This saturday the GW store in Stockholm was holding The Fang, wich was a miniature painting competition. I took place in three classes, single miniature 40k, Warhammer fantasy regiment and diorama. Today I found out that I got first prize in Warhammer fantasy regiment and diorama! I don´t know yet how my Big Mek for singel miniature 40k manage, I just know it didn´g got first prize, but who can complain, I got two! Today is surely a happy day!
The pictures was taken by Anders Bilving for GW, Stockholm.

Untill next time, happy painting!

Grey knights wip

It was a while since I posted some Grey knights, telling the truth I have working on some pieces for The Fang this week (not only, but among other things). This is what´s on my desk at the moment. The bases for the first five terminators are almost done, a final highligt on the stones and some static grass and they are of to go. But they also need some more details and I hope I have time to do that tonight. The Terminators in the back needs some more work. I redid them as I wasn´t pleased with the way the metal turned out. Well, I hope I will be pleased now. I will update tomorrow and tell you how it turned out.
Untill next time, happy painting!

Dryads, all eight!

Here is all eight Dryads that will be part of my entry for the Fang, Stockholm. Before I hand in my entry I will do a touch up on the eyes I think. and a few parts witch need a stronger highlight, still its pretty much the end result. I have decided to keep the bases like this, I think they work quite well with the Dryads.
And keep your eyes up for another basing tutorial.

Dryads, last wip and halfways there

I did some basing on the first four Dryads for the fang last night. I´m not sure about the bases yet, but I´ll wait and think it looks ok for now. The Dryads still needs a final touch and some smooting out to do, but since I lost a bit of inspiration in them I thought it was time to do some basing to see if I can get a hint of the final result.
Untill next time, happy painting!

Lunchtime painting

During naptime at home (the goblins naptime, not mine:P) I manage to finish of the armour for this Blood angels Terminator for Space Hulk.
Comparing to the first one, I actually used a different recipe for red, I think this looks far better, or what do you think? I might repaint the first one or just do some tuch up and make him a bit darker.

And I will go on a mission and learn how to take decent pictures even when it´s a fast WIP shoot.
Untill next time, happy painting!

WIP Space hulk and Dryads

Since the kids have been ill some time and then it was passed over to me I havent been able to paint for a few days. Last night was the first night in a while that I held a brush, god I have missed it!
First out is a WIP on a Terminator for Space Hulk, althou it doesn´t really show in the pic but the armour got I think it was 8 different tones of red before reaching this step. I will finish it of with some final sharp highligt keeping the dark tone of the armour. I will do that tonight.
 Second is a WIP on one of my Dryads that hopfully will be entering The Fang.
And since my lite trolls at home thought that it was a good idé to use almost all of my Boltgun metal for painting the floor...I´ll try to get some new today sonce I got a squad of GK terminators begging for my time man, those are great minis!)

Untill next time, happy painting!

Grey Knights Terminators and a Dreadknight WIP

Here is a few shoots of last nights work.The metal on the Terminators is almost done, just some smoothing up to do, a finaö highlight and maybe add some more blue to the armour. The gold is just a first layer and a shade. I will probably finish this squad tonight or tomorrow.

The Dreadknight will be huge, it´s much bigger than I first thought, but here is the body and legs with a first coat of metal (but it kind of look white in the pic)
Apart from this I did some painting on the blood angels Terminators from the Space hulk box to, but the pics got so bad that I will show you after next painting session instead.

Untill next time, happy painting!

Tonights desk

This is what I have been doing the last days. I think I manage to do quite much considering that the kids are ill and I have worked. Ok, as you can see I´m working on four projects at once (who said anything about priority?).
First out is 9 Grey knights in terminator armour , the first four are old metal once and the five in the back are plastic. I started to paint on the once in the back this night so they just got there first layer of Boltgun metal and some blue shade.
Next is some Blood angels terminators for Space hulk followd by some Genestealers. Nothing fancy yet, I just started to paint them.

And finaly is some pics on my fantasy project for The fang, I´m not sure I´m going to make it, but I´ll give it a try!

Untill next time, happy painting!

The call of the wild

Ok, I have decided to do a mission impossible...while doing some comissionwork I will at the very same time enter The Fang at Games workshop Stockholm. I decided to go for Warhammer fantasy regiment wich is just plain stupid as;
one, I didn´t have any fantasy- models (at least not a whole regiment).
Two, I don´t even play warhammer fantasy...
Three, where should I find the time to do this entry?
Four, I decided to do a blog project out of it.

Well...I bought 8 second handed Wood elf dryads throu Tradera (as Ebay) and I got them yesterday. Last night I start working on them and I took som pics while working.
First pic is when I just opened the box.(I won´t do any photo mambo jambo at this stage as I need that time to finish this project).
Next step was to remove the Dryads from ther bases and take care of mould lines and start doing some basing. Mouldlines done, and basing begun.

Basing is done now when sand was added to the bases.
All that was left was to attached the Dryads to their base.

Sine I use both black and white while priming, I give you two pics on the primed Dryads.
The whole group of dryads again.
The first four will be these.
so what else can I say than pure madness...
Untill next time, happy painting! and stay sane...

Blood angels terminator one

I´m doing a set of Space hulk at the moment (among other things) and here is a WIP on the first terminator, I will use that one as a test and try some different techniques and colors on.I have tried out some different light settings during the photo thats why the same mini looks a bit different in the same collage.
What do you think, can he pass or is it just plain and boring?
Untill next time, happy painting!

Got a present from the mailman

Today the mailman (actually woman) brought me a present. I had bought some stuff of  Tradera (the swedish version of Ebay) and now it´s finally found it´s way to my home.
So why would he who doesn´t even plays Warhammer fantasy wants this you asked yourself, well it´s for a secret project. I make sure to update you when it comes to it´s final stage.
Here is a clue...

Grey knight terminators

Tonight I started to paint the squad of GK terminators, since I already have done the captain, it´s only four Terminators to paint. I went for a silver/blue traditional look with gold on the ornaments. So, this is how they look with the first layer of shading and a first layer of highligt (on the silver there is).

Untill next time, happy painting!

Grey knight competition

A while ago I painted a Grey knight terminator captain for the competition over at the brush brothers, now the voting is up and filled with many stunning minis. Go there and find your favourite and give it a vote, last day to vote i the 12:e of May. I didn´t get the best pictures of my GK, but I will try to redo it some other time, the paintjob is not really showing in the pics. Anyway, my goal is to get one vote. Let´s see if I can make it!

Untill next time, happy painting!

Space hulk Genstealer

Here is the first Genstealer from the Space hulk box. This is a testmini to see if the colours working out. It´s not done yet, but for tonight it is! I´m doing the Space hulk box as a comission. This was a great break from the Grey knights (who still is some really fun minis, but there force weapons...!) Speaking of the Grey knights, squad 2 is done accept from some forece weapons and the bases. The bases won´t take long, but I guess there is an hour or two just for the force weapons. Anyway, no more speaking of the Grey knigts and I show you the Genestealer.

Untill next time, happy painting!

On my desk

Here is a few wip shoots of what I´m currently working at. The Grey knigts purifier squad is almost done. I have tha blades, eyes and a few other small things left, but besides that it gives you a rough idea about how they will turn out.

The Terminators will hopefully get there first coat of paint this week, I will experiment with another way of painting there blue/silver armour.

And the last pic is a new project that I will start tomorrow. At the moment the first five Genestealers have just been primed.

Untill next time, happy painting!
