LPL 2017 final round

This post concludes my LPL series (I will return to some of my entries in more detail but as own projects)

Here is my entry for round X: Slavers of the Purple Spire (From Patalonia projetc)

And final standing. I placed on very good 14th place after 10 rounds with 5-5 win to loose ratio. I could be a little better if I could make better photos. Well, maybe next year. First 10 is beyond my skills, masters of this League are The masters indeed.

Despite risk of humiliating defeat LPL is great way to finish those blocked projects that were on my desk for years at time.. I highly recommend Lead Adventures Forum and next years  LPL itself!

Lead Painters League entries 5, 8 and 9

Almost finishing this cycle, Here are my Sci-fi entries int the latter part of LPL (except of last 10th week photo - as that round is still active)

First  my Sump pirates. I will be posting more of them in following weeks. With mutant steam cutter. These guys are straight from Patalonian Sulphur wastes stalking black steamships of Fellburgh

Next mu Underhive caravan, This entrance was made from old miniatures because I didnt manage to finish new models for this entry (still only 3 finished porters in the caravan :(

In 9th round I finished my first Inquisimunda team. Unfortunately all stock models except the Dragoon Guardsman. I have dozens of =I=28 miniatures built but those are very first finished and painted except very old 3 Henchmen done in 2008 and Drill Abbot. I hope to do more of those and already started work on next team, again mostly of stock miniatures (but I love them too much in stock to convert)

Last round will feature my Slaaneshian beastmen slavers from the Purple Spire, so stay in touch :)

Lead Painters League entries 4, 6 and 7

Another weeks taken by readying entries for Lead Painters League.

AEwulf on the road to plunder (well more his newly finished friends.) scored me a win

So did opposing frame There always rock on the road (To AEwulfs plunder :)

But poor guys stopping on Tokaido were rushed (not best photo unfortunately - and originally planed scene was impossible to shot :( and lost. Its not bad scene and I like miniatures a lot but photo is not very sharp

I skipped round 5 but it will thematically better fit with next batch of sci fi entries

Another 40k Starter set and another cultists on the horizon

This time its called Dark Imperium and sets Nurgle plague marines against new and super smurfy Space Marines.
Again they look monopose and snap fit, this time Nurgle flavored, but apart from guts on the loose one they will be spot on for any chaos god after appropriate paintjob. All are mutants though so their cultist use is reserved for Openly heretical or Undercity cults. Most of them will work in fantasy too.
My favorite is coated one with tentacle. I just need to find him suitable head.

 DV cultist looked much more sinister (those guys are very happy about being cultist) and could be used for much more. The were very easily de-cultised and work as Cawdor or plain normal Imperial civilians. So I doubt those new guys will see so many uses as their versatility is lower. I painted only 10 as cultist proper, but used more than that as basis for different conversion work like those porters.

In the other news.. Truescale Marines fodder is upon us in the same starter, they will help my conversion work very much.

And last but not least Plaguemarines themselves.. I have to admit they (in similar way to DV Chaos marines) are cherry on the cake - best models in the set - I might break and have do some Nurgle after all.. :(

Lead Painters League entries 1-3

I had a little downtime with painting, among many reasons why is I signed for participation in Lead Adventures Forum painting league.

I was closely following this epic 10 week painting challenge (with elements of competition) and decided that it will help me work under pressure of time and finish some projects I wouldn't for years.
I don't aim for any high place - as participants are top class painters and photographers - my aim it to be in top half of the list of 38 participants. How will it ends remains to be seen but so far so good :)
I won two duels with randomly generated in Swiss format pair of participants and I lost one.

Rules are to present a group of 5 newly painted miniatures in some appropriate environment/scene - and then participants are paired in duels and LA forum members had to vote for one of each pair of participants. Its really most interesting challenge/contest I ever saw with some absolutely epic works of miniature painting art and presenting the unique scenes. While painting is most important both storytelling and photography skills matters in such contest.

As I know my painting limits I went for interesting scenes in most of my entries.
Here are my entries for first three rounds and I will successfully post my entries in incoming weeks. Wish me luck (luck is to not be randomly paired with one of the insanely skilled leaders of the competition :P

1 week: Late Delivery

2 week : Do we need this ? - photo is to unfocused to show miniatures really - deserved loss here
 Ancient Forest - should be a little more focused but I think those are my best painted miniatures entered :)

My miniature photography suxx but I am learning a lot making those photos.

Knights of Patalonia

Somewhere in the Sulphur Wastes..
                As an opposition for my wild mutants of the Sulphur wastes here come techniknights of Patalonia. best of the best of the Felburgh elite. With their ancient archaic power armors Sir Lodovico the Fist and Sir Rolf the Wofl. Both knights have their patron saints and their symbols were taken as a personal heraldry and the Icon for their Ordonance Lances as no knight could quest alone, especially without people to support and service their power armors..

Sir Lodovico the Fist is leader of Questing knights of Fellburgh, He travels into the Wastes to fights mutants and witches and other enemies of the Fellburgh. Real hero of the land..

Accompany him Sir Rolf the Wolf, aggressive and reckless youngest of the questing knights.

Here are all Fellburghians I've made so far, some of the WIPS.
next: more mutants and Ordonance Lances  of the both knights..

Patalonia the Forgotten World

As I mentioned in the earlier posting I was very Inspired by Outgard project that was/is running bu few very talented individuals mostly from Scandinavian countries and decided to gather my Outgard Inspired stuff into my personal mini project.  I wanted something similar that could combine many different groups of my miniatures into one middle ages after fall of the civilization post apocalyptic setting. And that how without much thought put into it world of Patalonia was born.

A world fallen but not quite forgotten. World that is visited each time in the decade by Black ship Crimson Angelus - great event that prompts all Patalonians to organize witch hunts for quota of psykers needed to be sacrificed to ever hungry spirit in the sky. Due to collapse of the industrial civilization on the planet tithe is nominal and gathered very rarely, but chartist captains are visiting the world regularly around every other year bringing industrial produce of closest Hive World Anubis removed by 3 months void travell.
Those two great events in the world of the planet are happening in the Old Starport - mostly ruined last stand of civilization of  Man on the planet.

Here travel riverrine convoys of Black Steamships and Free Oarsmen Brotherhoods from the Fellburgh in the west by means of Great Green River and from the east by Great Eastern Railway last heavily armored trains from Stahlburg.

Fellburgh is the formal capital, and seat of planetary Lord - Count Theodore von Stern. His domain is a former shadow of itself and compromise of 9 Houshold baronies. It is surrounded from all sides by fallen housholds - strongholds of deviants and renegades, witches, warlocks and mutants - enemies of the Man. Further to the east and surrounding Old Starport lies Sulphur wastes - a jungle-swamp desecrated by old industrialization - full  foulest mutants and beasts.
Even more to the east lies Purple Spire.. Long lost hive city which real name is long forgotten. The hellish place is ruled by Count vonStern dark counterpart -dreaded Goat of Darkness... ever plotting the fall of the Man.. Looking hungrily towards Fellburg
