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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

Miniature Mondays: Reznik2 and Durst

Finally Finished

After months of procrastination and loss of interest in painting, I finished my two Protectorate Warcasters that have been sitting on my table. I found some painting inspiration and they were completed in no time. Reznik2 was a pain but worth it. He looks great on the battle field and hopefully I build a better list for him in MK3. So far, I’m 0-2 but I know I can play him better.

I also finished Durst. I should have finished him a lot sooner but I dropped him and he came apart. I was bummed about it but I dropped him in some cleaner and assembled him. My clumsiness might have been a blessing in disguise however because I pinned him in more places. Hopefully he’s more durable. I haven’t played him in any lists yet but I’m sure I can find something great.

I’m not sure what’s next for the painting table. I have a Devout and Testament assembled but I need to prime them. I really want to put Thyra and unit of Daughters together as well. I also have some Guild Ball models to paint! So many models, so little time. Let me know what you think about the models. Leave a comment at the bottom. Thanks for reading!
