Great work on the faun
The cleric is coming along very nicely.

Dodger looks like a very cool figure.

Triton looks like a beast. The deepwars stuff is starting to call me. I just put in the $1 on the KS to get the free PDFs to read the rules and get an idea before spending real money/time/effort to proceed. What do you think of the game itself?

Nice work on the faun, very classic looking scheme and well executed! Cleric is also great, are those bones she's standing on? And both "next in line" minis look very interesting, excited to see them with paint on!

Thanks!
Unfortunately, I don't play Deep Wars (I'm not much of a gamer) so I can't tell you too much about it.

The Cleric is standing on more than bones, it's sort of a people puddle.


Got the Cleric (Kingdom Death) finished faster than I thought:-





I was a lot happier with this one before I took my final pictures.
Not sure what it is, but overall my minis just aren't looking that good any more (And I was never painting to a particularly high standard in the first place).

Something to ponder on while painting the new guys.

Loving that Cleric, she looks great. Always a huge fan of Kingdom Death's designs and proportions as ridiculous as they are.

I don't like Kingdom Deaths stuff when the proportions get too exaggerated, which Cleric suffers from a bit, but she has a lovely wacky costume to make up for it.


Slowly painting stuff still, Mostly I've been working on Tritons tail:-



I've been using some of that fancy colour-shifting paint, looks great in hand but photographs poorly.
I also can't work out how to shade and highlight the stuff, so I don't think I'll use it on such a large area again.

Also working on Dodger:-



Who's looking pretty terrible at the moment, I'm hoping that's just a bad picture.

And I've also added Corsair (Guild Ball) to the table:-



At least he's looking okay-ish.

Finally got something else finished!

Here's Triton (Deep Wars):-



The highlights are a bit rough but overall I think he turned out okay.

Almost managed to finish Dodger and Corsair:-



Should, hopefully, get them finished in the next couple of days.

And then it's on to other things:-



The Shroomancer!



And this will eventually be a submarine.

Finished more stuff, Corsair (Guild Ball):-



Pretty happy with this one, but my Guild Ball stuff always turns out decent for some reason.

And the Artful Dodger (Twisted):-



Still feel meh about this guy, he remained hard to paint and even harder to photograph to the very end.

Work in progress wise, I've made a start to the Shroomancer:-



Early days, but I'm happy I seem to have captured his 'WTF is that!' expression.

Also working on the fancy coral reef base for my submarine:-



I could really use a bigger brush for these bigger minis.

Artful Dodger turned out good. Can't wait to see you pull all the detail out of the sub base.

Dodger is such a cool model. I made a similar model way back when GorkaMorka came out.

Triton is looking great and that submarine base is going to be exciting to watch.

So, Artful Dodger has a mono-wheel instead of legs? Weird.

Nice to see DeepWars and some of the more 'niche' stuff get your unique treatment. Although I love to see it on anything really!

Is the plan on the coral base for it to be all sorts of different colours and a vibrant coral reef, or something more subdued? I think it could be a wonderful canvas for your style

Thanks guys! It's a great base, pity there's no fish on it though.

It's all Fagins fault for fiddling with things wot man was not meant to fiddle with.

Thanks! Like with Tritons base it's going to be mainly green, with the various corals picked out. There's a lot more coral on this one though, so it should be a bit more colourful.


Slow but steady progress this week.



I don't want to jinx myself, but the Shroomancer is coming along very nicely.



Just one last type of coral to paint, unfortunately there's dozens of the little beggers.

Thanks! It's supposed to be a Blue Ringed Octopus, but the markings were harder to paint than I thought.

Finished the coral base:-

Antimatter Games makes the sub, it's part of their Deep Wars line.


Finally got the 'Shroomancer finished, getting all my 7th Continent stuff ready for sale took more time than I thought!



Really pleased with this one, I think it's cartoony style worked well with how I paint.

Got a bit further with my sub cockpit:-



Just gotta repaint the window in the door (it's looking a bit meh), and then the pilot and his chair.
Then I can assemble the sub itself.

Also brought an Ogre (Games Workshop) to the table:-



Just done his skin so far.

Shroomancer is fantastic. Great character and color. That ogre model is rad. Nailed the face. Look forward to seeing the rest.

He's getting there slowly.


Finished my submarine cockpit:-



And now I've started on one half of the submarine:-



Took a lot of work getting it prepped, it was that terrible resin combination of needing lots of clean-up and incredibly fragile, and I managed to break one of the clear resin parts so no windows for my cockpit
Currently I'm not sure if I should go for a lighter metallic blue or not.

As the submarine used up a lot of hobby time, didn't make much progress on my Ogre:-



But he is getting there.

The sub is going to be rather impresssive. Ogre progress is small but well done.

Still nothing to show off.
Was making steady if incredibly slow progress, when my bottle of black went all gloopy.
Almost a week later and I'm still waiting on the new one I ordered, so I took this time to assemble some new minis I've treated myself to:-



It's the Marvel Crisis Protocol starter set (just got a little bit more terrain to build).
Pretty decent plastic minis, they're not Games Workshop good, but they're at least on par with what Malifaux and Kingdom Death are putting out.

Not looking forward to trying to paint Spider-man though.

I'm rooting for you on that sub. It's a daunting project to say the least- that's why mine's still in the box sadly!

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Watch and listen to me ramble about these minis before ruining them with paint!

Thanks guys!


Got fed up waiting for my bottle of black (I ordered another one in the end, now I have two!), so I started some other stuff.

Lady Fancy Hair has returned to the table:-



Just got to do her base now.

Hornblower!:-



I did a much better job of painting his face than that picture suggests, at least I think I did.

And Doctor Octopus:-



His head was surprisingly difficult to paint given how large it is.

Once these guys are done, I'll get back to the Sub and Ogre.

...Hopefully.
