What else have you painted?

Recommended Posts

So, it IS a bit of a funny thing to finally see a Star Wars FFG game that really requires painting... X Wing and Armada don’t really need much brushwork.  

 

But now there are so many new painters, and so many people coming in from more paint-heavy games with skills and experience!

 

So, wanted to ask... who are the other regular miniature painters here?  How long have you been at it?  What have you painted?  Samples?  Share, please!:)

Soul, I actually just helped start a company that sells a LOT of 15mm modern armor, so if there is anything special you are looking for, let me know... even a one off or whatever!

 

Imothep, very nice!  Loved that empire knight head on that base.  Great looking marines.  Oh, and that titan is sharp:)

Oh, and I’ve painted up a bunch myself!  Thirty years painting, back to early Airfix and now up through... well, now!  Tons of historicals at all different scales... walking dead, sailing ships, armada, moderns, space marines... everything!

Ive kept a pretty active, photo heavy blog over the last eight or so years...

Started painting in the early 90's with warhammer 40k, and have been painting ever since, although some years the output has only been 1 or 2 minis

 

Anyway here are some things I painted in the last few years for the annual lead painter League over at the lead Adventure Forum

And these were mostly painted around the time The Phantom Menace was in the theater, and you might recognize the inspiration for my Vampire counts :P

Some great stuff in here.

I was into Lord of the Rings minis when the movies were out, then got back into it with the Hobbit. Painting was 95% of the attraction for me.Took a break though as I was studying for a few years and very busy. 

Dusted off the brushes last week to see if I till had the knack.

Ohhh, nice object source lighting!  That's a tough trick, but one that might really work with so many lightsabers around...

Thanks. Thats why I picked this mini as a tester. A good trick is to use complelentary colours in the shadows where the light isnt reaching. In this case blues and navys in the shadow to compliment the orange. Crimson inks for the transitions.

Yeah I love those old beakies, Rogue Trader era spacemarines  were the best spacemarines ever made, and it went all downhill after that :P

My favourite one is the one in the back in the middle that looks like John mclane from Die Hard, all bruised up and bandaged, a proper mini with real character

@Lord Ashram the set up for your gaming stuff and historic paraphernalia is seriously so awesome. oh and the painting is nice too I guess :P

 

Thanks man!  Yeah, I've spent YEARS gathering all that stuff, and I always wanted a space that felt half museum, half game space.  It's my favorite place in the world:)

Can I ask what game these minis are from?

Not any specific game, just generic Sci-fi

The three on the left are all from the Astropolis range of Lead Adventure Miniatures:

The 2 on the left are from the Pulp range of Statuesque Miniatures:

and the crates in the back are from Crooked Dice:
