28mm – Mierce Miniatures – Creoda, Guthwulf

I had the pleasure to be commissioned to work this awesome and big piece by Mierce Miniatures, who haves and awesome range, although some expensive.
I worked here mainly with airbrush, almost everything.
Pictures and my work don’t make justice to this excellent piece. I only had a problem, with left rear leg.. although i tried to clean all it didn’t fit quite well.. and my work with putty to fill the gap is noticeable once painted. All the figure has a very tiny pattern (hair) which was impossible to reproduce in the putty. Anyway i’m happy with final result, quite similar to what i imagined. Another try with airbrush and i begin to feel good doing it. Most of the problems relay in have the paints in an appropriate state, enough liquid to don’t obstruct the airbrush but not too much. Achieving that all the rest is play with colours as usual done with brush. Next step begin to practice masking some parts, and to make outlines using floating masks…
Some one for sure will recognise a part from a LOTR kit in the base. All the rest is natural stuff, such stones and pine bark.

28mm – Games Workshop – Ogre Kingdoms Leadbelchers (Conversion KoW Ogre Army Standard Bearer)

I finished this single piece to ends the content of the Ogres Leadbelchers box, which contains 4 figures. In KoW 4 is a bad number for Ogres, you can rank 3 or 6.. so the remaining figure should be something different to a Boomer. I converted the figure, changing gun’s arm position, with some green stuff, cut here, cut there..
Base is made with cork fragments.
Some work is done with airbrush, as i’m trying to practice, a mixed technique airbrush/brush.
Although i don’t dislike the result i prefer the skin tone used in the Boomers. Anyway was interesting to try a different skin tone.

portada-Ogres-GW

I purchased these guys to reinforce my Kings of War human army, but in the forthcoming V.2 i can only carry them as allies, it haves his benefits, although this concrete unit, Boomers, is beings restructured and they will not be so brutes as they were. Anyway i enjoyed a lot painting these, i used airbrush for the ogre’s skin, applying base coat and two highlights. I need to improve such technique a lot, but i like result, it’s the first time. Anyway i don’t feel confidence enough to apply it on nothing smaller than these ogres.. so. These are my first Ogres ever, but also my first Goblins, Red Goblins, as they should be because they are Ogre’s slaves… that say KoW rules.
To my taste, these ogres depict better the Boomers description than the Mantic Ogres themselves…
Hope you like them too.

AMX-13/90 “Heller”

The AMX-13 is a French light tank produced from 1953 to 1985. It served with the French Army, as the Char 13t-75 Modèle 51, and was exported to over twenty-five other nations. Named after its initial weight of 13 tonnes, and featuring a tough and reliable chassis,[1] it was fitted with an oscillating turret built by GIAT Industries (now Nexter) with revolver type magazines which were also used on the Austrian SK-105 Kürassier.[1] Including prototypes and export versions there are over a hundred variants including self-propelled gun, anti-aircraft systems, APCs, and ATGM versions. Total production of the AMX-13 family is approximately 7,700 units, around 3,400 of which were exported.

About ki:

This is a very old kit of “Heller”. Detailing very poor. Tracks were replaced by tracks from UM Hetzer. Handrails were all made of wire. Were also made the ventilation grilles of the engine and the barrel trunk.

The model as always was painted with AMMO acrylic paint, and pigments.
