Title: Sigur in Space! - Infinity, Harlequins, Orks, all things Sci-Fi.
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 17, 2017, 02:48:21 PM
Hej, I think it's time I start a collective threat for all my stuff on here as well. :)

In this I will post minis i'm currently working on as well as older stuff I did every once in a while. For now though I'll start with something brand new: the 40k 8th edition starter box Dark Imperium.

(http://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2017_06/boxfrontschrift.jpg.63e663be6010496695858d2a596fb6b9.jpg)

First time I buy a 40k starter box since 2nd edition. Last game of 40k I've had was in 2013, I completely skipped 7th edition. Of course I often get out my own 40k figures, mostly to play various skirmish games (Tomorrow's War, Flying Lead, 5150:Star Army, a modified version of the brilliant Chain of Command, and so on. I really want to try Stargrunts2 as well, because it's said to be great.).

Anyway, all the changes heralded for 8th edition got me curious and I thought it may be time to look into the 40k rules again. A series of articles in which I take a look at the box and the new rules is currently being published on Tale of Painters. Parts 1&2 are online already, there are two more to come dealing with the rules and my opinion on them. After that I'll proceed to the miniatures in this box.

...and in here I'll get right to them. Somehow I thought up the idea of painting the minis in the box even though I neither own a SM, nor a Chaos army. During my >20 years 40k career I did collect both at some point, but then firmly went with Orks, Sisters of Battle and Imperial Guard, all of them to this day even though they don't get out very often. Maybe this changes with 8th edition.

Now for some pictures:

...and some of the Primaris Marines built for painting:

I'll start with painting the Nurgle minis and then proceed to the Primaris Marines. The reason for this is that I have no idea how to paint them. Do you have any ideas for which chapter I should go for?

How comfortable are you with yellow?

I've always thought the Imperial Fists (http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_Fists) were a striking and underrepresented color scheme.

I'm going to do Space Wolves myself.

If you are going for yellow and under represented I've always favoured Lamenters. Yellow AND black and white checks? Lovely.

If I relent and pick up this box I'm swaying towards Crimson Fists.

I really like yellow Marines. I've painted quite a lot of them in the past indeed. And I've always been partial to Lamenters due to their crazy backstory and great colour scheme.
This actually is the second vote for Howling Gryphons I got already.  o_o

I spent about four hours today building figures from this set and I've only got the Nurgle leader, the big drone and 6 Poxwalkers done. How did you do ALL of those so fast? Maybe I'm far too slow at removing all the mouldlines...  :D
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 17, 2017, 09:33:53 PM
@noigrim: It takes another level of badassity to wear yellow armour with hearts on it. ;) But here's my actual theory: In 40k everything's adorned in skulls. All day, every day, everybody's used to it. To them a heart is the equivalent to what a skull is to us. So really remarkable and out there. :p

@Gibby: Oh yeah, I just leave'em on and photoshop them away in the end. I got a special filter for that. ;) Nah, I just got my set surprisingly early.


WIP of the Poxwalkers!

How did you managed to paint them already !?  :o

Great unit. Could you post some close ups ?
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 18, 2017, 02:53:36 PM
@driller: Thanks very much. :) I basically made the recipe up as I went along. The beauty of zombies or Nurgly things is that you can't do anything wrong really. Over the dark green primer coat I started on the skin with a mix of skin tone paint mixed with a little green and a little brown, applied that (not everywhere, more like a pre-shading thing), highlighted it roughly with  a lighter shade, highlighted everything by hand with almost white paint (all the boils, faces, most explosed bits), then I started applying various washes (brown, red-brown, green, purple, blue, whatever), most of them mixed with a little flesh colour. Did another coat of that, when I inked in some more shades where required, did the boils and that's is so far really. Now I need to do some additional details, mostly faces and those bloody tentacles and spikes those are going to be loads of work). So yeah, as I said: you can't do anything wrong really and don't be afraid to use colours. Stay away from black and dark brown washes as much as possible and instead go crazy with colours. Don't get them all mixed up either, because if you apply green followed by red you'll be stuck with something dark and uninteresting. Shake things up between the Poxwalkers, so each of them looks different.

@AWu: Thanks very much. I'll see that I can do closer-ups once they're done.


Update!

Now that the clothes and belts are mostly done. I can go on to doing the weapons and equipment.
Hope you like them and I'm still taking suggestions on what chapter to do for the Primaris Marines!

