Those gnomes look solid . Good start on the KD stuff as well.

Thanks guys! The Gnomes were surprisingly fun to paint, I've got the other set too to work on... One day.


All change!
Was struggling to make any progress on my trio of ladies, so I put them aside at the weekend (I'll try again with them another time) and started some other stuff.

I'm finishing off my Rotten Mummy (Twisted):-



He's going well so far, I've still got to paint all his beetles though.

And started my Ringtail Vixen (Kingdom Death):-



I'm happy with her tails, but I wish her eyes had turned out better (I just couldn't find her left one).

Right? If the sculptor is going to cover the eye, they can at least have the decency to cover it completely, not this halfway nonsense that leaves us trying to sneak a partial pupil in.

I had not noticed the bestial traits on the Vixen before. Looks good.

I can't entirely blame the sculptor on this one, I'm really starting to struggle with more "true-scale" faces, I don't think my hands and eyes are completely up to the job anymore

Yeah, I thought she was just wearing a costume until I got some paint on.


Still not painting as much as I'd like, but I did manage to finish my Rotten Mummy (Twisted):-




Kind of hard to get a picture that shows off all his little details, but I'm really pleased with him.

Ringtail Vixen still has a little way to go:-



I've been stuck on what colour to paint her pointy stick, but I think I'm getting there.

Also prepped the next pair, the Crusader (GW):-



And Theron (Guildball):-

The painting continues to go slowly (too slowly), but I have managed to finish the Ringtail Vixen (Kingdom Death):-




Still not happy with her face, but overall she doesn't look too bad.

Theron:-



And the Crusader:-



Have a ways to go, but I should hopefully have them done by the end of the year.

Love the tails on Foxy. Turned out super good. Crusader is shaping up great, too. Sweet metallics and cloth.

I've said this before, but I love the way you paint skin. So buttery smooth! The Crusaders's also shaping up beautifully.

Getting a little bit more painting done lately, but still haven't finished anything.



Crusader is most of the way there, Theron is finished from the waist up (he's covered in so many doodads).

Managed to get some stuff wrapped up just in time.

Theron (Guild Ball) is done:-



Had fun painting up all his stitches, it's oddly relaxing.

The Crusader (Games Workshop) is also done:-




Really like the job I've done on this guy, gotta stop making life difficult for myself by fully assembling these minis with hard to reach places though.

And, finally finished Swamp Witch Sophie (Reaper):-




Glad to get this one done at last, a pity she's got such googly eyes.


And as that's probably it for this year, decided to do an end-of-year tally:-



Painted a lot more minis than I thought, and beat last years total by 4 whole minis (41 altogether).
If I stopped being such a hobby butterfly I could probably get even more done, so next year I'm going to aim for finishing 52 minis. Painting 1 mini a week shouldn't be that hard should it?

Ringtail turned out great

The red on the crusader is luscious.

Jason Mamoana/Theron is really well done.

would not have noticed googly eyes on swamp witch Sophie if you hadn’t pointed them out . She doesn’t look very witchy, looks more swamp faerie with pet too me, but then again my witches need to be old ladies with bad complexions.

Officially, she's actually Mermaid Sophie which I think makes even less sense.

Yeah, I'm definitely going to keep doing an end of year count-up. Even with my plog I forget about half of what I paint, so it's a nice motivational boost to see I'm actually making a bit of progress against the endless hordes!


Been making a start on some new stuff.
The first project of the new year is Katakros (Games Workshop):-



Working on his fancy base at the moment.

The other thing I want to do is make a dent in my big pile of Reaper minis I keep buying and not painting.
The first one is a Dark Elf Priestess:-



Unfortunately she was missing a pointy ear, so she's now a vampire.

I won't repeat what others have said, but I'll add a thing - that bow in Theron hand is magnificent. Got a chance to pull once a composite ash-and-oak bow that had exactly the same color (even if my memory is faulty that is what I've remembered after looking at the picture). And the hint at the wood texture is great. And Sophie from under Your brush looks more Polynesian than swampy, save for the skin tone. Great!

Post by: aku-chan


Thanks! I'm pleased the bow looks realistic, I was just happy I did a decent job edge highlighting it!


