From KyleC: Randoms (35 Points)

Random Wednesday post of randomness...

I say this as I have been working building up my 2 Chaos Knight/Titans ( dunno what they would be in the end! )... and in between the drying of the putties I have been painting some randoms.











First up is the 2nd Deamon Prince ( the 1st being completed previously ). I think the purple really shines on this and I am really happy with how it came out in the end.



He now sits in with the rest of the army as a whole in the above photo.. so happy with how it looks and more so with how it plays up!


But speaking of randoms, I also have painted up the 2 new pieces from www.mrleesminis.com that will be released in January. Mini-busts that will be supplied with magnets to make them sit nicely on the fridges and painting lamps of many a painter world wide :D













The Beaver Lumberjack Skull and the old bearded man. Both sculpted by a good friend of mine out of Ukraine and a lot of fun to paint up. Quick pieces that stand about 30 and 40 mm each. I suspect I will need to paint more of them and try out new things like OSL or something.









Last piece painted is this quirky little pumpkin from another good friend of mine, this time from Greece. I was painting this up alongside my wife while she tried her hand at hers. Worked on it to give her some moral support as she was painting so that I could show her some steps as and when she asked.

And the 2 pieces I am working on building up and looking forward to painting very soon!





Monsters in their own rights... and taking their time and then some to get done right before I even think about painting them up!

Enjoy!

Ooh, what a wonderfully varied and fun post! Absolutely lovey stuff, Kyle. Your Daemon Prince is marvellously icky, I especially like his purple guts and nasty rusted blade - his gasmask covered head is particularly chilling. 

Your two fridge magnets/busts are excellent as well. The skin tone on the bearded fellow is superb and that pumpkin is just plain demented (I love his ripening green topknot/stem. Excellent stuff. 

Finally, the sneak peak shots of your upcoming Chaos knights are very tantalizing. It's plain that there is some serious conversion work going on - I look forward to seeing these two done and stomping onto the blog to be viewed in all their horrific glory. 

As to points, I'm going to call the Daemon Prince similar to a dreadnought, while the busts and pumpkin being equal to 28mm models.   So, with a bit added for the conversion work, we'll call it 35 points. Thanks for treating us to your 'randoms'!

  1. Amazing work Kyle! That beaver lumberjack minibust really cracked me up :)

    Really excited to see how your knights come up. I was planning on doing a similar duo myself with the Glottkin and Knight kits. Your efforts will definitely work as an inspiration

    1. Thanks! I found it hilarious also, and looking forward to painting more copies of it in the future :)
      Glad to hear that the knights will cause inspiration, now to just get them finished up.

  2. Most impressive! Really like your Nurgle force. I‘m quite sold on the colour scheme I have to admit.

    1. Thanks mate! When lined up they really turn out to be good. And easy enough to paint up which is also a great side effect :D

  3. WOW that some impressive work all around. How did you manage that blood efect on the Chaos knights blade? It might be the best of that sort of work I have seen.

    1. Tamiya Red clear, purple ink. Layer it on with both being quite thin. Comes out great in the end.

    1. The pumpkin was my favorite out of the lot so far. More so since I was painting it alongside my wife. Will post up hers as/when she gets it finished ;)

  8. Random indeed but very cool as well. Like Peter the pumpkin in my favourite, I think as much because of your choice of palette as anything.

    1. Cheers for that! Was a simple color scheme but lots of play with it.

  9. Great stuff, the daemon Prince looks quite post apocalyptic and would fit in there too.... or have I been playing too much Fallout!

    The Knights are inspired... just one Knight kit and the Glotkin I guess?

    1. Yes, one kit of each. Working on the glotkkin based one first before proceeding to the knight based one. Getting a bit bogged down in details at the moment on him though...

  10. Nice work alaround, Kyle! Besides the excellently icky paint on the demon prince, it is bothersome that he appears to be grinning in that mask! ;)
    I love the lumberjack beaver and the pumpkinhead is ace!