For the Space Marine chapter, I'd second Howling Griffons or another quartered scheme - really fantastic when done well.

Another Chapter that I like is The Scythes of the Emperor (http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Scythes_of_the_Emperor).

Good color scheme (I seem to be partial to yellow and black), plus if you care about the fluff at all they would be prime candidates for Primaris Marine reinforcements.

A question, if you don't mind: How do the Chaos Marines scale with the Primaris Marines?

Also, thanks very much for the plague victim color walkthrough. It will help a bunch when I paint mine.

@driller: no worries. :)

@Elbows: Alrighty, noted. :)

@Inso: Oh yes, I'm a big fan of colourful Space Marines. If one plays space pixies vs. helldemons or something there's no reason to restrain oneself. It's like doing Napoleonics armies in actual campaign state rather than full dress. It may make more sense, but it's no fun. Thanks for the link; very pretty indeed.

@eMills: That's the third vote for Scythes of the Emperor already. :D The CSM are freaking huge, but not quite as freaking huge as the Bigleg Marines. Not by much, maybe half a head or so they're shorter.

Getting there slowly...

@tomrommel1: Thanks very much. :) I'm sure you will be pleased.

@DonVoss: Cheers. I can't paint them all superpretty for the reason that I'm not getting paid for those and I don't really do a lot of 40k playing and don't really have a ton of use for them either in the forseeable future. But yeah, I'm trying to get as much as possible out of them before I have to move on!

@Nord: Thanks very much! I'll post some closer-up shots once I got more done.

@majorsmith: Many thanks!


Heyhey, here's a WIP shot of the Death Guard testmini:

Got bored with the testmini and it basically served its cause. Now I bring the rest of the guys up to that level and then finish them all together. After that I'll do the characters and the drone.

Still collecting votes for which SM chapter I should paint my Primaris Marines as!

Fantastic.  I'm still not sold on the models, but they look extremely good in the creepy white scheme...fantastic!  I may have to do my upcoming ones in a similar scheme :D (not those models, but plaguemarines nonetheless!)

I'm not a fan of the whole Nurgle thing... but you have done a superb job on them :) .

I am happily waiting for when you start the Primaris marines :) . If this is the standard, then I reckon I'll be suitably impressed (even if you don't choose Griffons ;) ).

They look splendid in white!
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Nord on June 23, 2017, 01:48:07 PM
Quite surprised by your palette on the Nurgle marines. In some ways I am tempted to say paint the Primaris Marines in black - either templars or raven guard, always liked those chapters. An ironic response is to go with green - maybe dark angels or even funnier Mantis Warriors. The yellow Lamentors are a good choice too. Whatever you do, don't go with Ultramarines (yawn).
Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on June 23, 2017, 04:01:03 PM
@Elbows: Thanks very much!

@noigrim: Noted. :)

@Ultravanillasmurf: Thanks very much! They are bit more colourful now! :D

@Breazer: Cheers. I don't think they'll look all that different. :)

@Inso: Thanks, Sir! I'm still taking votes on the Marines. By now an impressive list of chapters have been compiled indeed, with some interesting ones leading in the votes. I guess I'll keep the whole thing running until I get started on the Primaris Marines. Which may well take a while considering the bloody details on these GW minis.... ;)

@AWu: Thanks muchly!

@Nord: Thanks for the comment! I've put you down with Black Templars, Raven Guard, Dark Angels, Mantis Warriors and Lamenters. I have to say that I prefer SM to wear bold, primary colours to be honest. Just looks best on the table. But of course there are some very nice other colour schemes out there. I painted a bunch of Raven Guard minis in the past and they look nice once they're on the table and maybe have some nice, contrasting basing. Not sure I ever did Black Templars actually. I painted a bunch of Dark Angels characters and converted/painted the Mantis Warriors' Dust Prophet Librarian chap. Always had a soft spot for the Lamenters, but never painted a single one. :D


New WIP shot of the Death Guard Marines:

I just looked at your Death Guard minis on my tablet. This allowed me to zoom in on the photos, and I have to say they are Exquisite! You should post closers shots of these.

As to which chapter you should do, I say anything but Imperial Fists. (That's what I plan to paint and I don't need the intimidation.) How about Blood Ravens? The red would contrast nicely with your white Death Guard.

