A Roman Gladiator in Paint

This is a Warlord Games Model. Pretty cool model.  You will note that the basing is similar to my Roman armies. 
There is a reason for that.  I am in the process of converting a pile of miniatures into Roman Gladiators.
Most of the models will....well pretty much all of the models will be from various Victrix miniatures.
I have not done a lot of conversion work lately with green stuff, and pretty this is the model that I'm going to blame for me to do a bunch of conversions....should be a cool project.

A Slaanesh Avatars of War Lord of Chaos

This is one sick miniature, in a good sort of way.  It really has some great character.
I'm not going to lie, its a bit of a pain in the ass to paint, with super fine detail.
The cape just screamed to be painted in skintones.  Little bit gross when you think about it.
I decided to keep the snake-ish body in skintones as well.  The scales I went with some greens., maybe should have done that in a different color.
The icon is a weird riot to paint.
So there you have it, one of my crazier chaos painted models.

So after some Hate....Time for some Prayer

I've painted a number of these monks.  They are great little figures.
Lots of good character.
Nice looking gesture.
Just a super simple model to paint, that looks really good.

Some painted Hate

 I'm a big fan of Adrian Smith's artwork, and own a couple of his Hate graphic novels.  They are great looking books.  So I saw these up for sale and picked them up.  The plastic is the same as the Zombicide stuff from CMON.  Not the easiest stuff to work with. Detail is good, but the undercuts on them are a bit shallow.  Also I recommend that you check your primer to see if its compatible with the plastic and does not eat the plastic.

Fun miniatures: 

I've only ever seen the artwork in black and white.  So I went with colors that I thought fit the models.

Much more to follow....

Victric Roman Aux. Update

 Short update on the Roman unit posted not long ago, got around to basing the movement tray.

I do really like this kit.  If you have not bought them and have a Roman army, you ought to do yourself a favor and pick them up.

More to come.....

Barbarian Marauder - Avatars of War painted

I'm not sure why years ago that I bought this miniature.  Its certainly not one of my favorites.  I think it was originally sculpted by Gary Morley, not one of my favorite sculptors. 
There are certain views of it though that are very cool looking, like this head on view above.
The shield is pretty cool, but the cape below like the Lord of Wrath model sucks.
The other thing I really don't get with the model is the decapitated head that he is standing on when the model is armed with a flail.  Oh well, fantasy.
