From the painting desk #8

December 31, 2010

This post will have the massive honour of being my last post this year. I’ve been painting a bit lately, and it’s time to show what I’ve been up to.

First up is a zombie from Mega Miniatures. Nothing fancy. The model had been on my desk for ages, so I spent an hour or so to get him off the desk and into the cabinet. A very simple paintjob, and I love going to town with the blood spray effect, which I think makes the sledgehammer even more brutal.

The next one is a zombie punk rocker from Recreational Conflict (go here for my review). I put some more work into her, and I think it shows. The presence of The Disciple inspired me to use some of my understandably less used paints, and I think they really made the punk rock look work.

There’s a bit of a Warmachine fever sweeping our gaming group, and yes, it appears I’m getting into a new game system. What can you do, the models are just too lovely. I picked Khador as my faction of choice, as I really love their visual style. I’d also previously bought some Khador widowmakers to use as engineers/champions in my WHFB Empire army. They went into their originally intended service instead, and here’s the first of them painted. I think he came out pretty nice. I have to mention though, that bleedin’ steampunk basically means straps, straps, buckles, piping and straps. All of which are a pain to paint. Can’t have everything, I guess.

With these I’d like to wish you all a happy new year! Keep painting, gaming, blogging and spending indecent amounts of money on miniatures and assorted largely useless paraphernalia. I know I will.
