I paint minatures since 2018. It’s new fun to me. I always had an inclination into arts – music, dance, painting – but never done anything “official” with it. No school, no courses or so on. But I started with my husband’s Necrons. I discovered it is quite easy and fun, so I continued – painted almost whole 24 warriors. And some wraiths. And an Overlord. And 5 Deathmarks. But it’s a topic for another note.
Necron Warrior looks up in strange inquisitiveness. “What lies in a future…?”
Sooo we (me and husbad) bought a box containing Adeptus Mechanicum and painted some of those guys. Totally different material (beacuse Necrons are metal, AdMechs are metal/fabric), but still I think I nailed it. High Priest pictured below has been used in some battles, so You can see some small damages on edges.
I’m really proud of colour gradient on the hood and the alembic.
Here is some wear damage to the barrel.
And the whole Priest. Only thing he misses now is a model of ice cream refregirator to point to. “Is this with true vanilla or just vanilla-flavoured?”
Here it comes…! Lizardmen!
I remember from my childchood holidays, at my aunt’s house there were “older guys” playing the ol’ good Warhammer Fantasy Battle. My and my friends were always curious about all the minatures they had there. My favaurites were the lizardman. Years passed, now I am the “old guy”, I have my own money so I bought myself a whole box of Age of Sigmar’s Seraphon. New fancy name, good old lizards inside.
The base and some shade.
Few weeks later I come back to my lizard warriors and start painting layers. Sotek Green, Bahharoth Blue.
I painted the spikes with Vallejo Game Color Fluorescent Green.
Added some nice floral detail.
Highlights on a shield. And some lines to indicate “writing”.
“You taklin’ to me…?!” The eyeballs are PAINFUL. That’s because there is always “pain” in “painting”.
There are warriors I glued together and starded painting. There are much more left than in a box, so I’m preparing for endless fun od scales and nice, basic colorus (RGB!). I put some more detail in a leader, put some scars on his face and mounted shrunken heads to his shield. He is fearsome!
I took a head from one of lizard riders to make the leader look more important than his comrades.
Details of his wooden morningstar. Painted with Vallejo Game Ink Black.
I carved and painted the scar on his head. He looks somewhat done with the world and I can relate to that.
Highlights on a shield plus close-up on bloody runes and heads of ex-haters.
I painted some of his scales individually, to make them pop-up.
I am proud of shaiding and delicate layering on his calves.
And, for the desserts, the whole group of them: enjoy and FEAR THE SERAPHON (or something like that, i’m not really into Sigmar’s lore).
