Knitting the Soul Weaver: Warmachine's Deneghra 1/5

I am excited to be getting started on a new project this week. I am going to be building and painting Privateer Press' huge Deneghra model. This is the most recent version of Deneghra ( I believe it's Denghra 3) and she is pretty big, or her mount is at any rate.

Giant undead dragon construct with a rider? Hell yeah! This is the 
kind of thing that got me into gaming in the first place.

Salamanders Commission Gallery

These guys are done, and I am pretty happy how they turned out. I really wanted them to pop and have high contrast so I did a bit of NMM work on the green but I tried to keep it in sync the Forge World color scheme.

Pining for You

What do you use to pin models?

This came up the other day on one of the forums or face book groups that I follow and I was pretty surprised by how many different answers there were.

Put the paperclip down!

A lot of people use paper clips for pinning. I have used paperclips in the past and I will probably use them in the future. They are the right size, and they are readily available. They are also super strong. They are so strong in fact, that they will totally ruin your awesome model snips.

Skitarii Skirmish 5/5

 My Skitarii Rangers are all done! They came out great, and I got some good photos too. This will probably be the last Work In Progress entry for these guys for a while. I do have a plan to make a little diorama tray for them, but I am not sure when I will be able to work on that. Before I put them on the shelf I want to talk a little about the blue Object Source Lighting I have worked into the unit.

Got glow? A trick to get Object Source Lighting like this is using transparent paint, either with a 'glaze' or through the airbrush.

I think the unit looks really good all together and that is what I was I was shooting for. When you paint a unit, as opposed to a single mini, you can focus more on the theme of the unit than on the way each individual looks. Something that might be too subtle for a single model could look great repeated across an entire unit.
