On Display: Dark Vengeance Company Master & Cubes

A picture is worth a thousand words right?

 He came out well, but I certainly think I could have taken a bit more time with him. I was just riding on the excitement of how quickly and well the Librarian came out. Patience is not my strong suit.
Ironically, these require patience too and they turned out great! I added a few more display cubes to my collection. The ones at the ends are the 2"x2" versions and they are perfect for 40mm bases. The one on the left is a custom mix of walnut and white oak stain, then a thinned light oak stain to give it some tonal variation and then spar varnish. The one on the right is stained with coffee and then sealed with spar varnish.
Finally here is a shot of the 1", 1.5" and 2" for a size comparison. I'll be using the 1" (which came in a bag of 13 for about $6 CAD at Michael's) as a display cube for that Freebooter mini I am painting. Here is a sneak peek at that project...
Yes, that is pink leopard print felt on the bottom of her display cube. I had some left over from my Paint the City Pink charity auction minis that I did last year. Waste not, want not! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it -_-

Next post: I begin my journey into painting non-40k minis to push my skills and learn new things, with a WIP of the lady on the mini holder in the last picture there. What things? Wet blending and the use of a wet palette for one.  Fear not! The DV box will continue after this mini and it will be the Night Lords turn under the brush. Don't forget to check out the blog roll. I've added some new blogs since last time - shocking, I know. There are now something like 86 blogs on there :p  Thanks for stopping by. Questions, comments and critiques are always welcome and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain!
