I love the color and texture you used to paint the Sphyr's skin.

Yeah, that's a great skin tone for Sphyr, would look great on a full team of oceanics. What's your recipe, might use it for the Big Shark.

It's actually just a sky blue with a watered down black wash over it. Then a highlight layer with the sky blue and a little white mixed in. Nothing fancy whatsoever.

I've been painting a number of minis in white lately, it seems. I completed two more Death Guard Marines.





Just some standard Bolter guys, so nothing terribly fancy this time.

And I completed a Menoth Exemplar Warder.



Lighting didn't want to cooperate too much. That's bone white armor, brass trim, Screamer Pink and gold were also used for some of the details. He's supposed to have a tassel hanging from his halberd, but it just didn't look quite right. Something about the way it hung didn't feel natural, so I just removed it. He's a cool looking figure and much chunkier than the regular Exemplar figures.

He does look a lot better without the tassle. I agree, it looked out of place. Still not a fan of the blade on his polearm, but it's a definite improvement.

Are you using real white or cheating ghost grey white?

Well, I painted another S.T.A.R. Trooper from RBJ.



I also finally got around to finishing up the Carmin Ronin I've been working on for about the past two weeks. This robot comes from Eden, a part of the ISC factio.



Weirdly enough, promo pictures all show him with a very different face. The official photos all show him with a face that almost looks like a hockey mask, not the skull face he actually has. And no, I'm not missing a piece, nor is his head a separate part. This figure's actually kind of large, but his arms and swords feel super thin, like I'm going to break them off every time I handle the figure. I'm not really a fan of him.

I am a fan of this guy though.



This is one of the Construct's from Archon's Fall of Man Kickstarter. Yeah, I know, people have a hate-on for Prodos, but the figure is actually quite nice and solid. I like that he's pretty much a Dark Eldar Wraight Guard. I actually modified him and magnetized his arms, so if I ever finish it, I can swap in his cannon for ranged combat.

Lastly, I decided I should probably get around to starting my Secrets of the Third Reich Kickstarter stuff. I got a bunch of mechs and Imperial Japanese troops. Figured I'd start with the Japanese. Oddly enough, I have never seen any pictures of the actual figures on the internet, painted or otherwise. So, lucky you, you're seeing the internet's very first SOTR Imperial Japanese Navy trooper.

The Dark Eldar Wraith thing is from Prodos' Empire of Man, not Fall of Man.

You really ought to do the cannon one of these days for it. I gave it to you, right?

Got some more Marines done. More Imperial Japanese Marines, that is.

And possibly of more interest to this board, I actually painted one of my Space Marine Heroes figures I picked up last year. My hope is to have all five of my figures painted. Since there's not actually any chapter markings sculpted onto them, I'm free to throw them in with the rest of my Raptors.

This guy is Brother Vanial.

Are we ever going to see you use those Raptors in a Kill Team proper?

Because you keep painting them, but all I ever seem to fight are Nurgley garbage, over kitted black ops marines, or electronic junky toaster worshippers.

I love the star trooper figure and the Eden guy, both are things I could see go into my collection. I’ve been tempted by eden, and now I hear they are coming in plastic instead of metal , might be my next foray after Bushido.

some if the Eden stuff was made into restic for a board game. I don't think the majority of the ISC faction has made it into plastics. Some could probably use the material shift. The Carmin Ronin feels really fragile, despite being rather large. Every time I handle him, I feel like I'm going to break his arms off.

Highlord, you have fought my Primaris Raptors. Aside from my Master of Signals and the Apothecary, Vanial is actually the first regular Marine I've done for them. I'm thinking I might convert one of my Space Marine Heroes doubles rather than try to sell him off, just for a bit more variety.

It's been pretty slow going since my last update. I've been slowly (very slowly) working on some Adeptus Titanicus Imperial Knights. Despite their tiny size, I feel like they're taking me just as long to do as a full sized Knight. Aside from decals, I got the first one done. I chose to do House Vyronii since, well, I'd had enough painting red with the full sized ones.



I got a few D&D monsters painted up as well. A Shambling Mound, and a Dragonborn. There's another Dragonborn Paladin on the table being worked on, another Owl Bear, and a small dragon still to be worked on as well.





I'm not sure how I feel about the Shambling Mound. I don't feel very pleased with it.

Maybe paint the teeth on the shambling mound? Throw a bit more green on it?

