Storm of Khorne pt1

Welcome back!

This week we will take a gander into a personal project I did on a whim. Our LGS (Local Game Store) picked up on Games Workshop release of Age of Sigmar last year, and received quite the following. My main army I decided on Stormcast Eternals (still working on some of those models). But last year GW released small collections, one being the Storm of Sigmar. It contained a small force of Stormcast Eternals and Khorne Bloodbound models for the game.

For some reason I took to painting the Khorne models, I guess as a break from the regular way I painted my Stormcast's. So this week we will look at the Khorne Bloodbound contained within the box. First up, Bloodreavers!

Khorne Bloodbound Bloodreavers

     For some reason these 5 models painted up quickly, and I really enjoyed them. So much that I immediately went and did the next 3 models in the box, the Blood Warriors (more on those next). The bases were done using the Martian Ironhide technical paint from Games Workshop, with a nice layer of paint over top to highlight some of the chipping earth.

Hope you enjoyed this look into a personal project. Until next time!

SQUEE like a Farrow pt4

Hey, double post in a week! Welcome back.

Today we are going to look at the last 3 models from that Farrow commission for the Minions army for the Hordes tabletop game from Privateer Press. Although this one only contains 1 Farrow, there are 2 other Minion characters that were done as part of the grouping.

Lets take a look:

Farrow Warlord

These next 2 characters are part of duo, and considered Minion faction. As with the pigs, they were to be done quick and cheap so not a whole lot of details were done.

Lynus Wesselbaum

Edrea Lloryrr

I wanted to do more to these last two, so I picked them up for myself for a future project (not that I may ever get to them). But simple and quick is what the client requested, and thats what they get.

Well, that wraps up the Farrow/Minion commission run. Not really sure what I will post next week, possibly a personal project or some awesome Guildball miniatures I got to paint. Guess we will wait and see.

Until next time!

SQUEE like a Farrow pt3

Welcome back!

This post we continue our look into a past commission for a local player for his Farrow minion army for Hordes by Privateer Press. This week we are going to look at one of the newer units to be released, the Farrow Commandos!

Farrow Commandos

Although it was a 10-man pig unit box, only showing the basic non-duplicate sculpts here. The nice thing about these plastic unit boxes in plastic is that you can, with a little work, change the positions of the arms making a few adjustments so they don't all look the same.

Again, quick and easy paint jobs to get them on the table faster, and it works for these farrow.

Until next time!

SQUEE like a Farrow pt2

Welcome back!

Today we are continuing our look at a past commission, continuing from last post, at some Farrow models for the Minions faction for Hordes by Privateer Press. This week we will look at Thier big bad battle Engine, the Meat Thresher!

Measuring in at a 120mm base (as big as a DVD), this thing was massive

Meat Thresher

And there she is. The model is a mix of metal and resin parts, but painted up quite nicely after a prime coat. As with the other Farrow, the client wants quick and cheap paint job and colors to match the rest of the army. He was quite pleased with the addition of the crushing Legion member up front.

Until next time!

SQUEE like a Farrow pt1

Welcome back!

This post we are going to look back at a commission for another local player who loves his bacon, and Farrow army, for Hordes tabletop game by Privateer Press. Although Farrow are just one part of the Minions army, this client deals mostly with the piggy side and a few of the other solo minions.

Today, we will take a look at two of the lesser warbeasts, Battle Boar and Splatter Boar. Lets look!

Battle Boar

Splatter Boar

With the client on this army I have my free reign on colors and keep the army as uniform with skin and fur colors. As Minions are mostly ragtag guerrilla style of an army, the armors shown as if they loot the battlefield after bigger armies do battle so they have no real colors of armor themselves.

The other stipulation with the client is he prefers to have a painted force on the table, but not break his bank, so most of the army is a base color and mid-tone to that color. This is also why the details are not picked out and a lot of the same colors are repeated. On the plus side this allows me to get them done in quicker fashion and saves time.

Until next time!

Super Dungeon Candy and Friends

Welcome Back!

Todays post we will view the final 5 commission pieces for a local client for the game Super Dungeon Explore by Soda Pop Miniatures. If you play this game (or any by Soda Pop Miniatures), you should know that Candy and Cola are their main mascots. So I saved them for last, well not Cola, but there is plenty of Candy and two other key female characters.

Lets get started!

Brave Mode Candy

Kunoichi Candy

Shadow Mode Candy

Princess Emerald


There we go! As with the other posts, the client wanted the bases painted black. And with all the other chibi style I had a ton of fun painting these up, breaking away from the normal.

Currently I am working on a few other projects, and getting the ones from last year ready for post, so expect more to come!

Until next time!
