Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

Not a great deal of progress on the painting front this last week, but I have been adding to my troop selection following a trip to the Perry miniature website - a selection of Samurai cavalry, a selection of Ashigaru archers, a couple of Cannon with palisades and personal banners, their a tad larger than the Citadel miniatures but not enough to be too much and just to add a touch of original Fantasy a Tom Meier Oriental Dragon :lol: which I've already stripped, assembled, primed and based :D .

Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

Well my weekend didn't go according to plan, when my wife announced She was going to attend a fencing competition over the course of the weekend - to cut a long story short this led to me knocking a hole in the chimney breast of my front lounge, repair the chimney, re-lining the cavity and re-plastering! :cry: Needless to say the painting of the Oriental Dragon was minimal, but here's a few shots of my progression using various blues, glazes, mixing in of white and starting to paint the detail, so far :) .

That's a rather extreme reaction to a fencing competition.... nice blues on the dragon. :)

It looks like it's flown straight out of a vintage china dinner service!

OK, not so much as progress towards BOYL, but towards Orctober 8-) - the Black Mountain Boys, have finally made it to the table, I'm hoping to have them all done for the end of the month, and as I've taken Half-term off, I'm fairly confident they'll get done and provide me with a second regiment of dwarf ticklers !

Here are to days progress shots

With a bit of luck, I should have this first batch done and a second, well on the way to being complete by close of business tomorrow :D

All the best

Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

First real post of 2019, showing what I'm currently working on - Eldar Rangers, these have been sat in a box for at least the last seven years!, where does the time go, anyway here's the first squad to hit the painting table, the rest are current in a bath of paint stripper waiting for me to clean them off with my power washer ( I'm not kind to my miniatures, as I'm fed-up with loosing my finger tips to the chemical bath, whilst using a scrubbing brush). Hopefully, I'll have have a few squads ready for BOYL, before I return my attention to the samurai!
As ever my pictures do me no favours

Very nice.

Love the contrast of camouflage with yellow helmet and like the way you've painted up the weapons gives them an ancient feel to them with the mix of metal/wood

Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

Love the paint jobs, no matter the camera. Those are definitely some interesting miniatures: Kind of what I'd call "middlehammer" with a nod to the old, and your paint does a great job of showing that off: some gritty middlehammer Imp Guard-ish greens combined with some old-school yellow piratical elf-helm. And like Dazza said, I love what you did with the laser muskets. That is absolutely a fantastic look: Space Sindar, if you will, as opposed to the slightly earlier RT-era Space Valiquendi. Love it!
