Slaanesh Champion - snake tail, two swords and extra arms

Happy to show my favorite miniature from the Realm of chaos range. I have been waiting for over 20 years, back when all swords were magical and a mutation really meant something. Finally felt my painting would be able to do this justice, happy to say I'm genuinely pleased with the results.

It took around 16hrs, which was longer than I anticipated, but the pink sword really pushed me. 

Commited now to eventually painting all the Slaanesh champions from this era. 



Warhammer Quest - Halfling

I give you Danny DeVito's halfling cousin. Nuff said.




Warhammer Quest - Wardancer

Although I'm not 100% happy with the heated metal effect on the swords didn't want to slow down on a prolific painting episode so called this guy finished. When I used this effect on the necromunda pyromancer I used water to thin the washes rather than using lamian medium, in this instances it created harsher transitions. They will probably get repainted one day, but he was painted in 5hrs so can't complain. 

Lovely old quest model and just pleased to get some paint on him after 25 years in a box. Wasn't sure about the blue and green palette to start with, but pretty happy with that. 


Warhammer Quest - Ex-bloodbowl Ogre with bottle of troll squirt

Whilst searching around eBay I spotted this old ogre, sculpted by Michael Perry. It was cheap as it was missing the club, presumably removed in a moment of folly. I see this mini as a customer of a local tavern and decided he could be rescued and given a new purpose as an NPC or character in Warhammer Quest. Meet this surly ex-bloodbowl player, Drinking his favourite brew, Troll Squirt.



Warhammer Quest - Troll Slayer


It pains me to admit the original Quest troll slayer is a little too cluttered for my taste, although the artwork is great, sadly no inspiration to paint the mini. Digging around solegends.com for replacement slayers and decided this guy was ideal. Half the fun for quest seems to be finding hidden gems in the old citadel ranges. 




Warriors of Chaos Nurgle Standard Bearer

After photobucket turned most of our beloved blogs into mush realisation that I may have lost a lot myself I went on a hunt for lost photos. Here was the favourite mini I painted back in 2014. Thought it was lost to the ether, pleased I found it. 






Half-Orc D&D character - Reaper bones Goldar



Half-Orc painted for a friends D&D campaign. The model he gave me is Goldar from the reaper bones range, for those unfamiliar it's a white PVC plastic miniature. The clean up process was a little fiddly, but I'm surprised at how reasonably detailed the model is. It goes to show even with cheap materials the bones range has produced some great results in terms of miniatures, especially considering how well priced it is compared to resin and white metal. 

Overall pretty happy with the results. 





For anyone interested this is the PVC model as delivered, very different from any material I've worked with in the past. I will say the face lost some detail in the moulding process, but even in white metal the head of Goldar was not the best scale or sculpt anyway, as you can see. 




Nope nope nope - Arachnophobia in Warhammer Quest?



Heresy miniatures have down a fantastic job with this sculpt, it's not an easy model to put together, this being a metal cast with incredibly thin legs there was little room for pinning so I had build a scaffold for it to rest on whilst gluing on the legs. I had a look and noticed they have replaced it with a resin version which should be considerably easier to work with. Anyway, loved painting it and should be fun introducing it to quests in the future. 

Check out some Copplestone spiders ready for the project too. 








Warhammer Quest - The Great Unclean One

Confession time: We all from time to time have to take a step back, look at our collection and say "I'm a collector or painter above being a gamer" this is the case for me right now as we have a wonderful 5 month old who selfishly refuses to sleep all day on a Sunday so I can head to the local gaming club and hash out an adventure every week. So I recently came to accept the hobby is probably more important to me than an actual game at the moment, as I paint an enormous dungeon to enjoy in years to come.

That brings me to my next finished project. This was not at the 'level 1' end of the quest monsters, this was not a practical decision whatsoever. Never the less, I hope to eventually, one day, need a fully painted great unclean one. So here he is in his resplendent rotting form..










Warhammer Quest Tile - Corner Quagmire

Another Warhammer Quest tile, this time with a water effect applied so some highlighting, but that nice glare is from the Vallejo Stillwater, I think it gives a nice organic effect.

This will be great to use in conjunction with the sewer tiles from the white dwarf articles.
