Infinity again, Nomads this time

Hello all! I am making another return to painting Infinity, again as a commission. The customer wanted to have a neon green with black color scheme. At first I wasn’t all too convinced of painting the underlying hexes/chainmail material this way, but I’m glad I did, I think it looks great!

This first model is 90% done. I painted it first as a test model. After this we decided to continue with this color scheme.

There are five other models in this batch. I painted the green on all of them, and I am now proceeding with cleaning up the black armor, this one is the first one which on which I can continue the work on the armor:

A very fun and challenging mini to paint. Lots of different surfaces, colors and textures here. In total I spent over 20 hours on this guy.

Work in progress Shadespire & Goblin Shaman

Work on the Shadespire set has started, beginning with the Stormcast Eternals faction. All three are finished at the time of writing, but I am going to wait for the finished Chaos faction for a photo shoot. Below you can see the last work in progress shot of the three figures:

After they were finished I started working on one of the latest GW figures: the Fungoid Cave Shaman. The idea was to enter it in my local gamestore for the Malign Portents painting competition, but because I am spending way more time on this figure than initially estimated, I will most likely not be able to enter him in time. Nonetheless it will be a great addition to my display cabinet once finished.

This figure is a joy to paint, with lots of different surfaces and colors, and very challenging to find a good order to paint the different parts. I decided to paint the staff separately.

Desktop update February 2018

Hello readers! It’s been quite a while since I did this kind of post but today I want to give you a heads-up on what’s been happening on my painting desk lately.

After finishing the vampire and Infinity commissions, it was time to pick up the pace again on some of my own projects. But before I give you a run down of these I want to show you these pictures which were taken by the customer for which I painted a bunch of Infinity Arianda miniatures in the past few months. These miniatures not only look great on the table but they undoubtly play better as well ๐Ÿ˜€

The first few miniatures I painted were these Orcs for my LoTR Mordor army. These are two Mordor Orc captains and the one on the left is a named character called Kardush the Firecaller. The latter is a rather rare sculpt, but I finally found one on a second hand website. The only problem was that the staff was broken, but this was easily fixed with a pin and some superglue. While I was pinning I decided to reduce the lenght of the fireblast as well, making it a bit more transport and gaming friendly. I think it looks at least as good and lot more practical!

The exact starting point isn’t marked on this blog, (onlyย this post), but 2,5 years ago I started working on the Age of Sigmar starter set. Last month I finally finished this set! Now to find some scenery and some time to try out a game ๐Ÿ˜€ These Blood Warriors were the last to get painted. If I find a decent chunk of time I will photograph all the miniatures.

Oh and by the way those GW paint handles are great!