Finished my first mini of the year, Ashlynn the Vampire (originally a Dark Elf Priestess from Reaper):-



Rather pleased with her face and hair, the rest not so much, but at least I painted it fast (for me).

I've also finished Katakros fancy base:-




I had fun doing the tile-work.

And I've started the first member of his team:-



I've also started my next Reaper mini:-



A tall river pirate lady.

I continue to make progress!

Finished Parchment Guy:-



Yes, I did glue his scroll on upside-down
He was originally more bony, but the bone armour just didn't look right when I tried it, so I've fallen back on my usual metallics.



I've also made a start on Bird Guy:-



I've got his bird cage finished so far.

I'm also making slow progress on my pirate lady:-



gotta figure out what colour all her doodads are going to be.

Thanks! Those are her original cheekbones, it's a large part of why I went down the vampire route with her.


Finished another mini woohoo!
It's my tall lady river pirate (Reaper), I'm calling her Mary Jo:-



Really happy with how this one turned out, even though my experiment with freckles didn't work.

Making good progress with my bone guys, Bird Guy is almost done:-



Just his ink bottle to go (I've been putting it off), and made a start on Knight Guy:-



I wanted to see if purple worked as an armour colour.

And I've picked my next Reaper mini:-



Remus Raducan, hooray for not having to think up a name this time!

Bone guys are coming along nicely . Who cares if the scroll is upside down or not, it’s an ancient dead language, who knows what it means, probably sweet and sour chicken .

Pirate lady came out awesome. Looking forward to your next bones...reaper or otherwise guys.

Not a lot of painting done this week.

Received a big pile of stuff from Antimatter Games, and it inspired me to give my collection a good sort out and try and catalogue it a bit.
Even after getting rid of a few things (I'm never going to paint all those dudes I put together from the old Kingdom Death armour kits), I'm left with over 600 minis.

Considering I've still got a load of Kingdom Death stuff to arrive (eventually), and I went a bit mad on miniature board game Kickstarters last year, I'm going to have to really concentrate on working through the backlog and cutting back on the buying for at least a few years

At least I found some nice minis I forgot I had, and I can now use a random number generator to choose what minis I paint.

Had a bit of a push to get stuff finished over the weekend.

Finished Remus (Reaper):-



Struggled a bit with this one, just didn't find him that interesting to paint.

Also finished the latest skelly bro, Knight Guy:-




That base is filling up slowly.

Now I've started the next one in the queue, Banner Guy:-



He's got a long way to go.

And my next Reaper mini, Amiri:-



She's an iconic barbarian apparently.

Glad to know the idea works! I just need something that gets me digging into my backlog a bit more, my head is far to easily turned by newer, shinier minis.


Made a bit of progress on everything this week:-

Banner Guy is mostly done:-



Just gotta try to think of how to do the banner without making the whole thing too colourful.

Amiri is getting there:-



I'm actually really pleased with how she's turning out so far.

And I've started my first 100% computer chosen mini, Rage (Guild Ball):-



Early days on this one.

That kind of chunky stitching has been showing up on quite a few of my minis lately, so I've been getting plenty of practice.


Got Banner Guy all finished:-





The base is getting fuller, just the boss skelly dude left to do.

Making decent progress on Amiri:-



Just a handful of little details left and her bag of javelins that I keep forgetting about.

And Rage is getting there too:-



Again, just a few details to go.
Hopefully I should get these two finished this week.

Rage looks like a cross between Bill Cutting and Lucky the Leprechaun. Those kids are going to regret messing with his Lucky Charms. Is Amiri the BONES version?

No, Amiri is in metal. Wasn't a fan of Reapers Bone material until they brought out the Bones Black stuff.


Speaking of Amiri, she's all done:-



Definitely one of my better paint jobs.

I also finished Rage:-



He was also a lot of fun to paint.

Didn't get much done to my Bony Guy though:-



That cape took far too long to paint.

And I've had my next two minis chosen for me, it's double Reaper this time:-



Evshyvandra Duskwidow, a scary Elf chick.



Damaris Walmund, vampire hunter.

I'm going to have to start making up the names for my Reaper minis, they're becoming too much word-soup.

