I really like the texture as it is now, but agree that a bit more white could be a good thing. Just at the highest points, maybe?

Looking good, definitely look suitably icy. A few dots of white on the brightest spots could really sell the effect, but I wouldn't overdo it as that'd end up more frost than ice, I think.

I think I’m going to hold off until I drop some snow on these guys before I decide if they need more white. I think the white from the snow may just push it far enough.

As above, I think the snow might do it, the humanoid guys are about Orc size in AOS, so there’s not really large spots to dot.

In other news....Christmas shopping happened , even though I wasn’t going to spend “hobby money” because of Christmas, I stopped by Miniaturemarket. They had in store deals that were really great, but I don’t have that sort of free money right now. What sort of deals? Ork apocalypse boxes 1/2 price. Asoiaf starter boxes for $70 . Lots of other things half price as well, just not at the right time for me.

What I did get.....

Army Painter battlefield snow and Blacksuit Superman ($4), they had two, but I only grabbed one...or so I thought until I opened the baggie and there was a second body in the bag . Future Doomsday base decoration.

Also pictured are 20 paintbrushes I got from Wish.com for $2, about to give them a go.

Man, that ASOIAF starter for $70 is a steal, there are nigh on 100 miniatures in that set. Just a shame that the funds were not available to you, not that you (or any of us) need both more miniatures and another game system.

Am interested to hear how your new brushes go.

It's even (Black Suit) on the game card...

They couldn't come up with something catchy or flavorful like "Reborn" or "Ressurected" or "Mullet n' Guns." "Black Suiterman", maybe?

Nice bonus with the spare body. Look forward to seeing what you do with him, and what a deal at $4.

Hah, that's nothing compared to things like 'Batrman (Ben Affleck)' or 'Flash (TV Show)'.. Certainly not the most imaginative Namers Of Things over at Knight!

Steal at 4 bucks though, even without the extra body! Looking forward to seeing him done.

I know, $70 for 93 minis, how could I pass them up.....well. I don’t NEED another system. Plus the same money could go for more of what I want to paint up.

Oh it’ll be a while before he gets done, but yeah, names are bad from KM. I’m going to chalk it up to “lost in translation” issues.

Yep, down powered supes doesn’t really compete unless your trying some sort of story mode game.

So couldn’t sleep when I got home and fiddled around with a glue stick. I tried this a while back and turned out okay, wanted to add a few steps to see if I could get some better results. Plus played with the snow from army painter.

Clearish gluestick (mini size) shaved randomly with a hobby knife.
Coated with contrast Aethermatic Blue. Sprinkled with army painter snow effect.
After it dried I added Drakenhof Nightshade wash.
After that dried I dry brushed with Chronus Blue.
Drybrushed with Praxeti white.
Fine lined in some asurman blue lines in the center of flat panels.
Fine lined in some ceramics white in center panels
Edged sharp parts with ceramite white.
I think this is my best work even though the ice isn’t overall more blue than white I like the effect a lot.

Oh and it’s translucent when held up to the light.

Hard to get a picture, and while translucent it really is more opaque when not directly up against a light source.

I have another cluster of these spikes drying right now to try this again.

Edit: like 5 minutes from dried drakenhof nightshade to completed. Base still needs some more touch up, but spear done.

Thanks CB, more wrote it down for myself. I keep forgetting to document stuff and then later try and duplicate it to no success. Hopefully it works for others as well.

Thanks Dad , oh and for Christmas I want the Batman 3rd edition game. I know I haven’t been great, but I can make my own lump of coal now .

Very little sleep last night, want to try this in red... but have to get dinner started before I go painting anything else. Might also give green a shot, need some Kryptonite objectives I think.

I hope it will, but the contrast paint I have is militarum green, I think I need a brighter green to work it out right.

This project is giving me all sorts of ideas. So the green I started is too dark for a nice gemstone I think. I’ll still do it and try for a dark emerald instead of a bright green.

