Dungeoneers and 40K Traitor Master of Ordnance

First up, we have the nearly finished WIP miniatures from yesterday:


The wizard is nearly finished: I just need to pop down to the shops today to pick up a special paint medium to make the magical colours look, well, more magical. The Ranger will be finished today -he'll have a forest base. The wizard originally had a plain grey dungeon base, but the colour combination just didn't work. So she ended up with painted dungeon tiles instead.

Finally, here's a 40K Traitor Guard Master of Ordnance I kit-bashed and painted on a break. The actual painting took about 15 minutes.

He's still a little shiny due to the numerous glazes he's received. That'll sort itself out after a coat of anti-shine varnish.

  1. Those are great. I like the wizard best, but the Ranger is also excellent. Just 15 minutes to paint the traitor? That's amazing.

  2. Thanks Lucky Joe. With regards to the traitor though, bear in mind that the fifteen minutes actual painting time doesn't include the ten minutes spent waiting around for inks to try.

    Because I have limited time for painting my own armies, I try to pick colour combinations that allow me to shade a whole miniature with just one or two washes. It's not a technique I would use for painting a customer's miniatures. They don't pay me to do a rush job, after all.

  5. I am sooo stealing the idea for Master of ordnance! Well done on him! He still looks great and will serve nicely as a playing piece!

  7. "Because I have limited time for painting my own armies, I try to pick colour combinations that allow me to shade a whole miniature with just one or two washes."

    I started doing that with my stuff. It's much easier than painting the fatigues, webbing, packs, gloves and straps all different colours. :)

    That wizard miniature looks nice too - I especially like the little dragon.

  8. Thank you all. She could have been Daenrys now that you mention it, but she's painted up as one of the characters from a D&D campaign. The little dragon is her Pseudodragon familiar.

    @Siwoc: You'll need a tank commander's body, the head from a Cadian officer, the legs of a Catachan Officer, a Cadian Vox-unit, Cadian binoculars and some arms from various Cadian infantry and heavy weapon crews. Your best bet is to go on ebay. There are a number of sellers that sell the required pieces. I got most of this guy (with the exception of the Vox unit) from a single seller. Search for Imperial Guard Tank Commander on ebay.co.uk and you'll see what I mean.

    1. She's wearing too many clothes to be Dany, surely?
