I love Warhammer World. There is always more to see in the exhibition and the atmosphere is always buzzing and open.
This time, we explored the exhibition and I took pictures of things I would like to try out myself in the future, as well as characters I particularly like.
In the afternoon, we tried the Warhammer escape room, which was amazing. We crawled through tunnels, solved puzzles and ran away from chaos space marines! We managed to get out in 38 minutes! it was awesome.
I had a go at painting Yndrasta recently, and wanted to get her done relatively quickly. As such, most of her was painted using dry brushing. I layer up the colours, starting dark and then working up to the brightest with less and less pressure on the brush. The wings show this the clearest and I feel it worked well.
I also dry brushed the metallic part of her, finally using a detail brush to pick out other details such as the gems and belts. I’m really pleased with how she turned out.
I also added some grasses to the base to make it look a bit swampy. There are some of those details already there, however I added some more to make the effect more dynamic. Here she is:
We have had another couple of D&D miniatures to paint through Forster’s Foundry, and I’ve had a lot of fun with them. This is Oskar – the dwarf, and Roscoe – the gnome (I think).
These two were a lot of fun to work on and not too complicated either. I thoroughly enjoyed the colours the client has chosen and am thrilled with how they turned out. I particularly like the hair on Oskar!
After building the intercessors, it occurred to me that I had to paint them too. I have myself 3 days to get them all done and I managed to do it! Challenge success.
I’ve not painted a batch that size for some time and it was a good opportunity to get some practice in. So, here are 6 combat squads of Black Templar Intercessors for your enjoyment!
The biggest pain with them was the old decals. They didn’t soften very well and some look crackled on the mini. Varnishing did help with them and they have all stuck. I think maybe I need to get some practice in with sticking decals on curved surfaces in the future!
This is artificer Norric. I painted him for someone who got in touch about the print and paint service we offer at the Foundry. He is painted to Tier 2 quality and was loads of fun to work on. Fortunately. The client sent over loads of pictures of how they wanted him painting, which always helps. Using these I was able to create the mini he was after, as seen below!
Norric was created using HeroForge and printed out using Forster’s Foundry. The link to the service is below:
Every once in a while, I get to work on my own miniatures. Rarer still, I get to finish one. I finally finished off the blade guard ancient from the Indomitus box, released last century (it seems).
I have a few Blood Angels and this guy was supposed to be with that force. The plan for them was to use them to practice skills on and at the end have a decent painted force. I still do that from time to time, but those who know me well also know I have Titans and I focus on them more than the Blood Angels.
It doesn’t mean I don’t adore the Blood Angels though, and after many months, I finally finished one!
Don’t get me wrong, I love painting games workshop minis. It’s the majority of my work after all, but every now and then, it’s great to paint something else. A friend of mine asked if I would paint the miniatures for his board game, Who Goes There, and I was only too happy to help!
The game is a bit like the film The Thing, and the characters have a cartoony style to them which was very different to my usual edge highlighting ventures. Here they are:
It’s be not played the game myself, and there were a lot of bits in the box, but the miniatures were fun to work on! He was super pleased with them too, which is always good!
