So I've been painting a big nid ands its getting there just got a dry brush to do on its gun when the orange is dry. Then stick it together and put it on its base. I don't normally paint model in bits but to be honest this had fallen to bit a while back … Continue reading WIP bug and painting recipe
So recently like many others I've been play around with GW new "wonder" paints. And I've found they have done something truly amazing for me... Inspired me to paint my Nids. Its funny really as I picked nids to try contrast paints on because I'd fallen out of love with them, not touched them for … Continue reading And then Vespids came out to play
So after testing contrast paints the other day on a long forgotten nid I had, I though I might as well use them as they were intended. So here is a small swarm. Still need to finish the bases but they are getting there. And the contrast paints I really helping me paint lots at … Continue reading Nids in progress
I've been playing D&D with the same group for years now however last week are regular GM through in a curveball he got models and a map out. Which I know is normalish but for our group its only ever been pen and paper. So today I quickly found converted and painted a mini for … Continue reading D&D with models! Madness
So like many other I've picked up the recent GW contrast paints. I did this however with a very specific project in mind. My long neglected Nids for 40K, this is a force I started long ago and wanted to be a big swarm army. The overall colour scheme I came up with ages ago … Continue reading To contrast or not to contrast that is the question
Well finished the first Goliath test model (base excluded). And he worked out ok. The bit I think I like the best is the orange pants, they really work to tie in the yellow with the duller tones, and it was a spare of the moment colour choice as well! The machine stuff on his … Continue reading 1st one down
After finishing off my Bloodreaver unit earlier in the week I thought it might be a good point to have a look at the force in full. So I borrowed the other halfs light box and got a few pics. It was really nice just to get all the models together and see where I … Continue reading Its Starting to Look a Like … An Actual Army.
So been mainly plugging away at my Khorne Bloodbound force recently, so I fancyed a change from over muscled combat crazed murderers, so I've started paint my ... Goliath Necromunda Gang! Ok so I have perhaps had better idea for break but nevermind. So last couple of nights I've been starting a test model for … Continue reading A change is as good as a rest!
Finally finished off the last 3 in my squad of 20 Bloodreavers, it seems like I've been doing them forever now. These last 3 are not the best but I'm happy enough with them. I'll work on getting these based, along with there 2 mates I did a bit ago. At that point I'll try … Continue reading And then there were none
Finally got the leader of my Khorne Mortal force done. Overall I'm fairly happy with this model, I wanted the skull to stand out and his cloak to billow around like a black cloud, and I reckon I'm close enough. I tried a very odd way to paint his deamon dog dry brushing with progressively … Continue reading The Boss Is in the Room
