I really like how your models are so brightly painted, Inevitable has said it all about your kit bashing skills. She is center piece model for sure.

Now for some Kingdom Death. I finally got up off my rear and started painting the models in the color scheme I had kicked around for quite some time but for some reason never took the chance at trying. I wanted something stark and gloomy, but still interesting. I settled on a sort of Sin City style, with a grayscale broken up by small shots of color. I am fairly pleased with the result and am looking forward to painting a lot more of these models, since I love me some KD.




These are really nice. I particularly like the White Lion. I don't think I've seen a lot of body art on KD models, but I think it's a cool idea. Hmm...

Thank you very much for the compliments! It was quite the exercise slotting that Witch-elf jaw into the Scourge helmet. A test of sorts for a couple other models I have planned.

Relic Knights. Anybody play this game any more? Me neither. We gave it an honest try in my group, but some of the players couldn't get their heads around not just rushing wildly into combat and actually attempting to accomplish objectives. This led to a few frustrating games and RK quickly fell out of favor. However, I do really like some of the models. This one, Candy Heart, a giveaway from Soda Pop to KS backers for persevering through delays and mispacks. For a long time she sat partially finished. For over a year, I think. When I started again she looked like this:





But now she is done and looks like this:



Glad to have her done. Having her unfinished was a burr I am happy to have removed.

Thanks for looking!

She looks great with her bright colours matching the bubbly attitude of the model. It's always a treat to see new models I've never seen before, definitely a unique and fun model.

Nice job on Candy Heart, and Volt Edge is a particularly fine piece of kit-bashing.

Yeah your heroes are a brilliant creation dude I always think that the mark of an excellent conversion is when you look at it painted and think 'that could be a standalone model'.

Those are definitely the case as I was actually pretty surprised by the WIP shot having so many different bits and sculpting to it

Also, I knew there was someone with a kickass Greyscale/spot colour Kingdom Death scheme knocking around but couldn't remember who. I hope you don't mind but I plan on unashamedly stealing that for a Harlequin Troupe idea I have brewing

Thanks, guys! I'm glad you like her.

Steal away, Ynneadwraith. I look forward to seeing the result!

Finished painting Treebeard and the Spriggan. Just need to varnish, base, and photo. Hopefully this weekend/next week. Centurius has also changed from being based on the Primaris LT to being based on the Primaris Chaplain. So I will need to buy one of those.

Thank you, Ember. Glad you like it.

Slow progress. But I guess I wouldn't want to be too hasty with this one. GW's Treebeard painted up for the Wood Elf Blood Bowl team.



Even if he never sees play it is nice to have this model painted. GW made some great models for the LotR range and I am glad to have actually got off my backside and painted this guy.

Also finished the model that sold me on the 1st MYTH KS (concept art that sold me, I guess), the Spriggan. Have since moved on almost all my MYTH pledge, but was sure to hang onto this guy (girl?).



Quite a neat little model. Quick to paint and will serve nicely as a stand in Wardancer to break things up on the pitch a bit.

And all the team members done so far:



And a first look at a newly developing project:



Avengers, assemble. The availability and cost of Avengers models for Knight Model's Marvel mini game were proving to be obnoxious, so I have chosen Heroclix models I like the sculpts on and will be repainting them to maybe one day use in that game.

Still cutting away on Centurius, still painting Wood Elves and Rasputina. And Legion. Too much to do, so little time.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, guys! Appreciate the compliments. Almost done with the next 3 elves. Then it is just the wardancers and the final line-elf and the team is finished.

Thank you, Captain!

Sick kids, sick wife, bad weather, and then sick me on top of the holidays have ground productivity almost to a halt for a couple weeks. A real drag because I finished the 3 elves and Rasputina. They are glossed, but still need the flat and basing. Frustrating to have them so close to done and not be able to get around to the last bits. Hopefully at least be able to finish varnishing this weekend.

The end of 2017 was really something, but I finally got these models finished.



Three more for the Wood Elves. These are of the throwing and catching variety.



Rasputina finally done. I should have taken a picture of her with the three Gamin I painted when I got the starter. In 2014.



A little GS work to get rid of Hulk's Forrest Gump 'do.

Work proceeds on Centurius, BB, and other projects. Had a wild moment and grabbed Betty and Lug out of the Relic Knights pile, so some RK may be in the future.

As always, thanks for looking.

Thanks, guys.

The shine is just from the gloss varnish I use. Krylon Gloss Clear. For the slimes I just give it a little extra and skip the Dullcote.

Now for some Kingdom Death.

Up first, the four starting survivors, with a solo shot of my favorite of the four.





And the first Monster, the White Lion.



Thank you for looking!


Those are simply beautifull - I like restrained schemes very much and using lamps and blood as accents works awesomely!

Time flies...





Blood Bowl team is done. Technically. I still have a couple models I should paint from the team box. If I don't do them now, I may as well throw them in the trash. A third Wardancer and a final Line-Elf. I also threw a Dwarf referee on the table for grins. But those guys are afterthoughts and the team proper is done. Thankfully. Like many in this hobby I suffer from an attention deficiency and it was really getting to be a chore to paint these guys. The momentum from the Treeman and Spriggan done wore off a while ago. Trouble with only being able to work sporadically, as well.

In other news...



A long time ago I tried to play a game called Warzone. It was an alternative to 40K with a lot of cool art and absolutely atrocious models that I convinced myself were ok because they were different. Anyway, Warzone took off like a rocket when it was first released, and then exploded in upper atmo instead of having any longevity and people quickly moved on. I kept my Brotherhood force until recently for some reason. Latent hoarding tendencies, I suppose. Finally took a good hard look at them and sent them packing. But the shiny new Warzone:Resurrection figures needled their way into my brain, and with no intent to ever play the game beyond first edition, or really at all, I replaced my Brotherhood force with updated resin hotness. Now my Warzone figures get to make the GW figs look big and clunky instead of the other way around. First figure finally done, started him last year sometime, establishing the look for the basic troopers, inspired by COBRA Vipers.

And some WIP on Centurius, who still isn't done, but is farther along than in these pics. By a little.



As always, thanks for looking.

Love the blood bowl team, everything just looks right on those models right down to the astro turf looking bases. Looking forward to Centurius that conversion work on his face is great, as is the rest of the fig. The Malifaux trooper does make some of the new GW look big and clunky, if I had to put him in the GW universe I would say he looks like he belongs with the T'au, great paint job on him.

Thanks, Yorkright. I am fairly pleased with how Centurius has gone so far. I just need to focus enough to finish him and the last three squad members.

Let me tell you, working with that faceplate was F-U-N. Especially when I dropped it. Thank goodness I wasn't working over carpet.
