I think I am definitely bitten by the painting bug at the moment… I haven’t even considered playing anything on the PC… Diablo has been left lonely and the various other MMOs that I’ve been playing are sat forlorn, and disappointed at their lack of game time. I, however, have been painting like a demon … More Gladiatorc (minus plinth)
The gentlemanly chaps over at the Frothers’ forums run a charity event pretty much every year, where a special model is sculpted and cast up in limited numbers and given to people who donate to the selected charities via a ‘just giving’ page. This is a great event; supporters get a great model and they … More Frothers’ Charity Miniature 2012
Pork chops anyone? So, I have been painting furiously since we moved into the new modelling room, and have managed to get the Union Worker to a state where i can say he is 95% complete. He still needs a base and possibly some freehand, but, as I want to have him as part of … More Piggie! AKA the Wrath of Kings ‘Union Worker’
Wrath of Kings Union Worker… painted as a pig-faced orc! I have some grand schemes for these Wrath of Kings models… I am actually intending to paint a group (warband?) of them as a bit of a challenge to myself – I haven’t painted a unit/squad of anything for a very long time…. but these … More Wrath of Kings Union Worker
The companion piece to “Mr Good Axe” is a rather sinister barbarian aptly named “Mr Bad Axe”. I really wanted to play with saturation and contrast on this piece, and work in some of the new techniques I have been learning over the recent months. The armour is painted in metallic paints with a high … More Mr Bad Axe by JoeK Minis completed!
I was recently commissioned by JoeK Minis to paint up their two new barbarians (sculpted by Matt Gubser) and I finally handed them over to Joe on Saturday. It is always a warm and fuzzy feeling being able to hand over pieces like this personally – and it is probably fair to say that he … More Mr Good Axe by JoeK miniatures complete!
I’ve also been working on something else a bit more in my comfort zone (who’s yawning at the back?!). This is one of two barbarians I am painting for JoeK Minis. The photos aren’t great – I need to work on the white balance on my camera again for the blue-white background (I think I … More What else I have been working on – Barbarian
He’s finished! And in double-quick time for me…! As he is for Heresy Miniatures themselves, I have kept him on the sculpted base which comes with the figure. I am pretty pleased with the way he has come out, especially the light/dark contrast in the metallics (which haven’t photographed quite as contrasty) and the flesh … More Big Boris III is done!
Just a quick update on how Boris is coming on. I have pretty much completed the skin apart from sole light glazes to being in some different colours to specific areas – a touch of red to his nose, maybe some purple to his knuckles. I also need to give him some eyebrows, but I … More Boris, almost there…
Back in the early noughties when I was discovering a world outside of Games Workshop (yes, it does exist!), and Rackham had just blown my mind with its quirky designs and lashings of continental flair, I stumbled across Heresy Miniatures. The sculpts may not have been as sophisticated as those from our French cousins, but … More Big Boris
