Fire Elemental

Just gonna do a quick cross-over post from my lead-adventure blog, since I want to show off a just completed miniature:

A dwarf fighter desperately tries to stop the Fiery Harbinger before it immolates the entire village.
I quite like the miniature - very elegant and simple, if a little bit silly (Fire with a perfect bum -  cheesecake). It is a cool, and archetypical, design, though. I like the rising dynamic of the pose, and the slender shape contrasted by the huge wings. Good stuff.

I loosely followed this tutorial in the painting, though it didnt quite turn out as well as I had hoped (mostly due to me not having the patience to properly blend stuff).

I haven't flocked the base yet, as the varnish is still drying.

Cheers! And thanks for reading.

Painted New Lead

Just a quick post to show off some of the dwarves, painted. So far, I've got these two fighters/shieldwallers done. Great miniatures to paint. I've tried to go with a less uniformed look than I usually do, Only keeping a common red between the miniatures, to tie them together. So far, I think it works pretty well. 

Dwarven Fighters driving a tribe of lesser goblins away from an important mountain road.

New Lead

Just got a pile of stuff from the mailman: Alternative Armies relaunch of some old dwarves! As well as some of their Asgaard Barbarians.

Good stuff - Looking forward to painting them. These are some characterful chunks of lead. My only annoyance is the variance in miniature size: The Blunderbuss dwarves are quite noticably chunkier than the rest.

Profiling - Part 2: Slaaneshi Intermezzo

The silhouette was illuminated by the thunder. It stood in stark contrast to the burning sky behind it. Borges picked himself up from the mud he had been thrown into. Strangely, the silhouette didn't react to this.
Neither did it when Borges went for his war-hammer, which lay a couple of feet from where he had fallen.
Only when Borges had regained his weapon and posture, the silhouette reacted - nodding his way.
A melodious voice rang out from beneath the featureless helmet:

"Let us resume"
