Finding Time to Hobby

If you haven’t noticed it’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly. Life unfortunately can get busy. Who ever thought that adulting could be so difficult. As children we often assume that when we grow up we can do what we want when we want and no one can tell us otherwise. We quickly learn that the only time in our life that this is the case is in college.

Tech Priest Dominus Painting

Welcome to part two of this post in my Tech Priest Dominus Painting. I am very excited to paint this guy up. Coming from Infinity the Game Warhammer 40k miniatures feel huge. I’m hoping that my abilities with painting have improved since the last time I painted Warhammer over 15 years ago. Let’s get started. Click read more to see the progression of this guy.

If you are new to how I do this each update I copy what I had already done and I add in the progress I made this week. When I am done it is a long step by step progression of the miniature.

Miniature Painting Basics: The Base Coat

I’m back with another miniature painting basics video. In this one I go over the basics of working on a base coat of paint on the miniature. It is a fairly simple video and may be a refresher course for many viewers, but as the title says this is just the basics for a beginner painter.  You can find more of my videos on my YouTube channel.

Adeptus Mechanicus Assembly

I spent my weekend building my newly aquired Adeptus Mechanicus troops. I purchased the start collecting Skitarii collection and I added in a detachment of Kataphrom Destroyers. Doing the math on what I own I have a grand total of 31 power. That is not very much. I will need quite a few more troops and things to bulk up my army and actually play.

The color scheme is still up in the air. I’m thinking of doing a royal purple color for all of their robes. Purple will most likely be the accent color for their armor, but we’ll see. I also need to base them all, but that doesn’t take very long to get done. The only one I built not pictured is the Onegar Dunecrawler.

Coming from Infinity the Game where an army consists of between 10-16 troops assembling this many guys made me feel like I’m falling very far behind on my painting, but it’s just a difference in game types. Warhammer 40k is an army building game and Infinity the game is a skirmish game.

To my fans that play Infinity, don’t worry I’m still playing infinity regularly as my main game, but I want to get back into 40k.

Neko Oyama Painting Part 5

I’ve been doing a bit of work on Neko Oyama lately. I forgot to take a before picture when I just had him primed, but I will go over the steps I’ve done so far. Before this point I did a base coat of the blue and added a few highlight and lowlight shades and a wash to make the angles and ridges stand out. I then added white on all the ridges to make them stand out.
