Thanks zahnib! Still don't like it, but I like that other people like it. That's enough like for one sentence

Bit of radio silence here, used up my hobby space to sort my movie collection and than the motivation waned a bit. Got slowly back into the swing of things, but first *drumroll* my foothill of embarrassment (not enough for a pile of shame):





Pretty manageable. Wanna try and get the MCP, Sisters and Cursed City/Warcry stuff painted. Of course, I already bought some more Marvel and the two AoS Witch Hunters, but those and some of the Cursed City minis gonna go on square bases and do double duty in Mordheim.

On the painting front this guy got me started again. Spray white, use Contrast, mini practically done I corrected the staff today and need to finish his base. Other than that I'm very happy with this look.



He's tiny, but should paint up quickly too. Glad the eyes worked out, hope I don't ruin them when painting the other colors of his fur in the face.



He is Groot. Kept it simple with drybrushes over Contrast.



Mostly Contrast, just some Dark Reaper on the black and Stormshield over the whole mini. Not entirely happy with the flesh on the mouth, but good enough for gaming.



And this weekend I need to visit all your plogs, been away too long.

That's your 'pile of shame'? It looks like the start of a couple of small projects to me

At least there's a reasonable chance of completing that lot.

Groot and Rocket looking good, Moonknight is very cool

Thanks gobert! It was quite liberating taking stock. I also sold a bunch of stuff last year, sometimes still in boxes, because it made me somewhat anxious. I'm not predisposed to amass stuff

Thanks zahnib! I'm not entirely certain if I came up with that or more likely read it here on Dakka somewhere But I love that phrase.

Some little update (and more in the pipeline).

Latest shots of Venom and Moon Knight finished. I realized to late, that the wind is blowing the other way so the comic on the Moon Knight base shouldn't be in that position. Ah well... And contemplated putting blood akin to the stick on his suit, but git scared And it's a magic suit so probably self-cleaning




Really happy with the Dark Reaper accents on Venom. Makes him look a bit like the 90's comics colors





And some WIP, gotta love Contrast. Thor will get some highlighting with normal colors, but only Contrasts is already working well.




And I started a new project (although painting is a bit off). New Mordheim warband, Vampire Hunters. Luckily only needed to buy the ven Densts, all other minis were already at hand.

The complete warband


Vampire Hunter leader and Priest of Morr (because he is called Octren in Cursed City I couldn't resist and he will travel the streets of Mordheim as Ogden Wernstrom )


Three Slayers


Four Pilgrims (the arms I had left weren't ideal for posing)


The Villagers (the story is that the priest revives the vampire's victims and let's them fight as zombies)


And the wolfhounds

The beast! Funny how some marvel characters (many in fact) are just meh to me but every now and then I have a surprising reaction to one I never thought I was such a big fan of. Turns out I’m a beast fan. I think maybe because he always got the witty lines in the comics. Nice to see him again.

Thanks theCrowe! I love that this big hairy blue dude is swinging around while dropping wisdom (although I've read not much X-Men comics). He always slightly reminds me of the Discworld's librarian.

Thanks Maharg! They are just lovely to paint, because they are one and done Excited to look what you will do with them! And yeah, I don't like buildings, but they paint up quite nicely, if one musters the motivation... which I don't

Battle reports will take a bit. Our match this weekend was postponed, because of sickness all around Maybe weekend after next we'll play again.

And a small update, finished some more MCP minis, firstly Rocket and Groot:





Not super happy with the gun and OSL, but overall quite pleased.

And the God of Thunder, 80% Contrast paints:



Jenny and Bruce. Feel like Bruce needs another highlight, but my greens don't have the needed hue and I don't want to mix.



Finally finished Bob (he was 90% done last year) and of course Mr. Pool couldn't wait then:

Thanks Slinky! Yes, there is quite some ME stuff, but unfortunately the other three M are at the front of the prio list: Marvel, Mordheim, Moresisters But the new painting comp is "age before beauty" so I may try my hand at Gollum.

Theophony wrote:Bob and Deadpool look great as do Groot and Rocket.


Thanks Theo!

Here are the glamour shots of Hulk, Rocket and Groot for the painting comp:

"We got him cornered, that'll be an easy 50.000 credits from the Grandmaster!"
"I am Groot!"
"I don't care if he won over a hundred fights, those are rigged anyway."
"I am Groot."
"You're just a pessimist and of course he looks angry, because we'll have him bagged in 5 minutes, mark my words!"







And the next batch of WIPs:



Still to stupid to use Contrast skin colors, but gonna layer over them anyway. Sabretooth will get some highlighting on the fur, looks to similar to the yellow suit right now. Not in love with his character or sculpt, but contrast made painting him so far bearable Taskmasters cloak will get some "real" yellow on the cape once I've done the suit. That looks very splotchy at the moment. Viper gets some green highlights and Valkyrie is just standing there, because I was painting blond hair anyway

If I can keep that tempo up, I may be done with most of the Marvel minis sometime in March. Fingers crossed!

The only one out of those four that I am familiar with is Sabertooth and he looks really good. I do like contrast paint, especially when it is used in conjunction with other paints to help out.
