Dwarf Rangers-Avatars of War-WIP 1


Some WIP going on with my dwarf army...looks like this year will be the year of the DWARF.

These miniatures by Avatars of War  are a delight to paint. If you don't know who Felix Paniagua is then please take some time to check his range of miniatures. Felix Paniagua sculpted some of the most iconic dwarfs from the former Warhammer Fantasy universe.

In my honest opinion these miniatures are the best range of dwarf rangers in the 28mm range market.

For the unit I always had in mind a unit of rangers patrolling the forest near the dwarf fortress. That is why there are some orc skulls here and there. These bad boys are clearing the scum from their territory one orc at a time.





I hope you like it and as alwyays please be welcome to leave any feedback in the comment section.

Scale 75 Abyssal bust




3 months with no WIP pictures on the blog...shame on me!!!

Here you can see my take on the Abyssal Warlord bust by Scale 75. This miniature is a must for anybody that is interested on understanding volumes. The bust is massive and will give you plenty of room to experiment with pretty much anything you want to try.

This time I wanted to experiment on SPECIFIC POINTS ...As you can tell I failed miserably in some of the points(I do not think I achieved a white painted like plate armour) and achieved a just OK result in some others, but guess what!? This is the whole point of this, trying different things, learning something new and having fun in the way.

I hope you like it.

Scale 75 Abyssal bust-WIP 2




Work in progress for the abyssal warlord. As I mentioned in the openning post for this bad boy, I wanted to go go for a white armour style.

Not too sure if I am getting where I wanted but at least is some progress, and hey, where is the fun if there is no learning!!

Scale 75 Abyssal bust-setting the goals


I took a nice little break from miniature painting after The white dwarf. And I thought that it would be amazing to attack some of the members of the infamous list that I prepared some years ago with all the majority of the miniatures that have been waiting to be painted for ages. 

This bust sculpted by Alfonso Giraldes for Scale 75 is a monstruosity, as big as my fist and the detail is amazing. Alfonso had been a commercial painter for ages and when he designed this piece for sure that he knew what to offer to all the painters out there: VOLUMES and TEXTURES. It is a really niece piece because you have the round and cilinder like shoulder pads, a nice and big bold head that allows testing skin tones, fur and metal alike.

In this miniature I would like to set here some of the things I'd like to explore and try to further my understanding of colour:
  1. White like armour
  2. Iron rust beneath white painted plate.
  3. Subtle red osl underneath figure
  4. Purple deep eyes
  5. Pale gold
  6. Some eye effect on the chest and shoulder armour plates
Lets see what we get at the end, but certainly what I love about this hobby is the learning process, trial and error.

Warhammer : Gotrek, Bugman and Gombrindal the White dwarf




Finally I am done with this miniature. I loved the process of getting them ready for some tabletop action. 

I will now take a break from my dwarf army and paint something different to recharge the creative mojo.

Warhammer : Gotrek, Bugman and Gombrindal the White dwarf, WIP2




Long break from posting but that doesn't mean that I am not painting.

This is another WIP picture from my warhammer fantasy dwarf army army commander: The only and unique-the WHITE DWARF with GOTREK and BUGMAN as shield bearers.

Hope you like it.

Let me now what you think and if you are still collecting any warhammer fantasy army yourself.

Warhammer dwarf cannon WIP 8, Dwarf engineer


One step closer now to the destination. Still halfway trough this fella but eventually we will get there :)

This Master Engineer will be supervising the cannon crew. He will be detachable from the base as an additional option for the unit.

Warhammer dwarf cannon WIP 7

Slowly getting through this lovely miniature.

Still quite a lot to do:

-Getting the base done.
-Retouching the metals of the cannon and dwarfs.
-Detailing the base.
-Adding an engineer to supervise these guys.

It is at this point of the project when everybody needs to be focused, as the energy starts to decrease and the desire to finish increases. It is all about the little details :)

Gimnir
