Time to introduce you to the individuals in my Goliath gang! they are NOT finished yet but at least getting to the point where you can see what sort of look i'm going for dirty hi-vis coveralls with faded worn areas on the knees etc. and still sporting the reflective patches for when they're working in those filthy rust mines scraping the filings off the pinions holding the spires together .

My big plan is to add tattoos as an experiment on most of them, it's going to be hard because I love the look of painted skin maybe I just won't go as overboard as I thought I would.

only one has an actual name so far. but I can't work out which one is going to get it

Really nice work, Nerdy. The Massive Darkness stuff looks amazing - especially liking the highlights on the Stone Elemental! Goliaths are coming along really nicely as well, and the worker's flouro is inspired!

Thank you gentlemen, I shall endeavor to get more done at my earliest convenience! they are fun to paint but as usual I felt the need to build them with slight modifications when it came to their visage and now I need to find a nice new brush somewhere to get them finished :-)

Just came across your work and wow. Had a couple questions about your minotaurs? I find it hilarious that I picked the same martian ironearth for the bases.... but are you still doing your minotaur armor the same as in your youtube video here?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5Ci4LFHO4g

And how do you do your reds?

Hey nintura, you bet I still do my Minotaurs the same as my video just haven't worked on them much lately and my reds, people really seem to like my reds! I have tried to get a video for it but it never shows the colours how I want to, I'll write you up a small tutorial with the colours I use when I get a chance if you'd like?

but until then I can show a couple more finished miniatures

3 more of Whaley's horde finished up, the two warrior women really didn't photograph well while they're not as good as the Hellephant they're a little better than shown but hey! at least the Hellephant looks good! he was the model that encouraged me to pester Whaley until he agreed for me to paint them all

Yes sir, that would be great. I'm trying to refine the wash method and get used to it. They still come out a bit splotchy in the end and I think it's due to adding to much Sepia at once. And I think on this latest batch I did them too dark? A second wash did not seem enough but a third made them too dark once I got them outside. So not sure

Firstly Nintura, please feel free to post your progress on here so we can have a look without seeing how you're going i'd only suggest that for the sepia you might use less for the subsequent coats and really push it around, it might not feel like you're washing the model as much but trust me even a light coat does change the colour.

and secondly I've finished another model for Whaley! i'm calling this the Chaos spawn as it looks amazingly perfect for what a spawn should be in my mind. very twisted and fleshy, I wanted to do it 'dry' so it was obviously a twisted creature with some wet parts. I really like how it turned out hence it didn't take me long to finish because I enjoyed painting it and wanted to keep going with my vision of how it looks.








And here are the next three i'm working on, not sure about the tentacle beast but I think I want to do eyes on him on those boils?

Wonderful work damo. That spawn is really top notch. I'd say eyes... definitely eyes.

Thanks Gits, I'm gonna do eyes! I can see (get it) how it will look and it will give a good chance to play around with doing them so they look good/real :-)

The Overseer was designed so that those were all eyes to begin with, so I'd definitely go for that

Technically the Chaos Spawn/Nightmare Thing was covered in eyes too, but you've really made it your own by painting them as boils; I love it

The spawn actually was doing my head in. It is so beautifully outrageous I was having a hard time figuring out what I was looking at, But I guess that means you hit the brief of a spawn right on. Good work.

Here you go. First model tested. I find it hilarious we both picked the Martian Ironearth for the base, but I did borrow your purple This one I feel I did too much on the scratching because the lamp I used didnt show it as well.

All looking good Nerdy, but I have to chime in on the spawn also. That thing is a nightmare in the best of ways to me it looks like things are writhing about under its skin, shiver.
