WIP: Eldar Wave Serpent Type II of Iybraesil #4

As you can see, I made some good progress on my Wave Serpent over the weekend. I painted the serpent shield generators, the canopy and the vectored engines. I also added some of my custom made runic pattern decals to the hull. Left do do are the underslung Shuriken Cannon and the turret Scatter Lasers, as well as applying a coat of varnish for an even matte surface. I really like the look so far, what do you think? Next post should be a showcase of the finished model by the way ;)

Showcase: 12 Hunter Orcs from the Hobbit

"I don't want excuses. I want the head of the Dwarf-king!" With Azog to answer to, these Hunter Orcs on foot are a determined horde of fighters. Close ups and group shots of Azog's entire warband after the jump!

Showcase: Warriors of Chaos Daemon Prince

Hey all, today I'm showing a Daemon Prince for a Warriors of Chaos army that I'm painting as a commission. I really enjoyed painting this model and it was also fairly quick to complete as well. I used a lot of homemade weathering pigments for the shading of the skin. I made the pigments from scraping down pastels that I bought in an art store. Making pigments this way is not only cheap to do but also you have such a large colour range to choose from. Hopefully I will get up some more models for the Chaos army in the coming days. What do you think? Have any of you tried making your own pigments?

In this tutorial I'll explain step by step how I paint fire. The camp fire model is from the Hobbit miniature range and is included in the Troll box set. This guide will work for any model.

Showcase: The Empire, Markus Wulfhart

Here he is Markus Wulfhart, Huntsmarshal of the Empire and the finest scout in all the Empire. He first gained notoriety when driven by revenge he slew the Drakwald Cyclops. He then swore that no other village or settlement would suffer the fate of his beloved Drakenburg and has since spent his time hunting the various monsters that prey on the people of the Empire.

WIP: Eldar Wave Serpent Type II of Iybraesil #3

Update on my Wave Serpent with type II upgrade parts from Forge World. I finished highlighting the hull and also painted the black areas. Now I need to paint the bone details and tidy everything up, then I need to work through all the weapons and small bits. Guess that will take another couple of days though. I hope I can get most of the work done over the weekend. What do you think?

Today I present to you lovely people a collection of my Walkers. I recently shared a showcase post of my fliers so I thought I would continue the series with models I own with the unit description 'Walker'. Check out the close-ups after the jump.
