Are We Done with Orange Yet?

Nearly done with the orange, I just need to give the back row the last two highlights. After that it's rocks, base edges, gloss coat, decals, dullcote and grass. That should be doable over the weekend or early next week.

I'm still working on the turrets for these. While I finish getting those ready for paint I'll likely see about Jetbikes or Vypers.


The Navel Brigade

I haven't updated in awhile as I've been renovating our downstairs bathroom. As that's been wrapping up I've been getting some more time to paint 6mm stuff again. I've completed the cockpit glass, weapons and engines on the Falcon hulls. Now comes the long slog through the orange.

One hull got the first highlight. I edge highlight most of the tank, then go back and to the outside/higher edges with a lighter orange. After that I do the sharper corners lighter and finally put a dot of my lightest color right at the corner.


Thirteen Months in the Making

The last time the Void Spinners saw paint was July of last year, and I've finally got arround to making and painting the barrels for them. I wasn't a fan of the lack of detail on the Specialist Games versions so I useds some Forge World Night Spinner barrels instead. Thanks to the close-up there's some cleanup I have to do on a few of them still, but I hope to finish them up with the Shuriken Catapults on the Falcon hulls.

Speaking of, I finished the black and started on the blue weapons. Those should finish up next week, then it's on to the engines and cockpit glass. Then a whole lot of orange...


Invisible Hover Bikes

I finished the second highlight on the black this week but didn't get much more painting in beyond that. I'd like to finish the black next week and start on the Shuriken Catapults. While I'm painting them I'm also going to paint my newly converted Void Spinner barrels and finally get those finished up.

I'm hoping that the Vypers will get the fan treatment at somepoint, until that happens though I'll need a stand in. I cleaned, primed and basecoated these guys this week as well.

Finally, a gold star to the person who figures out what these are for. :P


The Long War

Painting black always seems to take the longest, right up until I start painting orange... Anyway, first black highlight is done and the second has been started (outside edges and air intakes). Once I finish that I just have the corner and point highlights for it.



I did the black on a dozen more tank hulls, and started on most of the first highlight on all 18. These are going to be my Falcons, Fire Prisms and Night Spinners. I'm converting turrets for all of them, and looking to magnetize the Falcons and Fire Prisms.

The end goal here is a Saim-Hann army for Fall In!, it's a lot of painting and converting though so we'll see how I do.


Epic Squats

I haven't been painting much recently, but I've been doing a bit of building and re-basing of my Squats. I'd like to get these all primed, with their bases done and they're nearly there. There's also a few more things (Land Train, Steel Hawks, War Hawks, Mole Mortars) that still need to be built, and I need to source 3 more Hearthguard models (that's the one empty base).

When the Mole Mortars are done my infantry will almost completely fill this tray except for a small .125"x.5" area. For some reason that's tremendously satisfying.


Northeast Epic Armageddon Tournament: Up to Eleven

Here's some pics from the games we had this past weekend. We ended up with 18 people after two dropped the day of. Some pick-up games were played Friday (including a couple Warmaster games), three tournament rounds were had on Saturday, and then six of us hung around for a few more games on Sunday. Anyway, enjoy the pics!



Steeling the Spotlight

Things have been quiet as I've been working on a Shadespire warband for a FLGS. They're almost done, I'll hopefully have pics next week. I've also been working on re-basing and finishing up some odds and ends for my Squats. This guy is one of those, a Steel Hawk from the article in Citadel Journal 14.

I'm still thinking on the War Hawk and Land Train cars also in the article. Any thoughts for a Squat looking Void Shield generator?


All the Base Colors of the Rainbow

I finished the orange bases last night and got the Orlocks on them. I took some shots of the bases on the cardboard terrain that inspired them. Not dead-on matches but they're close enough. Next up are the touch-ups and finsihing the Juves, Heavy and Leader.


Bright Orange Camouflage

The Rangers have been done for awhile, I needed to buy some Dullcote though before I could put the grass tufts on. Finally got around to that so here they are.

Not sure what's next, I'm been re-basing and touching up of my Orlocks, a Man O'War Orc fleet, re-basing and basecoating Squats, or painting some Robots for half-scale TiRoBEx on my workbench right now.


Shiny New Bases

I've been meaning to return to the Orlocks to re-do their bases and finish the Heavy Bolter and Juves for more than a couple of years now. I started on the bases last week. They're the new Underhive bases, painted in colors to match the old cardboard terrain. I've got another six that I plan to match to a piece out of Outlanders. Looking at the figures now, I also think I'm going to go back and re-highlight most of them. I thought these were good four years ago, I can definitely do better now.


I'm Ranging, Ripping Up the Sage

A quick update, I got the orange done on the Rangers. Hoping to tackle the helmets and weapons next week.


Adepticon 2018

Last bit of pics for today, Adepticon!

Adepticon 2018

Cold Wars 2018 Epic Armageddon Tournament

Some shots from the Cold Wars 2018 Epic Armageddon Tournament this past March. Enjoy!

Cold Wars 2018 Epic Armageddon Tournament

28mm Fantasy Sidetrack

Another quick update. I got asked by a FLGS to paint this guy for another customer. I don't normally do commissions but the figure looked cool and I wanted to try out a quick skin scheme.

I also realized that I never posted finished photos of Lupa. At some point I still might go back and do some finer highlights and do something with the pelt, but she's done enough to sit on a shelf for now.

Are Belong to the Eldar

I finished these nearly three weeks ago now, but a lost memory card and card reader kept them from being posted. I stuck with bone colors for the wrathbone and warm greys for the rocks. The windows and globe looking things were a CdA violet color that I had never tried out.

I'd also like to complete some Falcons for the upcoming NEAT, I still need to convert turrets so I just started on the bodies.

I worked on Rangers too, painting orange on these is a real pain. I think for the Guardians I'm going to have to airbrush the orange and carefully drybrush the bases.

I took one stand nearly to completion, the weapons and cloaks need to be finished still.


All Your Base

I started on the objectives with the hopes of finishing them before Cold Wars next weekend. The Wraithgate is all painted up, the others need most of the bone paints still. After something Maashes Caisteal said I spit up my three objectives into four. Now I can just swap out the Wraithgate when needed, rather than having to swap it with one of my opponents.

I also got a few coats of red down on the Avatar. Hoping to have him done for Adepticon.
