Mystical Sword

Hey guys been working on the sword. I didn't do the o.s.l in the end as it would not look right on the mini. There are too many light tones of paint with the silver armor and pale tabbard, and too have a strong lighting effect on it might look a bit odd. The armor would have to be darker in order for the effect to look right so decided to do an energy field effect that was fun too paint. I'm not done on the sword yet though there is some neatening up and a bit of shading to add some contrast although it will be quite subtle it should make a lot of difference. Ive also added a bit of purple in there with the blue to make it a bit more interesting and mystical. happy with it so far. More soon guys  :)

Heads up!

Hey guys just a quick heads up. Apparently there is going to be a shake up of the citadel paints range if you use these i suggest you stock up on your favourite colours before they are discontinued.   There is going to be some base and layer colours don't know what there about but they are meant to be coming out in the near future. so stock up them favourites before there gone forever.

A few days off.

Hey guys just a quick post to let you know that i will be going into hospital for some dental work so wont be anymore grey knight for the rest off the week probably.
i know it sounds a bit extreme for dental work but this tooth has caused massive problems including a major jaw infection that was the most pain i have ever felt in my entire life. They have already failed to remove it once so this time im going too be put to sleep. so a sore face and some rest.

There will be more grey knight soon.
wish me luck

Knights and snow

Hello all.
               Ive done some more work on the grey knight, progress is a little slow as the many weeks i had off from painting from being ill have made me a little rusty so taking a bit more time but will soon be back in full swing no doubt. The sword will be next and i plan to do some o.s.l from the sword that will be a lot of fun. I've done a bit of o.s.l in the past and is something that i love to do.
There will only be a small amount probably just some reflection points on the edges of the Armour but i will have to see where the mood takes me at the time.
Also its snowing again and that makes my life a small hell because i work out doors all day so i will be freezing my arse off some more, but the snow is very beautiful to me also, its just not good too work in.

more soon guys keep up the good work. hope you don't get snowed in.

Nurgle knight

Hey guys heres a pic of the nurgle knight i started way back in september. Last night after working on the grey knight (more pics soon) i came across this guy whist having a tidy up of things, as he was almost done  i decided to finish him off.
I started him before gamesday for fun and probably finished him in about 10 hours so a table top standard for gaming.
I will have more grey knight very soon.

Knights and Ravens

Hey guys got some paint down on the grey knight, its still in the very early stages at the moment just the amour and helmet are pretty much done. i will have to do some more work on the armour later because i plan to do some o.s.l from the sword and there will know doubt be some parts that need altering a little.

I have also added a psyber raven keeping watch from the top of the arch to add a little character, he looks at home up there. Anyways i will post more soon :-P
