Argh!

Waiting for primer to cure is the worst! Especially when you know darn well the next week will be busy at work.

Thankfully us Canucks are celebrating a holiday so tomorrow I should be able to get some basecoats done.

No pics yet, but last night I assembled the first of the halloween grots... what's scary to a grot? Spez Marines! So the little guy is wearing a space marine costume. He'll be getting some buddies, haven't decided if they'll be a little grotling tac-squad or perhaps more varied costumes. I'd love to have tau, eldar, and 'nid costumes as well, but the cost of the bits may be prohibitive for singular models.

pics are awful, but hopefully suffice as proof. These grots dressed up as space marines for halloween :

So, just got the Village attacks kickstarter stuff in at the start of the month, really wanted to do that werewolf, so--proof pics, with bonus plague doctor I probably won't get to.



And I'd call this WIP, but really I just need to figure out what I want to do for a base. Open for ideas--could continue with the green stuff brick as its technically for a dungeon based game, but not sure it'll fit around his feet right, and may have the usual "model blends into the base" problem.

Extremely WIP with just a couple drybrush layers and a shade but its the first time I paint a really dark miniature. So... what can i do to make it not look like a big black thing? Am i worrying too much and once I drybrush it some more and add the details it will look ok? I could really use some advice.

Straken, yes, more layers of color and details will help, contrast I'm told is the big thing, and using it to define the shape. You can kinda see the shine from your light on him, and its a fairly bright grey- you can kinda use that as a guide. Also, use color variation and details to break it up--you can kinda see the start of an effect like that between the dark green of the horse and the dark blue of the guy.

Well I got some stuff basecoated today. My back is killing me so I don't have the energy to go get the good camera.

I decided to use brown as my basecoat for the yellow. I've seen that turn out well. Oh and for his cloak I decided on company colour outer layer and purple for the inner. So purple and orange, lol.

Might try some OSL on the pumpkin to make it look like less of a cartoon.

Oh and I forgot to say so last night but Coh, those Grots look great. This is going to be your thing isn't it? I must admit GW makes the best tiny goblins. I'm often tempted to do Grot things but there are so many projects already!

Here is another.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
I might do another couple layers of yellow, maybe with a bit of white mixed in. That should get the yellow to pop better. I wanted this guy to be really weathered like he's been fighting a long time but I still want that yellow to pop!

I've moved away from the GW style with raised highlights and the bold colours and started doing my own thing based on my experience painting Berzerkers. I'd like to think I'm inspired by Blanchitsu but I don't know. Whatever's. Basically the method revolves around building up from darker tones to a lighter one and leaving lots of shadow on the model. Each lighter shade goes on an increasingly smaller area so that the actual end tone takes up very little space. I work in small panels, sometimes it's just a dot of colour at the end. What ends up happening is the opposite of the GW style where the raised parts are the brightest. The edges remain dark and make it really easy to apply weathering. If I would have painted all this yesterday I could have taken better pictures to illustrate this...

Anyways, there he is. Captain Pumpkin Patch. Mostly done aside from whatever else I decide to do. Probably give him some muddy boots. Pick out the red Aquila and skulls better. Actually go get another blade for my hobby knife and drill that muzzle out a bit. And there is a bit of purple on the fold of his cape that needs touched up a bit.

Then it's on to that base! Skulls and Pumpkins. Hoorah.

Goddamn, Tim! That is one cool bit of modelling!
Lipsdapips' painting is super crisp and clean as always.
Looking forward to the finished result, darkcloak...interested to see how it turns out!

I like the fact that even when building Deathwatch, it has to be an Ultramarine Lipsdapips!

It's all for show, an attempt to prove he's still loyal despite the fact he's been painting filthy heretical Eldar over on his blog...

Thanks Chris56! I think it's going well, hopefully I can snap some better pics today.

And what? An Ultramarines player painting Eldar?? Doesn't he know the only form of approved heresy is to turn Traitor?! For shaaaame!

Some great entries, ideas and just awesome models so far, seem like the start of a really fun month

Yay welcome back Zobo, looking forward to your snail

Nice work darkcloak, I like what you have done with the base so far.

I've always liked your undead entries Nev, 3 of them will be wonderful

Really nice idea Tim, will be great to see it painted up.

I've been debating what to do for a few days but going with these guys, as always help with the names would be appreciated. What do you guys think?
I've come up with "The Wicked Witch of the Waaagh! (West)", Freddy Kruegrot (Krueger) and Orkenstein, the almost successful squig brain transplant patient.

Hobgoblin, though I really have to see how tidying the hood and face work out. Some greenstuffing is involved, I´m not sure I´ve got the skills at this small scale to make it look allright, but I´ll give it a shot.

ZoBo, that's a great paintjob! Cool use of the fluorescent paint, it looks very nice in the dark.
Midget Gems and Coh Magnussen, really funny conversions!

Then comes along the frakking Spinosaurus who kills the T-rex, and the movie says "LOVE THIS NOW! HE IS BETTER" But...in your heart, you love the T-rex, who shouldn't have lost to no stupid Spinosaurus. So you hate the movie. And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.
