  1. Circle Orboros - Shifting stones

    I did a quick and dirty job. Base coat of Greatcoat Grey. Two coats of Nuln Oil wash. One coat did not darken enough the recesses to my liking. After that, I did some dry brushing with some darker gray, white and blue. For the green glow on the runes, I used successive glazes of Iosan Green and a wash of Morrow White in the recesses. It’s not as glowing as I would have wanted but for a job under 3 hours, I’m fairly happy with the result.

  2. Warpwolf Stalker part 2

    http://www.puregeek.ca

    Well it's been a while since my last post because I've been busy working on a side project related to Warmachine that I will talk about in the future. I've also been reading some books on color theory just to educate myself a bit and help me understand how to mix color.

    Anyway, I almost finished my Stalker. The base and the final varnish are not done yet.

    I tried to take better pictures using a small booth and some better lightning. I ...
  3. Painting the Warpwolf Stalker

    Foreword

    I realized that painting is way harder than I expected (blogging in English too) and that I can't aim for perfect blending so soon in my "hobbyist" career. I fully completed maybe 2 models since I started painting almost a year ago. When I painted my first model, I stripped it down 3 times with simple green before I was happy with the way it looked. I have to let go my perfectionism and learn that perfection is only achievable by repetition. I also ...
  4. Starting a blog - Circle orboros

    http://www.puregeek.ca

    Hello there! I started a new blog to document my journey into the world of Warmachine and Hordes. This blog will also help me try to improve my English. You may find some grammatical errors and I strongly encourage you to tell me how to correct them. Thanks a lot!

    Getting into Hordes


    I finally could not resist buying one of the all in one army box. I'm already far behind painting both my Khador and Cygnar armies, but these boxes

  7. Day Four

    I'm having problems properly formatting this post at this time. Will go back and edit it later. Well today I spent some time to paint the cloak on an Idrian Skirmisher. I'll list the paints and proportions I used for this: Deep Shadow: 1:1 Black, Royal Purple Shadow: 1:2 Black, Royal Purple (This is to help mitigate the dominance of black) Basecoat: Royal Purple Low Highlight: 1:1 Purple, Ultramarine (Possibly part of my problem described later) High Highlight: 1:2 Purple, Ultramarine ...

  8. Day Three

    This post is late like the one before it. Really late. I thought about combining day three and four, but I think I have enough to write day three as its own post.

    Goals
    Again didn't get much painting in, due to work and etc. but I did contemplate my short/long term goals, and I think it would be a good exercise to do so. So without further ado:

    I would like to be a good painter. I'm going to measure my progress as follows:
    Can I achieve smooth transitions for ...
  9. Eiryss Mage Hunter of Ios

    Быстро покрас. Модель была уже с начатым покрасом, докрашивал. Есть косяки, знаю:-) так задумано.









  10. Day Two

    Alas, I didn't get much painting done between spending time with my girlfriend, and actually playing Warmachine. But as I was painting I kept thinking that I should be able to fit five shades from light to dark. As it stood I could fit two maybe three tops. I vowed to be more careful, and so I made sure I wiped off the appropriate amount of paint touched the tip of my brush to the mini and carefully dragged out the thinnest line I could produce. Unfortunately instead of the thin controlled line ...
