Welcome back!

This post we continue to look at the boxed game from Games Workshop, Gorechosen!

Lets continue:

Redary Bloodfane

Vexnar the Reaper

These were a blast to paint up individually.

Hope you enjoyed taking a look. I will return next week with a new post, but we will have to wait until then to see what it is. Until next time!


Welcome back!

Following up from previous posts involving some Games Workshop Khorne, this update we will look at the standalone box game Gorechosen from Games Workshop. Not only is this a brutal 1v1v1v1 boardgame, but the 4 different figures can be used for you Khorne army as well!

Lets get started!

Heldrax Goretouched

Kore Hammerskull

Painted to match the rest of my Khorne, but also to stand out a bit as individual heroes for the Gorechosen. Their bases were done in the same GW Technical paint Martian Ironearth.

Next post we will look at the other 2 members of this boxed game. Until then!

Arena Rex: Otho

Welcome back!

This week I have a real treat. A few years ago (ok 7 years from this posting) Spartacus was released. An epic show with gladiator combat from Roman history, defiantly NSFW. Aside from the nudity, gratuitous violence, and awesome plot lines that show introduced some great characters in the gladiatorial age.

 Fast forward a few years and a small company named Red Republic Games unleashes a Kickstarter project named Arena Rex. Loving the art and the sculpts, I backed the project at a small level just for a taste. Today I am going to share a personal project of one of these gladiators, Otho Mentulus from the Ludus Magnus faction.

Otho Mentulus
 First, I would like to point out he is resin, like all Arena Rex miniatures. Some of them come with metal bits that are too risky for resin (spears and staves). The base you see also comes with all Arena Rex figures (minus the sand, added that myself).

 I wanted to go for a non-metallic look for his armor and shield, and that took quite a bit of practice and patience. One of the trickiest things to have done for me, but worth it in the end.

 Otho's skin was also a step up from what I am used to, but with help from fellow guides, I was able to get the color I wanted to achieve. A lot of work went into getting those colors just right.

 The sand was done using basic small grain grit and painting to a color to represent sand. Using a spare foot, I "stepped" in place where others may have walked before, and did a light black wash for his shadow in the sand.

And there you have Otho Mentulus of the Ludus Magnus from Arena Rex.

This guy was such a blast to paint. Although the hours put in were long, and at times I wanted to give up I am glad I didnt. I still have the others to paint, but until I get more free time I dont see that happening soon.

I hope you enjoyed this special look into one of my personal collection, and thanks for reading.

Until next time!

DOOMshaper 3

Welcome back reader!

I decided to add another post today, to make up for the past 2 weeks missing. Life gets busy this time of year, and some things fall by the wayside.

This post we will look at a warcaster for the Trollbloods from Hordes, a tabletop wargame from Privateer Press. His name is Doomshaper, and this is his third incarnation. The commission was to do a fast and cheap paint job, and that is what we will be looking at today.

Simple paint job, yet effective. These will probably be few and far between now, with Privateer Press commissions as most of the local players have moved onto Age of Sigmar from Games Workshop. Although I do have some of my own models to get done, eventually but not any time soon.

Hope you enjoyed looking, Until Next Time!

Trollin the Swamp

Hello everybody!

Im back this week with another update. A commission piece I did back last year (one of the few left). This one was for a local player, who wanted a fast and cheap paint job for a Troll warbeast from Hordes tabletop game by Privateer Press.

Dozer & Smig

Basic colors, and a quick paint job gets it done. And this post too, that was quick!

Until next time!

Khorne Slaughterpriest

Welcome back readers, lookers, and all around everyone else.

So last week we took a look at some Khorne Bloodbound models from Games Workshop's release of the Storm of Sigmar mini starter box. This week, we will take a gander into a leader I picked up for this mini force the Slaughterpriest with Hackblade and Wrath hammer.

Now I did pick up this model originally just to paint because he looked so cool, but after doing the other models i decided to add him to the team as a leader.  Although until I paint up the other Khorne from the full Age of Sigmar starter box set, he will stand in for them. I said before how my army of choice is the Stormcast Eternals, so I must paint them up first. These are just a distraction, a fun one at that.

So lets get looking!

Khorne Slaughterpriest with Hackblade and Wrath Hammer

Now he was modified a bit. Originally his left foot was standing on a monster skull, but I didnt think it fit properly, so I cut that off and replaced it with cork painted to look like the red rock of the lands they are from. You may also notice a lack of blood splatter on his weapons, but I opted out of that effect for this particular model, not sure why, but I wanted a 'before battle' look to him.

Hope you enjoyed looking. I will see what else I can come up with for next post, I believe its back to more commissions. Until next time!

Storm of Khorne pt2

Welcome back readers!

Continuing on from last post earlier in the week, we will take a gander into the second half of the Khorne part of the Storm of Sigmar, the Khorne Blood Warriors. Now only 3 came in the box, but as the previous Bloodbound they painted up quick and I enjoyed them very much. Lets take a look!

Khorne Blood Warriors

The blood on their weapons were an additional effect using Games Workshop technical paint, 'Blood for the Blood God'. It provided a nice touch in the end showing their ferocity on the field.

Now all they need is a leader...next post we will take a gander on the Slaughterpriest i picked up to add to the team. Until next time!
