a sandbox, some playdough, and Mulg

So what do a sandbox and play dough have to do with Mulg? I used them both to finish his base.

I gathered the sand and glued it on to the base, carefully avoiding the areas that his feet were to be. After finishing all the gluing and painting, I set to painting the edge of the base. While doing so I noticed that the edge was very rough, it needed some serious filing.

I certainly didn't want to file it and re-prime the whole base so I whipped up some play dough. With it I covered the finished parts of the base. I filed off the pesky stuff, re-primed (while the finished rocks lay safely beneath play dough) and finished the edge.

Mulg The Ancient

This guy was great to paint. I ran in to some challenges, the hardest one was trying to make the purple runes "glow", especially the ones on the club(the club still doesn't look as good as I wanted it, but it's close). Another challenge was filling in ALL of the cracks and divits and such (I'm still not sure if I got all of them). Mulg is one rocky dude.

If you enlarge the picture of the club on the left, you can see some spots I missed. Arg!

P.S. He is not on his real base. I usually glue the figures I paint on a temporary base While painting them. I can handle them better that way. Large models like this are difficult to hold while painting because they are so heavy, my fingers get tired. I painted the club last because it was easy to maneuver the troll around with it while I painted the rest.

Dire Troll Mauler

I think this was the first troll I painted.

(I'm currently working on a really cool looking troll named Mulg.
Get excited, he'll be my next post)

Dire Troll Blitzer

I painted this figure a while ago. It is the first Hordes figure that I ever saw, I thought it was so cool looking. What could be cooler than a huge troll? A huge troll with a machine gunning small troll riding it, of coarse!

Here's a close up of the little "pyg" gunner. I tried to make him look dirty from the machine gun powder, but it didn't turn out quite like I wanted it.

Reaper minies

These are some"Reaper" miniatures I have painted. Reapers are some of my favorite miniatures to paint. The wolf and archer were my very first miniatures that I ever painted (about 6 years ago) They are all about the same size as the elf by the Penny.

Archdomina Makeda

This is the first warlock of mine that I painted. I modified the sculpt, following is a picture of the original sculpt painted by a professional.

Epic Kaya and Larris

Well if it isn't epic kaya and her woof, Larris. That is, wolf. I painted these several months ago, but as you know I am not a consistant blogger. Oh well, better late than never. Kaya is a small model, and Larris is medium. If you field Kaya, Larris automatically comes with her.
