Two more for the Path

     Welcome back readers! This weeks post finds a pair of miniatures from Reaper Miniatures Pathfinder line. Before we start, I know the bases are not done so technically they are not finished, but I have problems coming to a decision on what base to put them on. For now I leave them on a plain base.
     Both of these miniatures (like so many) caught my eye and I needed to paint them up as soon as I purchased them over the summer. I worked on both of these between the Skorne battle box shared last week, because sometimes I need a break of color usage.

Brotherhood of the Seal

First up we have the monk, a member of the Brotherhood of the Seal. I wanted to work on light colors again, testing them out for another color scheme I have in mind elsewhere.

Overall, I enjoyed this color set up, but it wasnt quite what I had in mind. But for the monk it worked so I am happy with it.

Dungeon Torturer

Next is the fearsome Dungeon Torturer. A little sadistic thrown in for opposition to the light of the monk. I also wanted to try working on my NMM (Non Metallic Metal) silver on the sword. It came off a bit dull and I still need to work on it.

Overall I also enjoyed this piece, and she came out akin to BatKane, Batwoman, with the red hood.

So that is the update this week as I move along painting a new commission. We will probably get to see those in a while as I am almost finished. Next week you can tune in for another glimpse of what I do and enjoy your weekend!

Until next time...

Skorne of the Summer

Welcome back!

Continuing along as promised, this week we will take a look at some models I did over the summer, the Skorne Battlebox from Privateer Press line of Hordes. Lets get a look at the group shot before diving in:

Skorne Battle Box

I should note that this is the old metal box. It has been sitting in my back closet for a few years, and I decided it was time to paint them up for two reasons. 1) I wanted to, no NEEDED to paint up some monsterous miniatures, and 2) I needed something to paint for the current Warmachine/Hordes league we had going locally.

The colors used are close to my Cryx I play, at least the armor they wear, with added gold highlights to change it up a bit. The red and gold for the cloth was a nice touch that I wanted to try, and I think it worked. So lets take a closer look at each of these models (its going to be a long post).

Master Tormentor Morghoul

If you notice the lines there on the side of the base, its used to mark facing for in the game. A simple red stroke to tell the front and back of the model for in game purposes. The bases are all custom made, and hopefully I have a tutorial on how to do that later.

Cyclops Savage (2)

As much as a pain in the ass those back flags are, I wanted to include them. Each one is pinned into the backs of the Savage to hold them in place, and for extra support. No freehand on the flags yet, because I am not sure where I am going with them, but the space is there.

Titan Gladiator

The big bad powerhouse. Honestly he was the first thing I painted. There was some work to be done before he was painted, the only problem with the metal line. Gaps had to be filled with greenstuff and a little sculpting done to blend it all in, but he turned out great.

Over the course of two weeks it took me to paint up the whole thing, you know work and stuff got in the way, but really fun to do. And thats the key, fun and enjoyment. I do have to say I like the old metal line of Privateer Press stuff, even if there is a little work involved. The new stuff looks good, as long as it comes out the factory good, but I do prefer metal over plastic.

So there we have it. Painted up Skorne Battlebox from Privateer Press line Hordes. Back to painting more stuff for me, see you next week!

Whats new pussy cat?

Welcome back followers!

     This week I have a treat of a model I had for some time meow, an oldie from SodaPop Miniatures.
I fist picked this up a few years ago, when the game was just a rumor and they had these resin models for sale, something drew me to him and the Iron Chef was picked up. As with most of my miniatures it took a few years to make its way to the desk and painted.

     Im not 100% fond of resin models, so they take extra long to make it to the table. Over the summer, before Relic Knights Kickstarter made its way to my door I painted him up with eager delicacy. Lets take a look::

Iron Chef

 Look at those tasty ingredients in his apron.

 The stripes on this feisty feline were hand painted freestyle.

Quite fun to assemble and paint up. I did get my Relic Knights Kickstarter shipment in, but they are waiting in the background. Plenty of projects sitting in wait ahead of them. Plus, since we are going over all this stuff I have to share before I get to them.

I hope you enjoyed this installment, until next time.

Summer is over

Welcome back! My summer was busy, so apologies for the delay of any posts here. ALOT of things have happened and painting was done, and more things happened, but enough of that. I return with a  solo piece I had to paint once I saw it.

 Chandra Spec-Ops. A solo model for the Aleph army from Infinity; a game by Corvus Belli. Base is by Secret Weapon Miniatures.

Chandra: Spec-Ops

 Since I dont really play this faction (I went Nomads, more later), I went for a color scheme I wanted to try for a long time, but needed the right figure to do it.

My first step back into freehand, the faction logo turned out pretty good if I say so myself (and I do).

This view was just for a show of the base. Again, by Secret Weapon Miniatures (who make an awesome assortment of items for our hobby). She stands so cocky there....

Well thats todays upload. More are on the way, we kind of went "crazy" this summer at our LGS. So I grabbed up some Nomads for Infinity, and Pirates for Freebooters Fate, more Cryx and some Cygnar for Warmachine, and a slew of random minitures from random companies. We will see how good I am at posting these, but more are on the way!

Until next time readers.....

Hasslefree Zombicide

Well back again. Hope everyone had a fun, safe, Independence Day celebration (4th of July here in the states).

This time, I am going to bring you 2 figures from Hasslefree miniatures that I am using for some Zombicide figures, notably the survivor version. They are the perfect size for playing as a survivor, not to mention great sculpts.

Dynamic Ray

Zombie Hunter Kev

Now I will admit, I got Dynamic Ray to use as Shaun (from Shaun of the Dead) before Zombicide 2 Kickstarter happened, but I am still using him as an alternative model. Zombie Hunter Kev is for my personal character I made stats for, his name is Tyrone and he is good business.

I hope you enjoyed this installment, now I have to take more pictures and get ready for more posts. Until next time, take care of your brushes.
