    thanks, Dr. Bob...
    bold is what i try for ...


    nearly three months without a post!!!
    i've had a serious case of internet malaise...

    i've been busy as hell, painting like a man possessed...
    in the first five months of 2016, i've finished more minis than i normally do in an entire year...
    it has been a lot of fun to try some new things, and push my painting to a new level...

    here is a quick sneak peek at a few of the models i've finished in the last three months...



    WIP shots and painting breakdowns should be a lot of fun to share and talk about
    lots of catching up to do!!!

    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like them...

    cheers

    hey CMON...


    Ulrik the Slayer...
    what a brilliant re-imagining of a classic, iconic character...
    i really like the "standing on a windswept cliff, overseeing the battlefield below" vibe to the pose...
    very cool to see Ulrik's face for the first time, too
    he is one grizzled looking dude...







    this is the second round of pics, and they are still horrible
    one more try, and maybe they will turn out better...

    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like him...

    KruleBear: thanks, dude, but sadly, i'm a cheater
    the knotwork is sculpted into the cloak on this one, just like on Krom...
    it is awesome though


    as soon as i saw this mini, i knew i had to paint it...
    Forge World always makes the best Event Only models

    i enjoy trying different TMM styles, and pushing my skills, to make things more isually interesting...
    going for a reflection of earth on the downward facing surfaces, and the sky in the upward facing bits, seemed like a good thing to try out...
    no better steel surface in the 30K setting to try this on than an Iron Warriors character






    i've got loads of WIP pics that i need to edit up and share, because it was a really fun process to play with the metals and matte paints...

    thanks for looking...

    @KruleBear: funny enough, almost every mini i've finished since Ulrik do have some freehand elements...
    i really enjoyed doing the hazard stripes on the Iron Warriors character, and the numbers on the Gobbo below...
    i've also just done a Chaos arrow freehand design on the female Heretek...
    she is based off of an Infinity the Game girl, which if you own any Infinity minis, you know how tiny they are...
    that was a test of nerves!!!


    here is the Gobbo, finally!!!
    this was a limited edition run of 125 a few years back, from Spyglass Miniatures...
    i was stoked to get my hands on one

    after he spent a few years languishing in my carrying case, hopping from country to country, the Dakka Monthly Painting Challenge theme came up as "Everyday Hero"...
    that, plus the Bloodbowl teasers from the last Forge World event got me fired up to paint a Fantasy Football Goblin...

    this was my first time using the P3 color Wurm Green...
    in the pot, it didn't look like my kind of green, but it looks great on the mini, especially shaded with Sanguine Base...
    Wurm Green mixes nicely with white, without going chalky, for the highlights, and Murderous Magenta worked well for the pink bits of skin...
    paired with Meredius Blue, the scheme worked out quite nicely, i thought









    the Elven helmet on the base is a Space Marine helmet carved up...
    i hope i captured an Elven vibe with the lines i tried to create with my whittling

    i had a lot of fun painting the metal...

    i've still been slacking on my posts, but painting furiously every night, nonetheless...

    since we are over halfway through the year already, i guess i should get caught up posting all of the commissions the i have finished in 2016...
    January started out with a bunch of Sniper Scouts for the Strike Force Cassius Ultramarines army...

    this kit is definitely showing it's age compared to the Storm Scouts, but since i had never painted Snipers before, i enjoyed the set...
    getting to paint Telion, finally, was a real pleasure...
    i'd been waiting to paint him since 2008...

    i started with a little tester, to get the scheme down, since Scouts have more cloth than Marines...
    it is just a variation on the exact same palette that i am using on the rest of the army...




    once i had the test mini done, i got approval to do the rest in the same manner...






    once i got a fair bit done on the rest of the squad, i had to tackle the camo cloaks...
    a simple base coat of P3 Greatcoat Grey, a black wash, then some shapes from P3 Thamar Black, followed by P3 Underbelly Blue with a touch of GG to tone it down, and we have a simple (hopefully effective) urban camo...





    with their bases done, the first squad is ready to hit the table...



    next up is Telion, and the second squad...

