Works in progress

  1. Time out for NaNoWriMo

    It is November and if my painting skills were reduced by other activities, they will draw to a halt while I write my novel.  I managed to get some more work done yesterday.  This photo is actually two days ago.  I have various browns on the minis and the base for Mr. Octupus Head is done.
  2. Black primers, Delta Creamcoats and other laments!

    So, can someome remind me of why I'm using black (GW) primer these days?  (Oh yea, it's because my white primer ran out and I was griping about how I can't tell the difference between the white coat and the bare spot of metal that I missed when I did the primer coat.)  Anyway I decided that instead of using my good camera for the WIP shots I would simply snap my cell phone at them.  I have a few of them on the active queue, a tenticle monster that I'm not going to glue completely ...
  3. More detail, will I know when to call it done?

    I have added more detail, metallic trimmings and a bone white that looks very bright given all the dark grey.  Although I like the structures the detail is a bear to paint.
  4. Progress on the structures (no bling)

    A couple of shades of grey, some red for the tiles, and metallics for the stained glass windows.  Still has a long way to go but so far so good.  It was a busy week for me, otherwise I would have more accomplished.  I really like painting these guys.Click on the image to get a larger sized view.
  5. Primed and ready to paint. (Now with 20% more Bling)

    The buildings are primed and ready to paint. So too are the wizard and the duck.
  6. Progress

    This has been an interesting month; well for everything but mini painting.  Supplies are getting low.  I’ve discovered that I’m out of the good glue!  I need to restock my supply of plastic plates that I use for palettes.  And I’m probably running low on the paints I use the most.  Hopefully I should find time to re-supply this weekend and I might have enough time to glue some minis and do a basecoat.  I’ve also got some cemetery pieces that ...
  7. These ducks are almost ready to ROCK!

    So, I have most of the basic coats on the minis; working on 10 at a time allows me to miss at least one thing every time.  These two photos show the state of two of the ten ducks, but the ducks in general are around the same state of painting.
  8. More base coats of paint

    Progress.  I've added a few more base colors for the clothes and the weapons.  Selected three of the ten for the BLING photo shot.
  9. Day 2 - feathers - beak, feet - wild yellow hair

    This is a test to see how my photos with BLING work here! The feathers are painted an offwhite - with later highlights in pure white.  Bill and feet are painted in a very old paint called "create a finish."  The wild feather hair is done in bad moon yellow.
  10. WIP Runequest Ducks

    They are primed black and placed on bases and ready for painting.  I'll probably sart off with the white feathers, go to the orange beaks and then work on the yellow moon "hair."
