Thanks Captain Brown, if I realize I'm missing something, I may take you up on that offer.

While the wife was fighting with the snotlings yesterday I made the final push and finished Kadal Lucu, the Zoat. Was at a loss at first with the pistol, it is very busy, but managed to get it to align with the rest of the colors. I feel the weathering on his armour is a bit too subtle, but was glad the sponge did the trick. And I hate that I'm not able to get little dots with the small brush, the purple specks in the were supposed to be bubbles. Ah well, maybe next time.
And because I like that model it got a final passover after finishing and I should have cleaned up all the smudges were other colors came onto the skin. Alas, once I look at the large pictures with no doubt I will find something I missed.
But overall quite happy and he is the perfect companion for Lord-Inquisitor Draxus.

Great job, Viterbi. I like how well it will fit in with your Imperial scheme without being overtly aligned, really good color choices there. The purple plating came out well but my favorite bit is the dark carapace on his back.

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors and Yorkright! The belly armour was Leadbelcher base, than Stormhost Silver so it is a bit lighter, than Blood Angels Red. After that a bit (nearly nonexistent on the brush) of Black Templar for the black streaks and finally some Ardcoat to get the shine.

Great job finishing off Zoaty-boy. As others have said he fits nicely with your imperial colours. The belly and dark carapace being great choices. The green on the gun works really well too. Back to Imperials next to cleanse the xenos from your brushes?

See, this what zoats were supposed to look like back in the late 80's; lots of IG players tried to paint them, few pulled it off. This is excellent work. And absolutely love the Infinity Stones glove- what a great Easter Egg on the table!

Thanks Meer_Cat! Glad you like his glove and yeah, the colors wouldn't be amiss in an 80's music video.

Finally finished the Assault Intercessors. They are easy enough models, but I seem to need a power armour break. October will be all ghosts and a bit of fantasy odds and ends.



More fun was Daemonifuge's elf companion. He was a lot of fun to paint, did nearly all of him today. Once I started it just came together. Although the gems on the swords aren't perfect after seeing the pics, need to patch them a bit up.






And I need some halfling scouts for my Mordheim Averlanders so the Hobbits get painted. All contrast so far.

Great job on Kyganil. I think the swords look great, only feedback on the gems would be a dot highlight and maybe some gloss varnish.

I like the one intercessor's blonde mohawk also!

Thanks gobert! It's always weird to paint such models where I don't have the paint scheme down and to decide how many colors I can get away without so they fit together.

Dingdong, the Hobbit's are done. I go for a quick and dirty job on my Mordheim minis and these are no exception. All told I needed 45 minutes (excluding drying time) to get them to this finish. They are a great advertisement for Contrast paints. Bluehat is my fave of them (although I realised after looking at GW's pics that I painted his neck in shirt colors and missed details on his coat ).

Thanks theCrowe! Unfortunately we played the game without the Stoic Arms pub, so they were a bit miffed at their first Mordheim outing

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors! Once I had a grip on the colors I wanted to use, he came along very fast. After having read the Daemonifuge comics I felt he shouldn't be too flashy although the purple and blue are bright enough to show he was a clown once

amazingturtles wrote:Nifty little hobbitses! I especially like the guy with the blue cap. Hobbits must have style


Thanks amazingturtles! Bluehat is the best! And after giving them all the same colors I felt he needed something snazzy.

The Hobbits made their first appearance in two Mordheim multiplayer games on Friday. They actually seem to prove useful with short range shooting, game 1 they managed with two shots to get my friend's ogre bodyguard to the ground so he couldn't charge. Second game Bluehat managed to survive (at first) multiple attacks by a trollslayer and in return managed to get him on the ground Unfortunately Bluehat needed a 6 in my turn to kill him, but failed. Then the dwarf stood up and beheaded the poor wee thing. But he survived the after game.

First and not successful outing came also by Harvey the Ogre. I bought a lot (in both senses of the word) of ogres a few month ago, but sold them on last month. But in doing so I did take a closer look and found this double-headed ogre conversion the previous owner had started, but didn't paint. So I kept him and some bits before selling the rest and now will use him as the ogre mercenary in Mordheim. Tried some new stuff with him, denim trousers did not come out well and tattoos need some work, but overall he was quite fun to paint. In-game he did of course nothing, apart from being very expensive

And got some more color on the Bladeguard Ancient, want him to be a very muted mini and did the robes in grey and the armour darkly washed silver like the Judiciar. And as you can see, the Judiciar had gets finally used, it fits this model much better in my opinion.

With the Judiciar head, the Ancient looks even more like a Stormcast. That said, I think it works pretty well. A different helm is always good to break up a Marines force. I like the coat color, too.