I'm one to talk. I got mine base coated... and that's it. No idea how I want to progress on mine.

The Shambling Mound is actually green. It's just a dark green. My lighting isn't working the way I'd like it to these past couple days and the pictures are coming out too dark.

I got two more of my Space Marine Heroes finished. I actually even used some decals this time for the Tactical insignias. This time we have Brothers Castor and Titus.

Brother Castor, the most basic and boring looking of the bunch.



He got a head swap. I figured I ought to do at least one without a helmet as their heads were actually well sculpted with a fair bit of personality to them. I don't remember whose head this is, but it isn't the one that comes with Castor.

Brother Titus

They look good. You plan on doing any more with the shambling mound?

The second brother though- did you NOT drill out the barrel of his gun? Did you paint it? For SHAME.

Okay, I updated the Shambling Mound. Made him a bit greener, added some additional highlighting, and I added some moss.







Then I also completed two more of my Space Marine Heroes, Brothers Remus and Gaiun. Just one more of them in my collection to do until I can get a hold of Brother Promethor, the Captain, and Labyrinth of the Necrons.

Brother Remus



Brother Gaiun



And lastly, I finished another figure I've had sitting around for years. One I felt like I was never going to finish. This is the dismounted female Enforcer Pathfinder from Deadzone.



I felt like a little change of pace from painting Space Marines and fantasy monsters. I also tried a different technique for painting white armor on her. I used Vallejo's grey wash rather than a black or a blue. It looks pretty good in person, though it doesn't show up as well in photos. I have the mounted version of her with the monocycle on my desk. I'll probably start working on that pretty soon.

Well, I got some more stuff done for Ebay, but it was pretty much just doubles of things I've already posted on here. No need to show them again. But, in terms of things I've painted for me, I actually got started on my Kings of War Vanguard Abyssal stuff. I'm not sure how much of them I'll be painting right now, but for the time being, I'm going to at least paint up some of the new figures.

Here's the Succubus Lurker. I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with the purple skin for them. I thought I'd try doing at least one with a skin tone that matched up with their GW equivalent Chaos God. Red for the Lower Abyssals, blue for the magic guys, and purple for the ladies.

I do really like this figure though. The Succubi were what really got me to buy this army.



This guy is an Abyssal Guard. Nothing too amazing about him. He's basically just a geared up Lower Abyssal.

I have BobtheInquisitor's sitting on a shelf that he's more than welcome to paint...

Perhaps Barazam can part with that Plagueburst Crawler he hasn't bothered with in return...

You talking the Chroneas, or the big burly Daemon Prince looking guy with the wings? If you're talking the burly guy, I painted Reaper's equivalent to it a long while back. Does that count?

I know I haven't posted an update in a good long while, but that doesn't mean I haven't been painting. I just haven't had the chance to actually take photos. So here's a few things I've been working on.

New additions for my Raptors for Squad Sevastus. Here's Brother Promethor.



Here's Brother Garus.



If you're interested in their bios/fluff, I included it in the pics in the gallery. Just click on the pics. This pretty much completes Squad Sevastus, though I do lack Sergeant Sevastus himself. Once I get my hands on a copy of Labyrinth of the Necrons, I'll actually have the squad complete.

I completed some Studio Miniatures plastic zombies. They're okay. They're a bit more true scaled than most of my other zombies. Mantic's in particular are a bit chunkier. In a group though, that won't be so noticeable. They'd probably go nicely withe the Wargames Factory/Warlord zombies.







I'm actually house sitting once again, and I completed these three just before starting, so I wasn't able to get to the fourth member of the sprue. I'll get to him when I get back home.

Lastly, I've been working on some Mantic stuff. I said I was working on the mounted female Enforcer Pathfinder. Well, I finished her. Finally. I've only had her since the original Deadzone Kickstarter.



This is still the only way to have a mounted Pathfinder right now. Supposedly Mantic is looking to bring this figure back. We'll see. I'd be more interested in them doing bikes for regular GCPS troops.

Speaking of the GCPS, I actually completed their Mule! I couldn't think of a good color scheme for it, so I decided to try and do something kind of similar to the US military equipment being used in Iraq and Afghanistan. I actually really like how it turned out.







It's hard to see, but I even painted the shocks on it. I really like it. It's a neat little APC. While I've been house sitting, I also started working on my GCPS Hornet and an Imperial Taurox. Both will have similar color schemes. Those two will by my next major projects.
