After seing a lot of nice project logs in this forum I decided to make one myself.

Here I'll post WIP and finished pictures of characters, special edition figures and strange things in general.Don't expect frequent updates though since I paint this figures between more mundane things (tabletop level minis). I'll try to do my best though. :D

In order to give you an idea of what's in store I have the folowing Limited Edition miniatures I'd like to assemble and paint:

-Inquisitor Lorr
-Imperial Guardsman at ease
-Eldar Bonesinger
-Malus Darkblade on foot
-Chaos Marauder
-The white Dwarf (single miniature)
-The White Dwarf aniversary model (if I don't sell it)

I also have undercoated:

-Severina & Sevora inquistor scale models
-A conversion Of the old hooded Inquisitor in Terminator Armour
-A Plasma Canon Servitor built for the FW Cyclops model and some other bitz


Stay tuned...

For starters I'm posting a FW Grey Knights Strike cruiser I painted some 6 months ago. It's my best BFG miniature so far.

I painted these night goblins last week and with a slight twist. I painted their skin in a dark tone (kinda like Black Orks) in order to make them look darker and meaner than comon gobos. I thought it would contrast nicely with their bright tongue and eyes as well. If you like you can compare the skintone with the skintone of my Oiler Grot to see the difference:

Excellent work on the metallics. :) Your painting is very smooth and crisp.

It would be nice if you could take some better lit photos, as it's hard to properly see what's going on...

Thanks McMulet! :D

I'm trying to improve my photography skills. I seem to manage pretty well when it involves "normal" figures but when it involves models like the Cruiser or these night goblins that are "elongated" in one dimension, focusing becomes difficult.

Luckily the next models I paint will be quite "normal" in shape. ;)

Nice gobbos! They're very well painted.

Yeah! Good to see you have started up a log! Some really great work there, and I look forward to more.

Thanks for the feedback guys. :D I think the next miniature I'll paint will be.... the multipart Epic Space Marine! :wtf:

I know it was stupid to spend 5 for that mini on E-bay but I just had to have it. There's sth special about those Special Editions. :rolleyes:

Long time no see...

I thought I was going to let this topic die but then I have painted 2 minis recently at a local even where I was doing painting demos and I thought I should share them with you. First is a Dark Eldar Hellion which is the only Dark Eldar mini I have ever painted:

Coming next is the familiar from the new Chaos Terminator Lord model. I'll be using him as a Familiar in my Inquisitorial Retinue...

Love it. Nice to see some really mixed mini's. I especially like that strike cruiser.

Some of the old metal minis are surprisingly good. And the casting quality is sometimes better than the one found in the new minis...

A friend of mine gave me the old Tigurius mini lately and the casting quality and ammount of detail are realy amazing.

I'm glad you like the mix of minis Satan (nice username BTW). I'm more of an individual mini painter so it's my way of having a break from painting minis for my armies. That's why my armies take so long to finish. :D

So it's finished except from varnish and static grass. Asembling the components was realy tricky. I was afraid something would breack but at the end all was well. :D

What you think?
