Hey guys, hope you all had a good Christmas and some good times with family and friends. The new year is nearly here, lets all hope the mayan's where wrong and the world will not end in 2012 ha ha.
   Anyways i have some pics of my next project its the Beastman doombull by GW that i got from santa so thanks very much. Its a finecast miniature but i must be a very lucky boy because the mini is perfect, there are no air bubbles or rough parts which im very happy with. I also recived the new beastman Ghorgon/Cygor mini that is massive and will be a very big project to work on but that will be for another time when im ready for such a massive project.

Best wishes for the new year to you all.
more doombull soon

wolf brother.

Hey guys some pics of the space wolf for you. I call him wolf brother as he was donated by my bro, i didn't add the servo skull in the end i felt it didn't add anything to the piece in fact it was quite distracting. so here you go.

As crimbo is nearly here i will have some random stuff on here soon for you. some photos and music and stuff like that so more very soon folks.

Space wolf

Hi all

Firstly you maybe thinking from the pic, what happened to njal stormcaller mini? well i lost patience with it to be perfectly honest. The cast was not good and the armour plates that are meant to be smooth were all rough and it was not fun at all to paint, i would even go as far as to say for me it was unpaintable. I'm really not impressed by these finecast minis hope i can find some better ones in the future. It needs much much more prep work and sanding down to get it good and smooth. Its in my bits box now where it will stay until i am ready to try again.

As im still fealing the space wolves vibe and ive built a base, my brother kindly gave me one of his space wolf minis to paint from his bits box. He has tons of minis and i mean alot as he is a collecter aswell as a painter and gamer so thanks bro. i will start work on it soon but its probably going to be a fairly fast paint job more for fun than anything. i was going to put alot of effort into the njal stormcaller mini but now with all the problems i just want to do some fun painting.

Also i was thinking lately about my painting and ive not been inspierd to paint much at the moment. I seam to be just painting minis straight out the box and that does not always grab my intrest. The thing i love the most with this hobby besides painting was always converting minis and trying to make something different to the norm. I like to see people do thier own interpritation of a mini and that inspires me to do the same and push myself to be better plus its more fun for me.
I plan next year to try my hand at some sculpting, ive done very little so far and its somthing i would like to try more of. i will try to sculpt some minis from scratch as this is something i always wanted to try. Anyways i will have some pics of the space wolf up soon

keep up the good work .

Njal Stormcaller / Thoughts

Hello hello!

Ive built a impirial ruins style base for the njal stormcaller mini that im pretty happy with. Its going to be a snow base, They seam to be the norm with space wolves as they are fitting to there nordic viking
will start work on him soon and have some pics up for you.

Ive been thinking lately about this blog and how i could make it more intersting for you guys. I hope you like what you,ve seen so far? i was thinking of doing a tutorial section or maybe a mini step by step from start to finish with all the colours ive used along the way! any thoughts? These are just ideas at the moment. I would like to do more with the blog as its somthing i do enjoy doing and it would also make it more fun for me too. I will have a think and get back to you on that. Any ideas let me know.

Heres a few snaps of the mini. (with no arms or psyber raven yet )

More soon.

I have just spent nearly 2 hours to prep the njal storm caller mini. this is my first encounter with a finecast  model and i must say I'm not impressed. I tried to find the best one whilst i was in the store but its hard to tell when you cant take the mini out of the pack. There were loads of air bubbles in the casting and i must have filled about 25 holes at least plus re sculpt some of the wolf hair on the back not to mention the state of the staff. My conclusion...... These miniatures are not for the faint hearted.

Anyway grumble over, next need to build a base for it and undercoat it. so more soon folks.

Busy Bee

Ive been busy painting, not a miniature but the bathroom needed a fresh coat of paint and a few things fixing here and there, Its nice to have a few days off work and a change of pace, all done now so back to painting some minis.
I visited my local games workshop store in Reading today. They have put my dreadnought on display in their cabinets that won gold at golden demon. Some of the guys there were jumping around going crazy when they had seen what i walked in with. So thats very cool that more people will get to see it. whilst i was at the store i picked up my firstfine cast mini. Najal stormcaller the space wolf rune priest. It looks good, i guess i will see for myself soon what these finecast minis are like to work with.  Some photos will be up soon when i have worked out what to do with it.