Those Nurgle models are coming out beautifully.
I initially did not like the models, but subsequently changed my mind and bought Dark Imperium, and once I had the models in hand I realised I was right. What had put me off initially was more easily identfiable in the photos in the rule books: I prefer a rusty, decayed technology look than excessive gooey bits, and these guys have a lot of the latter, but it's the GW paint job which emphasised the fleshy stuff excessively, I think, by making it a bright shade of pink which looks healthier and more decay-free than any self-respecting nurgleyboy should. In more muted colours they're fine.
In your white (if it remains so!) incarnation they're splendid.

@Michka, AWu: I noticed a thing Lead-Adventures does is scaling down photos for some reason (probably so too large ones don't mess up the forum layout. Hence the extra small versions on here it seems. :D I put a direct link to the picture underneath the latest WIP shot below.

@driller: Thanks very much, noted. You also commented on Twitter, right?

@Vanlak: Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I guess GW's (understandable) directive for all their 'eavy metal painters is a squeaky clean and colourful style. The've done that for a bunch of years, which a.) doesn't go well with certain forces, such as Nurgly things and b.) (I think) makes their models look worse than they are in many cases. I can fully understand why they go for this look of course, but it's nice to see alternate takes. That's what mini painting is all about after all - it's completely different for each of us and the results will always be different.

@Andym: Thanks very much. :)



New WIP of the Death Guard. These days it's insanely hot 'round here (by our standards) and I gotta do other stuff than painting Death Guard I'm afraid, so progress is slow. However, most of the DG dudes are mostly done now (they still need work here and there for an extra nice look, but oh well). In the back you can see the three characters whom I currently focus on:

Anyway, next on my to-do list: The drone.

@tomrommel1: Cheers. :)

@Ultravanillasmurf: The box is pretty good actually. Have a look at my 4-part review of the box here:

Many people didn't like the bases and I wasn't sure about them myself. Either way, in the end I caved in and threw some puddles of green stuff onto the bases, along with some red-ish tufts I'd originally planned to use as well. I'm still not sure about this solution, but I guess it works better than the pure rocks/sand overall.

Thanks for all the comments! :)

@Gargobot: Cheers!

@Grumbledook: :D Yeah, as I wrote before - it's quite a childish thing to go out and just buy this big new shiny box, but I was curious about the new rules. Which is he flimsiest excuse ever, but oh well. :D

@Storm Wolf: :D I know the feeling. Last 40k starter set I bought was 2nd edition as well!

@fluffy05: Thanks for commenting! :)

@tomrommel1: Thank you very much, Sir!


Hej, here I am again with Sci-Fi(-ish) things, and Space Orks at that!

When it comes to 40k I own 3 armies (and probably always will): Sisters of Battle (because they're cool), Imperial Guard (of various kinds, because it was my first army) and Orks. Those are one of my pet projects. As a young'un I owned 2nd edition codex Orks and been gawking at the photos a lot. It was all metal though (except for the monopose ones from the 2nd edition starter set), thus unaffordable for young me (well, at least next to Imperial Guard, which of course also were all metal, except for Stormtroopers). In 2006 I started doing this army of my dreams by collecting second hand Orks and Gretchins off ebay and collectors. Back then this was possible (I also collected a sizeable force of Squats). These days  ebay is just insane when it comes to prices for ANTHING GW that's OOP.

Anyway, with the help of this and the excellent 1992 multipart plastic Orks I got together quite an army over the years. All models from between 1987 and 1995 because them's the good old days of proper Orky Orks. Great models, great background, great artwork (love Paul Bonner's Orks drawings!), great books.

(http://skirmishwargaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/space-ork-raidersschrift11.jpg)

I really should take some more photos of my old orks again. Lost most of the pics in a hard drive crash and now with the photobucket disaster (btw: screw you, Photobucket!).

Most of my Boyz (and Nobz. And Skarboyz. And Buggies. And some guns. And the Dreadnought.)  are Goffs, Looterz of course Deathskulls, Kommandos are Blood Axes, Meganobz (and some boyz) are Bad Moons and so on. Vehicles are a bit of a problem. I do own a Battlewagon, but nowadays that model probably rather qualifies as a Trukk.


AAaaaaaaanyway, of course I also own a rather large bunch of 1998 style Orks. Never used them all that much though to be honest. Between 2011 and 2013 I painted a rather large army though for a gentleman in France. Despite my preference of old-school Orks, I also do like the new-style ones a ton. To cut things a bit shorter - I'm working on an Orks army for a gentleman!

