I have painted the Nemesis board game miniatures recently for a friend, and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. The alien creature were varied and allowed me to play around with different colour schemes, while still appealing to my gross side. The named characters were interesting, not terribly made and had little details to make them individual.
The other prize from Simply Warhammer’s channel was Brôkhyr Iron-master for the Leagues of Votann. This is the first time I have worked on any miniatures from that range, and I found that they were fun. The colour scheme was the winner’s own, and I used that as a starting place to get the miniatures looking great. They used contrast paint, so it was a bit of a challenge transferring that over to the paint I usually use, but who doesn’t like a challenge?
Here they are:
They are interesting miniatures, and I would definitely like to paint some more of them in the future!
Another one of my favourites! I adore painting this miniature, and have not had the chance to do so since 2019 – when I entered him into Everchosen. It feels like a lifetime ago.
This one was a prize paint for someone on Simply Warhammer’s channel. I was only too happy to discuss the mini with the winner and find out what they wanted. After some thought, they decided they wanted to have a Slaanesh feel to the mini as he would go with the Emperor’s Children Army they have planned.
Here is what I did:
He was painted at T2 level, and I added the bonus freehand to give it that required flavour. I am pleased with how the design on the cloak looked, and I know that the winner is too!
As most of you know, I love painting tanks. I’ve had this one kicking about for a while, and decided to paint it yellow. Most people do not like painting yellow! I am not too bothered by it now as I have done it a fair few times. I find that if you get the undercoat right, then it is a lot easier to apply. I try and use a red based brown – like Doombull by Games Workshop – and then apply several thin coats of Averland Sunset. You can also use pink to highlight it, which I have done here using P3’s Carnal Pink. Here are the results:
I used the airbrush for the base yellow, and for applying the grime at the bottom of the tank too. The top part with the gun on I have not attached as yet. As I do not intend to keep this one, it will be easier to post this way!
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.
I recently painted some blue assault intercessor and mentioned I had done some others using the same airbrush highlight technique. I have enjoyed the results of the blue, and think the red has turned out well too. Here they are:
I definitely like this type of highlighting and shall be using it again very soon.
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.
This guy was a prize for a recent give away from Simply Warhammer. The winner of this character give away picked the Biologus. He was a delight to paint. I loved the contrast between traditional Death Guard grunge and brightly coloured jars. The puddles on the base made a difference, and I think that adding flowers just make the colours stand out all the more.
All in all, I am super pleased with how he had turned out and I know the winner is too. I hope to paint more Death Guard in the future – they’re just loads of fun!
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!!
