Kingdom of Paintnar – Dynamo Complete!

So, a few weeks ago I reported on my status with Dynamo, Cygnar’s newest character warjack. I got him about half done… and last weekend, managed to get him finished!
First, here’s our hero when last we left him…

All of the base colours are done at this point, and I “just” have to do the highlights… and the golds, of course (that’s what all the brown is for)

Kingdom of Paintnar – The Power of Dynamo!

Have you recently purchased Cygnar’s newest character warjack but found yourself saying “Man, I would really love to learn how to paint him in a thoroughly mediocre fashion”?

Look no further, my friends… for within this post will be revealed all the secrets to allow you to paint Dynamo in a mostly-acceptable-but-not-awesome way!

Kingdom of Paintnar: Stryker3 Complete!

I think I’ve finally “finished” my Stryker3! The only thing left to do was his shield and his base, which as I’m typing this isn’t finished, but as soon as I *finish* typing this I am going to go downstairs and finish!

Here he was two days ago…

As you can see, I cut off his flag (I hated that flag), and assembled and painted everything else…. aside from the base, and needing to do some final touches on his horse.

And after the cut…

Kingdom of Paintnar: Just Because He’s D-List, Doesn’t Mean He Can’t Be Pretty!

Further work on my Stryker3! Hoping to get him finished for the game tomorrow…
Here he was Sunday night…

Base coat is about… 75% done at this point. Happy with how he’s coming along, but a LOT of work still to go. But what would Stryker be without his noble horse?

Infantry, I suppose… but anyway! More pictures after the cut!

Kingdom of Paintnar – All Hail Haley!

Okay, so she’s not done yet, but she IS coming along nicely…

Here she is (laying down due to the way the lighting in my painting room works) after the silvers and whites, but before the golds. More pictures after a short message from our sponsors!

Kingdom of Paintnar – All the Blues, All the Time

So with the painting competition I held on Saturday over, I realized that I’ve finally gotten some of my enthusiasm for painting back. To be honest, I think the whites of Menoth were really getting me down… they’re just so much work to make look acceptable. Since I’m playing Cygnar again, though, I figured I had better finish up some of them instead!

Here we see what I was painting while the competition was going on… specifically, my eHaley, pEiryss, Taryn di Rovissi, and Aiyana and Holt. So… basically all the best-loved women that play for Cygnar (and by “Best Loved”, I mean “Most Loathed by whoever is unlucky enough to be on the other side of the table”).

More pictures after the cut…

The Big Move! AKA: My Work In Progress Box…

So everything has been packed up, but I wanted to take a quick moment to show you all a moment of pride and shame… my packed box of models I own but have not yet even unboxed:

IMAG1561

That is a “Frogbox”, for those of you curious, and it measures a mere 24x20x12″ (about 70L, or 2.4 cubic feet)… and it’s packed exclusively with WarMachine models (oh, and 2 MERCs models and 2 Malifaux models for mods I’m going to make for the B13). Two Stormwalls, a Vessel of Judgement, a Stormstrider, Stryker3, blister after blister of troops, warjacks, and bits from Khador, Cygnar, and Menoth (I haven’t collected any Khador since 2012, but I haven’t painted almost any of the stuff I have either!).

I’m going to do my damnedest to get more of this stuff painted before I buy NEW stuff… but we’ll see how that goes!

Paintectorate of Menoth – Models Finished in February

So I’m currently knee-deep in trying to get all my models protectively coated (Gloss varnish followed by matte finish), so my painting has slowed somewhat. However, I have managed to finish a few models this month…

I finally mounted eFeora’s smokestacks and painted them, plus finished my Allegiant of the Fist, 2 Vassals of Menoth, a unit of Wracks… plus some Cygnar models: Specifically 4 Sword Knights and my full unit of Tempest Blazers. The Sword Knights and Blazers have been sitting at 95% done for-EVER… it’s nice to finally get them finished!

Here are a few (very poor!) pictures to prove it!
