Will & I jammed another game of Kill Team last night. He played the harlequin troupe he’s been working on, while I put together a team of Dark Angels. I wouldn’t say it was very tactical…
My paint to figure ratio is pretty high. I used all these paints on Tùrmundd!
On this guy the palette is as wide open as it is limited with the Dark Angels.
On his birthing day the father gave to his son a great name:
Now, his only reminder of home is the plaid of his dusty bedroll.
Done! Finally! I’m sure to find more stuff to paint or fix or decide something needs to be changed, but I think he’s there.
Pretty happy with how this one turned out overall. He is very colorful!
A ragtag collection of flops, fighters, and a fifteen year old wizzard, sworn to fight the Legions of the Dead.
But are they ready to defend this small village from the oncoming horde?
I did a bit more work on this and think it may be nearing completion. I added some taller red flowers and increased the density of them in some places. They’re also back behind the log, along with a bunch of laser cut leaves. You can see a few of the leaves here. They’re not really to scale, but we can assume they’re from some bush or something.
The frame is only cleaned up in primer, so I’ll go over that with black craft paint when I get some. I won’t see my mom for a few weeks, so I’ll have plenty of opportunity to add or alter things, but I’m pretty happy with where this sits now.
I was trying to focus the photo on the pale blue butterfly, but it’s too tiny for my camera or something. Anyway, she’s up on the branch getting a lot of attention now.
Just a couple of heroes from Zombicide Black Plague, which I’ve been enjoying (again!) lately. It’s a great game with some really cool – but extremely cheap – figures to practice on or just play around with. I’ve painted up a couple friends’ favorites, along with a few I wanted to paint. I’ll surprise them next time they’re over.
These are ‘4 album’ minis, meaning less than an hour a mini. For that pace, I’m quite happy. I think they look great from tabletop height. They’re sloppy & in many cases I’m barely coating white primer with washes, inks, and thin/broken paint, but I want them to look childish, a bit like watercolor in places, and most of all… I want to crank ’em out in a night or two!
I didn’t even bother with mold lines, but I tried to catch a little of their wacky humor.
Another terminator joins the Dark Angels! This one recalls a victory over the forces of Nurgle decades ago.
I think the painting is a bit neater than on the first, identical termie. This one’s got a bit heavier weathering, though. I still have a detail or two to finish (zombie beard), but he’s basically ready to roll.
Unlike their heavily-converted or kitbashed peers, these figures came straight out of the Dark Vengeance box. These terminators were some of the first times I’ve used an airbrush for basecoating.
Here are several figures converted for our growing 40k universe. I should have a few more finished models for my Dark Angels kill team soon.
The prone plasma gunner was an interesting challenge.
