Green Stuff Ranger Wip 3

Posted by Hitmonkey , in Sculpting/Converting 10 November 2012 - - - - - - · 1,103 views

Sculpting is awesome! I love it!
Did the head today, no ears or hair yet though, I want the gs to cure before proceeding. I also converted an axe and a crossbow from a plastic dwarf box (actually just made them a bit smaller, trying to fit them to marauder size). Weirdly enough I find it easier to sculpt eyes than painting them. The brush is too...


Green Stuff Ranger Wip 2

Here I am, spamming away mith minuscule progress. I sculpted some stubby little legs for this guy today. Bare feet and shorts for this hippie ranger because that´s what you´re supposed to wear in the...

green stuff, ranger, wip and 1 more...
I´ve wanted cool ranger models for a while but haven´t found any (or haven´t looked enough). So, I decided to make some myself, I acquired a taste for the sculpting part of the hobby when I converted my party dwarf some time ago. In this stage I´ve only just finished his leather armour for the upper body. I´m thinking of shorts and bare feet and a long...

miner, wip
I won the painting competition! Yea!

I´ll celebrate with posting a pic of a miner that you´ve seen before. The back is more or less finished, not so sure bout the green bags but I´ll let them be. Did the pick today. Went from black/boltgun metal to vallejo mithril silver. However, I found that mithril silver is not light enough! Tried mixing...

Party Dwarf Wip

time for some WIP-pics of my entry in the October Painting Competition here at Bugmans Brewery. It´s a conversion I did some weeks back and for the competition I decided to add a beer-mug and a backpack filled with beer and a tap, lol.

Here he is as of now, a lot of work left and I´m working slower than I thought was...


1000 Pt All Metal Army Goal

Posted by Hitmonkey , in Gaming, Other 12 October 2012 - - - - - - · 1,211 views

Hi, everyone.

Been a while since the last update, been busy with the october painting contest. I might put up some WIP photos in a couple o days. Well, I thought I´d share with you my army list in progress. I´ve always been more interested in the painting and collecting and frankly, it was eight years ago I played my last match (got massacred by Chaos...


Painting Miner Faces Wip

Posted by Hitmonkey , in Painting 28 September 2012 - - - - - - · 1,848 views

Hi, thought I´d update with a work in progress photo.

Progress on my troop of miners is excruciatingly slow but I´m learning a lot. Today I tried a kind of blending technique for the faces. Used layer upon layer of watered down paints to give these two guys some personality. I´m quite happy with how the left one turned out, even though credit has to go...


Flame Cannoneers Done

Posted by Hitmonkey , in Painting 27 September 2012 - - - - - - · 1,180 views

I finished these old 90s flame cannon crew men last night for the September Painting Contest. The stripes might become a theme for my throng. Had a lot of work with the hammer of the blonde guy. Ended up with a more or less "metal-without-metallic-paints" technique even though I actually used metallic paints on some parts. I think I´ll continue...

green stuff, warrior, conversion and 2 more...
Hi again!

I´m going to make a unit of dwarf warriors like these. I just love those pants! I never worked in green stuff before but I´m really happy with the result. The goggles are there because I couldnt face sculpting those tiny eyes but I like it. Gives him a bit of steam punk feel. He´s also beardless but moustachioed. I guess some people...


First Miniature In A While

miner, painting
Hi everyone!

I started collecting dwarves when I was around twelve or thirteen. During my teenage years I painted a 4000 pt army. Now I´m 24, going on 25 this year, and when I look at my ole beloved army (of Karak Norn if I remember correctly) it´s not as awesomely painted as I remember. It´s been at least five years since I painted...
