I appreciate such high praise. I'm glad you like her as much as I do, but I think you'll enjoy this next one as well since you've worked with knight models before.

It's none other than the bewitching Poison Ivy herself. I've had her friend, Frank, done for a long time, but I've been too intimidated to work on such tiny detail.
I've recently bought a few 3d printed models off of Etsy which includes a much bigger 100mm version of her so I figured I should finally tackle this one beforehand.

I still have the 3 smaller plant minions from the Frank kit left to work on, but if I manage to finish them without moving on to something else I'll be sure to post a group shot of the whole floral family.

I also still have Killer Croc, Harley Quinn with her hyena pets, and the Health Ledger Joker with his crew to work on at some point, but I don't if I'll ever bother with the exceedingly miniscule Mad Hatter.

Nice to hear she meets your approval.

As promised here is the whole gang together. The flowers are nothing that special, but they help complete the look with a bit of a scenic touch.
The gravel on Frank's base was from before I bought the sand, but I guess I had to use it anyway because his base is entirely some kind of cobble stone.

We'll see what the next project ends up being. I was considering finally working on one of my favorites from Cthulhu: Death May Die, the Dimensional Shambler, or maybe Killer Croc to go along with Poison Ivy.

Thanks again, I did look into getting Kite Man at one point, but the last couple orders I had from Knight Models ended up getting hit with customs charges so I probably won't be picking up anymore.
I do love the Harley Quinn tv series though. Season 3 sure is taking forever to come out.

I hesitated to post this next project since it's a bit scandalous, but my Lady of Anguish had a similar look so I figured it should be okay.
She is the first of a 3 woman Mechanic Adept Eradicator squad, another unit from Wargame Exclusive.
I also have their Tech Priest Domina leader half built as well as a standard gw Tech Priest Dominus to get to at some point.

That's nice of you to say. I'm always pleased to keep you coming back for more, and possibly throw in some surprises along the way.

I just received another one of the 3d prints I ordered from a different Etsy seller and was pretty disappointed with the quality unfortunately. I should have held off before ordering the others, but here's hoping they turn out better when I get them next week.

For now here is Eradicator # 2 out of 3.

Anytime I succeed in bringing out the HR Geiger-ness of something I consider that a win so thanks for saying so. If you like the models, but prefer a more conservative look the Wargame Exclusive has an alternate version labeled as "sealed" where they have wrappings around their chests instead.

Here is the 3rd member to complete the squad as well as a group shot.
I'd like to get their Domina leader done to go along with them, but it could be a pain to get all her servo arms and skulls attached properly. I hate using super glue for small stuff since most of the time the only thing it succeeds in gluing is my fingers.

It's been a long time since I've had anything to post. I've been distracted since I went on a bit of a movie and tv series shopping spree and just recently I received some pretty infuriating personal news that left me in no mood for artistic pursuits.

At long last here is a bit of progress in the form of a random bust from Etsy I've had for a year or two. I don't think it's available anymore and I don't even remember what it's called, but it seems to be some sort of forest nymph.

I might manage to work on something small for the time being, but I'm actually holding off on starting on any serious projects because with any luck I'll finally be receiving my copy of Oathsworn in the next 2-4 weeks, and that will definitely take priority.

I'm excited to be back with my copy of Oathsworn now in hand. Here is the first player character I've got done, the A'Dendri Ranger, which is basically a tree person.
It's the first time I've ever strung a mini's bow which came out a little bit wonky, but I figured it was as close as I was going to get.

Now if I can get 3 more characters and the first boss finished, which is a giant rat with a swarm of baby rats, I'll be ready to try out a game or two. I skipped the terrain and armory expansions, but I did get the metal coins and mystery box. I won't spoil the latter, other than to say it's not at all gameplay related.

Note: I will however be posting pictures of all the enemy models once I finish them. The company has made it seem, completely unnecessarily imo, that the encounters are supposed to be giant secrets until the moment you play them so if you don't want "spoilers" then keep that in mind.

Personally I think it's utter nonsense to buy a game without knowing what you're buying so I didn't hesitate to look at what all the encounters were since the very first day of the kickstarter campaign.

Thanks a lot inmygravenimage. She was a fun one to paint, and if you haven't heard of Oathsworn there should be a lot to enjoy with what's coming down the pipe.

I forgot to mention that all the Oathsworn models are a bigger scale than usual, probably 40 or 45 mm so it helps get at the details a bit easier. That also means that a lot of the bigger enemies are on 100 mm bases so they're pretty massive.

