All of 2017

I apparently forgot to make a post out of this earlier; here’s everything I painted in 2017:

Grey Maidens

A squad of Grey Maidens. They show up in Curse of the Crimson Throne, so I’ve painted a captain, a couple lieutenants and some grunts.

Raging Heroes as Warmahordes proxies

What have I done to myself? I got a bunch of my Raging Heroes troops assembled, converted and primed, along with associated P3 figures.

In no particular order: 2 units of Doom Reaver Swordsmen including UA (one P3 model, one RH). Fenris, his dismount, a RH version of Fenris and a unit of Blighted Nyss Hex Hunters. At least on the Doom Reavers I’m going to have to find a way to force myself to paint them with a decent amount of speed or they’ll never get done.

Gray Maidens – Update 1

Working on some Gray Maidens – grunts, lieutenants and captain – for Curse of the Crimson Throne.

VMA Steel + Citadel Guilliman Blue (glaze), then mixing in VMA Aluminum for the armor.  Wash of Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade (shade).  RMS HD Crimson Red for the cloth bits and RMS Tanned Flesh for the exposed skin.

Marauder #2 – Update #1

So back on Black Friday, Privateer Press had old Mk II battleboxes for $10 each. That was too good a deal to pass up, so I got a Khador one amongst others. I don’t really need more Destroyers or Juggys, though, and I DO need more Marauders. Marauder arms are hard to come by now-a-days, so I was forced to make my own. My modding skills don’t match my vision, but they are more than serviceable.

Step #1, remove “upper arm” part of arm from some random arms.

Step #2, take some small binder clips and, using a Dremel, remove the rounded bits

Step #3, using styrene bits, construct an arm. Fill in binder clips with putty

Step #4, decorate the arms a bit, also zenithal priming

Step #5 (the hard to photograph one), deepen shadows and brighten highlights a la sketch style

Now, on to painting. Here’s what I have so far.

Red

Adding some oranges and yellows to the bright spots, and giving it a quick matte varnish (the Daner and Rowney inks are very glossy)
