Painting Progress, January 2011

Here are some of the photos from the work I've been doing this month. The first few photos are the Butcher of Khardov from Warmachine.

I also finished up one of the Widowmakers and started on a second. I really like the way the highlights are blending together on the wide areas of the coats. In retrospect I probablyshouldn't have painted the jacket on the second one red, but I really like the way it turned out.

The last photos are from my first set of 20 Skaven Clanrats with spears. I don't have the shields done yet but I will put up more pictures when the unit is done. The fur ended up with a bit of a red tint due to the undercoat I used. For the next batch I'll use a different primer and hopefully end up with more of a brown color.

The Ratmen Cometh

Within the past few weeks I've sold off all of my dwarves as well as some extra space wolves I had laying around. I kept a few of the wolves to paint up as display pieces when I need something different to paint as a change of pace.

I've been working bit by bit on some Khador widowmakers for Warmachine, I'm not really in a hurry to get them painted so it's been nice to work on my techniques. Right now I'm really working on blending highlights from dark to light on larger surfaces. When I have some time I'll try to get some pictures up. I also finished another Widowmaker as well as the Butcher of Khardov.

My main project right now is working on some Skaven. I have 20 clanrats with spears that are just about done (15 completed, 5 in progress). Once I have them done I have the Skaven from Island of Blood on the way, should keep me busy painting for a while to come. I'll get some pictures up of the completed Skaven when I have some extra time.
