Hail Dakka Dakka,

Instagram @stevefamine

I do not take commissions. I paint for a handful of local friends and the quality varies from project to project.

I'm tempted to just order a fat mat as my condo doesnt have room for a 6x4 honestly. Might make two separate 4x4s or get a mat

Those tau really look like they've been in the wars! You've got a really good vibe going there. I suspect they are regretting the choice of white for their livery....

Its easier to paint battle damaged white than fully clean! Its also the style I paint for most models


Quick Campfire for Dungeons and Dragons

Cut a piece of plasticard out, tossed a few bits down, made some bedrolls out of paper towels, added sand and a few rocks. Added the flame and wood and proceeded to try out my new airbrush. Fun test piece

I need to whip up about 13 models in the next two days. A unit of Blood Gorgers and a unit of 3 mechanic looking mercenaries for Cryx

I also need to design the tile sets for my D&D encounters for the campaign I'm DM'ing come March.

I need to make a small beach tileset of shallow water, a jungle tileset, and a flat grass tileset - but all at NIGHT / dark blues/dark colors

Love all the scenery - interested to see where the predator goes. Must be somewhat daunting to work on such a large (and rare) model.

Awesome! I thought it might be one of the older kits. I have one from when I was younger. Very similar, but no mask and no spear. Has the disc instead. Love how yours is turning out.

Dungeon is going to cost me around $10-15 and 3-4 hours into it now for a half dozen hallways and a few encounter rooms. Next up is airbrushing the osl torches and pigments. Maybe two hours of painting left

Iron Hands Space Marine Roster - Clan Belgariad
IRON HANDS BATTALION (Not sure on the exact FOC yet)

HEADQUARTERS
o Chaplain Dreadnought (Assault Cannon, CCW)

CORE TROOPS
o 5x Intercessor Squad (Powerfist) (Stalker Bolt Rifles)

IRON HANDS VANGUARD BATTALION

HEADQUARTERS
o Malkaan Feirros

ELITE
o Dreadnought (Lascannon, Missiles)
o Dreadnought (Lascannon, Missiles)
o Dreadnought (Lascannon, Missiles)
o Venerable Dreadnought (Plasma Cannon, CCW)
o P. Ancient w/ Flag
o P. Apothecary

Additional Models to be Painted:
o 5x Terminator Squad (Assault Cannon) - I'd never really use this unit. Test Scheme
o Techmarine (Servo-Harness)
o Iron Clad Dreadnought (Chainfist, Missiles, CCW) - This is a ten year old dreadnought that is fairly beaten and paint stripped - it looks sort of crappy so I may not use it if the event is paint judged
o Dreadnought (CCW, CCW) - I doubt I'll use this load out often - I may use it as a count as Ironclad

I'm ditching the Ultramarine Characters for now and may use them on a different project. Since Calgar has some big fists I may make him a "Iron Hand" Calgar and paint him as such but I'm not fully committed just yet.

Estimated 75 hours left on the Iron Hands to finish them off

Future Projects:

- Frostgrave 3x3 and 2x2 Table and + 80~ or so Minis
- Imperial Guard Armored Division (Traitor Guard) - I currently have this army unbuilt in boxes - super low priority

Also this year marks the end of my commission painting of the past ten years from when I was a wee lad at the age of 17. I'll only work on personal stuff and client's armies that I have already worked on prior.

Iron Hands are in the highlighting stage

This is a Christmas present for a friend I’m working on - it’s his character in classic WoW. He’s geared in the end game items he should have during phase 2. Inspired by the hearthstone card’s artwork shown here: https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Perdition%27s_Blade

He is a friend of over ten years of online gaming and we've hung out a lot over the years in person as well. A truly cool guy - and instead of buying him a random steam game this year I thought I'd send him this to add to his shelf of collector edition game statues

The model is still unpainted - I havent actually done any detail work - just lighting and base coats

next we have:

I'm raging about about this project - not sure where to go for the colors. This is part 2 of 3 for the terrain. Part 3 is on its way - added 7 more wall sections and 8 treasure tokens for Frostgrave

The bottom left piece / square chunk with the dead tree is gbetting binned and broken apart - it really doesnt match the board

This will all be basecoated again in about two weeks

5. Dry brush khaki yellow brown
6. Drybrush bleached bone
7. Heavy Teal wash metals

Hi Stevefamine, your terrain is coming along great. The ponds/large puddles are particularly effective. How did you achieve their look? Did you use resin or something else?


Stevefamine's Painting Log 2020 (City Terrain: 28mm 4x8 table)  @ 2020/02/04 15:55:50


Post by: Stevefamine


Thanks!

I was out of clear epoxy resin so I poured normal resin in the ponds and covered them with two layers of (still drying) thick gloss so far. I sprinkle a tad bit of dry pigments in and toss in some leaves.

Mordheim - I want to build a dozen or so ruined buildings with second level walkways first. I only know two local players that would be down to play.

Frostgrave - More than ten players are going to be in this local league so it'll see a ton of Frostgrave!

Nearly complete - but I’ll take this week off. Album of the current progress with some photos of this setup: https://imgur.com/gallery/HJcwQdi

I picked up yellow and brown static grass and tufts. The goal of this project was to avoid using green grass and staying with the Autumn theme. I need to pick out and highlight the roses, skulls, all of the white brick edge highlighting and also drop some more pigments down.

Great progress on the building. It is going to be great.

