noises as we play gaslands .

Edit: his yellow pustules will definitely need to get washed down a bit, the question isn’t wether to do it with agrax, Reikland, carronburg crimson or athonian camoshade. The camoshade might help draw him more into the greens of the other skaven clothing.

Well if that’s how you like to enjoy your summer , meanwhile I’m enjoying the dank (not really as I have a dehumidifier) darkness of my basement to avoid the heat and getting in some painting time here and there.

Speaking of painting time, I got a tiny bit in yesterday before work, so I did more work on my big nasty dirty rat. Bone spikes, claws, teeth are done and pustules are now 100% dirtier too.



GW just showed off Dreadfane which is a direct to bookstore game based on Warhammer Underworlds. I bought the Storm Strike set as it contained these figures, but I’ll grab this when it hits the stores (US +Germany only from what I heard ) for the cards and boards and stuff. I’m sure they will sell the gangs separately again like they have done for the season one Shadespire starter set gangs.

Having a real hard time justifying buying the rest of the gangs, I have a chunk of money from BDay to spend and I could get most out of the way, but the Skaven and now Wrath of Kings stuff on clearance are both gnawing on me for attention.

Does anyone have a WoK hate forged Titan that could give me some measurements? Thinking of subbing him for my Chaos Teams Blood Bowl Minotaur if he’d fit, though he looks like a big lad .

Edit: touched up the fur as some spots had gotten covered by flesh and pustule, I’m almost liking the stark white more , might have to wait and see if it grows on me tonight.

Meanwhile base coat of flesh done on the rest of the Blood Bowl skaven.

Thanks Youwashock, Well the plan today was to buy ASOIAF and some clearance stuff at Miniature Market, but the ASOIAF was sold ,so back to the original plan. I ordered 6 of the 9 gangs that I was missing, from ice those come in from my FLGS then I’ll get my loyalty points which will cover 2 more sets which they have in stock.

Started on the Minotaur from the Massive Darkness Troglodytes expansion this morning, depending how tired I am when I get home in about an hour I think he will get some more attention. Right now he is just base coated with Mournfang Brown.

Also shout out to Highlord T. I was wondering about the size of a wrath of kings model and he hooked me up right away.when I get home I’ll have to see if it’ll work out or not.

Edit: Wasn’t feeling like painting last night, right to bed .

Woke up this morning feeling good about my miniature order even though it breaks my unwritten rule of “more cheap models”. With the six gangs I’ll be getting 30 models at about $6 a pop, but since they contain cards and are a true variety of races to use.

Warbands ordered:
Ylthari Guardians
IronSkullz boyz
Zarbags Gits
Farstriders
Sepulchral Guard
Eyes of the Nine

Still left to grab later:
Profiteers
Mollogs Mob
Godsworn Hunt
The FLGS has those three in stock and I’ll use my point s to pick up two of them, hen the buying stuff on hold for a while........

Cool stuff going on here. The Underworlds models are a blast to paint. The small warband size makes it so you don't get burned out before you finish and the models themselves are wonderful. The game is pretty good too!

It’ll be carried by Barnes and Nobles, and from what I hear they ship internationally, so you can still get it. The gangs will definitely come later separately.

I just got the skaven BB team myself this week. May have to get them built soon.


The skaven team is what hooked me, I’ll be watching for your progress.

In the mean time I started on the Massive Darkness troglodytes Minotaur, which I’m painting for the July paint challenge. I got two hours of painting in tonight, which brings it to here.

My blonde Minotaur, no sure what to call him yet.

That's a nice model. I'm not sure I'd describe him as blonde, though. I look forward to seeing the finished piece.

Oh I’m already looking forward to seeing him finished , like most things I start painting I just want them done, but trying to do better and take some time. And learn some brush control .

Thanks Shaso

Well a few hours of painting done between base coat and now.


I got new glasses about a week and a half ago, first time bifocals . The lady said I wasn’t there just yet for my eyes as my vision is still good, but I could switch any time, so I did.....and I’m switching back. I’m taking my glasses off or looking underneath them to do my painting as the bifocals require me to move the model further away to get the vision right, but my skills have been trained to paint upclose . Also driving home a time midnight I’m used to using my peripheral vision, gives me double vision out of the corners of my eyes. Luckily the eyeglass place will replace the lenses for free since it was so new.

