    Decided choice 1 as Battleline option 2 for the Adherents, with Pikemen being option 1. May come up with 1 more battleline unit, any thoughts?

    5 of 10 Shifters/Werewolves
    Need to find the last 2 of the second 5 lol not sure where i put them 20231105_173936.jpg

    I think for a 4th and final hero type I'm going to do a Shifter/Druid type, whether they're in an animal form or not I'm undecided.

    That'll be Priestess, Warchief, Hunter, Shifter/Druid as hero types

    ......

    Without getting deep into it or getting mad again...i was on the third question and my exam somehow auto submitted on me, I have no idea how. So, I am now waiting on my professor to email me back so I can hopefully get a new exam to take. Otherwise... 3 out of 50? Just, yeah.

    I got a new background for my light box, and it is working wonders! With no glare I feel my miniatures are finally getting the photography they deserve. Showing so much more color than before!

    Almost done with this side of this beastie, then onto the next sections! Expect some updated photos of miniatures to start streaming in :) 20231107_154150.jpg 20231107_154255.jpg

    Very nice! The colours definitely pop!

    What material did you use for the lightbox background?

    Some Oldies but goodies :)

    I painted all of these 2-3.5 years ago, the Fyreslayer being the most recent and the female Troglodon (headcanon) being the oldest. I wanted to dee how the green hair looked on my Fyreslayer because I'm debating between green or Purple/violet for hair for the rest of them, and I'm thinking I may stick with the green after originally thinking I was going to go away from it.

    20231113_230536.jpg 20231113_230650.jpg 20231113_230701.jpg 20231113_230738.jpg 20231113_230809.jpg 20231113_230928.jpg 20231113_231436.jpg

    I am considering putting an oracle on each of these with a small troupe of skinks (like shown) since i have many left over Terradon skinks. I originally found it off putting that the Oracle was so much bigger than the other skinks, but then was reminded that more Alpha like Skinks may/would possibly be bigger than other skinks, so it checks out. What do you think? 20231113_212215.jpg

    Another classic of mine, my first "Stegadon" from when I first started the hobby. Couldn't afford a real one at the time, so I improvised

    New Background helps bring out the colors more 20231114_172545.jpg

    Some progress on this handsome fellow! More detail work as I pick out areas and the runes upon his skin. Working also on his axe a bit, and I repainted his loin cloth from Red to the current green(s). All in all, really Happy with it so far!

    Also have begun a test hair for the more battleline/common troops

    Hey everyone! I am really excited to share with you both my finished Runefather but also my first short story for the #SlidecrownIsle Narrative campaign from White Dwarf! Both have been a lot of fun to work on so hope you enjoy!

    The story surrounds my Runefather Vidar-Grimnir and what is not only a tale of exploration, exploits, and battle but also a story of a dude looking for a new companion after his Magmadroth has been slain. Going to Slidecrown Isle the Runefather hopes to uncover an ancient flame which is said to have landed deep within the isle and holds a possible unknown spawn of the Ur-Salamander.

    From the painting side, Vidar-Grimnir was a lot of fun to paint. Using greens I wanted to capture the Realm of Life and how that would change my Fyreslayers. I also added two main things to give him a little personality, a pipe and some throwing axes on his back. I went for a natural look with stone for the helm and shoulder guards, and then painting a little gold into the design.

    Some retakes of a project from long ago, I believe my first major kitbash, I did remove the Seraphon icons and put the Fyreslayer shields there for the moment

    Id like to revisist this idea, refesh it and reinvision it a little bit for my Fyreslayers. As of now this kitbash is representative of no faction, but rather a Ghyranian Large Fauna piece.

    It's a piece i like but see so many things that could have been done so much better, but that's part of growth :)
