Beautiful work Sam, I love your four little piggies....and the angry, slightly appalled-looking dog looks great too! Looking forward to the next instalment!

Anyone brave enough to take on your blubbering bacony blancmanges would do well to remember: never wrestle with pigs, you both get dirty but the pig likes it (attrib. George Bernard Shaw).

The ranch continues to grow! Calling these guys done.

And here are some new additions, the box only arrived in the mail at 10am yesterday but I couldn't help myself. Foundation colors almost done. Started with a skeleton bone army painter base coat then two light coats of 1:1 army painter soft tone and GW fuegan (sp?) orange.

Who doesn't like undead pigs stuffed with explosives?

Sweet. What awesome-looking minis - pigs + explosives = instant smallgoods - I like it!!! Thanks for letting us know how you are achieving the lovely subtle skin tones. Looking good thus far. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Thanks! They are great fun to paint up. They have advanced a fair bit over the weekend. The lighting is a bit dodgy (was on the couch) but the wood grain and dynamite are mostly done, next step is the metallics and then picking out the final details.

Image

Here are the paints just for clarification. Once it is washed down you can use a mix of the washes + base color as first stage hightlight, then wet blend by adding more skeleton bone to the mix / use loaded brush. While it's not a show stopper effect (like transition skin tones with glazes) these explosive pigs are only worth 2 soul stones (usual models cost 6-12) and I've got some character models nagging for attention!

Thanks mate! I get distracted between ranges. This 2nd Ed 40k thing is a real slog. Don't know who's idea that was....

Back and forth between ranges. I've done a few more Malifaux Neverborn models for an upcoming tournament.
Lighting is a bit bad in the Scion of Black Blood (Shotgun weirdo) but it was a bit late at night.

Image
Box art says silurids should be green but I think this is a nice change. Next will be red and yellow like a Koy fish, then a blue/grey one.

Image
Inspired color scheme from Jessica Jones intro. Tried to work some pink into the flesh.
May reGlaze with flesh tone to tie it together but I'm pretty happy. The blood effect was still wet and needs a little touch up but he won't really change from here.

Painting on the back burner a bit due lately to hectic study requirements.

When WaU went down my world collapsed. It was the end of blogging as I knew it. Jks.

So I started an eerie swamp feel for my Lucius crew, feeling an eerie swamp glow similar to the super bright Infinity bases.
Image

I popped it up for discussion on the local board and was told it was fail whale so start again.
So I got elaborate with $6 of balsa dowels from Bunnings.

Image

Swamp bases for everyone. I cheered. Then realised the amount of work required...

Image

Image

Skeletons done I set to work to make my two test pieces.

Image

Introducing Lucius and his bodyguard, the executioner.

Image

Unhappy with the contrast I added some more wear to the leather. I actually painted his eyes but washed them too dark. Will have to pick them out again. Balls.

Image

The executioners base is the one with the tinfoil above. Next I've got the rest almost there.
(Older pic)

Cheers,

Dude, these are all looking sensational. Especially love the custom work on the bases.

Great work Sam, I love the bases too. They really complement your beautifully-painted minis.

Thanks gents! Chrrently in down time between studies, pushing my techniques to try new things. I've cracked out the AK interactive pigments and enamels for the bases.

I've added tufts and water effect to them all now also, using Angel Giraldez' stippling method for the leather jackets on the Guild guard (gun slingers) who I'll hopefully have finished and photographed by Friday.

Watch this space :)

A while between updates!

Study etc got in the way. Finished about a month ago and I've been tearing through my DOOM board game minatures.
Have kinda moved away from Forums for FB but making a comeback.
Also trying out Imgur as I'm sick of the adverts crashing my phone from dodgy photobucket.

Here are the four DOOM Marines; WIP for all bar the Chainsaw.
Image

And here are the completed marines:

Close ups of the finished Chainsaw dude:

Next post will have the Imps.

I've got a fortnight until I disappear overseas for nearly 2 months so I'm smashing me some hobby.

Here are the imps, even with step by step photos :D
(color choices and brief descriptions are attached to image descriptions on imgur)

Hmm. Perhaps too many images in one post. But here are the finals:

I'll probably go back and add a few edge highlights but I just wanted the minions done. Next are the possessed soldiers, should be able to knock those out before I go on hiatus for a bit.
