The 5th one...

I've finally finished the 5th harlequin. Now there's only troupe master left. I've already started the conversion, will show you some pics in a few days.

I also wanted to show you a few wip pics of a miniature painted by my young padawan (actually he's the same age as me but it sounds cool). It's his second miniature painted after 5 years of break. And also his 10 or sth miniature in his life.

Tell me what you think!

Urien Rakarth painting log - part two


Yesterday I couldn't stop myself painting Urien. I know I should turn my attention to dreadnought but last painting was so enjoyable that I knew I'll finish this guy earlier.

So far I've painted tabard and almost all of the silver elements. Today will be my third attempt on painting venom blade. I'm not and wasn't satisfied with former and current painting. Tabard was painted with Tallarn Flesh foundation paint, shaded with Green and leviatan washes, highlighted with Fortress Grey, Bleached Bone and Skull White.

Today I'll correct blade and work on Urien's skin. Ill stay within purple - grey palette.

Till next time,

Demonic painting - Demon Prince WIP


I bought this model a year ago as a part of my Warriors of Chaos army. I wanted to paint him because I liked this model very much but I haven't had time to start working on him but now is the time to do it.

I decided that I will paint him in non standard colors as I wanted him to be a undivided demon so he could be used in different armies. The skin was painted with a mix of camo green, valejjo heavy purple and belched bone. This mix resulted in a yellow gold like skin as you can see.

Tomorrow I will start to paint other details so he will gain some other colors.


Urien Rakarth painting log - part one


As planned before, yestarday I've started to paint Urien Rakarth. So far I'ce done only coat... or more likely dress. Rather to go in purples I've decided to go in leather direction. Snakebite Leather paint was used as a base for his dress. I paint shadows with mixture od Snakebite and Asurmen Blue wash. Then I've applied watered down Liche Purple paint in some areas.

Watered down Snakebite and Skull White mixture was applied as highlight. Top highlight I've achieved using Skull White paint.

Overall I'm satisfied with choosen colors. I've to make some corrections on the Urien's front side. So next time I'll start with it and then paint his chest bony armour.

Till next time,

Dreadnought painting log - part one


As mention before this week I'll paint two models at once. Yestarday I have paint a little bit my regular BA Dreadnought. As a base I've choosen Mechrite Red. Then Scab Red was applied on the whole machine. Next, using an airbrush I've paint from above Blood Red paint, Skull White paint and on the end again Blood Red. I'm not in 100% happy about end result, but I'll paint it till end like this.

Next step is shading. I've choosen to make a watered dawn mixture of Scab Red and Regal Blue. Generally it looks fine, but in some areas I'll have to make some corrections. I didn't attach all of the parts but I'm going to paint almost all available weapon options for my dreadnought. So it will take a little bit (hopefully two or three days) to finish shading the whole model's armour. Next I'll make highlights and this will be made around weekend.

So far you've seen very boring pics. Today I'll start with Urien, so expect more interessting pics tomorrow.

Till next time,

Nork Deddog - last shoots


I finally finished this bulky ogryn. Few pics below, more on my CMON gallery. You can even vote there. ;) I've also put him ebay, so if anyone would like to have it in his or her collection/army, here's the link: Nork Deddog on ebay.

Next on the painting table I'll have two models. Blood Angels Dreadnought (with some weapon options) and Dark Eldar classic model of the Urien Rakarth. With the last one I'll experiment a little bit. So don't expect regular gw's painting scheme.

Till next time,

Ps: I'm considering to purchase Forge World's Contemptor Dreadnought and paint it in Blood Angels color scheme. What do you think about that? ;)

So my job is almost done. I've to repaint three elements (skulls, belt and nose) and Nork Deddog will be finished. So far it was a great pleasure to paint bigger guardsman. I think I'll try to add a tatoo or two on Nork's skin. If you got any questions or comments, please add them below.
