Hi.

Here are some of my painted miniatures and work in progress. They're in no particular order or theme - I'm usually very inconsistent when it comes to planning what I have to paint. Hope you enjoy it, though.

By the way, apologies for the camera work. I'm still learning the basics of using light in photography...


Warriors of Chaos Tzeentch Sorcerer Lord, Games Workshop


Goblin Warrior, Scibor Miniatures


Forest Troll, Cavalcade / Dragonblood Miniatures


Dwead Piwate Wuppwecht, Malifaux

VERY COOL STUFF...of course, now there are a few minis that I need to get, you cruel person, You. The Dwead Piwate & the Goblin are hands down favorites, but all are VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Doing pieces randomly is liberating, although I have a tendency to then build War Bands around the individual pieces. Suspect

He he he. Thanks for the nice comment!

Well, because of lack of time and energy, I've been concentrating mainly on individual pieces. But my long term plan is to have all the other Scibor goblins done (14 in total) and some more Malifaux minis. I've been also experimenting with white undercoat, but so far haven't been able to cope very well. Too fiddly for me (maybe I'm just too used to black undercoat). No

Hey, thanks for the nice comments!

I decided to change the name of the title, as I still haven't finished enough miniatures to make a gallery as such. Instead, I'll just be posting some work in progress of my latest stuff. Apologies for the extreme diversity on themes and miniatures. I just can't stick to one thing at the time! clown

I had a few experiments with green stuff, and modified a few goblins for my pirate theme (heavily inspired by Warboss Kurgan's creations): http://boringmordheimforum.forumieren.com/t475-warbosskurgan-s-orc-pirates

Since I had a few dozens of unassembled GW gnoblars and a few more goblins and gretchin, I thought I could give it a go and do a few very simple conversions.



I'm also working on a pilgrim warband and thought this guy would look better as a human with a very long beard and nose. He's a Hordes Trollbloods Stone Scribe Elder.



Spot the differences... Smile



Also, I've finally managed to get all my Wendigos painted - bases still to be done, though. They weren't as daunting as I had feared. Just a simple combination of greys and white and off they go. They are beautiful models from Crocodile Games.



Finally, a few unfinished civilians for my medieval town. First, this Shadow Tower Raven Keeper. The miniature is so well done, especially his face. I can't believe that the sculptor managed to give such a human feel to such a tiny little model. I shall be using him as the town sheriff.



And some Hell Dorado civilians. They are borderline 25/28mm I would say. The girl was especially difficult to paint, since she was a bit on the tiny side. The angry baker was a nightmare to get the eyes painted correctly. In the end, I just decided to put a red spot on the left eye, and pretend he had been injured or something...

Overall, they can still blend in with the rest of my 28mm villagers.



The actual models came in the same box, called Damned Rank and File, from the Mercenaries range.

I'll have all of these based soon - quite a tedious task, I must confess...

That's quite an array of different minis that are all VERY COOL. ..the unifying factor. thumbsup
For some reason or other the Goblins remind me of Courier du Bois from the French & Indian Wars...this is a plus with moi.
The Hordes Fellow looks much better after your improvements; the nose & beard are EXCELLENT...he looks rather druidish.
The Wendigos are BEAUTIFULLY DONE. They're a cooler looking version of G.W.'s Beasty Guys.
The Lad with the Raven is VERY NICELY DONE...the Raven fits with the Knightly Order of Mordheim & their Raven Barracks.
AND the Townies are JUST PLAIN COOL...the Fellow in the middle reminds me of some disreputable old man I know. clown

I have to say, I am a big fan of Joao's all-over-the-place drive to maniacally collect anything and everything that takes his fancy.

He's also a very good painter!

Surprised and glad to see you're branching out into a bit of sculpting. It's looking really good!

Thanks guys! Really helps to get positive feedback and knowing how to make sense of all this wacky paraphernalia!
@ DeafNala: who is the disreputable old man you know? Wink
@ WarbossKurgan: I hope to get started with the pirates as soon as possible (but I might get stuck with some other random project in the meantime). Smile
@ Tim: "all-over-the-place drive to maniacally collect anything and everything" is the best way to describe my approach to the hobby!