Was there a lot of work to get the Bronkorpus tank to look good? Wondering if it is worth it to buy a few to convert up for my renegades or if it is too much work.
I see you have added a lot of stuff to the back, is that a weak point?

The back is the weak point/dead zone. That and the front needs some work. It scales better as a Chimera. It's great for a non-standard guard like traitors

No - but that was one of the original plans. Friend built anything with a pyramid / angled edge and he plans to get better as he makes more in the future.

Lovely nids. I like the paint scheme, simple but effective. And I know the old 3rd ed grinfexes and ganglytyrants aren't the best, but I have a fair bit of nostalgia for them. Good to see they're still in use.

Speaking of 3rd ed nids, are those zoanthrope heads on tyrant guard bodies? Any notes about that?

You are correct! Recasted Zoan heads without the shell hat

Cool scheme on the Tyranids. Imagine how cool 11.5k of them would look! Even at your good rate, it’d probably take a few years!

I have it planned in a few sections:

- Titans: Do them all the same week Hierophant/harridan at the same time
- Spearhead/Carnifex Brick: Paint all the large bugs at once to keep them similar. 3 Flyrants and 10 Carnifexs
- Metal Models Round 2: Old Raveners, Red Terror, Broodlord Zoans, other metal bugs
- Mid Sized Warrior Body Conversions, 20 warriors, raveners, and other mid sized bodies
- The Dreaded Swarm: Simplegreen 140 Guants 50 stealers, try to full airbrush them
- Ripper Week: Literally 50 Ripper Swarms

Now to finish Iron Hands!

I plan it to be! Most of the time will be spent building/stripping/fixing 10 year old models.

I also want to make a 6x6 table next for 40k

Nice shot of all those pesky alien bugs. Made me scratch myself immediately Hope you can stick to your plan and excited to see you tackling the 40k table, seeing how great your other terrain pieces always come out!

Thanks! Yeah that was a goof one off picture I took. I still don't like most of the photos I'm taking.

I really want to work on terrain but those Iron Hands marines are crushing my will to live

I'm trying to get a week off of work to crank out my entire next 6x8 table this month. We'll see how it goes. I only want to work on terrain

Honestly feth painting minis. I don't enjoy it and I despise painting to a higher quality then "tabletop". Iron hands are my 20th space marine army thats 2k+ points.

Go where the painting muse takes you. No reason to burn yourself out on something when you could work on something else that you want to do.

That is the exact plan. How did you know?

6x6 or 6x8. Sovietwave sort of industrial set of buildings. Cold war space program but imperium. Maglev train, destroyed rocket, soviet destroyed tank yards. Bodies in shallow water, hanging corpses, graffiti and more. Green overgrowth, rust, heavy white orange red yellow Asimov colors.

That sounds awesome! Good luck getting it moving on your week off!

Really impressive that you’ve painted up 20x2k Space Marines... 40k is an apt number of points that’s for sure! Do you still have them all or have you sold them?

Maybe 14 of the armies were commissions. I did commissions for years for locals.

I never keep more than 2-3 armies at a time and rotate out any others/sell

I'm a broken cog in the world of finance. I have a Boiler Room type analyst role and I cater/support the deals the aggressive sales team makes. It's a screaming and disorganized rush from 3am to the end of day every day and every weekend. Double paychecks, bonuses, buying titans, and buying fancy new electronics isn't a feasible trade. I had to take a week off due to stress and mental burnout. I've never been a person to go to a psychologist but I made my first appointment off a recommendation from a friend during the next week. I'll channel the desperation and rage into this piece. Full Hemingway mode: I get properly fethed up when I binge paint on big projects. I'm loaded up this week with the unholy trinity of cigars, liquor, and coffee.

That gives me from 10/10 - 10/18 to build a table.

Themes and ideas:

- Destroyed 28mm cityscape.
- Retro Sci Fi Space Program/Cold War Russian Chernobyl aesthetic. Asiimov
- Brutalism Architecture for larger structures
- Dirty filthy white concrete color scheme. Minor colors will be chosen later
- Drowned corpses in puddles, displays of public executions, and destroyed vehicles
- 6x6 Scenario table layout for Apocalypse (4x8 Variation)
- 4x6 Standard Battlefield modular layout
- Defensive areas/gun emplacements for a large Tyranid vs Imperial fight or a Chaos vs. Imperial
- Graffiti/some elements of a GSC or Chaos Cult around the buildings
- One 2x2 "Installation" / Supermassive platform type of tile
- Maglev/Train
- Around 12-14 structures or modular pieces
- Destroy old terrain and use those pieces in this table
- War Memorial/statues and a wall of papers for missing people

Still collecting materials now! We're at 100 barrels and 100+ tires!

Sounds like work sucks! Hopefully a week of hobbying and drinking will help relieve some stress! Failing that, it’s always good to talk, so maybe the psychologist will help. Either way the plans for the table sound amazing, the wall a pictures should be pretty grim dark. You should put some Easter eggs in there like Elvis, Princess Di or the pictures of the Primarchs

Ohhhh yeah I have to think of some good easter eggs. Last time I had Emperor Palpatine as a statue on a table and a few funny graffiti additons

From 2016/2017 I made a similar memorial piece and I want to capture the sadness again

Looking forwards to seeing how you solve the mix of modularity and looks. That is my main issue when planning my board.

A week of drinking and building terrain does seem therapeutic. I do not envy you Americans with your seemingly very stressful work/life balances.

Thanks Illumini - yeah Americans are a bit wild. The "Live for the weekend" mindset is really built in. It's the only free time you have!