Here are the 10 test minis; a bunch of Goff boyz:

Title: Re: Sigur in Space! - Dark Imperium
Post by: Battle Brush Sigur on November 13, 2017, 04:17:56 PM
@Elk101: Thanks very much! :) I'm a fancypants man, so I went with some pre-shading on those. Black, white, thin mid-green (kinda like goblin green actually, but slightly muted) over all of it, highlights with pale yellow, wash with brown and green (varies between orks, so I get some slight variation in the skin tones), final highlights. High contrast fun times. Because if we're having green ork skin with bright red right next to it this is not the time and place for subtlety in colours. Also: It's bloody space orks! :P

@tomrommel1: Cheers! :)

So yeah, things are a bit chaotic here in the workshop. Had a wargames show this saturday (report to follow!), for which I had to finish some Guild Ball stuff and a not-quite-platoon of 28mm British Paras, and we're currently moving house and today I'm actually moving my paint stations to the new place. Last night I finished doing the rust on the metallics on the Orks, next up will be all the checkers. So if I manage to keep a relative amount of sanity over this task I guess the next photos you'll see will be shot at the new place already. But before that it'll take a while getting stuff rom point A to point B. I started with the cool stuff (the lead/plastic/resin mountain, minis in general, terrain, boardgames, game boxes, old school GW books), so that's at the new place already (still in boxes though). Not sure what I'll do with the post-1998 GW books and such. I'm afraid I'll have to sell some stuff; possibly beastmen and my Valhallans army. Oh, and a ton of old Shadowrun and The Dark Eye books. I'd love to keep them, but I just can't.

Anyway, that's the rather off-topic update. :D

Trying to slip back into my regular work schedule, and here's an Orky update on the Goffs:

(http://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2017_11/wip3.jpg.cf75e86096eb53157a1967005d4d4554.jpg)

Haven't moved the proper photo setup here yet, hence the weird half-and-half background. :p Anyway, silvery metallics are done, checkerboard pattern bits are done, clothes are done and most of the damaged paintjob effect. Next I'll do the copper-colored metallics (mostly CCW handles and some details) plus weathering, after that I guess I'll have to tackle teeth and horns and after that it's the rest of the details for me!

Well, I'm starting to settle into the new surroundings, got the essentials set up and decided to test a few new photo setups. Here's the finished Orks, a total of 61 Boyz and 2 Nobz:

All of them (well, mostly):

Hey, chaps!

Look what hit my doorstep last week:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_02/WP_20180212_16_53_22_Pro.jpg.c8c80e78a72e4f9b6711e2093a4360c3.jpg)

I'm not a GW fanboy. Unless they tickle that late-80s-early-1990s nerve in me. Then I have online buddys of old (thanks a ton, Steven!) pester the good people at Warhamme World (thanks to the people of WHW. Great service!) into sending me 2 copies of Realm of Chaos - Slaves to Darkness, that bloody huge box of SM HQ tanks, a Slaves to Darkness shirt and a Slaves to Darkness cup. Okay, one of the books and the SM tanks are for a friend, the rest's for myself. Now I own two shirts with stuff on them: An Oldhammer shirt and now that Slaves to Darkness shirt. Never been a 'band shirt' guy, or stuff like that.

Over the past days I read Slaves to Darkness again. Never thought I'd hold that book in my hands; pretty amazing. The reproduction is, as far as I can see, flawless. Great stuff. And I don't think it's just a Nostalgia thing. This book (along with The Lost and the Damned) is just interesting. It gets the creative juices going. The artwork, the little vignettes, the general fluff, the humour.... it's just not a catalogue to sell figures with illustrations which show figures as they are available, it's stories and fluff and whatnot. Of course there are rules in there as well. For 40k (Rogue Trader), WHFB and the Warhammer Roleplaying Game. Anyway, highly recommended to anybody who's interested in Chaos or fantasy in general.



And here's a WIP shot of the first 4 Harlequins out of a warband of 6 I'm currently doing:

@hubbabubba: Thanks, Sir-with-good-name. Yeah, they re-issued Slaves to Darkness just like they did with the RT rulebook. Passed on that (because I got a hardcopy of the rules from back then), but when it comes to Realm of Chaos... if you're an old person like I am it's a must-have. The reproduction is, as far as I can tell, flawless. They retouched the whole thing a little bit with digital trickery (mostly the photos of miniatures in the middle, with way ramped-up colours), but it's all done very subtly and well. Highly recommended; i'll definately get The Lost and the Damned as well, which in my mind is the even better book.