The Nurgle lord is now up on CMON  so feel free to vote.   
more soon. keep up the good work : )

Autumns here

So autumn is well and truly here,the garden is full of leaves its getting colder and it wont stop raining. so i decided to do a autumn/winter style base for the nurgle lord with plenty of inspiration around it seams a fitting choice.

Nearly finished working on it now just a few things to finish it off. final pics up soon, heres the work so far.

Chop chop!


 Just a quick snap of the axe for you. Not had much luck taking pics of it the metal is reflective and so hard too photograph. It didnt quite turn out the way i wanted  but its not bad, plus the wife kept complaing the house was cold so she put the heating on full power and the paint was drying way too fast to work with.

Im Starting the base next ,need to make some icicles as its going to be a snow base and i want to have icicles hanging from the overhanging stones at the front.
The next pics will probably be of the finished mini so that will be up next week for yall to see.
More soon, keep up the good work.

Nurgle Lord

Hello painting friends just a quick snap of the nurgle lord for you.

Started work on this one the other night been busy with work and very tierd so not had much energy to paint so progress is a bit slow at the moment. The flesh and armor are mostly done but need more work and some tidying up some parts so need to do that then on to the axe. Im looking foward to painting the axe very much i plan to make it look as textured as possible with lots of scratches and rust so there will be many many washes and highlights working over and over even if it takes a whole session to get done plus some blood stains..ummm nice!
Well i will have some more for you soon, think its going to be a snow base with lots of cold tones to contrast to the warm flesh of the mini.
more soon. keep painting people bd

Hello all, ive picked up one of the nurgle lord minis by GW that will be my next project. I must say its very nice, loving the new plastics by games workshop. Ive built a fancy base to really show him off plus its fun to build bases for me. So heres a few pics for you to see whats to come, cant wait to get some paint down on it. Just need to fix some of the bricks on the pillar with green stuff there are some with funny bumps on that need to be smoothed off. let me know any thoughts you may have or whatever. more soon.

Dreadnought up on CMON

Ive put the pics of my Dreadnought up on cool mini or not so please vote and leave a comment my friends. thank you all. Much love.

Saturday, 8 October 2011

Very nice!

hey yal
I been out and bought some winsor & newton series 7 brushes today ive been using the standard gw ones up until now, did some painting tonight and i must say these brushes are ace. i can see why they are used by professional mini painters, there great and i recomend you pick some up if you havent all ready.

I also got hold of one of the new gw plastic kits the dark elf sorceres. The mini is fantastic and fits together perfectly with barely any prep work needed. so thumbs up GW for that. I will most deffinatly be picking up more of them soon.
Started work on the sorceres tonight. might paint her up in the standard way i like that scheme.

Also my 745.M41 duel entry is up on cmon so please vote or comment. I cant make any better pictures of it sadly like i said before im having trouble with camera software on the computer at the mo so they will have to do.
keep up the good work people.

More pics

i tried to take some better pics of the dreadnought im not having much luck. Its hard to see the blending ive done with the white armor and alot of pics ive seen online else where it just looks plain white. grrrr!

There are some older pics in the golden demon gallery. (top of page) you can see some parts better. Think i may have to invest in a photoshop program for my pc or a better camera.

So here you go.

745.M41 Golden Demon finalist Duel category

Hello all,
Here are the some pics of my entry to duel category that made the finals. I had the idea for it just a few weeks before games day so i had to work like crazy to get it finished in time. Its based on the battle of Macragge where the ultramarines first company was wiped out to the last man at their polar fortress.

I got a finalist pin for it and also one for my terminator chaplain in open category so a good day for me. check my gallery for the chaplain pics.
There are some mould lines in the photos that were removed before GD and repainted thanks to my brothers eagle eyes also on the dreadnought aswell. I will put some new pics up in time when my photo upload software is working on the computer. so low quality pics at the mo sorry.

 keep painting people.
