14 year old me won a school painting comp with that Iron Priest. Shudder. I trust your version won't end up looking like my old 90's paint bomb colour splurge. Go look it up if you want to see that retina searing monstrosity, I won't sully your fine thread with it.
looking forward to seeing a modern paint job on those old classics.

The ambull is really nice and scary. What's the plan for the base? It'd look great in the snow!

That Ambull is great. I think I prefer it to the "proper" scheme GW give it.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

I'm glad your daughter is having fun painting things up, it'll be neat to see what she's done!

Thanks turtles, the green nodule is meant to be a poisonous wart, at least in my head!

I second what amazingturtles said: It would be cool to see what your daughter has painted!
It's so cool that you can share some of the hobby with her.

Thanks Ezki, I feel I need to mix it up and use something other than purple, but it’s kinda part of my Blackstone Theme. Sadly I keep forgetting to take pics of her “Little Guys.” Hopefully the weather turns soon and I can prime her EM4 dwarves (or is it dwarfs?)

I stalked out your Iron Priest, not sure I’ll put that many colours so liberally on mine! Once I’ve done all of my BSF minis I’m planning to paint on the triangles like the game boards. Midwinter Minis have a tutorial that gives quick and decent looking results. I’ve also seen some of the freehand attempts of others that will take longer, but can look better. We’ll see soon (hopefully) which I choose!
Fifty wrote:That Ambull is great. I think I prefer it to the "proper" scheme GW give it.

Thanks Fifty, she’s a cool model and something dark but fun really caught my imagination!

Thanks for all the kind words, it’s nice to hear that others like what I’m producing. I got a bit of progress on the Iron Priest and Njal Stormcaller, sadly was I mentioned above they’re not really inspiring me at the moment. I’d switch to something else but I’ve not got anything else ready for painting and I’m not wanting to fall in to the trap of having too many projects on the go at once (I’ve got enough to of that at work!). Anyway, I’ve decided the Iron Priest needs some Mechanicum red on him, so his armour trim has had a base coat of Khorne Red. Both also got their metals basecoated.

Next I’ll do their black and Yellow bits, Njals face and beard, ammo pouches and scrolls. Then it’ll be the fun bit of washes and highlights. Their bases will be pale stones with bits of Heresy era coloured Thousand Sons bits (random RTB01 arms I found). I’m pretending their in the ruins of Tizca which I always imagined as pale marble buildings, worn away over time to the pale stone bases

Anyways, enough ramblings from me. Thanks for looking!

That Ambull is awesome... really nice light touch on the highlighting, it's got great depth. As for your classic Marines, I'm stoked to see them get some pint. I'm thinking that'll be my line on this month's theme in the painting contest. I have no actual need for Marines, but I've got some fun, classic models. Love that Mechanicus dude.

Yep, gotta keep on keeping on, tonight was more enjoyable, but I still don’t have a clear idea of what I want the finished products to look like. Thanks for the kind words on the other Wolves

Yeah, January was a good month smashing out those Grots. I guess I don’t feel much of a connection to the Spwce Wolves as they weren’t originally mine.

Thanks Macaphail, I certainly enjoyed painting Mama Ambull, she came out pretty well for such a simple scheme. Always love some classic model, I’ll look out for yours!

I’ve made some good progress on this pair of Wolves tonight, getting all (apart for a couple of pouches I missed) of their base colours down. Njal’s Wolf cloak was pretty fun to paint and looks to have come out pretty well. It was just a few stripes of different browns up to bleached bone. His beard got some squid orange mixed with snakebite leather after I dropped some orange too soon! I thought I’d try some dwarf flesh for his face, which came out pinker than I recall. The yellows on both are just the first coat, and will get brighter. Their armour got some Agrax in the recesses and the gold and fur got some all over

I’m still not too convinced by the red on the iron priest but I’m not too unconvinced to change it . Next I’ll wash the metals with nuln oil before tidying up the colours I’ve washed then highlighting can commence. Njal’s runes look better after the Agrax wash, but I’m not sure what colour to go for with them. A yellowy Red seems like the classic so I might copy the MegaDave inspired power weapon recipe. That or I’ll go bright green or blue? Decisions, Decisions!

Thanks for looking!

Red on the iron priest looks ok to me, I think you should stick with it. Hope the inspiration strikes for you to finish these guys - I find this problem with marines more than anything else for some reason, I've never done more than a couple before starting something else.
Ambull turned out nice - the little coloured patches worked really well with the brown skin

The old wolves are coming along nicely. I like the red, too. For Njal's runes, a warm color is your best bet. Too cool and it may not pop enough off the armor color.

I am liking the progress on the Wolves. As Maharg says just keep on plodding on with them and before you know it they will be done, then you can move onto a more gratifying project. I am eager to see how your Tizcan based bases will look.

Overall I think it's a solid start on both. You can see how Njal is coming together nicely. The Iron Priest I think is a trickier mini to parse though. The sculpt is just so busy that any two colour pattern might look good in one part but clash in another part. I'm would honestly be feeling exactly the same trying to do that guy myself. It's hard to judge with just base colours on but hang in there, I can see it all coming together well in the end.

Slap some flat colour on those bases soon though. I think the white primer tends to with your appreciation of the grey.

