Puff and Slash Dwarf Army....The Grind Continues...Part Duex!

Back with a brief update on the progress being made on the large group of marauder puff and slash dwarfs that I have been working through.  The group has expanded to 33 figures with the addition of a three figures from the classic Marauder Pike Dwarf unit...namely the Leader, Standard Bearer and a trooper.

After being out of town for a week doing some field work I immediately got back to work upon my return.

The first things I accomplished was base coating and highlighting the many Gold bitz on these figures.

Puff and Slash Dwarf Army...the Grind continues!

Hi all,

After the OWAC and the tremendous progress that was made toward completing my Puff and Slash Dwarf Army I have been continuing to plug away at the last troops for this force.  I am determined to finish up this army ASAP... that end I've been fairly diligent about working through a large group of figures all at once to try and push this across the finish line.  So...I assembled a group of 30 minis that will fill out my existing units to their final size as well and complete an entirely new unit of heavy infantry.  This process has involved Batch Painting one of the largest group of figures I have ever tried to complete in a single go....and significant progress is being made. I've had to leave town for week to do some field work and I was not able to finish these batch before I left.

So...I thought I would get some WIP pics up on this blog to let you know what I've been working on and to help motivate me to push it thru once I'm finally back at the painting desk!  My excitement level is fading as I get down to the details so I need all the encouragement I can get!

Ok...As usual I started with Dark Grey Auto Primer for all figures...then I applied the base colors to the major areas.

Chaos Renegade ...Squad 3...number 5

Hi all,

After the Marathon of the OWAC I needed a brief respite from the grind of my puff and slash dwarf army...there is still much to do there and the next blog post will cover my recent efforts in that regard...but this post will see a return to the much loved Chaos Renegades that I have been working on for a couple of years now.

This change of pace allowed me to work with some different colors and styles and to work on just one figure at a time!  What a crazy idea!? It seemed so quick once I got down to it!

As the halfway point of renegade Squad 3 I chose to return to the excellent Nurgle Renegade range and picked one of my absolute favorite figures....the one that looks like a natural leader among his foul brethren...lovingly titled "Plaguebearer Head 1" you have come to expect from me I opted for some particularly un-Nurgle colors for this guy.  Looking at the other four members of Squad 3 I found that it was lacking something from the Red-ish range so opted for a deep rich red for the base color...nicely contrasted by the tan trim and de-saturated blue for his skin tone.

Here is how he ended up....
