GW Mounted Empire BSB done!

I started this model a while back, but hadn’t gotten to finish him and take pictures until now. Here he is! I really enjoyed certain parts of him, such as the ribbon and the gold, and I really wish that I had been able to put more time into him, but that was not possible at a Standard+ Level.

Post-Brawler Bash

I had a SUPER busy weekend at Brawler Bash VII. I met a ton of super-nice people, and hopefully I will get the opportunity to do some projects for some of them. Also, I can’t wait to see what projects the recipients of the $50 gift certifcates want me to do for them.

In the coming weeks I will be posting about a Lizardmen project including two skink characters and some skirmishing movement trays. I’m also going to finish an Empire mounted BSB I’ve been working on. After that, I’m switching over to some 40K for a while starting with some Dark Angels! Hopefully I will also be able to squeeze in a few Reaper Bones models along the way.

Finished Empire Wizards and Company Master!

Well I finished the Empire Wizards and Company Master. Here’s the photos! Remember, these are part of a 2500-3000 point Empire army I’m painting that will be for sale when it’s done.

WIP: Empire Battle Wizards

I’ve had a lot of stuff happen in the last week or so that really disrupted my painting time, and then the deadline on the Empire Army project moved back, so some Ogres jumped up in line. Because of all that, I’ve pretty much just been working on the Empire Battle Wizards a little here and a little there. Here’s where they stand:

purple 1 front

purple 1 back

yellow 1 front

yellow 1 back

 

Over the next two weeks I will finish the wizards, finish the master engineer, paint an Ogre Ironblaster, and paint one to two more Ogre models (non-troops).

More finished Empire stuff!

Just a reminder, this Empire army will be for sale upon completion. Also, sometime in the next couple weeks I intend to do a few tutorials about blending!

WIP: Empire Master Engineer

Just a quick post here. I’m painting all day at my FLGS – a very rare thing for me to get this much time in a solid block like this, so I’m going to try to be as productive as possible.  Here’s a shot of the WIP Empire Master Engineer. I had some fun with his face.

OnceBitten 360 Youtube

I know I’ve mentioned his channel before, but a guy local to me has a great YouTube channel for Warhammer Fantasy battle reports – OnceBitten360. Please check it out. He does a really good job with his battle reports, and there are a ton of them!

Recently, I painted some banners for him. You can see them in this battle report –¬†http://youtu.be/FxpgDkYtZSo!

I think the white horses are my favorite. And just in case you ever wondered what a horde of cavalry looks like:

I should have the 24 riders done sometime in the next few days as well as a pair of Pathfinder Red Dragons, one of which will be for sale!
