  1. Very nice work @Ken! Love the color choices. If I recall, Khemsa was among the last of the stretch goal minis I painted, quite awhile back. I’ll be curious to see your home-brewed hero sheet and scenario if you wind up sharing them here.
  2. Moving so slow these days with regards to painting minis. House renovation ALMOST done. So hopefully back to normal soon. Anyways, got the last of the Dreadfleet ephemera done: a marker which indicates wind direction, or if flipped, indicates the arrival of the Maelstrom!... Actually not 100% sure what that means in terms of gameplay as I’ve not played this game yet, but I like the sound of it!
  3. The other beasties! The Leech Wrym, and the the Sea Giant!
  4. Sea beastie for Dreadfleet completed: Behold the Bone Hydra!
  5. Love the purple robes. Regal Evil....
  6. By Crom, nice work brothers! I must say, I'm not overly proud of my paint job on the Warlock... Had to dig around to find a pic. I think I was in the home stretch of finishing my Conan painting when I did a rush job on him... Looking back even a year or so, at least I can see that I'm getting incrementally better at this mini painting stuff. :)
  7. Thanks @Not Quite Dead! The ship wheels with skeleton design are used to make turns with the ships. You align the wheel on either the right or left front of the ship base and rotate the ship accordingly. The thing that looks like a ruler with a dragon/serpent skeleton is actually three sections long, totaling 18 inches, with two joints that can be pivoted and locked into place at 45 degree angles. This is used to measure movement, as well as determine range and firing arcs.
  8. Slowed down recently, house renovation took over my life. But getting the navigation tools done now. Will probably tweak a few things, but almost there...
  9. Got the major pieces of scenery done. Now for the small bits and sea monsters. Building up to tackling the ships eventually...
  10. @Ken, you can see how it worked for me on the pics I posted here on the OL. Perhaps an even better technique is to paint the robes with a very light blue, and then just dry brush white highlights over that. That’s what I did with Ares. It’s very hard to ‘paint’ on washes without getting brush streaks, especially on light colored paint. Can’t wait to see what you do with your MB minis, please post here when you can!
  11. @Ken, a side note: I can strongly recommend the color washes from Vallejo. I had a set from Army Painter, and they would get chunky sometimes so didn’t seem as reliable as Vallejo. I’ve only been using the color washes regularly for a year or so, as opposed to always reaching for a standard brown shader. The black washes are really potent and will make everything very dark, but it’s great for making shaded areas and details extremely noticeable. With color washes I’m constantly finding a lot of cool uses. For some of the Mythic Battles minis like Zeus, who have a white robe or toga, using a blue wash over bright white paint gives a great effect. I also have used the grey wash over white hair to make a good looking head of old hair that has gone grey. I’ve found that mixing a bit of red and umber wash with gold metallic paint can make for a good brass or bronze color. Also, mixing blue wash with silver paint makes for a cool blue tinted metallic effect. For the Conan dragon and the MB Hydra, I used layers upon layers of colored washes on top of white primer and got nice effects that would be hard to do with paint alone. Anyway, just my 2 cents. Again, great work on Thoth!
  12. @Ken, wow! He looks great. Most minis I paint would not hold up very well to such a close-up photo. Your Thoth really handles the scrutiny well. Impressive!
  13. Thanks so much @Not Quite Dead! These are really fun to paint so far. Assembling and painting the gorgeous ships will be challenging and fun as well I presume. Look up the game if you want to see some stunning fantasy pirate minis, especially the ones painted by experts. Here’s a few more pieces I knocked out last night:
