This place is dead anyways... WRONG

Hi there.

I decided to resurrect once and for all. Past year has been quite a struggle from the hobby world's view and here I am with my dried paints and petrified brushes... I really enjoyed picking up the tools once more to see that I don't hate this hobby as much as I thought ;)

The coolest mini of all time Dominus has joined my retinue of Mechanicus. Here's a small teaser of him.



I guess this whole CODFISH PARINGS concept needs some serious renovation. Let's see how this starts to roll again.

Mechanicus

Seems like my time for hobbying has reached a certain point when it's hard to start anything new. Luckily the new mechanicus kits gave me something fresh to think about. Here's the starters of a mechanicus posse with some artsy approaches and testosteronic angles!

Gollum 2

Fishy fish chap looks scared. What a poor fella : (









Down here is two comparison photos of this particular critter.

And now something completely Gollum

As a student I usually try to live sparingly but often I lose control and purchase something utterly useless. I found this Gollum statue from an auction (What a magnificent sculpt!) and decided to make him a bit eye-friendly. At the point I do like how he's turning out. There's still a ton of work to do...

 Common Gollum with a fish. Ahh.
 Gollum with serious health issues (and a fish)
Fun fact: I glued some of my own hair to cover this poor fellows baldness.

I really should be doing my thesis...

Nurgle boys finished!





Finishing touches: few highlights and shadings + some washing. Also added gloss varnish over the base's wet parts, as well as to the rims. For some reason I love glossy bases. I also killed an old brush to make the reeds... Overall I think this is crazily messy group - just as I wanted.

The reason for not explaining the exact colors and amount is because I don't know them even myself. Using wet palette gives you the freedom to get goofy with the colors on the palette, but it's incredibly hard to describe how much you use certain ingredients. There's spots of colors all around the palette and mixed up pool of those various shades... This is the way I learnt to use colors - no borders. One big palette with freedom to mix anything with everything.


This defines the joy of painting. There's no right or wrong. Just a WAY to do.
Zen as f*ck.

Nurgle "tutorial"

Lot's of folks have been asking me to make tutorials for working with white primer. Here's a small picture compilation of the past hour or so. Here you can easily see the steps I usually progress with my mini's.



                                     
 White primer. 50% of the work done already...

Some orange and brown ink splashed over the armor. As you can see, I'm not too much into details at the point. 

More color in - some pink and black.

A sepia ink wash over the armor to make the details visible.

White and bleached bone sponged roughly over the armor to bring some damage and highlight.

Tamiya clear yellow over the armor to make the colors pop. Added some shadings to the red and black!


PART 2

Metals in. I used leadbelcher diluted with brown ink.

Shadings. I used al the leftovers I had on my palette at the moment... Black/brown inks for metals. Green/brown for bases. Purple/green for skin.

Highlights. Metals were highlighted with silver, skin got a a white splash. Banner got a jolly little skull on it's surface. Bases were drybrushed with white.

Some layering with bleached bone. Touchups there and there...

Soon to be done. Gave red and brown glazes all over the miniature. Added verdigris.

Phew. Only lenses and some minor details missing.

Hell flute & Sonic warhorn

After a while I made a stop at hobby world.

Last months have been more or less hectic with other real-life stuff - but of course at Christmas I got a furious stomach ache and was not able to get involved with the usual season's celebrations. Stomach ulcer gave me inspiration to chop up some plastic and make some Nurgle guardians to be accompanied with my 'Thug'. I still have 2 FW nurgle torsos to play around with...

So, here I represent you Brother Ulcersån (piper), Admiral Syphillaeys (banner bearer), and Brother Tinnituetus (OMFG BLUNDERBUSS)







This last picture is funny. Here you can see the stage before white primer - There's agrellan earth, liquid GS, static grass, bits and bobs, general junk and  other misc stuff that will be covered in pure white. What a mess at the moment. Mr. Blunderbuss is my top favorite fella of the bunch due his massive blunderbuss. I imagined him to be an "engineer" of sorts. He has a "warhorn" (his own intelligent invention) and ultra heavy foot to anchor in place and burst out a hail of bolt shards, organic mass and junk...  (Of course he is a total idiot with his inventions of massive destructive power - maybe it's the fungi growing inside his helmet - but his brotherhood is also too dim-witted to care)

This project gives me a giggle. Cheers everyone!

Marked Men


My spinoff miniature the Marked Man riding a decaying horse just got 3 fellow characters for his merry group. First I tried to make totally different group without any chaos wibes... But after a while I saw that I can make these miniatures to match the background of the Marked Men and still make them look more Imperial. At the moment I see these characters representing the ever-changing nature of spirit - they are not turned towards chaos, not the servants of Imperium but more like a limbo between those spaces. Let's see which side takes control.





 The idea of falling limbs took control over me - I see these separate heads actually are former heads of the character carrying 'em. The Doctor (painboy) has a tiny servitor on his shoulder and few dead heads hanging around. The Lady has still functioning head in her belly, but I see it's a dying organ. The Boar has three functioning heads - the strapped one is his newest head, the middle one the elder head, and the lowest the soon dying one. As the horse riding marked man carries his fallen limbs around, these characters gave me the idea to mix multiple personalities and generations into one body.

As plants, they grow leaves (limbs) just to drop them some day.