    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like them...

    It is a nice and effect pattern, nice work

    /K
    work is boring when it gets in the way of my painting.

    cheers, Kretcher


    Sgt. Telion was a joy to finally paint...
    love this sculpt
    unfortunately, i didn't get to spend the time on him that i would have liked to, but the main concern for this client is always speed...






    for the second 5-man unit, i wanted the customer to be able to combine them into a single 10-man unit if he wanted to...
    so that he could easily single out which Sergeant and missile launcher guy would proxy as regular sniper rifle guys...
    giving the missile launcher dude the kneeling legs was easy, since his torso isn't cloaked...
    the sergeant needed a lot of cutting to make his torso fit on the "Tactical Rock" legs...
    good conversions, to make a mini stand out, are always worth the effort, though...

    i did a much better job on the digital camo the second time around...
    a little practice goes a long way...

    hey CMON...

    did you know that i paint miniatures???
    yeah, it's been that long since I posted...

    this Showgirl, Colette, was a test piece for a potential commission...
    she was my first plastic Wyrd miniature...
    i have to say, i am not a fan of the way that the plastics are cut for the sprue, nor the delicacy of the tiny parts...
    the way that the seams of the joins need to be filled means that i have to fully assemble the mini before painting, rather than painting in parts, which is my preference...
    while i do prefer this version of Colette over her original metal model, i'm glad i bought some of the others, like Perdita and Rasputina, before the metal models were replaced by their plastic sculpts...

    i tried to add a bit of texture to the dress with a bit of pointillism...
    this was one of my first experiments with this technique, back in February, just in time for Valentine's Day...
    i have refined the technique since then, and look forward to sharing the results of the last two minis that i've tried it on...
    if i had this mini to do over again, the main thing that i would change is the flame in her hand...
    i would invert the colors of the purple fire, placing the white hot bit in the grooves, going darker toward the tip of the flame...
    live and learn...

    i am doing a much better job of the texture on the coat of the Skarre bust that i am finishing up right now...
    i look forward to showing what i have learned from the last few experiments...


    every once in a while, i get a commission to do something fresh, rather than another standard studio scheme Space Marine, or create a unique original conversion...
    this time i got to do both!!!

    this Sorcerer of Tzeentch is built from the legs of a Dark Angels Veteran, one of the Russian chests, helmet, backpack, and shoulder pad sets, the arms and power sword of a Raptor, the pistol of the GW Sorcerer, and the wings of a Scourge...

    OK, the scheme is the standard for Thousand Sons, so i threw in some Beaten Purple and Arcane Blue to make it my own...
    this was my first time trying to paint a flaming power sword...
    it didn't come out as subtle as i would have liked, so i'll have to have another go at it soon...

    i need to dig up the photos, and edit them up, but i took step-by-step pics of the wings for a brief tutorial...
    it is only four very simple stages...
    very gamer friendly

    cheers, guys...
    it was a lot of fun to try out the purple and blue combo


    this Rubric Marine goes along with the Sorcerer that i posted on Monday...
    he is part of a small warband for the Black Crusade RPG... every model in this group is a unique conversion, which was a fun challenge, especially the ones that involved a fair bit of work...
    like the Sorcerer, this guy has a custom left-handed gun... none of the Chaos Marines come with guns in their left hand, but both of the swords that the customer wanted were right-handed...
    luckily, the Sternguard kit comes with left-handed bolt pistols...
    even though it was a pain in the ass, i cut the pistols off of the hands, and then pinned the hands into a Raptor arm, then finished it off by pinning the guns into the hands...

    the parts in this conversion are taken from the Chaos Space Marine kit, the Raptor kit, and the Russian Thousand Sons set...
    the jackal helmet from the Russian kit is one of my favorite pieces in the set.

