The Blighted Nyss Legionnaires are poster-children for how I grew unhappy with my Legion color scheme. Technically speaking I was pleased with how my Legionnaires turned out. But on the tabletop they just blended together in to a black and blue mass. The color scheme – originally picked out to be cold and hard and Read more about Blighted Nyss Legionnaires[…]
As much as painting ceremonial Exemplar armor can be tedious at times I really like way Exemplar look on the tabletop. What stood out to me while I was photographing this models was how much better the officer and standard bearer’s gold trim looked than the rest of the unit. In the couple years before Read more about Exemplar Errant[…]
For my second Carnivean I decided to change up its pose in two ways – I placed the head on facing forward instead of to the side (filing and greenstuffing the neck to accomodate this change) and I put a wrecked bonejack on the base under his front foot. Minor changes overall but just enough Read more about Carnivean[…]
Although I like the new bend in the wings I gave my second seraph, quality wise I don’t think the paint job lives up to his older brother. I was trying to add some more definition to the musculature and the end result looks more unpolished than anything else.
As Privateer Press Weekend at DieCon 8 was being planned, the organizers approached some of the local painters with an idea to give away models as door prizes and as an overall prize over the weekend. I had enough on my plate that I had to finish before DieCon that I couldn’t do too many Read more about Captain Bartolo Montador[…]
Despite the amount of skin that I had to paint I was able to work through these guys pretty quickly. They also gave me a good opportunity to work on using the P3 flesh line (Idrian, Khador, Midland, Rin).
I wasn’t a big fan of the stock pose of the Knight Exemplar Seneschal figure. Extraneous back banners aside, there was just something about how it held its swords that didn’t work for me. So that meant breaking out the jeweler’s saw and some putty and making some changes. The first and most obvious change Read more about Knight Exemplar Seneschal[…]
Apparently Everblight developed a fondness for bellbottoms some time during Hordes: Evolution and the Shepherds sure do emphasize that. Other than the cutting and reposing of one of the Shepherd’s left arm there’s very little special about these two — my typical Nyss colors on average Nyss sculpts.
I’m a big fan of the Aiyana and Holt. On top of being a solid unit on the tabletop, they’re some of my favorite sculpts in the Warmachine miniature line. They’re not swamped with accessories, but they’re great sculpts and fit right in with the look and feel of the Iron Kingdoms. Coming up with a Read more about Lady Aiyana and Master Holt[…]
I painted Gudrun towards the end of 2008 as a diversion from the Legion models I had been rapidly turning out. His color scheme was primarily chosen to let me test out P3’s Ordic Olive color, which I used on his cowl. The fleshtones are my Vallejo Model Color Rose Brown/Medium Skintone/Sunny Skintone combination that Read more about Gudrun the Wanderer[…]
