Finally starting to get started on these guys. Of course, I have a soft spot for the lowly humans in almost every game system. Bonus points if they are religious zealots and have access to fire or cool armour. I am not sure about the fire yet, but there are warrior priests and dudes in cool armour. Not these soldiers though.

These are the first stands of my Men-at-Arms. I had made the bases using clay or plasticard blocks, then I casted them in resin. I kept the masters, so the bases you see these buys on are the copies. It’s also a theme. I tried to make it look like a brick promenade they are marching/charging down. I wanted some variety, so I added some dirt patched and damage. The abrupt stop on the one side is actually going to be a water feature that my cavalry will be galloping through.

The scheme is inspired from the Knights of the Blazing Sun in Warhammer Fantasy, or bees.

Super excited to get my first game in.

Finally, the little humies get part of a battletome, and a cool one too! Now that I have access to a laser cutter, I thought it was high time to rebase my old Empire army. I designed a cobblestone texture and had it engraved onto MDF, then cut into different sizes.

Slowly but surely, there will be many more rebased. Maybe I’ll even get new minis for this army. I have been eyeing Demigryphs since they first came out.

Since I am a puritan, all my units will be human. I don’t want elves or dwarfs. My old engineers will be the new Cogsmiths. Maybe my Warpriests will be my Runelords if I want a Greywater Fastness army.

Everchosen Competition – Ahkelian King July 28, 2019

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!

More progress!

A handful of scatter terrain for Frostgrave. This comes in the form of pieces of a market. Various baskets and bags of food, boxes, bricks, and bottles. I am particularly fond of the apples and squash. Adding different colours makes them interesting to look at.

Night Goblin archers were done. I transferred them onto circle bases to for Age of Sigmar compatibility.

Lastly, the Warboss in Mega-armour. This mini is the Iron Boss from Artel W Collectible Miniatures. A fantastic looking piece with plenty of detail.

I made a thin deck box design. These are two deck boxes with different engravings for the deck I have in each. They hold about 40 sleeved cards, with some room on the sides for a couple tokens. Takes about 30-45 minutes to cut the MDF and engrave the logo and text. I added a couple pairs of magnets to help seal the lid.

My first warband in Warhammer Underworlds. Orruk aesthetics have always drawn me. But have never gotten an army. One day, I will get into AoS and start an Iron Jawz army.

I painted these over the course of 8 hours, speed painting late into the night, to have them ready for a tournament. I didn’t have to even paint them, but as a complete dunce at gaming, I should at least have e a painted army lol. Ended up not last, better than what I thought I was going to do XD

My own creation for Games Workshop’s Blood Bowl game. The Human team, Middenheim Maulers. I have an Empire Middenland army, so naturally I’ll have a Middenland team. I didn’t like the scheme GW put out for Middenland, so I changed it to fit it to my liking. My buddy that got the starter, gave me a few players to fill out my team and I added the Ogre. Not sure if I will get the star players that are coming out, but they do look fun to paint.

I think I will add decals sometime in the future, but the future is not today lol.
