Angels and Demons…

*Mini update*

It that time of year when things go bump in the dark (no not me walking around my house) so I painted up Saint Peter from Purgatory miniatures and started working on Azaroth the Fallen from Heresy miniatures

Trying to paint Gems…

Do not be alarmed. Yes it’s a long, long overdue post from me ( real life, blah, blah, blah).

Recently Games Workshop released some new technical paints specifically for gemstones,

  • Soulstone Blue
  • Waystone Green
  • Spiritstone Red
  • Stormhost Silver

https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Gems-Paint-Bundle

so I thought I’d give them a try. Now I don’t have many minis that have gems on them, so I used some Space Marine shoulder pads…

I started with an even layer of silver over a black undercoat

then I went straight in with the gem paints

they’re a little thicker than the Tamiya clears I’m used to, and not really suited to shoulder pads, but the coverage is good. they look a little streaky to my eyes but with some practice I’ll be able to get a more even coat. Again the Shoulder pads are not the intended use here but they’d be great on Rank and File Eldar or Elves and Eye lenses on helmets. I personally wouldn’t use them on centre piece minis, but I want to see if my other half will let me test them out on one of her Elves.

All in all, if you want gems done fast these will do the job. I’m going to try them through the airbrush later and update things here.

That’s all for now, back to the workshop

Me being me I tried layering one over the other… it sort of worked20160619_003750

a little more experimentation is needed.

 

A little yellow demon

I found a Heresy miniatures Minor Fallen One in the bitzbox. It took about 3 hours from start to finish, minimal mould lines ( 2, 1 on the scythe and 1 on the sword which I didn’t use) quality control that puts the “big boys” to shame.

Not the best pics I know but the ideas there.

Things! Excitement! Content!

Yes really content (ok maybe not excitement), in between the constant battle against “real-life” I managed to get in some painting time. I’ve base coated about 500 points(I think) of Imperial Fists , 25ish points of Cygnar and a few other random pieces.ย Here’s a teaser for the Imperial FIsts
