It didn't turn out exactly as I hoped, but it is still a solid model, and if I ever get asked to paint one again I now know exactly what to do.

More KDM, and more low light environment models. I think I should have put some more work into the mane, but I'm pretty proud of how I managed to simulate fur texture. Will deffinently use that again in the future.

The fur texture on the main body is impressive, definitely worth using in the future.

I agree with you. The fur simulation is very effective and must have been hard to pull off, especially with the low-light environment effects on the lion's body. If anything the mane is probably jarring because the body is so good Nicely done!

I think that this is probably the best model I've ever painted. My biggest challenge was figuring out how to do smooth blends on this particular model. While I've done blending in many ways before, typicaly I paint smaller models with much less circular highlights. After trying wet blending, loaded brush, layering and glazing, the only thing that worked for me was to very gradualy add more and more yellow into my glazes and then feather it out to the side. Anything else resulted in blends that weren't smooth, or left brush marks. The NMM parts were done by painting them black first, and then using the loaded brush techniqe with a dark blue in the brush and pure white on the tip. For the smaller metal parts I used simple layering. All of this was done in a very messy and uncontroled manner to make the metal look more rough, unpolished, and to save time. One of these days I'm going to have to get a model to try and paint to a showcase standard - to give my very best with no corners cut.

Very impressive! That's a big but very smooth gradient transition on pieces like the shoulder and chest.

I started work on a Gold smoke knight, another kingdom death: monster model. I decided that I'm gonna strip it down unfortunately, even though it wasn't looking all that bad. I had problems creating smooth blends, neither wet blending nor glazing seemed to be working. I got it all figured out now though, I finally figured out how to get rid of the brush marks when glazing. It's a great feeling, getting rid of a mental blockade. Up until now I've been painting much smaller models, and my techniqes didn't seem to be working on larger surfaces. Turns out all I had to do was feather the brush marks to the side with a damp brush.

Thanks! Now that these two models have taught me what works and what doesn't on models of this size, I'll be able to create even smoother blends, and in less time.

Last christmas I got 2 zvezda 1/100 scale tanks as well as some plasticard for my brother so that he could make them into grot tanks. I've been nagging him to start converting them for a long time now, and I finally gave up and decided to do it myself. Here is the result. I had plans that were a bit more ambitious than this at first, but the plasticard that I got was way too thick - 3mm - it was the only one available in the hobby shop at the time. And as always, please do use this as inspiration for your own versions, I'm not a particulary skilled converter and would like to see how my idea would look like if it was done with someone with actual skill.

Been to a workshop for the first time and made my first diorama. There wasn't a lot of time so some mistakes went through, but overall I think it's great. What model do you think I should put on it?

Finished. Must say that I'm not happy at all with the results, especially since this is for a friend. I guess it's okay, but I was aiming for much higher than this. I got arrogant and lazy, thinking that using some of the new tricks I learned from my last paintjob (infinity guijia) that I simply did not use enough colour mixes and that resulted in less than stellar blends.

Dug through my models to find something suitable to put on the diorama and found this warmachine battle mekanik. I also swapped out some of the signs for something more appropriate.

A WIP on a 75mm scale teutonic knight. I think it's going rather well so far. I do need to put some more work into the silver though.

I am finished with the body for now and will be moving onto the hands and weapons now. There are a few places that need touch up, but right now I don't have the will to tend to them, I think working on the shield will re-energise me. I will be painting my family crest onto it. Not exactly historical, but who cares. The silver on the back of the helmet look amazing in my oppinion, but the front of the helmet - not so much. From what I've been able to figure out, the contrast for NMM needs to be reduced on models of this scale, or at least that's true for flat silver surfaces. The gold (horns) turned out poorly, I haven't yet been able to figure out exactly what I'm doing wrong though.

My teutonic knight is almost done. There are some mistakes that I will need to correct, but I've decided to upload these pictures now because the camera I usually use to take pictures is not currently available and a have to use a sub par one, so the pictures were never going to be perfect anyway. I will be uploading the corrected versions later, so bear with me. There were many problems that I had to deal with when painting this, but at the very least I would say that it's pretty good for my first 90mm scale project, wouldn't you say?

Here is the finished version. Originaly I wanted to weather him much less than this, but the pigments reacted in an unexpected way.

Still a great looking knight. I miss the flamboyant, symbolic helmets on warriors. Too many these days are "efficient". What about the weathering was troubling? The knight just looks a little worn, like after a long trek or battle.

Originaly I intended to just put a few spots of pigment here and there, but when I went to fix them in place theymelted and became similar to a regular wash. I must have used too much pigment fixer. To top it off, the pigment fixer has alcohol in it so the paint actually started comming off! I narowly avioded disaster there.

Nothing like that unfortunately. It's just suppose to be a drone sneaking through an industrial waste line so he can ambush some imperials. I've been itching to paint this sort of light and shadow play for a while, only my original idea was to have light blocked by the leaves of a tree. Unfortunately I didn't have a model that looked "ordinary" enough to look good under this effect (I don't want details to take the forus away from the effect), nor did I have something to make a tree out of. So I rummaged through my models to find the most "ordinary" looking model and found this drone. As far as materials to make a diorama out of I didn't have anything interesting other than some cork board and paperclips. So I came up with this.

Thanks for telling the background of that drone, That piece has a lot of character, and I think the lighting effects turned out nicely.

One of the few Warmachine models that I actually like and haven't painted earlier, though it has its problems. The colours on the picture aren't very accurate, this is the first time I've managed my red to look 100% red and not a bit darker. Still a WIP clearly.

Horse is done, other than a few spots where I still need to do some dark lining. I could have made the metalics look a lot better if I'm totaly honest, but even like this this paintjob took a lot of time and I don't have the energy for it. Maybe if the sculpt was a little better I would feel compeled to do it.
