This is a very exciting piece to show off my progress on. I carefully filled in and sanded out a center hole in a normal stand to make a mold of what I will be using for character stands in this army. I hand laid the bricks on this and magnetized the quadrants. Why do this you ask? To attach tiny furniture.

In Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings, the characters get their own stands like the unit they are attached to, but they can be upgraded with a retinue instead of taking on the models from the unit the have been embedded with. Some people put them in a regular base as if they were part of the unit, some people make display bases. I am making tiny furniture that represents the retinue that I can add or take off as needed. The first pieces I have done are a tiny table and a weapons rack. The table is going to have a map on it.

I also decided to go a bit further and try my hand at NMM, after a very long time not practicing it. I think my blends still hold up and the lighting is pretty good, but I am still encountering the issue of colour. I am never sure what I want to add to get the tone I am looking for. I want to go for the reddish brass I have for the rest of my army, but right not it’s pretty much gold. I think I need more orange. So far, i just have most of the highlights, the shading hasn’t been touched yet.

After a couple years, I’ve finally completed another warband for Warhammer Underworlds. Just in time for the second season to be released. Averon is the same Averon I entered into the Crystal Brush competition at Adepticon 2019, and ended up making the first cut (yay!).

I continued with the NMM gold scheme with the rest of the unit. Though the rocks on the base ended up a different colour than Averon. Maybe I’ll go back and make him compliant.

I think I will play in a couple Underworlds tournaments at the local GW with the Stormsires to get some mileage, but they are in my first 1000 points of my Cities of Sigmar Freeguild Hallowheart army. Keyword shenanigans can make them part of the warscroll battalion with other wizards, love it.

My entry for a local GW painting competition. The first time I have done this much NMM in a long time and I feel I have improved since my last effort. I still need to work on having a consistent perception for how the light is supposed to hit the armour, especially when I want additional sources of light to come into play. I guess I will just have to paint more!

I look forward to doing the other two in the same style. Stay tuned.

My first Primarch model is done! Lorgar, Primarch of the Word Bearers Space Marine legion. A Horus Heresy character model from Forgeworld. Incredibly good looking model. Tons of detail all over.

Lots of blending done all over the model. I followed the scheme on the Forgeworld website. I also did some NMM on the cloak boarder. For the first time, I added bronze to the skin tone colour. In the novels, Lorgar is described to have bronze skin, metallic even, like the Emperor. I added in the metallic to the skin tone and painted it as normal. Subtle difference, but I think it turned out well.

Next, I want Horus, Mortarion, or Konrad.

My Relic Knights are now complete. Iron Chef: Definitely not Solid Snake, and Magnus Leopold, my commander, are done. Group shots coming soon. Like the other models in my army, I gave them the custom base treatment and a good amount of painting time.

I decided to follow the box art for both the models. Iron Chef with the greys and Leopold with the shining armour. This was the first time in a while since I have done a non-metallic effect. I’d say it turned out pretty well.

This is part 2 of 2 painting tutorial video of a Necron Lychguard. I use basic blending and highlighting techniques to give the model a ceramic texture. In this video, I continue off the progress of part 1. Finishing the highlight of the weapons and finishing with the details. This video is set at at least 4x speed throughout the video.

Please offer suggestions on what models you would like to see and how they are presented (commentary, video, pictures, etc.) Thanks for watching!
