From what could be viewed great work, I believe I saw you post these on coolmini as well?

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

@Fantasybob: I don't mind Photobucket's bandwidth limitations. It's free after all and works perfectly fine for me (unless they change the interface AGAIN like they do like every two months or so). Anyway, it loads fairly quickly, which probably is the most important thing to me.

@Empchild: Yup, I post them on several forums so it's not unlikely that you stumble across this army once in a while. (thanks for commenting on both threads by the way)

Me, being a genius amongst men, didn't take proper notes on how I painted the first squad of Wolf Scouts but I'm pretty sure I know how I did what. Let's hope it's accurate.

There is something decicdely 'off' about that wolf lord's pose. Not sure what it is. That being said, spectacular 'grim' paintjob on the wolves. very nice. I especially like the face on the Wolf lord almost 'fey' looking.

@Sageheart: Thanks.

@wolfshadow: Cheers. The Wolf Lord's head is one from the old SW accessory sprue which were somewhat finer (I could rave on and on about the switch to software-sculpted plastic miniatures :p ); I absolutely share the impression of the elven-looking face. A bit lee van cleef there. Anyay, maybe the second picture will help clarify what you deem "off" with the model. The sculptor does a very good job overall (he also designed the mission markers and all that) but this arm looks off indeed.

@iz a kitty: Thanks muchly. The only trick behind these blades is just an airbrush and masking tape/green stuff basically.


Update!

Wolf Scouts:

I got what was throwing me off: The pelt, and the positioning of the hand on the TH. For a riding model, wouldnt the grip be lower on the haft of the hammer?

The pelt on the shoulders, specifically the shape of the head seems more bearish than wolfish to me. Could be the angle though.

Regardless of scullpt details, great paintjob.

Agreed, the gold on the WL is excellent. The pelt however does just look a small bear has grabbed him unaware.

As for the arm the wrist's soft armour is too long and extended, it should naturally finish after the plate armour on the wrist. Atm his hand/wrist is as long as his forearm.

@Xenon: Thanks muchly.

@wolfshadow: Thanks for your comment. The position of the hand looks alright to me (taking into account that nobody could hold a giant hammer like that in one hand and still look nonchalantly to the side ). The thing about the pelt is that it is indeed a Bear. I think it's a nice change from the ridiculous number of wolf pelts and skulls these guys drag around on their armour.

@Lennysmash: Hehe, yes, the bear looks a bit like he's hugging him from behind and just fell asleep on his back or somehting. Yup, the arm is a bit off on this one. Looks a bit like he's hiding a tentacle in there.

@dantay_xv: He's very much custom-built. I haven't built him myself but if you like, I can customize an armoured mini for you in that fashion. Just drop me a PM if you're interested in my services for converting/painting something for you.


Alright, there's a little update on the second bunch of WG terminators:


Hope I get enough done to give you another update by tonight.

Wolf Lord finished:







Five more Terminators finished (still need snow on their bases though):





Next up: The Wolflord's Thunderwolf and Wolf Scouts.

As for further future plans:
1.) Seer Council on Jetbikes. Sadly just a relatively low-level paintjob but I'm looking forward to seeing the miniatures. Not sure when exactly this one will actually show up though.

2.) Another Step-by-Step Painting Guide I have been announcing for some time now. I'm trying to get it done by the holidays at the latest. The task is a little daunting because Other than the Blackguard Musician, it's a miniature I have no complete recipe prepared for and it just takes a long time to do this kind of thing. But it should be good, I'm still looking somewhat forward to it.

3.) Death Korps commission is fixed now but probably won't commence b efore the holidays. Like all commissions. I have about three or four commissions lined up for "early January" if nobody bails out.

4.) Finishing Space Hulk, the Khornies and the Nightbringer.

Alright, that's it for now, see you later!



edit: A-HA! Update!





I have to admit that the shin armour in the first picture doesn't look just as awesome in real life as it does in the picture. I mean, I blended it smoothly and all but it's also partly freaky lamp reflection. Didn't take another shot just because I love how it looks in the picture. I need to fancy the armour on the wolf up anyway so I didn't have to do it perfect this time around.

Absolutely beautiful. Consider me subscribed- not a fan of SWs, but the variation color looks fantastic. I can also use inspiration for a long-overdue airbrush purchase in the near future...

By the way, where'd you get those bigass wolv... nevermind.

Keep up the good work!

Holy cow, it's highest time for an update in here!


