Paint Table Saturday (7/26/14)

I missed last week's update due to being out of town and away from my computer all day. In the interim, my table's been filling up! Let's take a look:

Starting from the left of the frame, we see my growing WarmaHordes Skorne force. I finished up my Titan Gladiator this week (and will be posting photos soon) and am moving on to the others currently in my collection. This progress has stoked my enthusiasm for this project, and I've already started adding more figures, with some more on the way.

Moving to the right, we see a couple diorama projects I'm working on - a foray into 40mm scale that I'll be posting about at some point in the future, and then an RPG-related project for the King Arthur Pendragon campaign I'm working on.

Then, we've got my two Ronin factions that I pulled out today, figuring I might as well get a start on them.

Finally, peeking in from the right-hand frame, my remaining Legio Metalica titans for my Epic40K collection. They're half-painted at this point and waiting patiently for my Epic muse to return. Right now, I'm pretty gung-ho on the Skorne, and so the Skorne shall continue to hold my attention for the time-being.

As always, photos of completed models will be forthcoming as time allows. Til next week!

Paint Table Saturday (7/12/14)

I didn't have many free nights this week for painting, but I did manage to make a start on the first figure for my WarmaHordes Skorne force, a Titan Gladiator. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm trying out a non-conventional color palette. I'm going for a sort of irridescent scarab beetle effect on the armor plates, and I'm quite happy with how it's turning out. I'm going to try and get it a little lighter and shinier; hopefully by next week, it'll be in a state where I can take some more detailed shots. In the meantime, here's a teaser...

(I'm also already considering popping my Skorne off their regular bases and putting them on clear bases - my Malifaux crew keep winking at me from the cabinet, telling me to do it.)

(In the background there you can see a General Chuikov figure I'm planning on painting up for a larf, as he's one of my favorite WWII generals. There's also a bagged figure that I won't go into detail about just yet, but it's another display project.)

Paint Table Saturday (7/5/14)

As alluded to in my last post, I've decided to make an effort towards more regular posting here by way of the "Paint Table Saturday" meme. The idea is that every Saturday you snap a picture of what you're working on that week. I think it's a great way to keep a record of how projects slowly come to fruition, and I'm looking forward to generating a nice backlog of pics. (Although I won't be so optimistic as to think I'll manage to post a picture every Saturday...but we'll see.)

At any rate, on with the inaugural picture!

Having wrapped up my Malifaux project, I'm going back to painting more titans for my Epic40K collection (on the left) and am planning to get to work on my nascent Skorne collection for WarmaHordes (right).

As I'm a bit sick of painting reds thanks to all my Legio Metalica titans, I'm going to go with a non-standard color scheme for the Skorne. At the moment, I'm planning on trying to pull off a sort of iridescent scarab beetle pattern, although I'm not sure if I'll be able to do so. But what's the fun of painting miniatures if you don't challenge yourself from time to time? We'll see where things stand by next week...
