Ants for the Antmaster

Just finished off the Otherworld giant ants.

These figures are quite fragile (I snapped off one leg and an antenna) as they need the legs and antennas stuck on to the body which is not as hard as it looks, but requires some patience.

The bases were a quandary, dungeon or out door. I eventually opted for outdoors with some rocks as I may also use these with may Darkest Africa stuff.

Colour was quite simple, first I painted the underside GW Verrmin brown then a heavy wash of GW Agrax Nightshade. I then repeated the process for the top half.

This left me with fully painted ants but to improve (hopefully) the look, I highlighted the top only with GW Vermin Brown followed by a lighter highlight of GW Vermin Brown mixed with white.

Eye's are GW Regal blue with a highlight of Enchanted blue.

Then add some flock and job done.

Dragon - Part Two

Very limited progress this month.

I have cleaned up the base dragon but have not yet started pinning. In respect to the base I added some green stuff to give the impression the treasure was piled up on a dungeon floor.

New set of Mordheim Buildings

Last month I finished off my second set of GW Mordheim buildings. Both sets now complete, just need to get around to playing some games.

A corpse of Vampires

Back before it was trendy I loved Vampires, the scary, evil serial killer types. Not your more modern shiny, vegetarian reformed serial killer types who have human girlfriends and deny their true nature. Think Salam's Lot, Dracula, Anno Dracula, 30 Days of Nights, Let the right one in, I am legend (which I must re-read), Martin the vampire, Ultraviolet, Near Dark, Byzantium, and perhaps the early Anne Rice stuff.

So over the years I seemed to have amassed and painted a few starting back with the original citadel FF58 - Vampire through to more modern such as Otherworld Miniatures more recent UD10 - Vampire.

I still have a few unpainted (in fact some still blister packed) but what follows is a gallery of the ones done to date.
