Christmas ork is looking good. It looks like there is something written on the shoulder guard, does it say something?

Yeah, it says HO HO HO! but unfortunately I misjudged how much available space I had so the last ho is a bit crammed.

Chaos cultist. I went for a military green main colour as I imagine all gas masks in this colour. The rest of the model I painted in dreary, non vibrant colours as cultists are people that don't really want to be noticed. The eye lenses were painted red for maximum contrast, and to draw the eye to the face. Finaly the base was covered in black and grey gravel and pools of drty waste water to make it look like he is in an enviroment that requires a gas mask and to not take the focus away from the model.


Also here is a little WIP of a 54mm scale project, first time painting this scale. Will soon be painting my first 75mm model as well, a horse by El Greco miniatures as a christmas present for my dad, it will represent his much love childhood horse Dragan.

Just a quick WIP of a cultist. Usually I wouldn't make a post for a half completed puny cultist, but I think that he looks pretty cool even now. I admit that I should have used a brighter highlight though, all that blending and it barely shows. I'm pretty proud of how the green shadows turned out though. This is the first mostly naked human model I've painted and I've learned a lot about painting skin when painting it.

Here is the finished cultist. I brightened up the highlights on the skin with a glaze and it worked like a charm. I should have thinned the glaze a bit more though, it made the transitionn slightly less smooth in some places. For the pants and the boots I tried to get a worn out effect, but I think I only managed to do it properly on the boots. I really like how the leather turned out. For the metal parts I painted them in chainmail and then used layers of black wash all the way to pure black. I think it worked out great both on the pistol and the blade, but you can see the effect more easily on the blade.

Sorry for the long wait. I painted a comission of two 3d printed models for DnD made by Hero forge. Basicaly you make your adventurer on their site and they print it out for you. While the creation process is very fun, the price is way too high and the models aren't very good. You can clearly see that they were 3d printed upon a closer look. For now I have the pictures for only one guy. I delivered them to the customer pretty much as soon as I was done with them, so I didn't have much time to take good pictures. I'll put them up once I tweak the brightness just so you can get a good look at the model. For now here is the halfling mage:

I finished this geenstealer using only Instar paints. I have been hired by the paint manufacturer, Supershandy, to paint this model and a few others using exclusively his paints so he can upload examples of what his paints can do onto his website and to give you and him some feedback.

Venturing into 54mm scale waters. A dark background would work much better for this model, since it's meant to be 2 pirates in a barrel at night with a lamp, but the pictures simply turn out better with a white background. If anyone has the photoshop skills to put a moonlit ocean as the backround I'd be grateful.

Finished another model with instar paints, this time a Tau Fire Warrior. This model turned out great, although I would change a few things if I were to do it all over again. I would probbably make the backpack yellow and brown, and not blue. I would also weather the rifle at least a little bit.

More of the instar painted stuff. Painted my first infinity model, and I have to say it's a completely different experience. Going to have to practice more on those kinds of models to get better.

I forget the technical term at the moment, but I'm really impressed with how you painted the lantern and its light hitting various parts of your pirate model. I also really like the idea had of the medieval style art on the tank with the skeletons walking with a space marine and a bishop.

Thanks! I'll be painting some Kingdom Death: Monster models for a friend of mine eventually, so you'll get to see me do Object source lighting again in the future, though I'll take a slightly different approach as I did learn a few things about it along the way to make it better.

First of three chaos marines for this month's unoffical painting challenge. Now that I've got the colour scheme figured out the other guys should turn out better and be easier to paint. It's been a very challenging paintjob because of the crowdedness of the sculpt and the fact that his line doesn't have a bright silver yet, so the metal had to be done in NMM.

Those models really show the amount of time and effort you put into painting them. As for what to paint next, what are the options? Do you have any more infinity models to do?

Unfortunately the pilot is the only infinity model I have. It was a Christmas present from my brother, he's trying to get me to play it, but I'm pretty adamant about not buying more stuff before I paint what I already have. I've got some warmachine stuff I could paint. I could finish te blood bowl team I started painting. A few old crysis suits. A friend of mine has Kingdom death monster and I intend on painting some models for him as a favour. Lastly I recently won a giveaway of a model intended for an RPG, it's some sort of tribal African girl, but I don't know when it's going to arrive.

Not buying more stuff before painting what you have is admirable, something many of us should try to follow better than we do. My vote is for crysis suits or the kingdom death monster.

I was going to paint some KDM like you suggested, but this months' unofficial painting challenge theme didn't really reflect those models, so I went with a menoth cinerator, sorry!
Not buying more stuff isn't as admirable as you might think, since I can't really afford a lot of models anyway, and also I haven't really played a game of anything tabletop related in a long time since I also refuse to play with an unpainted army, whilst at the same time trying to paint every model to a high standard .
Here are the WIP pics. The NMM gold turned out great, the silver, not so much. I'll have to redo it into steel. I'll also have to find a way to get rid of the gloss from the purple.
What do you guys think of the white? Do you register the model as white? That's always tricky since the base colour is actually a bright grey.

Hey it's no problem . It was only a suggestion, you should paint what you want to. I don't think either of us knew what this month's unofficial painting challenge would be. The model is looking cool, and to my eye it looks silver, but a very light white-ish silver.

WIP, quick pic. Painted the first arm. Glazing instead of wet blending the white produced much better transitions. That said the highlight transitions were much better, from now on I will use 2 shades instead of one. Also I just now noticed that I missed a gem, will get right on it.

WIP of a second cinerator. Just a quick pic, so the picture quality isn't the greatest. Did a little more work on the base this time. I used a brighter mid colour this time, a bit too bright in my oppinion.

Done. I hope you like it. I rushed a few things, but overall the model came out pretty good. Overall i have a much better idea of how to paint white than I did before. Also I learned that warmachine sculpts are pretty bad. Tons of mould lines in places that are difficult to reach and straight up unforgivable mistakes that make it difficult to determine what you're even looking at.

Finally got around to painting dragan the horse, I bought it as a present for my dads' birthday. It is supposed to represent his dear childhood horse, Dragan. I tried to simulate horse hair as best I could, and I think I did pretty well. Unfortunatley I didn't manage to take pictures that truly capture how the model looks like in real life, as can often be the case for completely white models. Now I just need to get a plinth and mount him so he can be displayed.

I painted this model as an experiment on how to paint a model at night. I have, unfortunately, completely failed, but I think I learned a few valuable lessons:
1. Start with a mix of your shadow colour and your base colour, rather than your base colour
2. Use your base colour as your "highlight"
3. A much larger portion of the model should be covered in shadow
4. Use a different shade of dark blue for the shadow (on the pallete the paint looked much more blue and much less purple than it does on the model)

This time I think I nailed it. The fire is awful in every way, it's too dark and was clearly sculpted by a 2 year old (me), but I belive I have managed to create a sense of darkness and that's what the core of this project was. Your thoughts? Did I succed or am I just imagining things?
