Miniature Mondays: Devout, Protectorate Light Warjack

Devout, Protectorate Light Warjack

The other model I primed for NeoCon was the Devout. I didn’t finish Malekus during NeoCon so the Devout is on deck. After I finish Malekus, I’ll get started on the Devout. The left arm has broken off a few times but it should hold up.

Miniature Mondays: Malekus, the Burning Truth

Malekus, the Burning Truth

During NeoCon, we decided to have a painting demo for people looking at our display. I primed a Devout and Malekus and decided to paint the latter. I did most of the painting over the two days but I have to finish the rest of the details.

Miniature Mondays: Blood of Martyrs (Finished)

Blood of Martyrs (Finished)

I finally finished the Blood of Martyrs after weeks of sitting on the table. I also played him in a game yesterday with his warcaster Thyra. I had fun painting this model and tried some new blending techniques. I tried to do some two brush blending on the shoulders but it didn’t come out as smooth as I wanted it. It’s a great start though and my technique will get better with more practice.

This model was also a lesson in purchasing miniatures second hand. The sword was broken at the tip and I couldn’t fix it. Also, half of the left fist was cut off, presumably to fit the sword. The next time I purchase a model, I’ll be sure to look at all the pictures first. Let me know what you think in the comments below and thanks for stopping by.

Miniature Mondays: The Blood of Martyrs

The Blood of Martyrs

During MKII, I wanted to run a fun Thyra list but didn’t have any of the models. I was playing a lot of Kreoss1 and Severius1 lists which had mostly Zealots and Exemplars. I finally found this model for a great price on Ebay. It was a used model that had been primed white but after a bath in some purple stuff, it’s as good as new. The tassels on the blades have broken off and I’m probably not going to replace it. The back fabric panels were not attached, I like the way it looks without it. One of the blades is also chipped on the tip but hopefully I can make it look like battle damage.

Miniature Mondays: I’m Doing Some Hobby Stuff, I Swear!

I’m Doing Some Hobby Stuff, I Swear!

I finally finished painting Testament of Menoth but I’ve been working on some other stuff too. I finished assembling Thyra (not pictured), Blood of Martyrs, the Deliverers Sunburst Crew and Malekus. I need to get them primed so I can finally put on some paint. Need to paint my unit of Daughters as well in order to run a Thyra list.

Testament of Menoth

I finally made some time to paint and Testament is finally finished. I know it’s been awhile since I posted painted models but I want to make this a more frequent segment. I recently assembled a few minis that I can hopefully prime and paint. I’ll be posting more photos in the upcoming weeks to show you what’s on deck. Check out some of the pictures of Testament below.

The Testament of Menoth

The first miniature on the painting table will be the Testament of Menoth. I have had this miniature for a while and decided to make it my first miniature of the new year. It came assembled and since it’s the “epic” version of High Reclaimer, I do not need to make a base. Hopefully I can get this done within a week. Check out the photos below.

Miniature Mondays: The Final Three (Completed)

My Butchers are Complete

I finished painting the last three models in my Butcher team right before Otaku Recon. I should have taken a bit more time to practice blending techniques. I wanted a fully painted team for games and demos at Recon. Overall, I think they came out great. I will probably be painting more Warmachine miniatures in the coming months starting with the Testament of Menoth.

Miniature Mondays: The Final Three

 

The Last Three Butchers

I’m almost done painting my last three minis from the Butchers Guild. With three down, I have three to go. I’m planning on painting these all together since most of the colors will be the same. I’m sticking with standard poses as well. My last three models are Shank, Boiler, and Brisket. These will be my last few Butchers models before I switch to painting more Protectorate minis.

Miniature Mondays: Princess (Finished)

Princess is Finished

After what feels like forever, I finally finished the Butcher mascot Princess. In my previous post, I wanted to paint Princess with a typical bull dog coat. I ran into a bunch of snags throughout the painting process. I realized I didn’t prep the model as well as i could. I didn’t cover the seams in the legs. It’s noticeable from the pictures. I also couldn’t get the white part of the coat to a color that I liked and I couldn’t get brown part to a decent shade. Rather than strip the model I decided to salvage it. It’s not my best work but I’ll use this as a learning experience. It’s good enough for table top. Check out the pictures below.
