So I thought I'd share with you all everything I've been painting. This will include my models as well as commissions. The photos will be on the painting table with the phone until a unit is complete. Then I'll take some better photos.

First off is a Killa Kan for for my Ork army. Sadly I don't really like 40K any more and I've got a 4000 point Chaos Marine army sititng in a box so I'm painting these up to sell.

A few of you might have seen my Yellow Skaven Army, and I'm quite fond of yellow. So I'm doing this army in the Bad Moon colours.

A nice flat coat of yellow combined with some good weathering, coupled with some dramatic blood effect and a simple but effective base. This will look awesome as an army

Cheers. I wanted something simple but effective. I've noted I need to re-do the feet. They look bare!

So I've finished 3 test models for a Death Guard commission I'll be working on from Monday. Not seen many of the Forge World bits but I am looking forward to these! Painted in a few different ways and schemes but the common one was dark and dirty and weathered as we expect these guys to be! I think I'll paint the eyes a dark orange maybe? Wopuld love your feedback too to help my painting improve.

5 more Stormvermin completed. I just need to finish another 13 for a tournament mid June. So loads of time. Might also have a Plague Furnace in the process of painting too :)

Time to continue the Death Guard.

Real nice Nihilakh Necrons there Elfordminis! Is that a GW base you used for the Tomb Stalker, or something different?

elfordminis

No its a bit of 2-3mm wood cut in a circle!

Just finished this model. I wanted to see how quick I could do it to a good gaming standard. Took 75 minutes!

Everything you have painted is extremely good - love the Necrons (soft spot for Necrons :) ) but your Nurgle Marines are just brilliant !

Well it wont be because of the quality of your painting as that is not in question ! :)

Warseer is large so sometimes it takes a while for people to stumble in and look about - your title made me wonder in but equally it might make some not look.

Keep up the great work and I am sure others will post!

All looking very nice as usual ! My only gripe is the left flying base - it would look a lot better if the stand was integrated into the base just like the right one (which is really nicely executed) - it does not look right.

elfordminis
07-06-2012, 13:43
Yeah I agree actually. Will see if I can change it

Very cool, love the dirty yellow it looks good. The orks defo got the best flyer during the last wave thats for sure.

I agree. I think they are fantastic. The other two are a bit lame in my opinion.

Some nice painting in here, as some others have said the Death Guard are amazing (75 minutes for that Daemon Prince? Seriously!) but I think the new Ork flier is at the same level of awesomeness. Looking forward to more!

Cheers,

Wow you got them done pretty quickly, nice work. I love the wing designs.

Small nitpick would be that your weathering should be a bit more focussed - ie weather along the edges and where things are more likely to get worn to enhance the realism.

But like I say, small nitpick when you got them done so fast!

Also saw you got a reference on tale of painters which is cool :)

I understand what you mean. When I come to do some more I'll be sure to get those areas you've said.

Yeah I've been referenced a few times. Get retweeted by Games Workshop on twitter and my Skaven army has been on the GW blog and won Best Painted Army awards at tournaments so I'm really happy with my painting as a whole!

Great plog. Love the Ork flyers, those look great. The yellow and black, combined with the dirt really makes the model come to life. Also, nice work on the engine/throne. I especially like the bone coloured plateaus, looks very striking!

Nice to see your work here as well. Brilliant planes and your fantasy stuff is equally awesome. Keep it up!