I actually would have posted this next one a couple days ago, but my internet was gone the last couple of days thanks to our subpar provider. In fact, I already have the following party member half done now.

For the moment here is the Penitent. I went back and added markings to the wrappings on his wrist to match the rest, and cleaned up a couple areas on his shield where the ink had pooled, but that's pretty much him as pictured.
I probably should stuck with the same autumn leaves for his base, but I use them sparingly since I think they have since been replaced by a slightly different product after I got them.
I haven't looked into the rules that much yet, but I know that his specialty is that he hits harder as he gets more and more wounded.

I also made an unexpected purchase that should be arriving any minute now.
I had just been watching my new 4k collector's edition of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and I was pleased with how well it stills holds up after not having watched it for almost a decade.
That combined with the recent news that the Middle Earth strategy game will be getting a new starter set as well as battle host boxes soon convinced me to dive into the game for the first time ever with the Battle of Pelennor fields while I still could.
I really hope GW will eventually release the new Gothmog as a separate kit at some point.

The minis are super old, but I wanted the Witch King on fell beast, and I figured for 2.5 times his price I might as well get the whole set. I also liked the idea of painting up some of the Warriors of the Dead which are otherwise out of stock here. I'm not sure how painted the horses of Rohan will go, but there's already a lot to compete for my attention as it is.

Much appreciated, although he looks even better now that I've updated my basing process.

You can see what I mean in action for this next one, the Priest. I remembered I had some shrub like stuff that I probably haven't used since back on the very first models of my Chaos Marines, my Obliterators and old Plaguebearers. I think the two of them combined look much better than either one would individually.

His skin came out a bit pale because I'm starting to run out of my normal flesh colors, but other than that I'm quite pleased with him.
That just leaves one more party member left before I can move on to the first enemy, and both of them should be worth the wait as long as I can pull them off okay.

For now though I think I've earned a little break from Oathsworn since my Pelennor Fields box came literally minutes after my last post, and I'm itching to put together my Mordor Troll. The Fell Beast is cooler, but that's a much bigger project.

I also made one final purchase of the month to help complete the scene from the Return of the King since they were the last cool LotR kits my FLGS had, the King of the Dead and Eowyn with Merry.
To go along with it I added a pot of Hexwraith Flame to work on the ghost warriors with. I wasn't sure whether the technical version or the contrast version would work better, but I ended up going with the technical.

Thanks for the favorable comparison. I had to look up the reference since I don't watch Marvel stuff, but now I can see the resemblance.

This next one went fairly quickly since it's pretty simply designed, but I think you'll like her. It's the Ursus War Bear which is pretty much impossible to resist including in any party.

At first I made the fur to purely white, but I like it better now that I went back with some more Ushabti Bone so hopefully that reads well from the pictures.

With that I'm proud to announce that this finishes off my starting Oathsworn, at least for now. I've included a group shot to help set the scene a bit.

It will probably be a while before my next update because the first encounter is a huge one, unless I start working on my Lord of the Rings stuff, but now that I'm so close to being table ready I can't not continue with it.

I'm back sooner than expected with the finished first encounter, the Broodmother.
I've included a couple shots with both a marine and an Oathsworn mini for scale to try and demonstrate her massiveness.
The tail made for a bit of a challenge to reach her underbelly with a brush.

Now I just have to paint her accompanying swarm consisting of 12 little rats which aid her and get back to reading the rules before I'll finally be ready to try out the first chapter of the game.

Hi Kid Kyoto, that's very kind of you to say. I think the model is almost the size of a real rat which can be disconcerting. It's always nice to see a new face turn up, and I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of attracting a mod's notice.
 inmygravenimage wrote:
Blarg. Nice job.
Thanks again inmygravenimage. He went rather quickly since so much of his surface area is just drybrushing, but I'm glad to hear he turned out okay.

Now to accompany her here is the accompanying swarm of baby rats she summons throughout the battle. There's not a whole lot to them, but I did mix it up a bit with several different shades.
I'm almost done reading the rules too, but it turns out that the adventuring party starts off with 4 NPC allies so I'll try and get some of them done as well. I'm so close, but I am also kind of itching to get to paint something other than Oathsworn despite the fact that it in itself contains a huge amount of variety. There's just so many choices to pick from.

Normally around this time I'd be preparing to head back to school for the fall semester, but not only did I finally graduate in April, I actually managed a perfect grade of 100 on my final course that centered around putting everything into practice.

So even though I don't have to suddenly cut my painting time short, I'm happy to report that it has been my most productive summer I've ever had since I started keeping track. I've completed 48 models in 4.5 months, 28 of which were all different sculpts.

