Paint Table Saturday 230th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 230th edition !
Welcome to paint table 230 !

Not much has happened this week , as I was sick ... the flue. But the last few days it went a bit better and I managed to paint a few things.
I've built and started on some Daughters of Khaine , Morathi & 5 Melusai. The skin is done.
A little bit of progress is made on the 5 White lions. All base colors + wash are applied , only highlights left + base.
And I finished 2 models (one that has been lying around for ages) & another one I just finished (except for the base). They're waiting for some custom decals I ordered from Amerika. Untill then they stay hidden in the shadows...
Here is a little tip :
That's it for this weeks paint table ... see you all next week !

Death Guards : Typhus Herald of the plague God finished !

So as I yesterday promised at Paint Table Saturday ... more pictures of Typhus Herald of the plague God
 He was a joy to paint. I added a second armour color for him & this made him even more interesting than he already is. I didn't do the swarm on this back. I don't like them on him , but maybe on a later date they can be added. Or not ... or with magnets , so I can remove them... still not certain.

Paint Table Saturday 229th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 229 !

Only the White Lions are still on the table , with little progress...
I did the base color + wash ( silver ) & base color ( cloak ) of 5 White Lions. I hope to finish at least those 5 before the end of the month of March to keep up my quota ( 20 per month ). 
I also have a new Photo booth and here are some photo's made using it.
 It has changeable backgrounds. Here you see the black & white ones. 
 And Death Guards Typhus has left the table... See more of him in the next post !

Daughters of Khaine : Sorceress finished !

Yesterday I finished my first model for my Daughters of Khaine army.
I've painted Witch Elves before , but they're integrated in my High Elves army.
 I used a hero base for this one. I chose the pillar one as there are more models that are standing on pillars within this army.

Paint Table Saturday 228th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 228th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 228 !
I've put the Dwarf zeppelin on hold until I get to do the green stuff.
So I worked on what was on the table. I planned to do a lot and did little. Time flies when painting. Some paint an entire army in an afternoon , I just one mini. The Sorceress for my Daughters of Khaine army. See more of her in the next post.
No progress on the other mini's.

That's it for this weeks episode.
See you all next week !

Dwarfs : Zeppelin Ship W I P 2

 A quick update. Second day of playing with glue.
 All pieces that need to be glued are glued , except for the inside of the ship ( cannon , engine , steering column , crows nest & gun turret ).

Next step : filling the gaps with green stuff !

Dwarfs : Zeppelin Ship W I P

 After the fiasco on Saturday I asked Mom miniatures for help & got the answer : Super Glue GEL ! !!
And it works !
I have glued the balloon , the ship to the cloud & both pieces of the ship together & 2 pillars that support the balloon. The balloon isn't glued yet to the pillars and the 2 sides of the ship are also not glued as I want to fit them better together ( little problem caused by my berserk action on Saturday ).

I've set it aside now to dry for 24 hours. Tomorrow I'll glue the other parts in place ( that are seen on the picture ) & I'm almost there !

Paint Table Saturday 227th edition !

Paint Table Saturday 227th edition !
 Welcome to paint table 227 !

I finished the Wildwood rangers this week for the Wood Elves army. 

And now I started on 15 High Elves White Lions. They're the metal version that I bought at Crisis 2017. So far I did the base color + wash for the skin.

I also started on a Daughters of Khaine model : the Sorceress. There will be more of these models to see in the future as I started yet another new army with these models. ( Highly addicted to buying I'm afraid...)

I also started on Typhus for the Death Guards army. This model is the main reason I started this army. I love it , I'm still not sure if I use the smoke with flies. But I can always add them later !
 And here the reason of not posting on Saturday : Mom miniatures Dwarf zeppelin !

Where to start ... I was so excited to order it last year. It was a preorder in March 2017 and it took a serious amount (170 euro) and a  long while to get here at the end of 2017. As always ( with my new stuff ) it gets unpacked , looked , stacked and sometimes forgotten...

And yesterday I felt the need to start this project...
Biggest mistake of my life ! ! ! ( Never have I regretted spending so much money on a model than this one - I'm no longer a fan of Mom miniatures ! )
A full day of trying to glue this thing together with rubber bands ( to keep all in place ) , with fail after fail , etc ... This thing does not fit together what so ever , with gaps as big as a cm , but that didn't stop me. So I started on the hull , glued it together ( all was well ). Then I glued all the supports for the balloon , then glued the balloon. And when I tried and fit it all together , the balloon was to big to fit between the supports for it. I have tried all resources available in my arsenal , but nothing made this thing fit or glue together and stick.
So after 8 hours or so , I went berserk ( Yes like a Dwarf ) and threw the whole damn thing nearly through the window. Got my sanity a little back before I really threw it with great force in the garbage bin and then I really lost it and almost destroyed the model.
 So after I cooled down , I decided not to throw 170 euro's in the bin and got it back out and repaired the whole thing. And luckily all that is still visible from my carnage is one broken shield. That I might repair or leave as is as a reminder of my rage...

Now I've come up with a new plan. And I'll be going shopping in a local hardware store and get me the necessary tools to finish this infernal thing ! 
And hopefully soon it will look like the only model ever built  ( by mom miniatures itself ) minus one broken shield, as far as I know as I can't find anyone else who has.

So that's it for this week.
See you all next week ! For hopefully a more relaxed Paint Table Saturday !

Wood Elves : Wildwood Rangers finished !

I finished the Wildwood Rangers for my Wood Elves army to reinforce my Sylvaneth.
I apologize for the bad pictures but my camera is defect. So I'll have to decide what to do... Buy a new one ( as fixing this one is more expensive ) or use my old one back or use my phone.  
 I've painted them GW style with my own twists and no freehand designs as I'm not that good. 
I'm just a hobby painter , not a pro.
 Left : Champion , Standard-bearer & Musician
Right : regular troops
& a back view with all the different cloaks.
