My niece always says purple cow to try and get rid of hiccups. It doesn't work. Maybe I should show her your purple WIP Zoat and have her concentrate on that.

Nice start on the terminators.

Purple Zoat! Could work.

Thanks for the comments! New page. Guess it is good I was able to get pics of the latest minis. Nothing that will set the world on fire, but they are done. Up first, a Deathwing Terminator. Finished one to see how the rest will go. Gritty, but I like it a bit.





Next a pair of Silent Ones for Malifaux. These gals suffer greatly from Malifaux pair syndrome. One model, dynamic, cool, interesting. The other? She'll take two of something while she waits for the bus. Even her cape is bored. Almost skipped painting her like I did with Frost's partner. Strange how a set of minis can come with one that is so good, and the other is hardly worth the bother of assembling. Just the Ice Dancers to go, now. Sort of looking forward to seeing the cold minis all done.





Finishing off with Ainoa the Unforgiven, a limited edition model from Rackham produced for Brookhurst Hobbies, one of the first US outlets for Confrontation back in the early days. Did some different things, playing around. With dubious results. Oh, well.





As always, plenty more on the go. Painting time was sparse again this week. Up over 600 images in the gallery. Yay.

Thanks for looking!

I really like the colour for thre Deathwing. I prefer a white finish to a bone one, especially as most people overdarken the bone and it lands up both way too warm and way too saturated.

I really see what you mean about the poses. Do you need both for the game, or can you just use one of them?

Though guards may sleep and ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Thanks, Fifty.

I think you could just use one. I am pretty fuzzy on all Malifaux rules, having never played.

Deathwing looks awesome.

The Malifaux silent ones came out stunning. Really like the white of their capes.

Never got into confrontation. Just never was a style I could get behind. Years later the wolves have grown on me, but would only know because of CMoN figures.

Great job on the Deathwing terminator. Like the grime on him - with the base it looks like he's been doing some urban footslogging.

Totally hear you on Malifaux pairs - the Death Marshalls had one who looked like he was falling backwards off his coffin, the Lucas Kincade starter set had one wastrel who didn't fit the aesthetic of the other two at all, all sorts of problems. Ah well, maybe they do it on purpose to make the other model look that much better.

Edited for spelling

Those Silent Ones came out great, yeah I also like the one ordering the beers. And the crystals on the base of the other one look dope. Also like the hair of Ainoa a lot.

The Deathwing Terminator looks awesome, really really grimdark! He almost looks to be walking down a dimly lit corridor of a Space Hulk. His eyes are really nice, what colours did you use for them?

Thank you, all!

gobert, the eye socket was filled with Contrast BA Red, then the eye was painted with Army Painter's basic red (forget the name), then a dot of Fire Dragon Bright for the center.

Terminator looks very menacing, you can feel those eyes burning into your skull.
And yeah, the one pose of the Maulifax mini is very weird. Were they taking bets between the designers how far they could go before someone stops them?

Thanks, Viterbi.

Thankfully, the Ice Dancers do not suffer from MOMS (Malifaux "Other-Model" Syndrome). One sculpt is clearly superior, but the other isn't throwaway trash.

Quick WiP. Other stuff going on, but these two are showing the most progress.



Thanks for looking!

I will join the choir: the mushroom lady is simply amazing! I really liked the colors on her.

Laughed at this
Glad you painted her as well, even though the model might be a bit boring.

Ainoa the Unforgiven looks really good too!
The name is interesting, as 'ainoa' is a finnish word meaning something similar as 'the only one'.

WIP models looking great already.

Are the Contemptor weapon arms a kitbash? if so they look great.

Ainoa does not look dubious at all, I really like the extreme highlights and contrast (not the citadel paint, damn you GW!) on the miniature. The eyes are especially effective. Throw in a couple of great Malifaux minis (those capes are done really well) and a Terminator that has clearly seen some action in the depths of a Space Hulk and it is all excellent work.

Thanks, guys!

Ezki, I gave her the benefit of the doubt. More likely she is just a rude cannibal throwing gestures on the street corner.

ListenToMeWarriors, the arms are indeed kitbashed. Left over turrets from Imperial Knights.

Appreciate the comments, everyone.

Nice bit of progress on The Dread, his lady friend has some pretty exaggerated proportions though! It must be warm in her dystopian future!

Thank you!

This week has been horrid for painting progress. But!

What's the best thing to do when you aren't painting? Buy minis. Yeah.



As I have painted all of 6 models from my double-Marine 8th edition set, I made sure to not buy Indomitus. Especially since I haven't played 40K in 4 or 5 years. And that was a couple games of 3rd edition. However, I wanted a Judiciar, and someone on ebay had one bundled with the LT, who is also a pretty cool mini, so I grabbed those up for roughly the price of one character model these days. Like most, I plan on tweaking the Judiciar, and will most likely change up the LT as well. If he ever gets painted.

The judicair is the stand out model of the set, IMHO. With the LT a solid runner up. (I prefer the chaplain over the Lt, but admit to being biased towards out zealous friends)

That lettering on the dread is ace, do you pencil it in beforehand or what is your method?

Thank you for the comments!

Nev, I would be inclined to agree. The Judiciar is one of those models that will be all over soon enough. Tons of potential. However, he also seems to be "not quite" for many of us. See below.

Viterbi, I use black Micron pens for my lettering and purity scribbles. I don't lay anything out beforehand, but may take a practice lap on a scrap of paper or something.

Still having a painting lull, so I worked on getting the Judiciar modifications out of my head.



Nothing too major. Thanks for looking!

Nice conversion job on the Judiciar model! That head is a great choice and the hand holding the helmet looks fantastic! How does the underside of the helmet look? Did you manage to add any details in?

Nice work. Somehow I picture him walking out of a building, right before it explodes. One of those Hollywood scenes that gets put in the trailer. Calmly, as the greenscreened explosion in the background, snapping off a witty one-liner or catch phrase.