I discovered the one fatal flaw in my randomised mini plan, if I'm not too interested in the mini it's pretty much impossible to get me to work on it (It didn't help that I was also getting rather burnt out on working on my Bony Dudes).

So I took a few days off, cleared my desk, revised my plan and started again.
And now I've finished Hazel Bodkin (Wolsung):-



She's a little messy in places, I thought I could easily paint her with her slingshot attached, I was wrong.

I've also mostly finished Screamin' Eddie (Games Workshop):-



I'd forgotten how good the big mutants in the Rouge Trader set were.

Thanks guys! I saw Eddie as more of a generic mutant, the kind you might find wandering a radioactive wasteland.


Speaking of Eddie, he's finished already:-



Really pleased with how he turned out.

Next up, I have another Halfling:-



This is "Pop" Bodkin, Hazels father, and he's coming along nicely so far.

And another mutant:-



The horrifying Engineer, I've just basecoated his skin so there's still lots to do.

Thanks! It helped that all his detail was super-chunky so I could do some proper lining for a change.


Another mini finished, 'Pop' Bodkin (Wolsung):-



Had a lot of fun with this one, he turned out to be a pretty characterful mini.

The Engineer is coming along slowly:-



He's proving to be quite fiddly so I'm finishing off his skin details section by section, so far I've done his heads, shoulders, chest and back.

Couldn't decide what I wanted to start next, so I cranked up the random number generator, but instead of just doing whatever one it picked (That didn't work out too well last time) I got it to pick out a selection I could chose from, so I'm starting my first Deep Wars mini:-



He's a deep sea diver of some sort.

Nice work, as always.

I was wondering if you could explain your painting style? I know you put a sepia wash over a white basecoat, but do you then apply many layers of glaze, or do you block out solid colors?

There's not really much to explain, the wash is just there to help me make out the details and, hopefully, fill in all the nooks and crannies, so you don't get those little white specks you sometimes get from undercoating with white primer. Then I paint over it all with solid blocks of colour, plus the usual shading and highlights.

I've seen stuff painted up with just glazes, and it looks really cool but I'm too messy a painter to try something like that.


When I was choosing a new mini to paint, one of the suggestions my computer came up with was to finally finish off my Storm Knight, so here he is:-




Don't usually paint the same mini twice, but he's one of my all time favourites!
I think I prefer this second version (he's more colourful), but I ran into the same problem that I did with the first one, his cloud cape needs a lot more time and effort spent on it than I'm willing to put in. Doesn't look too bad though.

The Engineer and Diver are coming along nicely, but I don't think I've done enough to warrant any new piccys yet.

Unh! Double-up! Unh-unh!

He looks great. The new guy rocks with the more colorful scheme. Very comic book villain. The amorphous look on the cape is awesome. This version is more "storm" to me. The previous one is more "cloud."

More minis finished!
First there's 'Ironbelly' Klegg (Deep Wars):-



I'm really pleased with how he turned out, even if I do still suck at painting crystals.

And The Engineer (Games Workshop):-




Kinda meh on this one, even though his belly fire came out better than expected.

Nothing new to show at the moment.
I did have a couple of guys assembled, but they both needed some gap-filling, and, unfortunately my Green Stuff has gone rock hard since I last used it a couple weeks ago.

Thanks everyone!
Yeah, I was super pleased with how his lenses came out, they may not be particularly well blended, but they're a big step up from how I normally paint such things.

I planned to, but they've got to wait until I get more greenstuff.
Triton the Merman is sitting on the desk right now, with his many gaps.


Nothing finished to show off, I spent a few days working on my 10th Anniversary Kingdom Death Survivors before realising they're just not that fun to paint, so I switched to a pair of Twisted figures yesterday and I'm making much better progress:-



That's Trica Harker and Squirrel the Urchin.

Yeah, kinda regretting picking up that set.
You would think they would make special edition minis, you know, special. But they're so bland compared with the others they've put out recently.


In better news, two more finished minis!
Tricia Harker (Twisted):-



Struggled a bit with her legs, couldn't figure out if they were weird boots or robot legs, but I'm pretty pleased with the rest.

And Squirrel the Urchin (Twisted):-



Still got a load of these little guys to paint.

