Hi.

Some pics of the miniatures I painted lately:

The mortans were a total Desaster.
Miniatures painted, glossy finish and then: applied silk finish.
Then disaster striked: The room where I used the silk finish spray was too cold (left the window open overnight. Minus degrees. All minis covered in a greyish color).

Same Thing happend to the banebroods. But here I was able to recover a Little bit.

The Traglotytes I finished yesterday. No finish done yet.

As you can see I am not realy an Artist. But the miniatures are good enough for playing games. :-)


Some Detail photos:

As you can see I always use a certain Color as "base".
So the armies are easy to identify on a battlefield:

I will post more pics when I have finished the other faction starters.

Meh, that's bad luck with the silk finish. Confused

However, it's awesome that you already have half the starters painted, and that with a very respectable and recognizable paintjob! Great work! Smile

I hope this never happens to my miniatures. Sad

I'd say its still better painted than what you usually see on the table.

Even with the grey effect, the Mortans are still 100X better than unpainted miniatures. Looks like they just walked through a storm of ash (which fits for Mortans because they have many active volcanoes in their Heartlands).


I like the red for the Troglodytes. Although their armor is made from Iron (according to the background), there is no reason they cannot paint or laquer their armour like many Japanese and Chinese troops did. Troglodyte kingdoms are often involved in border disputes and all-out war, so it also makes sense in a battle to have colored armor so you know which are friends and enemies. (I read an estimate that maybe 30% of casualties during medieval battles were from friendly attacks)

Well, the accident with your silk finish spray is indeed bad luck Sad
But your Banebrood are looking pretty good.
It`s also nice to see another colour scheme for the Trogs; they are looking great Smile

I`m looking forward to your next works Smile

Thank you for your comments!

Here are som new pics.

1st the Halodynes:
Basically they are finished from my side. I could do some Detail work but I am not sure if I will do it. Would like to finish my other 2 army starter sets.

And: Yes, I know, that there are 2 wrong models in this starter set.
The reson is that I hadn't them when I started painting them (were missing in the Kickstarter at the beginning). Now I have them ans soon i will add the miniatures.

I would just paint the pteruges (armor straps around the waist) of the Halodynes cream or leather. It will really be worth it. then they are a fine tabletop standard.

Still so far I think the Trogs got your best work.

Hi Spy,

cool to see some more models.

I'm with David here. You should paint more than one color. It just doesn't look right, when the leather armor is painted in metallic colors. If you consider this point you'll have a lot of nicely painted miniatures.

Thank you for your comments.

You are both right.
I will paint the pteruges in a bronish tone and do some detail painting.

The problem I have with Godslayer miniatures in general are my lack of background knowledge (I am waiting for the german kickstarter background book ^^) and that I painted around 350 to 400 Orcs (far future) of the leading table top brand Company within the last 6 months.

So I have to get used again to paint just a handfull miniatures per month instead of sometimes 30-40 models per week ...
