Once again it’s #wipwednesday so here’s another model from my workbench, the characterful Darkoath Chieftain.
A lone figure stares out into an ocean so dark that it merges with the night sky – an inky, inexorable void. Somewhere in that vastness lurk his Deepkin masters and soon enough they will call upon him once more to do their bidding.
Those that walk the Path to Glory seek immortal power from their mercurial master. Yet the will of Tzeentch is capricious and his Path is strewn with The Lost and The Damned.
Greetings Arcanites! As it’s #WorkInProgressWednesday on the webz I thought I’d share some of the current miniatures on my work bench.
Resplendent in the finery of a bygone age, Black Knights are a decaying mockery of once noble templars. Now these baleful revenants are consumed with loathing for those who’s hearts still beat within their chest.
Quick post today guys, it’s been really busy again lately! Here are some more of Tim’s impressive collection of John Blanche inspired undead. This time we’ve got the first part of a unit of Black Knights. Continue reading
Ghastly shrieks and guttural howls come from deep within the necropolis. The charnel stench of open graves belies the presence of the corpse-eaters. Surely, to venture further through these forsaken crypts would be to consign oneself to eternal residence amongst the silent, desecrated dead…
Just a quick blog post today to show you some work on the first of a unit of Age of Sigmar Crypt Horrors I’ve been working on. Continue reading
Here we stand on the brink of a golden dawn. In a universe of ancient tyrants, the destiny of our birthright burns unstoppably like a newborn sun. Illuminated by the Greater Good we shall blaze a shining path through the darkness.
In stark contrast to the grim darkness of the far future I love the naive optimism of the Tau. Having coveted them for a while, when the new releases came out I couldn’t help but jump on the band wagon and pick up some kits for a new project! Continue reading
Clunking out of the abyss lumbers an automaton of the Cog Empire.
Well this is exciting! Here at Technasma we’re amongst the first people in the world to own this miniature. I was lucky enough to be sent a 3D printed prototype of this World of Rivals: Masters of the Deep miniature by entering a competition via their Instagram.
As a rapid prototype, it’s a little rough around the edges, but undeniably an awesome mini. This week I’ll be breaking out the file and putty to get this guy ready for painting. The models themselves are quite large (see shot below for reference with a £1 coin) and present an interesting challenge to paint.
The Masters of the Deep miniatures have a cartoon style to them with lots of smooth curves and flat surfaces. Some of the characters have a chibi-vibe with big heads and exaggerated proportions. Coolest of all is the game’s nautical Steampunk art direction!
Keep posted to see how I paint up this mini. I’m currently deliberating whether to go for full brass with steampunk metallics, Non-Metallic Metal or try a more cell-shades look like the Necrons we’ve done…
You can see more about World of Rivals via their Instagram and be sure to check out their relaunched Kickstarter that goes live tomorrow!
Thundering out of the Chaos Wastes on roughshod hooves ride two mighty champions of Tzeentch!
Here’s a work in progress on my unit of Chaos Knights. I decided to go to town with these guys and try some new painting techniques to convey the eldritch glow of their Ensorcelled Weapons and Marks of Tzeentch. I referred to the excellent tutorial by Garfy on Tale of Painters to get the glowing NMM style I wanted.
The Standard Bearer is a personal favourite of mine. Once again I used a bright magenta to mark out the command group models and used a converted icon of Tzeentch from a 40K Chaos Space Marine kit. To paint the War Steed I blocked in the skin areas with Charandon Granite and washed it back with Drakenhof Nightshade. Mid tones were picked out in the base colour and then hightlighted with glazes of Stormvermin Fur followed by a thin edge highlight of Baneblade Brown. The longer hair was highlighted with Rackarth Flesh and Pallid Wych Flesh instead.
