Evocators on Dracolines Step by Step Part 2

Image
 Howdy! Been a while. I just finished up my Evocators, so here's part two of the step by step process. When last we left off, the beastie himself was almost finished.   The claws on this sort of model are always fun to paint because they're super simple and in my opinion look really good. I base coat with Rakarth Flesh and wash with Soft Tone, then a little highlight of Pallid Wych Flesh. Very pleased with how it came out.       Also did the teeth, tongue, and eyes. Can't say the gums are my cleanest work, but it really helps the model to look more alive and finished. Plus I like doing eyes on bigger monsters because they don't take as much precision and I don't like leaving the eyes unfinished. During this time I also painted the straps brown with my go to dark brown which I use for basically everything that needs to be brown (vallejo charred brown). The teeth of the beastie are grey, and since I put a bit too much grey on my palette, I figured I'd do this grey

Evocators on Dracolines Step By Step (part 1)

I've mostly been painting Stormcast Eternals recently, and I was excited to add these fine folks to my army. I like the models and I like the rules, and I figured I would do a step by step post showing my progress. I wanted to have a bit more to show before posting but I've not been too well and haven't got any painting done in the past couple of days so I decided to just throw up what I have lest this blog die on the vine.  There are two of these and I am painting them side by side but the process is the same so I am only photographing one as I go. Here we start with a Corax White undercoat. I normally prime my Stormcasts with a mid-grey primer but the dracoline has a lot of light tones so it's easier to work over the off-white base.  It will also be helpful when I get to the face which on this model is exposed flesh. The first thing to do is the metal armour on the man himself. I always start with this step as priming light means you really do need to get into all th

Painting Timeline

 Despite being into minis games for somewhere around 6 or 7 years, I only properly started enjoying painting within the last 18 months. So as you can imagine, I started putting in a lot more effort and my results became considerably better. So the blog has some more content on its first day, here is a little timeline of some of my painting to give you an idea of how I've improved over time. Below is a selection of models that I would consider to be representative of my best painting at any particular time.     Starting off above, we have Lenny from Malifaux on the left. He was essentially the first model I ever painted. Technically as a kid I painted some models, we used to get the Lord of the Rings magazine, and I had some 40k models too but I never really painted properly. Looking back, I don't think I did too terrible of a job considering what I was working with. At this point I painted with -- and I am not making this up -- unthinned acrylics for traditional canvas paintin

Stormcast Eternals Liberators Prime & Sequitor Prime

 Howdy! I am Doggo and this is my painting bloggo. I figured I'd start up a blog just to keep track of my painting exploits, and what better place to start than the models I finished today? So for the inaugral post here let's start with some pretty basic guys. You'll be seeing a lot of this colour scheme in the coming posts as I have been working my way through the Mortal Realms magazine over the last year and a half. It's what got me properly into painting, and I've been quite enjoying Age of Sigmar 3rd edition. Left & Right: Liberators Prime, Centre: Sequitor Prime        The first thing you'll notice is of course that the bases are not done. This is because I mostly like to do bases in batches, but you'll see the basing I settled on for my Stormcast Eternals sometime soon I'm sure. Otherwise, these guys follow the regular colour scheme that I have been using, mostly chosen on a whim a while back when I decided to start painting them up. I had fair
