Well like wraithlord on CofC i painted a mini for the exchange, but i kept mine a super secret project until now ;) heh. Was definately a fun mini exchange and im happy with my first rackham model



Then for a wamp competition i managed to cook something up in about 4 hours of painting, the model is so small it's a tough model to paint, but still i like it :)

Great miniatures here as always moo. Not a clue what that last model is but it looks like a cool model and the paintjob is quality, it looks brilliantly dark and 'spooky'.

A couple of nice models there moo.

I like the red on the rackham model, whatever it is. Do you have any more pics at different angels?

A very spook mini with the little girl. Reminds of a cross between Dr Who (Are you my mummy?), FEAR and the borg :grin:

Have some +rep

Thanks for the nice comments :),

@ Dirty Dog: it's just practice and patience, in general i will paint like 3-4 hours a night after work if im not working in the evening (2nd job :/) and been doing this routine for a while now and slowly getting better :) plus it's always good to get people's comments on work so you know where you can improve.

@red corsair: the model is from the fatal personality company which have a very small range but nicely sculpted figures, some raunchy models there too but this was my favourite one with a scary girl.

@Humakt: unfortunately i sent the model off already but i can ask the guy to take some better photos for me. FEAR was my motivation and inspiration on this one, loved that game. Headphones on + sound to the max + alone in a dark room + FEAR = recipe for a heart attack.

@AM: the tubules were quite easy actually they were just a black primer, with the foundation grey mixed with black and i worked my way up to fortress grey. Using thin layers of paint and by trying to keep the layers thin the paint generally has a higher water content so you can almost feather the layers together if you're quick enough. So it's a semi-wetblend/feathering technique using layers if that makes any sense :D it's generally how i paint most of my stuff altho i have been trying out more and more pure glazing, so time consuming but you can't deny the results :D

Wow, everything is simply stunning and puts all my work to shame. You definitely have much talent there.

Thanks for the rep and nice comments,

@ Inquisitor Varrius: empty your inbox on heresy ;) oh and to answer your question the model company is called fatal personality

http://www.fatalpersonality.com/news.php

This link will take you to their site, some nice minis but at this moment a fairly limited range. But the quality is there.

Ok so i recieved my copy of space hulk and started work on it :) i have caved in and started to paint one of the minis, the detail is so good on these models and so far i've had alot of fun painting the mini. Anyway i wanted to try mixing metallics with nmm . I think i didn't add enough metallic paint but the addition of shining gold gave the metallics a much brighter colour which i really like actually. Anyway i'll keep trying and my focus is all on space hulk at the moment !

This has a huge potential of becoming a thread of space hulk win. That leg looks like a very good start:biggrin:

Thanks for the kind words :) well if there is anything anyone ever wants to ask feel free. I think painting is definately something everyone can share and appreciate. With me it's just practice and patience, water down your paints and layer up. Anyway i've done alot of the gold and gems on his torso and started the base coat on the helmet and shoulder pad :D im happy at this stage altho i need to tidy up that base coat for the helmet.


Comments and crits are always welcome as always :D
