Where the f**k is Mika?

Sorry lads - life as an Art Director sometimes gets in the way of what you are doing. Also I have been painting some figs that I hope will lead to better things for me :-).

Anyhow... just updated a new tutorial for BoLS (teaser below) that I hope will go live soon, second part is to follow mid next week and I want to do a Christmas themed snow base tutorial this weekend as well (not like I need to talk to my family or anything right? :-)).

My prayers are with you! Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Teaser for what I am painting now

New Warmachine/Hordes channel

My friend Greg has a new youtube channel up focused on tactics - Greg is a great player and you should check his channel out. He has some great ideas on how to go about describing list building, tactics and battle reports:

I am in the middle of painting a few pieces and work is being a b**ch so I won't update that much until I have something real to show.

Working on two new tutorials for BoLS as well.

Cool stuff today

Some cool stuff I got going on right now.

I am painting this bust by ANAKRON - it is great but a little intimidating.. I am trying out some new color combination's and  ways of shading. It is the first bust I paint and these things don't hide a thing - you have to work on your blends like crazy!

A trollblood that I am painting (TT) for my friend who will use it as a substitute Champion hero. I am almost done with this one which means I get to finish his Extreme Blitzer next :-)

Gavin at Tor Gaming is a great guy and he sent me two sets of his minis for me to paint - I have some great plans for these little buggers (and will take cutters and saw to them) but that will come this weekend :-)  (see pictures of these painted by atacam here and here.) The rules are available for free and hopefully I can get to play this soon!

Last is something that will be real dangerous to the wallet - Super Dungeon Explorer from Soda Pop. This game caught my eyes right away since I was brought up playing 8-bit NES and Master System back in Sweden. These minis are right out of these games... There are very little details so far but this is one of the "evil" guys. It is one of the promotion figures that are 20% larger than the final production minis will be - this guy has more pewter in his shield than most 28mm figures do..

Jinn stones for Alkemy

Super cheap jinn stones - I ordered fake Chinese coins from here and used left over Confrontation Age of Ragnarok bases (that obviously was never going to get used... :-)).

1 hour of work (excluding drying times) and I am happy with the result:

First two models from Studio McVey's new project.

Love these models!

Concept by Sam Wood, Sculpted by Kev White. Painted by Studio McVey - that is a pretty awesome "tri-fecta". Keeping my fingers crossed there is a game and not just minis! :-)

Studio McVey launches new game (and line)

I love the resin line from Studio McVey and the McVey's that are behind it - not only is Mike one of the friendliest people around - he was one of the main reasons for me wanting to be good at pain ting (and still trying to be good) to this day.

Check the press release for the game out: Here or visit the McVey store and buy some super nice, high quality miniatures now You want to click this now!


Alkemy competition submission

This was my submission for the dragonpainting Alkemy competition, I tried to take inspiration from the tutorial by JBT (Found here) and try some of his methods... some of them are easier than others but for pure gaming minis I am real happy with the result.

New Mini on Cmon

This was the model I entered into the 2010 Baltimore GD. I am going to put up some more pictures and 360 views on BoLS tomorrow (together with some of my thoughts about how I made it.

Finished Inquisitor

Tank WIPs

I have tried so many times to paint space marine Rhinos and Land Raiders (when I started playing 40k it was called Rouge trader and there was no tanks back then - only instructions on how to build your own baneblade using plasticard :-)). And I have never really enjoyed it. It has been forced and even the original Rhino (tiny) felt like a choir.

But I got three leman russes the other day and I have not been able to stop painting them for my DKOK force - I just put everything else on hold and went at it. I think it might have to do with the LR being more akin to real tanks.. almost a little retro a la WWII... that I enjoy it so much.

Also - I got these of BT (as menitoned before from chadbacca) and they came with the minesweeper bart attached... I broke it off and magnetized the hell out of it. Picking up a model and the part and just hearing the click as the part fits is almost like porn - so darn satisfying :-)

From the painting table

First two DKOK veterans assembled for painting

Back view

So when I went to Games Day I got smitten by something I have been looking at for a while - the Death Korps of Krieg... my new goal is to have a full painted (but small) army in time for next years GD to have it compete in Armys on Parade.

The problem with this force is the cost - but some of it can be negated by buying "standard" tanks and try to just use the specialty models.  Still I am hunting everywhere for cast aways and just from the past week I have managed to grab both 3 Leman Russ tanks (thank you very much chadbacca on BT) and a unit of Grenadiers (grahamma on BT and mrgraham on dragonpainting is a real nice guy). I will be looking everywhere to grab more stuff but because my list now includes 6 different armies for 5 different games I won't be able to get it all from FW directly - if you got some stuff: please let me know since I will probably want it :-)

I know it is ridiculous and that I shouldn't care - but this one got up on teh top of the last 7 days and currently has a 9.1 on CMON:
