Comission work: Demon Prince of Tzeentch!

Hey there ladies and gentlemen, dear painters!

Long time no see. I worked some time on a comission work for a friend´s friend. He was given this converted demon prince as a gift and now wanted to have it painted. This "mini" is for gaming purposes.

It is a converted white-metal classic demon price of chaos. It has a birdlike head, huuuuuuge wings (if you ask: from some kind of fancy kids-toy-dragon) and an axe with (sigh) yes, an terribly crooked axe pole (i could not correct it, don´t ask ;)).

It was fun to paint (still with no airbrush). I hope you like it!

Another topic are my black knight for this year´s golden demon (which is uncertain in germany). I will not stop to paint these guys, so don´t worry. I will not give up and post some progress soon. :)

Cheers, Solmar

Status quo and upcoming projects!

Hey there ladies and gentlemen, dear painters!

Due to an illness i had not much time to post here. But today (beside that i´m fine again) i can tell you that all the rider´s clothes are done! Holy crap, that where so many dots.. i finally did some estimation and on all riders together it were around 250.000 dots. I was really near to a tendonitis, really crazy doing stippling clothe structure to a whole unit of Horse riders with lots of clothes. ;)

But now i am facing a new problem and this problem has the name: Bones! No, i dont mean Emily Deschanel, i mean the horses bones. You know, they have got a LOT of them. ;) And i had no good paint receipe that looked good. Today i had an idea, what i liked, i will post some pics if the final result looks good. :)

And finally i will show you some upcoming projects:

First is Theoden, King of Rohan by GW:

I always wanted to paint this guy, one week ago i got the white metal Theoden off ebay. I love the sculpt but holy cow, this guy is small :) I have a really cool idea about painting the tree. Stay tuned.

And second my duel "ambush".

It is not built finished yet, i am still looking for a good victim. I think in the end it will become a space marine, but there are a lot decisions to mage in terms of pose, weaponry etc.

That´s it for now. Cheers! Solmar
