Small Projects

Usually inbetween my big project works I do some short term projects, which is refreshing change from not getting bored and unmotivated. I thought I’d share some project photos of some of the work that I’ve been doing.

Not all of them are completed though, but currently their looking good. Small projects can be a good thing to try out, especially when it comes to taking a break from the normal routine.

My Blood Bowl team

My Blood Bowl team

I’m back, after weeks of having a break from the table top hobby, I’ve decided to return to start a new project. Now before I go on, I know I’ve said that I’m starting a Ghoul army, and that is still in the works, so it’s not being abandoned. They’ll be a new post tomorrow on some models I’ve painted for the army.

Anyway, back to the subject. So this week is the return of Blood Bowl, which is great news as I’ve found a few old human Blood Bowl models to re-paint. Just by chance, I found a whole bunch of old models at a charity shop last year, including models from the original Blood Bowl box set! 

In total I’ve found at least eleven models for the human team (sold as separate models), which if I remembered came around at £3-£4 in total. Sadly, I think there were a few more models needed for the team, but the whole model box was gone a week later :(.

But on the bright side, at least I’ve got a near enough full team collection to play. I can add one ogre to the team, which will be fun to heavily kit bash an ogre into a Blood Bowl player. I’ll probably call him ‘Big Steve-fist’, for obvious reasons for his role on the field.

I’m just hoping they can be used at my local GW to use for the new Blood Bowl games. If not however, then at least I can display them as a classic diorama showcase. Plan B would be to get a fresh new team of Skaven to use for the new game, naming them as Team Skelnix.

So far I’ve test painted three models (pic above) which aren’t bad, but I feel that the colour scheme looks bland in appearance. Same as with the rest of the team, they seriously need some help with a better uniform colour scheme. Thankfully I’ve got a copy of the Stormcast Eternals painting guide, which has quite a few decent colour guides that’ll suit well with these models. I’m currently thinking of trying out the Astral Templars colour scheme, as the dark purple will contrast really well with bright silver shoulder plate armour.
In a couple of weeks time I’ll do an update post on the progress for my Blood Bowl team. I may even add a small back story to finish off the project, that’s if anyone is interested. If you guys have any suggestions, post a comment below, and I’ll be glad to read your suggestions :). 

Now all that’s left is just an awesome team name to go along with team, what about the Red weasels?

Red balloon (digital art)

Hi everyone, I’m back with another art post, this time I’ll be showing a visual process guide from start to finish. I’ve used a photo that I took as the background picture, with a combination of digital art to combine both realistic and digital into one picture. 

Whilst I would of like to explain this process more in depth, I’ve sadly haven’t got the time to give you guys a walk through. However, I’ll be updating this post during this week to share my process techniques. 

Hope you guys enjoy the post! 🙂

Clay bowls and protest art [updated]

Just a quick post today on two recent art projects that I’ve been working. One is my three clay bowls (last one was in the kiln and glazed) for test designs towards my final piece, and the other is three pictures of my protest art that’ll be made into a collage.

These are still work in progress, so I’ll be posting an update on these two later on this month. Enjoy!

War for Ghyran: part two coming soon

After Thursdays climatic result from the campagin game on round three, I can now start writing part two! So I thought I might give you guys the current campagin score and Warband rewards we’ve got from part one.

The campagin was about the Skaven defending a Wormhole gate, adding up the dice (with modifiers) each turn until it reached twenty to win. The Sylvaneths task was to reach the Wormhole gate and destroy it before it reached twenty.

The game finished off with the skaven winning a grand victory, earning victory paints up to 3. I’ve rewarded my Arch-warlock, who was rewarded with a re-roll wound   Saves (the unit chart didn’t seem to fit right with the model, so I agreed with my opponent that the model will use the champion chart instead). The Sylvaneth however only revived one point from the game, and the Treelord ancient was rewarded from the champion chart. 

After I’ve finished writing part two, I’ll also do a post on the games battleplan, scores and rewards to show what the gameplay resulted in. Also, I might add some reflective aftermath thoughts on the battle, as it’s good to analyse on what went well and what needed improving.

Anyway, I think that’s all I needed to say for now, although I could boast about how amazing my Arch-Warlock was during round one. But it doesn’t reflect him well currently in the campagin, he’s been squished to death by two angry Treemen. I’ll elaborate on this for another day.

Thanks for reading this post, if you have any questions, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thank you!
