Guild Ball Fishermen

Quick post here. Painted up a couple more Fishermen for a Guild Ball team I was commissioned to do a while back. Quite nice figures to paint. Just the right bit of chunk to them and pretty well defined sculpting for digital sculpts. We've got Corsair, the big guy and Sakana.

Supergirl & Wonder Woman

Just a couple of models painted recently, both by Knight Models. Supergirl and Wonder Woman.

I'm not the biggest fan of Knight Models but I rather enjoyed painting Supergirl. It was a nice change from stuff I had been working on previously. Quite a simple figure really. Wonder Woman was a bit more tricky though as Knight tend to produce models with very slight detail (it's all there it's just very subtle) and it's easy to lose it under a couple of coats of paint. It was the case with both models but with Wonder Woman's costume being more detailed it was more obvious an issue. Certainly a bit of an eye strainer.

Blood Bowl stuff

Second post in two days! As the title says, Blood Bowl is the order of the day. Final bits and pieces from a commission job spanning two teams. Mostly Chaos dwarves but a couple of pieces for a halfling team. All previously posted here as far as I can recall.

Anyway, the halfling team got a couple of treeman markers. Not sure of the manufacturer off the top of my head or what purpose they serve in game but they're nice little things all the same.

The meat of the pics are for the Chaos dwarves though, mostly big guys. Minotaurs and bull centaurs.

Not painted a black minotaur before so it was a nice change. Varnish came out a bit shiny on this guy but it's not as bad in reality as it looks under my lights. Funnily enough I didn't care too much for this model at first. It's not really from my era of GW (although I do love the current GW stuff). A bit too 90's perhaps but once I started painting it I really fell for the model.

Whilst the mino grew on me the big hat dwarves are not really my thing. Nice and chunky though so not bad to paint although the bull centaurs did take a bit more time and effort than their two legged stunty brethren. A little bit busy in places. Certainly the age of skullz. These and the minotaurs were both real wrist breakers. It's surprising how heavy they can be when you're holding them for hours on end.

More Crooked Dice

Guess who's forgotten all about his blog? Nothing new for anyone following me on Facebook but here's a few bits I did recently for Crooked Dice. To start with there's Mr Mangel who joins a few of the freaky sorts from earlier posts. All part the Children of the Fields 7TV cast.

And what appears to be the beginning of a post apoc range based on some familiar sculpts from a few years back. Wasteland Warriors.

Bit of a Mad Max vibe to them but I could also see them fitting in really well with all things Fallout. I really fancied painting a blue vault suit on one but stuck to the brief. Turned out I could have gone off script after all. Oh well.

Local miniatures for local people

A couple of new releases on the way from Crooked Dice and a perfect fit with the Hurdy Gurdy Man from a previous post. The Miller and his Wife. I see them more as shop keepers ;)

That's yer lot for this post.

Red Box Games Norse

A quick post to show some recent Red Box Games Norse I painted. These are part of a much bigger commission that long time followers will likely have seen me working through over quite some time now. There's also a Hasslefree Miniatures figure in there, Ynjen who fits in quite nicely.

Still more to do but onto other things next week.

Blood Bowl Chaos Dwarves

Another quick post to show some Blood Bowl chaos dwarves I painted up for a commission. These will be going with some hobgoblins that I painted quite some time ago.

The owner converted a few of the models and added some extra details here and there for variety. There are three bull centaurs to do and a couple of minotaurs too.
