Warhammer 40k-Imperial fists Tor Garadon

 


Painted Tor Garadon as a little break from my traditional "gusto" for Fantasy miniatures. Very lovely miniature with a lot of character. I shaved the sides of his head to enhance the militaristic look of the mini.

Warhammer Fantasy Dwarf Anvil of Doom

 


Here we have the classic Warhammer Anvil od Doom released on 1993 by Games Workshop in all its glory.


As mentioned in previous posts I tried to have a go an reinterprate the clasic artbox by GW with more current and modern paint style. I think that although there are a lot of primary colours in the same paintjob, overall the boxart still holds.



Above you can see some takes on reflective NMM. Works?? Up to you to judge.

I wanted to go for a modern interpretation of the classical paintjob with green and yellows as the original boxart.

The Laughing Heart

your life is your life

don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.

be on the watch.

there are ways out.

There is a light somewhere.

it may not be much light but

it beats the darkness.

be on the watch.

the gods will offer you chances.

know them.

take them.

you can’t beat death but

you can beat death in life, sometimes.

and the more often you learn to do it,

the more light there will be.

your life is your life.

know it while you have it.

you are marvelous

the gods wait to delight in you.

Warhammer dwarf rangers-Dwarf pathfinders Avatars of war

 My dwarf rangers are finally finished!!! this make me incredibly happy..so much work going onto them.

For the unit I tried to keep to the "theme" of my army, that is my dwarf Throng reconquering a fallen dwarf fortress from the orcs and goblins hands.

For this reason I tried to include details like the orc skulls here and there and some ancestor's statues fallen on the ground.

I thought that it would be super cool to include some animal friends as the rangers way of communicating any possible theats to the main throng. You will be able to see some crows painted in a really subtle scheme trying not to distract too much attention from the main stars of this scene.

Hope you like them, and as always I will always welcome any of your comments!

Dwarf Rangers-Avatars of War-WIP 3


The work continues on these Avatar of War Dwarf Rangers. As you can see they are installed on magnets to allow better deployment on the gaming table. Magnetizing the bases has been a game changer for me.

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.
