youwashock,

You are bouncing from game to game and model to model.

Whispers: "Go back to update more Eldar."

Love those zoidberg chaps, the pale green with bold red is a really effective scheme.

and thanks for posting that basing method. I've never been that adventurous with bases so its good to get some tips

Hey, all. Thank you for the comments and compliments.

Boss Salvage, that would be the Lupucide, I believe. Amazing names, this game had. Havoc Staffs and Shock Rods. Yeesh. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the minis.

Maharg, no problem. I normally don't stray beyond standard basing, myself. These guys are pretty much a throwaway project so I was comfortable experimenting. Who knows if they will even get used.

Work continues. Assembled a few more Relic Knights figures, which I neglected to take pics of, a couple more Demonics, and put some more paint on the Knight. Vision is also nearing completion, and the Griffon has been started. Some WiP shots.





Enlarged to show texture. Like your cereal.



The guy from the drill team has no mask. You can see what I was saying about the eyes. He has none.



And since I hear a voice whispering somewhere in the background, a squad of Fire Dragons has moved to the desk. They have been in this state since the transition from 2nd to 3rd. Looks like they might get finished finally.



Plenty going on. Slow progress is still progress. Thanks for looking!

Knight looks interesting with the various layers and washes.

Ah, classic Fire Dragons.

Liking the progress on your knight, it’s looking nicely worn and ancient.

What’s the plan with th fire dragons? Straight up yellow or yellow through red to black like smouldering coal?

Thanks, guys.

Planning mostly yellow body, chestnut wash, dark red helmet, black guns like the Warp Spiders with brass nozzles.

Always love seeing the aspect warriors, some of the best sculpts ever done.

Nice work on the knight as well .

The knight is looking great, lovely grimy, tarnished metal.

Also happy to see those original Fire Dragons there - even though I've bought the newer ones in my ebay trawling I've always had a huge soft spot for the originals. They certainly hold up a lot better than most other models of a similar age. Look forward to seeing what you do with them.

I love the way you decided to paint your knight, just working on the skeletal structure like that is really smart and let's you just go to town on it without worrying about other pieces getting in the way. I'm digging the worn metal looks you have going on too, looks well used. If you don't mind my asking what was your technique for weathering this guy?

Thank you very much for the comments, all.

IF, the metal areas are first primed black, then drybrushed sloppily with P3 Molten bronze, then stippled sloppily with a craft store bronze that is a lighter shade. After that it is drybrushed with Army Painter Plate Mail Metal. Then you hit recessed areas or areas you want some grime build-up with Agrax or Nuln Oil, feel free to get streaky or sloppy here, as well. Next there is a patchy stipple with Citadel Chestnut ink for the rust spots. Finally sponge dings with Vallejo German Grey. The key, I believe, is to just keep building the surface.

Slow progress, but Vision is done, so it is varnish and basing time for him. Will probably hold off as the next 2 Demonics are also close to being done. Will have pics then. Thanks again for the compliments!

For that kind of thing, I kind of wonder if it would be easier to spray Testors Silver and then apply various washes.

Thx for the breakdown youwashock. I only use GW paints as they are the easiest for me to get but I'm sure I can find the analogs within my collection. If anything it's a good guide I can use as a basis for my own technique. Thanks man.

Love the metal work on the Knight, great that you have a technique down for such an excellent weathered effect.

Still love those Fire Dragons, so close to Mr Goodwin's concept sketches from way back in White Dwarf 127 (irrc), glad that you are motivated to get working on them after all this time.

Thanks, ListenToMeWarriors. WD 124 and 127 will always hold a special place in gaming history for me.

Yeah, Theo, sometimes it seems like there is no easy way around it.

Been working, slowly. Also had a chance to indulge the easiest part of the hobby, acquiring more models! Hit the semi-annual swap meet at Great Escape Games last weekend. Always cool to see the stuff all out for perusal and haggling over prices. Picked up a few things.

Some gems here. Ultraforge sexy demon and Red Lioness are lovely finds, especially at bargain prices. Enforcers are currently planned to serve as black ops counterparts to the Sedition Wars Samaritans, because I am doing so much with those figures right now...



Guess I play Dreadball now. Who am I kidding. At least I may paint some of the models. They look like fun.



The most surprising find was this guy. A kindly old gentleman was selling loose minis for a buck a pop. My last dollar found this 1999 Demonic with Flamer and Tech-fist, a model I have never seen in real life. Happy day! Missing the backpack, but I can find something I am sure.



On to painted stuff. Progress on Knight, Dragons, and Suicide Queen, but not pic-worthy yet. Finished Vision and two more Demonics. Demonics came out just fine. Fun models, fit with the others. Vision is a mixed bag. Things I like, things I don't. Cape came out ok. But he is done and that just leaves Cap and Thor and then this odd task I have set for myself will be finished.









And a good look at the radar screen.



Thanks for looking! Hope to have more soon!

Love the base on Vision, never a fan of the character, but I was an X-men fan and not an Avengers guy . His base is also really well done.

Radar screen is great.

Nice finds on the smexy demoness and lion.

The Demonics are new to me, really interesting models and they look great. I really like the red helm/mask as a spot colour with the primarily green paint job. Great sculpts as well.

Vision looks great, KM did a innovative dea with the flight stand as well.

Great work as ever youwashock. The zoidbergs in coats look really cool, nicely finished off with the radar screen. That and the arm for his gun reminds me of the Smart Gun from Aliens.

Can’t wait to see your progress on the knight and the fire dragons

Thank you very much, all. Greatly appreciated.

ListenToMeWarriors, sadly Vision is not a Knight Models figure. He is a repainted Heroclix figure. This whole Avengers project was born out of the frustration of NOT being able to get hild of the KM figures when the game went OOP.

A few bits of WiP to show. Dragons are still going, so I have a shot of the one that is furthest along, but still very much unfinished, and a bit of work on the Knight, heat stressed stacks and some kneepads. The rest of the armor plates will receive a similar treatment.







And lastly, a (hopefully) quick project inserted into the schedule. Shadows of Brimstone has caught on pretty strong with my game group, with one guy buying everything he can get his hands on and late pledging the current KS, and another guy buying a couple core sets and some expansions. It is a fun game, with serviceable models and a few standouts, like the honkin' big dragon and not-Cthulhu. Thankfully, I already own a couple honkin' big dragons and not-Cthulhus, so I don't feel compelled to add any of their figures to my collection. Unfortunately, I do like to feel at least a little invested in the games I play, so as I have been playing the Assassin and wanted a model with a little more curb appeal, I traded for Suspect 7 and will now have a couple to choose from. Looking to get these out fast, basic black costume and skin and hair and done. Really wanted to have them done by Friday, but due to life making it's lifey moves, I have only assembled, based and primed so far.



Also finished Suicide Queen and almost done with her bike but could not get a decent pic for nothin' so I gave up until I can get her in the lightbox. All the pics last night were giving me a hassle. I blame sunspots.

Thanks for looking!
