Thanks for that Winter.
Allonaire, you lucky grot! I bet your heart stopped when you opened that box .
Its the NMM on the sword that catches my eye, can't seem to stop looking at it. You, sir, deserve some Rep. Though, I think I've already given you some...

Into Kai-Itza's Vault - A WIP Thread
Sorry haven't done anything for ages. Been doing alterations on the house, we now have a brand new looking lounge and stuff.
Anyway I ordered Eltharion the other day and he arrived yesterday so I got down to stripping him and removing mold lines last night.
Here is the progress so far...
Hope you like it as always C&C are welcome, I am just stoked to be able to paint again.
I will get back to the stegadon eventually as well.
A new lounge, eh? Not a bad effort!
Will be interesting to see how Eltharion progresses; he's quite a nice mini. Is he going to be painted in your army scheme or as a stand-alone piece?
Probably a bit of both, still the same NMM (although there isn't much metal) but I think that I will do more freehand on his cloak and stuff and the dominant colour on him so far is white.
Just a quick update, have nearly finished Eltharion but am really battling with his sword it is very skinny and on a weird angle and difficult to get the blends to look right and have a decent amount of contrast. The rest of him looks alright though.
To stop me getting bored I said I would paint the dead terminator from space-hulk for a friend.
Here is what I have so far
I want the final product to look like it is being lit from the floor by 2 harsh flourescent lights, that are flickering and almost burned out. (Not sure how to get flickering across with paint on a miniature but so far it looks alright, real dark which I wanted, the gold will be a real challenge here though.
Another update on the dead terminator, I got frustrated with the gold nmm I was trying on the goblets and the metal on Eltharions sword, so I quit for a while but was re-inspired by the new Blood Angels especially the Sanguinator (which I bought on a whim) and the painting guide to doing him in NMM from the recent White Dwarf.
Here is my progress, I still haven't finished but comments and advice would be great, esp. about the goblet on the power fist.
really nice work on the red armour!
the goblet is a beauty but i think maybe the gems in it should be another colour... the red gems on it make it look a bit smudgy... yellow crystal or blue maybe just a thought.

I have changed the gems to green and they look better now, also painted the skulls and stuff. Still not sold on the goblet but I will keep working on it, post more pictures soon.
Here are the pictures, I have put up a front one and links to the sides etc
Another front view
I would really appreciate feedback on him, I am intending to enter him into a local painting competition, I know that he is a long way from done but your first impressions would be really great.
Looking at the photo's what I can see that really needs a lot of improvement (a long list but here goes)
The pelvis wings aren't finished
The cloth thing needs tidying up and smoother transitions into the shadows (mayde a different shadow colour?)
Goblets on the LHS need sharpening up
Highlights added to the black
Have a rethink about the external wiring (I have done a very poor job of the black and yellow)
General tidying up where I have rubbed off paint
Need to add battle damage (will do that last I guess)
Oh and the back of the chair
