Thank you very much once again everyone! As always, I greatly appreciate the comments

Just kidding. But lately I have been keen on doing really weathered stuff.

I want to build a Krieg army now. "Fix bayonets! Bodies to the front! Life is cheap, Machinery is not!"

Seriously, your display board is super cool looking, and all those gas-masked soldiers running around it and pouring fire into no man's land look really fantastic.

Exalted.

Thank you kindly! I'm glad that the music worked so well
The aesthetics of the Death Korps of Krieg is something I've always found really cool. What was once a distant dream, has become a full army with one kit at a time over the better part of a decade.

Also, +1 on the Sabaton reference! Great song, that.

Thank you Bellerophon! Every time I hear a Sabaton song, I'm happy if I'm not browsing Forge World. My wallet would not survive it.


Been jumping a bit from one project to another.

Decided to build the MDF terrain pieces I ordered before Christmas for Necromunda.
I had one labyrinth kit, one kit of random crates, one sushi bar and a collection of stairs

The kits had so many small pieces! But it was quite pleasing to assemble the laser cut bits, as the measurements were really accurate.
These bits are only for the labyrinth.


Some of the labyrinth pieces.
It was a cool surprise, that these are attachable to each other. Did not know that prior to ordering them.


Pretty much all of the stuff.


It took me a couple of days just to glue these things together.
Quite a bit of work.

I tried painting a few pieces, but quickly noticed that the MDF stuff really likes to drink paint. No wonder, as it's mostly sawdust.
I should try out filler spray, or try some other solvent. Heard that a mix of water and PVA glue might work, but the final result might not be the best.

They are fine as is, but I would like some rusty metals and dirty water streaks

As I was in build mode anyway, I decided to finally build the last base for my friend's Knight Castellan. It's the fifth base I did for that army, and I suspect more is to come!


Used some of the leftover pieces from the MDF kits.
The supporting bits etc. proved to be quite good basing material.

A quick paintjob and it was done!




Quite happy how it turned out.


My friend (to whom I made the bases) wiped the dust from his 3D printer once again. Before printing, it requires some new bearings and other parts.
When he acquired it a couple of years ago, we talked about printing some props and small terrain pieces. I sent him some of my old 3D models back then, but they were not very good for printing.

Used to do some 3D modelling during my studies.
I studied video game development, but have since became a software developer, as is the story for many of us. Maybe some day.
Anyway, decided to start rehearsing some modelling once more.
Had to learn using a new software, as my student license for the one I used before had expired.
I have only ever known the basics, but it's a good start.

Practiced doing a couple of simple props:


We will print these when the printer is up and running again.

Will most likely try to do some more complex props later on, when I have had enough practice.
One could also buy 3D models of all kinds, but what's the fun in that?

So yeah, been jumping from one project to another during the last week or so.
Will most likely keep doing that for a while, as my inspiration seems to shift quite frequently right now.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, that's some very nice MDF for necromunda, the detail is great!

The base is looking sweet too, it painted up very well. Best of luck with the 3D printing too, I'm considering buying one for myself more and more.

Ezki,

For wood terrain I would recommend a proper primer coat or two first (not GW or model sprays, but the cans from a building supply or paint shop). That will seal the wood and prevent it soaking up you paint.

Hope that helps,

Thank you for the comments!

My friend is still waiting for the parts for his printer, but when they arrive, we will do a few test prints.
If they succeed well enough, it's time to practice some more 3D modelling!

Captain Brown: Thank you for the tips. I will give that a shot next.


A bit of a long one coming up:


So yeah, my attention span has been really short over the last few weeks and my focus has been jumping from one project to another, more so than usually.
A full year of remote working and very similar days (wake up, sit on my desk and work, cook something, get back on my desk to play / paint / whatever, spend some time with the missus, go to sleep) tends to get to get a little bit boring.
For that reason I have started working on quite a few different projects. Some of them are related to miniatures, while some to my other hobbies and such. I have for example started giving driving lessons to my sister (with an Volvo that is older than me of course), worked more on my hobby car and as shown earlier, picked up 3D modelling again.

