@Empchild: Thanks.

@Sageheart: Unfortunately, I can't take credit for the sculpting of those.

@wolfshadow: They're more or less scratch-built/sculpted (apart from the "faces" and legs)

@Lennysmash: Thanks for your comment. I just painted the main torso of the objective marker in a grey-ish blue (will add some markings and such to make him look more pleasing) and not green as you suggest, but your idea finally got me thinking and put me on the right track i think. I don't really mind the changes in Paintpots because since the screw-top ones they introduced in the late 90s (which were pretty much horrible), all changes were for the better so far. And as I said, I also like the new ones (apart from the fact that they look way smaller than the 2003 paintpots. All they need to do is add that tiny little lid and I'm happy. I also use Vallejo paints (VMC and VMA) but mostly to fill gaps in the Citadel palette and for basecoating (which VMC are great for). Never really got the fuzz about dropped bottles. They're nice for Model Air colours but on VMC, I really don't need them and would prefer regular pots. But to each their own I guess. Price is a good argument though.


Anyway, maybe you remember that I'm on a tight schedule at the moment. Here's the first WIP of the first Wolf Lord (who has to be finished by Monday at the latest):







...and a detail shot of the right shoulderpad:


At first I wasn't too sure on how to tackle that guy but I'm starting to like him. He reminds me a lot of the time I painted the Warboss for my Space Orks army (bottom of the page).

Anyway, I'm proceeding pretty well and it's fun to paint him. My cold is getting better as well and I'll do a little trip to GW on Monday to get a replacement for the miscast Sicarius I recently got.

@dantay_xv: I get this question a lot. They're bought. Just google for "wargamma.com".


So basically the heraldry of the lord is continued on the Wolf as well, effectively making him a "battle brother" by giving him a left shoulderpad with the gread company badge on it.


I really love the messed up lighting on the first picture:

@dantay_xv: You're welcome. I actually considered getting a bunch of these wolves and selling them on. :p

@Lennysmash: Thanks for the comment. The ATM thing is deliberate. I figured I had to do something "funny" with this one because it's such an inexplicable, techy wotsit of which nobody really knows what it does so I thought it may be just as well an ATM.

@MiloticMaster: The regular wolves are scratchbuilt/converted, the Thunder Wolves are from wargamma.com. *puts another marker on the imaginary "where are those wolves from"-count*

@inmygravenimage: Cheers. I don't particularly love them but I got them at a sale, I think the pots are okay enough and they're alright to work with if watered down a lot (otherwise, they get a little "rubbery").


Small update - marker's done!



Cute thing that. He really looks like some kind of 1950s TV series robot.

The wolf lord himself is also finished now but doesn't look drastically different to the last update so no pictures of him this time. I've got some more work done on the Wolf and I should be able to finish him by tomorrow. Now for that Chooser of the Slain marker...

I really like the dying marine, and more so that is how I always pictured a fenrisian wolf.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

@manoknok: Not seen the movie, but your quote is getting me intrigued.

@wolfshadow: About the painting - sure, about the modelling - hardly possible, I didn't sculpt them. My client preferred to have his own personal sculptor do the wolves.

@Empchild: Thanks.



...aaaaand here's what I'm doing now: Bloodbowl!





I probably should have been doing something else today (like finishing one of the bazillion other project on my table) but these minis were very tempting. These, like the Bloodbowl Frogmen I did a few months ago, are by Gaspez Arts and now I'm fully convinced that they know their stuff. The Frogmen were cute as a novelty theme but these sculptors also do very, very good classic humanoid chaos marauders. Excellent. The miniatures are very big, definately more like 30 to 32mm scale than 28mm, but they're neat and fun to paint. That's why I'm also going a bit over the agreed painting level on this job.

Anyhow, let me apologize for the rather bad pictures; they look neater in real life.

Hope to finish these guys tomorrow so I can return to Space Wolfy stuff, Chaos Space Marines and whatnot. Seeya then!

qwolfshadow: Yeah, I'd love to take credit for having modelled these wolves though.


Finished!


