Tutorial – Painting Bronze

In the German-speaking Facebook group for the Footsore products I was recently asked how I paint bronze. The answer is quite simple and is as so often: it depends. Depending on what you paint, there are different ways to paint bronze. In the following I will show you how I paint bronze parts on undead.

First of all, I didn't use a common metallic paint here, but mixed one. Why all this, when there are ready-made metallic paints? Well, metallic paints have a few annoying properties - they tend to pull skin quickly, or are too thick or too runny. They don't always cover well and are hard to control.

Dino’s Annual Summary 2020

As regular visitors of the Chaosbunker will have noticed, there have been rather few articles from my hand lately, which is why it's time to approach the year 2021 with a little more consistency and regularity. For many it is certainly no surprise when I say that 2020 was rather mediocre, but let's take a look at it together...

This was 2020

Basically, the year didn't start out bad at all. I went into my ongoing projects with a lot of motivation, wanting to both start a new gang for Frostgrave and finish the one I'd already started.

A miniature Odyssey – The Gates of Hades…

…have opened and the last block for the Summer Project 2020 is finished. Since I already had some practice with the skeletons from Warlord Games, it didn't take long to paint the last six of them.

A miniature Odyssey – With Spear and Shield

When you think of ancient Greece, you simply cannot help but think of a Hoplite armed with a shield and spear. Logically many Hoplites died in the battles and so it is not surprising that I painted some skeletons with exactly this combination of weapons for the second block for the summer project.

A miniature Odyssey – Block 1? Done!

A month has passed and I am really happy that I managed to finish the first block for the Summer Project before the time ran out. Skeletons are a bit unspectacular themselves, so there is not much to tell about them despite the successful completion of this stage.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part IX

The bases are done, the shields glued to the ungor skirmishers - I can call block #2 for the summer project ready and done! Another 6 beastmen for the Hooves and Fur warband finished.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part VI

I finished the shields in a very worn down look, gave the long fur / hair a final highlight with Army Painter Necrotic Flesh WP1108 and added flock to the bases, with Army Painter Battlefields Steppengrass.

Journey of the Maulers: Fans for fans

Since the beginning of the Journey of the Maulers series, which now consists of 23 articles, I have decided to paint fans for the team. After I had painted the Maulers completely, I wanted to be able to put one more fan on the bleachers for each game I played. As a small "thank you" to all who tested the Wanderleague approach with me.
