Workbench, January 8, 2006

Well, here's another week! I'm still working on the Black Orc unit; I got lots of work done at the painter's club meeting at The Source. Now I just have to give that armor more depth and grunge. I also started on Steve Buddle's Dot from the Land of zO project.

Happy New Year, 2006, and here's my workbench!

My workbench for the week of January 1, 2006. Happy New Year!!

Heresy Thrud and last week's Citidel Thrud both ended up in the stripping jar. I just wasn't happy with my progress on them; the skin had way too much contrast. So, here we see Heresy Miniatures Santa Boris, another Citidel Thrud, and the resumption of work on the original Heresy Mullet the Barbarian.

Workbench, December 25, 2005

My workbench for the week of December 25, 2005. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, celebrate whatever makes you happy this time of year!

Here we see Heresy Miniatures Limited Edition Strolling Thrud, and a vintage Citidel Miniatures Thrud, both destined for the Thrud Gallery.

Workbench, December 18, 2005

My workbench for the week of December 18, 2005. This was a bit of a tough week, paintwise. The ugly goat-faced Thrud's Admirer ended up in the stripping jar. I need to get some practice on female flesh tones, and this is a poor miniature to begin with.

Workbench for the week of December 11, 2005

My workbench for the week of December 11, 2005. Continuing in the attempt to paint one individual/character/monster/whatever miniature each week, I did finish Urkmon and started on Thrud's Admirer in a little more earnest. What an ugly goat-faced little one that is, too!

Workbench, December 4, 2005

My workbench for the week of December 4, 2005. I'm trying to paint one individual/character/monster/whatever miniature each week, and one wargames regiment each week. For this week, I have Urkmon, another Mike Thorpe creation, and a unit of Chaos Marauder Horsemen. The horsemen might take two weeks, one for the horses and one for the riders.

Workbench, November 27, 2005

My workbench for the week of November 27, 2005. Back to painting, woohoo!
Here we see the new Heresy Miniatures Werewolf, affectionately named "Luke."
Behind Luke is a regiment of Warhammer Chaos Warhounds. I decided I'd keep it simple and paint them the same way I painted the werewolf.

Workbench, August 14, 2005

My workbench for the week of August 14, 2005. The theme is "paint the painter." First up, you see the Foundry limited edition "The Artist," and the Steve Buddle CMON Amazon. I've removed the blade head from her glaive and replaced it with a tail from the Kislevites accessories sprue to give her a big fat paintbrush. Her shield will become a pallette. Clever?

Workbench, June 26, 2005

My workbench for the week of June 26, 2005. There's Mullet, a little further along with some color in the torch light. I'm still a little worried about getting it right. The sorceress is still in the works. I picked up that frenzied-mob Mordheim guy, to do a little more practice on light source highlighting.

Workbench, June 19, 2005

My workbench for the week of June 19, 2005. Yes, that's a gang of Thruds.
I'm just not having luck painting these guys! There are some surfaces, especially on the Thrud to the far right, that just don't seem to accept paint. These guys are now in the stripping jar.