I'll be posting photos tonight, so watch this space. Smile

Hello!

I've finally managed to base some of the miniatures I painted recently and get some terrain sorted. This took a few hours but it was worth it.

First of all, a portrait of the "artist".

My girlfriend took this picture while I was painting a mausoleum of GW's Garden of Morr. By then, the house had been turned upside down as I was batch painting and basing 22 trees, dozen of terrain pieces and around 50 miniatures. No, it's not easy to live with me.

Moving on. Here are the completed Wendigos, from Crocodile Games.

I might be using these ten fellows are Beastmen proxies for Mordheim.

Three GW Night Goblin Fanatics.



I might not have any use for these guys, but they look great and were quite straightforward to paint.

Speaking of fanatics, here are a few Empire Flagellants.


I didn't put as much effort on the detail as I wanted. This is what happens when I do batch-painting on human models (always trouble with the skin...).

And a "bit" of undead stuff, which was lurking around for quite a while.

Mordheim Ghouls, from GW - I got them with a Wraith that I had ordered from eBay. They came as very handy extras.


Vampire Counts Skeletons, from GW. Easy and fast to paint.



Mummy Servant Priests, from West Wind Productions. I love their dynamic poses and they really look good with the rest of the undead bunch.


And some undead terrain.

Cemetery Chapel, from Ziterdes.

It was surprisingly easy to paint (mostly with drybrushing techniques) and has a fair level of detail. I added four GW gargoyles to adorn the building. The other advantage of Ziterdes buildings is definitely the sturdiness of the model. Its hard foam makes it almost indestructible (as opposed to resin buildings - unfortunately...).

And still on the topic of foam, here's an old Citadel graveyard.



It came pre-painted and flocked with grass (in some annoying spots too), so I sprayed it with black and repainted the whole thing. The paint scheme was very similar to the one used on the chapel.

Adding to these, I painted GW Garden of Morr. This is by far the best terrain they've done since Storm of Magic came out, in my opinion. And not as tricky to paint as I thought. Here's a quick shot of one of the fences (with the inevitable skulls).


Some of the extra bits that came with the kit were put on a scenic base. This can be placed on the periphery of the graveyard or even in the middle of a spooky forest.


Speaking of spooky forest, I went a bit mad and got myself 12 Citadel Trees and put random terrain bits on them, like some tomb stones from the zombies kit.


Finally (boy, you're brave if you're still reading this!), after a long interregnum in my medieval town project, I saw this amazing thread (http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=32806.0) which made me go back to my civilians. It also gave me loads of inspiration for colour schemes, especially for the civilians clothes. Some of the following miniatures are using green, red, yellow or blue to create a more colourful feel to the town.

And here they are:
Sheriff and deputy (like Bob Marley's song).

The sheriff is a model from Dark Sword miniatures called Shadow Tower Raven Keeper. His evil helper is called King's Advisor, from Mega Miniatures (their models are much better than what they look like on the site. And quite cheap too).
These guys are going to be wandering around the town, making sure they punish as many poor civilians as they can.

Scribe's helper.


He came in a blister pack with a wizard from Mirliton Miniatures. The fact that is carrying loads of books and scrolls made me think that he could go well with the scribes that I already have in my town.

Minstrel, from Hasslefree Miniatures.

The town was needing some nice tunes and melodies to entertain the locals, so why not giving them this singing chap?

Tavern drunkards.

The one on the left is some old Citadel miniature whose name I can't remember at the moment. The one in the middle is one of the fellows from Mordheim's Frenzied Mob. And the one on the right is a Bar fighter with bottle from Black Cat Bases. They all go well together and their unifying element is indeed the bottle(s). You can only expect trouble from these three.

Peasants.

These came from Lead Adventure's range called Bruegelburg. They are exceptionally sculpted and were a joy to paint.
I just love the amount of unnecessary detail they've put into these models (including the cheeky rat going round the lady's dress).


Apple Seller.

