I have finally finished Primaris Dante! He took me ages to complete but I am so proud of how he turned out. Here are the finished pictures:
I’ve had a spot of time to work on my own miniatures recently, so after finishing Primaris Dante – more on him later – I worked on some freehand on the Warmaster.
I have started painting cogs on some of the panels, so carried on. It’s more non-metallic gold, but in freehand form rather than on an entire miniature. It has its challenges, but it’s still fun.
Here are some pictures:
The trim will end up being gold, but is currently based as warm brass. I also need to rub the pencil lines away and clean it up a bit, but so far it’s coming along well.
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.
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.
I have finished the next instalment of Krieg soldiers! This time it was infantry, two commissars and a flag carrier. They are a mix of Forgeworld and 3D prints and have been fun to work on. All the sculpts are different, which has bright it’s own challenges, but here they are in all their shining, muddy glory:
The flag was the perfect opportunity to practice a little freehand on, and I chose a design that was pretty simple but effective. I found it quick to do because it had only three colours and they are flat rather than blended. It just a case of transferring it onto the flag and filling in the colours.
I also featured two of my favourite miniatures together – bomb Krieger and Hero Commissar. All of these miniatures were fun to work on, which is good, because I have another batch to go. This time, it’s 30+ infantry, 6 weapons teams and several crates. I hope to be done by Friday, but we shall see what the week brings!
My latest task has been to paint a few Krieg miniatures – both Games Workshop and third party. The first batch of infantry was around thirty miniatures and six horses. Here they are:
My next set is a batch of 48, then some weapons platforms and another lot of 39 guys.
It is a good job I like the miniatures!!
When someone asks me to paint Ahriman for them, it makes me happy. I love the character and the miniature, but at this point I have to paint them for other people as I have loads!
This is the latest one that was a commission!
I’m so pleased with his cloak and the vibrant green warp fire. It was difficult to send him off… thankfully, he has now done so!
It feels like this week has been a whirlwind! Multiple vet visits, the dentist for the first time in years and Foundry work feels like it has kept me away from painting a great deal.
I have been working through a Daughter’s of Khaine commission when not doing other chores however and I feel they are coming on nicely.
Most of those pictures are still works in progress. I do like the miniatures but they are very spindly which has been a challenge.
Thankfully, we are both now on the mend from Covid, which means the Foundry miniatures that have been ordered are mostly caught up. Numerous trips to the post office have occurred but it feels good to mostly clear the backlog.
The vet trips were all successful. The two kittens are now spayed so no more yowling for boys at 3am! Big bud Roscoe’s eye has also mostly healed. We need to continue with his drops for another couple of weeks and the ulcer should be gone.
The dentist was as pleasant an experience as I could expect, but I need 4 fillings… less fun.
Next week I start college on Tuesday mornings doing an Introduction to Counselling course. I am back at the dentist too but I hope to get the Daughters of Khaine finished and get some work on Primaris Dante done! I am going to be busy!
When I asked my husband what he wanted for Christmas this year, his response was painted Titans. This is something I can do! With gusto! I love Titans.
Some of them were half painted by him already, so it’s a case of finishing them off and making them look groovy. I started with the two Warhounds and have them done to a reasonable level already.
Here they are:
They are not perfect, but I am looking forward to blowing them up in the near future.
This is not my first intercessor squad. I have long since stopped counting how many I have painted. This is the first squad in 3rd Company for the Blood Angels I have been collecting.
I started painting them before the Pandemic.
I have finally finished them. I’m super pleased with how they turned out. I feel the edge highlighting is crisp and the colours decent. I used a background to take some pictures and then took some others without it.
They have now joined their brothers on the shelf and hopefully, I’ll be able to finish some more pre-pandemic minis soon!
