Blind Pew and crew

 Some steps further with the Goblin pirates. Blind Pew and some of the crew. Did put in some humans as well, they're pirates after all, isn't it?

Hope you enjoy them,

Starting an Escher gang

Some time ago, we had seen some nice painted Escher models on the "Tale of Painters" blog. This remembered the great times we had with the Necromunda game and the idea came to start a new campaign. We opened our models-box in search of our old gangs. Looking at them, we concluded that a repaint was absolutely needed and a little bit of conversion. Here's the final result for the first three. Hope you like them.

Back into painting: Horned Raiders / Pillards Cornus

Retour à la peinture... comme promis, voici mes Pillards Cornus pris en photo avec lumière du jour. 

As promised, a few pictures of my horned raiders taken by daylight.


Back into painting: Devourer of Vile-Tis

My next mini on the painting table: another beautiful creature by Rackham.
Getting the hang of it again but... first things first: painting the base coats. As for primary colors, I decided to go for bleached bone, black and brown.

Back into painting: the Horned Raiders finished

This rainy and stormy Saturday gave me the perfect opportunity to finish my horned raiders. I'm looking forward to the coming long winter evenings, as I feel some very beautiful but unpainted minis of ours will finally come to life.

Sorry for the pics having such a yellow effect. I'll make some others by daylight.

Thanks for watching,

Undead Blood Bowl table

I always wanted to make a very specialized tabletop for BloodBowl. The opportunity came with a commission for a graveyard-themed fantasy football field for a necromantic team. The idea was to achieve an abandoned feel with ruined crypts who serve as dug-outs.

I really enjoyed this project, that was filled with a lot of extra details. You'll notice that not everything is glued in place for transport facility. Hope you enjoy as well.

Back into painting: the progress

Far from finished but slowly progressing: the painting of the two horned raiders. My purpose is to have them ready for a game, not to win a painting conquest.

What they still need are a few washes, especially the miniature at the left since I've been overdoing the highlights there a bit. As for the shields, I decided not to go for the red hair like on the Rackham box, since I think it draws too much attention, preferring a more greyish graveyard color.

Although under Thibo's influence (sitting next to me painting his minis for Hybrid), I stubbornly kept faithful to my feeling. He did gave me a few tips here and there. Since he already painted a first horned raider a few years ago, I had to take this into account, so that the three raider models would make a perfect match.

I truly enjoy seeing them come to live. The next miniature on my painting-list is going to be a Rackham Devourer of Vile-Tis.
