High Elf Mage

Hey guys... Here's another mini I've done back in Apr but don't have camera to take photos of it and was delayed. This is my 1st time done a miniature on a wood plinth. It really took me a hard time of a whole Apr month to finish it coz I'm testing on glazing "juice" technique. The end result was a satisfaction to me.

I want to achieve an atmosphere of the surrounding rocks float to the air when the mage casting a powerful spell. So here I used few High Elf bitz for the base and sculpted floating rocks beside the mage. I also sculpted the fire burst out from the ground (notice the small rocks on the fire??) when the mage swing the flaming sword.

As for the painting side, I free-hand painted the phoenix on the back cloak and also flaming designs on the collar; inner cloak with different color stars. The gold are non-metallic metal. I'm still thinking whether want to sell it or not... Hehe...

Anyway enjoy...

Crimson Fist... Might of Pedro!! (Part 4)

Finally I manage to get the drop pods done. Its been driving me crazy coz I didn't expect it to have so many little little stuff to paint. I've been rushing last Sat & Sun (yesterday) to get it done and send it out today. And I done it!!! I drive as fast as I could to the post office and get it to courier out. (Sigh....) Anyway, I only manage to get a quick snap at the dreadnoughts before packing but unfortunately not the drop pods.

Offered Opportunity...

Recently there was a rare opportunity in my life of painting. Philydorf, a free-lance miniatures' base maker from Greece offered me to use my painted miniatures (in master/display class) on his bases. He sent me 3x 60mm bases and the it was made in resin. The quality and the sculpted work is truly amazing. It really capture the Greece mythic goddess... You can see for yourselves.

Check out Philydorf gallery on Coolmini for more bases:

Well now I have to find a suitable miniatures for it. My promise to Philydorf is to bring out the awesomeness of this base on my miniatures. Definately will not let him down. Maybe you guys can give your opinion of what GW miniatures are best suited for it. Cheerssss...

For this tactical Squad, I've gone for very simple painting. Nothing much except for the free-hand painted banner of red fist grabbing an ork skull.

Rhino & whirlwind. I've painted the same designed from previous rhino; while the for the whirlwind, nothing much I can do but to paint a free-hand name on it "Exterminatus"There goes all the update for Crimson Son. There are Iron Clad Dreadnoughts & Drop Pods still in progress. Stay tune....