At the same time I started an orange one to possibly do lava type bases. Though now that I’m thinking about it I might go nuts and try a grey, a black and a white version of these .
But the orange is getting some other base treatments to see how they look.

Very promising to me.
Oh and with light behind it.


Me likey .

Purple I would probably just buy a piece of amythyst, cheap enough and slightly more realistic.

Quick one as I’m at doctors office with daughter (sickie)

Got a Kai Wolverine off of WISH.com for $0.75 shipped.
Also picked up ice troll and yellow dry paint from GW this week.

Also found bits to scavenge for future terrain.

3”x7” clear tray with textures out the wazoo. I have a few ideas and found 5 of these.

Orange crystal with me playing around with basing stuff applied.



Other colored crystals. Militarum green base, apothecary white base and Black Templar bass

Thanks Shaso, he is huge, Titan sized in fact. He will be holding up my Wolverine drawing.

Jim Lee’s first drawing of Wolverine from when he lived in Saint Louis before working at Marvel. He shopped at a local comic shop a friend worked at who knew he was a great artist and asked him to draw wolverine. I have a notarized letter with it showing This was his first drawing of Wolverine, so it’s truly the jewel in my collection.

That is a seriously cool piece of memorabilia!

Crystals look really neat, they'd be perfect for objective markers as well as bases, could be anything from crystalline magic to space rocks to power crystals or what have you. Some white ones could make a neat Fortress of Solitude base for Supermullet as well.

Thanks Paradigm, I’m glad they’ve worked out, I’m thinking of stuff for a table in the future and multibasing for KOW3 possibilities.

Well I never got into the Bones kickstarters, so i entertain myself by looking through all of the figs at the LGS. Lately I’ve been picking a few up and painting them for fun. Since I’m painting icey stuff the Ice troll seemed logical, but I didn’t want to paint him as made of ice like the CMON figs I’ve been doing. Instead he is just going to be a cool green with ice on his back. Still WIP, but I think one of the better skins I’ve done in many years. Might be because I did so many freaking layers with him. Still not done by a long shot, but the ice crystal I need his hands still matched the hot glue ones I’ve done even thought it’s not translucent.


Thanks for looking. It’s my weekend to work, so off to the grind .

I hope to one day make it to a show where Jim Lee is at, just to get a picture of the three of us together.

Soooooo.......

Maybe I e been watching too many episodes of the show Fringe on IMDB, but I decided to cross universes. No Cortexiphan to get me there, so I have to do it the old fashioned way...with $$$$.



Was at miniature market and they had a bald with a dent on the back, so 40% off. Originally didn’t like the idea of the 40mm scale, but then while looking at scale sizes it’s basically O scale train size, which means cheaper terrain available in kits or prebuilt.

Yeah, a couple of those would be nice. The models I’d love to get would be based of John Byrne’s Next Men, though they mostly were humans with powers. But JB is my favorite artist/writer of comics, and we have the same birthday, just a few decades apart.

, might try that out, so far the assembly is smooth, though only done the terrain so far.

aku-chan wrote:Lovely skin on the big troll guy.

Thanks Aku-Chan, unfortunately the skin has gotten much lighter. Not sure if it’s because it was an old bones white model or just a lighting thing when I took the picture, but when I painted it, it felt darker . More pics later of him to show difference.

So I wasn’t going to start assembly of the marvel stuff right away.......

The website said 9 pieces of terrain. I guess they don’t count the trash can. One of the reasons I didn’t think the box was worth it was that all the content pics I saw only had the 10 figures in it, and the Daily Bugle and other terrain was shown off with the terrain pack. Bad marketing there as the box comes with all this shown. Once again the trash can I see not listed on the back of the box. Cars can be assembled without the taxi sign, but I went ahead and attached them to both, it I should a major metropolitan area after all.

Also while waiting for glue to dry I messed around with an old dreadnought base.

I think the ice effect really is working amongst all sorts of models.
