Hey all!

After a failed attempt at a blog I'm starting a new one. Hopefully this one turns out better. For an idea of my current and possible future projects check out my Pile of Potential here: https://pileofpotential.com/E3DD?project=93801605. Hopefully I can update with some progress later tonight.

"Pile of potential" is a much more positive swing on it! Plus a sweet website for tracking stuff, I might have to get on that.

I see you've already got some finished minis on the lists, any chance we can see that to get an idea of your style/starting technical point before you embark on this blog?

Thanks for the reply! I will update the OP later tonight with current and past projects, but for now I wanted to show a bit of progress on The Dread Pageant, inspired by the new Hedonites of Slaanesh Battletome cover:

My progress thus far:

I spent time with the airbrush getting the gradient down on the first model.

Gorgeous gradient! Looking forward to seeing the details bring it to life.

Thanks! I've started basecoating and glazing the skin, and the black areas are either going to be leather or metallics, which I've also started basecoating.

I still need to tidy up some of the lines between colors and I would like to enrich the skin tone.

Update!
I finished the gradient on all four models, now onto the other materials.

Finished the Dread Pageant. These were really fun to paint aside from the gold, which was a nightmare. I wanted a bright, shining gold, but the paint I was using was super coarse and chunky and didn't thin down well at all. I ordered a new gold, but it didn't get here in time for the Monthly Painting Challenge, which these guys are an entry into.
Without further ado, let's have those pictures!







I spent far too long deciding on the color scheme and painting the test model (the archer) and I basically painted the other members in two days.

So.. Its certainly been a while, but I lost a lot of motivation at the end of February. Ordered some models for a kitbash, found out that I ordered the wrong models, ordered the right models, and finally started the project.

Sorry for the terrible pictures, my camera does not like photographing black, and I didn't have the time to set up better lighting.

I thought your Dread Pageant was a very impressive entry and love the range of skin tones you picked to balance out the warband.

OSJC's scouts are ones I would like to emulate at some point, I'll be watching how this goes with interest!

Thank you!

So it's been a while...

I really lost the motivation to update this blog.

That said, I'm going to keep trying.

With that out of the way, a few finished projects:

The scout sergeant:

Some cars for Gaslands:

The most recent project, the Starblood Stalkers. So far I've only just started the skin. The idea is high contrast, with a dull red shadow and blue-green midtone.


More images for all of these models in my gallery.

Progress!



Painted the feathers, next up are the metallics. I got my hands on a new gold paint, hopefully it works better than my current one.
