The berserker guy is in fact a dwarf. He's an ally for the halflings.

Looks good.

We need to decide what the game of choice will be for Saturday- Paleo Diet, Street Masters, or more Shadespire.

We can actually try Paleo Diet prior to getting together for dinner, as the kids have to get their photos taken for Japanese school, which means I'm not stuck having to get them in the afternoon if you're down.

Nice work on those barbarians - and a reminder that I have a shieldwolf KS laying around somewhere.

I got another badass woman painted. This one is equally impractically dressed as the barbarians were though. I present the Amazonia, from Urban War!



This is apparently the resculpt of the unit as the earlier versions were more heroically proportioned, wore somehow less clothing, and also carried huge swords on their backs. Major under-boobage aside, I really like the look of this figure. I still think that the Urban War gladiators would make great Khorne cultists in 40k.

Up next is a Tau Pathfinder with a railgun that I'm not especially happy with.



For whatever reason, the paint just didn't work the way I wanted it to on this guy.

Following him, I added to my Ion Age Prydian army with the addition of some artillery.



More details on the gun.



And the crew.



I'm going for sort of a Lamenters look with these guys. I will eventually make a full Prydian Knight force in this scheme.

I have plenty more Barbarians to work on, but none in today's update. Instead, how about a nude cyborg?



I really wish 40k had some kinds of light armored, pistol wielding unit in the Mechanicus army that I could take multiples of. This is my third Artemis Biosynth from Urban War, and while I'd like to use them in 40k as proxies in my Mechanicus army, I can't think of any units they could represent.

Now, this is totally random, but I also worked on a Malifaux figure. My Guild collection increases in size once more. This time, I've completed the old metal Executioner.



He's a jolly looking fellow. I wonder if those are his hands, or someone else's?

I like the cyborg. The Artemis and Achilles biosynths are very cool models.

Is that the early synth model? You mentioned one having less clothes. I don't think that one could really wear any less than it already is.

The random wires are a nice touch. Paint job looks good.

Maybe as a rust stalker? They're fast and stealthy aren't they? No armor lets her run around quickly.

Highlord Tamburlaine, this is not one of the early Synth models, just one of the harder ones to find. I'm pretty sure there's a few more I still don't have. The Biosynths were actually available back during the Void days, but they looked a fair bit different. They were fully clothed and looked more like something from Shadowrun.

I could maybe use them as Sicarian Infiltrators, the problem being their lack of a taser goad (I guess their fists could be electrified), and their bases are too small. Sicarians are on 40s while these girls are on 30s.

Youwashock, I would like to get an Achilles someday.

Johnhwang, what's so strange about having nude, pistol wielding cyborgs? Would it help if I pointed out that the male Achilles Biosynths are just as naked?

BobtheInquisitor, painting that much bare skin leaves me very hesitant, for some reason. I've lately only been using two flesh tone paints. I have a basic dark flesh, which i've mostly been using lately and a very watery light tone that's a pain to work with. Thankfully, I discovered a mid tone flesh color I'd forgotten I had that worked well with both of the other shades. It made painting the Artemis much easier and made mixing paints a bit easier too, since I wasn't getting such a sharp shift in paint colors like I did when I triedmixing the light and dark skin tones.

Today's update is a Tharn Blood Tracker from Hordes. I got this figure in a batch of randoms from Highlorn Tamburlaine. Like my Shieldwolf Barbarians and my SOBH Pelters, I think she'll be perfect for Paleo Diet.



Only thing I didn't realize is that she's missing a shield. It's no big deal that it isn't there, though. I think, until I work on my Axibalan amazons from Shadowsea, this will be it for Barbarian women for a little while.

The colors work. The order she came in, there weren't enough shields or quivers of javelins sadly.

I don't think I'm going to be able to get to mine any time soon sadly. At least my male Tharn might get done before I leave.

The model looks great, and a shield would probably detract from the overall design.

The paint is called Splinter Camouflage Base, it's part of Vallejo's Panzer Aces paint line. I use it pretty extensively. It's what I used to do the edge highlighting on my Death Guard.

I finally completed the last of my Sons of Rasputin, the Northern Sons. I've been sitting on these guys for a long time, so I'm happy to finally have them finished. Someday I'll find the other figures I'm missing from their line.



I also got started on my Turf War Z minis from Studio Miniatures. Up first, I did a couple of SWAT officers. One with a riot shield, and one with an MP-5.





