Its been a very long time since I created a project log to showcase my work and get feedback, and this thread is extra special to me.
In this thread I will be documenting the creation and painting of all my own miniatures. For information on release dates, sales, pricing etc etc, please see the Official Anvil Industry Thread
This thread is about the miniatures themselves, I will be posting photos and information about the master models as I sculpt/model them, and WIP photos of paint jobs etc.
I will try to make this thread as useful as possible to the community - offering guides and insights on the techniques I use to sculpt/model, the materials I use, and (as I hopefully improve) guides to how to paint miniatures.
I hope that my fellow Warseer’s will offer me encouragement, advice, suggestions and feedback on my work, so that I can continue to improve my skills.
Enough rambling, on to the good stuff.
Today I assembled my "hot out the molds" Steam Lord Praetorian Kit.
Two complete Praetorian models.
Partially assembled, as they will be painted like this, note the Machine pistols built into the hilt of the sword!
These miniatures are for a post-apocalyptic wargame universe I'm going to elaborate on in future, but for now, a Steam Lord is a human soldier who has been spirit bonded to the soul of a long dead warrior from humanities past.
The energy of the spirit warrior flows through the mortal man, giving him vastly enhanced speed, strength and endurance.
In order for the Warrior to survive the traumatic bonding ritual, he is augmented with metallic bone grafts and electro/chemical power enhancers, and encased in an armoured exo-skeleton, normally based on the wargear and equipment originally used by the warrior spirit,
Hence, my Steam Lord Praetorians are humans who have been bonded with the warrior spirits of Roman Legionnaires.
So there are the miniatures, no one has ever painted this kit before.. I get to be the first, which is simultaneously exciting and rather dauting!
Luckily Ive got a shiny new airbrush to make the process easier!
Thanks for reading this far, expect update pictures soon!
