So I finally finished my skull cannon and now I have been sort of pawing through my stuff trying to figure out what I would do next. I also knocked out 21 cobblestone bases for my CSMs as well, but I don’t have pictures of those currently. So I figured I have these fantasy miniatures that are cool, I’ll paint some of those. The new Age of Sigmar game is catching my interest more as it matches my fluffy play style and is very simple and destructively brutal. This is in no way suggesting that I am going to be a convert, like I said previously, it’s just a reason to buy all the super cool minis I have wanted from the fantasy line…think Nagash and war hydra.
So, these are the final shots of the Skull Cannon.
These pictures are of the Elyrian Reaver that I finished. Took the opportunity to work on my shading of white.
Thanks for reading,
So, my last post for the skull cannon before it is done! The base is done as are most of the details. Just a quick post with some half-hearted pics, but it may be all the progress I make this weekend so I figured I’d get a post up just in case!
Thanks for reading!
So I have made progress on the skull cannon. Cleaned up the masked areas and did most of the highlights (minus the extreme highlights I will do at the end with mithril silver) and did the majority of the work on the riders. My intent is for the front two bloodletters to look lava-ish. However, I think I need to cover more of them with black and brown and have the reds and yellows be less apparent. Not sold on them currently. I also have designed and built a lava base as well as doing the first portion of the lava. Now I have to paint the rocks and skulls.
Well, thanks for reading,
So making some painting progress. I have been whittling away slowly at models I need to paint for the past month or so but very slowly. Recently I have started making more progress faster, especially making gains with my air brush. So, onto the stuff.
I recently finished my renegade command squad. Or at least a possible command squad. The flamed and melts cannot both be used but they can be swapped out. The rest of the renegades will be green and purple with the disciples being red. Sets them apart I feel. However, veterans will be black or something separate. The lack of unity in color scheme makes them feel more patchwork and more like a renegade army.
So here are the first five finished disciples (still figuring out how to base them):
Here is the Arch-Demagogue. I like the dual close combat weapon look with a power weapon and a regular close combat weapon.
Here is the first test terminator I did for my terminator squad:
Note the skull pad. I quite like this method of painting bone.
Here is the new scheme for my warp talons. Right now I field eight of them (7 previously painted green, one red). Daemon kin formations finally give me a good excuse to use these guys. That said, they have proven pretty good in the two games I have run them with daemon kin.
Here is my GW thirster. I painted a lot of him before I became discouraged and now I need to go back and polish off the last detail work on him. Oh, and his base. But I am trying to think of what his base is. He is either a daemon prince of Khorne or a lesser thirster (my big ones are the 275-300 point varieties).
Currently, before the thirster I am working on my Skull Cannon of Khorne. This is the first time I have done a fair amount of blending with my airbrush. The yellow bloodletters will be darkened through successive layers to look like they have sort of a lava finish. The back two will be more of a classic red bloodletter scheme.
Once this is done, which hopefully will be this weekend I will finish the details on the thirster and eagerly dive into my Stormfiends who are my renegade brutes (Picture Ogryns but chaosy). They fit the bill of a brute and they are the size one expects of a very bulky three wound model.
Well, thanks for reading. Glad to finally start painting again. While I am painting less, I feel the quality has improved gradually from where I was a year ago.
Until next week, thanks for reading,
