More WIP: Long Fangs

Progressed some more on the Long Fangs tonight.  I hit the details on all of them.  I also decided to paint the right kneepad red to match the left shoulder.  This was to add a bit more color to them.  I also mounted them all on the Dragonforge Ice World bases that I had won a while back.

Malifaux: Lady Justice

I finally got around to trying out my new Windsor & Newton Series 7 brush yesterday and tonight.  There were a few stray hairs that needed to be trimmed, and the brush did take a bit of work to get accustomed to, but once I got it figured out, it works great.  One thing I noticed is that it does tend to split into a swallow tail shape on occasion if I’m not careful, but as long as I keep it wet and am careful, it holds a super fine point.

The model I took it to was the Lady Justice that had been sitting unpainted for quite a while.  The hair on here is crazy to deal with.  There’s just so much of it, and lots of fine details to deal with.  I decided not to just drybrush the hair, and actually highlighted individual pieces building it up from red to a light orange.  I think she turned out quite well.  Now for some WIP pics and the final pics.  Sadly my light and camera washed out some of the finer details, but most of it is visible.

Painting Stuff

Ahh, spring.  Things have been a bit crazy lately, so I haven’t been painting quite as much.  Instead, I have been taking advantage of the decent weather we’re finally getting, playing some World of Warcraft in the evenings, and reading.  I have been working on a few things, though, and just haven’t posted them.  So here we go…

First up is a Witchling Stalker from Malifaux.  I had finished him a while ago, but I only recently finished up the bases for them and he is the first to get the full base treatment.  The fence in the background is from a Warhammer Chaos Rhino.

Next up is my second Wolf Lord on his Thunderwolf.  I still need to finish his base, but I am waiting until I have a few more Space Wolves painted so I can get them all based at once.

Last up is the Warmachine Menoth Warjack that I am working on.  Right now I am just blocking out the base colors and trying things out.  It’s a neat project, just because of the large areas to paint.  Not a ton of tiny details, so I have a chance to try some different things.  That said, I’m not 100% sold on the color combination, so we’ll see if it sticks around, or if things change drastically.

That’s pretty much what I’ve been working on lately.   I have also been working on assembling some Mithicast Thunderwolves, and I plan on writing a review of them once I finish them all, but my initial impressions are mixed.  The wolves themselves are quite detailed, but that detail seems to have played havoc with the molds and there are tons of flaws on the wolves that are a royal pain to fix.  Anyways, more detail will be covered later.

Thanks for visiting, and happy gaming.

Space Wolf Rhino

I decided to try and get a Rhino for my Space Wolf army painted up this week.  I finally got my new airbrush working correctly and basecoated the four Rhinos I own.  Then on Saturday and Sunday I spent some time adding the details and then weathering it.  In the end I think it turned out quite well.  I can’t wait to get them all painted up and onto the table.

Space Wolves WIP

I’ve been working on finishing up my Space Wolves army before the tournament this Saturday.  Everything is basecoated with Astronomicon Grey and I’ve been adding the black to the shoulder pads and weapons.  Next up is to add silver to the details and then wash them all with black.  I’d like to get at least that much done before Saturday, but I don’t really have much optimism for that.

Njal Stormcaller

Njal Stormcaller.  Once I’m done painting him, I’ll attach the wolf pelt cape from the Terminator set and paint that up to make him look even more epic.  The beard was done with greenstuff, and the I attached a split wolf tail to the bottom.  His left arm will have a Raven sitting on it, once I find a suitable model.

Arjac Rockfist

Arjac from the side

Arjac’s hammer was made from a standard Space Wolf Thunderhammer.  I cut it down so it’s bit shorter and I removed the cables that attached it to the armor.  He will also be getting a cape, this time from the Chaos Terminator Lord box.

Nothing much for conversions on the last ones, but here at the pictures.

Lone Wolves

Space Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf

All but the shoulder details and the base is finished on the first Lord.  I need to look into Norse runes, as that is what I plan to put on the shoulders and armor of the entire army, but I’d like there to be some meaning and not just random characters.

I really like the way the wolf turned out.  The rider looks good, but I feel like something is missing or he just needs a bit more detail.  Adding the runes might be all that is needed.  Other than that, I’m very happy with the way he looks.

So here he is:

Here are the beginnings of a Long Fang Squad Leader.

WIP: Space Wolves Logan Grimnar

I’ve been toying with the idea of a Space Wolves army for a while now.  Then as a Christmas gift, a friend of mine gave me the Marines from an Assault on Black Reach set.  With a 2200 point tournament coming up at the end of February, I figured this would be a good time to give it a whirl.  I am doing the army in a light grey color instead of the traditional greyish-blue color.  Beyond that, though, I plan on sticking with standard markings while still giving each member of the army a uniqueness fitting to the space wolves.

Of course, the first model to get the paint had to be the Great Wolf Logan Grimnar himself.

I need to attach the cloak, finish the base, and add some detailing to the shoulder armor.

Malifaux: Another Witchling

Here’s the second of the three Witchling Stalkers.
