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!

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!

Personal Miniatures!!

I have started putting some time aside each week to work on my own miniatures. I want to clear some of my own backlog, and it is a good time to practice some skills too.

This week, I worked on some Iron warriors and some more freehand on the Warmaster Titan.

These guys just needed a little bit of touching up and dusting. They did not take long to finish and get put in the cabinet.

This guy’s weapon was broken beyond repair, so I had to look around for a new one. when the Horus Heresy box set drops, we plan on using them as Blood Angels, and I had a spare sword from the 40k ones I had a while back. This guy clearly grabbed a replacement weapon off a fallen Blood Angel!

The layer blending is not perfect. I think I need a darker mid tone so it doesn’t blend in with the light one as much.

I now have most of the troops done; just 6 regular guys, 12 terminators and then I can move on to the vehicles and dreadnoughts.

My other task was to do a bit more on the Warmaster, Captain Cogs. This machine is taking a long time but if I keep doing a little each week, then he’ll eventually get finished!

More orks!!

Who doesn’t need more orks?

I recently finished these mean, green fighting machines as a part of a commission for a client. I have done several orks for him before and it was a pleasure to do a few more to add to the valiant fighting force he already has!

I particularly like the killteam boss with his hat on!

Tonie – something a bit different.

I was recently contacted by a fellow on instagram who wanted something painting as a gift for his daughter. He explained to me that what he wanted painting was a thing called a ‘tonie.’ I had never heard of these before, considering I do not have children though, this is not surprising.

What the device does is enables you to record a message onto it, which can be played back to the child at any time. They are customisable too, so I was asked if I could paint it to look like his daughter.

I had to ensure that both the paints I use and the varnish are ‘child friendly’ first, once that was established, I was more than happy to have a go. Here are the results:

It was nice to paint something different too – I’ve never done anything like this before, and I do enjoy a challenge.

Krieg – All Done.

It seems to be the week of endings for me. Ptolus on Sunday and now the Krieg army. I have thoroughly enjoyed painting these miniatures. There has been a wide mix of both Forgeworld and 3D printed miniatures, as well as the new Kill Team. They’ve taken a fair bit of time to do, but I am so pleased with how they came out. I admit, I really liked painting the artillery and the tank that came with this batch, which I am sure will come as a surprise to no one! Here are the latest:

The only thing which saddens me about them, is never being able to see them all together. A shame, but I am sure they will do well against their foes! As I will never see them together, here are the rest of them, which will have to do!

I think I can safely say that this is the largest army I have ever painted! I feel a though I have gained some achievement points!

Raven Guard – Part 2

This week has mostly been spent painting Raven Guard. They are a part of the same army I worked on a couple of weeks ago, and I have used the same scheme, only this time it included a Land Raider Achilles. This made me happy because it’s a tank, and I love painting tanks.

Here they are in all their shining glory.

I am glad to have done these, I’m pleased with the edge highlights on all of them, I think they look sharp. This makes the battle scuffs on the tank look really good – at least I think so.

Krieg! part 3

The next part of the Krieg mega list is done. This time it was mainly weapons teams and recruits. The recruits have a white stripe on their head to tell everyone they are the newbies. The weapons teams have extra mud as they are laying down!

Here are some pictures.

The next batch includes a tank, more weapons platforms and bombs! It’s going to be fun.
