Another Battle Brother joins the ranks...

Finished with another fella last night, so without further adue I present to you another of my dealers of death:

And here are some bonus pictures of him and his fellow puppies:

I might add OSL to his face, and thus making his eyes shine bright with blue to further represent his ability to command the raging winter storms of Fenris by his mind. Either that or I will paint Gammelman's (the Wolf Priest) face a tad warmer in the shades to make him look like less of a corpse :P

Odin's Voice On Earth

I'm finally done with my first wolf priest.
(The blood on the head have been textured since the pic was taken).

Sinking fangs into warm and bloody meat..

Managed to finish off the 8th fella as well ^^,
He turned out great, fiercest of the bunch thus far IMO.
And yes, I WILL get pics with good lighting soon (tomorrow).

Back up to speed

Managed to finish the Wolf Guard as well as add burnt (tried to make it look burnt) on the Power Sword on the previously finished model.

C&C Appreciated as always.
Now I need to finish the last 2 from the first squad then I'm gonna start with my Wolf Priest, "Gammelman", (Old Man; a character from a Swedish humor TV series about vikings, he is the village's elderly shaman).

I have finally managed to get me arse out of the wagon and started on my space puppies once more.

One done, two 90% done (with faces, blood and a few details left).

I'm fully aware that his tip of the sword looks "chunky" in the pic, I redid the tip so it's nice and smooth now (at first I forgot it was supposed to be a frostblade and not a normal power sword and thus painted it glowing green so it's been redone 3 times ><).

I'm thinkin' about adding some dripping blood from the sword, C&C on that?

Back in the saddle!

Alrighty, I got a bit off track for a while with school, and some new PC games hitting the market, etc.

but now I've managed to finish my Ultramarine chapter master (the night before the tourney starts.... -_- ).

here he is (and now I can go back to my wolves :D)





Until next time...

A blast from the past

My old man sent me an email with a few pics taken when I was somewhere between 11-13 years "old".

This is how I painted back then (Completely horrible)

And I DID play Fantasy back in the day... (Shame on me)

Oh and sorry about no updates on the wolves or the Ultramarine, the Ultrad00d will be complete tonight hopefully; have been a lot of stuff getting in the way. The Wolves will be resumed once he is complete.

Cheers for now

More work on my Ultramarine

The cape is now done (after the pic was taken I added a red wash to bind the colors together as well as tidied up one of the highlights).

The Sword have also received maybe 4-5 more layers on the golden NMM.

And yes, the small bumps on the cape have been taken care of (2 of them was mould-"dots" which I didn't see until I had highlighted them :P)

Something out of the "ordinary"

So... I know this is out of the ordinary but since I'm going to take part in a duals tournament with my pal Dennis over at: minisofdeath.blogspot.com very soon at GW Stockholm and my wolves aren't anywhere even remotely close to done (as you all can attest to :P) I will be playing with my tabletop standard Ultramarine army (I painted this army about 10 years back, and I started with Ultras back in the 2nd edition when I was just a juve so don't go bashing on me for having kept with my chapter all this time ;P).

I needed a Chapter Master armed with nothing but a normal CC weapon and a bolt pistol, which none of my HQ's had (I'm not used to playing only 750p games :P) I went out and bought Sicarus, because he screams Ultramarines.

My original plan was to make him tabletop standard, but I failed quite large when I realised I spent quite some time on the head alone, so not the entire model had to be painted to a good standard, but I figured that since there's both B&C's and GW Stockholm's painting comps. coming up real soon I might as well paint him nice and add him to my line-up of competing models :P

This was my first go at NMM (Having not read any guides on it either), he will have golden NMM shoulder pads, a crimson red/decorated tan cape and white ropes when done on top of what's painted now. Might also add some freehand on the cape.

Since this is my first NMM model ever, comments and critisism are greatly appreciated on this one.

Thanks for looking, comment/subscribe/follow if you enjoy my stuff.
PS. I love doing tutorials, so if you have any questions on how I do stuff, please, ask ;)

5th Wolf Complete

Alrighty, managed to get my 5th wolf "complete" (he needs pupils but to be quite honest I don't have a brush small enough to make it happen... :/ )

And now it's off to paint another 5 before the 1st :P

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

2 more wolves done, 1 90% finished

Alrighty, got my "lightbox" correctly set up and finished 2 out of the 3 wolves today, the last guy have only the face and hair left so he'll be finished by tomorrow :D










Input is, as always, greatly appreciated

3 more enroute!

Alrighty, I've had the apartment for myself Saturday -Monday (that's right, the "vacation" isn't over yet ^^,) and thus I've enjoyed some great live metal DVDs (Amon Amarth, Dark Tranquility, Arch Enemy, Vital Remains, etc.) while painting.

These guys are almost done (well, like 70% done at least :P)

Oh and I'd love some input on what color I should use for my plasma coils on these guys.
I've used green for my Black Legion, Blue for my Ultramarines and I'm thinkin' a bright orange for these guys, but I'm concerned about the amount of red/reddish colors on them already, will it be too much (seeing as they already have red eyes, red shoulder pads and red on the backs of the pelts as well as on the gems) ?





Comments and Criticism is always wanted and greatly appreciated!

Weathered Wolves.....finally

Sorry for the delay, School and some other things *cough* Dragon Age: Origins *cough* halted my painting progress for a little while, but now I've been working on this tutorial for you guys over about 3 days time. And it's done :D

Step one:


Basecoat the model with Adeptus Battle Grey

Step 2:


Drybrush with Fortress Grey

Step 3:


Wash the model Babab Black

Step 4:


Drybrush Codex Grey, in this step I try to get more paint where the light is supposed to be hitting the model's surfaces.

Step 5:


Now Drybrush with fortress Grey again, still keeping in mind where the light is supposed to hit the surfaces (this is only if you want to achieve such an effect on the model).

Step 6:


Highlight the model with Fortress Grey

Step 7:


Now I create an 1:10 mix of Vermin Brown : Water and wash the darker/deeper areas of the model.

Step 8:


Now I create an 1:10 mix of Scorched Brown : Water and go over the entire model, but I try to get more in the darker/deeper parts of the model.

Step 9:


Now I go back, highlighting all the most prominent areas of the model.
You are now done :D

And just to show you guys why on earth it took 3 days to complete the tutorial, well... I kind of did it on many models at the same time....


I'm hoping you'll enjoy this tutorial, please comment if you do :)

And I'll try to have 2-3 more models finished with my next post.
