40K Missionary

Good old Golden Demons last minute rush painting entries. Mostly done in the week leading up to entry weekend with the good old almost no sleep on the last right going through DVDs of seasons of Black Adder this time around.

Artizan Cowboys

Was curious about the Artizan wild west range so picked a couple packs of guys on foot and on horse. They're unsurprisingly a bit small compared to the gigantic Dead Lands and generally tall Malifaux minis that I've collected so far. So to make them fit in a bit better I put a bit of plastic card under their cast on bases and then smoothed out the bases with plaster filler.

Old West General Store

This is my 1st paint up on a small building that I designed for Aetherworks, they went on sale at MOAB recently but I didn't have time to get any painted till now. The gear on the porch is all from Hirst Arts.

and here are some WIP shots. I did the fades colouring by starting with a very pale green mix then progressively darkened it with Thraka Green wash then darkened and dirtied with Devlin Mud and Black Wash. Then all the plank lines traced with green then black washes followed by a drybrush of off white. The wooden parts were all drybrushed up from a dark brown to progressively lighter tans.

The Dwead Piwate Wuppwecht

I painted up this little fellow for the MOAB painting competition the night before, he was a fun little guy with a great face to work on.

He took 2nd place in single figure. My crashed wagon took 1st place in terrain piece/ diorama and my ork boss took 1st and best of show in monster.
