Title: Maenís Painting Diary take II
Post by: Maenoferren on 08 October 2018, 11:21:34 PM
Well having been out of the Pendraken forum and Painting 10mm I thought I had better restart both.
My Mongols have been sitting there for at least two years, probably more... so after a quick paint of the Amazonís (I wanted to make sure I could still see the minis) I made a start on my Mongols.

https://bogenwaldblog.wordpress.com/2018/10/08/mongol-horses/
 All of my 10mm work is tagged on my blog, but there is plenty of other stuff there to have a mooch at too.

I tend to add to my blog every day, but I will keep the updates here to a minimum.

The Mongols still have a long way to go as these are only the light cavalry and command stands.

Tonight I am going to have to scan my heavy and Medium cavalry to see if Ghengis and Jebei are hiding amongst them.

A smidge more done tonight, three different colours for the tunicss.

I never did look for Ghengis!

Those are coming together nicely :)

I think we all go through the "those all look crap" stage, it is surprising how rapidly that can change once you start to add details

Very true  :-bd

I managed to do socks and blazes on the horses tonight. I was too tired to do anything else. But a teeny amount of progress is still progress

Great to see you making steady progress :). Even 30 minutes a night can make a difference and at least you feel you have done something gaming related :).

Medium Cavalry are Finished. The flag was caused by some knacker severing a hand! It was easier to make a flag with a pin and Greenstuff than a 10mm hand.
https://bogenwaldblog.wordpress.com/2018/10/20/medium-cavalry-finished/

I am taking a short break from 10mm for a while as I need to paint up a 15mm HOTT Conquistador army for a tournament on 19th November.
Posts on those shenanigans are on the blog too

My HOTT troops are finished, but tonight I started on the Stronghold and built up areas.
https://bogenwaldblog.wordpress.com/2018/10/31/building-tenochtitlan/
I think the temple would work with 10mm and be rather imposing. I will have to check.

Thanks guys,
My initial thought was to add vine# and creepers etc, but as I have an Aztec army, then it seemed weird to make them ruined.
I wanted a different base for the Lurkers than sand and flock. These are meant to hide in rough terrain, hence the leaves etc.

Been busy of late, amazingly I won the tournament in both points and then for the best stronghold. Came second in the themed army too. So all in all quite chuffed!
I also started on my Dark Future Vehicles, this is the latest post in a few if them...
https://bogenwaldblog.wordpress.com/2018/11/17/dark-future-motorcycles/

Once these are done it is back to my 10mm Mongols.

Post by: Techno on 18 November 2018, 10:32:42 AM
Nice work, 'M' !

The other shots are terrific, too !!

When I get a nice sunrise, or sunset, over here.....I get the same 'bleaching' (?) effect, if I take a piccy....'Cos I can't be bothered to set the camera up 'properly'.
I just mess around with one of the progs on the PC, until I get as close to possible on what I actually saw, and save that.

When it's not.   X_X X_X X_X X_X X_X

I suppose we have to be very thankful that we don't get the truly awful forest fires that are happening 'over the pond', at the mo.....

Army painter Dragon red, with a highlight of AP pure red.
You were pretty close you used the word red in both ideas. So half marks 😉

Cheers guys, much appreciated. One day I will get back and finish them.
Since then I have been working on various 28mm minis.
These are the latest.
https://bogenwaldblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/17/nursey-ready-for-action/

I have also done a pile of Orc rifles and a ghoul officer.
I will try and get back to my 10mm soon. I have some mongol heavy cavalry, not to mention infantry and civilians to paint up so that the whole force is done.
