Even More Dwarves

Back from vacation, and it was time to knock out the last squad of spearmen and two banner bearers. I'm finally beginning to see the light of day on this project. It is much more satisfying when you can see a model based and gore/mud splatted at the end of painting, but for this project I am having to wait. I really want to move onto basing and environmental effects. The flags just look incomplete to me until they are splattered with mud and blood.

More Dwarves Again

I planned to finish 24 models today, but instead of doing 24 pikemen, I decided to reward myself by painting up 12 crossbow men instead.  It was a nice change of pace, but that means I have 12 more pikemen to do.

So many dwarves!

More Dwarves

I finished the first full squad of Dwarfs today, and am really happy with the color palette I chose. Blue, green, orange, and purple are such a harmonious set of colors, I am beginning to wonder why I don't always paint this way. So 17 models down, 83 to go. Man that seems like a long haul!

Painting Lord of the Rings Miniatures

This 100 model army is being painted for a new friend I met at the NOVA Open. He was so taken by my beaten leather beast man model, that he offered me an entire 40 model forgeworld army to paint. I couldn't resist the offer, so now I am painting 100 resin forgeworld dwarf models.  Scope creep. It is a thing. The doubling in size has me using every fast painting trick I know, since I want to ship this back to him as soon as possible so he can get some games in. I might have to try the game out once before I ship it. These models are just so lovely.

Krieg Goes To War

I realized that my Krieg lacked a commissar, so on the off chance that I end up brining this army to the NOVA Open this Thursday, I figured I needed to paint one up. So, here I present Commisar 234325.

German Bust

This is guy completes the German MG34 team that I purchased last year. I tried some new techniques on this guy, like using oils for the coat and face. I'm not sure I like the effect, but at least it is complete.

Primaris Marines So Far

Here is a little group shot of all the Primaris marines that I have painted so far. I like the way these guys are turning out. I can easily imagine a whole army of them, which is good, since I bought enough to make one!

Repulsor WIP 3 More Parts

After a stint showing a new friend around DC, I put in some time attaching the missing parts to the tank. I think it is starting to really come together now.
