Miniature Mondays: Deliverer Sunburst Crew (Finished)

Deliverer Sunburst Crew (Finished)

After months of sitting on the shelf, I finally finished painting the Sunburst crew. I still have to do some touch ups on the metals but I’m happy with it overall. I finished the unit in time for EpixCon! Check out the pictures below.

Miniature Mondays: Deliverer Sunburst Crew

 

Deliverer Sunburst Crew

The last unit I painted was the Temple Flameguard which I completed almost TWO YEARS AGO! I have been lazy in assembling and painting units but it’s based on need. The DSC and some artillery have gotten better and I’m definitely taking advantage of that unit. With the nerfing of some of the Protectorate guns like the Reckoner, Errants and Zealots, I needed to fill my lists with a hard hitting unit. I picked up the unit on Ebay for a fairly cheap price and have primed them. They are ready to paint! Check out the primed photos below and check back next week for some finished pictures of the unit.

Miniature Mondays: Thyra, Flame of Sorrow (Finished)

 

Thyra, Flame of Sorrow (Finished)

Thyra, is a Daughters of the Flame warcaster. Daughters, are the Protectorate’s assassins/ninjas. They are quick and stealthy which made me paint her a dark color. I tried a different technique on the face which came out better than expected but the eyes are off a bit. I didn’t like the highlights on the cloth, and will need to practice more two brush blending or layering. I also didn’t like the way the metals came out. I need to work on highlighting and washing.
Overall, I loved painting this model. It pushed me to do better and try new techniques. It didn’t come out the way I wanted it to, but I had a great time. I need to watch and read more tutorials and try it out on more minis. Thanks for reading and check out the minis below.

Miniature Mondays: Devout, Protectorate Light Warjack (Finished)

 

Devout, Protectorate Light Warjack (Finished)

After sitting in my miniature drawer for a year or two, I finally fished painting the Devout. This was a fun and stressful model. I bought this model used and it did come with problems. The shield arm had to be modified since the connection was fragile and broke when stripping the old paint. This connection broke during painting but I was able to pin it back. It doesn’t look great but it’s holding up.
I had a lot of fun painting this model since I was trying to implement some new techniques. It did not turn out the way I liked but it means I need more practice. Also, I’m using my DSLR to take pictures. This should yield higher quality finished photos. Thanks for reading and check out the pictures below.

I’m almost done with the Devout and I have to prime my next model to paint. I assembled Thyra earlier in the year to test out a list but now I think it is time to paint her. Small bits of the model are missing and the pose is a little off but it will have to do. The smaller model and details may be a hurdle that I will have to overcome. It’s going to be a challenge but it’s only going to make me better as a painter.

Miniature Mondays: Malekus, the Burning Truth (Finished)

Malekus is Done

This model has been done for at least a month. Laziness combined with birthdays, family gatherings and general busyness, has stopped me from taking some finished pictures. I will try to be better going forward.

One of the things I need to work on is model prep. After painting, I started to see some mold lines and gaps that should have been filled. This was the first time working with Privateers new plastic which was great to work with. I need to focus on basic model prep and hopefully, future models will not have those glaring mold lines! Overall, I’m happy with the final mini. It’s one of my bests minis which is encouraging. I looked at a few of my early models and I am proud of how far I’ve come. The only way to get better is more practice.
