A first for me. or front end madness!

So recently I was asked to make a painting tutorial.
 This was quite the challenge I have not made one before and wasn't sure how it would tour not.
The request came from Celsork, he has a vlog on youtube
and a blog as well. (look through the blogs I follow.)

 The painting portion took an evening but the editing....well that took 2 days! Zounds!
 I wanted it to be a single movie but in the end I went with 4 parts. 

Here is a link to the first part and the rest will be in order so you wont have any issues finding them. These will be uploaded over the next few days. all the editing is done, just need to post them.

Coming Soon!

I have been working on the image that will be the "face" of unclean Studios

I drew this one over lunch one day last month. My coworkers agree I make the same face ...

I spent some time thinking about our future logo.
I like the big teeth and some eyes.
I know its very space orky... But,
 I think the final picture will not cause any "I.P." problems. at least that is my goal.

 And after a while working on the Templars project,
 I found I still had a lot of white paint in my air brush
 and then this came to be!

I had no idea just how badly proportioned the teeth were at the time! or should I say Disproportionate!

This came together very easily. I really like my this painting.  It's still not the final face for the studio but
 Surly a step in the right direction!

Jobz a good'n!

As promised! Dred Pic's! This guy has taken about 2 weeks to get to where he is now.
I have spent as evening on each part from arms to legs. I am at a happy stopping point for now.
I am getting a showcase in July and This will be the first model to enter my "hall of fame".
I have learned a lot from this model and will be using all of it again. I think their are some ork boys around that need more time put into them. And os let me leave you with some pic's to enjoy!

Feel free to comment. I Hope this has met your expectations I think it has met mine....for now!

Still on dat Waaaaugh!

Oh yes we are! Update. So the dred is still in the works with the base forthcoming and a few spots in need of paint(on the dred) In the time being have a look at some amazing blood Angels!
Shaper Jhae isn't a grizzled 40K veteran but dose play a mean game when he finds the time.
His painting has really hit a new level with these marines! So give him some love and have a look.

Good Stills and a cool little movie will showcase the dastardly dred when it's all done!
So enjoy all the crazy until then

Ork Update !

And a big thank you to all my viewers you there. I know my "content" is slow to arrive but I hope it is worth coming back to see.
So lets kick things off with some W.I.P. action!
I have had this Dred for months now and have put a few days of work into it.
It's really coming out nicely!

Here's a little walk back into the mostly past! Ork mobz I painted over the years.
I admit I am temped to put more time into them. But for starters I might just add some new lads to the mix. Still have to find the right Bits..

I really like my ork HQ's!
These guys have know what's really going on.

So whats next?
Black Templars and more orks. And with a little luck some terrain.

The universe unclog!

I have not been a competive ork player for a while now. which isnt to say I have not been winning some gmes but nearly 3 months ago I decided to drop off from gaming for a while. early this month I got the time to play again and won 2 games (every one loves to win!) but I got thinking about my army lists and with that I am thinking about useing more shoota boyz.regardless of how I had been building my army my boyz alwayse seem to be what wins the games sure the outher stuff is good too. I had for a long time been running slugga boyz but my last few games got me thinking about shoota buyz.
I am also thinking about IMPArmout?8? as a new way to play as well.
I don't like gretchen much as a troop choice either but I do like the way the new kit looks so I may add a large mob.
over all the only think I seem to be lacking is waggonz I have some kits but just cant get in to thim. the model isn't what I was hoping for ..too small.

So all ranting aside I guess I'm going to work on some lists.

Ok guard update.

new plan coming soon And DKoK pics.

Short and sweet.

No pic's this weekend, Spent all weekend in the "real" world. but all is well, or as well as my crazy lets me be.. And I'm thinking orkz! so I have been rummaging through my bitz box. What about ard boyz? ..but Shoota Ard boyz? could be good.

But the guard did get a little time on Saturday. the tracks have been painted black. I am toying with a black line look for the armour but I am not going to paint the bolts all over the tanks. That would be unrealistic. I am going to add the Basilisks to the "euro" troop I decided this this morning. the reasoning being Apocalypse.

And I am thinking about terrain. A dark heavy ash waste, with snow and mud. should look like a place no one would want to fight over... to crappy to clam. This one will be planed out.

Sorry for not giving up any pics.. you lot are all way too spoiled as it is..

As you can see I have been painting!

Still have loads to do!

Sharpen those teeth!

