Brushstroke's Painting Jibber Jabber

Mon Jan 04, 2016 11:48 am

Hey everyone :)

Somehow I have only just managed to discover this site and now I have, I thought I would start a little topic to show my work so far and future progress.

I suppose it’s probably best to do a little intro about me first to set your expectations.
I've been painting for just over a year now so I’m still pretty new to this painting / gaming thang… and still consider myself a keen novice. I enjoy experimenting and trying new techniques and learning new things though...

so, here's my painting so far... would be great to hear what you think :D

My first LOTR mini was the brilliant war mumak of Harad set, which my 6 year old daughter got me for fathers day

One of the best bits of this kit is the awesome base it comes with... I chose to go with a desert theme for it

Hi Brushstroke
WOW Awesome & you say you have only been painting for a year, yikes if I could paint even close to your minis I would be quite happy. Really great work keep the photos coming, can't wait to see more of your work.
Cheers Woodelf (Steve)

Thanks Steve :)
Yes, just over a year and the pics so far are from that first year.... Just about to upload a few more pics of stuff after my Harad raiders....

Following the Haradrim raiders I moved on to painting a hero for my army.
In particular, the Golden King of Harad
(for some reason I’ve really struggled to get acceptable photos of this mini)

Just for fun, I even tried my hand at a tiny bit of sculpting too

After the king it was time for his royal guard in the form of some Abrakhan guards.
These are basically hired mercenaries… So I decided it would be nice to have them wear the King’s blue to show they were his personal guards, making them unique in my army colour scheme

So, by now I was getting a little bored with painting Haradrim and fancied doing something a bit different… which led me to painting this just for fun.

I call it, “Bad day to be a uruk hai” :D

My rabbit obsessed daughter picked a new miniature as a gift, so I thought I’d use it as the excuse to try and learn some new scenery techniques. Namely, could I make a tree and model water?

I figured I start with the tree and remembered seeing somewhere someone had made a decent looking tree from some copper wire and clay.
So, I stripped some cable I bought from a hardware shop and twisted it into something resembling a tree

Unfortunately I don’t have photos of every step of the project, but I covered the wire tree in clay and added it to my base and primed it for painting

the plan was to make the channel down the middle a stream with clear resin water so the bottom was still visible and look as real as I could make it
