Arctica

This blog is for world domination and my plans on how to amass armies and techniques in order to fulfill this goal. So mortals tremble at my feet and enjoy the progression of my work.

  1. Mournful Knight

    It has been a while since i've worked with metallics and i need to definately work more with my contrast with it in general. After using NMM for so long my metallics look a little flat and maybe i need to introduce more use of inks and washes to the metallic surfaces. One other hindrance i've had is that since you know im lazy at taking photos and in general mine aren't the greatest but taking pics of metallics is even more difficult i have found.

    I wanted to keep the model quite ...
  2. Bonesinger

    Well i wanted a complete change from all the painting i've been doing so i decided to paint a model i wanted to do for a long time. I might even enter it in for Salute 09 but i am extremely happy with the results thus far. Comments and criticisms are very welcome.  
  3. The Chaos Divide 17

    Well as another update looks like i really am losing my concentration and patience for painting these, so i decided just to get these out the way. Although, saying that i do still have three more to go lol. But anyway for table top quality i think they are alright. Here is the piccy. 
  4. The Chaos Divide 16

    Here is another update, i decided rather then working on some obliterators i wanted to paint my chaos lord instead. Im happy with how he turned out and it gave me a chance to improve my grey nmm and my freehand work. Anyway here it is, comments and criticisms are very welcome.  
  5. The Chaos Divide 15

    Well as another update i've finished my terminators after being stricken by the flu, trying to find concentration and strength again is difficult. Overall im very happy with the whole squad and individually they are all of a fair tabletop standard. The blue's are all glazed and im happy with it all. Anyway comments and criticisms are welcome:

    The photos still have that yellow tinge from my lamps but one day i'll finish something during the day and i'll retake some pics using natural ...
  6. The Chaos Divide 14

    Heres a fairly big update from me, i have been working on my 2nd squad of thousand sons marines. In general i am happy with them, they are painted to a table top quality, but i did find myself losing focus after a while. I think for two reasons, first was that i have been working on tsons marines for the last two months now and the quality of the models were not as good as the first squad since they were a recycled chaos marine unit from my old original army. Anyway enough of my rambling here is ...
  7. The Chaos Divide 13

    I have currently finished 3 more tsons marines from my 2nd squad but i have also just done the leader of the squad too. I wanted something different for this squad so it wasn't identical to the other one, i darkened the armour colour of the blue and i used a different sorcerer model. The marines i used were my old recycled nightlords with the proper heads. Im really happy with this new sorcerer but comments and criticisms are very welcome.  
  8. The Chaos Divide 12

    Well another update, since i wanted to work more on my beserkers so that i could mix up what im working on. I started work on the leader of the squad and since i wanted each squad leader to be easily identifiable i used an old chaos lieutenant model which i had, changed the head and the gun. Im happy with both the NMM and the reds, i wanted to keep the cloak nice and dark so not to upset the balance of colours on the model but it was kind of boring so i painted a bit of freehand on the back to improve ...
  9. The Chaos Divide 11

    Ok for a long overdue update on my wip i managed to finish painting a squad of tsons marines and another terminator (which i haven't shown). I think individually im happy with the quality of the painting in general but as a unit they do look nice together, especially since they will be used for tabletop gaming. I've spent the last couple days putting together some khorne beserkers so that i can mix up the colour palette im painting since it can get a bit boring when you're army building. I know ...
  10. The Chaos Divide 10

    Well after about 4 days of painting (after work of course ) i managed to finish painting this terminator as a test model. Im happy with the results but i still think the metal models are really static and im not keen on painting metal models. But anyway the blending of it all is nice and i was trying some different techniques too. I generally work from dark to light when painting but this time on the blue and greys i worked from medium colour and shaded and highlighted. It was quite fun and i ...
