    Welcome to warseer!

    Great to see some specialist games stuff, always a pleasure to see Bloodbowl figures painted so nicely!

    The felix is also really nice and really stands out for me.

    Fantastic work and quite a diverse and eclectic collection!

    Thanks again for all the kind words, really has helped keep me motivated!

    Here's a small update, done a bit more on felix.





    Trousers are done. Cloak needs a bit more work, could do with red ink glazes, to take away the orangeyness.
    There's a bit more depth to it IRL, I think the flash has washed it out.
    I'll probably finish the skin next (my wife said he looked like he'd been tango'd!).

    Thanks for looking!

    Keep the comments comin!

    hi,
    IMO the orangeyness is ok. I would add more shades (mix with some brown), to make the cloak less flat.

    Re: BoyMilla's log of this and that!

    Hi all,

    @sea.man, thanks, I may try that. It does look better IRL, I snapped the pictures in a hurry so the lighting was a bit rubbish, I think the flash has made it look a lot flatter.

    I was thinking of trying a thin green wash on the cloak for shading as it's opposite on the colour wheel.
    Not really tried it before, but the technique does interest me!

    Anyone got any advice on this?

    Not been in the mood for painting last few evenings tho so I made a start on the dev's.

    Here's what I've got so far, some of it's just blu-tacked for now.



    My brother's got some spare missile launchers so I'll go for 4 in the squad.
    I also had some spare legs so I did these.



    I'll add these to the 2 tactical squads I've got in progress.

    And lastly, Here's a plastic chaplain for the army.



    I was quite pleased with how this turned out. He's blu-tacked to his base for the time being, I'm gonna build it up a bit, add some detail.

    Hopefully do some painting tonight, try to finish off Felix.

    Thanks for looking!

    Re: BoyMilla's log of this and that!

    Thanks guys,

    @Almindale. Far from just being polite mate. Love your exodites!

    @DarkstarSabre. I will be selling them!

    Well, I did more on Felix last nite. Did face , hair, sword etc.
    Not quite finished but definitely getting there.





    The natural light was pretty good today, think this is the closest I've got so far to how it actually looks.
    Bit more work to do on the cloak still, need to graduate the shading a bit more. I added a few deeper shades to it.
    Need to finish the eyes, I always get scared at this stage of messing things up.

    Pretty happy with how he's turning out. I'll make a start on Gotrek once he's finished.

    C&C welcome.

    Great Painting!

    I love felix, the white and blue pants look awesome, and that red cloak looks great as well. How did you go about painting his face?

    Re: BoyMilla's log of this and that!

    @sea.man. Thanks mate! Not sure if I'm totally happy yet but it's definitely getting there!

    @The Laughing God. Thanks, the model been a lot of fun to paint! As for the flesh I started with Dwarf flesh, followed by a wash of watered down Dark flesh.
    Then I highlighted with tanned flesh, dwarf flesh, dwarf flesh/elf flesh mix, then very fine with elf flesh.

    I kept going back over it with washes of dwarf flesh/dark flesh mix to tie together each highlight stage till I was happy.

    Sorry it's quite long winded, I just experimented with washes and highlights until it looked ok.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Gundam,

    I'm glad everyone likes him! Well, he's finished! I'll post pics over the weekend.
    I've made a start on Gotrek as well, probably post a WIP too.

    Good work milla,
    I look forward to see the dev's finished

    Re: BoyMilla's log of this and that!

    Thanks,

    @Putty, thanks! I'll certainly try

    @cerealk, thanks man, dev's will probably take a while. I tend to paint a marine when I need a change from stuff I should be doing! And I've got a big back log of stuff to get thru!

    Not just a shameless bump, the Night Goblin team is up for sale.
    Have a look HERE if you're interested!

    I didn't get round to taking a pic of Felix yet, busy weekend!
    I'll probably do it later in week!

    Thanks for looking everyone!

    Re: BoyMilla's log of this and that!

    A quick update for you.

    Took a pic of Felix, not the best light but you get the idea!



    I think I'm finished with him, but I keep noticing things that I'm not completely happy with. I'll probably leave it at this, otherwise he'll never be done.

    I also finished off the first assault marine.




    Happy with this one!

    Next up will be Gotrek, trying to get the beard right atm. Once I get that right I think the rest of the model will fall into place.
    Anyone got any good recipes for painting slayer beards?

    Also, coming soon, I've got the Orks from the Black Reach set that I'll be working on. Wanna try to do a quick turn around to sell on.

    Thanks for looking, comments more than welcome!

    Glad to see you finishing Felix, which looks great!
    Face is superb, looks natural (the scar and blue eye(!)). Sword is a bit to dark, but it`s may be light effect

    I just recieved my Gotrek & Felix, so I`ll be trying to match you high standard

    Yup, and the markings can't even tell if they are transfers or freehand.
    Holy crap indeed!

    Loving your style, the Human BB team in particular are stunning - always impressed when people manage to get that really crisp white to work out.

    BTW how did you do the power sword on the Sergeant?
