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).

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!

Here are the 24 Reiksguard Knights for the 3000 point Empire force I’m in the middle of:

Kickstarters!

If you haven’t heard about it, check out the Creature Caster Kickstarter as well as the new G&G Ichiban Studio brushes Kickstarter. I’d love to pledge the Creature Caster Kickstarter myself, but I’m not sure I can justify the money right now. I did back the G&G Kickstarter! Also, CMON has another Kickstarter – Dogs of War, and Hangar 18 just started their Pin Ups Kickstarter, which I am probably backing!

Empire Knights cont.

Well I finished the last 8 horses for the 24 Empire Knights:

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!

Empire Archers

Well my airbrush compressor completely burned out, so I’ve been trying to get a replacement quickly. Hopefully the replacement will get here in the next day or two, and hopefully it’ll be as nice as I think it is!

In the mean time, here’s a quick shot of the first group of archers for the 3000 points of Empire I’m painting.

Brawler Bash VII

So I haven’t been able to post as much lately as I’d like, and I thought I should share the reason. I’m a sponsor for this year’s Brawler Bash VII Warhammer Fantasy Grand Tournament in Durham, NC, and I will also be preset at both the GT and the Doubles tournament the preceding Friday. To that end, I’ve been painting models to display (and sell) at the tournament, as well as acquiring the items I will need for my setup at the tournament.

I am providing gift certificates for commission painting that will be used for prizes at the tournament. Also, I will be purchasing used armies for cash!

I will have a 3000 point Empire Army for sale at the tournament as well as its accompanying display board and various other models.

I hope to see you there!
