Thanks guys!!

Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend... I ended up not being home for -ANY- of it! In addition to visiting some good friends (including breaking INTO and then OUT OF an escape room), the weekend culminated in a 10 mile canoe trip. mistakes were made.... 10 miles is a LONG WAY TO PADDLE!!! D:

All in all it was fun, even if it proved to me how poorly in shape I am... Summer project to be sure!

But in the mean time, Im back to work. Fists are getting details blacked out and are finally starting to look like something.

So hey, guys. Its been a while!

In short, I had a bit of burnout. Too much of one thing at once, too many irons in the fire, work being a pain... I dunno. Things just took way longer than I expected/wanted them to take.

Still working things out, but I think Im getting back to somewhat normal operations.



While I was gone, I did get some work done. Particularly, I finished the huge Imperial Fists army.








Lysander:







Terminator Assault Squad:



Tactical Squads:






Devastators:





=====================


I also painted up a quick character for a friend for his DND game. Nifty little Dark Sword miniature...







===================




So yeah! All caught up now.
Im hoping that Ill get back to more regular updates. Got a couple interesting little projects in the pipeline... But thats for another update!

Thanks guys.

Hah! Thanks you guys! Good to be back.


@theo: Fortunately my months of training on Monster Hunter World came in handy, and I was able to subdue the beast. Even made some of it into a new shirt :O

But thank ya kindly!

@mt: Haha! Well thanks all the same for your (heretical) praise!
Please accept this totally-not-a-vortex-missile token of our reciprocal appreciation!

@Nerd: Damn, deep praise from you!! I know the yellow marines have a special place in your heart. Happy to meet some pretty lofty expectations

@insaniak: Thank you!! My only regret is that it's not mine to keep! Heh, one day~~ Glad you like.

@Lorek: Cheers, boss. And I know. Self-care is important.

@Gits: Why, Gits, Im flattered you noticed
Hehe, but really, thanks. She was a learning experience as far as skintone went. First mini I painted using what I learned at Adepticon. Base with a dark dark brown, and glaze up from there all smooth like.

================

First project after the fists is a simple one. Bunch of bases for my own marines!
If you remember, my chosen scheme is split white/turquoise, so lots of cold colors. What better counterpoint to this than some yellow desert! These are all Secret Weapon Miniatures bases. The "lava" ones I picked up to add visual interest to the group. I was trying for a Yellowstone-esque bubbling mud look, but may have gone just a little too yellow... The colors are actually much more towards the earthy side than these pictures make them seem...



Almost done with them, just need to ring them (im thinking black), then dusting them with SWM pigments to give them that added level of dryness.

Hell yeah i've a soft spot for those yellow bastards! and you've done them justice for sure! it's great to see your blog getting some love again! we've missed you but totally understand the behind the scenes feelings too, i'm in a similar boat myself but have kind of subdued my lust for painting yellow and then red by painting a red and yellow army :-)

what's next for you dude!?

Had the day off on Wednesday and knocked out a single mini commission for one of my dnd players (yep! The very same one as the Dragon and Rogue xD). This one is a Dark Sword miniature, and I believe the character is going to be an Elven Ranger:








I also started a pair of other new projects- one business (of course), and one personal ( What!?! ).

For business, we have something from Creature Caster- The Lady of Arcana. This one goes to Solar Lion:



And on the personal front, I started to lay down some colors on my own Marines Errant! Nothing extreme at the moment, just the initial layers of white, but hey! Progress is progress





Thanks for reading, guys!

Crikey its been hot lately...
I mean dang! I live in the basement with fans going, and lately its been so hot and humid that I just cant sit down to focus on painting!

Marines Errant did get a little more done. Just the Turquoise with a black wash to shade it... plenty still to do.



Bit of an interesting development the past week. Privateer is looking for a painter again, so why not toss my hat in the ring... Maybe send in another mini like I did the first time I applied, haha.

This is a convention exclusive mini called "Druids Gone Wilder!"
Im really enjoying how it paints up.






Hopefully I can get this out to them for consideration sometime early next week... Lots to do!!

Hey guys. Im not dead yet.

The last few months have been pretty crappy all told... Work was really busy with a number of new directives for the holiday season (many conflicting, naturally!), so have had very little time to do anything. The past tense here is important, for you see a week before Thanksgiving Sears saw fit to lay off half of my team... And you see where this is going. Bonus, though, I have more spare time now...

Add that "fun" to the usual holiday stuff and you have the makings of not much getting done over November and December. Honestly didn't have the drive to do a lot what with everything going on, but have been trying. Slowly getting into the swing.


On the painting front, things have progressed, albeit slowly. Got a few things done, started a few more...

One project I completed was the Hordes convention mini from a few years back. Fun mini, and good skin practice. Still could do with some work, but all is a learning experience...







I also completed a commander and assault squad for my Marines Errant. The resin bitz for the robot legs and the jump packs were a bit rough, unfortunately. Didn't notice with the raw resin, but man these casts are rough... It looks like the masters were 3D prints, and there's a fair bit of stepping visible that wasn't cleaned up. Unfortunate, but hopefully it doesn't show too much.

Shoulder iconography is another 3D printed product, though from Pop Goes the Monkey via Shapeways. Really sharp prints, and they fit on to the shoulder pads perfectly. Sure beats freehanding the symbols.

And naturally, the white is a pain in the ass to paint! Hah.



































============================


In other news, Im back to full-time commissions (or attempting to, at least).
Working on a number of other projects including several single character minis and an Imperial Fist army for a previous client. As it stands now, everything save for a Venator is painted with a yellow gradient. (Side note, when I get to painting the Venator, I've a small story to share... It was an adventure and a half getting a replacement part....)


Subassemblies primed:



And then sprayed yellow. This is the second stage, an Ochre Yellow that is applied over a dark tan color.



The process on a Contemptor-
Primed


Then the Ochre over dark tan:


And then some highlights with a mix of Palamino Gold from Reaper and Vallejo Ivory. After this, everything gets a wash of soft tone.




And a few other shots of other parts of the army:








So yeah. Thats the first update of the new year. Hope to be around a little more in the future.

Happy 2019, guys.
