The Forges are running Hot

Though it's not miniatures at all, the reason for the quietness from me here is slightly AdMech related. I have kind of started my own forge and have dived into a new hobby - knive making. And honestly it's a delight making something "useful" and seeing the projects taking shape. I'm pretty sure I will return to miniature painting at some point but for now all hobbytime is channeled into the knifeforge. Here is a couple of pics of what I've done so far and a link if anyone should be interested in following this new bug of mine.

Hook finished

First finished mini for a very long time, hopefully it wont be that long before the next one emerges.
Hook here is the second of my Void Pirates, and I'm quite happy with the way he ended up. Trying to get a brutal, non cartoony swashbuckling look in to these. Cheers.

Hook!

Long overdue painting update on Hook. I think he's actually coming along quite nicely.

Hooks in you - hooks in me

Actually I figure that this guy only listens to Iron Maiden!!! Though Hook seem to take a rather slaneeshi road - I did not plan for that at all. Doesn't look wrong though!

Different kind of hobby

No, I have not given up on little plastic men. However I have hit a bit of a slump and mojoloss, making progress slower and updates further apart.
In the same time I have started a new hobby, with a course last weekend - and I have been trying to read up on stuff for that - metalworks, woodtypes and such. This was the end result

Step 3. Lighter drybrush


Step 4. Heavy wash


Step 5. Stippling orange and green.


Step 6. Light drybrush


Step 7. Highlight drybrush

Truly nasty looking

To be honest I have been really impressed with the Tzaangors, I think GW has really hit a nightmarish combination of beaks, horns and archaic looking bits - very well done. Therefor I didn't really want to change too much with the first one here, rather just experiment a bit with the mini - get to know it so to speak. Of cause I would rather be caught dead than just making a standard mini so some small alterations are in line - which should also take it a bit away from the deamon look and fit it into my Void Pirates. Gamewise I figure it with fit right in as a beastman.
