Kevin's Showcase and Painting Thread - Updated Terrain Set Ups!

Recommended Posts

Kevin    41

Hey guys, new forum, new thread. This will be my only thread for showcasing (for now) going forward.

To start it off, here is the eldar I finished last week for the Barrie Bash (2 FW hornets, and 12 Black Guardian Windrider Jetbikes). I learnt a lot from painting these guys, masking was one of those thing which I feel worked out well for the most part. One thing I still need to work on is my line highlighting, while where there is an edge to follow I can do an ok job, when it is freehanded it is just horrendous (as shown in the pictures below with the masked off parts). Regardless here are the photos, let me know what you think!

Hey guys, this is my resolution post. My resolution is to not buy another model until my backlog is finished.

This is my backlog:

DSC00111.thumb.JPG.458a4504dd68f36d9d5601682e02d479.JPG

Here is the list of stuff:

Salamanders:

- 9 Drop Pods

- 1 Landraider

- 8 Tank Turrets

- 2 Stormhawk Interceptors

- 1 Javelin Landspeeder

Eldar/Dark Eldar:

- 6 Reaver Jet Bikes

- 2 Venoms

- 1 Lynx

- 1 Hornet

- 1 Warp Hunter

- 1 Farseer on Jetbike

- 1 Spiritseer

Imperial Agents:

- 3 Wyverns (repaint)

- 2 Chimeras (repaint)

- 2 Razorbacks/Rhinos (repaint)

So there you go a big ol list of stuff that I have to complete. I am open to anyone for painting challenges and what have you, I need all the motivation I can get. I will update this thread with my progress, maybe I can inspire other to take the challenge with me. No more models until what you have is finished!

Hey guys, I thought I would share the progress on my Blood Bowl Ogre team! This was completely painted by me, I tried to go for a higher than table top standard. As the team stands it included 6x Ogres (5 oop metal, 1 new plastic) and 1 Goblin/Snotling (oop metal). I plan on adding 9 more snotlings/goblins and some staff models but the models are hard to find as I want GW blood bowl specific models which means oop metal and expensive. But anyway here are the pics, I painted the OOP metal guys about 3 months ago, and the plastic Ogre on Saturday. I feel the skin and blue cloth turned out much better on the new Ogre compared to the ones I painted 3 months ago, which shows progress! Regardless I would appreciate and comments or suggestions you have. I am really trying to up my painting skill level.

 

Whole Team:

Hey guys, I have finished my wood elf display board for Adepticon. All that is left to do for the army is paint all the rims of the models bases and make 2 objective markers. After that I am finished all the model prep I have for Adepticon. For the board, the water effect was just poured and needs to dry, I fear I did not mix it enough which means I might have to scrape the current stuff out and remix a batch, but that will be tomorrow's work if needed. As always let me know what you think, I tried to use a bunch of different mediums with this board, and break free from how I normally do them. I think it came out well!

Got some work done! I did the bases for a Brettonnia army. This was my army but I am trying to cut back on some armies so this was sold to Terran. As part of the deal I am gonna base the whole army eventually. What you see below is models he needed for a tournament this weekend, there is about another 2-3x as many guys left to base as shown. I went for a dead lands/war-torn land with dead grass and what have ya. This army came painted as it is, but was on squares, all I am doing is putting them on circles and then completing the basing.

Hey guys here are the current updates I have for you. This time I have the following:

- Skullvane Manse (Painted by @Deademperor)

- Grandmaster Voldus (Painted by @marcuss)

- Dark Elf Fleetmaster (used as a Dark Eldar Llahmean, painted by me)

- 9 Reaver Jet Bikes (painted by me)

For the stuff I painted, the new brush sets (Games and Gear) we got totally changed the game for my line highlighting, while it still needs much work it is re-markedly better then my last attempts. Also the Fleet Master is the first character model I have ever done and I am quite happy with the results. As always comments and constructive criticism are welcome!

Skulvane Manse:

Hey guys, we got another model in. This time it is a Mastodon painted by Battle Brothers Studio. It is painted in Irvin's Horus Heresy Space Wolf scheme that he is slowing building into. Adam (the painter) did the building/magnetizing and painting, all I did was snap some photos.

That paint chipping is my favourite feature, by far. It looks so sharp, but the tracks don't seem to have the same level of care :(

 

I'd love to blow that thing up.