Next on the desk is these two:-



A Games Workshop Faun and a Kingdom Death Cleric, very early days on both.

The painting is going slow and steady:-



The eyes on both have gone pretty googly, but they don't look too bad in hand.

I think the eyes on the Cleric are more noticeably wonky than on the Faun. Could be the angle, but the Faun's eyes look pretty good. Lovely green on the Cleric.

Managed to get my lady Faun all wrapped up this week:-



Had trouble with her woven armour stuff (It came out best on her quiver), but she looks okay.

Almost finished the Cleric:-



Just need to tidy up her boots and paint her gruesome base.

Then I can start on the new guys, the Artful Dodger (Twisted):-



And Triton (Deep Wars):-



Who is very top-heavy.

Great work on the faun
The cleric is coming along very nicely.

Dodger looks like a very cool figure.

Triton looks like a beast. The deepwars stuff is starting to call me. I just put in the $1 on the KS to get the free PDFs to read the rules and get an idea before spending real money/time/effort to proceed. What do you think of the game itself?

Unfortunately, I don't play Deep Wars (I'm not much of a gamer) so I can't tell you too much about it.

The Cleric is standing on more than bones, it's sort of a people puddle.


Got the Cleric (Kingdom Death) finished faster than I thought:-





I was a lot happier with this one before I took my final pictures.
Not sure what it is, but overall my minis just aren't looking that good any more (And I was never painting to a particularly high standard in the first place).

Something to ponder on while painting the new guys.

I don't like Kingdom Deaths stuff when the proportions get too exaggerated, which Cleric suffers from a bit, but she has a lovely wacky costume to make up for it.


Slowly painting stuff still, Mostly I've been working on Tritons tail:-



I've been using some of that fancy colour-shifting paint, looks great in hand but photographs poorly.
I also can't work out how to shade and highlight the stuff, so I don't think I'll use it on such a large area again.

Also working on Dodger:-



Who's looking pretty terrible at the moment, I'm hoping that's just a bad picture.

And I've also added Corsair (Guild Ball) to the table:-



At least he's looking okay-ish.


Painting towards a brighter tomorrow! (Update 2 Aug - He's a good boy) @ 2020/05/07 19:28:49

Finally got something else finished!

Here's Triton (Deep Wars):-



The highlights are a bit rough but overall I think he turned out okay.

Almost managed to finish Dodger and Corsair:-



Should, hopefully, get them finished in the next couple of days.

And then it's on to other things:-



The Shroomancer!



And this will eventually be a submarine.

Finished more stuff, Corsair (Guild Ball):-



Pretty happy with this one, but my Guild Ball stuff always turns out decent for some reason.

And the Artful Dodger (Twisted):-



Still feel meh about this guy, he remained hard to paint and even harder to photograph to the very end.

Work in progress wise, I've made a start to the Shroomancer:-



Early days, but I'm happy I seem to have captured his 'WTF is that!' expression.

Also working on the fancy coral reef base for my submarine:-



I could really use a bigger brush for these bigger minis.

Nice to see DeepWars and some of the more 'niche' stuff get your unique treatment. Although I love to see it on anything really!

Is the plan on the coral base for it to be all sorts of different colours and a vibrant coral reef, or something more subdued? I think it could be a wonderful canvas for your style

Thanks! Like with Tritons base it's going to be mainly green, with the various corals picked out. There's a lot more coral on this one though, so it should be a bit more colourful.


Slow but steady progress this week.



I don't want to jinx myself, but the Shroomancer is coming along very nicely.



Just one last type of coral to paint, unfortunately there's dozens of the little beggers.

Antimatter Games makes the sub, it's part of their Deep Wars line.


Finally got the 'Shroomancer finished, getting all my 7th Continent stuff ready for sale took more time than I thought!



Really pleased with this one, I think it's cartoony style worked well with how I paint.

Got a bit further with my sub cockpit:-



Just gotta repaint the window in the door (it's looking a bit meh), and then the pilot and his chair.
Then I can assemble the sub itself.

Also brought an Ogre (Games Workshop) to the table:-



Just done his skin so far.

He's getting there slowly.


