Man, that knight looks great. Good to see some S&B minis as well!

The gold on the armor of the Belial is looking really good already!

Good work on both minis so far.

Absolutely stunning work on the Knight! Well worth the effort. I can't stop looking at the flames, but your weathering work is also beautiful.

I’d forgotten all about Skeletor and Beliail, unsurprisingly their shaping up fantastically! Skeletor almost looks like the bottom half of skin on his face is missing! Wouldn’t want to mess With him!

That Knight Finished model is awesome.
And the latest minis look to be continuing the awesome theme, I particularly like the chaplain conversion

Thank you very much, all of you. You are all very kind.

Mushroom Reaper is done, so it is varnish time for him and Optimus. In the meantime, a couple unrelated things occurred.





Had some magnets left over from the mass of Ronin I bought, so I went for this little luxury. I have not magnetized anything in a long time, but this seems to have worked out so far. And since I had putty out to fill the gaps on the autocannons, I broke this guy out of his pack:



Another random fantasy monster. Now he won't be stuck looking off to his left.

More soon, I hope. Thanks for looking!

Autocannon looks legit. So, will the beholder be looking right instead?

Magnets are the way to go now if your going to play 40K as things change pretty fast. Are you going to paint him up to match your others?
That beholder model looks cool, I have seen a few painted up already and if I still played D&D would pick one up for myself.

youwashock,

Your autocanons do not droop do they with the single magnet connection do they?

Thanks, guys!

MegaDave, I am thinking straight ahead for the main eye and all over the place for the eyestalks.

Yorkright, it will be the same green as the other Marines. I guess if I play again having the magnets will be good. For now it was just because I felt like it. All those extra arms felt like a waste.

Cap'n, they are pretty sturdy. Shook 'em around a bit and they didn't budge.

Bit late to the party, but that Knight is gorgeous! I agree with Fifty that those are easily some of the best hand painted flamer i've ever had the pleasure of seeing.

The work on the chaplain is very reminiscent of the old LotD sergeant. I forget his name. Is it based off him?

Thank you.

Wrapped up a couple models. First, Optimus Prime. Paint in a prime-arily prime-ary color scheme. Decals all have clear background, so be prepared for that if you decide to use them. I didn't, and as a result had to throw some white down as a backdrop real quick.





Fun model. Roll out.

Also finished the Reaper from Ganesha's Fighting' Fungi KS. This is a model I should have painted a long time ago, because I helped design it. When KS really exploded with projects like Sedition Wars, Relic Knights, and Kingdom Death, I always felt it would be cool to go in for one of the "vanity pledges" that allowed you to design a mini or some other element for the game. Usually a little too pricey. When Fighting' Fungi hit, seeing as how it was being run by one of my oldest friends, and the price didn't seem TOO high in that light and if I was going to do it, it seemed fitting to do it then, I pledged and submitted this guy, envisioned as a sort of mushroom boogeyman and battlefield specter, a mix of the Punisher and the Death Dealer, but a mushroom:



I then gave it a little thought and refined it for ease of casting and to add an executioner's hood look to the cap.



Andrea then gave it his 2-cents and drew it up so that it would match the look of all his other art in the book, resulting in this final look:



Now, that was in 2015. I received my minis, and promptly based and primed the Reaper because if any model was going to get painted, it should be that one first. And it sat. Until now. Not sure what happened there. But now he's done and ready to menace the dreams of all the poor mushroom children.





Sort of a milestone, I guess. As it turns out, after this I was asked to help design the Evil Dwarves for a future Ganesha KS, and should I ever get around to painting those, I will share the preliminary drawings, including stuff that sadly never got made.

2020 models completed: 8

Still working on Belial, the Dread, and the Legion. Progress hopefully soon. Thanks for looking!

Mushroom guy is scary .

Prime is optimal . Even with the decals being clear and a quick fix I’m having after school cartoon flashbacks.

The windows on Optimus Prime look as if they would have taken a lot of patience.

That mushroom is the first mushroom model I've ever liked, as opposed to thinking it looked like a gimmick.

Argh! Now I’m going to have to find somewhere in the UK to buy Optimus Prime. You’ve done a great job, really evoking the movie battle scene with Megatron, lots of shiny bits and some battle damage. Man that was a great movie!

Really cool background on the mushreaper, it’s pretty cool that you designed and had made your own character! Then you painted it like a BOSS! The lines on the back of his mushroom head being my favourite touch.

Digging how the Mushroom turned out, definitely should give mushroom kids nightmares! Optimus looks like he stepped out a cartoon, very well done.

The glass on prime really stands out and pops. IMO it makes the model. Great job.

Fungus guy is pretty sweet too. Great idea on the design.

That's excellent! Really enjoyed the background of the minis. Never knew designing minins like that was a thing. Interesting. Sadly I lack the ability to draw anything more complicated than a flower lol.

Nice knowing, that you designed the evil mushroom, that must be really cool painting your own creation and you did an excellent job.
Really love that optimus prime model, is it from a game or repainted toy?

The doomshroom of gloom is great, the hood fits like an executioner's axe to their victim's neck. Spiffing job.

Thank you very much, everyone. I am glad you like them. It was a cool experience.

Viterbi, Prime is from Wizkids' Deep Cuts line. They recently came out with four Transformers models, Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Starscream.
