Necromunda Scenery.

During some ‘spare’ time between commissions and Golden Demon, I have managed to speed paint some scenery the gang intend to use for Necromunda.

I used the airbrush for the silver and then tinny tin and brassy brass with Nihilakh Oxide in some of the recesses. These were only done quickly but I was pleased with them none the less.

I also did some rock piles while I was at it!

Crimson Fists!

Recently, I was asked if I would paint prizes for a give away over on Simply Warhammer. I was only too happy to agree and last week, the prize arrived. The winner wanted some MK VI marines painted as Crimson Fists, and today I finished them.

They were fun, I love dark blue and red so these were a real pleasure to work on! Here they are:

More Raven Guard!

This week, I have mostly been working on the next set of Raven Guard! I enjoy painting these gusts, and feel they turned out really well. I particularly like how the claws turned out and the crazy shadow Captain – who I definitely do not want to meet either on or off the battlefield!!

Here they are, in all their dark, shadowy glory!

Death Guard – a new technique!

I was recently asked to paint a bunch of Death Guard Marines for a client. They asked if Inwould be able to match some miniatures they had already done using a similar style.

It was neat because the original miniatures were done using loads of washes and technical paints rather than string acrylic colours. It was a lot of fun trying to match the colours and grime of the original minis while trying to add my own flair to them. Here they are:

I m so pleased with how they turned out, and would like to try those technique on other models to see how well it carries over.

Coast Guard Inquisitor Warband!

I have finally finished the Coast Guard commission and I am so proud of the miniatures. I love the tank, and the Warband itself too.

The scheme was blues and gold/yellow and based on the coast guard, as explained in a previous post.

The coast guard symbol is about an inch and a half long, and I’m proud of these miniatures. The faves turned out well, the gold looks deep and the swords well blended.

More knights.

I’ve been so busy! A week has evaporated before my eyes! I’ve had a few things on the go lately, the Biggest of which is this guy:

He didn’t fit in the light box! I’m so pleased with his swamp pond on his base.

I have also been working on a horde of woodelves and some inquisition Warband! I’ve been kept busy for sure!

Nurgle Knights – 1

Between working on the Coast Guard tank and the warband to go with it, I have had the absolute pleasure of working on these two!

The client had done a little work on them and wanted them finishing off with a nurgle flavour. I decided that meant the bases had to look like nurgle’s garden! I grabbed as many different plant type things as I could find, created some toxic ponds and ‘went to town.’ I am so pleased with how they have ended up, I do not think they are too over the top, but you can definitely see that they are on an abundant floral place!

The bonus is, I have a big knight to work on too! That base is going to be amazing! I might see what fun I can have with a leaf cutter and some resin too!

Freehand on the Tank.

One of my clients has recently retired from the Coast Guard, and has asked me to paint an Inquisitor and his retinue in Coast Guard colours. This group also need a super cool transport, which I have been working on this past week. He asked if it could be painted in the colours of the Coast Guard’s vehicles, with their symbol on the back. I was only too happy to oblige. It turned out to be quite the challenge. This is the symbol I worked from, and the car for reference too:

I wanted the symbol to look really cool, so decided the yellow would be a non metallic metal gold. First thing I did was sketch out the symbol where I wanted it on the tank in pencil

I then proceeded to add the gold, working up through the colours starting dark and then layering up yellows and browns until I had the effect I wanted.

I added the gems in the crown and tidied up the details.

The final part – which was the hardest – was adding the ‘Greek Key’ pattern over the top of the gold. This was particularly nerve-wracking, as if I had gone wrong, I would have had to start over again. I practiced the pattern first, then lightly drew it on in pencil. I then painted over it.

Lastly, I used bluetack to lift of the remaining pencil and the end result is what you see.

Now I just need to finish the rest of the tank!

House of Excess, now in colour!

Between commissions, I have managed to paint some of the Foundry miniatures. I really wanted to see what ruffly pants men looked like in garish colours, so went for it! Yellow and purple are a good clash, and then add in the bright blue gems and it looks truly… bright.

I like them. I know these sculpts are a very hit or miss thing depending on preference, as with most things, but I think they’re pretty funky!
