Subject: Tin Mech Workshop - log - miniatures, terrain and more
I present you Lanyssa, a new member of my diabolical Highborne Covenant plan:
Im pretty happy how she turned out. Especially because shes a beutiful sculpt. And I can use her in warmachine games.
I took some notes from painting Taxis on troll and applied the Agrax wash calmly without splashing to much around.
Also Im happy with myself because I managed to stick to this figure for two days and I made it all. Colors, Wash, base, front arc, grass.
Only thing I could add now is some glowing, hateful blue eyes. She is a fierce woman after all.
After how nice the skin looks Im thinking about redoing skin on Taxis. But if I come around it you'll have to look for it on that other forum where you can search for TinMechWorkshop.
I'll update some basing I'm doing currently for that model.
Well it's been a while since my last update.
So sorry for all of you that actually check out my work (all two of you? no matter its all about fun with paints and steam)
Lets start with something sweet?
Do you like bearclaws? Well I do but this is not about pastry.
Introducing my attempt at a Kodiak 2.0
Still needs a lot of work. But isn't this guy lovable? You just have to let him hug you, don't you think?
For now the hands are just attached via putty but I'll magnetize them in time. They are from Black Ivan. Ever since I've seen that bad boy I knew 2 things.
1. I have to buy this guy.
2. I'd love a kodiak with such claws
Well now I got them both. Although Black Ivan still needs magnetizing. But I think it was worth all the work. Now just to take care of gaps, magnetize and give this bad boy a good paintjob.
Gonna try and get back to regular posting of my work.
As it was a while since my last update I give you something special.
In the old days when I was a Games Workshop fan I picked up this mini below. It was supposed to be part of a Dark Eldar beast pack.
Poor guy was sitting idle on the shelf.
I don't know about you but I can't look into his puppy eyes and allow him to rot away. So I got a struck of genius ( I guess I'm not that braindead as I thought)
So I'm gonna finish up his base and he's gonna be my stand in Bullsnapper. Which will work great with the alternative Wrong Eye and Snapjaw project I mentioned a while ago.
I still can't find much time to finish up their bases. I need to test all the great swamp tips I aquired from the internet.
Also time is of the essence and MK3 might invalidate 4* syndicate combo. I might have to just try this thing out without as is unfinished.
Here are some groupshots of the alternative dream team. And Khadors Robocop himself.

OK let's try some necromancy and bring this thread back to life.
Rise! I command thee!
I've always thought anyone can paint a decent table top standard.
So I've made a step by step painting process for my Gorax Rager for my minion caster Arkadius.
The process of painting eyes:
Here's a 360 animation of the process from fully asembled to fully painted:
Things I need to improve is the lighting setup and a better camera.
This was made only with a vice held phone camera.
Cheers. Hope you enjoyed it.

Cheers time for a small update.
I've managed to update my lighting setup for taking miniature pictures.
The Gorax 360 was built as a test project if I could make something decent.
If the concept of a stage by stage painting log is viable.
As you can see there are 'fancy' lights and duct tape. Hell I even have string holding up one of the lamps.
It was shot with a Nokia Lumia 520 phone. With a stand I made out of wood and held by a vice.
Now exibit 2:
A friend gave me pointers on evenly lighting the scene with pretty much no hard shadows.
Its a 'crate' that can be folded that you can buy at something like wallmart or any other equivelant. The main thing it disipates light through the walls.
So I've shot another model in 360 fashion. This time with a camera mounted on a tripod.
I think my friend went a little overboard with the lighting but something in between would be nice for the future.
This animation shows a comparison between original shots of the model and enhanced pictures in photoshop.
What do you think?
Should I make a new log? Theres a lot of pictures here that are not hosted anywhere from before when I was starting this thread.
