New WIP Gallery – Chimera

I haven’t painted any figure for a while!
I have few assembled models waiting for painting, it’s one of them.
Here’s Chimera, from Games Workshop. It’s plastic model version.
Cast isn’t greatest, it for sure has less details than any resin model they’ve made. On the other hand, it’less fragile. And that’s it.
Seams were pretty large and it took a while to finish prep-work.

But building part itself was rather straight-forward, so my WIP is going to focus on painting. Starting here:

Enjoy!

New Gallery – Tyranid Scythed Hierodule

Well, I haven’t been here for a while.
But here’s an update! Just finished Warhammer 40k commission for my friend.
It’s Tyranid Scythed Hierodule from Forge World, hand-painted with Citadel paints.
I was supposed to make it look easy to copy for my friend.

I have a few started/ready to paint figures, but somehow I can’t make myself into mood to make any. I get distracted way too easily, can’t find enough time to just sit and paint without breaks, or my neck starts to hurt. Soon™.

Enjoy!

New WIP Gallery – Tyranid Scythed Hierodule

That’s something I don’t do everyday. My friend asked me to paint few units of his Warhammer 40k army. This is one of them (the largest one and actually a resin kit).
That’s quite challenging for me, since I never had to follow W40K painting schemes (this one is made by my friend using official colours) and using Citadel paints at all. But it’s still fun 😀

New WIP Gallery: Sha’un – Ram Tribe Warrior

It was supposed to be entry for GK forum’s contest, but I couldn’t make it on time. Well, to be clear, this figure still isn’t finished.
White ram warrior in tarnished brass armour.
This time, next to my mostly used Vallejo paints, I’ve started using other brands:
P3 fromula, Citadel and Army Painter.
From those mentioned, I like Army Painter the most and you’re going to see me using their colours more often. They’re having richer pigments, than Vallejo in my opinion (not saying that Vallejo is worse. It isn’t).

Soon I should finish this figure, meanwhile look at WIP pics.

Enjoy!

Water Palette

I’m often getting distracted when I’m painting kits. This results in paints getting dry and wasted (since I’m using acrylics, which dries fast).
Once I’ve been browsing net for reference pics and I’ve found this idea on someone else’s blog. It turns out you can buy such wet palette, but since I’m broke – I decided to make my own.
Here’s short comic about that.
