I'm back. . .

Hi all,

I've been hiding under a rock recently but now I'm back, it's been a Golden Demon shaped rock I've been under, at least that's what I like to think lol. . . Anyway, I can show off my attempts from that particular event, unfortunately no hardware as yet, but a super inspiring event as always!

A special shout out has to go to, firstly Natalie Slinn for her friendly advice and generally easy going demeanour, lastly, a big thank you to my good friend Julian Bayliss! Having seen my miniatures for the first time in the flesh, (like everyone else I kept them secret from the rest of the world), he told me he thought they were finalist worthy, to only then turn around and give me his finalist pin! All I can say Julian is a truly class act and good mate!









My entries from the new Eavy Metal class, 40k single miniature and Age Of Sigmar monster categories, please feel free to let me know what you think. . .

Null - inspiration. . .

I thought I would collect some visual inspiration for reference for terrain  ideas, just imagine these against a hostile frozen backdrop and you'll get the right idea.

Carnivale, a painting log. . .

First up, I apply a thinned base coat of white, I'm not too worries about being overly tidy just yet. . .



Second, I've applied an initial wash of Winsor and Newton orange ink that is very thinned down, to all the white areas to help with visual definition. . .


This time, I apply another wash of orange ink, but straight from the bottle, the aim here is to dab the ink on so it pools more and starts to create the extra vibrant colour I'm looking for. . .


Here, I've applied another orange ink layer alongside bloodletter glaze whilst it is still wet. . .


Continuing on, this time I dabbed on more orange ink, followed by carroburg crimson into the recesses. . .


Carnivale expands and more. . .
