Moving out

Well, after five years years of studying and living in Kraków (very nice city in the southern part of Poland) I'm moving back to my home town. I figured I'd take this opportunity to show my workspace. I didn't have too much space here so I needed to keep everything well organised. That's why I made these shelves for paints. The allowed me to use the space available well and also made everything more convenient as I had easy access to everything. I'll need to think about something similar in my new place.



Also, I've painted the first of the solos for my Cryx army - Pistol wraith.



I have nothing but respect for people from Privateer Press who design and create these awesome models. The sculpt is great and full of unique character. I didn't like this version initially but when I started working on it, I could really appreciate the quality of the model. The other version is also great. In fact, I'm expecting it to arrive any day now as I've made an order a couple of days ago.



I tried to make it look old and weathered. The bone elements were painted with a bit more contrastive highlights. I thought that it may make them look more ancient. I also try to keep a more or less unified color scheme for the army. So grey and silver were obvious choices for me here. I try to have some green elements on each of the minis from this army. I also thought that this would add a more ghostly and ethereal look to the mini.



So that it for this update. Now I will work on the first unit for the army. I'll probably start by painting a single model to check the color scheme. Anyway, expect an update soon.

Cheers,
Viruk

  2. Thank for the comment. I used the same technique that I normally use while painting flame (i.e. going from the brightest to darkest colors). I guess it worked out not too bad in the end :)

  5. Excelent job on the pistol wraith. The colour pallete you used makes it look very dark and menacing and the bright green flame provides a nice contrast. I've been tempted to start a Cryx army lately and seing this wraith tempts me even more. Will I succumb to the temptations? Time will tell...

  6. I know the feeling all too well ;) WARMACHINE is a very cool, fast paced and dynamic game and the minis are great too. They also offer a nice alternative to GW stuff. I'm not recommending giving up on GW entirely, it's just that more variety is always good in this case ;)
