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.

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

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.

The first minis have been painted for this commission.

Naturally painted red to go fasta, these Speed Freeks vehicles are a colourful start to the army.

The two shaman are Orruk Shaman from Age of Sigmar, but I believe they are going to be used as different looking Weirdboyz. I made them different skin colours to help differentiate and because I remember Orks have different skin colours to denote age and size.

Genestealer Cults Commission Assembly – Complete May 18, 2019

An assembly only commission for now, and it is complete. Short and sweet for this force.

Genestealer Cults of the Bladed Cog creed. There was some kitbashing for the Brood Brothers, as well as magnetization and scratch building for the tank.

The new Leman Russ kit does not come with heavy stubber or hunter killer missile options (disappointing). So, I had to find some extra bits I had around and found the guns and missiles, but only one mount each. I used styrene strips and rods to make the weapon mounts for a stubber and a missile.

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.
