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.

Infinity Arianda second batch work in progress

Currently working on the second batch of Arianda figures of this commission. Check out the finished first batch here.

Going with the same color scheme, but where I painted all the armour blue previously, I am now faced with figures without armour. So their coats and jackets will be blue this time, together with some details.

Working on a large Infinity commission

Last month I was contacted by someone who has been gaming with his unpainted Infinity miniatures for a while, but now wanted them painted. Of course I was happy to accept this commission because small skirmish forces like his are right up my alley. By the way if you want to have something painted by me, you can get more information here, or simply get in touch: info@corvusminiatures.com.

The major part of the commission are the miniatures he is already using: Ariadna. To be honest these models weren’t that expertly assembled, so I spent quite a bit of time cleaning them and removing and re-attaching (with pinning this time!) parts where necessary. To give you an idea none of the miniatures were glued to their bases, simply stuck in the slotta base and the large scenic bases were stuck on there with sticky tape. But I don’t blame my customer for this of course, these aren’t the easiest miniatures to get started with if you are new to the hobby.

The other part are two PanOceania blisters, which will become my customer’s second force I think.

Another great thing about this commission is the fact that my customer provided me with a lot of reference material. He mailed me a zip file with lots of images, word documents, etc. Quickly I had an image in my mind of what I (and hopefully he too) wanted and got started with four of the Ariadna figures, which are all a joy to paint. Especially the wolf-guy is fun to do.

I also like the face of this sniper a lot, it’s very well sculpted!

The PanOceania figures are something completely different. The idea here is to have them look like ghosts, like they are wearing some kind of cloak armour.

Work in progress Malifaux Guilty as Charged set

Recently I have been working on a Malifaux commission, here are some work in progress shots.

Overall these are great figures to paint, but the guy being electrocuted is a real challenge :)

Return to Sigmar

The project I kicked off during the summer months is still in its first phases: the Age of Sigmar starter set. In short assembly is mostly done, but painting-wise my progress can be summarized be the picture below. The entire set contains 47 figures, and I’m still working on the first eight of them :) But that’s ok, for me it’s a break from higher quality work. On the other hand higher quality work will be a break from this very basic painting.
