“No battle plan ever survives the first contact.” My plan was to paint the 4 survivors and at least the White Lion before starting to play… but that plan went out the window when I got the game as we juuust want to do a test run and lo and behold, we are now at year 5 having defeated both the White Lion, the Screaming Antelope, the Butcher, the Manhunter and have had our first offspring: A girl with an unhealthy addiction to big axes. More about her another time. However, I finally got around to start painting and I…

Not much to say about Percival other than she did not take a long time to paint so I feel I’ve kinda cheated as I am happy with the end result. I do like non-metallic metal painting style, but there is something to be said for the spread of which you can make armour look great using metallic paints. Can’t wait to get the game. Not really sure how Percival actually work with the game itself. The whole gang together

While I wasn’t too satisfied with the Manhunter result, I am actually very pleased with this Order Knight Pinup. I can feel I am starting to get the hang of uzing glazes for shades and highlights. Far from perfect, but I am starting to understand the logic. The one thing, which was new and that I really struggled with, was creating sheer stockings. Making that translucent feel was very difficult and the end result maybe makes the stockings look too see-through, but overall I’m pleased with the result. I really like the cape and it is the first time I’ve…

Ok, I bet get out of the way that I’m not 100% happy with this paint job. It was always going to be a tough one as I’m really happy with The Lion Knight. I repainted the skin 3 times over. I tried to paint Russian style tattoo of the pattern logo and failed. His eyes looked like some stop-motion character at some point. I drybrushed based AFTER painting his boots so had to repaint them And I drybrushed metal making all the fabric nearby full of metallic sparkles. Just feels like a bunch of stupid rookie painter mistakes. Having said…

This is my first painted Kingdom Death: Monster miniature. I am quite happy with the result. It is also the first time I’ve used glazes both for shadow, for highlight and to mute contrast (inside the cape). And first time painting skin on semi-nude female models. That was much more difficult than I thought. It took me a long time to decide on a colour scheme. In the end I decided to paint him as a white knight and Googled around for white knight inspiration. I didn’t get anywhere, but then I remember that Jamie Lanister from Game of Thrones…
