Vampire Lord - Practising Painting

Fancy meeting you here!


Oh so long since my last post. Forgive me for I have sinned. Prioritising real life always makes me resent not being able to hobby for a living... Anyway I have now submitted my PhD and I am awaiting my viva on Friday the 16th of November. However, in other good news I am also fairly certain I will be moving to Nottingham for a post doc in the new year and so be right by the hobby mecca!

Anyway, enough of that. I have been trying out other painting techniques in my spare time (as well as painting for Winters Seo) on spar miniatures I have lying around. So here we are with my Vampire Lord. I'm thinking of making him into a diorama. 





Thoughts my friends?

Peace out,

Rob

  2. I've never been a fan of that sculpt, but the paint job looks fantastic. Particularly the reds, both on the armour and the wing.

    1. Hopefully his base will sell the pose of the sculpt even more to you mate

  3. Nice vibrant colours but maybe some wet blending is in order on the membrane parts? And... where did you go, you didn’t call, we were worried, no emails, no texts... ;) Glad you got your work done and good luck with the review. Nottingham eh? That can only be good for the hobby, what’s the fairer 30kplus40k think of that (Miss S)
