Where are those witches from? They look like quite wonderful models, and your paintjob compliments them well.

Now that is a ferryman to pay! I can't remember whether Charon had his boat named, but I've once boarded a piece of wooden junk named Sandrubber or Bottomrubber (depending on the translator). Just as an idle thought/suggestion. it sure looks good with any name, a very nice addition to the table! Congratulations!

Thanks - it should come in handy for Cave Fishing.

And a 3D printed dome thing - which opens!

Very cool opening dome. You could use it as a missile silo that opens at the end of a certain turn and launches. And good point about the texture. It can take away from the realism of certain objects so it is an interesting idea to print things that would benefit from the texture, rather than trying to fight it.

Thanks! The 3rd Printing is interesting - I wonder where it will all go. Will we be printing all our miniatures in 5 years? In the meantime, hey, palm trees are super cheap on Amazon! I want to do 40k world that is basically the pacific islands sometime, plus perhaps a Lustria warbands game.

So I got a huge score of terrain from Captain Brown - Thanks! I look foward to using it, and assembling the partial bits. For example, I'm going to do the spaceship half overgrown with jungle stuff.

I also painted some Bugbears and Ratlings. I do like the classic Ratlings. Very British army, but short.

I did up some of the Punch out terrain from Battlesystems - they are great scatter terrain. I glued them together and painted some of the edges - often with Contrast, which worked well.





















And some totally random stuff made from the bits of crap I just can't resist picking up.

Ooh, I like that flower box. I've seen several people on Dakka using those bottle caps for terrain, but I don't think they are sold in Japan.

Now showing RAFM Airship Pirates, along with a special guest star!




Painting Total as of 3/30/2020: 62 plus two mechs

Painting total as of 12/24/2019: 138 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit and two hills.

I like how you did the old Ratlings. The flesh, wood and metal tones all turned out well. The punch out terrain is also quite interesting, some of the pieces really look good. Quite a good bang for the buck in terms of effectiveness to build/paint time! I just looked at their site, and the Battle Systems are intriguing. For a fairly low cost and time outlay you can have a decent board for Zone Mortalis or Necromunda.

That paper terrain looks great, where's the crashed ship from?

@Josh, if it helps the bottle cap is from Tropicana, I think they use it for almost all their juice. Might be available from Japanese Amazon or Costco if it's not made locally.

Or I could mail you a few since I have more than I'll ever need

Thanks! The ratlings were done with Contrast, with generous amounts of nuln oil to darken up some areas. I'm kind of on a blue'd metal kick, which is done with nuln and gryph charger grey.

You'd have to ask Captain Brown about the ship - I've never seen it before.

Kid_Kyoto, it was some GorkaMorka terrain released with the Digganob releases.

Inquisitors! Models that are in some ways very different - so I painted them very differently.









The dude is a bit greener than I intended. I may put another layer of some kind of contrast on there to make his coat more bluish grey. Currently it is all Gryph charger grey, which is usually great, but seems to come out very green if you put on multiple layers.

Nice. Is the grey-green the same as you used on the hood lettering? That works well, so if it is the same maybe it just needs another coat on the..err...coat...?

Nice inquisitors, reminds me I should finally build my Greyfax model.

It is the same green (techically a grey?) , so maybe... ...although there are already 3 coats on there. When contrast works, it works. When it doesn't, it is hard to figure out what to do without wasting everything you've already done.

I'm switching gears to Orks and Terrain mostly as I prepare for Briancj's "WAAAGGHHH the Dog" campaign. Here's I-Walker's Dakkajet. I had the problem I always have with the new ork models - you start dirtying them up, and you get into this kid of slide that leads to a bad place. I stopped in time time I think. Lovely model. I may build one unmodified myself, which since I loath having the same models as anyone else when it comes to Ork vehicles, is saying something. Probably though I'll build mine with extra gun positions to make it more of a heavy bomber.

Nope...lost me. Sentence does not compute.

Fair enough on the coats, I've no experience with contrast paints, so mainly just babbling anyway


Looks good in blue, I like it. Dirt and grease look fine, a bit of chipping always looks good on an ork, would finish it nicely - but that's just me

Well, you see why it is such a high complement for my to even consider such a thing. : )

Contrast is really strange. For example, gryph charger grey seems to be a neat bluish grey. But as I put on more and more coats it got greener and greener and cloudier and cloudier. Yet the trim worked great in one pass, probably because more pooled in the recesses. I think you could learn a great deal about color theory from contrast, but I've always been bad at it.

Long story short - your guess is as good as mine! Contrast has its own alchemy.
