Horus Heresy 30k Thousand Sons Tartaros #1

Image
I have finally started work on my Thousand Sons Tartaros Terminators. New color recipe and a hybrid kit-bash of the BoP Tartaros and Scarab Occult Terminators. 



There are another two, they just didn't quite fit into the photo. 

So what is my recipe, this time around?
Primer - Stynylres BlackBase - VGC Heavy RedMid-tone - VGC Bloody RedHighlight - VGC Orange RedPin-wash Shade - Carroburg CrimsonNow, I like the signature look of the gloss 'cherry' effect. So to achieve this, I will go back over the miniatures and dust them with Badger Ghost Tint Fresh Blood Red.

Fingers crossed the Ghost Tint works, if it doesn't it will be a real shame because the color scheme effect, thus far, looks awesome.


Horus Heresy Characters - Master of Mankind - The God Emperor of Mankind #2

Refreshed after painting the Saurus warrior, I got stuck into the base for my Emperor laying down the blue tones, highlights and some weathering.


Now to get stuck into the fern and skull details.

More to come.

Citadel Miniatures Seraphon / Saurus

Image
I was a little deflated by the Reaper Bones miniature, so I thought I would try a different company's miniature. This time I  tried an OOP Citadel Miniatures Saurus Warrior. I believe Games Workshop call these guys Seraphon, now-a-days.


This is how it started out.




I really have to say the exaggerated detail pretty much paints itself and, truthfully, it was a ball of fun to work on.








And the final piece, with completed base.







Reaper Bones Kobold - for a friend.

Image
So a good friend of mine has a grandson and wanted to get a few things painted for him. Given I don't actually do commissions, as I don't think I am that good of a miniature painter, however I thought I would try to paint a miniature for someone else.


First up, my friend's grandson had a D&D miniature that he owned and wanted painted. It was a Reaper Bones series Kobold. Now I will say one thing about the Reaper Bones series, they are cheap and good bang for your buck, especially if all you want is tabletop quality.


But this is where my praises kind of end. Mold slippage, excess flash and inconstant detail. A bit of a nightmare, really. That being said paint goes down on these miniatures okay.





My Friend's Grandson asked for green dragon scales and orange hair, which is pretty cool as they are very contrasting and cause a good amount of 'pop'.  My only issue was, the miniature was starting to look a little too much like The Hulk. Given this predicament, I swit…

Imperial Knight Titan - Legion Audax Auxcillary Part #2

Image
Some progress on the Legio Audax Knight Titan. Interestingly  Titans are pretty easy to paint, but because they're so big, they kinda become too large and unwieldy. Now Audax is know for its firey paint scheme, so I am going to try something with this guy, by adding a crackle layer over the fire blend.

As you can see the bases is almost complete, and I even got a little time to work on the carapace, adding some scorch marks to break up the monotony.