Couple more shots from utter angles.


Tried a few new paints, so far I’m liking the tones.

Thanks LTMW ,

Well early yesterday I decided to do a bit of catch up on the Warhammer Underworlds Warbands.

Ordered them early this week, and if I waited till Tuesday to pick them up it would have earned me another $10 in store credit from double point tuesday, but I have 5 days off I need a row. Unfortunately they didn’t get the power unbound decks in so I had to also go to Miniaturemarket to get that, and also grabbed the card sleeves (I think I still need more ) also not pictured is a card box 660 count. I was going to buy a Hate forged Titan at MM too, but they were out temporarily , oh well I’ve got enough to do for a while

Now to unbox, assemble, sleeve, paint

Edit: assembled all 6 warbands,

Went to sleeve the cards and got the wrong size sleeves .

Not me man , I’ve mellowed even more and know my skill level, so mold lines really can’t bring my models much lower .

youwashock wrote:Wow. Quite the influx. Sorry about the sleeves.

Yeah, it was a significant chunk of what I was missing, but season three is right around the corner, so had to get going.

Made another trip to MM and exchanged the sleeves, all sets are now sleeved and ready for action. It’s a hidden cost of this game, season 1 had 400+ cards, season two has 500+ cards, that’s not counting the leader expansion or the Unbound power expansions. Also picked up a box of Zombicide zombie dogs, they have a sale going on, so 20 figs for $10 was a no brainer.

Anyway, really lazy day today, chilled with my wife and finished the newest season of Madame Secretary on Netflix . This week we are having a major heat wave here, so any outdoor work will be early mornings or late a time night. Great time to have a few days off .

Theophony,

What about a brown wash, will let the model stay red, while adding definition and making it look less clean and more Orkish?

They are very characterful, and why’s I chose them to do first out of the six I had picked up.

Well as CB had suggested I added an Agrax wash, but very spot washed instead of all over.

More to do, but need to get on with a second figure to make sure I can pull this band and scheme off.

Wash definitely helped! I would pick out the little armor "patches" and make them a different color to break up the main armor color as you move forward. Just my two cents.

Precision and control are two things that I have not bothered in learning, so bucketfuls is my usual attempt.

Definitely will try that out, I have a hard time doing ramshackle work, which I think is cornerstone to Orcs, or whatever they are called now.

JoshInJapan wrote:The red/orange armor on that orc really pops. I assume you're planning to go back over and add some battle-damage/exposed metal?

They ain’t Orcs until they’ve got good dents and scrapes, just want to get the squad to the same level before the true dirt gets tossed.

inmygravenimage wrote:That's... certainly vibrant! Yeah, the subtle washing has worked well. Maybe a couple of spots of blue, so they end up like Dutch football hooligans (or cans of that most notorious of Scottish, drinks, Irn Bru...)

I did the blue and orange on my chaos Bloodbowl team, so I’m a bit Leary to repeat it here, not exactly sure which direction to go though just yet.

Well got a couple hours in this morning after getting the first layer of orange done last night.

The other members of the squad are almost up to Basha’s Level of completeness now. Still kicking around the other color to be used. Basha did get a purple tongue as a spot color, that might make the cut and get used more, though one of the other thoughts I had was a dark green on some armor panels along with white which is use different on the bosses cape. Still unsure, so I might grab some of my Mantic Orcs and do some tests there before going too much further.

Yes, a little touch of metallic is spots and around the edges on the orange armour like JoshInJapan was suggesting will finish them nicely.

Definitely in the plans, thanks, just trying to sort the secondary/patch armor color.

Initially I was thinking purple for the accent color for the boyz, but looking through my options I didn’t like the purples I have, and not really looking at buying more colors . Then I figured the axe head decorations should be green to symbolize Gorkamorka the AOS version of the Orc god. The dark green is looking promising, and I think I’ll do white checks(yes I’m about to get stupid ) and dags on parts of the armor.

Once that is done then I’ll damage them all up with some metals and rusty bits. Not sure about blood though .

On another line I tried something new with the animal pelt on the bosses shoulder. Primed white, agrax wash over 2/3 of the center and then Nuln oil over the middle 1/3 again. Once that was relatively dry I painted on apothecary white over all of it. I kind of like the effect of an Arctic Wolf sort of hide.

What do you all Think?

