Stormwall (with a K)

Stormwall, which is the same kit as my Hurrikane, with different magnetized bits, plus Stormpods.  The only really notable thing is that I put a little more effor into the TMM on the big guns, which I think makes them look a lot nicer.

77044: Turanil, Male Elf Paladin

I offered to paint up some RPG characters for a random person at my FLGS.  I only got one suggestion, a half-elf paladin with a green knight vibe.  Turanil here was a great candidate, and he got painted up over the course of last weekend.  MSP Grass Green, up through Reaper NPP Poison Green and MSP Alien Goo for the highlights.  Used Violet Shadow for color contrast in the shadows.  NMM because I was feeling like it (Reaper’s Gold NMM Triad for the golds, various blues for the steel).

Kyojin Bersekers

Several years ago, I commissioned Blue Table Painting to paint my Relic Knights Noh Empire faction.  At the time, Kyojin Berserkers were so-so and also came in 1-2 man units.  I haven’t played 2.0 yet, but I’ve got a tournament coming up at the beginning of February, and the Berserkers look a bit better plus they come in 1-4 man units now.  So I painted up the other 2 that I had using the same paint scheme as Blue Table used.  The main difference is that I used a yellow-gold NMM whereas they used red-gold NMM.  I wanted to try out my Reaper NMM triad so I didn’t worry about matching that exactly.  I airbrushed the skin, and used lots of two-brush blending for the grey so that it would be a fast paint job.  All-in-all, probably 10 hours for the pair.

Here they are next to the Blue Table Painting version.  The newly-painted guys are on the left.

Hurrikane

Whew, that’s a lot of surface area to cover.  I’ve also got the Stormwall variant coming, but I wanted to get this guy done before the end of the year for the Point-a-Day challenge.

Standard orangy-red South Khador color scheme.  The big anvil on his chassis is made with styrene strips, while the shoulder-pad ones are freehand painted.  Black is highlighted with P3 Coal Black.  Lightning is white + GW blue glaze + white.  Metal is VMA Chainmail Silver and VGA Steel, washed with GW Nuln Oil and drybrushed with VMC Oiled Steel.  VGC Glorious Gold for the anvils, and P3 Bright Brass for the brass parts.  Final highlights on the yellow metals added in some Vallejo Metal Medium.

Base is a Secret Weapon based “Blasted Wetlands” plus 2 part resin water.  The pour had a couple issues, but went mostly okay.  I used a bunch of washes on the base itself to give it a lot of variation.  I also threw some plants and things in there so it wouldn’t look quite so empty.  I also used the AK Interactive swamp gel around his feet  (the lighter color under his left foot is actually some that I didn’t notice hadn’t finished drying yet).

Lylyth, Reckoning of Everblight

My take on Lylyth 3 (minus the base, which I haven’t even started yet – but it’s the same base I used on the Throne)

The mammoth is a GW Thundertusk. There were lots of fun little details to paint, especially when I left most of the gross things from the kit off. As for the wounds, I figure this guy didn’t take very well to being blighted.

3D Printed Pillboxes

I printed up some Warmachine-style terrain on my new 3D printer, one for myself and a few for my local game store.

This one is pretty dark and drab.  Primed with 50/50 Metallic and Black Primer.  Grey parts first covered with cheap craft paint, then tinted with miniature paints.  Printed with PLA on “High” resolution – .12mm layers.

These ones were primed with just Metallic Primer, the grey is a different color of craft paint, and the bottom is red/blue miniature paint.  The red one was printed with PLA at “Hyper” resolution – .05mm layers, and the blue one with ABS at High, but with a thin coat of gap-filling resin over most of it.
