View Full Version : Dantes never ending project

My never ending project is to simply put it, paint everything I own. As it grows at a few models a week while I'm lucky to paint that many in a month I'll die with mountains of lead floating around :)

One thing I enjoy most in this hobby is looking at over peoples work so I figured I'd get mine added to the log section and hopefully inspire or help someone as well as getting feedback on my ideas.

To start off the project I'm working on most of all is my Summoner Diorama. I got given this as a gift over a year ago for Christmas. The model set is a large demon being summoned from three cauldrons, and a wizard with igor like henchman. I decided to try and do a little diorama base to go along with the models. I bought a wooden base with the edges routed down at a model show, an then cut up a load of plastic card squares making them a bit irregular and glued them down to the base. I used some greenstuff to fill the major gaps, then painted it.

The demon and wizard I painted a long time ago. I'm just starting the henchmen holding the book. The problem I'm having at the moment is deciding what to do with the base. I want it to show a little wizards lab but I'm not sure how to continue. Cookie for the person who recognises where the little table came from.

When done I'm going to remove everyone from their bases. The positioning is my rough idea for where they are going to go in the end. Any comments or ideas much appreciated. I shall get some more pictures of my on going stuff in a few more minutes.

nice mini, who produced that?

@Ornithoticus - It's made by a company called Griffon Miniatures. The whole thing only costs about 25 and I wanted to try something other than Games Workshop for a change.

Gone down to 15.00 now. Hehe.

The other project I'm working on at the moment is my Standard Bearer.

I'm currently trying to do some freehand work on his banner and I'm hating it. I suck at freehand and prefer something solid to paint. I've finished the model since taking that photo. I did a burnt effect on the damaged arm and only need to add snow to the base. I'll take some photos when I get a bit further on with the banner.

Very slow progress at the moment as my marine fish tank has nearly finished cycling so I'm spending a lot of time getting that sorted at the moment. I seem addicted to expensive hobbies.

Above is the banner for the bnner bearer already shown. My freehand sucks but it's not too bad so far. I always try and avoid it, but I figure it wont get better unless I keep trying to do it.

I have to say that banner is really nice, better than I could do, and I would sya your freehand is good enough!! I love that damaged arm, very unique!!

love the demon and wizard mini.
The blood angel is looks ace, the damaged arm is a nice touch and the banner is damn good. Im not quite sure how you can say you are crap at free hand, i would kill to be able to paint that well.

Long time no update. Stupid cats knocked over my demon and he's totally broke so I'll be leaving it for a while before I start on it again. It seems to be one of the projects that drags a lot.

Off topic, but the above is what has delayed my painting.

Last night I did finally get my Blood Angel standard bearer finished.

I have dubbed him Gaviel, bearer of the 2nd companies sacred banner. He's slightly based on a piece of art work in the Space Marine codex. C & C appreciated as always, or even the posts of 'Wow thats great'. I don't mind flattery. Hehe.

Wow, I love the BA Terminator Captain! The red is so nice, it goes very well with the black. The Sergeant's head looks amazing as well, and the writing in the midget's book is absolutely fantastic.

Very nice work, I can see you like Inks, and that you know how to use them to best effect!:)

Do a search for Harbinger Magazine. They were a splinter company from them who sold models for them.

here you go. Doesn't seem to have much on though.

The Blood Angels look great, and I wish I could freehand a banner that well! I really like that Culn conversion - may have to do one of my own.

Keep up the good work.

By the way - table in the first post is from the original Heroquest, right?

Yeah it is. Thanks for the comments. I've had some requests for commisions doing banners so I'm a happy bunny :) Ordered a light cube from eBay to improve my photos hopefully.
