House Delaque

It's been a few months and I've successfully avoided posting anything on my blog, so I think it's time to rectify that.  I've been busy the last 3 weeks prepping for Adepticon.  I believe I also made a promise last year that I would try and paint at least one Necromunda gang a year until I have every gang painted up.  So my entry for 2018 will be House Delaque.

I picked these guys up a few years back from a bin in the Toledo Game Room at Adepticon.  They were in pretty bad shape when I got them.

A little Simple Green and a new paint job along with some Elrik's Hobbies bases have got them looking pretty good I think.  I'm very pleased at how they turned out.  I really enjoy painting these classic Necromunda models.  There's just something about that early 90's style coupled with a good paint job really tugs on the nostalgia factor.  Anyway, I'm out and hopefully will be back in a few weeks with another update.

The Wizard and the Genie

So what do we have here?  More miniatures?  My goodness, lets take a look...

So these two are not from the official "Northstar Frostgrave" line.  I believe these are from Gorgon Studios, which are the same guys who run Adepticon.  I got these two for free for playing in multiple Frostgrave events at Adepticon earlier this year.  I think they paint up pretty good and now I have a generic wizard and apprentice to use for Frostgrave games.

And for our double feature, we got a Genie and his lamp...

I got bored of painting Germans one night, and so I grabbed this dude and splashed some blue on him.  He's nothing fantastic, but I got to play with my Reaper violet triad colors for the first time.

That'll be it for now...

Damn Dirty Cultists

Lets jump back into some Frostgrave for a little while.  I've had these guys floating around on my desk for some time now.  The other day, I was thinking "Hmmm, I wonder what they'd look like with some paint on them?".  I grabed a few of my favorite looking models and thus this is how we got to this point.  Lets take a look.

Holy shit, a new background?  Yup, I'm pulling no punches here.  Getting back on a serious note, these guys were just my first 5 test models as I wanted to try different paint schemes on each model.  To be perfectly honest, I'm not crazy about any of the schemes.  I do like the red, but I'm not sure if I want to commit the rest of my plastics to it.  I still have another 50 cultists models to tinker around with, so we'll see what I decide.  I'll probably just end up making a rag-tag group with all different colors like I usually do.  Thanks for looking.

Some more vehicles for Bolt Action

Up next we got some vehicles that I painted last year for Operation Sting.  Again, I never got around to posting anything involving them, so I'm rectifying that.  I believe both models are resin.  The Kubelwagen has some metal parts to it, but is primarily resin.

So up first we have my Panzer III model.

I really like the look of this tank.  This is one of my favorite models I've done for Bolt Action and was a lot of fun to paint.  I think it came out really good and I'm very happy with it.

Up next we got my Kubelwagen, lets take a look....

This model kit was a pain in the ass to build.  Lots of little fiddly bits and if you know anything about Warlord games, they're not the best with directions on they're resin models.  I think I glued my hands to this model like 5 times.  Painting wise, it came together pretty well.  I'm happy with how it turned out.  Trying to paint the driver was a bit tricky.  I also would've liked it if they would've given me a glass or something in the kit to put in for the windshield instead of having a blank space.  Sure, I could put together something, but I'm not going to.

That's it for today, thanks for checking it out.

Weird Science!!!

In keeping up with my backlog of photos of miniatures I've painted that I said I was going to post, I present you today with some photos of monsters I did for my German Konflikt 47' army.

Up first, we have 4 of my "Nachjager".  I'm not sure what a "Nachjager" is, but they kind of remind me of the main monster in the movie Pan.  You know, the dude with the eyes in his hands.  Anyway, here they are....

They were pretty interesting to paint.  A lot of dry brushing and glazing to get the transitions to look good.  I went a little heavier than I wanted to go with the blood, but I think they look pretty cool.  They're also a terror to behold on the battlefield.  My only issue with these models is there are only two poses.  I think at least one more pose would've been nice.  I do dig the head with part of the spine in the one pose.

Next we have my German Werewolves which are called Schreckwulfen.  I thought the models looked pretty cool, so I painted up two blister packs.  Here's what I got...

I kind of did my own thing with these guys.  I didn't want them to all look the same, so I broke them up into 3 groups of 2 and tackled the unit that way.  It was fun to paint different types of colors for skin tones that you normally don't paint as skin.  I'm also pretty sure the same guy sculpted both the Schreckwulfen and the Nachjagers based on the feet.  Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed the photos.