First off, sorry for the lack of updates lately. In the past weeks I wrote many e-mails, worked on a project I can't post yet but plan to post during the holidays which took a lot of time to do, Finished a few older things of the Sci-Fi kind and so on. There's sad news as well - the Chaos Dwarfs commission guy isn't reporting back. Last thing I heard was something like "perfect, I'll post the miniatures tomorrow" and that's it. Nothing since then. I still hope that this thing is happening and I hope the guy's fine.


On a different note, here's something new I'm doing:



Pretty much the whole Dwarfs range by Dwarf Tales miniatures. Excellent miniatures of which you may have seen two already in the Mortheim warband I did earlier this year. I'm painting these for a German video broadcast called Magabotato. It's a weekly show about tabletop gaming and everything surrounding that. They're doing a new episode each week and get up to five thousand views per episode.

Make sure you have a look at their videos. Here is a link to their youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/Magabotato

First off, new pictures of the Wolf Lord:






The "ROLF"-looking runes on the wolf's armour didn't really please a lot of people so those were changed. Plus, I added some more detailling to the wolf's armour and redid the base a little bit. Next thing on my list: add snow.

I'm also currently doing four more Rhinos/Razorbacks so the Long Fangs and the Wolf Guard don't have to walk around on their paws:











Here's the more fancied-up Rhino of the Wolf Guard, also showing the Razorback version:








Stormbolters for the Rhino versions and other gubbinz are also mostly done. The Rhinos need some more dirtying up and weathering and the tracks need to be finished. That's it then.

See you soon!

The gold needs some neatening up in places but I think I'm getting there.


On a different note, I took another stab at the Nightbringer. As you may remember, I'm having a hard time with this guy but I might be on to something now that I added a third colour:



What do you think?

The grey's on the space wolves are awesome! I love the darker spin on them, gives them more of a nordic/barbaric feeling for sure! The silver on your lightning claws is great! How did you do that?

For the wolf lord, +1 more for the bear comment but the thing that really threw me off was how far back his torso was on his hips.. his abdomen is way back on it. Especially with his lean backwards once mounted.

The painting however is incredible!

@Manchu: Hehe, thanks for the compliment. They are very nice minis indeed, even though one or two of them seem to have weird proportions to me, being used to giant feet and hands.

@Cosmic: Yes indeed you have to follow this thread! Thanks for the comment. Hope you subscribe.

@Monkeh: Thanks for your reply. The silver is just plain old Boltgun metal, a few mixes of Boltgun Metal and black and some mithril. About the Wolf Lord - yeah, the model has a few "off" bits (hips as you said, right arm, etc.). I didn't convert/sculpt the guy but overall I like the mini and along with his wolf, he looks spectacular.

@iior: Cheers. Glad you like the freehand there.

Seems like I ran out of bandwidth earlier than expected this month. I reuploaded the latest pictures somewhere else.



Hope you all are having great holidays and enjoy them with family and friends!

Alright, I hope all of you had a nice start on 2011. Here's this year's first update!


My second Step-by-Step painting guide just went online. My first one a few months ago was a load of work but this one goes way beyond what I did in the first one.

It's an in-depth description on how I painted the latest incarnation of Ultramarines Captain Sicarius and the word file is close to 50 pages including pictures. Here is the finished piece:





If you're interested how this paintjob came to be, follow the link to the whole thing over at my blog on tabletopgeeks:

CLICK ME

Feel free to have a look and let me know if you like it or not.



Apart from that, a little update on them Dwarfs:



...I admit, not all that much has happened. My goal is to finish these guy by the fifth so I can make sure they have enough time to get delivered to magabotato before the shooting takes place. :cool:


And now prepare for weird and whimsical wonders when (due to size comparison request) the most mischievous and prone-to-squabbling front rank since Ruglud's Orcs disbanded - woahahahahaahahahahelcome the size comparison brigade, ho-ho-ho-ho:

I
grabbed a few miniatures from popular ranges and hope that you can estimate the size of the Dwarfs judging from those.

....aaand yes, the Dwarf in the left IS actually telling the Space Marine to "Be square or be square", hah-hah-hah. Oh, for fun...

Not all that much new at first glance because the details are what's left so a lot of pouches mainly, some leather belts and so on to paint.


Just out of curiosity - what do you like better: Trolls, Ogres and Minotaurs or Rincewind, Sam Vimes and Twoflower?

I love the nightbringer, and your other models!

only thing i would want to see different is with the dwarfs. I love the ones without helmets, but the ones that are all armored up I feel like the breads get lost in the gold armor. I would rather they have brighter breads that stand out, def since they are such a defining feature of that race!