@Andym: Cheers. :) Comments like this help me keep on painting these figures. Well, that and the rather tight deadline. :D




I'm currently working on the green Harlequin:

Ah Harlequins.. those horrible figures that only stand a chance of looking decent when painted very well - and these look fantastic for sure!

I particularly like the fiery one on the right, with red-going-into-orange and yellow.. more complementary rather than contrasting colours I guess, and more transitions because of it. Although the more I look at them, the more I like them all!

Thanks for letting us know about the Realms of Chaos reprint. That just made my day.
And I love the classic Orks. So bright and cheerful. Makes me want to paint Orks, which I haven't wanted to do in years.

But those Harlequins...

@Elbows: Oh yes, I love 2nd edition Orks. The ones above are commission work (ironically for someone who ALSO loves the 1st/2nd edition Orks and wants to have more time painting those, so he outsourced the painting of the newer Orks to me. :D ); I collected my 1st/2nd edition Orks army between 2006 and 2009. Unfortunately I lost all the photos of them and have to reshoot them again at some point in time.

@Coenus Scaldingus: Oh, I really, really dig the Plastics. Of course they got less character than the original ones, but that goes for everything nowadays, eh? ;) Anyway, I really like the new plastics. They look proper nice. Thanks a ton for the compliments though. :)

@Michka: Glad to be of help. ;) Only downside is that they're Warhammer World Exclusive, but if you have a friend who goes there, I hear they can order and pay them for you and WHW will ship them to you directly. Thanks for the comments on the painting too!

@Grimmar: Cheers, much appreciated!



Well, thanks for all the positive comments, guys! I'm having a hard time pretending that these Harlequins aren't a bit straining by now in terms of how long I've been working on these bloody 6 figures already, but I'm getting there. The comments certainly help.

The last Harlequin has been added now, as well as bases. So we got a blue one now as well. Hope you like them!

Now for the last bits of detailwork which as we all know is the most excruciating part. :D I already took a peek at the next batch of figures and I'm happy to report that I'll stick to 40k for now. It's going to be an exciting melange of power armour, heavy armour and super heavy armour. ;)

@hubbabubba: Thank you, Sir!


No huge news on the Harlequins I'm afraid. Currently I'm just ironing out detailstuff, so there isn't much exciting new stuff to see. So I decided to take a picture of what I currently got on my table instead, all of it at varying stages of completion:

Right, thanks for the comments! Currently painting trousers, the odd shoe I haven't painted yet, and some more details. The main thing that's left to do is the dudes in the gimp masks and over-alls and the dudes with the big hammers and coats. I plan to finish those guys tonight, and then base the whole force. This allows me to sit back, do some French Napoleonic mounted Gendarmes and hopefully some Super Dungeon Explore figures before the rest of the Nurgle force pops up.

@Andym: Thanks! And there's yet more to come! Very much looking forward to that next batch, because I think there might be some heavier support in there. :) I'm left in the dark about this for now, but I hear the models (which I get built and converted already) have been in the works for a while now, so it shouldn't take too long until I know more details.


Until then I'll spend some time with these Goffs here:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_05/wip1.jpg.6a2bffecb31840effd6d9ac04463d19d.jpg)

These are the second batch for the Orks army for which I did ~60 slugga Boyz in late 2017.

1 Warboss
1 Nob with Waagh Banner
1 Weirdboy
1 Painboy
6 Nobz
60 Shootaboyz
6 Boyz with Big Shootaz


Hooray!

Okay, I have to admit that for the latest few steps I broke and divided the horde up in "dem boys" and Nobz/characters. Up until then I painted them all in one go. There's a slight light at the end of the tunnel on the boys (ammo belts, details like teeth dangling from belts and such and several ribbons left to do, plus final check-up to see what I forgot). Lots to do on the nobz and characters, and then the eyes on all of the models...

Well, not really. The Painboy's only ca.80% finished, the Warboss 90%, the Weirdboy is still pretty much unpainted (just based and the skin's done). So those will be the things I'll work on the next days.

Hope you like dem boyz! :)

Hope you like him! Just like every single other mini in the army he's a little bit converted. If you look closely (it#s a bit hard in the photos, but believe me, I have looked closely at every single one of those chaps :P ) there's not two single minis alike in this army. It's really impressive. I didn't build them, I just painted them.

It's a warhammer/Age of Sigmar Shaman I think. With a converted staff. It's very nice!

@Andym: Thanks very much! Yeah, it's a new Orc shaman with the staff converted (as Sir_Theo pointed out already).

