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 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.
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 😀
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, (only 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 😀 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!
So time for another project! I got Shadespire as a present last christmas, I will show you the progress on the miniatures in a next post. Thanks for reading!
