Undead for Widowers Wood board game painted

I painted up all this lot in basically an evening! I was planning on painting something during Rikers Iron's monthly community paint along but I felt so tired I didn't have the concentration to paint anything detailed. I decided to paint my two Feralgeist's as I knew they would  be nice and easy to do.
...but my batch painter issues made me end up painting all the undead models from my Widowers wood board game set all at the same time anyway!
This is a blessing and a curse, I could have got the Feralgeist's finished much quicker if I had painted them only, but at least I got all this lot done!

For my Widowers wood and Undercity board game minis I want to include the colour of the plastic they are made out of somewhere on the mini if possible. But I won't go out of my way or change my colour schemes to force it in. I paint the raised line that marks the models front arc the colour of their plastic. This will help me know which one they are when playing.

So I now have 3 Pistol Wraiths... I doubt I will ever use 3 during a IKRPG session so I might part with my old metal one.

6 more warrior thralls! This brings me up to 9 in total. Though unlikely it is possible that Alexia2 could make that many during a game. (super unlikely though...)

I added some extra bones to the base of these boneswarms to make them look even more like they are rising up out of the ground. I used bones from a Skulls and bones sheet which are from Toad King Castings. You can find their shop here

So what do you think of my undead? Painting them up "Andrew" style might be seen as a cop out to some I know, but as "lesser" undead to me I don't want to put too much time into them. I'm currently painting a Gatorman Soul Slave and Maelok who are both getting detailed paint jobs as I feel they earn it more.

Reaper Miniatures Wizard Painted

I painted up a Wizard during Rikers Irons Twich stream paint along.
It was a community paint along in which we all painted up wizard miniatures, mainly from Reaper.
This one is a MYSTIC THEURGE - (Reaper Bones Pathfinder - 89021) if you want to find one for yourself.

It was a really fun mini to paint, as a batch painter I don't normally paint a single model so it was a nice change of pace. Working on improving my blending while painting up the greens of the robes was a nice challenge. 

Picking all the colours for various parts of the mini has always been something of a minor block for me, so painting along with other people I was able to ask them for help during the painting which was a great help.

Hard to get such a small detail to focus but I painted the wands tied to the book with crystal looking tips. I'm really happy with them.

I plan on using him in the Iron Kingdoms RPG most likely as a Storm Sorcerer either for a player character or an NPC.
What do you think of my wizard?

Captain Victoria Haley Painted

Haley1 is done! She has been in my pairing for a while now and has done me proud I've really been enjoying using her so I figured I would upgrade to the new resculpt as a reward.

The hand of nope... that spell isn't gonna happen!

She was really fun to paint, I'm so much more impressed with this sculpt of her. It really is so much better than the old version of her.

What do you think of the newer Haley1 sculpt?
Well its on to painting Gators for me for a while at least...

Making terrain on a budget: Walls

Continuing my quest to finish up wip projects I finally got my walls which I made ages ago painted.
These are all on a thin piece of board which I cut to the same size as the official wall templates used in Warmachine and Hordes. 4" x 0.75"

The first wall is made of Barrels and Sand bags which I bought from Renedra you can find them here

The 2nd wall I wanted to look a bit different so the bulk of it is made up of the weapon from a Khador Marauder. I also put some rocks made from cork under the sand bags on one side to add a bit more variety.  

So what do you think of my walls?
I'm getting closer to having enough home made terrain for my table.
Next terrain projects I have in mind are to make some rubble and woods.

Terror Grub and Giant Slugs Painted

I got this lot ages ago from Heresy Minatures, they had been sat wip for a very long time, I saw one that someone else painted a day or so ago on Twitter which prompted me to finish mine!

I actually painted the inside of the mouth before I attached the part with all the teeth. Its really hard to see inside to notice so it was mainly for my own feeling of satisfaction!

I really enjoyed painting the yellow pustules blending them into the green of the skin.

The bone spikes poking out of its body all over make me think that I might make it have some defensive rules when I use it in RPG's

I have 6 Giant Slugs 2 of each sculpt, here they are front and back. These guys painted up nice and easy.

I plan to use them as Millasaurs for Necromunda and as random monsters for Iron Kingdoms RPG

What do you think of these guys? 
If you want them now is a great time to pick them up as they are currently on sale, you can find them here

Cygnar Army Completely Painted!

Its finally done! I have the whole of Cygnar painted mostly at max field allowance. I am so pleased to have the army finished.

So this section is my Sword and Precursor knights, along with the associated solos.

Storm knights led by Stryker1,2&3 and Maddox with their character jacks with them.

My Storm smith crew, I really enjoy running an army which is everything Stormsmith at max FA led by Nemo3. 

Darius leads the heaviest of my warjacks

My favourite theme in the army my Trenchers! These guys are what got me into the faction back in mk2. They may not have been that good back then but I loved how they looked.

My Gunmages, currently one of my favourite lists is all these gunmages together in the same army with Haley1 leading them.

So now I have to paint something else... which will likely be my Gatorman army.
So what do you think of my army now its all done?