As a side note I'm STILL waiting on my wave 2 of Etherfields to arrive. Pretty much every country other than Canada has already been delivered, but ours were the only ones stuck in the Chinese lockdown while waiting to be loaded on the ship for a couple months. Now it's been stuck waiting to dock in the Vancouver port for about the same amount of time as it took to cross the ocean in the first place .

Glad to see you like her too Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll. With the obvious exception of inmygravenimage, you might be my second biggest supporter.

Now for something totally different. This one is literally my first official Games Workshop model since my giant Acastus Knight 2 years ago almost to the exact day. I got as far as building and undercoating my Great Unclean One, Glottkin, and even my Tech Priest Dominus, but none of them have gotten any paint whatsoever applied yet.

So without further ado, I present my first Lord of the Rings mini, the Mordor Troll from the Battle of Pelennor Fields box.
I'm fairly pleased with how he turned out.
The severed heads hanging from his belt turned out kind of like orc heads, but I figured if I painted them a normal flesh tone they would just blend in too much. I guess he might have killed a few orcs who looked at him the wrong way.

Speaking of which I had an odd occurrence when I opened up my King of the Dead box. I got a double of the same sprue instead the actual King sprue, but the FLGS I got it from was nice enough to ship me a replacement sprue super quick. So now I actually have 3 Heralds instead of 2 which is more than anyone really needs, but still a bonus.

I'll probably go back to Oathsworn for a while so I don't know when I'll get to the rest, but it's a start at least.

Much appreciated to you both, I'm happy to hear that this first foray of mine into the realm of Tolkien was a success, and I never tire of seeing all the feedback.
I've always felt an affinity towards trolls since the old metal stone trolls were literally my first warhammer minis I ever bought, which I have still kept to this day. I even have 6 of the new plastic Rockgut Trolls as well as a Mirebrute Troggoth to paint up if I ever get to them.

I'm looking forward to maybe moving on to the Warriors of the Dead once I get a few games of Oathsworn to the table, and with that in mind here is the first of my 4 ally NPC's.

I think there is a bit of room for improvement for the others if I take a bit of a slower approach, but nevertheless I should be able to try out my first game sometime next week with any luck.

Hi sennacherib, welcome to my blog and thanks for commenting. I used gloss varnish for everything in my Death Guard army, but I grew pretty dissatisfied with how much it muddled both the detail and colors.
I switched to Army Painter matte varnish shortly after starting to paint my Middara stuff, but with very few exceptions I always varnish AFTER taking the pictures.

Today was a pretty productive day. Not only did I finish my last 3 Oathsworn allies, but as a side note I also finished Book 5 of the fantasy novels series I've been reading, the Runelords.
It's a pretty old series, but if you're into that genre I'd highly recommend it.

So here they are along with a group shot. I tried painting the one with the polearm's quilted armor completely manually thinking it look better, but it turns out the drybrushing was both faster and a nicer result imo.
Also I know one of their swords is bent, but even if I could straighten it the plastic tray that holds it isn't really a good shape so it probably just bend back anyway.
This means I am finally ready to start playing. Now I just have to get everything set up and somehow manage to survive my encounter with the Broodmother.

That's kind of you to say considering most of the time my metals are just leadbelcher with a couple coats of either nuln oil, agrax earthshade, or a combo.
In fact the ally with the polearm has an unsightly spot on the blade where the ink pooled rather badly. I did go back and fix it, but neglected to retake the picture in this case. Sometimes I'll highlight with a brighter shade of silver, but my selection of gold/bronze colors are a bit more respectable.

Now that I have enough painted to try out chapter 1 of Oathsworn, I'm taking a break to work on some more of my Lord of the Rings. I did get everything unpacked and mostly setup last night, but it took so long I didn't have the energy to actually get past the first paragraph.

Anyway these guys are the first of my Warriors of the Dead unit from the good side of the Battle of Pelennor Fields set. It's a unit of 20 so I still have a ways to go, but it's a pretty simple color scheme. It doesn't really make sense that the metals aren't a ghostly green too, but I felt it needed a little something to break it up.

I was originally going with Steel Legion Drab for the sides of the bases, but it just blended in with the sand I went with. I also intend to put some tufts of grass on the bases, but I only have one little pack so I have to get a bunch more at some point.

The Mordor Troll I already finished had black gravel, which apparently is actually crushed glass, but I changed my mind and scraped it off since I want both armies to match so it looks like they're part of the same battlefield.
