Switchblade's WIP ( Beware! Pic HEAVY)

Post by Switchblade » Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:00 am

Hey everybody, I figured it was about time I got around to starting one of these. Some of you have already seen my work in the Deathmatch and MotM sections, but here is a place for me to ramble on and post what I've been up to, especially since I ALWAYS forget to post in the Painting Pledge. Kinda makes me wish I could have a bot do it for me, since I paint at least 3 days a week.

Here goes, my most current project.

Mulg the Ancient: Privateer Press

You'll have to pardon the dirty towel, I hate putting pewter minis on hard surfaces as they chip paint in less than a nanosecond.

Other completed projects!

I really like the tau. They have that battleworn feel.

I really dislike the brand new almost tron like look of most tau, so I decided to take it to the other extreme. I commonly tell people that my tau were dug up by jawas.

Soon as I finish basing all the rest, about 2k points worth) I'll be putting up some groups shots, the crisis suits and hammerhead/devilfish look the best IMO.

Mulg the Ancient, just waiting on a replacement base to be shipped, as somehow I lost the original. Oh well

Island of Blood High Elf Mage for Deathmatch, still need to clean up a few spots, but you get the general idea.

I like Mulg, I don't play fantasy (or whatever game he comes from), but looks like something that has been in a cave way too long.

Haha, he's from Warmachine by Privateer Press. They make gorgeous models, but I have sworn off pewter for a long time now. Spend 3x time fixing him than actually painting him. This is after I sealed him six times and cleaned the pewter, etc. Very irritating.

Sure he isn't from Hordes? I like their warjacks, but like you, I just am tired of metal.

One of the wonderful things about being a Contract Painter at my LGS, I get to work on ALOT of different Minis. Now that the holidays are over, I'll be back to painting every day, and posting as much as I can.

Spend most of yesterday doing this, getting high-quality photos (finally done with the Iphone camera!) of most of my completed work. About time!!


So, some of my other stuff. These Rat Ogres are a bit old, from a Deathmatch a few months ago.
