The first of my custom Stonework bases molded and casted. I added a black wash so the details can be seen. They are looking good. Next set is being molded now. My Stormcast are going to look so good.

Finally finished my first full unit for this army. 6 stands of Men-at-arms marching along a brick road, trampling a small flower bed. No mercy when one is parade ready.

The command stand consists of the leader, banner, and a couple of soldiers with an alternate shield design.

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.

More resin models. This time, they are from Forgeworld. The Ork Big Trakks. More Evil Sunz Scheme because red is fastest, and it just looks so good.

When building FW, you can’t help but compare them to other companies that release similar resin kits. Due to the poor instructions, this kit definitely falls short from alternative Ork kits. Not to say it doesn’t look good, the FW Big Trakk looks awesome.

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!

Skin has been updated with brighter base so it isn’t so dark a contrast with the highlight.

The terrain has been shown love. I went with what I did for the last set of terrain pieces. These are also 3D printed, which look amazing. Since I could see the stepping in the pieces, I decided I needed to smooth out the vines that were on the stone pieces. I have some liquid resin that I applied, when it dried, it make the vines nice and rounded. Much more natural than the stepping texture.

As for the animal corpses, there might be some more browns needed in the fur to help separate it from the base.
