Speed-painted Plague Monks

The first post made on this blog showed this unit as work-in-progress – completed last year:

The command unit:

The basic technique here was controlled drybrushing, use of washes for shading, and glazes to unify the colours and take the chobbiness out of the drybrushed surfaces.

Re-painting Miniatures

This was originally painted last year. I re-painted it to make it a bit more dynamic, and sharpen the metallic effects. Glazed the armour with purple and turquoise, and made a more evocative base:

The sorcerer was painted last year as well, re-jigged to look a bit smoother and less gauche:

I tried to improve the lighting effect a bit – but must have been cack-handed with modelling the base, because some of it was unpaintable.

This one was originally meant to be an imperial preacher for 40,000, but I changed it to an Amethyst Wizard:

Worthwhile doing though – you can see clearly how much your skills have developed, and it leaves you with a paintjob which is much better and more striking.

Inspiration: Apocalypse!

No – not the GW game about massive battles and (fun) power-gaming delight. John Martin’s visions of The End Of Times.

Intense, disturbing and vivid – a great source of inspiration for creating striking painting schemes and landscape terrain:

The Great Day Of His Wrath

Pandemonium

The Deluge

Sodom and Gomorrah
