Ordinary Wizarding Levels

I've got a baby due in October and I thought I would paint a model for her to keep in her room as she grows up. Just a little something so she knows her dad was thinking about her while she was cooking in the old womb. Anyway I decided on this sweet giant owl from CMON.




Night One

Night Two

Night Three


I've still got a few areas to finish up/touch up but it's about 90% done. Next I need to get some snow on the base and figure out what I'm going to do as far as a display case.

Kayazy Progress

So I didn't get to game this afternoon. Instead, I painted. Here's where the Kayazy stand right now.

by the way, I hate painting eyes & faces. Why can't all models be undead? :p

Anyways, there's still more work on the metals to do, and highlight the front, and highlight up all the cloaks to be like the underboss'. The fur will probably get another drybrush to differentiate it from the dirt, etc.

More Kayazy!

I'm still working on the new cloak for 1 guy, but the rest are all done. (more pics here)

I'm still debating taking off the fur around this guy's hood cause he looks too much like an eskimo and not an assassin to me. We'll see though.

Anyways, I'll probably be working on the cloaked crusader for another day or two before everybody gets the primer.

Kayazy Assassins Conversion or Eskimo?

Like many other warmachine players out there, I dislike the Kayazy Assassin sculpts (excluding the Underboss, which is quite boss). To fix it, I ordered some druid & kayazy heads to do a head swap.

I also wanted to try and make them fit with the underboss better, so I figured sculping some fur onto their cloaks and possibly hoods would be better. The lesson I've learned? Furry hoods = eskimos :p Lucky for me I only did the hood fur on one.

Also, the pose on this guy just kills me. I never knew there was such a flamboyant assassin. Anyways, I'll be sure to post more when I've got stuff done.

Things are always better with a little bit of grass

So Rob Hawkins over at Privateer Press made some pretty cool little things on their terrain blog (Cryxian Bile Reservoir).

Now I'm not planning on doing that complicated of a terrain piece anytime soon. However, I think that there's a lot of little things that I can do to spruce up my bases. So I just wanted to show how my multijack looks now.

So I'll probably be going back and adding some tall grasses and maybe green goo to a bunch of my bases.
