Warhammer dwarf cannon WIP 9, Dwarf engineer



I a having a blast painting this war machine, finally I got back to the joy of painting. I think I will write an article in the future about the painter's burnout sindrome and ways to avoid it.

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 :)

Some more progress in the cannon. This time I went for a combination of a rich turquoise with a simulation of bronze ( or at least that is what I aimed for...).

Have you ever wondered why the painting masters prevent you from the perils of using too much black on your mixtures?

Have you ever wondered how applying black to a skin mix can affect the overall result on your minis?

Do not worry, I am here to show you that.

On the left you will see my initial attempt to the skin, to the right the dwarf as it stands now. I had to correct the whole skin as I am looking for a really vibrant and colourful piece on this war machine.

Warhammer Vampire Counts Ghouls


This is finally the mini unit of 5 for my friend´s Vampire count army.

It has been a good exercise to get back to the habbit of painting.

Any comments, criticism , feedback  always welcome!

Best regards,

Warhammer Vampire Counts Ghouls-WIP2


Finally I dicided that the blue skin didn´t do the trick, so I went for the classic rotting flesh for these guys.

The models are quite simple, nothing fancy about them.

Soon the unit to be finished.

Warhammer Vampire Counts Ghouls-WIP1


It has been a long time since I last posted anything on the Blog. 

Sometimes live just happens, and we find ourselves with no motivation to keep doing what we really love. Anyway, it feels really great to be back, batteries are fully charged and I am ready to give my painting a big push this year.

As you can see in the photo above, I painted a Mantic Games Ghoul. I think that the models are really cool, and the value for money is pretty amazing. You can find them HERE. I went for the blue kind of skin, but to be honest I am not convinced at all, so I will change the whole scheme and provably go for a classic pale rotting flesh colour.

This miniature will be part of a gift for a friend as a part of a unit for his Vampire Counts army. I previously painted for him a mini conversion of a MOUNTED BLOOD DRAGON  for his birthday. If Truth be told we have both been growing our armies for ages!!!

Best regards,

Gimnir

Warhammer Dwarf Demon Slayer



Here you can see the latest incorporation to my dwarf army. A  dwarf demon Slayer.

I am trying to get the habit of painting back, but is proving to be a challenge. Hopefully the painting mojo will get back to me! :)

You are more than welcome to leave any comments or any critics on the comments box below.

Dwarf thunderers FINISHED!!!!


And finally the dwarf thunderers are ready to kick ass. The paint job could be improved big time, but there is no pretensions in this unit, just painting my lovely dwarf thunderers to a decent standard for my cabinet and the war field.

IT ONLY TOOK ME 6 YEARS to put them together since I got them LOL!!!!

You can see that the bases are square and that is because I do not like very much Age Of Sigmar (But that would be another topic). For all of you that want to keep living adventures and commanding your favourite army in the traditional warhammer world I recommend you to give a go to WARHAMMER REFORGED. In their blog there is an inmense amount of resources and rules books.....everything free!!! Again thank you very much for your hard work.

Here I leave the link to CMON just in case you want to drop a vote :)

Dwarf thunderers WIP 9


Really close now to the end of the unit. I went for a green banner, all the banners in my dwarf army are red so far so I thought it would be a nice change for once ;)

I honestly cannot wait to see all the unit together.

Going this time for a vibrant color scheme.

Goodbye 2016 , hello 2017. Not the best year if we speak about miniature painting, lots of changes going on in my personal life, so I guess that going through a rough patch doesn't make anything easier.

I will try to keep the blog updated and start preparing some articles to help everyone that reads the blog.

Still in its early stages, long run to go.

Greetings