So first game in nearly 2 months! All I can say is WAAAAAUGH! ORKZ!
Nuff said. na really it was a good fun game vs the grey knigits and only 1000 points to boot.
something like 93 on 14.. not overly fair but they were less scary that I had been led to the inter net.. HA.
The dredknight seems scary until its killed by ork boyz. So ya it could own some troop types and it isn't to be taken lightly but everything sooner or later gets draged down.

from the sound of it my opponent has not played in quite a while. So good for me a stress free game and as it turns out a stress free gamer as well. I will enjoy playing this one again ..don't know his name but the silly one up'smenship was enjoyable and the dice were not kind to me (which is why I ran so many guys!) but even when he lost he was a good sport (which he said he would be.)
So a good evening. Sadly I was regretting not having my wolves with me. bad me.
But looks like I am back to rolling dice.
maybe the orkz should get another game in tomorrow? .. well see.

yet another Space Wolves update.

loads done in this last 2 weeks sorry if I am behind a little from my posting on Sundays declaration.
But things that have not been done are moving along very quickly! Some of you may know I like land speeders and fewer still know that I have 9 of them that I keep saying I will paint and "finish" ..and have yet to do....
Until now!
Thats right! 6 painted so far and thats not all!

I also have 6 rhino painted!
large flat spots are not really an easy thing to paint I use a light blue over a dark blue/black so the contrast on large areas can be a bit much. In fact the light blue seems silly or to make the vehicles seem less threatening. which just wont do! So after many months they are nearly done as well!

Ah but theirs more!
My land raiders which are relics from 2 other armies over several years also have paint!

and lastly the ever dreaded Storm Raven!
The youngest in my collection is also in par with the others!

Not much left for this army. That is as far as collecting goes! Still have several painting decisions to make and execute.

Not too much of an up date.

Hello again. I had a grate weekend! 3 days off of which I think I spent around 20 hours painting ..maybe more! Just how is this not much of an update? well Not many pic's were taken I tried to shoot a you tube clip.. fail? not sure.loads of footage to fix still for a wannabe batt rep. and then their is the painting. I worked on my armour! my rhinos , land raiders and storm raven. Still have to get those speeders done. what has it been now ...a year?.. maybe so.

My problem has been with solid color on my armour. it looks very ..wrong. my troops are dark but with a light over brushing and a wash to darken them down again. on the vehicles the look too light and ..well silly. this new look is following Mr. Darthburn's way of painting. I wont clam any inside knowledge or anything but I have always liked his layering..very dawn of war looking. very cool.
so as a noob this is my attempt to apply his ways. I am worried he may get upset when he sees them.. but I hope he is flattered at my attempt.
Pic's soon. Oh ya the big table project is done!

More painting incoming soon. Templars an I.G. update very soon..ish and maybe some free hand.

Thanks for putting up with another dose of crazy.

weekend roundup!

Heres some of the work I have put in this weekend!

I have had this one for over a year and had wanted to paint him before now. However, he was porly primed .. all bumpy from the humidity and more than a year later was striped and base coated!

More work to do ...
I am planning to pose on Sundays now. As a week in review.

So its sunday night...

And having had a nice weekend with an outing or two just been nice to relax.
my sabbatical from gaming is nearly over. soon my wolves will once again arise to lay waste to the armies of the 40 first millinium ! I have ordered some more bitz.. in the form of box sets.. which will be looted in short order when they arrive! I am excited! the grey knights are out very soon but I am just not feeling it.. I have never liked the Idea of them but I am hopeful that they are a good and maybe balanced codex as I am sure I will be facing the new hotness sooner or later..
But enough doom. I will be wrapping up a few projects and seeing off the opening of my new blog dedicated to terrain and of course making piles of gold... not.. But maybe it will support my unstable gaming needs! and be an enjoyable little business.

Now onward to the cookies!

well just one more "bad pic" to show off this evening ..

I hope you have enjoyed all of the madness this weekend!

up- date- a- thon!

Well here we are! I have so much iron in the fires and not enough time to work on it!
But like everyone with a fulltime job.. don't we all..
So the mighty uberwolve is very pleased to bring you more pic's of my wolves.

and here are a few more!

So all I have left right now would be some Thunder Wolves!

As you can see they are coming along nicely!

I am looking forward to showing off more but I think this enough for now.. the new digycan is hard to use but works well when you get it right! More soon!
