  1. Screaming in the rain

    This fig is super fun to paint. Thanks to Bill @ Musketeer for a great sculpt
  2. Honour Guard 05

    Well i finally pulled up the courage to do the freehand work. The symbol on the cloak im really happy with, it looks nice and doesn't over do it on the model, i redid a little of the lettering on the banner to make them a bit more legible. So taking a break to let the glue and green stuff dry on the backpack. Will finish it all off tomorrow, i will eventually make a much more scenic base for him when i finish the rest of the honour guard. Anyway any helpful comments and criticisms welcome.Here is ...
  3. the lead walk among us

  4. Honour Guard 04

     So after a busy weekend in Manchester to complete my write ups, i managed to get some painting done finally today. I spent quite alot of time working on the gold nmm and the blade of the sword. I have to still work on the freehand on his cloak and do a backpack for him, and the small detail between the blade and the hilt of the sword. But generally progress is going fairly well and im really taking my time to paint my minis now. I might touch up on a few things again once its all done when ...
  5. night of the living lead

    For a massive zombie fight game at Salute 2009

    Great sculpts from BillT@Musketeer.
  6. Honour Guard 03

    So i managed to get the bulk of the banner painted and its looking quite smooth although some of the top scrolls need touching up but i've only just started on them and im a bit too tired to carry on, hopefully it won't take me too much longer to finish the whole model. I love the small detail on the banner itself, it makes the painting somewhat easier in a way. I will be doing some sort of free hand work on his cloak and probably get some matt varnish to add to the glaze of red i want to apply ...
  7. Honour Guard 02

    Ok another quick update, but looking at the model now i need to clean up the head area a little and maybe reduce the amount of highlighting there but im pretty happy with the overall look at the moment. Anyway comments and criticisms welcome.  
  8. junk in the trunk

    Mostly just need to finish up the horses and make a chariot base, and this project is ready to shelve till the sale.

  9. Honour Guard 01

    Ok so as a kind of commission piece for my friend i started painting his honour guard for his ultrasmurfs. I love the detail on these models and they make painting loads easier than a simple marine. I spent the best part of today getting it to a stage im really happy with, unfortunately when i applied the white i put a bit too much on the cloak and im going to have to strip the white part under the arm, but i'll take my time as to not damage the paint job so far, anyway it looks cool . Comments ...
  10. better Red than dead
