Faces Of Krit: Workflow Example

With my catalog of painting faces through Infinity models, I found I had another face to paint up before jumping into a lot of helmeted heavy infantry. I decided it might be fun to show the successive stages of how I was painting faces now, using the LazyPainter technique.

An Evolution Of Face Paintings

I’ve been painting Infinity for about 18 months now and I recently ran across an interesting site on some new techniques. The LazyPainter has a nice quick guide on painting the skin tones with face painting. I recently adopted the technique and I’m liking the results as I work out my own kinks. I thought I’d explore the results a little to see where I’ve come from and where I’m going.

April 30 For 30 Paint Challenge: Day 30

Well we’re finally here on day 30, the end of the challenge. Nothing too exciting as I just started a big project painting up Archaon the Everchosen, Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse.

Heeding The Call

Back a little over six months ago, I was at Gen Con and demoed Warcry from Games Workshop. The game was what I was looking for when I tried out Kill Team. Where Kill Team as a 40k-lite or quick game failed, Warcry really delivered. It took awhile to get in but I finally jumped in and I’m starting to get things rolling.

Infinity Yu Jing: Red Veil

After my color scheme was finalized, I got to work painting up the first few models and made some good progress. It took some time settling on a color to match what I produced on the screen but I got something that was close enough using Army Painter’s Lava Orange with a healthy does of GW’s Agrax Earthshade wash.

Speed Dating: Games Workshop’s WH40K Skirmisher, Kill Team

When I was out at my local Warhammer store last week, picking up my painting handle, the owner let me know that they were running some Kill Team demos later in the month.  I stopped by this past weekend and had the chance to get a little taste of it to see what it was all about.

Handling Minis

I’ve been looking for a better way to hold my minis as I paint them and some time ago, I saw that Games Workshop makes a miniatures “handle.” When I was looking for them six months ago, they were all sold out but they finally came back in stock and picked one up to see how I liked it.

New Temptations, New Shinies, And New Upcomings

I got a chance to play Games Workshop’s Warhammer Underworld: Shadespire the other day and that is a fine little piece of miniature bliss. The last GW game I played and enjoyed was Space Hulk 3.0, but I don’t own it. I own a copy of Dreadfleet but it is still in shrink and I haven’t gotten enough of a push to rectify that.  Shadespire, however, seems right up my alley.