@hubbabubba: Thank you! That's always one of the most flattering kinds of compliments. The funny thing is is that not only me not really digging the Ork redo that happened in 1998 made me collect the Orks army of younger me a bunch of years ago (all 1st and 2nd edition Orks), but also the gentleman I paint these Orks I just posted for is collecting one of these old-school only Orks as well. Which is why he lacks the time and inclination to pain these new-style Orks himself. :D So yeah, there are several of us who feel the same way you do.

Right, let's move on to Infinity for once!

WIP PanO team:

I'm currently working on these chaps here, followed by a Yu Jing team and then some Haqqislam minis. Funnily enough, I never painted Yu Jing before. Should be fun.

Here's the Yu Jing team (also still kinda WIP):

Hope you like them so far! First time I'm painting Yu Jing, believe it or not.

Here's a WIp shot of the Haqqislam figures:

Last WIP of the Haqqislam minis. Added the big Al Fasid and some odd lighting. :P

These Infinity models look absolutely fantastic. I know how tiny and detailed they are to paint, too.

They're all great but I love the high-contrast blue on the PanO squad.

@Randell: :D Thanks very much! I guess Infinity-heads are over in more Infinity-centric forums. I guess it would also get more attention if I'd made a separate thread for these Infinity minis, but I don't want to clutter LAF with threads to be honest. Anyway, all the more thanks to you and the others who dropped by and took the time to comment! :) Funny thing on the side: Few days ago I posted a kinda ruddy snapshot of some Malifaux figures (WIP) I'm working on over on Twitter and the photo got a TON of likes and a bunch of retweets. Up there with the all made-up infinity shots with terrain and all. Maybe I'm underestimating the popularity of Infinity vs. Malifaux. It's very interesting to have one's perceptions of things put to the test.

@tomogui: Thanks, Sir! Yus, always fun painting Infinity minis. These here I got pre-assembled and they had some super glue stuck here and there, which I had to take care off. Didn't make things easier. :D Cheers, the cool thing about going high-contrast is that you don't really need any contrasting colours in there as you got the dark/light contrast on there, which leads to this very different aesthetic, which I really enjoy, especially with dark blue shiny stuff. Love it.

@OSHIROmodels: Thanks very much once more! I got the models last week, by the way. Lovely, lovely, lovely. No idea when I get the time to do anything with them, but at least I got them now, just in case. ;)


Right, Infinity minis are done now. :)

@Andym: That's just photoshopped in. Not that I know much about photography, but I think it makes the whole picture look extremely askew in terms of composition. :D

@Andym: Thanks very much. That's might kind of you.

@Ultravanillasmurf: Once more - thanks very much!

@Randell: Oh, don't worry. :D With these Infinity minis it's kinda hard to tell if that happened or not and it's often only noticeable when you paint those specific bits. Either way, I think they turned out well and I hope that you like them. :)

So let's see what's next on the list. More Nurgle stuff, I suppose. Well, as soon as the replacement part for the Malifaux figures (http://"http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=103777.15") (feel free to visit the thread about those chaps here: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=103777.15 (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=103777.15) ) arrives. Then I can finish those, and THEN I can go on (or back) to Nurgly Death Guardy things.

The past two months I've also been working on a slightly out of the ordinary side project resulting in these:

These aren't commission jobs, but a bday present for my brother. The "Blue Bomber" (ehem) is a third party controller I'd only gotten to test the techniques I wanted to apply to the proper present one. Took me ages, it was a voyage with many ups and downs. Once I finally called it done I got out the original Nintendo GC controller to make it the proper Ninja Gaiden themed "production model". :p My brother's hugely into Smash Brothers and pines for Ryu Hayabusa to be added to the roster at some point. (btw: If you hold any power over the deeds of Nintendo, please make that a thing. That would be swell. :D ). Hence the theme. Learned a lot about GC controllers over the past 8 weeks, I have to say.

Gave the controllers to him on Thursday (the blue one more for show rather than for play), he was highly pleased.

But that's all past now and yesterday I started doing proper (but unglamorous things) again: administrative stuff, preparing new models for painting, priming stuff, varnishing the Infinity minis, etc. In the mean time I left scatter terrain I've been painting on the side on the table over night. It's generally not a good idea to leave fresh fruit and vegetable lying out over night in July. When I turned on the desk light today I found the table crawling with these:

A huge swarm of chaos cultists, nibbling at the half-painted plums and cheese. I'll try to shoo them off now by basing and priming them. Wish me luck.

