    I took a VERY long hiatus from the hobby, and recently KoW brought me back. After almost 10 years without picking up a brush it was a delight to finally give it a go. Decided to start with my favourite model, the mighty Stegadon.

    The beast is finished, not the crew though. Anyways they are in a WIP state, Hope you like it!

    First crew member is almost done too, call it a colour test of you will, I'm doing 3 members for now and If I feel it needs more I will add the other two. Not sure of it really, don't want it to look cramped.

    This Stegadon looks incredible! The greens with the silver and gold of the engine works really well together! I also really like the vibrant colours of the skink!

    I see that you were a very accomplished painter years ago and it looks like you have not lost your touch, your style is similar to mine but I think you have a cleaner finish.

    Very keen to see you progress and I'm looking forward to seeing more, the green wash on the steps is a very nice touch.

    Got any pics of your past work?

    Thank you very much guys,

    After so long it is a real pleasure to paint again, well after the shock that is seeing almost all your paints ruined...

    Of course, I used to upload to coolminiornot, here are some pics:

    This last one is very special to me, as it was my first professional sculpting work, It was sculpted for Urban Mammoth, back when Urban Wars started. I ended up doing most part of the Syntha line.

    When I saw your avatar I thought 'man, that guy seems like a sharp painter'.
    Well that's exactly what you are lol. Awesome painting with a very nice mastery of contrasts. Even though they're very, very sharp, you still manage to make it look good overall and maintain coherence. It's a real beauty to look at! hope you'll keep the good stuff coming :)

    (my eyes say thanks btw:greyalien: )

    For not picking up a brush in ten years, doesn't look like you took a break at all! And of course you would start with the biggest model you could find! The skin on the stegadon is beautiful, and the color choice on the skink is really nicely done. Awesome work!

    Amazing work! That stegadon is absolutely beautiful :artist:, how long did it take to finish him? And that bretonnian knight, wow! Do you have an army of those guys painted up too???

    Also I loved the paintbrush pikeman, well done all around! Hoping to see more!

    Well Its been a long time since I've had the time to update the Plog, I've been informed recently that I will be a father for the first time and my wife has been my top 1 priority but finally I can update it!

    Thanks!! The stegadon took more or less 2-3 months, but I can only paint ocasionally so, in the end it's been a lot less. The Bretonnian Knight is a highly converted miniature, I would say half is plastic-metal and the other half is Greenstuff. I modelled him to be a copy of the bretonnian army book cover:



    It was made for a painting competition, and I'm painting an army too yes. But my priority right now are my Lizardmen.

    The paintbrush pikeman was a prize in an online painting competition that I won. I think it was made by Gamezone but I'm not sure, it was a really fun mini to paint.

    Well, now the good stuff. I'm making a good progress with the Bastiladon, quite happy with how he looks. In the mean time I decided to restore and bring to date my Slann, he was covered in dust and badly chipped, but I didn't wanted to strip him so I repainted some bits (Horns mainly) I rebased him and proceded to add some extreme highlights to the whole model (my painting style has changed a lot with time, who knew). All in all I'm really happy with him right now. If I where to repaint him I will do things very differently BUT with just a day worth of work He is looking up to date.

    The slann looks amazing! I really like how his coloration looks like the skinks in your army! Beautiful detailing on the throne as well! Bastiladon is looking better and better each time! I really like the design on the shell!