Yeah, now I’ve got the shading and a bit of highlighting done it’s growing on me. Not sure I’m up for edge highlighting the notched trim though. Yep, I’m pleased with how Mrs Ambull came out, thanks Maharg

I think your right, I’ve gone with red so far, I might add a bright orange too, I’ll see how the mood takes me at the weekend.

Now I’m off the blocking in colours I’m enjoying them more, was half tempted to plough on and finish them tonight. Tiredness has gotten the better of me though. There’s nothing too special about the bases, a few red Thousand Sons bits and pale rocky surface like the rest of my Wolves.

Agreed, the iron priest is overly busy, I think metallic trim would’ve been more straightforward, but it always bugged me that all other techmarines are red to apease the machine spirit but he’s usually done in Space Wolves colours. Maybe all red with only the shoulder pads in Space Wolves colours? Still he’s coming together reasonably well now.

Thanks CB!

I kept the plodding going on. After a long day at work I decided to do some painting to help me “switch off”, it seems to have worked and I got quite a bit done. The most satisfy being tidying up their armour post washes and painting the techmarine’s bolter. I just love the yellow bolters, they’re very satisfyingly bright and 2nd Edition! I also spent some time on the Metallics and reds. Here’s where I got to;

I’m hopeful I’ll be able to finish them off this weekend, just a few more highlights, transfers and their bases to do. If the weather warms up I’ll spray my next batch of minis too. Just realised I forgot to snap my daughters little guys again.

Coming together nicely. Color blocking stage is always cruel, everything looks flat as until there's some washes to give depth. Really like this classic look of the models, even if I wasn't active when they first were around.

I should’ve known that you’d like the crow agreed on the yellow it adds a nice tone to the minis. Somehow it brought the red and blue grey together on the Iron Priest I think.

Yep, the blocking is a pain in the . Just a few more highlights to go now and these old timers will be done!

Hopefully tomorrow night!

No photos tonight I’m afraid, but I got a good batch of minis primed. I’ve decided that the cheap white primer I bought from wilkos is bobbins, I’ll save it for rank and file High Elves I think. I tried a halfords primer and it’s miles better at thin and neat coverage. I’ve not painted over it yet, but it looks amazing in comparison to others. I’ll have to get the black and white versions soon! In the batch are some High Elf Spearmen and a Silver Helm, both to get to a nice round unit size. There’s all bar 2 of the Blackstone Fortress Goodies and half a dozen EM dwarfs for my daughter. My wife is away for the night tomorrow, so should get a good long session in, so I’m hopeful to start on Amalyn Shadowguide. Probably get started on her when waiting for the shading on the Wolf bases to dry.

Pics with my next post I promise!

A good uninterrupted session last night got the Iron Priest and Njal Stormcaller finished. In the end I didn’t do much more than tidy up a few bits and add transfers. I’m reasonably pleased how they came out, particularly as I didn’t start with any ideas on how to paint them.

Spoiler:





Spoiler:



Having applied the wash to their bases I figured I may as well start on my BSF goodies. As with the others I’m following the YouTube guide from Midwinter Minis. Previously I changed up some of the colours, but for Amalyn and UR I’m going to pretty much follow them step by step. Amalyn is at the end of the speed painting phase and UR-025 is only a dry brush away from the same stage.

Already I think they’re looking good, and they’re the product of about an hours painting between them. Highlights are up next and quite perversely I’m looking forward to highlighting Amalyn’s armour. Midwinter dirtied up UR-025, but I might keep him/her looking in decent condition, then again it’s good to step outside of your comfort zone every now and then.

Thanks for looking

Man of Iron looks fun, and I'm not familiar with the tutorial so it'll be a nice surprise to see what he looks like when finished.

Cheers Ezki, they turned out pretty decent. The Blackstone models are so good it’s hard to make the look bad! I probably will have a go at the weathering on UR-025.

Thanks youwashock, I think these guys bring me to 10 Marines plus 2 actual Wolves. Hmmm, Njal needs a banner at some point, maybe I could give him glowing eyes then?
Yorkright wrote: I like how the wolves turned out glad you stuck it out. Got to agree with the rest that ranger and man of iron are looking sharp.
Thanks Yorkright, the Blackstone stuff really is something else, hopefully I do them justice.

I did a fair bit of layering tonight; neatening up the white after its wash then gradually adding yellow to the green. Sadly the photos either made the white look good or the green. I think it’s because the yellow I used (old bad moon yellow) is a bit glossy so i mainly got reflections of the light. The blue was old enchanted blue with a bit of white layered up then washed with the enchanted blue, I like how it came out.




I took all of the photos thinking I’d finished her, but I now see I missed a few gems and totally forgot to highlight them. that’ll be a job for the next session.

I got moving on UR-025 as well, his scheme is pretty simple. After the wash his armour was dry rushed white and his gun Skelton work Boltgun metal. Despite the pictures his arm and lights are orange.


A bit more detail on him and then I’ll try my hand at weathering.

Thanks for looking

I like where your going with these 2, the white is very striking. If I could make a suggestion, have you thought about bringing up the cloaks highlights? The green looks great but building up the folds and edges would really make the fig standout, just my opinion. Otherwise like I mentioned they look great.
