The King

Here's a bust I did as a christmas present for my sister.
You may recognize this guy from a certain movie. ;) I wish I would have had started painting earlier, I ran a bit out of time, but I still think she'll be happy with it.

Merry Christmas everyone,

Christmas Comeback

Hey Folks!

There was a pretty long black nothing on the Tower the last couple of weeks, since me and Darkezekiel both had a lot of other things to attend do. (Yes, there is something else which doesn't involve minis ^^)

But today I'm reporting back with some pictures of Be'Lakor, the Dark Master, painted for our local gamestore.

The "mini" is so huge, that it didn't fit into my photobox, so the pics are not top notch this time (actually they never are ;)).

Have a nice christmas time everyone!

P.S.: Oh yes: GO WATCH AVATAR! I was in the movies yesterday (the movie just started in Austria) and have to say WOW! Absolutely inspiring, great great film!
Thank u James Cameron! ;)

Little Angels Campaign - Painting Contest

I recently talked with Jarhead from Massivevoodoo about a painting contest for which I really would like to get everybody's attention. It's about selling one or many of your miniatures on ebay and donating the auction's money for a good cause. I will certainly enter one or two pieces in this contest. If you are interested, just follow the link on the banner.

Imperial Army

He guys, i have finished the next two miniatures from the imperial army. It took only about 4 hours to complete them. In the next view days i would like to finish the cadian troops but i´m afraid of it because they are sooooo many :-)

Crimson Fist so far

A quick shot into my showcase.
It's strange to paint all these rather old models.
But oldschool is cool. ;)

Crimson Fist Dreadnought "Incoruptus"

His name is Incoruptus. For years he has
slumbered in the Crimson Fists' halls of honour, but now he
has awakened to clean New Rynn City from the ork-pollution and
bring glory to his chapter!

Rise of the machines

Today i want to show you my first necron i´ve painted. It is a destruktor and i have painted it in a very short time because i used my airbrush for the whole metal colour. In the next few days i want to show you more from my army but not yet.

Some dirty work...


First of all I'd like thank everybody who is writing comments on my blog, I'm really happy to get so much feedback! Unfortunatelly I did't have a lot of time to answer to everything and post new stuff, since I was on the road for the last 3 weeks (Germany trip :)). There'll be a lot more to see from now on, I promise. ;)

I've recentliy finished some "dirty work", which means a squad of crimson fist scouts and a unit of wood elves for a friend of mine. I tried to be really quick by using washes (elves) and armypainter (scouts). I think the scouts turned out better, the wood elves are a bit boring imo but good enough for the gaming table anyhow.

Ok, see for yourselves:

Hope you like it!

P.S.: Oh yeah, the FW vendetta kit has finally arrived! Stay tuned for updates on the Valkyre-diary (which should be named vendetta-diary from now on ^^)

Lord Commissar almost finished

Hi again!

Sorry for not posting for so long but I was on vacation the last 2 weeks and since the valkyre didn't fit into my suitcase, I had to paint something smaller while I was away. ;)

Here's my version of the Lord Commissar (still WIP):

Valkyre Diary - Entry 6

Just a short status update today: The Valkyre is almost fully assembled.
Only the weapons are missing because I'm still waiting for that Forgeworld Vendetta conversion-kit to arrive. The cockpit window is missing as well (wouldn't be very clever to glue that on now).

Still can't believe how huge the model is. Almost baneblade-huge. Damn...

Valkyre Diary - Entry 5

Well well well....
I did some final touches with my favourite weathering tool: the pencil!

I drew it over the edges...

scraped of a bit...

and used my finger for "painting" ^^
(this gives a realistic metalic sheen on the edges you rubb with it)

I also finished the gunners (I'll shoot some better pics later) and put everything together.

A quick CNN-style pic as a preview ;) :

Valkyre Diary - Entry 4

Hi again!

The interior is almost finished now. I worked with pigments to get dusty look on the ramps...

...and on the sides

and on the console...
I used umber and burnt umber. Just brush the dry pigments on the surface and blow-off the excess (or leave it ^^). I finally sprayed a coat of matt-varnish to fix them. Army Painter
"anti-shine" is great by the way.

I hope I'll be able to finish the gunners tonight...

Valkyre Diary - Entry 3

News from the front again... ;)
I painted all the buttons and pipes, the floor and the ramp.
I added a watered down wash of Devlan Mud to give the interior an even dirtier look.

Now it's time for the gunners and some experiments with pigments!
Check back tomorrow!

Valkyre Diary - Entry 2

I started airbrushing with a thin coat of Kommando Khaki. I usually have a self-made thinner containing 1 part of alcohol to 9 parts of water. I mix this 1:1 with the paint.
I use a 0,2mm noozle so things need to be really thin when spraying.

I then mixed some Ivory (VMC) in my color (any white will do if you don't have this particular one) and sprayed a second coat over it, trying to leave the recesses out, which didn't really work too good, since I'm still a little clumsy with my airbrush. ;)

Now it was time to start weathering the interior. I made a mix of Scorched Brown and Chaos Black (1:1) and used a sponge to apply little chips to the basecoated pieces. The Paint needs
to be watered down with about 50% water for this to work. This technique is very easy and straightforward. It just needs some trys to get te amount of paint on the sponge right.

I painted the lights(?) on the ceiling. I didn't want them to be on, so I painted them as if they were gems. Looks nice, but maybe it's a bit too flashy...

Then I painted all the buttons black, they'll be gems as well.

Furthermore I fixed the gunners on corks and primed them (this time with a white overspray).

I'm going to the movies now, but I'll continue work later! :)


Valkyre Diary - Entry 1

Hi Folks!

I came up with the idea to make a little step-by-step diary for the valkyreI'm currently working on. This should help to motivate myself and I'll try to show some techniques that might be interesting for one or the other.

Right now I've started to work on the interior. I'll assemble and paint this first, since it would be too difficult to do it once the valkyre is fully assembled.

Here's what happend so far:

The gunners are a little tricky to build without glueing them to the floor, but in the end it worked.
The interior parts, cleaned up and primed black. Normally I would make a second, dusty layer of white to define details and get more "grip" for the paint. But in this case I'll only use black because I'll continue with the airbrush. A black undercoat helps the get basic shadows when airbrushing over it. Once this is dry (in about 5 minutes :)) I'll start with the first layers of paint. So expect to hear from my in the next couple of hours. ;)

Cadian at the Campfire

Here's a little piece I did for a german painting competition.
The theme of it was "Feeling of security". I put a question mark
behind it though...

It's also on Coolmini: http://www.coolminiornot.com/229362

and again... Imperial Guard

Did some work on the IG again. This time it's that robeguy from the 3 advisors.
I begin to like wetblending. ;)

Weapons team and Lord Commisar

I did some work on the IG today. I plan on doing a little diorama
with a heavy weapons team and St. Celestine with removable minis.
Here's what I've done so far:

Furthermore I started painting the Lord Commisar. I'm trying to keep larger areas
desaturated. I used grey with a tiny drop of liche purple for the clothes.
Maybe I'll do NMM again on this one.

Bye , n00byfied

Converted Nurgle Dread

Hi! This piece was really great fun for me to build and paint. A lot of cool ideas and new techniques that I learned on a very inspiring evening of painting with Jarhead and Muhani (WHHolic). I really went crazy with making the model "dirty". It may be a bit too much though. Painting time was about 8 hours.