On the miniature side of things, I have gotten so many ideas that I can't even keep count.
My inspiration shifts daily, sometimes even hourly. I have been browsing a lot of Pinterest and whenever I see a new cool picture I act like a kid in a candy store: "I just really have to have this and that miniature and convert somehow". One moment I'm searching for Dark Eldar color schemes, until I see a glimpse of a cool dieselpunk artwork and start thinking about Death Korps of Krieg. I mean, it's good to have a ton of ideas, but I just gotta try to pick one miniature project at a time and finish that

So I'm sorry in advance: this blog might be a bit random for the next couple of months or more.


Right, that's out of the way.
To the real stuff.

Firstly, I built some of the new(ish) Escher gangers, and primed them together with the older Goliaths I had laying around.
The most keen eyed of you will notice a few Dark Eldar models as well. More on that later.



I have been meaning to quickly paint the Goliath gangers to be borrowed if any of my friends who are not playing Necromunda would like to try it.
I could also use them as an "NPC" gang in the campaign, if we ever get that far..

Anyhow, I thought of a color scheme and figured it would take me a couple of nights to paint them up. Decided that I would cut corners where ever I could and just get them done as quickly as I can (at the same time practicing speed painting).
Well, they seemed to take forever. I just can't seem to shake the fear of the camera and can't leave certain small details unnoticed
Towards the final steps, I was not enjoying painting these very much anymore as they were supposed to be a quick palette cleanser, so I half forcibly rushed them to completion. Even the pictures are quite lazy this time around.
I'm quite a slow painter, but these were still surprisingly fast. I'd say the total time was a little over an hour per ganger.






Over the course of this blog, I have been talking about restarting my Dark Eldar army many many times. This thread actually started with some of them back in 2012 (some of the pictures are still up I guess).
2017 I converted some wyches, but never painted them. Two years later, I converted and painted the Succubus.
I have reiterated quite a few different color schemes in my head and shown some of them here as well. The project has always came to a halt when I could not come up with a scheme, and something more interesting has come up.
But finally as the new Codex is in the horizon, the urge to play with the spiky space elves has emerged!
I decided that the scheme has to be decided for once and for all.

Here are some of the test miniatures I have done. Some of them were done when I last posted them (last autumn I think), and some are more recent.
The order is from left to right, ending to the most recent one.


First time I mentioned getting back to these guys, I talked about the idea of them being "space vampires" or something of the sort.
The idea got lost somewhere along the way, but has once more risen it's head.
Half a year ago, I was quite dead set on painting these purple with a similar palette to my current Eldar army. However, some inspiring artworks and brainstorming led me once again back to my original idea.

I enjoy red color schemes, and I thought mixing red, black and gold (on characters) would embody the stereotypical vampire / "Von Carstein" style look.
I realized that many of the things I tried were not very original or happened to be the exact colors of an existing Kabal, so I iterated with the trim colors a bit.
Going with the red color scheme also complements the Succubus that is already painted, and the color scheme I originally thought for the converted Wyches.

Here is the last model with one of the iterations.
I also tried yellow on the shoulder pads, but did not like it at all.


In the end, I toned the colors down a bit and was quite pleased with the red and black look of the final iteration.
I will have to push the contrast a bit thought and paint the rest of the details, but I quite like it.


Trying to go with a scheme, that is fairly quick to paint.
With so many troops to repaint, this time I'm definitely trying to go with the tabletop in mind rather than the close up pictures

Got to try and keep my focus on these guys for a bit. Will most likely do other stuff here and there though (definitely will).


Just to finish off:

for the last couple of days, we have been building a new gaming table for our game room:







Still needs to be sanded and stained, but it works pretty well and is really sturdy.

Thank you for looking!
More to come soon enough I hope!

Interesting update Ezki. The table looks really sturdy, just missing some drinks holders and dice trays . The Dark Eldar scheme looks great, I like their extreme edge highlighting, though it tends to push things beyond table top standard. I look forward to seeing them progress

Very impressed by how fast you worked through those Goliath models, they're so packed with detail and you've gotten amazing results.

