Lets see if my hiatus can be made up with some finished models? I finished up Whaley's Ogres now, some sweet looking models and they all look either brutal or just plain nasty! really nice to paint for the most part, a few muddy details but nothing that distracts the acres of wonderful skin to paint! after these I've got another Admech Ironstrider to paint up and two more batches of models left from wave one of the Massive Darkness Whaley sent me.









right, now it's off to work for me and i'll get more paint tomorrow!

Thanks guys! my favorite are the last two and the two headed dude :-) they look solid and meaty and thug like! and now i'm on the next group of little goblin guys I've realised that one of the
'Ogres' was meant to be a Goblin *duh Damo* so now do I continue on with them with flesh tones and green ripped robes or change it up to have the rest a pale green? hmmmm

So the other week I was in Bunnings looking for a cheap primer for buildings, I found a lime/olive green that was suitable for plastics as well so I then liberally coated everything I had in it to have a cohesive look, these pics are just a look at where I am at with them all, so far I have sprayed them all the lime primer and a few squirts of goblin green and silver primer then sponged on some black. After that I mixed up a wash with brown/red/and black acrylic paints and a lot of water and gave them all a good ol washing and let them dry.

Next I'll drybrush some lighter greens and sponge on some more chips, then weather and detail them all so they match into the board better. not sure when I'll work on them again but I thought i'd give you a look at how I want the board to look like a settlement.

I think you've made excellent decisions so far Nerdy. It's natural that they'd use local building materials so the fact that the buildings mirror (to an extent) the color scheme of the board is perfect in my opinion.

Hey Archer, that entire board only took me about 2.5 hours start to finish! yes, it really is that simple! I think i've got a run down in my old blog i'll try find it and link it for you mate, the base is literally watered down filler with some grit in it and cheap acrylic paint for colouring, then I used the acrylic paints as a wash over the lot in conjunction with some spray paint.

Completely agree with Gits, you have nailed the colour tones on this, spot on, good and interesting pieces of terrain as well, great stuff bud.

Nice to see you live and kicking, was a bit worried.

No need to worry Cam! i'm still kicking but man i've been busy with work, this week alone i've clocked up 67 hours! and managed to finish Whaleys Goblins to a tabletop level and then just sort of chill and throw some paint on a couple of miniatures from Artel 'W' miniatures I've gone with a sort of character level job on the Kiborc and experimented with painting parts of him with martian ironearth before painting to give a weathered paint on his Klaw, and I had a play around with the bone on the Boneshee (howling banshee) and now I'm REALLY wanting to do a saim hann Eldar army I think it'll look super good with my red method on the models especially the vehicles! and if I can score myself a squad of the recently banned Boneshees then i'll certainly go ahead and do it!

but for now lets have a look at a couple of models! I'm hoping to sell the Kiborc (I have someone in mind ...... *cough* Whaley *cough*)







and now this stunning lady! I can totally see a 'W' squad painted up like this bursting from a wave serpent to have a slicing yelling good time! I also sort of attempted a more real world bone after seeing what my dogs left I added some brown and green washes to make it a little dirtier without being brown or filthy.





Now back onto the rest of Whaley's models before a special little commission arrives...... more later.

Dudes! I finally got a chance to paint a Custode! and not only was it 'just' a Custode, it was Ixion Hale and if Mike likes my work on him then it appears I may get a chance to paint an entire army of them!

This guy just looks regal, he looks like he knows how to handle himself and for that fact is just waiting for someone to try him out knowing full well he'd destroy any combatant.

I used the same gold I did on my Sanguinary guard when I did them a while ago and I had another go at the velvet look on his cloak to make him special, I think he's come together really nicely and I might try and convince Mike to get a Contemptor for me to paint

love to know what you think guys.
