Back to the Brushes 155

As this years painting challenge draws near to completion so do the three pieces of WW2 German armour that will be a part of my final submission.

20mm WW2 vehicles have become a constant part of the challenge submission as this the seventh that I have been involved with draws to a close. Next year it will probably be on to the desert war if any 20mm WW2 is included in the challenge for 2018-19

There are also a couple of Ninja's, three undead 15mm's and up to 8 Romano Brits not shown.

Some more completed figures to follow shortly and the last rush for the challenge end date.

Cheers for now

Fantasy Hero 9

A couple of retro fighters from Citadel; both of which have recently appeared in the Analogue Painting Challenge.

First is Sir Cador Celestor a Lawful Knight from the early days of Citadel.

Below is Cedric who originally appeared in the third Citadel Compendium. Missed him then and caught up with him after a late night eBay purchase.

Kept the colour scheme on this figure simple as the pose of the figure does most of the work for him.

Both figures are hex based and Cedric below being a slotta based figure is on a plastic hex. Cador's base is like all other bases here from Warbases.

Below is a group shot of all four fighters together

Cheers for now

Blood and Souls for my Lord Arioch 6

Another two retro Chaos Warriors from Citadel that have recently been submitted in the Analogue Painting Challenge.

Had originally thought about changing the colour of the cloak on this Chaos Warrior, however, now that he is off the painting table the colour is starting to grow on me.

The sculpt on this figure has lost some of its detail over his thirty four years plus life span. A feeling that we can all relate to in some shape and form.

Next up is a variant figure from the Citadel Compendium 2 - a different helm and weapon are the main changes.

The mix of colours go well and glad that "Gilded" effect on the armour doesn't look too gaudy. Base colour was Foundry Brazen A, washed with a mix of Citadel Gryphonne Sepia and Army Painter Strong tone then highlighted with the base colour again.

Next up are some other fantasy figures to oppose the forces of Chaos.

Cheers for now
