Apologies, got sidetracked by the Microsoft 10,000 Reward points for Gamerscore this month. Will reply to the above... soon... still alive though.

For now, I'm hurrying to finish my Mandrake. Of course, I haven't undercoated the base yet and it's raining - in summer!

Should get a chance to prepare replies, step by steps etc after the 31st January deadline....

That's a great subtle glow around his eyes, and the hair is a nice, dirty, stained white color. I imagine hygiene is not a priority on the battlefield!

Made it!


Drukhari Mandrake. (new faction, new material-finecast)

Definitely a new faction (first Drukhari model). While my first painted finecast material, I'm not sure that made much difference at all. Black was challenging as always, although not new. Having mainly painted Orks and the occasional Space Marine, the size of the model and the details felt new. Those torso grooves were also challenging - I tried a new technique to gradually build up highly diluted greens and yellows to try an let the paint follow the contours rather than me, to varying success. Process and pics to follow eventually...

Getting back to my neglected comments...

@CommissarKhaine: Thankfully the Mandrake had no missing details, and the only "pin prick" bubbles were out of sight on the bottom. You will be doing very well if you can manage to get me to start a squeaky waagh!! offfshoot with a vehicle .

@gobert: I think my subconcious hasn't quite got my hobby goal - 2 purchased, one complete... Your good luck wishes were obviously on target - thanks!

@Ezki: Thanks. The year is off to a slow start, but not unsalvageable yet .

@Gitsplitta: Are you missing a word there - or do you think I look like a Mandrake?

@tzurk: So, the "red cloth" is actually meant to be "skin". The GW website "How to Paint: Mandrakes" I think is a "bit" inaccurate - I didn't follow their "Sea Green" for the black, I shouldn't have followed their "Medium Flesh" for the skin. It ended up being, perhaps a bit more "fresh" than I was going for, and makes the contrast with the cord less obvious.

@endtransmission: Thanks. I paint one miniature this month, you paint... several dozen?

@Don Qui Hotep: Yeah, I used the same technique for the eye as for the torso grooves. I usually don't like using Nuln oil on white/grey, but it didn't come out too bad this time around.

Catchya,
Arakasi

Ahh of course - I can see it now! My bad for missing it the first time around it looks great all the same. Very nice palette on the guy on the whole.

I think you've pulled off the green really well, particularly on the flame in his hand where the colour change is big and bold.

The base looks great too, the way you've painted those details really makes the mini come to life.

Don't worry tzurk - there is no wrong in how you perceive something subject to light in both its capture and display. I was particularly happy with how the hand flame came out.

    Great job on the catcher. I especially like the tone of blue and the eye-catching yellow details. The dappled pattern on his uniform breaks up the shape in an interesting way.

    You are too kind. Bold colours was what I was going for, so I am glad that came through.

    You are also too kind.
    gobert wrote:The catcher looks great, especially for a “rush” job. The yellow on his helmet and ball are great
    I actually stripped and repainted him during that month - because the first time I mistakenly started with the blue, and didn't realise I had the Averland Sunset base paint. This went a long way to making the yellow presentable.

    Thanks. Similiar to another entrant that month, this was an attempt at an Australian indigenous uniform (which our Australian Football League has a specific round for).

    The funny thing was, the chalk line was the easiest to do! I watched a video on it, basically coat the edge of a popsicle stick in White Scar and press down.

    The bone is the only finished part, and took the bulk of my time.
    gobert wrote:Very nice transitions in the Terminator, what’s left to finish? The Stormboy looks fun, his explosives safety needs work though I feel!
    Apart from the bone, everything else is just based and washed - so a whole lot of highlighting left to do. Orks, explosives, safety - one of these doesn't belong (and it's not explosives...)

    Brief progress catchup - below you can see the Ork Stormboy rebased on 32mm with some cog parts and my standard basing, before and after Mechanicus Standard Grey undercoat:

    I'll need to go a bit thicker with the liquid greenstuff in future I expect.

    Thank you for all of the comments - I do appreciate it. I have a stack of photos and thoughts to upload for the Mandrake, Catcher and Terminator - but - I'm finding if I wait to do them in order, I just can't find the time and/or motivation - and in the meantime I'm not giving/receiving feedback on current work - so I'm going to try posting something more regularly and worry about filling in the blanks later - or when it makes sense to the discussion at hand.

    I always loved Stormboyz, even if they never performed as well as I would have liked. Is he going to be brown, or is that the basecoat for green?
