Pistol Wraith WIP


Pistol wraith is getting progress as well. I found out that the mini is somewhat hard to paint since it's hard to tell what is actually all that stuff under the coat. A skirt perharps? :) If someone has an idea I'd be glad to hear it.

Lelith Hesperax WIP


Quick update on  Lelith. I'm trying to make sure that I paint this one well enough to compensate acquisition process.

So far the skin getting some paint on. I'll post the full list of paints once I'm happy with the results.

Terrain making WIP


** EDIT**
Added a pic of the other bits I finished at the bottom.

Thought I'd give a shot at making some terrain. I got loads of foam from a friend who was doing some renovating. There can only be one use for a wargamer for it :)

First the tools:

Stitch thralls: update


The stitch thralls have also progressed somewhat. Some of the images have been shot while they were still wet, so they might look a bit glossy.

For the priming I wanted to try different priming techniques with them and see what difference they make when painting them and what are the end results like.

Blood bowl: Wood Elves

Wardancers and catchers

So it's another trip down the memory lane. Not so long this time though. I painted this team around about 8 years ago. The end result is much better than with the dark elves but still there's a lot of room for improvements. For example this was the first time I was painting red and white... and it looks like that too.

Facebook bandwagon

Yes, I'm on it. 2nd truck, 106th row, 68th from the left.
Right under the followers on the right sidebar.

Just another way to get updates from me :)


Blood bowl: Dark Elves

Line elves

Thought I'd post... well Furinji actually asked in one comment to post photos of my current Blood Bowl teams.

So, here are the Dark Elves.

BB Ogre: Painting Skin


I started the skin for the ogre. This time I used the airbrush cause I wanted try it out for some more detailed work.

Acquired: Lich Lord Terminus


I just had to buy this beast because it was just too cheap @ Boostep. There was a slight glitch though since I ordered it at the end of June.

The paint pots


I read redmanphill's post this morning and it instantly reminded me of this funny story (old I know, but still valid).

I guess a hot debate took place among Games Workshop marketing department. I can imagine it:

- Welcome gentlemen. Today's topic is "How can we make people buy more paint?". We sell miniatures, books, rules, on everything we increase our margins except on paint. This has to change. How can we force customers to buy more of Citadel paints?

Necrosurgeon: painting skin


Necrosurgeon is getting paint on. Somehow I'm really loving this model :)

I'm aiming for zenithal highlighting here again. I really love that technique as it is relatively easy and produces really good looking minis.

Space wolves: long fangs


I'm trying to post an overview of both my armies, space pups and dark eldar, here eventually. Yes, even the ones I painted 20 years ago. These models I finished up about a half a year ago so they're not that 'bad'. I still have to fix the original metal long fangs which still have the 90's paints on them.

Fixing Lelith Hesperax


So Lelith... 

I should've returned the damned model to GW.  My GS skills were nowhere near doing the small detail work to fix all the parts on it. So I just did the ones I knew I could do. The spikes (read: Finecast tubes) were impossible. I just went ahead and cut the malformed ones off on the leg.

BB ogre: waiting for the paint job

So after a looong hiatus of painting a Blood Bowl model, here's one: The Ogre. I think I ordered this something like 10 years ago for just the painting, since I don't own a team that has an ogre in their rosters. So far I have wood elves, dark elves, norse (unpainted) and khemri (unpainted).

Necrosurgeon and stitch thralls, pistol wraith: update


My summer vacation is now over and what a summer it's been. Statistically it was the hottest July in 20 something years here in Finland. Hopefully I can advance my projects on the painting table now a bit more, now that it's gotten colder (normalised) again  :) Above image has all the current minis I'm working on now and from now on I'm separating them here in the blog. 

And without a further ado, here's the Warmachine necrosurgeon, stitch thralls and a pistol wraith.
