On Display: Night Goblin & NOCF BREAKING NEWS!!!

Just some display pics of the mini from the video tutorial. I think he turned out quite well for a mini painted in under an hour with basically only the Secret Weapon Washes. I particularly like the stone, wood, leather, ropes and skin...


 Is he going to win any awards? No, but an army of these guys on a table would look sweet - and they would be painted up in no time XD

***NOVA UPDATE***
Getting through the details on the scouts. Metal, black, gold and leather are more or less done.

SECRET WEAPON MINIATURES SUPPORTS

NOVA Open CHARITABLE FOUNDATION!
Justin “misterjustin” McCoy of secretweaponminiatures.com (SWM) supports the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) in more ways than we can list – but we’ll try!  He signed on as one of the premiere artists contributing his skills to the NOCF Macragge Project.  He provides $25 SWM gift certificates in the weekly drawings for raffle participants.  And it didn’t take him long to team up with Thomas Wynn and Dave Taylor (who spearheads the Project for NOCF) to turn an idea into reality by creating unique and amazing bases for The Battle of Macragge.


Six years ago, Thomas – inspired by the base on Marneus Calgar - designed and laser cut bases for Dave who was working on his own Ultramarine project.  Leap forward to the NOCF MacraggeProject currently under way and we find Justin creating and painting Marneus Calgar for the Ultramarine Army.  Similarly inspired, Justin spoke with Dave about designing bases exclusive to the NOCF Macragge Project and, as quickly as all that, OMEGA BASES!  They shipped to the Macragge Artists for both armies today.

But, wait, there’s more!  Justin is also shipping a set of broken columns to each artist so they can create ruins and further customize the Ultra bases.









And that’s not all!  Secret Weapon Miniatures’ Snow Bundle is being provided to each artist – and Dave is creating the step-by-step recipe to ensure all bases remain unique to Macragge.








He’s not done yet!  Justin announced that SWM has created a limited edition run of these bases, and 50% of every Omega Base sale will be donated to the NOVAOpen Charitable Foundation!

    1. Thanks, I really like charity initiatives. It's great to help out with more than just throwing money at the problem. A chance to make a change with my hobby skills is pretty special in my books.

  3. Absolutely incredible to think you can achieve that just with washes. Just goes to show how brilliant and versatile the range of products are that are out there, and how skilled you are in their use. Fantastic work.

  4. Nice work with the washes. The Scouts are plowing a head and looking mighty fine for a bunch that have lost their geneseed and about to be over run by critters!
    I know I read all about it! Im getting into the stories of 40K.

    1. Thanks! Careful man, that 40k background is really addictive. The ultras have had a rough time since the Horus heresy. Everyone seems to love to hate them :P

    2. Not fer nuthin,' but I kinda feel bad for the Ultras after reading Calth Burns.
      Poor Ultras got sly rapped by a snake in the grass there, man.

      Yeah that goblin came out real cool.
      :)

    3. Yeah, then there was the battle for Macragge and then of course Honsu tried to kill the five hundred worlds again in M41. Poor bastards :(

  5. The goblin looks good and for under 1 hour paintjob even great, scouts look great too, I would like to see the bearded guy in more photos, he looks more interesting than the clear shaven recruit ;)
    Are you planning on making more videos? The goblin painting vid was really good, if a bit long-ish ;)

    1. Thanks man! I'm just working on my Liebtser award post for next week ;) I wanted to keep it as close to real time as possible, but if i do anymore videos they will be much shorter. They are just so much work o_O and it's damn hard to stay in frame with my subject. Much respect to Les and buy painted and everyone who does these on the regular!
