Flieger`s Painting Bunker

Painting miniatures, convertions and some thoughts about it.

New WIP photos of KIrpal Singh.

Not a big upgrade since the last photo, but still a progress. The reason why I paint so slow is simple - I just installed Fallout 2 and can do nothing but play it.

Meanwhile, if you`re in a good mood you can add me on Steam to play some co-op games from time to time. 

Stay tuned!

Pure awesomeness, finally. 

WIP time!
Back into painting again.Teutonic Knight is purely experimental - I don`t even have a painting scheme for him. I use him as some kind of a polygon for practising new techniques.
I use my standart Acontecimento scheme for Kirpal. The only difference is that I plan to paint him a bit darker than my usual AC troops.

Finally we finished our camp work and are back to our place.

We had a dye-sub printer there to print cups for children, but we couldn`t resist using it for our own purpose. The result is on the photos - two nice looking cups with GDA and Zerat artwork.  

Flieger`s Holidays

Ok people, important note here.

Me and savage-explosive are going to work as councellors in a language camp. We will be away till the 15th of July, so there will be no posts on FPB for 30 days or so.

Don`t worry - I do not abandon my blog, it`s just a temporary break. Once I`m back to my place, I return to painting and posting stuff.

In case of having Wi-FI there, I`ll be in touch with you and will be able to answer your questions.

Have a happy summer and good luck, folks!

Flieger`s out.

Montesa Knight little convertion.

I really like Montesa Knight + Peacemaker combo, where Montesa is a hardhitter and Peacemaker supporting him. The only thing that prevents me from fielding this is the absence of Montesa with a spitfire. I can always buy a Peacemaker, but there`s only way to get the Montesa armed with this weapon - convertion.

I bought Indigo Spec-Ops blister and took a spitfire from it. I wanted to have options. that`s why I didn`t cut off his combi rifle and glue spitfire in its place. Instead, I copied the spitfire and his arm using Instant Mold and greenstuff and then I put them together.
I drilled three holes (one in the body and one in each of hands) and glued 2.00mm magnets into them. 

You can see final result on the pics (the basecoat made the last one a bit too shiny). The copy has some flaws, but looks pretty nice. Hope you`ll like it.

Trauma-Doc is done. 

Had a really hard time with this model.
I had to resculpt her fingers with greenstuff because I accidentally dropped it and the fingers broke off. Moreover, the overall sculpt is not the best in Infinity range. To say the least.

On the battlefield she is… erm, I can`t find appropriate words.
See for yourself: by now she has killed 3 Bagh-Maris, Two GdAs and 4 Knights of Montesa, all with her Doctor skill. Nuff said.

If only Acontecimento Shock Army could enlist Bipandra…

UPD: Pics updated.

Finally all our packages arrived! Now we have lots of Infinity stuff:
Kirpal Singh (love the mini and its statline)
Machaon (badass doctor, would be a nice companion to Achilles)
Pretas\Gakis for savage-explosive (cheap bastards who are great at killing tons of my troops on the first opponent`s turn)
Regular Sniper (because I like to use many snipers in my AC army)
Indigo Spec-Ops (nice mini and a weapon pack for conversions)
Overall, a good addition to our armies. Stay tuned!

00:00 Painting Experiments.
I`m in search of new interesting ways of painting damaged and chipped armor. Being extremely impressed by this splendid work, I tried to imitate this technique. If the whole mini turned out to look good enough, it`ll be a good reason to finally start painting my Panoceanian Knights… And turn them into the playable Infinity army.
Stay tuned!

Sudden commission - Vampire Counts Wight King.

I like Vampire Counts minis, they`re my favourite ones of WHFB. Most likely I`ll paint more of them as a commission somewhen in July or later.

Though it`s only a tabletop quality, I like the way it came out. Hope you`ll like it too. 
Stay tuned!
