Ettin it finished

It has taken a while but I have finally finished the Ettins, it has taken lots of small painting sessions but I am finding this to be a very productive and motivating system.

Okay so the glue isn't dry yet but all the paint is!

Ettin on with it!

With today being my last opportunity to sit down for a prolonged period to paint for a few weeks I thought I might just post up today's progress on the Ettins. 
It really doesn't look like there is much effort to get that skin tone but that represents about five to six coats of different tones. 

I still need to wash it and reapply a couple of tones to get the full depth but so far  pretty happy.

Mainly fur and wood for the rest but there are a could of opportunities for some colours to make the details pop which should add some visual spice.
May the dice be with you!

Elementals my dear gamers!

I have managed to finish the Elementals and they have turned out a lot better than I thought they would when I last posted.
They pose quite the painting issue due to the need to have four colour schemes on one model

Finishing a fishy business!

Here are the finished Merriods...

The shading and highlights have a greater contrast but the lighting doesn't show it up too well.

Decent progress on Descent models!

Here is my progress so far on the Merriods for Descent. 

Whilst the colour scheme is pretty standard, i.e. follows the art on the card for the model, I am really pleased with it and think these are my favourite models so far. Some blue wash, some highlights and a mix of matt and a decision on matt or gloss varnish (I really like the idea of them looking wet but matt would keep them consistent with the others) and we are done!
P.s for the observant reader, no the Vallejo blue in the background is not the paint I used.

Finally finished some models...and started new ones!

Good morning peeps! I finally found a few regular periods of time to make painting progress... lunch hour and when the boy is being put to bed! Thus I can give a long over due update on my painting progress.

Getting older and going grey

Just a quick post to say GO GREY! As I have posted before I have been painting my Descent models and wasn't really satisfied with the black undercoat I had applied, particularly as I found it hard to see the details. Having watched some painting guides I noticed a trend for using grey undercoats so gave it a try. So far I am loving it. Using the GW grey spray and it is matt, smooth and shows up the details of the (rather small) models really well. Looking forward to getting some paint on them as I feel that the grey should mean I don't need as many layers to get a solid hue.
