Happy 2024 everyone! With a new year let’s do a new painting thread! Here you can post all your hobby related achievements!
As we usually create a new topic every so often (usually when the thread goes over 100 contributions), due to loading times and bandwith, we’ll see how long this lasts!
Finally, as the guy who usually creates these threads, my own creations are usually on top. This time, I’m gonna do this different. Let’s start with the last contribution in the previous post, the fleshripper from @FutaManticore
It’s a marvelous paint job, well done! The light box certainly helps!
It’s bothered me for a while what your Ogers remind me of, but I now realise it’s either the Koloss from the Mistborn series of books or Discworld Nac Mac Feegle. Nevertheless, great work and a very striking palette.
The palette came to be after my goblins (which have a similar palette) worked out pretty well. Then, when I decided to build an Ogre Ambush army, I painted two-test models. (see here) and the blue one came out better than the purple one.
Completed my ogre warlock. Really happy with the result. I’m not the best painter but i think this is the best I have done so far. Loads of areas to improve, and I’m sure I’ll spot mistakes the more I look.
My phone didnt want to focus on the whole things at once - my photography needs even more work than my painting!
Work started on my latest batch of Northern Alliance army units, with these nice Frostclaw Riders. When compared to the LOTR Giant Eagle models, they don’t compare, but still, decent models. The one bit i really wasn’t happy with was the connection between rocky outcropings and the Ravenclaw’s backside, so I’ve dug up a couple of scrap uprights of clear uprights for flyers to put a clear space between birds and rocks. Additionally, rather than 2 rocky outcrops jutting up on their own, i cluttered the base up with assorted rocky bits to make the scene more believable. Or at least that is my plan.
Still very much a work in progress, but the Frostclaw Riders are starting to look sweet. I am aiming for a WW2 fighter pilot style for the Dwarf Riders, bundled up in fleece clothes against the bitter cold North winds. I was going to paint the Ice Blade’s hair red instead of blue, then I spotted this great purple and was instantly sold on it for her.
Many thanks @Mikes There is poor enough light this evening, to do them justice, and the well thinned down wash was still a littlewet on the purple, but these Scalecolour acrylics need a wash to seal them in.