Heyhey, here we got shots of the test minis for the Chaos cultists:

The only orders I had for these was "not necessarily the same colour scheme as on the Nurgle dudes, but make the basing the same". So I basically was free to act as I wanted. Which threw me a little to be honest. In the end I went off of the 3rd edition chaos cultists studio paintjob and went on from there. Hope you like them!

Since the first 27-ish figures are done I'm working on the rest now:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_07/wip5.jpg.d526545ec95be4853ec03f2ebc7b4b43.jpg)


The temperatures aren't making this any easier. :D Apart from that I have to start preparing for Vienna Miniatures Convention in early August:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_07/40544c51ebd1b468b993b9f9fa53cc95-rimg-w508-h720-gmir.jpg.1b7b094b308a1ce9bcbd8ccc28061118.jpg)


Highly recommending this convention. It's going to be a big deal (for what conventions look like around here at least). Throughout the two days you'll be able to watch "international mini painting celebs" do their thing and of course I'll be present as well with my workshop table(s). As always I'm happy to chat and paint with people at the event, show off some minis and maybe help out with some hints if you have any questions. I'll have brushes, paints and test minis, but you're more than welcome to bring along figures of your own.

Looking forward to seeing you there! ;)

Hi, peeps!

Granted, I haven't painted a whole lot of sci-fi stuff lately, but I was surprised to see that I skipped a few updates I should have posted on here!

So first, here's a Highlander for Infinity:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_11/5.jpg.235e32b9ce94b74d2da55d8376ea5312.jpg)


Then somehow Kill Team became a thing and I felt the need to paint some scatter terrain for modern/sci-fi urban things:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_12/scatter1size.jpg.754a956733015a2974a9010309850242.jpg)

Mostly bits from a set sold by Warlord Games, plus the portable loos are from TTCombat. Bought those a few years ago at a show, because I knew they'd come in handy at some point. All of these bits can be seen in that Kill Team battle report I wrote a while ago.


Then I did another Eisenhorn:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_01/eisneuwip1.jpg.b72eb9e746de2330500a6ef9f6403ee3.jpg)

Not a great shot, but at this point I assume we all know what this chap looks like. :D This time I was asked to make him a little different with grey-ish blue shoulder armour. I offset the lack of colour caused by this by using more gold on the metallics.


...and this brings us up to speed pretty much. I'm currently working on a batch of Infinity figures. KTS, a Druze Shock Team, two corporate security people, a bunch of Haqqislam figures and of course the Fat Yuan Yuans:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_01/yuanwip1.jpg.d1feba43f8dedf0f670a45df6fa10bcf.jpg)

These in the photo are still a bit WIP, but I'm getting there. Unique, fun figures with a pretty charming background and incredible presentation. Gimmicky as hell, but it's something i hadn't seen done before.

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_01/yuanbox.jpg.8d06871c53cfa713de4540431cfda9ac.jpg)

They come in a faux asia noodle box, along with a little menu printed on authentically thin and crappy paper with fat stains on it and three pins. Oh, and here's a fun fact: The two bodies of the figures are the same sculpt. It's just in the arms and mounting on the bases that makes the different poses.

So yeah, I got the green light on the Haqqislam colour scheme last weekend, so I'm currently working on getting all the Haqqis done. Here's a WIP shot:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_03/wip3shoop.jpg.ab2b79070ee3110d32937d093ac8257c.jpg)

Not pictured: 77 Goff Orks (slugga boyz, Kommandoz, Tank Bustaz, bomb squigs and a Runtherd) who are standing on my desk. I'd started working on them, then I got a message asking me to rip'em off their 25mm bases and put them on 32mm ones. Yikes. Well, that's done now as well. So I'll see that I get these Infinity figures done, then it's the Ork Boyz, then back to another batch of Infinity figures (about 10 figures I think), and if I'm a good boy I'll have that all done by the time the new Kickstarter figures from Dead Earth Games arrive which then have to be painted asap so they can use those in their promo for the next KS wave for Pirates of the Dread Seas. I've seen the masters already and they look mighty fine. So that's something to look forward to.

...and right in this moment I spotted a Haqqislam lady who had hidden between the horde of Orks to skip the last five painting steps on their comrades. That's what I get for putting too much stuff on the desk. Sigh. Please excuse me. :P



edit: Oh, and of course I've got the Austrian Salute show report in the works. Still have to put together the photos of my own stall there, then it's going straight online.