Finished my submarine cockpit:-



And now I've started on one half of the submarine:-



Took a lot of work getting it prepped, it was that terrible resin combination of needing lots of clean-up and incredibly fragile, and I managed to break one of the clear resin parts so no windows for my cockpit
Currently I'm not sure if I should go for a lighter metallic blue or not.

As the submarine used up a lot of hobby time, didn't make much progress on my Ogre:-



But he is getting there.

Still nothing to show off.
Was making steady if incredibly slow progress, when my bottle of black went all gloopy.
Almost a week later and I'm still waiting on the new one I ordered, so I took this time to assemble some new minis I've treated myself to:-



It's the Marvel Crisis Protocol starter set (just got a little bit more terrain to build).
Pretty decent plastic minis, they're not Games Workshop good, but they're at least on par with what Malifaux and Kingdom Death are putting out.

Not looking forward to trying to paint Spider-man though.

Got fed up waiting for my bottle of black (I ordered another one in the end, now I have two!), so I started some other stuff.

Lady Fancy Hair has returned to the table:-



Just got to do her base now.

Hornblower!:-



I did a much better job of painting his face than that picture suggests, at least I think I did.

And Doctor Octopus:-



His head was surprisingly difficult to paint given how large it is.

Once these guys are done, I'll get back to the Sub and Ogre.

...Hopefully.

Yeah, I wanted to get some bright colours on her, break up all that brown.


The recent hot weather has made painting a little difficult, but I did finish Lady Fancy Hair:-



Anyone who has read the Kingdom Death news thread recently will know I'm not the companies biggest fan right now, but I've got to admit they make really nice minis.

And while I'm in a Kingdom Death mood, I started another one:-



The, rather creepy, Skully.

I also made progress on Hornblower:-



Why can't I take a decent picture of his face

And Doc Ock:-



I'm a bit out of my comfort zone with this guy, but it's been fun to paint so far.

Hopefully, I'll get a bit more done this week.

Cooler weather means more painting!

Doctor Octopus is finished:-



He's painted a bit basically, and I overdid the washes in places, but I had fun painting him.

Hornblower is getting there:-



Just his legs to go.

Skully still has further to go though:-



Made a start on their armour.

I've accepted this guy will never photograph well, looks good in hand though.

Skully is mostly done:-



Just wraps and cloth left.

And Ogre has returned:-



Got most of him done, just small bits to go.

Also prepped Angry Joe for when I finish Skully:-



I love the Gorm armour set.

While she's probably my least favourite of the minis out of the Gigalion expansion, she was fun to paint

And the Ogre:-

Nothing finished this week, painting Angry Joes bodysuit used up a lot of my painting mojo:-




I forgot about all the tiny details on these Gorm-suits.

But I did manage to paint a bit more Submarine:-



3/10s finished!

I also made a start to my Seahorseman:-



He's the first of a big batch of random minis I prepped this week:-



That should keep me going for a while.

More finished stuff!
Angry Joe:-





He was a lot of fun to paint, despite all the fiddly bits!
Now I've got all the Gigalion Survivors painted I just need to get the Gigalion itself done ...One day.

Seahorseman (now known as Sir Shelly the Seahorse Knight):-



Another fun one, still can't paint gems though.

Also still chugging away at my submarine, should have one half finished by the end of next week hopefully.

Finished another mini, Quaff:-



Thought I'd get the little woofer out the way since he was the simplest in the pile (only took me two days to finish, that's something of a speed record for me).

I also finished half a submarine:-



Taking a break before I start on the second half though, so I'm painting my Gigalion:-



Well, technically I'm painting the Gigalions base at the moment.

I've also made a start to Hooper:-



The castings not great on this one, but it's going well so far.

And I've made a start to Baron Zemo:-



With AMG revealing so much Marvel stuff over the last few days, I thought I'd better make more progress on my starter set.
His details are disappointingly soft in places though.

Yeah the dog was surprisingly fun to paint, I should tackle more of my Guild Ball mascot animals.


Tried to get stuff finished but it's just too dang hot at the moment.

Baron Zemo is about 95% done:-



Just need to tidy up his pants.

And Hooper is at about 80%:-



He also needs tidy pants and a few other bits.

But I did manage to finish the Gigalions secret stash of human heads:-




Now I just need to figure out what colour dramatic dust clouds are.
