So cool to see real color on the finished dog sculpt, great work so far! And a lot of stuff coming along, like arquebus rat, that recoil must throw it right of the base

Viterbi-I'm glad I'm at the coloring stage on him. And don't worry about the rat, I'm sure the mechanicus has an attachment for that...

Minimal progress week, I'm afraid though.
Archers got all the base colors, and the front 10 got skin cleanup, though still have to do all the other color cleanups:

Did a bit of drybrush work on the dog fur:



Made some small highlights on the arquebus and primed the autocannon:


And gonna hedge my bets on the dog getting done for the challenge and maybe kickstart myself on working with a quick platypus:



Just gotta keep making layers, they'll get there eventually.

Never thought I see a Platypus on a painting table Excited to see how it turns out. But there seems to be a slight error with the pics, the second one is the same as the first and not your lovely dog sculpt.

Doh! What I get for trying to quick post on the shuttle into work before I hit the bad signal area. Fixed, thanks!

The platypus is from Oathsworn, by way of Wirecat on here, he's a cut little guy. I had another one, but I think I gave it to a friend, unpainted. Hoping he comes out decent.

Because I'm happy with how its going, dropping some more platypus pictures:



The fur, both on him and the possum fur cloak I think came out well, but I'm worried about contrast. Also needs more on the blacks, especially tail vs footpaws, and I want to do some freehand on the weapons.

The Platypus is coming along nicely.

That platypus is cool, but it took me a glance or two to realise that he was wearing a cloak...

Thanks aku-chan!

Guardling--yeah, thats what I meant by contrast-kind of feel like the inside of the cloak and belly fur blend a bit much, even with his side fur there, likewise the tail and the cloak ouside, and the paws vs the tail. Tried to do a bit more today, purple wash and some grey attempts at glazes. I think I mostly just muddled the bill. I may add another drybrush highlight or two to his head, and then I have to just do the weapons and base him up.

Very nice work on the fur. I think the brown/grey are distinct enough. Anytime you are dealing with multiple shades of the same color it’s a worry about them blending, but I think you are OK here.

You could always paint him green and give him a fedora.

Thanks nev, actually pushed him through to done. Thinking about it, probably missed a trick not drawing a fedora on the platypus on his throwing stick. Maybe if I find and do another.


Probably do an update on the other WIP stuff such as it is tomorrow.

I love the painting on those Aegyptian figures, so vibrant and strong! A refreshing change from ye olde grim darke around t’interwebs. I like those elementals a lot - reminds me of encountering them during Mech Commander 2 And MW 3 and going WTF are these horrid little...*

That platypus is rock solid and I love how crowded your bench is. Kind of reminds me of mine.

Amazing work on the platypus, the work on the fur and inside of the coat is great, but I love all the freehand on its sticks!

Thanks Ragsta, I do like my bright colors. One of these days I really have to finish the last point of the Falcon star, and start in on my ghost bears.

DJJazzyJeff--thanks! The clutter is nice for having things to work on to hand if I'm not feeling something, but it does get a bit overwhelming sometimes, especially when something is lost in a drift.

Viterbi-- thanks! Glad it came out, it was a bit nerve wracking getting it in without screwing up too bad.

Made a little progress this week, but other than the playpus, nothing really concentrated:

The ratquebus got some base prep done, though still need to carve all the wood texture there.


Likewise, basic rat guard got some cleanup, about ready for highlights.



Got another layer of color on the front archer regiment, mostly just needs the red, and then can go to wash and highlights, but the rear one still lags.


And did about one small area of green on the dog (or possibly some blue and metallics as well? I lose track). Kinda stalled out on him, but may grind it down yet.



Hoping for a bit more this week, but kinda comes down to my mood and sleep schedule. More or less kept to at least one layer on something a day at least.

Doggo is coming along well. One layer at a time, man. Baby steps onto the bus.

DJJazzyJeff--thanks. He's almost there, I think, but really not feeling attacking the sword, which I think is really the last big peice. (Though another pass on the blue probably wouldn't hurt, and I plan to do another drybrush pass at the fur)



Also almost there on the first 10 archers--should have used soft tone not mid brown, but not redoing the wholenskin over it. Debating a blue wash on the cloth and some edge highlights on the bow and such, vs just declaring them done bar bases:


Plus slung some paint at the rats, who are also kinda getting there for the non weapon team ones. Weapon team I am really hating past me on, so hard to get some of the areas on the chest.


Also got some more paint on the rat-terminators for my chaos force, but forgot to grab a picture, may edit it in later.
(Edit: hey look, its later:


Plan for the black is color shift paints so it looks like the flamer dude has swollen warp energy boils feeding the flamer, basically...)

And I got a final package from Mierce miniatures, their Ysian Bow Annik, got really enthused about maybe doing it as a 48 hour model...and then I went to put it together and oh dear.

This is after gluing on the head and separate hair. Those arms ended up just as fiddly as they looked, putting the bow on was a nightmare, and I almost set it aside semi-permanently, but eventually it did get assembled:

Anybody else trying to assemble it, watch out, the antler on the side with the high arm doesn't want to go in if you put the arm too far over, which you can probably see on mine.
Maybe some day I'll even be not annoyed enoigh with it to paint it!

Hope the annoyance wears off quickly, because that is a lovely model, despite the assembly challenges. Would love to see it with paint on

Maybe eventually Viterbi, kind of flailing wildly motivation and direction wise, and it still needs mold line removal and gap fill.

Looking like the Platypus will be the only model done for may this year, though I'm pretty much down to basing on the first 10 Basti archers, maybe a highlight pass on the orange brown.


Likewise, all the rats except the big gun are pretty much at the "screwed up enough I may as well start basing and call them done" stage.


Hopefull will have those cleared away, and can start thinking about next projects. Thinking some Typhon skirmishers for the challenge, being both red and foot troops, and possibly some more battletech. Also got a airbrush for my birthday, so gotta find a good project to play with that some. We'll see what happens.

Kinda been blah all week, but built up work still leaves some stuff done.
Based up the rats:


Just need to paint up (or find) a heavy weapons team to fill out a full squad painted of infanfry.

Dog is also done:



Also started some Typhon for WarGods, since I'm close to finishing the Basti, it'd be nice to have two armies, will probably try to have some painted for boots on the ground this month.

More minor progress this week, but a little better and have time off coming up, plus a schedule change back to days soon.

Both the typhon and the basti got a little progress. Playing with liquitex inks to the typhon's red:


Just cleaned up the skin on the basti, but hey progress.

Also bashed up some more rats. The two admech guys gives me a minimum squad when they're done, and the grenadier fills out my vets. Still need green stuff gap filler before paint. May also try to bundle them with some heavy weapon figures I found for touch ups, but no pics of them yet.


And finally figured that the Typhon were probably not getting done realistically with my workrate and the amount of month left (seriously, how is it halfway through June already?), so started a singleton berzerker for the challenge. Likely she'll end up joining my saga vikings if they ever get done. She has boots, they're both on the ground, I figure it counts!

Hopefully get her actually shading and such done this week, and maybe get the 2nd basti group done so I feel up to basing...
