Trio of Walrus Fang Warriors


This sunday was happy for the three white primed Chaos Dwarfs that got lost to my table.
Here's a short WIP-documentary about those brave boys:
Notice that the shields are totally not the ones that I'm about to use on the finished warriors :) There'll maybe be converted shields or plain shield with actual markings, not only mess over mess.

Introducing my garden table

Sorry for the crappy cutting.

This was one of the "If I don't do this immeadetly I'll propably lose my mind"-projects. I have this kind of creative storm going on sometimes, and If I don't grab the brushes or drumsticks when the idea comes, it's most likely gone forever or it haunts me the rest of my life.

Like this plastic table I had. It's round, about 80 cm wide. Me and a friend of mine broke the table's legs one night and I did not wan't to throw this away - I thought that some day I'll tear it down to pieces and use in some project that could need thick ripped plastic. Once the idea of stupidly grinning moon came to me, I was not able to start the job without proper acrylics, and it took a whole week to start this painting - what a pain it was just to wait. I could not sleep for nearly entire week because this idea and image expanded in my head all the time. After I purchased the paints, this was ready two days later. Maybe 7 hour's work in total. I felt purified of sorts.

I remember one christmas over ten years ago when santa gave me Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 64, and the game hit me like a truck. The idea of a destructive moon coming closer and closer to earth was the most terrifying thing I had ever seen as a little brat. People of Huryle were helpless; everybody just stood there and watched the moon coming down, there was nothing anybody could do. "I'LL CONSUME. EVERYTHING". Gosh it was a sad and horrifying image. People trying to live their lives knowing that the last days are close. Anju and Kafei got married just moments before the disaster, what a tragic story.

The idea of a clock that shows how many hours before the world ends still gives me bad chills.

As a catharsis, I painted the image of this destructive moon. It helps me remember that every moment can be the last I have, remember that lad. Be grateful of the time given.

Oi! A monster!

 Well, here's the finished piece with overlit photos (damn this dark weather, it's almost impossible to take even decent pictures when the brightest light comes from my fridge)

I truly wanted to test my sculpting skills what comes to wild ideas: The image of swamp-giant came one night and I started to raid my bitz to see if the conversion would be possible. Luckily the freshly purchased Ghorgon kit gave me most of the spikes and horns...

Blah blah blah just check it out!

 Here's a cute little diorama included. I call it "THE TREASURE HUNTER"

"I can't see a damned thing 'cause this cone is blocking the view"

Nightly thoughts

We all know what it's like to have a primed model soldier on your table. Either it's basecoated black or white , we all become hasty about giving it some more paint and finishing the piece. Completing a work of art balances your inner peace.

Oh the thrill when a primed model steps to your table and gets it's first coats of paint. A white canvas in front of you ready to become alive.

"Everythings okay when I paint this, and I cannot sleep or think anything before it's perfect."

So, here's few primed giant pictures to give you inspiration. I get inpired everytime when I see a primed model, because it's halfway finished piece.

For a test I'll try to upload few pictures of my ongoing projects...

Here's a groovy picture of my Siege gient - project that I started when I found the mutilated carcass of the plastic giant and got an idea.

The excess bracelets from the Ghorgon kit, claws from soulgrinder, and the fungus that I crafted from pike barch gave this guy the look that was stuck in my head after I read the Tamurkhan book.

Why should a  chaos dwarf giant be hidden under a mountain of plate mail?  This giant has been taking a nap in a swamp!

Perfect hygiene

Start of a journey

Hello people of internet!

This is my small corner of hobby-blogging, and I'm eager to see how this will turn out. There will be musing and blabbering about tabletop-wargaming and photographs of my miniatures and progress.

See ya!
