Yellow-Black Chevrons recipe by Ravenswood

Yellow-black chevrons, or stripes, are a fairly simple and interesting way to make a focal point on the miniature or diversify the color scheme. It does not require any special technique or perfect blending to do this element well . On the contrary, some roughness will only improve the result.

For colors, any Golden NMM recipe is suitable for us, in which only the application technique will be changed. We will consciously minimize the contrast.

Woodelf dryad. Part 2

Many pics about conversion.
I took Yvraine body and few details (Triumvirate of Ynnead, GW). Plus a few woodelf bits. And Tamiya Epoxy Putty of course.
It was the biggest conversion work in my miniature experience.

Woodelf dryad. Part 1

This was a very very big and long project that I did last spring.
I did conversion works and it took many hours. The painting was a little bit easier but also not fast.
In this part you could find pics of Dryad without a cloak.

Scalecolor Artist NMM recipe

While testing new colors range firstly I always search for basic NMM recipes. So there is a basic steel NMM recipe for the Scalecolor Artist range:
Base mix - Art Black + Dark Brown Ochre.
Next add Primary Blue to the base mix 'till it be a very little bit more blue than grey.
Highlight that with adding Art White 'till pure white.

Abaddon the Despoiler

 Abaddon the Despoiler, Archenemy of the Imperium and Warmaster of Chaos.
And also my longest paintwork in 2019. I am not 100% satisfied by this work but anyway I am very like how in looks at the end.
I tried to learn some new tricks but maybe I am just too old dog for that.
In 2018 I painted Heresy era Abaddon, this year - a 40K one. And it seems like 2020 will be also year of Heresy era Abaddon. The last Abby as I hope.

Malifaux Monday #100 and the last: Nightmare Whiskey Golem

Here is the last episode of the Malifaux Mondays. It was a long project but any good things will end one day.
This Nightmare Whiskey Golem was painted around a year ago while I only tested the Pacific88 paints and all wood barrels  was painted by those colors.  I think it was a good result so now I mainly use P88 browns for minis.

But you know, if something old was ended when something new would begins.

Inquisitor Greyfax

Finally, I did pictures )))
I painted Greyfax a few months ago. At first she was a little bit pinker than I e[pected while painted her. So I needed some more time to do her armor redder. I will post some photo with early version later.
There are a few small conversions. I lost her left arm while I was cutting mold lines, so I took arm from old metal Sister of battle canoness. Also I filled the hollows on her coat with epoxy putty and leveled it. (I don't like some "built-in" freehands)
Hope you like her!
This miniature is for sale. (pm me to ainagozmf  () gmail.com )
