Great work on the captain, really like the purple color of the cloak. Perhaps a foreshadowing of their chaos/Cthulhu inspired heritage. At least in my mind.

Agreed, excellent job on Dantius. I really like the way the trifecta of white, purple and red makes the miniature pop. Good work on the LOTR miniatures as well.

Fantastic purple on the Son there. That could make an awesome color scheme. Great stuff here. Really impressive highlighting and shading skills across the board.

Cheers for all the kind words, folks!

I seem, like an off-brand Picasso, to be stuck painting a lot of the same colours at the minute! Today's mini is another in teal and purple, after many, many attempted other Kharadron schemes. I love the idea of steampunk sky-pirate dwarves, but these minis are a surprisingly fiddly to paint and it took me what felt like forever to get this one in a state I was happy with. Got the rest of the gang to do, hopefully they'll be slightly quicker.


Pretty happy with how he's come out though, while with AoS stuff I tend towards a bit of a brighter, cleaner style, I really wanted this guy to feel battered and rugged, a pirate down on his luck.

More Underworlds coming soon, I've got the Sylvaneth and some Nighthaunts almost finished. In the mean time, thanks for looking, any thoughts welcome!

Your teal and purple period is making for some great looking minis, this guy really exudes character.

What a great model. And with such a delectably gritty paintjob. Love it.

Ta guys! I do really like the model itself, it's exactly the kind of mad that AoS facilitates so well.

Really liking that kharadron. Very cool selection of colors.

Another dwarf today, though tragically sans balloon. Probably the busiest model in the Overlords set, but a fun one to play with some metallic weathering while carrying over the same colour scheme from the boss man.


Hope to have the rest of the gang done shortly, and to finish and photograph the Sylvaneth and Nighthaunt warbands as well. Also got something very different indeed coming up shortly, so stay tuned for that.

In the mean time, thanks for looking! Any thoughts welcome!

Hmm. It's very good, but I have a question: is that skin or a mask by the uncovered eye? I think a little warm skin tone would sit nicely to balance it out.

As per the sculpt, it's a full face mask with a lens like a SM helmet. Doesn't really come across in the pics, but there's an elevated ridge around the eye itself, it'd look really odd painted as skin.

I do think that the full-face masks are probably the weaker point of the Kharadron aesthetic, as it doesn't leave any opportunity for adding a dash of skin tone to the palette, but it'd look really weird to paint any of the mask areas as skin because in the flesh (no pun intended! ) the mask detail is all very pronounced and raised. It'd just look like they'd glued some skin to the outside of their armour, sadly...

Gotcha. Makes sense. Mind you, skin masks...

I'm intrigued and looking forward to it.

I love this color scheme and I really like what you did with the metallics, particularly the brownish tones and the striations. Also, I think it worth mentioning that the base is fantastic, mind sharing a bit about how you made it?

Hah, I can't take credit for the bases, all the Warhammer Underworlds stuff has really nice sculpted bases.

Great work on the KO so far, that scheme works really well. I'm also digging your painting style, it's sort of sketchy but also really accurate. Makes me think of nice concept art pieces.