Digging the vamp dark eldar scheme, I think it'll translate well to the raiders and venoms in the future.

Great table too, it looks the business!

Thank you guys! As always, I really appreciate the comments

Glad you liked the Goliaths, even though the paint job on them is not my favorite.
Then again, the artist is always their own worst critic.

gobert: Thank you gobert! Drink holders and dice trays would be a good idea! Need to think about that when we get to the finishing stages.
You are correct that the edge highlighting is pushing it a bit and definitely the step that takes the longest, but in my mind their armor just screams for it

DJJazzyJeff: Thanks! Looking forward to that

Ragsta: Thank you very much Ragsta! I'm flattered that the sentinels have caught attention across the web, truly a hobby goal achieved.
Well, I would not call it speed painting per se, but for my usually very slow pace they were rather quick.


First batch of Kabalite Warriors done (except for the bases)!






I'm quite happy with the color scheme so far.
It is fairly quick to paint them this way, if only i can stay away from trying to put too much time into every little detail.
As stated, I'm going with the tabletop in mind: bright highlights, contrasting colors and only base colors on the "irrelevant" bits.

Painting the highlights definitely takes the longest, but even that is not that bad. Doing them was actually quite pleasing, and you get a pretty good rhythm to it.

The close ups show the harshness of some of the details.
And I think I should avoid using heads without helmets on these troop units
This one was the "prettiest", the other faces look a bit weird. Maybe I should finally give the contrast paints a go.





I will base these when I have a few more units painted and get more feel to the overall look.
Currently I'm thinking something along the lines of a dark wasteland, almost like an abandoned graveyard.

Did some sketching on one of the Venoms as well. The contrast is not very visible in the picture, but I'm thinking about bringing the raised areas up by stippling lighter tones.
Maybe some white glyphs on the sides. The red might also be a bit darker in the recesses.



I have bunch of stuff to paint for the army:

- 10-20 kabalites (10 of which are old trueborn conversions)
- 20 wyches
- 5 Scourges
- 5 Incubi
- 5 venoms
- 2 raiders
- 2 Ravagers
- Talos
- Razorwing Jetfighter

Not to mention if I'm going to buy a box or two.

Quite a bit of work to do, but I'm really excited!
Finally being able to set on a color scheme and the release of the new book drive me forward.

There might be quite a few Spiky Space Elves appearing in the near future, but my attention span being short I might jump to another project at any point.
Will make it goal to finish this army by the end of the year though!

Thanks for looking!

Kabalites look great! Fantastic work all around. Findng that balance between "looking good" and "easy enough to paint in a reasonable amount of time to retain what little bit of sanity I have left" is a tough balancing act and if you had fun painting these and are happy with the results, which look great, then I say that's a win!

Great job on the spikey Eldar. You’ve certainly quashed my question on the highlights with the pace you’ve knocked out the first squad. They have a nice glowing coal look to them I think. Not going to town on the fine details is a great way to crank out units, and I don’t think it detracts either. The Contrast skin colours seem pretty effective, for the 1 try I’ve had anyway!

So much this. Doing dozen(s) of hours of work for a single mini is fine for characters and display models, but definitely not for basic stuff for the tabletop


Keeping up the pace and finished the first Venom.







Did not have the right canopy for it anymore, but luckily I had one purple tinted Falcon canopy left. I think the purple might work well enough.
I might add some glyphs or other markings on the side with an off white tone, but I'm thinking about doing that a bit later.

I think my tactic for these things is a bit different than usual: first I'll do a basic paint job on most of the army so I get them on the tabletop as quick as possible (I'm really really looking forward to play with these). Later on, I'll start adding some stencil markings etc. when I have gotten a bit more feel to the army.

The next four Venoms are waiting for their turn.
Luckily the old canopies were in decent condition. Might have to find some new ones nevertheless.



Thanks for looking!

New vs old.

Thanks guys! Glad the canopy fits. Or rather, fitted. A little accident happened: I did not notice that it had dropped on the floor, until I felt stepping on something
I have a few canopies from unfinished kits. I will be using them, but that is just delaying the problem. I will have to come up with new ones (would have to anyway to replace the current glue stained ones).

