About the Project

For a year now I've been thinking about which project I would like to start and show here on OTT. 90% of my hobby is painting miniatures. I spent many years painting and collecting GW miniatures. Unfortunately, I never played with them, because no of my friends has the same hobby. When Warhammer Fantasy died, I lost interest in the products from GW. So I came across the Kickstarter scene for miniatures and board games and bought a few games to get cheap and beautiful miniatures. When Blacklist Miniatures launched the second Kickstarter for the Fantasy Miniature Series, the idea was born. Since a set of rules for the miniatures is to be published now, this is a good time to play a game too. The project will run for several years and also include the other Kickstarter of the Fantasy Series by Blacklist Miniatures. Every week there will be some kind of challenge. The goal is given at the beginning of the week. I bet with my best friend every week if I will reach the goal of the week. If yes there is a point for me, if no a point for my friend. All miniatures get new bases. Some miniatures will be given a base design for a game in a frozen city.

The mummies are not the most difficult figure to paint in this box. A very simple color scheme was chosen here.

Screaming Skull for the basic colour and than washed with Stronge Tone and grren tone from Army painter. Then dry bruished with Screaming Skull and a little bit of Dead White.

Two other mummies has the basic colour Hemp Rope with Dark Tone wash, dry bruished with Hemp Rope and Screaming Skull mix.

The parts were the mummies have no scraps of cloth, I use Undead flesh  with Dark Tone.

The Dragon Warrior is a very nice miniature. I used Mayhem Red and than an Mix of Meyhem Red and Trollslayer Orange and Dark Tone Wash for the skin.

Screaming Skull and Dead White with Stronge Tone Wash for the horns. Leadbelcher and Heavy Metal for the armour. Merm Green for the shield.

It is 21.30 on a Sunday evening. I finished all six miniatures for this week.

I decided this week to give all of the constracts a slightly 
different colour scheme. The miniatures primed with matt surface
primer from green stuff world.For four of the constracts, 
Leadbelcher was used as the base color and then a dark tone wash 
over it. Then I use Riff Green, Dark Prussian Blue, Cooper and 
Mayhem Red.For the last miniature I started with haselnut copper 
and a stronge tone wash. Then a give the constract a dry brush 
treatment with glorious gold and than I use green stuff world 
dust liquid pigments - light green dust two times to give the 
mini a old rusty style.
The bases- two bases are for miniatures used in frost grave. Ice 
and snow and stone side way with ground, grass and snow.
The three other bases with ground, wood and side way.

The dwarf wizard 

Colours: Purple Hex, Dead White, Witch Purple, Dark Prussian Blue, Leather Brown, Beasty Brown, Kobold Skin and Castle Grey.

I give the wizard a fire ball made out of green stuff to give the pose more power.

Saturday evening - I prepared some bases while watching TV. 
Products from Green Stuff World were used for this. I prefer 
bases with a lip to give the miniatures a nicer look and a clear 
finish between the edge and the base design.Some bases made of 
green stuff  are cut to size and partially covered with  bird sand /
forest ground (hobby material) and small stones.