Also trying to come up with a cloak color. Don’t really want to do red. Should I continue my insanity and make it the torn flag of some human kingdom they have wrecked? Maybe a pale blue/turquoise sort of color? Or go oldschool and try and do an old Empire flag from before the end of the old world.

Post by: Captain Brown


It is different from the regular Ork brown hides.

I would avoid red for the cloak as your orange is already the bulk of the model. I would go for a contrast to the orange armour...but I think blue or turquoise would be too bright and cheerful for an Ork.

My two cents,

CB

Yeah, Red was definitely out, and for a leader I didn’t want to do standard brown, so that’s why I started to think of the turquoise color. Maybe I’ll do a little empire research as I’m not even sure if Sigmar uses banners.

youwashock wrote:Having a trophy banner for a cape is a pretty cool idea. Also like the idea of checks and such on the armor.

Checks are like obligatory for Orcs, just need to get my hand steady for it.

Well as what usually happens I get sidetracked by my own desires to buy more . I’ve been eyeballing the Wrath of Kings line for some models for a long time, and Miniaturemarket’s retail store has them all at a time least 50% off (except maybe the newest releases like the Gotha Knights). I swung by there this morning and they had a “Boardgames by the pound sale” tons of their regular clearance games being sold at $4 per pound of weight. I saw a few things, but luckily I resigned myself in from buying stuff for another Kings of War army . But I did buy one Wrath of Kings model, which is still too expensive for my usual buy, but he fits with the Orcs in my mind.

Enter the Hate Forged Titan.

Oh he’s a big one all right. 70+mm tall without a base (roughly 3” for us using an antiquated measuring system)

He’s sprueless plastic, which while good left some gaps, first time gap filling a model here , so ignore the poor workmanship as primer will hide the sins.

Zombicide Minotaur for scale reference.

Figure if I ever paint up my Kings of War horde of Orcs then he can fill in a small a giant and will fit well with all my boar riding Orcs.
I tempted to paint him up nice, but then add on the white cut lines and tattoos saying ribs, bacon, fat back, loin, and other terms you see on those butcher shop sign saying showing you what part of the pig the meat comes from.

I think pale turquoise or yellow for the cape would look really good with the orange/green you've got (with the fur a nice rich brown)... If it's supposed to represent a flag, are you thinking you'd freehand some emblem on it? Because that would be pretty badass.

Also, I love that titan model (I've considered using him as a proxy for the Arena Rex Wendigo model) but I thought he came in resin, not HIPS. How sharp are the details?

I really like that pig giant. Great find.

For the banner/cape, it might be easiest to use a large transfer of some sort over your chosen base color. Microsol (or some equivalent) would get it to hug all those curves and folds, and using the tranfer would save you a lot of the heartache of trying to freehand the cape.

Some major progress since I was last here. Nice work on the minotaur, spurring me on to get my entry done. Jealous of your underworld haul, been tempted to do the same myself, particularly with season one as who knows how long they will last with the next one coming. Orcs look great with the orange armour. With regards to the cloak, I think I would just go with a black/grey - you already have a bright orange armour and green skin, another strong colour could be too much. Black would contrast well without competing with the other colours. Could highlight with bluegrey for cold contrast with warm orange

I’d say it would definitely work for an alternate wendigo, I’m not a fan of the Wendigo model by Arena Rex, it rates as high as the tiger in my book. I just got home to check the box, it is plastic according to the contents blurb. Very much like the Sedition Wars plastic with the pegs for assembly, but much nicer details.

I do have MicroSol and MicroSet, but I think I’m going to try my hand at some freehand work, just to keep pushing myself.

Glad to have you back , I see what you mean with the colors, but since he is not a fashionista. The cape would be a conquered banner more than a fashion accessory, so I think drawing attention to it would be alright.

Well, just got homeboy and my twins are at friends houses, so I can sleep in a bit longer, which means a bit of painting time is available .

The seams (see below) will actually work out I think in my plans. Battle scars and tattoo marks hopefully will sell it.

I think I’ve found a design I like which is half yellow and half light blue , and is an Averland flag too.

Well initial paint colors didn’t work for me, way too blonde.

Though it could work out since he is a mutant anyway, I just don’t see it, so new paint scheme and washes.

Still wet from the washes, but man does he make me want to go eat some bacon.
