Interview: madscuzzy (Creator of Orktimus Prime)

Orktimus Prime

Orktimus Prime!

It’s been a while since we’ve done any interviews. However, I happened across an amazing conversion recently and just had to interview it’s creator. Some of you may have already seen the Orktimus Prime, a conversion of the Ork Trukk model into a working Ork Optimus Prime Transformers model. This is the brilliant work of madscuzzy (aka Dom). If you haven’t seen it yet, well, it’s something you just have to see. I can’t really describe how great it is.

This is one of my favorite conversions that I’ve seen. It’s a great idea and madscuzzy did an amazing job with it! It turns out that he’s also done some other very fine work as well! I was very impressed with all of his conversions, and the great trench table that he built. Check out the interview below to learn all about Orktimus Prime and the man behind the machine.

Undead Lady of the Night

Another Front View

A Real Woman

It’s been a while since I’ve put up any photos of my projects (because it’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to do much work on any of them mainly). I just finished the painting on my first Malifaux miniature tonight, an undead lady of the night. I still need to decorate the base, but the painting itself is done.

Interview: cianty

Posted in Interviews on November 6th, 2009 by Svenn

We had a very good response to the first interview so it looks like we’ll be continuing the segment. This time we’re going with someone a little more focused on rules. cianty is one of the creators of the Border Town Burning supplement to Mordheim. He has had his hand in various other Mordheim projects as well. He is also a moderator on Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum, the Specialist Games Forum and the Mordheim Yahoo group. On top of all this, he does excellent work with miniatures and especially terrain. So, here we go with our second interview!

Interview: DeafNala (Alan Preuss)

Posted in Interviews on November 4th, 2009 by Svenn

UPDATE! DeafNala has decided to use the Tabletop Geeks galleries for hosting photos of his work. You can see tons of his stuff over at The Mercenary Minis of DeafNala… & Stuff.

Yesterday I promised you a new feature and today I deliver! Our new feature will be interviews with prominent community members and hobbyists displaying their works and letting you get to know them in the process. There were a couple of reasons behind this idea. The first was simply to highlight some great works and to get to know the people behind them. The other big reason was to give people ideas, inspirations, and maybe even some tips from people who are experienced hobbyists.

Daemonette Mutant WIP

Posted in Miniatures on August 6th, 2009 by Svenn
Daemonette

Daemonette

The Daemonette Mutant is coming along. I’ve got pictures of her in her current state, but she will most likely be changing a bit. I’m not sure if I like the claw arm or the hair. I have no idea what to do for the claw arm, mainly the part before the claw. It’s currently a reddish but it doesn’t look right. The hair looks fine how it is now, but I think I might want to change it to a bright, fiery red instead of the darker red.

Finished Mutant!

Group Photo!

Group Photo!

The Marauder Mutant is fully finished, based and coated with a Matte finish spray. I also based and finished my Magister and Possessed. I used Ben’s basing method for the bases to give a rough ruins look instead of doing cobblestone. You’ll also notice that the pictures look much better. I used Hyun’s guide to taking photos of your miniatures to learn how to take some better pictures, and I am now using Picasa to touch them up before posting. Oddly enough I switched to a lower quality camera for these pictures, as my usual camera was not available. Read more »

Nearly finished Marauder Mutant

Posted in Miniatures on July 31st, 2009 by Svenn

The Marauder Mutant is just about done. I actually thought I was finished and then realized I forgot to do his shield, oops! I touched up a few places, painted his beard and the rest of his helmet. I painted over the spikes with bleached bone, they drybrushed them with skull white. At the base of the spikes I added some Red Gore to make it look like the spikes pushed out through his skin, leaving him a bit bloodied. After all the base painting was pretty much done I washed over most of the model with Devlan Mud. I had heard a lot of good things about it but this was my first time using it. I have to say I was quite impressed!

I should be doing the shield and putting him on a base this weekend. I’ll also be starting work on the Daemonette Mutant as well. She’s a bit smaller and a little less detail heavy so I should be able to finish that much quicker. Anyway, enjoy the new pics!

Mutant Painting WIP Part 1

Posted in Miniatures on July 28th, 2009 by Svenn
Marauder Mutant

Marauder Mutant

I finally got a chance to start painting my mutants. The Marauder mutant is mostly finished, but still has some work to be done. Mainly, I need to do the spikes, color his beard, and put some washes on him, but he also will be getting a shield on his third arm which I have not painted yet.. I am fairly happy with how the green stuff bits turned out. This is my first attempt at painting a model in several years. For some reason I can’t seem to figure out drybrushing again, even though I’ve done it before. It just doesn’t look right. It’s hard to tell on this guy, but his pants have been drybrushed with codex gray over the base of black. His boots were also drybrushed some as well.

I decided to keep his main clothing colors black and blue to match the rest of the warband. I wanted to keep his skin tone to a human looking color instead of going another color since he’s got demon in him so that it’s easy to differentiate between the mutants and possessed. My two possessed models will be Red/Pinkish and Blue/Purplish while the two mutants will be mainly flesh colored.

Mutants Update

Posted in Miniatures on July 19th, 2009 by Svenn
My mutants

My mutants

I just wanted to post a quick update to show off the progress on the mutants. Yesterday I finished the modeling of both of the mutants so they are ready to paint! I made a few minor changes to both of them. The daemonette mutant now has a spear instead of the axe. I cut down the arm a little bit as well because it was just too long. The marauder mutant got spikes. I added 7 spikes to the shoulder area where the new arm was placed. I was considering adding something else but I couldn’t think of anything that was simple enough and would fit nicely on the existing model. The spikes and extra arm should hopefully be enough to make it stand out as a mutant after it’s painted. With any luck, I’ll be able to get them primed and painted this week. Read more »

Possessed and Mutants and Green Stuff

Posted in Miniatures on July 17th, 2009 by Svenn
Rawr!

Rawr!

After a long time spent working on terrain and neglecting my warband I decided I’d like to try and finish all of my models. I had 7 (near) completed models already, but was lacking heroes. I picked up some additional Brethren, Darksouls, and another Possessed model. I wanted my mutants to look very much human and fleshy, but with some noticeable mutations. I also wanted to try to do some conversions. I picked up some Daemonettes and some Marauders of Chaos to use as the bases for my mutants, and some green stuff. I’ve never really worked with green stuff before, so this was a fun experiment. Read more »
