  1. Let's talk about painting, or: The Crab Clan Project

    OK, so it seems I got myself a commission...A dear friend of mine, who is an avid player of Legend of the 5 Rings (the RPG, not the tabletop tactical game) wants me to paint her PC, a Crab Clan female samurai called Mayumi. So, here it starts! I've picked this miniature for the project - a 54 mm model by Pegaso Models, an Italian manufacturer of historical minis (and the occasional scantily clad female). At this stage the mini is cleaned, filled (there was a nasty gap on her back, at the joint of ...
  2. Wood Elf campaign update

    Been a while since I mentioned the campaign specifically. I am happy to say that the Woodies have improved to 7-2. Additionally I claim a moral draw for one game against Dwarfs, since it would've been a draw instead of minor loss if we were using the correct bolt thrower rules (ie. not sniping my battle standard bearer). At any rate, I'm now one game away from potentially reclaiming first place in the campaign. I briefly held it, ie. for half a day on week two before I lost both games that week. ...
  3. Monochromatic scheme study – a witch hunter

         Taking a break from my orks and inspired by a recent discussion on the forum I wanted to try something in a limited color palette. This mini was painted with exactly three pigments – chaos black, skull white and midnight blue. Originally it was completely black and white but then some joker said that it would be tournament illegal so I added blue (apparently adding the third color makes it legal). The base is probably temporary – I am waiting couple ...

  5. WIP - No muerto (actualizado 8-03-2008)

    Bueno, he vuelto a retomar la figura. Esta vez os muestro un intento de metales oxidados. La idea es hacer una armadura bastante oxidada y corroida. De momento llevo la coraza y las hombreras, y todavia tengo que rematar perfilados y alguna cosilla mas.
    Las fotos son una mierda, lo se, pero weno...La parte plateada va con una base de plata oscurecida con marrones, sombreando con marrones rojizodos y violetas he iluminando con una plata mas clara que la base. Lo oxidos van en tonos naranjas, ...
  6. Photo wip of my actual auction Eldar autarch

    A really BIG photo of my Eldar autarch, It was unfinished as you can see but his face was almost finished and I pretty happy with the result.   EBAY LINK   I didn´t paint the usual black dot in his eyes because I strongly feel it looks better this way :-D As addition I have lost aaall my statistics so I am restarting! haha SEE YA GUYS!!
  7. Almost done Alter Noble

    Like the title says, I'm almost done with this guy. Just have to do the horns, forearms and the vine on the scythe really. The horns will be bone, with all the swirly runes being teal-white like on the shield. I think it'll look groovy. The runes will take forever though.  
  8. Mmm, primer fumes.

      The nice thing about having the big scythe on the Alter is that I can BS it to represent anything I want. Hand weapon, spear, or great weapon :-) It'll likely be a great weapon most of the time, and the shield simply as added protection against spells/arrows.

  10. Eeeep... _Other_ hobbies?

    Yeah, I know. Other hobbies, yeuch. But, see, the trouble with miniature painting is that it's a very static hobby; I need to be at home, with loads of stuff at my disposal and enough time to make it worthwhile (I know there are painters who manage to work in very short sessions - while traveling by train or plane even - and using no more than the basic colours and a spare plastic cap as a palette. More power to them, I say, but I really can't be arsed to do that.)So while on the bus, or when I ...