I've got the rest of the officers assembled and primed. It's just a matter of getting to them.

The Sons of Rasputin as a whole are such ugly little models, I absolutely love them! I think if I were to sell off all of my models, I'd hold onto them. There's just something about them. They're like pugs. Absolutely ugly, but there's just something about them I just can't help but love.

Speaking of old models though, I whipped up a new Farseer. I ordered the old Rogue Trader Farseer back when GW did their Made To Order Eldar stuff (along with a Bone Singer). This is another sculpt I always liked. There's just something about him. That helmet has such a weird, alien feel to it. Plus, it looks kind of like Trumpy from Pod People. Or a Cobra-La Royal Guard.



One thing I like about the Eldar from the early days of 40k is that they really seemed to push for more of an Asian feel to them. It's especially apparent on this guy. I never knew he was carrying a giant sword until I had him in hand. So, once I realized that, I thought I would try something different with this figure that would capitalize on the more Asian feel of the figure. I decided to base his colors on the Shinsengumi. Completely out of left field, I know, but I am actually very pleased with the results.

Another Farseer. This time a later version. This is the metal version of the Singing Spear Farseer, who I happened across at the FLGS. This one is probably one of my favorite Farseer molds. He looks like he's about to go full on Shaolin monk on some poor Guardsman.



It took me a while to settle on a scheme for this guy. I had seen a tutorial for painting freehand cherry blossoms on Eldar and I really liked the idea of doing it myself, so I absolutely wanted to try it here. I was going to paint this guy completely different, but Highlord Tamburlaine convinced me to keep the Shinsengumi theme. So, I decided to stick with both the cherry blossoms and the Shinsengumi ideas. Like with the Rogue Trader guy, I'm actually very happy with the results. All that's left now is to paint the Warlock and Bonesinger to match them.

Rounding out this liitle jaunt into Eldar, we have the promised Warlock with antlers.



And all three together.



I'm going to take a break for a day or two, then it's on to painting either more dwarves or cops.

The space elf wizards look really solid, you've added some characterful flourishes to what's a pretty sweet scheme, with the blue + white overcloaks offset by black + bone. And I agree with your commentary on the sculpts, those are certainly the most iconic farseer for me as well, especially ol' bulbous helm over-there-pointer himself.

I would have had Lord Felthius completed back when I did his Tainted Cohort, but I didn't want him to have a bare head. It took me a while, but I finally settled on a head I was happy with for him, a spare Tartaros Terminator helmet. I think it works quite well.

I spent last night doing some assembly for some upcoming peojects. I finished the assembly of an Ursarax team and a Legion Champion.



The Champion is a figure that's really grown on me. I like the pose and for some odd reason, I really like his asymmetrical armor. My plan is to eventually do up a squad with a few additional special units of loyalist Death Guard to use in Kill Team when it eventually hits. Why loyalist Death Guard? Why not? They look cool and the Horus Heresy stuff is also cool. I like the thought of having a group of loyalists from the Heresy having been time displaced by the Warp. It's also a good fluffy reason for having Imperial vs. Imperial fights.

The Ursarax should be fun to paint. Those arm cables were a pita to mount though. Also not helpful was some of the finger pieces coming off the sprue while I was trying to clean them. The drain managed to catch one of the lightning claws that got loose, leaving me with one claw short of arming the whole squad with claws. I'm very annoyed about that.







Before I get to these though, I have a few more projects ahead of them. These include more cops, Dirty Harry, Che Guevara, space dwarves, and the Plague Brethren.

So, as you might've guessed from the presence of the Legion Champion, I also have a Master of Signals. I must admit, I really didn't like the figure initially on account of his bulbous helmet. But, having him in hand, he's really grown on me, especially once I got some paint on him.



I mentioned I'd be doing the Champion in Death Guard colors, so you might be wondering why I did this half of the set as a Raptor. Well, since Raptors are basically Reasonable Marines and actually use proper military tactics, I figured they would be one of the few chapters to still maintain this unit. Having a forward observer on hand to call in orbital and artillery strikes would be a very smart move. While he may not have a tabletop role in proper 40k (I think), he could still be useful as an objective marker or something.

Now, this next figure is totally random as hell and I have Studio Miniatures to thank for that. He was a backer freebie for Turf War Z. This is obviously Che Guevara.



I have no clue what I'm going to do with him.
