Champions of Death

One Blood Bowl team finished and on it's way home.
These guys were a real treat to paint and I think they look pretty good (if I do say so myself!).

Now that I have finished the Champions of Death I can really crack on with the Necromantic team. I finished the second flesh golem and have made a start on a few more minis too.

Base coated and inked the armour of these guys, the cloth will be green and the ornamentation will be done in gold. Still early stages but will come together soon enough.

THese Ghouls are again base coated and will be done in the same colours as the rest of the team but with a greyish highlight to the flesh , similar to the ghouls in the other team. 

These guys have not been started in earnest just yet but since they are cool minis, I had to get a pic of them up! looking forward to getting some paint down on them!

Have pretty much finished college now and have a couple of months free to get on with my hobby stuff, so fingers crossed i will get some work done at a reasonable pace now. 

I have also been looking back at my Imperial Guard and will likely get back on track with those guys soon, it has been a while and there are still plenty of minis that need finishing (well it is an all infantry army, durrr!). Will get some pictures up as soon as i can and I may even set up a website for my hobby and painting stuff if i feel it will get any traffic, the hardest part is coming up with a name! and on the subject of names, my guard still remain without one set in stone. I was thinking of Cadian 249th "The Ice Raptors" or something of that ilk; what do you guys think? any suggestions?

Until next time,

Blood Bowl

Hi folks,

Back again and now with a considerable lack of college work to do! 2 more exams and I am finished until September, so I can get cracking with all my outstanding projects whilst i still have the time :)

Spent yesterday and today working on the two Blood Bowl teams that have been popping up on here over the last few posts. First up, the GW Undead team:

Having a blast painting these cool mini's in the Champions of Death colour scheme, still need a little finishing off and the bases need some turf, but otherwise I am really happy so far.

Next we have the second Necromantic team, still need to finish the conversion work on the zombies but just had to get some paint on to these two AWESOME minis...

I wanted to break up the big slab of flesh these monstrosities possess, so I added a few different rotting skin tones in there to do just that. Rotten flesh was used to highlight up from the base colours of Dark Flesh, Dheneb Stone and Tallarn Flesh to give them a sickly to tone. The Rotten Flesh parts were highlighted up using white and Sunburst yellow.

Have enjoyed working on both of these teams so far and have built up a good head of steam to get these finished.

I have also been doing a little painting for my Pathfinder games too, first up is my Cleric; Cook.

A couple of small conversions to the Dirk - Male Rogue miniature by Reaper Miniatures, new shield, light hammer, pack and pouch. Nothing fancy but he has plenty of character.

Next I have just primed another Pathfinder miniature to work on between Blood Bowl teams, a female ninja called Xue Shinra (Final Fantasy = Best Game EVER!)

Based on the Ameiko Kaijitsu mini, also by Reaper. I kept it fairly simple conversion wise by making a new blade for her (supposed to be a wakizashi) and adding a hilt to the existing Scabbard (will be a second  wakizashi or possibly a Katana).

Hopefully with a little more time on my hands, I will have more to post soon. 

Until then, be good.