    this is my first time painting the T. Sons Rubric Marine scheme...
    blue and gold is a nice harmonious scheme, and i threw in a little purple to tie him in with the Sorcerer that he protects... the badass chainsword from the Raptor kit has a cool demon face in it, so i gave it a glow to match that of the plasma gun and helmet lenses...

    hey CMON...

    the kit bashing continues, with the third member of the Black Crusade warband...
    this guy was a lot of fun to build, as i finally got to use the helmet and torso that i had been wanting to paint for the last fifteen years...
    i am always so booked, that i often have to wait a long time to get around to the projects that i daydream about...
    this guy was definitely one that i had been thinking of for years...

    this guy was built using a Chaos Space Marine torso, helmet, legs, shoulder pads, and backpack from their basic kit...
    one sword blade was taken from the same kit, while the other blade is from the Noise Marine upgrade kit, with the poison vials cut off...
    the arms are from the Black Templars upgrade sprue...
    he was finished off by cutting the tubes off of his torso, and gluing some fine chain across it instead...

    it isn't often that a Sci-Fi model calls for two swords, but it is a really cool look...
    the chains on the wrists are something that i always liked on the Black Templars, and fit the theme of this Marine who has turned to Chaos...

    i used the same battered paint style that i did on the Ultramarines army, as it seemed really appropriate for this model...
    i tried a new approach to painting the power swords on this guy, using fine lines to represent the glow, rather than a source lighting style...
    it needs a bit more experimenting to refine the look, but i like the idea a lot...
    i am a big fan of stylized painting, rather than realism...

    hey CMON...

    time for something a little nasty...
    the Sorcerer of Nurgle...
    i'd wanted to paint this Forge World model since he was a new release, so it was a pleasure to finally find him in my commission queue...
    getting to use one of the cool new Chaos Raptor jump packs was just an added bonus...

    i was asked to give this guy a Rod of Corruption, a tail, the Plague Knife, and the jump pack...
    it was a pretty straight forward conversion, just having to clip the weapon from his hand, turn it around, and pin the staff back together...
    i hid the cuts by sculpting a leather band around the handle...
    then I used the left-over blade for the Plague Knife on his hip...
    nice how that worked out

    for the paint job, i wanted to see how P3 Ordic Olive and Traitor Green would mix, and how that drab green would look with purple shading...
    the P3 Murderous Magenta for the open sores stands out nicely from the green, and the black mummified flesh allows the magenta and green to take center stage...
    both the armor, and the skin, are highlighted with P3 Thrall Flesh to tie them together...
    hopefully i achieved an nice harmonious scheme, that does justice to Nurgle's imagery...

    hey CMON...

    finally, an Infinity mini!!!
    it has been a few years since i got to paint one of these awesome sculpts...
    being asked to paint one up as a female Dark Mechanicum Heretek for the Black Crusade warband just made things that much cooler...
    as soon as my client told me what he wanted, i knew exactly which miniature I would use for the conversion...
    this Nomads Reverend Custodier has a pose that is elegant, sexy, dangerous, and mechanical, all at the same time...
    i love that she is plugging a data-feed into her head, while standing with her hip cocked...
    the hooded coat has a very Matrix feel to it, too...

    the brief was for a Heretek with a sacrificial dagger...
    the original model comes with a sniper rifle, held loose at her hip...
    the only bit of converting that i had to do was to clip the rifle away from her hand, and make a dagger using the handle of a Chaos Space Marine combat blade, and the blade from the Dark Eldar Kabalite accessories...

    since the color of the Mechanicum is red, it was not hard to choose the scheme...
    i knew i wanted a dark tone, so i used that on her armor...
    the red of her coat is very basic, but the freehand fancies it up a bit...
    the blade needed to be black, so i took the chance to spruce it up by trying my hand at a blood drop...
    hopefully, the pose, and the drop, combine to give her a sense of motion and life...