Exactly the same here. If the world was run according to me figures would be send out in little plastic baggies or classic blister packs AT BEST, but I appreciate people going all-out (or in) on the gimmcikiness if they feel like they must.

Stunning Brushwork  :-*

Would you mind sharing how you did the barrels/guns on the Haq models?

I've just discovered the Vallejo Opaque paints and am loving them.

I've been playing around with using the Vallejo 72.155 Heavy Charcoal and looking at using it for rubber tyres & or weapons (Gun barrels etc).

It seems to be a warmer (?) colour and maybe I need to look at something else.

Thanks for sharing your pics  :D

@fluffy05: Thanks very much. :) It's just black (craft store), white (Schmincke acrylic) and a blue-ish light mid-grey (Vallejo Intermediate Blue) and mixes thereof. For funsies I also used Reaper's Snowdrift white for not-quite-final highlights, because it's a blue-ish grey/white I got for free earlier this year and it fits the whole pseudo-NMM on the guns. I do own two of Vallejo Game Colors' Extra Opague paints. Not many, because I generally don't do much with the Game Color range, but I got two, and they're really nice paints.

Since I got a ton to do I rushed straight on to painting Space Orks. Finished the 35 Slugga Boyz (pictures of those to follow, possibly not before I got the Kommandoz and Tank Bustaz done, let's see), now I slipped in another batch of Infinity figures, incidently Haqqislam again, but with a slightly different look. Here's a WIP of the figures:

Slowly getting there. Hope you like them so far.

@fluffy05: Any time and I will! :D Especially since I'm pretty sure we've crossed paths quite a few times now. Could it be that you posted on Druchii.net? Somehow I got a mental image of your username on there.

Could have been?  I'm sure I've hit you up with painting questions before.

Have not painted regularly for a long time and am just starting to learn how to paint all over again - lol

@OSHIROmodels: Cheers!

@Ultravanillasmurf: Thanks very much.

@Andym: :D Thanks, Sir!

@fluffy05: Oh, right. Sure, no problem. Do you have a thread on here where you post your stuff?


@Gitsplitta: :D I really appreciate that. Comparatively small events across the Atlantic, and still you take the time to look through the reports!


Here's the latest Infinity project done:


Haqqislam:

Tomorrow I'll show a friend how to play Last Days (the zombies game I recently got). Looking forward to that. Do you have any mini gaming planned for the Easter weekend?

Okay, let's not lose any time, there's too much to do. On to Space Orks! Those are still a bit WIP. Need some weathering, bases done and final check-up:

Slugga Boyz:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/boyzwuip1.jpg.214914667e4e265bc185a8180ebbee0b.jpg)

Kommandoz:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/kommwip1.jpg.42e7fc06315d54468c670df038ece772.jpg)


...and here's an earlier WIP of a mob of Tank Huntaz:
(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/thwip1.jpg.58a1edd087e3b2097c1a13392b4ff891.jpg)


As with previous units I do for this project (it's a pretty darned big Orks army I've been working on in batches since late 2017) I can't take credit for the remarkable builds. A LOT of thought goes into these to make each of the Boyz unique. None of the guys looks like another via clever conversions, use of resin parts, a bit of sculpting, and a mix of the above. Especially the Tank Huntaz again feature a ton of subtle conversions to keep a varied look about them. Then I slap on variants of the colour scheme onto every one of them and we end up with a huge force of individuals. As Orks should be, even if they're Goffs!

Well, happy weekend! What are we all up to? Had a smashing time last night playing Zelda2 (with someone who'd never played it before. Very entertaining.). Tonight I'm going to play Blackstone Fortress, which I'm sure will be fun as well. Virago took the time and painted the whole set, so it would be rude not to. ;)

In terms of painting I'm still slaving away at the Ork tank hunterz. Here's another WIP shot:

(https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2019_04/thwip2schrit.jpg.e5ae6d404cbed82fd6fbe2bb79f75ad0.jpg)

I've said it before - I'm just the painter in this case, and it's remarkable how much work the guy who built these puts into it. Each and every single Ork is different by use of subtle conversions. Also means that each of the buggers has details and details hidden away on their person, especially on these bloody backpacks. :D Takes ages. But they're cool figures. I just hope that I haven't overdone it with the reds, but I'll leave that to boss to decide.

Hope you like the boyz so far and do have a nice weekend!
