I've posted pictures of my minis previously over in the CB Infinity forums, but thought is was time to post some of my work over here as well. First up I'm posting some better photos of my Combined Army miniatures.
And now to my recent paintjobs. I thought I'd take a break from my PanO minis and start on some Mercs.
What can I say Sihook..... you are one of my favorite painters of all time!! I love your style! I lurk the oz forum every now and again to check out what else your workin on. I stopped posting there cuz I figured I just wasn't good enough to contribute positively! Out of this world work!
To date you still have on of the only Pan O armies I like! I am YJ afterall
Still painting and collecting my PanO and CA, but who can stick with just two armies? So Yu Jing here I come.
I've been struggling with colours for my first Yu Jing miniature, I think I've repainted his head (I always start with the head to get the miniature's character) about 5 times until I was happy with it. I love this mini, both the pose and design, so as a result it was a pleasure to paint once I was happy with the scheme.
Next on the painting table is a converted Yu Jing Spec Op.
The recipe for the armour colour is a base of VMC orange brown with a wash of GW agrax earthshade, it's then highlighted up with P3 ember orange.
Daniel, thanks for the support. Gav's a good friend of mine and also a great painter too and we often bounce painting suggestions off each other. At one stage I was going to paint the shotgun with an olive body but decided against it. I will be using field grey on the fatigues of the Yu Jing that aren't fully armoured up to add a different tone.
What a lovely group of minis! The Shasvastii are the business! I love the little skin spots, and the egg the seed soldiers are hatching from. How did you pull the egg effects off, complete with viscera?
Well another Yu Jing mini finished, this time it's the Gui Feng Spec Op, I did a minor conversion to it by removing the pistol and knife and replacing it with a combi-rifle from a Celestial Guard mini. I just wanted the miniature to be holding his main weapon and I think the pose suited the swap (also it's easier to proxy for another basic model). I'm really enjoying painting the Yu Jing, so next in line is the Hsien
Thanks for the comments, I really appreciate them.
Don't be too hard on yourself Section 9, I'm a slow painter so I'll probably have a fully painted usable Yu Jing force ready for my son to play with for his 18th birthday......he's 2 now! I bet you've got a whole lot more miniatures painted than me.
