Ben's #thedailypaint

Postby Midge913 » Mon Jan 30, 2012 2:01 pm

Well caving to peer pressure I will be joining into this Daily painting phenomena. I even joined Twitter, against my better judgement:P, and you can follow my updates @MidgesWorkshop. I am thinking about consolidating all of my WIP threads into this one, but I am not sure about that yet.

Starting off the thread right with things in progress. I am home today with a sick kiddo, so I am working on assembling some Dwarven Hammerers that I just got in, as well as a Scibor Ducal Guard that will be acting as a Champion for the unit.

I will probably painting later on tonight, working on my commission.

Have you done anything with airbrushing on YouTube?

It's funny that it's basically what I went to school for and never do any myself.

Well thanks to the time I had this afternoon I got all of the Hammerers cleaned and assembled. I also got half of the unit based. Tonight however is reserved for commissions where I will be working on those stormblades I have been working on. Hopefully more progress then.

I'll be following this, I really cannot wait to see your minis. This is simply because they're often outstanding.

Hahaha!! I blame you.

Anyway here are the Hammerers that I have been prepping today. I have a tourney coming up and, though I doubt that I will have them painted in time, I wanted to have the models assembled so I can put them on the table.

I also got my Scibor order in. This is the wonderful Ducal Guard #2(i think) scuplt that really just stands out as a unit champion.

Just sitting down to the painting table to work on my Stormblades so hopefully there will be progress on those before the end of the night.

Oh wow, that is one good looking Dwarf. Snow White would totally fall in love with him instead of prince Charming.

Hahaha, sound like the start of a bad porno....... :roll:

Anyhow on the commission front I got some work done on the Stormblades this evening. I only took a picture of one, because I was being lazy, but all of them are up to this point. I still need to go back and add another highlight to the very edges of the armor, but so far I am really happy with them.

Didn't really have much time to paint this evening, between my crazy kids and a wicked back ache and headache. But I finished basing up 4 more converted Redeemers, my Death Company for my Angels of Mourning. Pictures will follow when I get a chance.

Why is there not a pic of a painted dwarf? Don't make me get out my peer pressure again. You know I'll use it.

No time.... No time at all. I really am starting to wish that I had time for some of my own projects, but commissions come first.

Anyhow, I use the time that I have while my midgets are awake to build, convert, and prep stuff. Over the last day or so I have been working on getting these guys ready to go. These are 4 more Redeemers taking my counts-as DC up to 5 models total. In the end I plan on having 10 Redeemers with bolters, 5 with jump packs and various weapons accompanied by Lemartes, a rhino, and a Storm Raven all in the bone scheme of the Redeemers. Anyhow here are the Redeemers as they stand. No idea when I will be getting them under the brush, but they are read to go when I have the time in the que.
