Kamahru’s Champion and Kamahru’s Incarnate I started painting Grakkha as my first Confrontation miniature. However, his skin is very difficult with all the bumps and lumps so I put him on the backburner and decided to paint the simpler Kolghor instead. That was almost a year ago and the unfinished Grakkha has been staring me down ever since! So this week I decided to grab him by his ugly orc ears and finally put brush to metal and finish him. Plate mail hell As it turned out the learnings from painting Kolghor’s skin helped a lot. However, painting the small…

I started painting Grakkha as my first Confrontation miniature. However, his skin is very difficult with all the bumps and lumps so I put him on the backburner and decided to paint Kolghor instead. This is the first time in many years I have spent so long on a miniature and I am really happy with the result. The armbands turned a bit red’der than planned but red ones go faster we all know this. I really like his hat which turned out to be a bit lighter than I planned but I really like the colour as it fits…

Colourscheme Orcs of the Behemoth miniatures seems to be inspired by warriors from old Tibet and Confrontation orcs in general seems to have a close affinity with nature so I want to keep the colourscheme as much as possible to earthy tones. What I want to avoid is all the orcs having the same skin colour, so I’ll try and use a mixutre of various greens, blues and a bit of purple to make them look different.

My wife kindly let me use her hobby photo studio. The Asadars are the first elves to be completed following my quick-to-paint plan and it was fast and I am happy with the result. The only thing was I found them too monochrome so I re-painted the swords from being light blueish grey as the armour to have a light marble effect instead. I also change the handles of the weapons to gold and added a deep purple colour to the … helmet hair (what is that called in English !?!).

Yes, I know I planned my Cynwäll as a fast paint-for-play army, but Soïm is one fantastic miniature so I did spend somewhat longer on him. He follows the basics I am using for my whole army, but he differs from the other troops as he is wearing next to no armour (or clothes) so it gave me the opportunity to make more out of his skin. I painted his body a greenish grey and highlight it with several rounds of skin colour and skin colour mixed with white, to give him a colder, leaner look. While the rest of…

Colourscheme I don’t like playing with an unpainted army so while painting my Orcs of the Behemoth (where each miniature takes quite a while to paint) I have started an army choose to be quick to paint. For this paint-to-play army I have chosen Cynwäll Elves; Only need few models, they are cool and I have an idea for a quick paintscheme: Prime all white. Paint all armour light blueish grey, ink it with a darker grey and highlight with the light blueish grey followed by white. All clothes, capes etc gets a wash of light, greenish grey, then highlighted…

Confrontation by Rackham has existed as game for quite a while at the time writing this (sept, 2008) but I never got into the game as other games got in the way (first VOR, then Dark Age, then Warmachine). This is actually quite strange as I have always really really love the Rackham miniatures esspecially since they remind me of my favorite fantasy film which “The Labyrinth”. If you don’t know why, see the photos below. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I hooked up with Mocaiv and Bootcamp to play some VOR as the game is set to return…
