Daemonette Project - first mini

Sat down to work on the first daemonette tonight. Just keeping the momentum going...


Just a little drybrushing on the base and possibly a little tweaking of the colours when the group is all done.
A miniature painted from start to finish in an evening. One of those nice hobby things.

Daemonette project - conversions

New little project. Doing a lot of different stuff at the moment. These are some the many ideas:


A skirmish group of daemonette conversions. Maybe they will even turn into some kind of an army.
Also, terrain is on my mind at the moment but more on that later...

Tyranid Termagaunt

 Found this model the other night with the base colours sprayed on with airbrush. I guess I did the airbrushing about a year ago and left it there. Anyway 50 minutes of painting and then the following evening about 15 minutes of final touches and the base and there is another model finished. Not to the greatests of standards, but I enjoyed getting the creature done in the colours and style that I wanted.

I used a mix of Citadel washes, some zombicide washes from Army Painter, white, bubonic brown (Yup! -g ot a bottle of that old Citadel classic!), and W&N red ink. Oh, and boltgun metal for the claws. All in all fun with a few colours and another model to go on the shelf.

Final WIP - Vilitch the Curseling

Looking nearly finished the model is not all there yet. A few little things has been touched since I took these images last Sunday. I sometimes do a few photos of a mini when I think it is almost there, but not quite at the same time either. A different set of eyes in a way, digital eyes, and blasted up in mega-size on the screen...

So seeing the mini up close in the photo I found a few little areas that could be improved. Mainly the feathers (deeper shading, stronger yellow), but also a few small other areas which has benefitted from a little more attention.

September Goal - end status

Well, September has been and gone and I almost finished my planned models:

The Night Goblin below was created as a warm-up for the Chaos Champion of Tzeentch.


So far both projects has been really fun, and I look forward to getting into the final work on the Chaos Dude. A really cool model btw. I quite enjoy painting him. As you can see I have been working with a palette of yellow and blue with bright green for spot colour. So something without red og orange for a change...

More picture of the Night oblin on www.jrn-works.dk in the gallery section...

Summer models - a Scion and a Techmarine

While I am working away to meet the September goals, I am just posting this quick image to show what I did during the Summer. Two models. A Scion and and old Techmarine. Not much, but they were fun to paint. Of course they want to hang out with the Skull Collector (painted in early 2012), so it got into the picture as well.


 Somehow I seem to have a thing about orange at the moment. I believe there will be more of that to come...

September Goal

After a posting-wise slow and empty Summer I will try and gather some impact and momentum.
These two models are my goals for September. Anything else will be a bonus.


During the Summer I did paint a few models but I was unsure whether to share or save for a future publication. Thinking back I believe the way to go about creating "exclusive content" for any future booklets or similar will be to take a few extra shots in the process, but I also want to publish the stuff I have painted when I finish it. I don't want to save finished models for the future. So unless it is a secret competition project my goal will be to produce and share when the model is done. Then there might be some additional stuff to show in some special form in the future, but since the sharing is a driving factor- a way to keep momentum - then sharing will be part of the regular hobby stuff.

Late 80s Nurgle Champion

Latest model painted up. A great model, about 25 years old! A Classic Champion of Nurgle:

Painted purely for fun, quickly, and using my new lamp. I want to push myself to try and paint a bit more bright. Stronger colours pop easier - both in the cabinets and on the gaming board...

Among other I used that new GW technical colour, NIHILAKH OXIDE, and also made good use of the bottle of Reaper Master Series Moth Green that I got from good friend Todd Swanson ( http://www.crookedeye.net/ ) in the mail a few years ago. Such a fantastic bright green colour.
