Jeff's Completed projects 2015

While I've been busy with my Rogue Trader project, I have gotten a few fantasy models finished. Same warning as last year, I'm posting my finished projects here which may not all be wonderful old lead.
Without further delay - photos. First up, a screaming skull catapult and a few newhammer chaos warriors.

And the chaos warriors - I felt the need to drill out the musician's helm a bit so he could actually play the horn.

Finished the Snakeman. Based on the "history" that they were meant to be a subterranean race, I've gone for an albino/cave dwelling skin tone - Thanks to those of you who offered thoughts on the work in progress! I'm pleased with the results, the skin has a bit more contrast in person than it does in the photo. I intend to use him as a chaos warrior, tending towards Khorne, so that's guided some of my color choices for armor. (plus with a skull on his halberd and a skull hilt on his bone handled sword, what else would he be?)

The sculpt has a bit of a flat area under the curve of the body here, I've tried to hide it by panting it as stone, and blending it into the base.

Thanks! I hope so too, my paint mojo has been a bit off lately.

Re: Jeff's Completed projects 2015

Had a lovely weekend, playing ROC Warbands with some terrific Oldhammerers. It may just have been the dice of the day, but it seemed that the fickle powers of chaos favored the skaven, with ratmen eventually forming part of all the chaos warbands. This inspired me to paint up a few Khorne skaven. (the maximum number of skaven from a single follower roll is 8 - the sacred number of Khorne - coincidence? I think not.) Waiting for movers to arrive to day to pack out my express baggage, meant I had plenty of painting time, so...here they are - the Blood Claw of Khorne.

I think they'll still manage to blend in with the rest of my skaven once added to a large unit...

Khorne Skaven, very cool. I do like those plastic Skaven and have a good 200 myself painted.. I didn't like them much after I painted them though hehe

Re: Jeff's Completed projects 2015

Great looking Skaven - and you said in the previous post your paint-mojo was suffering? Well, mine too now :lol:

I have to ask - did you sculpt the Khorne symbols onto the shields or is that some devilish brush-trickery you have performed? They look like they have little rivets holding them on but...

Re: Jeff's Completed projects 2015

Brush trickery (not that it was really very tricky). I painted the symbol on the black shield with bone white. Gave it a highlight of pure white, and then a AP Soft Tone wash. There are molded rivets in the metal areas of the shield that are part of the stock model.
I'm now trying to decide if I also need to paint 6 Slaneeshi Skaven. I'm having a good ponder on this one - I think pink is right out, but with white being the official color of slaneesh, I might be able to make it work (it would however be a dirty white - they are skaven after all :lol: )
