This Week In Painting: 03/23/09

I finished up a couple of small commissions this past week. Just some random reaper minis, but they turned out to be a lot of fun. I gotta say, I’m a fan of Werner Klock’s sculpting. He’s one of the few mini sculptors that seems to be able to nail the feminine figure in miniature, and do it consistently.

We have the dynamic duo, the paladin in green, and the anti-paladin in purple. Enjoy!

Grey Knight Justicar, Ahoy!

Well, I got the first Grey Knight Justicar all finished up in time to post today. Hope you like him 🙂

I like how the base came out. The armor was painted using the official scheme, though next time I’ll thin out the blue ink just a tad more. Likewise the purple ink on the fabric will be thinned a bit. Still, for a first try, not too shabby. The purple livery is going to be one of the binding visual elements for my army. Both the Sisters of Battle, and the Grey Knights, along with the Inquisitor in charge, will all have some purple livery on them.

The spade on his personal heraldry was my first attempt at using waterslide transfers. Yeah, I know it’s a tad off-center, but not enough to notice at a glance on the table-top. My idea is to have each grey knight squad have a different suit. This one is the Ace of Spades, the rest of his squad will be sporting spades with some different black patterns mixed into the red background. At least, they will whenever I get my hands on some more grey knights to paint 😛
