Kingdom Death Scene "Surrounded in the forest"

Hi guys.

I recently had to paint a couple of minis from the kingdom Death range that come together. They are thought to be back to back, so I supposed they were covering each other.

I thought I could build a story around them So I Imagin a forest in the evening, starting to get dark and some wolves around the camp. Also, I never worked with backgrounds in minis, something that is becoming more common each day, and even more, better and better.

I want to try, but I also thought I could go farther and play with perspective to increase the surrounded sensation. Also, I thought I can do some kind of transition from the style of the mini to a "cell shade" style in the background. I was inspired by the "auto-build" books of kids too, so I thought I can do several different backgrounds or elements of the background in different planes and place them at different distances.

Obviously, it was my first time so I had some mistakes to learn from, but overall, I think this scene is amazing!

Also, soon a base step by step.

Infinity: Helots v2.

Its native inhabitants are a semi-intelligent species: the Helots. The economy of Varuna is centred around industrial biotech firms, factories and marine farms where the Helots are the main working resource.

Other 3 Helots painted a bit different than the last time. Greyish skin, some rust on bases to add contrast and broke the blue's predominance, a bit more saturated browns...

Hope you like them!

Infinity: Zulu Cobra

I recently painted those 2 miniatures from Infinity for a private collector.

Those Zulu Cobra units fit very well with the other ones of the Army I'm painting, doesn't they?

Warhammer 40.000: The twins

The Blood Angels are one of the 20 First Founding Legions of the Space Marines and were originally the IXth Legion before the Second Founding broke the Legiones Astartes up into separate Chapters of 1000 Space Marines.

They are well-known across the galaxy for their bloodthirsty nature in battle and feared for the curse of flawed gene-seed they carry. The Blood Angels are amongst the longest-living of the Adeptus Astartes, with some of the Chapter's Space Marines having served the Emperor of Mankind for over a thousand standard years.

I started those minis some time ago during a masterclass to explain how to increase painting speed using spray cenital priming. Since then, they were unfinished on my showcase until now. 

I decided to give them some work and finish the miniatures in a classical but effective way. Hope you like them.

Both minis are for sale, individually or in a pack. If you are interested, please contact me.

Kingdom Death: Pinup Wet Nurse

The Pinup Wet Nurse is the first pinup re-imagining of a Kingdom Death monster. The Wet Nurse is the most talked-about monster in our range to date. Now it's reimagined for our pinup range by Lokman!

As Always, a challenge to paint something from Kingdom Death. Also, very hard to photograph. You can't imagine how tiny and small those minis are!

This time I played with transparent clothes, so almost everything (dress, panties, bra...) has some transparency degree showing skin under it.

Hope you like it!

Infinity Umbra Legates

The Umbra. One of the most dangerous, murderous races in the entire universal warriorhood. Mysterious martial artists from an unidentified planet, the Umbra have been the scourge of the cosmos for ages. Subjugated, dominated or seduced by the EI, they have become its field assistants, a conduit through which the Evolved Intelligence makes its wishes known. They serve as the EI’s heralds, enforcers, mediators, lieutenants, judges, executioners and right-hand men. Their political and military speciality is trouble, and the causing and suppressing thereof. Brought forth by the darkness, these cruel entities hold a fearsome power that the EI harnesses to inflict the worst punishments and lead mass destruction operations as their wrath seethes unmeasurably.

Hi guys. I'm back after a couple of weeks stop (I had some repairings to do at home). This is a miniature I painted some weeks ago and that some of you could saw on my Instagram. Umbra Legate!

It's a hard mini from Infinity I painted on commission. He looks great after painting work!

Infinity: Croc Man

Veteran scout squads from the brutal Paradiso front. The Regiment was founded in the wake of the Ravensbrücke Retreat debacle. After evacuating the city under the pretence of a biochemical leak, several PanOceanian divisions were deployed along the urban perimeter to stop the alien advance. Tragically, they were soon overwhelmed by superior enemy numbers. In the chaotic retreat that ensued, the remains of the decimated Polynesian Division lost contact with their Command post and decided to mount a desperately fierce last stand in the Financial District, overlooking the jungle around it. Their sacrifice made it possible to evacuate the defenceless rearguard garrison and campaign hospitals. By the time they were able to regroup, eighty per cent of the Division was KIA. The survivors formed the core of the Crocodile Men Regiment. Although the Regiment is no longer composed exclusively of ethnically Maori people, they still observe the traditions of its founders, including their distinctive tattoos and subdermal piercings. Croc Men specialize in missions involving Covert Incursion, Surveillance, Tactical Recovery, and Search and Destroy in enemy territory. Their preferred MO is to appear unexpectedly, attack viciously for a moment and then withdraw back into the shadows, giving the enemy little time to react. Croc Men are known to be ferocious enemies, the kind that is best not to aggravate… at least not if you haven’t gotten around to choosing a colour for your coffin.

Another addition to the Combined Army I'm painting on commission. Croc Man is an awesome miniature very easy to paint and with one of the best-sculpted faces I found on this scale. I had a very good time painting this guy.

Kingdom Death: Pinup Chef Female

Many Great Game Hunters would readily accept death before accepting a poor meal. Their travelling kitchens are obstinately impractical, able to produce a feast under even the harshest circumstances. Rival houses know that a surefire way to hamstring their competitors is to find a weakness in their kitchen. An extra-rich stew laying too heavy in the belly or a spoiled, gut-wrenching ingredient may be a hunter's undoing. To this end, hunters shower their chefs with riches and keep the threat of grievous harm close at hand.

Painting Kingdom Death pinups it's always something strange to me. I'm always afraid before starting because they are usually very hard and fragile miniatures who deserve very special care and I'm not always confident enough in my skills. Also, at the same time, I enjoy a lot the challenge and I usually like them a lot once done.

This time it was harder for me, don't know why but it finished not in the way I had previously in my head, not worst or better, just different. 

This time I don't know what to say about her.

Infonity: Orc with feuerbach

Only the best soldiers can aspire to join the heavy infantry units that make up the Heavy Tactical Group, better known as “Orc Troops”. The nickname, Orc, originates from the name of the company that develops their combat armour, the ORC Corp. (Omnia Research Creation Corporation). The Orc Troops have earned the reputation of being veterans that always take part in the most aggressive operations. As multi-purpose heavy infantry, Orc troops are assigned to the fronts of the most intensive battles, to establish the toughest line of resistance, and to try and break through the enemy lines.

As another complement of the infinity combined army, I'm painting as commission, this Orc is one of the funniest miniatures I painted recently. Cold tones are a priority here, also an intense blue was a requirement. 

Hope you like it.

Infinity: Helots

Its native inhabitants are a semi-intelligent species: the Helots. The economy of Varuna is centered around industrial biotech firms, factories and marine farms where the Helots are the main working resource.

Another Infinity Commission work. 3 Helots to add to the combined army I'm painting for a customer.