I really kind of went over the necessary level but these were fun to paint. Seeing as how they have loads of mutations, I tried to make them colourful and diverse whilst sticking to a certain number of base colours. They really represent Chaos Undivided and look like true inhabitants of the deep chaos wastes.

Out of the three BB teams I painted so far, these have to be my favorite. Each miniature is a whole character. If you ever plan to get a Chaos team for BB - get these miniatures.




And here's a Space Wolves update as well! Well, not that much of an update really...but I got new pictures at least!

Markers:


Wolf Lord, finished with new Base:








Apart from that, I have to apologize to the cheap-o Revell airbrush gun. A few weeks ago, I more or less called it a useless piece of junk that doesn't work. I have to retract the "useless" part. It's really useful for varnishing a lot of miniatures at once. Tears through your paints but gets the job done quickly.

Speaking of airbrush matters, my new moisture trap/pressure regulator arrived. Works fine now and the whole thing is almost airtight now. Woohoo!

Anyway, thanks for looking. C&C welcome as well!

Good question. I think that many people burn out pretty quickly after starting serious commission work and I'm a bit surprised I haven't (yet ) completely burnt out. Had a pretty big low in fall 2009 though and this weekend, I was just not able to touch any fantasy minis. But in general, I guess I'm pretty resistant to monotony or boredom. Apart from that (and I know how corny that sounds), I really love painting those little buggers and I'm so darned happy that I have the opportunity to do this for a job now and at times I'm panicking that I might fail and am not able to do this any more or that I get some physical condition and can't paint minis any more. So depending on how you look it, it's either love for the subject or block-headed, cold-blooded panic of the future.

As for suggestions to others - I guess it's important to find a balance between keeping work diverse and getting stuff done. So it's a good thing to work on different subjects at once but keeping in mind that they should get finished fast.

@Miss Dee: I suggest only using one GW Grey. They just don't work together too well. Use one Grey and base the whole job on that by using mixes. I rarely use any colour right out of the pot and use a ton of mixes just because I prefer getting the exact colour I need. Nothing worse than trying to highlight one GW colour with another one (there's exceptions of course but I'd much rather highlight enchanted blue with an enchanted blue/white- or renchanted blue/bleached bone-mix rather than with Ice Blue. Just an example.)



So I was able to overcome my utter inability to even look at grey Space Wolves and got a bit done.

Built/Converted some Wolf Scouts:


The guys in the front (axe and prominent sword) have power weapons, the guy with the bare arm to the left of the poweraxe guy is getting mark of the Wulfen. Armless guy will get a Melter.

Proceeded with painting the Thunderwolf Cav and the Hero of Wolf Guard:


I guess I shouldn't write that down because it doesn't sound motivated but I figured that whining will make me seem so much more authentic, so here we go: painting grey power armour is no fun. Battle Damage is completely annoying.

Two days ago I got some work done on the Khorne Berzerkers as well. They're about 70 to 80% finished now.

@Natorum: Thanks.


Okay, I know there hasn't been an update in quite a while. So let's see what's new...I've mainly been working on some Khorne Chaos Space Marines but they're still not finished (sorry).

I won at a painting competition over at http://garagegamer.wordpress.com/ . I'm usually not hugely into painting competitions but this one had an interesting theme so I decided to participate. Here's a picture of my winning entry:



I only had two days or so to think of something to do, build and paint everything so it's not perfectly executed but it was fun putting the thing together.

Apart from that, the Thunderwolf Cavalry and a Wolfguard Hero will be finished within the next few days.

Alrighty, something new on the Space Wolves front:




The first five Terminators are about 70% finished. Not sure, maybe I need to redo the power weapons completely which would be very annoying but I'm afraid I messed those up a bit. Tried something new and I think I have to work on that technique a bit more.

SO! Massive pictures time!

(the Wolfguard hero still needs his Combimelta though)



Finished Terminators:





Variant armament for the Cyclone Terminator:




...and here's the new stuff!

Wolf Scouts (now twice as Space Barbarian-esque!) with two mission objective markers:


The second Wolf Lord:


It's really nice how this one looks very different to the first Wolf Lord.

So, that's tonight's update. I hope you like it.
