Disciplines of Lugar

Coal black demonic dwarfs smoldering with fire and hatred of their god of bureaucracy.

Still in need of base trimming and varnish.

Summer Is Here And So Is My Motivation

Now that the sun is up most of the time and I've absorbed its energy, I'm itching to get miniatures done!
Below are some bases for my Chaos Dwarfs and a hand for my Treeman. I've also finished three more Lugars already, but only took an embarrassingly bad phone photo. Better picture will soon to follow. Also next up will be at least one Taurukh (Bull Centaur).

Another movement tray is done, and a couple of more detailed bases.
The bases I have now are pretty dull in comparison so I hope I can spice their look with the new ones. Some elevation and more color goes a long way.
Bases - like everything else - are painted as simple as possible: Brown undercoat, Agrellan Earth crackling paint on top, drybrush with Tyran Skull, and wash with Strong Tone, that's it.
The rust is done by lightly brushing Gun Metal over the undercoat, and then applying multiple layers of Modelmates Rust Paint.

The Treeman hand is almost done, just glue the claws and fill the gaps between fingers.

Bits and Bobs and Pics #2

I'm starting to get ready to paint some minis again. Before that, have a small assortment of pictures.

Treeman elbow.

Treeman again.

Treeman knee. (I think I should add an arrow...)

Additional Treeman details. I'm planning of doing a simple mold out of them soon.

Infernal Engine front is pretty much ready.
And this last picture moves.

Bits and Bobs and Pics

Hello again! I've been absent for some time now, and unfortunately I've not get anything ready.

Only things that have seen some progress are random sculpts. I've been taking pictures along the way to share with friends, and now I paste them here in random order.

Shield motif for my Immortals.

Tomb Kings plastic shield that was perfect size for the dwarfs.

Backside WIP.

Skull head for my Infernal Engine.

Trying to get the beard right in Photoshop.

More Infernal Engine.

It will have a voice! 

Bolts and nuts for artillery and such.

Franken-taur made of Mantic lower half, 90's GW upper half, Russian Alternative weapon, and some gray stuff to mask the seams.

Backstabber Hobgoblin. Skaven Plague Monk body and Night Goblin head with self made weapons.

More heads for Hobgoblins.

Photoshopped this guy to run as a candidate for my Kadim Incarnates.

PED Challenge #2

Here's a PED Challenge update.
It's been two weeks since the start, and the only thing I got ready are these five guys, and half of a movement tray. The Gunnery Team got also finished, didn't take a pic though.

From left to right: 2 Hobgoblins, 2 Blunderbuss Warriors, 1 Disciple of Lugar.

This time the "Every Day" aspect didn't go so well. These finished guys are actually made in 9 days instead of 14. So this Challenge might also be going for 3 weeks like the last one.

Hobgoblin hats, movement tray texture, and top right there are few self made daggers ready to be cast as weapons for Backstabbers.

The movement tray has some work put in it too.
I first made a cool texture using cork sheet, molded it, and then cast it with liquid plastic. Then I took a polystyrene sheet and adhered a sheet of rubbery-magnetic sheet on that. Then I cut the cork texture cast to fit the sheets, and painted it like I paint my bases.

About the Hobgoblins: Those are made by combining new Stormvermins and older Goblin parts. I'm also going to equip each one with a hat. Those painted heads came just from a sprue, but I have made some additional ones, as seen above.

I guess this project is all about the hats...

Paint Every Day Challenge 2: Paint harder

Hello again!

Last time I said that I'd take off a week or so from painting, but took a month.
This time I thought to go one week more than last time. Four weeks of painting straight up.
I'll be starting today (monday 23.oct.)

Here are some chosen minis to go with. From top left to right:
Greater Bull with the rider, Regular bull, Lammasu and rider, 3 Anointed Bull Centaurs.
Below them are: Mage lord, Fighty lord, 1 Lugar guy, 2 Hobgoblins, 8 Blunderbussers (and a movement tray!), 3 Warriors, 3 Citadel Guards, 1 weapon team crew that was missing the last time.

I will not finish all of these, and I will build additional minis to be painted as I go. I just wanted to take a random picture to go with my PED#2 update of the stuff I got built.

PED Challenge (0 missed days)

I'm spent. I got pretty much every Chaos Dwarf colored I had glued together. Now I need to take a week or so to just prep more guys to be painted.
I do have some monsters and bigger stuff ready, but am so scared of actually starting them, fearing I'm gonna mess them up somehow (and I've not decided their colors either).

Here's the last thing I got painted. A Gunnery Team, or at least half of it. I've not decided what I'll give the other dwarf to hold on to. The pebble funnel at the top is also still unpainted.
