Neon Necron

Using the technique I learned the other day, I painted a necron.

I wanted to use the high contrast to play about with some Object Source Lighting and this guy was not doing anything!

I wanted the balls on the mini to glow and so they would become the lightest areas. I dry brushed up through the colours as before just tried to focus on where the light would hit if parts were glowing.

I’m pleased with these results:

Thousand Sons Squad 1

This is the first finished squad for my Horus Heresy army all finished! It’s the first time I have used Tamiya on a squad rather than an individual miniature and I am mostly pleased with how it has turned out. Some of the red could have used another coat in a few places but overall they look alright.

I didn’t go for top quality on these guys as I fully intend to play with them. It felt strange doing so, but they got done far quicker this way.

Here they are:

Nighthaunt: Reikenor the Grimhailer

First miniature of 2023 and it’s this guy!

I painted him using dry brushing (for the most part). I wanted to remind myself that bright colours look great alongside dark ones and that spooky ghosts are awesome. I used the neon method that I worked on previously, and this is the result:

I am pleased with the result, and think that the bright green looks great with the dark purple underneath. I enjoyed creating the lighter parts too, and the dark silver just finished it off nicely.

This miniature didn’t take all that long to do either, and was a good way of getting back to painting after the Christmas break.

Raven Guard – Part ?

I confess to losing count as to how many parts I have done the Raven Guard army in, but I have enjoyed every single bit of it.

This section was 20 Tactical marines of the new variety. I am so pleased with how sharp the highlights have turned out and as always, the green to break up the black.

The owner of this army is leaving the UK for the great Canadian outdoors, and as a thank you and good luck, I built a captain with some parts I have kicking about the house. Here are the results:

I’m so pleased with the freehand on the banner and his shoulder pad. He has been named ‘The Blacksmith’ by his new owner, and I hope he brings glory and success to his chapter in the future.

Corpse Grinders – Necromunda

For a friend’s birthday, I bought them a Necromunda gang. They welfare the Corpse Grinder cult, and shall be used in a weeks time when there is a Necromunda Day at our house. All the gangs will be painted and as this friend isn’t a painter, they asked me to do so.

I agreed of course but when I asked about the colour scheme, they said I could pick. Here is the result:

I decided against adding blood splats because I wanted that pink to be seen by all.

My friend loves them!

Forster’s Foundry: D&D Print

Another miniature I have painted recently has been for a D&D campaign. The print was done at the Foundry and was designed on Hero Forge – a service that we provide as part of the 3D printing business. It was my pleasure to also paint this character and then see them used in a D&D campaign that I am also playing in.

This time, it was a Tiefling Bard with white skin. Here he is:

He was a fun character to paint – I just hope he survives long enough in the campaign to realise his potential!

Palanite Wagon – Necromunda

Necromunda has become a feature in our household for some time! The gang have already finished one campaign and are now on about starting up a new one, with new gangs. One of them decided to play the Palanite Enforcers this time around, going for a dark blue and yellow colour scheme. Seeing how they are meant to be the police. As it was her birthday recently, our gift to her was a truck. The design and printing was handled by Dave, I did the painting. This is how it turned out:

It was a huge print, but a complete joy to paint. Battle damage seemed to be a must, considering that it’s Necromunda! The best part was how much she loved it though.

Kratos Tank – Raven Guard.

This last week, I have painted a lot of vehicles! The first of which was a Kratos Tank for the Raven Guard. It is a wonderful vehicle! I loved the shape, the size, the amount of guns it had. Everything about this tank made it cool.

I painted it in the scheme of the Raven Guard I have done several times before, as it was for the same person, and I am particularly pleased with how it turned out. Here it is:

As you can see, this tank was too big to fit in my lightbox properly, so I had to use the painting desk as a background, albeit with clean paper! I did not want to send this tank to its new home, and look forward to eventually getting one of my own in the future.