This is a very nice model from Alionas Miniatures. I got this one after seeing Cianty's excellent townsfolk from his Gierburg project: http://cianty-tabletop.blogspot.com/search/label/Gierburg?updated-max=2010-01-30T14:07:00%2B01:00&max-results=20
In fact, the painting tips from Tom on that article were crucial for me when I painted the apple vendor.

Fishwife, from Alionas Miniatures.

Another addition to the collection via Cianty. She is such a fine sculpt, that I couldn't help myself from getting her. Also, my medieval market was lacking some fish, so she was a must to get!

Here's one of her sons.

He came originally with Mordheim's Witch Hunters' pack, but I saw him more as an angry fishmonger, so there!

And the other son, who came from Mordheim's Frenzied Mob, completes the fishmongers gang.

He's always getting in trouble with the fish as you can see.

Last, but not least, the puppeteer.

Another Mordheim Witch Hunter. I chopped his weapon off his staff and placed the head of a monk to make up a puppet. The play could be called "The Angry Monk and the Deadly Bishop".

And this is it.

Next up, a bit of outdoors photography.

After the "studio" shots, I took the whole gang to a trip in the garden, where I could get some natural light for some atmospheric pictures.

Starting off with the town and its growing population.







The peasants gossip near the main town square. Probably on the topics of cost of food or clothes...








The drunkards decide to mess with the wrong guy: the local baker!


The brothers get into a fight with their own fish. Their mom watches them and shakes her head in disapproval.


The market bustling with all sorts of townsfolk.

The spooky cemetery on the outskirts of the town. As you can see, it's not the best place to wander around on your own...


















A group of flagellants marches relentlessly in the middle of the woods.


The Wendigos in their natural habitat, being led by their mighty chieftain and shaman.






And the goblin fanatics, with plenty of room to play with their balls (I'm not being rude here).


I hope you've enjoyed it. Please let me know if there is anything I should change or improve on the painting side of things.

That is INCREDIBLE; all your diverse little projects seem to have all come together to form an AMAZING collection that somehow work WONDERFULLY together...you've been busier than a one armed paper hanger. FANTASTICALLY WELL DONE! thumbsup

I think I'll go back & browse my way through them all again...maybe a couple of time so I don't miss anything . Shocked

Obviously these pictures are plain incredible – especially the
outdoor spooky shots.


But do you realise you’ve been very spare on your pictures
of the Garden of Morr. You’ve only provided glimpses and I’d like to see a lot
more.




And don’t forget your little Garden of Morr mausoleums fit
over some of the graves in the GW graveyard. Try it!

Great collection you have going there mate, some fantastic paint jobs, the winner for me is the apple seller, but its all really nice.

I think those Mummies are going to get ordered.
How do the West Wind figs scale with GW?

Wow! This is quite some feedback - certainly more than I can handle! Smile

OK, on with the replies:

@ gewaltatron and qboid: the mummies were a very good addition to my undead gang. And they weren't that expensive. As for the scale, they certainly scale with GW. Here's an example:



In fact, most of the Gothic Horror range from West Wind is definitely worth checking as they have tons of different characters and monsters that you won't find anywhere else.

@ Yak, 5pointer, mr_harold and floedebolle: thanks a lot! The town and its inhabitants is quite an enduring project but it's coming along. When I see a miniature and decide to get it, it's usually because I saw a potential "narrative" for the model. The fishmongers are a good example of it. All of them came from different packs.

@ Cianty: thank you for the great inspiration!

@ timplanet: it wasn't enough that you came to the house and check out the terrain for yourself, you want me to go back to the freezing cold to take some more pictures, you evil man! Smile
Anyway, I will take a few more photos of the Garden of Morr as soon as I get the chance.

@ DeafNala: "one armed paper hanger" was a funny thing to picture.
The town itself is mainly composed by Ziterdes houses, GW buildings, GW fortress and a couple of Conflix houses. I also have an amazing Tabletop World house, but it's still unfinished (surprise, surprise...)
Just like with the Garden of Morr, I will need to take a few outdoors pics, which may take a while.

Anyway, thank you so much for checking this stuff out. I can't promise I will update this regularly, but I can always try!
