Just a little update. My only time to paint is so limited right now but I get 10-20 minutes here and there.

Looking good as always buddy. What is that mini on top of the dragon head? That thing is epic!

Glad to see some paint on that crazy dragon-creature too. That thing is such a monster.

Good stuff as always bud, especially considering your limited time. Keep it up!

She is called a bloodweaver night witch from Warmachine. I haven't looked at that line of models in a long time but when I saw her at the store, I thought perfect for my barbarian in our quest game we're about to start. Also wanted her to be kinda majestic, noble, strong and the dragons head just really made sense. Just as excited about her as my vamp on her ride but easier and faster to paint.

Been away for a bit. Working on Corsairs. I have a squad of 7 cloud dancers ready. Took a little work but was able to make transfers for my units.

very nice Dread, light colours on custom decals/transfers is tricky to get right.

Just have some touch ups on them and finish the bases. Still not 100% on the transfers. I did some others first just in white but didn't like them. The bikes I really want a stealth look and the symbol to stand out to show the dragons attack, like striking fear into the enemy.

Looking good from here. I love the colour palette you chose. The transfers look pretty good from here. I especially like how they look on the completed bases. I remember Cav commenting on how some people paint their clear flying bases and it really works here. Keep up the great work!

It's been awhile since I've been able to sit and build anything. I've been needing one more shadow seer for my Harliquins and having two of the static poses already, I started this one. Let the glue dry and a little putty work I will be able to field Cegoach's revenge.

That's beautiful work Dread.  I like the spell casting pose in particular.

Now a few touch ups and ready for primer. I know shadowseers have a blank mask but this one just screamed it to me.

Looking killer buddy! Love the flame base... with your experience doing the "fire fade" I'm sure you'll nail it.

Also thanks so much for your kind words on my p-log bro, I really appreciate it. I'll get back to you later today... got a cool hobby update want to include it with. Anyway keep it up, glad to see you back on here!  8)

Almost done. A little touch up and getting up the nerve to tattoo her, so tiny I'm scared.

Spectacular hair colour and the glowing blue eyes look very imposing.  She's looking really good so far.

Looking really good bro. Very eerie, love the color of the mask and the glowing eyes are a perfect touch! Wouldn't have thought of that myself. Really think this is a great job bud. Keep it up!

Phenomenal work Dread. The chequer pattern on the loin cloth is brilliantly executed and must have been a complete bugger to paint because of the folds. I like the way you have painted the leggings and hair as well. Everything about this model screams Harlequin.
What model have you used for this?

Thanks guys. The body is a dark elf sorceress, legs from dark eldar wych, the end of staff is a star boaloa end.

Fantastic work Dread. The posing of the mini is fantastic and the end result is just so dynamic as a result. I'm glad that you found such a good solution to the problem of static builds, it can do so much to bring an army to life. Loving the eyes as well!

Great stuff.
