It has been awhile since I’ve taken some pics of finished miniatures, but this is what I do to relax. Those of you who aren’t familiar with this hobby, just keep in mind that the round bases on these are about the size of a quarter.
First up are some units for Warmachine.
Croes Cutthroats. These were an attempt at doing camo patterns. Minis are so small that free handing a camo pattern usually looks terrible.
Here’s a detail on the pattern. Basically it is using little bits of sponge as a brush.
And details. I put a little extra work into the leader’s face.
Legionaires. This unit was an experiment in speed painting. Total elapsed time, not counting spray priming and letting that set, was about 5 hours for 14 figs. I zenithal primed, then painted light grey base coats and used lots of washes. I went for a very monchromatic look.
Recently I got an air brush and started experimenting with it. These next two warjacks were air brushed green and shaded, then I just went back and did some simple details and rust effect. I’m liking this air brush thing. 🙂
The big guy.
The little guy.
The next individual figs are either for Warmachine the game, or for the upcoming next Writer Nerd Game Night Iron Kingdoms RPG campaign.
For my merc army, Lynissa
For the WNGN for Tony, this is from Hell Dorado, and I’m really really happy with how this one came out. My iPhone camera doesn’t do it justice. This is one of the best I’ve ever done.
And the back
Painting white and making it actually look good is a challenge, and takes a lot of layers, though I cheated and started over a tan base coat to make it look weathered.
Then these two are for WNGN. The red and green one is actually a sci-fi Infinity model, but I sculpted the tricorn hat and mask out of green stuff to make him a proper steampunk highwayman. The other fig is brighter than my normal tastes, but Pat requested festive. 🙂
Then this one is for Steve. And it was tough finding a steampunk gunslinger magical Raylan Givens, but we did. The fig is from Malifaux.
Then here are some other misc. figs I’ve painted over the last couple of months. The IKRPG knight was my Sir Chuck Finley for the charity game I ran last weekend.
These guys weren’t for anything in particular, but just looked badass. Figs are Hell Dorado and Malifaux. The colors on the knight really pop in person.
And this big dude with the hammer was fun to paint.
