Cannot say they're beautiful, so let's say they're very cool. Great idea & painting. :)

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

Those look awesome! I really like you gritty style.

Thanks, guys. :smile2:

I decided to repaint one of my very old Necrarch vampires from 5'th edition. They have kind of a goofy look to them, but I still find them charming and full of character.







I really should get me one of those light boxes.

It's been a bit since seeing this thread last, and wanted to let you know that those demons back there are excellent.

As are the Bretonnian Ghouls!

Thanks guys. :happy: I have managed to stay productive during the month despite being busy and tired. I have gotten around to paint a couple of more Conan standout minis, a couple of Conan skull pyramids and a group of Warhammer Spirit hosts.

I should look into getting a better camera or something.




I had a lot of fun painting Skuthus the Necromancer. Although he doesn't show up in person in any of the original Conan stories he is supposed to have been one of the formidable ones.




The Grey Man Ape was almost as fun to paint as Skuthus. I decided to give it a dark bluish hide to contrast with its grey fur. I was a bit hesitant about the idea at first, but I'm very happy with how it turned out. The monkey butt was also oddly fun to paint.


I have also painted a Spirit Host for Age of Sigmar. I was not sure how I wanted them to look at first and I didn't want them to look like generic green, blue or grey ghosts. So I settled on giving them a blue base colour that I washed with purple and highlighted with thinned out white. I like the otherworldly look they ended up with.

It's been a bit since seeing this thread last, and wanted to let you know that those demons back there are excellent.

As are the Bretonnian Ghouls!

I'm thinking of maybe touch up a couple of the demons at some point. I really should get around to make more ghouls. I had the itch to make a bunch of zombies by kitbashing with the Warlord Games Landsknechts and Mantic's zombies. I'm thinking of making one zombie for every Empire province of the Old World.

Very cool vamp! I could have a brew with him at the local pub and hear his perspective 😸
I'm sure that he would have some interesting philosophies on a wide selection of subjects after a drink or two. All of them probably being very morbid though, as expected of a Necrarch vampire.

Very nice! Very dirty and dingy.
I do prefer my undead to look like they have been grave robbing or something.

Goofy? These guys are creepy af! :ph34r:
That's my view too. The idea of an undead Bugs Bunny fills me with dread. :ph34r:

Thanks guys. It's been a while since I painted anything, but I just finished painting the titan Enceladus for the ancient Greek mythology game Mythic Battles - Pantheon. It was a remarkably pleasant miniature to paint and I had fun doing the base. This was also my first time doing lava and it was a neat learning experience. :happy:

Actually, awesome doesn’t hit the note. Your colours are so amazing , this looked like it walked out of a film. The lava actually looks like it will burn. How long does it take to achieve this?

I didn't actually keep track of how much time I spent painting Enceladus, but I wanna say maybe 6-8 hours if I also include the base.

I used a white base colour with a thin layer of bright yellow (or a mix of the two) on top and washed it with Citadel's Casandra Yellow until I got the desired tone. I also used the wash on the grey areas around the lava vomit to make it seem like it was emitting a glow. On the flowing lava I made sure to contrasts the yellow with orange and red highlights, and then to top them of I used a conservative amount of dark red mixed with dark grey for the very tips of the flowing lava. I also highlighted the bubbles white. To finish it off it was all washed with Casandra Yellow to create a smooth transition.

I also think the lighting I used when taking the photos helped to bring out the brightness, so I don't think that it would look quite as dramatic on the tabletop. I kinda feel that I got lucky with this one since I mostly went with my guts on how to paint it. Having photo references of lava definitely helped.
