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!

Cold Wars 2018 Epic Armageddon Tournament

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

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.


There goes the other one.

The Phoenix are all finished up, I got the highlights done throughout the week and also did the engine exhaust. I added a little bit of blue and white edging on engines themselves, it's not overly noticeable though.

I magnetised the weapons in the Revenant, I need to convert up its Sonic Lances next and get going on the other three.

The second Phantom is mostly together now as well. I just need to add shoulders and finishing magnetising its weapons too.


Epic Games Day 2018-02-24

I took some shots from our games this past Saturday. Enjoy!

Epic Day - 2018-02-24


Lost a Wing...

I was hoping to finish the Phoenix last night but with friends coming over for dinner tonight the "other domestic duties as assigned" clause in my relationship was activated. Maybe I'll get to them this Sunday or next Tuesday. Either way, I'm looking forward to being done with them. It's time for something else. I did manage to get the first highlight done on most of them. Two still need a little work.

I know it's time for something else because I've been wanting to work on something else. I did cheat a little bit and built a Phantom, as well as a Revenant. Their weapons are magnetised. The last Phantom is going to involve a bit more cutting in pinning as I'm hoping to put it in a running position.


Coming in Hot!

I finished up the weapons and cockpits and got halfway through touching up and shading the orange on the Phoenix. Hoping to finish that next week and move on to their highlights.


For Science!

The Phoenix needed a bit of touch up after a failed attempt of actual flight from being left on the top of my car. One's still going to need a bit of putty and I'm going to have to figure out how to make a tail fin tip for another. Anyway, the black is done. On to the gems and weapons this week. Hopefully the orange the week after that.


Orange is the New Orange

New year, same old color. This time on aircraft though! I started the Phoenix last night, and have been prettying the Avatar up for some paint. His sword got sharpened and he's based in such a way that I can plop him down on a Court of the Young King base when I get to it.
