  1. Sure thing! I'll write something more when I've painted a couple of figures, but I'm following Marco Frisoni's way of doing things. You basically cover everything with a thick wash of oil paint, then remove most of it again, so you have a super thin layer of paint everywhere. Then you wetblend everything, which works really well with oils. I painted Toni from a layer of completely white primer, but I think it be much easier to start from a zenithal priming. That'll get the deep shadows using less paint, which'll cut days off the drying time, while still allowing for the very high, almost white, highlights.
  2. I'm doing something! It's time to actually paint the actual Union guys, so they can beat the crap out of whatever is in their way. I always do a gimmick, and this time is no exception, but it's more of a technique than a gimmick. I'm practicing using oil paints for something besides washes, so the M&SU will be painted using nothing but oils. Also, all metal will be NMM. Toni is the first model that I've painted this way, and it went okay! She might need a little violet in the shadows of her face, but otherwise, she's done.
  3. Right, I painted the Alt Firestarter for the painting contest. I went a bit too light on the OSL for this, so it's not super great, but at least it's done so I have a super cool/impractical Firestarter to put on the table
  4. It did this for me too. You can actually scroll down in the tiny window, so you can vote for the ones you want to. The page looks fine after I voted for some reason.
  5. Some good entries this time too! You can see all submissions in the gallery where people submitted photos, if you guys hadn't noticed.
  6. The painting contest is over, so I can say that I made the Flower Child Willie. The contest also helped me break out of my slump, so that was great!
  7. I've been in a painting slump for a while. I bought a resin 3d printer, and a ton of friends and family did the whole "print and paint me this!"-thing, and I hate it. Now I've pissed off a bunch of people by telling them that I'm not a print shop, and that all freebies have been doled out, but at least I have time and peace to paint something that I want to. I broke out of the slump with my favorite Malifaux model that I'll never use; the Wrastler that's about to powerslam a pig.
  8. Something different this time. A pair of Doomseekers from The Other Side, that I'll be using as wizard and apprentice in Frostgrave. The purple guy is the wizard. They're already varnished, so they have the dusty look that only my camera can pick up.
  9. Paul Crockett and The Scorpius finished the keyword for now. There's only the Razorspine Rattlers left, and I'll be painting them when they show up at my FLGS. The Scorpius will get get a coat of gloss varnish on the syringes after I give it the usual protective coating.
  10. I like the glow, it separates the base from the mini. Did you use dry pigments for it?
  11. Finally! The Void Hunters and the Scion of the Void was released, so I have all of Tara's models finished. She was the first master I looked at when I went to my FLGS to try out the game, but I skipped her because she was missing too much of her keyword. I'll be trying her out on the 10th, and I'm really looking forward to it. I went for a pale look with reddish purple shadows on the hunters, and something similar but less pale on the Scion. I also did my usual "From Nothing"-gimmick on them. And a family photo of the keyword.
  12. More painting. This time it's the Cerberus, Slateridge Maulers, and Molemen for my Marcus crew. I usually paint everything by paintbrush, but something like these guys are mostly done with airbrush, then I add the details with paintbrush. It make this kind of models much more enjoyable to paint, since I don't find them very interesting.
  13. I went back and fixed all the broken images. Also, I painted these two for the painting competition. I accidentally sliced the nose off my Toni when I was cleaning the giant moldline that runs straight down her face, so I figured that I'd turn her into Toni Firesides/Ghost Fighter, so she fits in if I want to run her with Kaeris. I should probably convert Mouse as well. The Adze is for my Marcus crew, so Myranda can turn into something besides Grootslang. I figured that a trap-predator that makes it super obvious that it's a trap wouldn't be very successful, so there is OSL on the head tentacle, but it very subtle.
  14. Nice! Congrats to the other winners, your painting is top notch!
  15. *Hellrider starts playing, except Rob Halford is awkwardly trying to sing "Mechanical" instead of "Hell", while trying to keep the same tune.*
