28mm Forge World Primarch - Vulkan WIP 13h 40m

Hi All,

A very busy/productive day today, with almost all the painting work completed on Vulkan. Need to finish the bronze areas, attach the separate parts, maybe some touch-up & finally some varnish then he's done.

28mm Forge World Primarch - Vulkan WIP 7h 0m

Hi All,

Alas Vulkan's hand didn't arrive in time for me to work on the main body today (I'm assured i'ts on its way to me as I type). The alternate plan went ahead & I completed the work on the backpack. Again, very happy with the results.

28mm Forge World Primarch - Vulkan WIP 4h 30m

Hi All,

I've had one of those days were everything I've painted I've been really happy with, uncommon for a picky painter like myself.

All the parts I started on Vulkan yesterday are now complete & ready to attach to the main body (once complete).

All being well I can get my hands on Vulkan's missing hand this evening, then I can start work on the main body. If not I will work on his backpack.

Forge World Primarch - Vulkan WIP 1h 30m

Hi All,

I hope you had a great weekend! I made it two weekends in a row of hobby goodness, more of that over on my hobby blog.

As for today, it's all about the big guy - Vulkan. Yes today I started a new commission, Vulkan Primarch of the Salamanders. This is a resin kit from Forge World, which means super detail. Unfortunately it also meant I missing left hand & lots of time spent in preparation. Thankfully FW 'were on the ball' & sent out a replacement hand today & the clean-up process wasn't all that bad.

With all the prep work completed I set to work adding some undercoats, apart from the main body, which will wait until hand is attached.

I also added some basecoats to the base, dragon shouldered/cloak & head, all of which I haven't glued onto the main mini yet ( to aid with painting).

This minis being painted to my High Tabletop level (one step down from my finest work), so tomorrow I will start adding washes & highlights to those parts painted today.

Loose End - Hordes Prep 0h 30m

Hi All,

Sadly Vulkan couldn't get here in time for today as planned, So work will start on him Monday.  In the meantime I decided to work on some Hordes minis a regular customer had left with me. Unfortunately we hadn't agreed on colour schemes so the best I could do was get them undercoated. I will start work on these after Vulkan. The Hordes minis consist of Lylyth, Shadow of Everblight, Forsaken & a Blighted Nyss Hex Hunters unit

The rest of my day was free to paint my own minis (a rare treat). I Intend to have similar treats for the remainder of the week as It's my birthday tomorrow. I'm currently working on my 15mm sci-fi minis which I will post over on my hobby blog when completed.

Hi All,

Conclude! (as they say in Portuguese). Yes the Portuguese are completed. Blacklining, bases & varnishing are all done. I'm also really pleased with the completed pics below. I've had a great time painting these minis, lots of colour/character & the sculpts are spot on.

All being well Im seeing the customer for my next commission this evening, this will be one of those lovely Forge World Primarchs - Vulkan of the Salamanders. As the Salamanders are one of my favourite chapters, I'm looking forward to this one.
