Project finished

Today I finished the commission set though I still have to do some base detailing, varnishing and packing but the painting is pretty much done, so here is the last piece:

Here are pics of all the minis I painted for this commission, it took me almost exactly two months, I started in March 17th.

Bloody skullz

I received the resin bases and here is the finished Kharn the Betrayer.

I also painted my first Hasslefree mini, it's the freebie I got during their last summer sale. I practiced painting on white undercoat and the colours came out pretty well though I'm not too sure about the tone of the sleeves...

Terrible canyons of static

Last tuesday I painted an Ork Runtherd it was the funny one with a snotling hanging on the left leg. I had another experiment in painting yellow it's been a colour I've not used very much so I really need to improve. It came out pretty well but I had to add some scratches because the yellows looked too bright and clean. This time the back plate freehand was painted by a really dumb ork artist the plan was so simple... hurhur

After that one I started a small showcase project which I finished yesterday. The mini I chose was Yu Jing mech-engineer from Infinity, this piece was a present and the mech-engineer was the most fitting.

Ork from wasteland

I still haven't get the resin bases and Khorne lord so after painting the backpack for the Kharn the Betrayer I decided to paint something for my own projects. I have a weighty box of old Space Ork lead from the Rogue Trader era and I wanted to paint something for them because it's been about a year since I last painted a space ork for my own collection. I had already cleaned, based and primed three orks which included Runtherd, Painboy and normal Ork boy with bolta. The sand on bolta boy's base was already basecoated so it was the lucky one to get painted up first.
