More Warhammer 40k Terrain

That Monique De Noir is still on hold as I am really getting into terrain creation. I'm most likely going to use this set of terrain for my Warhammer 40k games I've decided. This is the second completed piece that I've done in this set. The first two landscapes I started with didn't work out, but this one, and the one I showed off in the previous post, did. I've still got supplies left so I might be making more soon.

Warhammer 40k Terrain

Well, I was painting Monique De Noir until I realized I didn't like the color scheme I had chosen for her. I'm starting over on her but stripping all that paint took so much work that I needed a break from her; so, I started making terrain for Pathfinder/Warhammer 40k.

Here's the first piece done! I used a foam board for the base, and tiny clay tiles I found at Michaels for the stonework. I'll be posting another terrain piece soon.

New Shipment

I just bought a whole slew of new minis and am pretty excited to get started on them. I was in the process of building a Dark Eldar Rader ship but man its big and is taking a lot of time. I decided to take a break from it to start painting one of the new models I got in my shipment. The model's name is Monique De Noir from Reaper. Forgot to take a picture straight out of the blister but here's what I've got so far on her.

I'm thinking about a color scheme of black, white, and either yellow or pink.

The Dwarf

So I finished off the Dwarf and Knight today! It's been a while since my last post but I have been painting...just not on the dwarf.

Here's a close-up on an effect I've seen others do with some synthetic grass. I just used an old paint brush, chopped off the tip and glued it to the base.

The rest of these pictures show basically just the base coats. I haven't gotten into highlighting or washing yet.

Did a little bit more with the dwarf. Got some grasses on his base and colored it. Also finished all of his base colors.

And here's the final shots of him. Sorry I forgot to crop the pictures. One cool thing about this character is his two enchanted skulls stuck on his horn. One's the skull of a wicked priest, and the other the skull of a murderer. hence one being black and one being white. This character is a lot of fun to play with in Pathfinder since each skull has spell charges on them and to activate the spell, he has to repeatedly slap a skull which is pretty comical in the middle of a battle.