Nothing new finished yet, but I did a bunch of work on the other Venoms, prepared two squads for priming and played a game.

Played the first game with the new table. Even though the folding gaming table was handy, this one is sturdy as he**.
Been lucky to be able to play a game once week for a few weeks now (safely of course, masks and all that). That is about to change though, as the Covid situation is getting worse and they are preparing harsh lockdowns.





Almost finished two more Venoms, just some small touching up to do. The pictures are bad, but the contrast is a bit better than in the first one.
I was supposed to work on four of these simultaneously, but for some reason the base coating stage got a bit too messy on the other two. Not hard to fix, but they got left behind a bit.



Then I decided to glue some of my old kit bashed units back together. Some bits were torn of in storage and a few models were still unbuilt.

The first one is this Wych squad, kitbashed from the AoS Wych Aelf kit. These gals were built back in 2017, around the time I last touched this army (if the Succubus is not counted).




The other one is my old Kabalite Trueborn squad, kitbashed from the old Dark Elf Corsair kit. I had built eight of these, as I fielded them in two squads of four back in the 6th edition.
A few of them had some paint on, while others were either primed or just plain grey.
Had to replace a few blasters with splinter rifles and build two new guys (the squad leader and a regular dude).
Found a few rifles from my bits box, but had to take a couple from the old Kabalites. With their thick coat of paint and glue stains, most of them will be moved to the spare miniature storage anyway.





With the new codex, I'm able to use these as the Hekatrix Bloodbrides and Kabalite Trueborns respectively, which is really cool!
I can of course also use them as the regular variants.

That's all for now.
Thank you for looking! I'll keep on working on with these guys.

You've certainly been busy lately! The Goliaths are impressive for only 1hr per model, they look like they'll fit into the underhive really well. I like how even for quick minis you couldn't resist adding in hazard stripes and a load of weathering!

Maharg: One can't resist a few hazard stripes haha! Had to add something to make them a bit more interesting.

gobert: Glad you like 'em gobert! Yes, the next Venoms are a bit brighter. I was a bit afraid to push the highlights far enough on the first one, but managed to do so eventually.

Tyranid Horde: Yeah, they are rather fitting miniatures for 40k kitbashes!


Finished painting all the Venoms yesterday.
I painted the rest in batches of two, but instead of showing the similar vehicles in different posts, I decided to gather them all to one.
Make up brushes work really well for dry brushing! Don't remember where I heard that the first time, but all I can say is, that there is no going back!

The bases are some of my old creations, but work well enough as temporary solutions.






Most likely they will rarely be on the tabletop all at once, as the Raider seems to be the preferable choice in the new dex. But they are too cool to be left without a new paint job!
The extra guys hanging off the sides have been used for conversions and as spare parts ages ago. They would have looked cool and all, but for tabletop purposes they are a bit too much of a hassle.

Next up, I need to figure out how to paint the bigger vehicles.

I bought a few spare models for further conversions. Still missing an Archon, Haemonculus and Wracks, plus a few other things I would like to convert somehow.
Well I have a dozen of finecast Wracks and the old Haemonculus, but never truly liked the models. Been thinking about using the Ghouls I bought for Mordheim as a base for wracks and a Tomb Banshee as a base for the Haemonculus.
If I'm to use Grotesques in the army, I might use the AoS Vargheists or other big vampire monsters.

Pretty much every idea I have been thinking about, can be found already from the internet.
That usually is the case, so I must not fret about it, but instead use them as an inspiration. After all, it's nearly impossible to come up with something completely original.
Trying to avoid completely copying anything though.


Thank you for looking!
A friend is coming over to do some painting, so I'll most likely get some more done over the weekend.

The Venom Squadron is terrific- wonderful use of color! Dark Eldar are fun to work with (when you have your level of skill) because you get the benefit of three of the axioms of miniature figure painting:

* Color distracts the eye from detail (if used properly)
* Detail separates adequate from exceptional
* In mass lies perfection

Here you have highly detailed, colorful, numerous interesting machines; I likes 'em!
