Quick Update

Just a quick picture of my Shang, for my 10 Thunders...Not sure how happy I am with it, and any comments on improving it are welcome.

I'm also working on a Harley, as part of my, "Paint the Batman models that appeal" challenge.  Got the 1st highlight on the skin, and the makeup painted tonight.  White mixed with Lahmian medium, and then applied over an already highlighted face.  Then that mix added to the black and the red for lips and eyes.  Again, thoughts and ideas welcome

Here Doggy...

Been working on my Komainu.  I bought these as part of the Gencon pre release, and didn't check them after they arrived.  When I got to open them, I found that one of them had a piece of the head missing, and that the body piece was warped.  A quick e-mail via the website, and replacements are on their way.  I can't speak highly enough of the Wyrd customer service.

Actual model is painted, and I am not sure whether to base on my usual 10 thunders bases, or to try and add a pillar for them to sit atop.  Either way, I'm pleased with the variety of metals that I have managed to get on the models.

Low River Monks

Well, after a long period of no posts, I seem to have got the urge back to post pictures of what I have painted.  I have completed my Monks of Low River for Malifaux.  Not terribly exciting to paint, but I think that I have done a reasonable job.

Mysteries of the East

Well, I've not posted very much recently, although there has been painting.  I even managed to play a game of Malifaux (Unusual, as the RPG campaign eats most of my hobby time at the moment)

Anyway, some pictures of my Shenlong crew so far, for what its worth.  Experimenting with medium and glazes to highlight the orange, and pretty pleased with the results.

Still to come are the monks of Low River, 2 more Thunder Archers, 2 Katanaka Snipers, and the Lone Swordsman.  Then I can think about opening and building the other 10 Thunders masters to add to the crew.  Possibly starting with some Moon Shinobi.....

The whole crew
