It’s taken a while to get these ready for posting. A couple of Blood Bowl Minotaurs and a Chaos Dwarf Bull Centaur. Favourite sculpt of the three has to be the black mino. Didn’t think it would be but it was great to paint.

The second coat of varnish dried a bit shiny on these and is amplified somewhat by my lights. It seems trying to get a decent matt finish on a model is something akin to creating a homeopathic remedy. Only varnish on a Tuesday during daylight hours when the sun is out whilst wearing a turquoise shell suit and standing on one leg. Even then the chances of it working are 50/50.

A few Otherworld Miniatures pieces painted last week.

A few Otherworld Miniatures pieces painted last week. Aphris, Avvala and Sinstar the Sly from the Judge’s Guild range.

Paint work on these should be nigh on indestructible after four coats of varnish! My usual second coat dried rather shiney and the attempt to fix it with an alternative brand, Testor’s Dullcote spray left them looking even worse (regretting giving in and buying that crap after years of avoiding it). Thankfully another coat of my usual Revell brush on stuff was able to take the shine down a fair bit.

Red Box Games Norse

A quick post to show some recent Red Box Games Norse I painted. These are part of a much bigger commission that long time followers will likely have seen me working through over quite some time now. There’s also a Hasslefree Miniatures figure in there, Ynjen who fits in quite nicely.

Still more to do but onto other things next week.

Minor update on the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Lord Relictor. I mentioned in my last post that I’d added some fronds of barbed bracken to the base so thought I’d show where things are at now. These are the individual leaf fronds rather than the full plants that I’ve used on my other Stormcast bases. Not sure if it’s noticeable in these pics but I’ve very subtly varied the greens on some of the leaves. Just need to do the hammer head and retouch some of the pointy bits before moving onto the relic standard.

Had a little time at the weekend to do a bit more on my Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormcast Eternals Lord Relictor. It’s been slow going with this fella but now the scrolls have been attached to his back it’s another step closer to completion. After taking this photo I went on to finish the scrolls and added some bracken fronds and a couple of cheeky skulls to the base.
