I'm glad to be keeping you interested.

I decided to go for something bigger this time before the summer draws to a close.
I've had this tree lady for a few years or more, along with several others from the same company, so it's nice to cross her off my list. She along with all the original models have long since sold out on their store.
You'll notice in the last few pictures her little pet, Mr. Jackalope. He was the bonus for pledging on the kickstarter, along with this alternate head I used.
The last shot is with my only finished spawn for scale in order to appreciate her size. Not the biggest from Creature Caster by far, but still big enough.

Thanks a lot JustALittleOrkish. It's always nice to see a new face visiting my page. Maybe next summer I'll get around to my Queen of Ecstasy for something truly immense, compared to her the Tree Lady is a bit of a shorty. Of course I still to have finish my Acastus Knight Asterius too.

For now here is the second last hero left from Tainted Grail, Maggot. Maybe his mom was a Slipknot fan, who knows. I find it amusing how he is described as having an addiction to magic mushrooms. I assume they have some sort of practical application within this setting. That just leaves one character left and some of the plastic dials to do at some point.

I was probably going to hold off on her for the time being though. I was thinking about starting this guy, the Warrior Demon, also from Creature Caster. He doesn't look that imposing just yet, but wait until I attach his weapon arm and his fairly massive wings.

So there was a change of plans, for the moment anyway.
I had been intimidated to go back to my big guy, the Asterious, since the arms are most likely going to be the most challenging to build, but I didn't want to be back in school with no progress to show on him yet again. In fact it had been almost exactly a year since I'd touched anything 40k related.

The project has been fraught with pieces that didn't quite fit properly or took some real effort to get even halfway right, but I'm starting to make headway. I added the carapace missile launcher rack, the volcano cannons, and the back armor, along with some basic basing.
We'll see if I can summon the courage to begin the final phase of assembly. Wish me luck.

Here is the big unveiling of what will more than likely be the biggest model I will ever complete, the Acastus Knight Asterius. At just a hair over a foot tall, it's not quite a miniature.
You can see the size difference between him and a Foul Blightspawn as well as Morty.

My 2 part epoxy seems to have worked. Normal super glue just wouldn't have cut it for the major joints. His base is a wooden plaque to provide the needed support.
He's now in his spot on the bottom shelf of my display case since it's the only one capable of holding his weight. It's a nerve wracking experience carrying him, but from my guess he weighs about 5 pounds.
The green on the guns seems a bit lighter in shade than what I did last year, but I'm hoping that's because it was the only part that wasn't varnished at the time.
The shoulder pads and the carapace were the most warped parts, but I did my best to correct them with green stuff. It's just a shame that there is no way to construct it to allow the cockpit to be visible. Hopefully I'll be able to do so when I eventually get around to my Chaos Knight despite him being much smaller by comparison.

I'll be hanging up my brushes for now until I get some more holidays, but I feel I made good progress with 43 models completed in about 4 months.

I just finished my exams yesterday, and I'm trying to get back into the swing of painting with this lil guy as a warm up.
He's the first mini completed from my copy of Etherfields which arrived a couple weeks ago. I have it on good authority that his briefcase is filled with crackers.
Hopefully I can get at least a couple of the playable characters done before I start playing.

I'm glad you like him, it's nice to be back with you slowly chipping away at the ever-growing backlog.

With that in mind, here is the first player character from the game, the Gambler.
I don't know if I'll really play as her much since her playstyle is more luck-based, but I love the model.
This is just her first form since every character has an upgraded "lucid" form. The only thing I didn't pledge for is the art book since it isn't coming until wave 2 which makes it pretty much useless as a painting guide.

That Knight is feckin awesome! Great work, particularly for such a large model. I like the skin tones you’ve achieved on your recent ‘human’ figures, and the various monsters in general are very nicely done. Great stuff! Like the wee leaves on some bases too..

Thanks so much for all the positive feedback Ragsta. It's especially nice to hear about the Knight Asterius since he was a long project that seemingly went mostly unnoticed. The skin tones are a pretty simple recipe so I'm pleased they're going over well. It's just Shadow Flesh, Tan Flesh, and then Olive Flesh from Pro Acryl/ Monument Hobbies.
I've got lots more cool monsters in the pipeline. I'll post a shot of what I've built of the Canuckimera so far next time, but the big stuff, like the King of Malifica – Resplendent will have to wait until I have more time this summer.

For now here are a couple of quick ones to make the dreamscape less grey, some possessed furniture or mimics if you prefer.
I'm also currently working on my next player character and am almost done reading all the instructions.

Wow, these are some awesome minis, and your paintwork really does them justice. The blue cloak on the spooky seance drawer is brilliant, and the eyes on the Gambler show great brush control - very jealous!

Can't get over the penguin either...

Great work - thanks for sharing!

Thanks inmygravenimage. There are a lot of cool mini's in the game, but he's one of my favorites (along with the business penguin of course).

Welcome tzurk, I'm flattered to receive so many compliments at once. I do what I can so anytime my work stands out to someone is fantastic. My trick for the eyes is using a fine tip "artist's" pen. It's still tricky to get right, but it works more often than without it.

With that being said, I'm not sure if the eyes on my follow up player character, the Reaper, came out quite as good, but they look okay in person. She also has a little blot on her one thigh that I had to fix as well as her one arm, but hopefully you get the idea. She came as the optional 5th player expansion, but I only got her because of a bundle since I mostly play solo.

I even got to play the introduction scenario yesterday which was pretty fun. I'll try and get some pictures of my session next time.
The second model, Mr Boxman, is pretty lackluster, but was quick to paint up.
I also included what I have so far of the Canuckimera as promised. He'll probably be the only non-Etherfields mini I'll have time for on my break.

In theory it shouldn't take me that much longer to finish the Canuckimera, but I couldn't resist showing off my work in progress so so far. This model was probably almost a decade from the original concept to now being in my hands, and as a Canadian it's one of favorites.

He came with the option for either wings or additional horns, but I'm going with the latter since the wings just look like a touch too much going on. I've only seen a few examples of him fully painted, but I think I'm the first to give the goose tail his true Canadian black and white coloring.
I haven't started the smaller beaver arms/wings yet as I'm still considering what color to use. A goose's wings are a mix of browns, but I want something more contrasted to the brown of the main body.

I finished sooner than expected so here he is along with what eventually be he sidekick that I got for preordering, the Beaver of the Dammed.
One last thing I forgot to do before photographing is sprinkle a bit of those miniature leaves on the base.
I'll also try to add a shot for scale later on. He's big enough, but not that big.

I'm sad to say that this little guy is most likely going to be the final model I complete until summer eventually arrives once more.
He's just a minor enemy from Etherfields, one of the many shapeshifters that are placeholders for anything that isn't a named monster.

In the meantime I should be receiving my copies of both Middara Wave 1 and Tainted Grail Wave 2 in about a couple months so once again my backlog keeps growing to the point of approaching painting paralysis. Nevertheless there's a lot to look forward to assuming the world doesn't end before I get the chance to get to it.

I'm glad to be finished with my semester once more, just one final class left to go.
At the moment I'm relaxing for a bit since my sister has yet to clear her painting off the main table. She does canvas painting during my studies. Still I couldn't resist partially building what will possibly be my first project of spring/summer.

It's the biggest of the four 75mm scale resins I got from the Limbo: Saga of Noadin kickstarter, Ylva.
I've never painted a 75mm before and this seemed like a good one to try.
Pictured with Ghost the dire wolf and my Master of Possessions for comparison.
