All is dust. And awesome freehand.

Thousand Sons look fantastic. And that GS work is sweet! Nice and gross with great textures.

Didnt get much painting done last night, but did pound through some solid work on the Heldrake base. For some reason I decided to double-down on the bread tag work and ahhh... let's just say my fat fingers are wishing I'd chosen an easier path lol

Fancy tile work , though I don’t fancy doing the triabgle pieces around the building... maybe some debris to cover them and a bomb hole to cover the rest of the base?

This blog is fantastic and I need to keep a closer eye on it. I've missed a lot since page 1!

There is some really excellent greenstuff work and the freehand is excellent, and on so many models, not just the "special" ones!

Keep up the good work!

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

Thanks guys

Gobert - I did some covering up work with a metal ramp walkway (for those servitors with wheels) and scattered some debris around - I think i've done a reasonable balance so far. Once its painted, if there is something I think needs to be changed, I'll think about adding some additional details (like a large rug lol).

Thanks Fifty - I do appreciate the kind words

Last night I got the rest of the way through building the base - back to the heldrake painting tonight!







Let me know what you think

Ugh, been busy busy at work at the moment - meaning I'm behind on my posting. I am not however, behind on my painting.

Progressed the heldrake and undercoated the base: - here's some WiPs:











I also took my two kids (7 & 9) to a Warhammer store to get a free Witch Aelf and do some painting. The witch Aelf was tough to build and would have taken ages to get ready, so the kids painted some free space marines instead

This is from Ms 7:



And this is Mr 9:



And some of my Witch Aelf progress pics:







This is the first model where my attempts at wet blending seems to be working (i.e. her boot) - so that's encouraging.

Cheers

Fun times with free minis. And a tip of the hat to getting the kids painting. I am not quite there yet. However, I did the same thing this weekend and they have a Marine and a Stormcast waiting for them. My Witch Elf came assembled. And not done so with an abundance of care. So if I get around to painting her I will first be removing mold lines, sprue nubs and glue strands/patches. But hey, FREE! Yours is looking good.

I only restarted painting myself this year when the kids were complaining about being bored at the start of lockdown in South Australia and I dredged up a bunch of unpainted minis. I got them to do some base coating to start with (they basecoated the Berzerkers i posted early in the blog) before I assembled some spare marines and other excess models (I had some necromunda orlocks and a bunch of mordheim models a friend left with me). The lad just got the recruit edition and is working through his necrons at the moment.

Its good fun getting them involved

Good work getting the kids involved they did well! Your wet blending isn’t bad either . The Helldrake is looking good so far, the base has come together really well!

Cheers Gobert - the kids had a great time the wet blending seemed to be failing every time I paint on the model until suddenly it worked for some reason? Happy with the results regardless

Speaking of results, I consider the Witch Aelf done! let me know what you think













here's a larger version of the the leg shot - I think it best shows the wet-blending I attempted (from purple to brighter red).

Love the warm flesh and cool hair on the witch elf. Blending looks great, well done!

Good job to both the kids as well - both produced solid results! Can't wait til mine are old enough to slap some paint on dad's army men.

Can't wait to see more of the heldrake - both base and mini are looking aces.

Thanks for sharing!

That’s some fancy transitioning! Did you blend the highlights on the armour too? They looks to have a nice transition too. Her hair looks great, nice and icy to offset the red/purple.

Cheers mate - getting the kids involved is awesome. Its the accumulation of careful indoctrination in my nerdy interests over many years

And thanks again the highlights were not exactly wet blended, but they were really lightly applied with watered down bright red and orange (not quite glazes). required a lot of coats, but it dried almost instantly so was more repetitive than time consuming.

I've been hazard striping more, but dont have any updated photos yet. I did play a bit with the base - enough to put down a rough coat of bone on the floor and dry brush the pavement:



I'm very happy with the way the cracks in the concrete are showing up. getting those into each bread-tag paver That process involved me sharpening a super cheap clay modelling tool (kinda like a woodworker's pointed hook knife) and gouging lines and cracks into it.

Cheers

Thanks! Technically yes I carved these... keeping in mind that I'm using "carved" in the sense I gouged lines in little plastic rectangles with a sharp bit of metal

The base is already looking fab, the cracked pavers are great. It’s inspiring me to customise some of the Sector Imperialis bases I have with bits from the kitchen! Good luck with the hazard striping!

Quick update - the hazard stripes continue at their traditional slow pace (getting them looking straight on those uneven wings... sigh). I find I'm spending more time on the base than the heldrake itself - Every night spent striping needs two doing something else

So - base update:







And some close ups:





Cheers

Lol! Not content with stripes you’ve gone for chequers as well on the base! It’s looking great, and I’m super impressed that you’ve put the effort in to highlight the tiles. Will they be getting some dirt? They look a bit bright to be in a destroyed building

Too clean for a ruined building? I think you're failing to account for the sheer power and tenacity of modern Imperial cleaning servitors!



Kidding - the base got its first layer of grime with Agrax and some painted on cracks.









(these are effectively the same pics but taken in different places as I see what lighting works better).

NEXT UP - weathering powders and then the scary bit (attaching the stand).

Thanks guys - the base is finished! I have attached the stand now (carefully scrapped off some of the paint and then glued it down) but I havent taken photos of it yet.

Normally I disable voting on WiPs, but as the base is properly finished, I thought I'd leave it open and see what the reactions are

The last layer of weathering was done with weathering powders:


'Full shots'







'Focus shots'
Pipe work: (broken bic pens, lollypop sticks etc)


Robed statue painting:


Lamp & OSL

Hey all - thanks for the kind words about the base

I've attached the clear plastic stand now, happy that I managed this without causing any unnecessary damage. That said - I am glad I took some photos before attaching it.




I've also been progressing a little freehand pattern down the iron parts:




and worked on some of the fleshy parts - I'm really happy with how this worked out, particuarly as I was pretty much making it up as I went along I reckon it looks unpleasant enough to be daemon skin.

Yeah, that skin looks nicely unhealthy, and the stripes and trim are as ever, excellent.

The freehand and skin came out great. It certainly looks daemonic and not too happy about all the metalwork.
