A small operation shaping up

I was so pleasantly surprised by the joy of seeing my minis all together in the last groupshot, that I had to make one with these guys as well. These will all be part of the same retinue - a small opration which area of expertise will soon be revealed.

Jäeger the Debt Collector finished

A bit of sparetime, rain and an really exciting audiobook have kept me at the painting table and I have finished Jäeger in no time :D wasn't sure about the red helmet, but I wanted something to draw attention to the face/head - works fine after all I think. Not as advanced a model like the more recent ones but I really like him.

Small Imperial taskforce

Couldn't resist a groupshot even though they were not made to be in the same unit - look good together none the less I think.

Rodrigo Menéndez de Márques finished

Finished off by adding the last few shades and powders to the base. Really happy with this mini and I'm actually thinking this might be my best piece ever. I'm especially pleased with the scrolls and the face - and the candles of cause :D 

So I proudly present;

High Cleric of the Holy Church of Terra, Void Marshall, Protector of the Throne, Conquistador Prima of The Imperial Navy, Arch Confessor and Inquisitor Lord (..and WBO heavyweight champion of the world)

Last few details

Just need to finish off the base now - tried to work in some OSL on the candles but simply couldn't make it work, so they ended up without. Quite happy with the candles in all other aspects, not the last time I've added those to minis, that's for sure.

Painting progress and better colordisplay

Besides the progress on the mini I decided it was time to try out a different "display unit" for WIP photos, as I have been annoyed with the way colors were displayed when on the green cutting mat or whit tissue. So I cooked up this little display stand, which works pretty well I think. Might optimise slightly with a change in size for the imperial goose and add a bit of 3d effects.

Speedpainting...for me anyway

Really fast progress with the Inq Lord, this is about 3½-4 hours paintjob in all - which is really fast compared to my usual speed. Really like the way he's coming along - bought one of the gloss nuln oil washes from GW, perfect for black armour.
As I gave him a Spanish sounding name, I figured I'd try out a more brown skincolor, worked out pretty well IMO.

Trying to get that black looking black

Painting is continuing, really hoping the armour will look black once finished. Trying to keep the rest in a good mix of shiny imperial and dirty Inq28 style.
