Onward to infection, hah! Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks! Brazen brass, nuln oil, more brazen brass, storm host silver and a 2nd nuln oil shade.

Thank you!

Managed to get the base coat and shade done on the sorcerer.

Stills needs plenty of detail work, but when he's done my pile of shame will be gone!

Thanks,

Eventually, I certainly will!

And here he is, the finished sorcerer! There's a lot I could have done better, I wasn't super into him, but I'm happy enough to say he's done.






So with that, the pile of shame has been vanquished! That's it, man. Shame over, man. Shame over! What the feth am I gonna do now?! What am I gonna do?!

Thanks,

Slick!! Love the vivid highlights -- they work well with the model, and set a suitably sorcerous mood.

Excellent work on the daemon prince. Love the gnarly pustules. Great work on the sorcerer. The purple coat is really well done - looks like a rich, regal velvet.

Ah, I thought the highlights on the purple were too thick. The grey and metal work look really good though, especially the backpack.

Yeah, the cloak didn't quite turn out the way I wanted. The main problem is that i used a contrast paint over the brushed on wraithbone, and it was a little splotchy. So the highlights actually covered up some of that, but then I couldn't go back to thin them out without redoing the whole thing. Learning experience for sure!

Thanks,

Do you have no shame!?!

Congrats on banishing the pile o’shame, must be a good feeling. You should buy a big box of minis to celebrate!

The sorcerer looks good to me, I think the bold highlights add a bit of glow. This seems to be a problem with the contrast paints that rework becomes quite challenging compared to standard layering.

Where do you go from here?

Sorcerer turned out great. I like that he gives off a "yeah, I cast spells, but also I cast PLASMA!" vibe.

Thanks! Yeah, contrast can be a little more difficult if you mess up. Real though, I learned that the spray cans are the way to go if you're using contrast!

I actually do still have a few projects I want to work on, they just aren't miniatures exactly. I'll post a few cryptic pictures when I feel like dragging out the paints again!

Hah, yeah I like idea of him shooting those unworthy of being killed by a spell! An army shot isn't a bad idea at all, I think I may have to do that this weekend.

No minis left, that must be a weird feeling. It's something I'm aiming for in the next one and a half years, good to know, that it is achievable in real life and not just a dream we all have

Sorcerer is looking cool, armour contrasts nicely with the cloak.

It is the weirdest feeling, but a good one!

Youwashock suggested an army shot, so here's everything I own that's painted.

Here it is, my Pile of Fame!

It's about 6,000 points of random chaos stuff


Pulled out some things I've been saving up to make some terrain out of. Haven't done too much technical scratch building, so I figure this will be good practice for some future projects I have in mind.


Didn't realize I had so many DIFFERENT kinds of cans, had to get them all sorted out.

Now to figure out what to do with that mess!

Really impressive pile o’fame, though I wouldn’t recommend piling them up! Cool background you’ve got too, very thematic! What are your ideas for all of the cans?

Lots of depth on the grey for that final guy. Normally grey looks so flat.

Agreed, super excited and inspired by the army shot. It also helps remind us of the dang scale of the Dreadhold that you painted up!

Also excited to see how the terrain turns out! I love seeing everybody's scratch-built pieces. It's such a great opportunity to let your creativity run wild because the stakes are so low - you can do anything to soup cans!

I really appreciate all the kind words about the "Pile of Fame." The encouragement along the way was much appreciated!

After taking a few weeks off, I started working on the next project, my Sector MeCANicus. I'm taking it slow as I haven't done much scratch built terrain before, so this first one is a proof of concept can.


I got to buy my ratcheting ork power Klaw to cut pvc pipe with, and spent way too much time marking out rivet locations on my paper. For anyone wondering, I used the card from a Kirkland Signature lasagna. Not bad, but better reheated the next day than right out of the oven.


Anyhoo, got it to this point, and now all I have to do is glue on each of those little rivets. I decided to use 2mm half rounds instead of trying to punch them out like some of you other nutters!

Can't wait to get paint on it and get started on the big industrial stuff....

Thanks,

A strong start to what sounds like a fun project. You're definitely a MeCAN-DOicus and I'm excited for your larger scale industrial stuff. Where's the base from?

Any special treatment of the PVC before painting?

Looking good so far, and you got to buy a new tool! Sticking down all of those rivets will be a lesson in sanity, but remember, you CAN do it! Sorry, I’ll get my coat!

Well I figure if I can paint that chaos dreadfort, this can't be that hard!

The base is 2mm foamed pvc I had laying around. I actually don't know if you need to do anything special to pvc before you paint it, guess we'll find out together. I'll just spray and pray!


Got all the rivets glued on, gonna get the sand down and hopefully basecoated today.

Thanks,

Meticulous work. A batch of these is going to look sweet. Priming should be good for the PVC. If you are terribly concerned, you can give it a swipe with fine grit sandpaper before spraying.

Eep, that was on me! I was just curious if you could use PVC as it was or if you had to treat it special. Thanks for yours and MegaDave's collective wisdom.

Youwashock, yeah a brown primer stuck to it just fine, no prep needed. I was pretty happy with how the rivets turned out.

Don Qui Hotep, looks like you can use pvc as is! I always just assume you can drown something in primer to make it work.


Got it basecoated, now I get to dirty it up! I'm thinking about making the pipe gray, just to change up the color. Any ideas?

That's solid. Adding a different color on the pipe or corrugated area sounds like a good idea. Have fun getting dirty.

Yep, already looking very industrial. With such a vibrant yellow I can almost hear it calling out for hazard stripes... then again I could almost see it just getting dirtied up lots and remaining mostly yellow. Could be a cool theme?
