Mila Kusanagi - Finished Model


At las I managed to finish this project. I hope you like her.

The next model will be a old Azrael for GW's Dark Angel range. I want to practice some textured material and freehand so this will be a new challenge for me :D

Tranzyt and Nemesor - wip pics 1.0

Today I would like to share wth you with wip pics of the two mentioned in the title Necron Lords. As mention earlier these guys will share some of the elements of the original painting. I've already worked on the silver and gold parts. So far only golden parts are finished. Today and tomorrow I'll work on silvers. Sinister look is my aim.

Final WIP Chaos Space Marine Lord

I welcome you after a break caused by the indisposition of my eye. Unfortunately, this caused a delay in painting my Lord of Chaos and now I can only show WIP. I hope that next week I can finish painting the model.

Firestorm armada- first look on Sorylian starterbox

today I'll show you some pics showing contents of starter box for Sorylian collective. This is one of basic races in "Firestorm Armada"- a spaceship wargame by British company Spartan Games.
First of all, short introduction into game mechanics. All systems created by Spartan Games are very similar and easy to learn. They rely on number of six-sided dice. Weapons, shields and ship crew characteristics show how many dice you have to throw during the test. In most cases result of 4+ means success. Some effects can influence your throws, for example shooting through gas clouds gives -1 penalty to throws (instead of 4+ you need a 5+), shooting through bigger meteor fields halves the number of your dices, etc.
Players activate their squadrons in alternate order, meaning that the first player moves, fires and takes whatever actions with his one squadron, then the second player does so, and so on until all squadrons were activated- after that another turn starts.
For more detailed information about game rules feel free to read .pdf rulebook available on the PRODUCERS WEBSITE.
Ok, now to the mentioned starter- Sorylians are giant space lizards! (how awesome is that?). They are higher than men, muscled and wear scales! Although from natural behavior they're very cautious and peaceful, their ships are very fast and maneuverable. Thanks to highs speed ships, and big bodies of their warriors, they make very good boardings of enemy vessels. Most of their weapons are very deadly at close ranges.
In the box, you will find 10 ships- one big battleship (14 cm length), 3 cruisers (9.2 cm each) and 6 frigates (5.8 cm), some paper tokens, assembly guide and ship characteristics.
Tokens and characteristics were printed on good, thick shiny paper. There's not much to tell about them, they look nice and won't get damaged easily.
Flight pegs for ships are made of transparent plastic. It looks quite nice, but unfortunately sticks weren't made with sufficient precise- their diameters vary a bit from each other and from holes in the bottom of ships. I had some problems with putting them in bases and in models. Drilling bigger holes won't make anything better, because you will have big clearance and model won't be stable. As I talked with friends who bought other races, they all had the same problem in their boxes.

Finally the main part of the starter- models.
Hull of each ship was made from good quality resin and engines from well known metal. Cast is very nice and all, even finest, details were carefully shown on the models. Most of things fit together well. Below you can see comparison of all ships with GW high elf.
Unfortunately I got wry battleship and one frigate. All models, except those 2, were straight and without any flaws. Those faulty models were highly curved (I can't show you how did they look, because I took pictures after I repaired them). I had to put them in boiling water and carefully straighten them- it took some time, but it repaid.
More models:


Despite few downsides I'm contented I bought that box. The game is fun, models after some work look really nice and lets be honest... space lizards rock!!
Hope I helped someone with this short "review" and thanks for reading,

Quality Matters


It will take me some time to clean and prepare Necron hereos. Below you can see 'progress' of the two (from three) models, on which I've applied a lot of liquid green stuff. I must admit that I'm "happy" having these models in Finecast. Quality matters. Actually looking at my entire collection these models have the worse quality of all of my models. Rest of the necron hereos look much more better. As for the big plan, I'm hoping to finish cleaning these guys today. As for the painting scheme I'll use as a basis the original ones. Stay tuned for more.

Mila Kusanagi - final WIP


I haven had time to finish this project but slowly I'm getting closer to the finish.

There are still some things to do but I think I need about five hours of painting to finish her and then the base. from the last time I managed to paint the silver NMM pieces. If you have any suggestions feel free to comment.

Painted Necron Warriors


It took me a long time to finish these guys but I've finally made it. Not one, not two but 14 Necron Warriors are painted to the table top standard. Adding these pics to the blog I've realised that I've forgoten to add leakse here and there. I'll do this tomorrow. Looking at the whole army I've painted so far 65 models, only 35 more to the end (13 Warriors, 10 Immortals with tesla, 3 barges and heroes). Not so bad. ;) 14 models at-once was my first attempt with more models then 10. Actually it wasn't a good idea. At the end I was bored. For that reason my next aim is to paint three lords: Trazyn the Infinite, Nemesor Zahndrekh, Anrakyr the Traveller. Models are cleaned and waiting for assembly and refilling holes with liquid green stuff. Failcast quality of two of them is really bad. Expect more pics in near future.

I've also repaint on of the blade elements on my Vargard Obyron. There was a gold element near the sphere. I thought that silver will suit better. Hope you like it.

Now I'm going back to the necronish tomb. Till next time.

Scibor Marine second wip


Second wip photos of my Scibor Marine. This time I finished his base, which I must say was one of my favorite parts of this miniature:) Really cool sculpting here by Scibor. Also, I started to work on the armor.
Still a lot to be done:)

WIP Chaos Space Marine Lord

This time I will show you WIP Chaos Space Marine Lord on which, currently working on. For now focused on coat where I try my best on first Freehands.
I admit that it is not a simple art and requires a lot of practice, but it gives a lot of satisfaction and it really changed the model forbetter.
So I think that it is worth working on this art, and I have such an intention.
Here are pictures of my struggle with Freehands.

I know this is not ideal but I had to try.
