A handful of Deffkoptas ready to lay down some missiles. The Painboy on bike is the Orc Chirurgeon on bike from Kromlech. A very cool mini to paint. Tons of detail, complete with the goofiness that usually comes with Orks.

I think this is the last Speed Freeks vehicle, the Boomdakka Snazzwagon. I did the inside where the pop cans are. I did them as Coke and Heineken cans. The bottles are generic coloured bottles. I am loving the OSL from the flames. Lots of character in the car.

I found a couple more treasure tokens for Frostgrave. The pentagram chair token, is such an interesting token. Narrative.

The next batch is complete. 2 warbosses are a blast from the past in the old Assault on Black Reach set. One is an Evil Sunz and one is a Deathskulls scheme. I made sure there are no red big Squigs this time. There’s a few more treasure tokens for Frostgrave. I’ve done a bunch in other commissions too, but one cannot have too many treasure tokens.

All the Tankbustas are done. Got Purple shirts and blue shirts, added some checkers and red tips on the rockets. Hopefully that helps to differentiate or adds some variety to the models.

Entering my second competition of the year (first was Adepticion 2019 Crystal Brush) the Everchosen Painting Competition from Games Workshop. The first round is done by vote at all participating GW stores. So, I entered my rendition of the Idoneth Deepkin Ahkelian King from Age of Sigmar.

The scheme for the steed was inspired by the colours of Mantis Shrimp. I went for very vibrant blue, red, and green. The King got gold armour, similar to Aquaman Atlantian soldier armour. His weapons were painted bone with maroon shading, and some gloss varnish for that seashell effect.

The part that was different from my norm was having clear resin and water effects. From the start, I wanted some of the mini to be submerged in water, preferably shallow ocean water so I could have that movement of waves and possibly some interesting scenery in the resin.

The rock is, in fact, a painted rock, but the sand underneath was sculpted with filler and then painted. I added waves to the sand for that underwater realism. The bubbles were both intentional and unintentional. I wanted bubbles to form somewhere, I just didn’t expect them to form perfectly from under the rock. Finally, the waves were done with thicker, sculptable water effects. Some parts were done in layers to get the movement of the waves and splashes of the tail more realistic. It was then thinly painted (so you can still see a bit underneath) to give the effect of water splashing and breaking.

Takeaways:
– Don’t make a competition piece your first time doing clear resin
– white glue does not properly seal anything against resin
– do something with large open areas like the cape

Good luck and good job to everyone that entered!

A squad of Tankbustas and a bunch of Bomb Squids are complete. Colourful squigs where the only restriction was that none of them were to be red! These squids won’t be moving quickly. The Tankbustas have blue shirts this time. The next squad will have purple shirts.

Finished the 2 Dragstas in a blue/yellow scheme. To help differentiate, some of the clothing on the crew is different. There is a lot of weathering and dirt in normal Orky fashion.

Progress on the commission. I think this is the last of the Frostgrave scatter terrain… and Goblins, now that I think about it.
