Craftworld Mymeara in progress part 6

This is the final piece of the pie :) Just one unit stands between me and another completed army. I have one small hangup though, they are unfortunately the finecast release, the feeling of polishing a turd comes to mind. Great sculpts though and I know I can make them shine. I just REALLY don't like finecast. Preferences aside here is an in progress look at the wicked clowns. I have them all basecoated and now it's time to work up the colors, then as if the colors weren't gaudy enough I'll add a generous amount of checkers and swirls.

Stay tuned :)

WIP Pyre Troll

Watching the current army I'm painting for my friend come to a finish has given me a deep itch to paint a little something for my own nerdly obsessions. I was drawn to this model when it first released and he's been patiently waiting his turn for a month now so I decided to do a nice tabletop level job on him. I'm planning on bringing my trolls to Adepticon and the idea is to have my whole force fully painted.

Here's where he sits after about 3 hours. Almost there and after I finish my task on the next unit for Kevin's Mymearean army I might be able to steal another hour to finish him off  : )

Craftworld Mymeara in progress part 5

..And on it goes. Yesterday I happily put the finisher on a pair of Venoms. Delivering the hate in style. When the army was handed off it didn't include the clear rods to mount them in the air so they'll have to hover for the time being.

Today's mission: get a good start on the unit of Warwalkers. With the army over half way done I'm getting a little more, if possible, ramped up to see it completed and then I'll take some time and share a nice group of family photos.

Craftworld Mymeara in progress part 4

Just a few cabinet views today. I'm hot on the trail of some wyches which I'm about to sit down and finish off. Coming along nicely though. I should have the whole army done by the end of the month :)

And the dirty allies. Welcome to 6th edition.

Stay tuned, more on the way. Happy Valentine's day to those who do.

Craftworld Mymeara in progress part 3

Filling out a Heavy support spot in the mighty Wraithlord. Yes, he's missing the shoulder mounted weapon, it has been magnetized along with a mess of other weapons and I'm waiting to knock them all out at the same time in the near future : ) 

I think the next step is to fancy up a Farseer or three to lead these ghosts.

Craftworld Mymeara in progress part 2

Here is step one, a 10 man block of Wraithguard. I'm taking this army out one unit at a time to keep my interest going. A very fun combination of colors to work with and it has me looking forward to the next step, the Wraithlord.

Here they are in their completed glory, a nice tabletop level to bounce dice off of. I'm thinking the addition of some sparse patches of light grass would compliment them nicely.

Stay tuned for more :)

Craftworld Mymeara in progress

I just kicked off this project yesterday. It was handed to me by none other then the mighty pimp of bits himself, Kevin from Fire for Effect Games. It has all kinds of forgeworld goofiness packed in there but I've decided that once they're basecoated the best plan would be to go about the army one unit at a time since they're all different types. No spam in sight, nice one Kev. The first up is the 10 man Wraithguard unit.

Here they are after some airbrushing and focus on the bases. The next step will be to glaze in some shadows I couldn't quite get with just the airbrush.

Here they are at the intitial inception.                       

More to come, I'll be chipping away on them for the next couple weeks :)

Finished! Belial Master of the Deathwing

All finished up over the weekend and ready to smash. I really liked what I could do with the Deathwing Command box. My only complaint about the box is the lack of purity seals which isn't much to complain about, just surprising. 

He's off to find a better future on Ebay

Belial, Master of the Deathwing

You've probably seen the Deathwing Knights figures by now. Dammit GW, I love you. As the title suggests I decided to grab the choice parts to make a good looking Belial. If you've seen that sculpt as well you're probably as confused as I am.

Here he is before I ruin him with paint, magnetic options and all :)
