  1. Tzeentch choo-choo-chooses you!

    A quick shot of the WIP Chosen unit, I think the color scheme will definitely pan out nicely. I'll start working on the rest of the unit plus the Knights, and hopefully I'll have the big fat batch of models all finished in assembly-line fashion within a week. Gotta start ramping up the speed extremely quickly here or I won't finish on time.These last 2 pics aren't 100% up to date, but they show the color scheme pretty well. The leather boots will be the dark brown/purple color, and the metal on ...
  2. Fun with pigments!

    Back after the holiday season. I had to order 3 of my paint colors and they didn't arrive until after holiday was over so unfortunately I didn't get started as soon as I wished.I am using Golden fluid acrylics. They're not the sort that comes in the tubes. I thought about trying a 'proper' tubed paint but I know they're crazy viscose and I thought they wouldn't do too well with the amount of thinning I'd have to do. The fluid acrylics are much closer in liquidity and I've only got to add a bit of ...
  3. There will be blood. . .

    The funnest part of zombies is almost always the goreification. I was pretty happy with the way the camo and body armour came out on these, so there was a brief moment of sadness as it got all goopy, but it was short lived.

  4. New York Demon In The City 2009

    This year New York City wide miniature painting competition will take place on January 31th.

  5. Those about to rock. . .

    I've had this chunk of laminated foam sitting around in a box since Ben and I built our hills years ago. I finally carved it up last weekend while I was fixing the hillside, and today got it painted. A good scenic bit of difficult ground.
  6. the new flesh

    Finally got my order in from Litko- 200 bases for about 22$. Not bad. I don't think I'd put nice character pieces on them, since the rounds aren't round, but show the segemented cuts, but for massed troops, square and round are find, and a good price. I'd been waiting for the delivery to base up these zombies, which are bound for a demo game @ Salute. Any color suggestions for the bugged out zombie eyes?

  7. Chaos death puppies

    Nothing fancy, but they're done I think. I might go back and blend the skin a bit if I have time at the end of the project, but the priority is getting the next 54 models finished :-)
  8. The Chaos horde swells

    Lots of pics, more construction than painting though. More recent shots are at the bottom, but I'll say right now that I have built a bunch of movement trays, primed most of the regiments, and painted the Warhounds since I've last taken photos. I'm mainly showing off the conversions so far :-)The Sorceror Lord, complete with all his magnetized optional equipment.The Knights, after being liberated from many of the unnecessary spikes and horns covering the models.The Chosen were definitely a ton of ...
  9. at least somebody looked at my pics

    Hmmm. Maybe I should have been a little more explicit in my photo captions. But, I actually have had a couple of comments on them. Yes, I know the pics are crappy. They were most likely taken after a long night at Trafalgar's Club in Athens (throwing darts and drinking free kamikazes). And, yes, I am fully aware that "Spot the dragon" is shown unpainted. I apologise for his nekkidness on a minis-painting forum. He was in the batch, and got loaded up with the rest of them. If you could ...

  10. Forge world Avatar - poor Yorick pattern :)

         Over Christmas I finally found some time to ties everything together assemble and paint what needs to be painted. The only thing left is the loincloth and, I think, I have pretty good idea what I want to do with it. I tried several things on this model that I’ve never attempted before, including some sculpting that is more complicated then filling joints - Look at his helmet, for examples, and the dead CSM – too bad GW now came out with space marine casualties ...
