Sid's Saturday Shenanigans #3 - 09/24/2011

Good Day to all you Scrum Bums! This is another edition of the Shenanigans, and I have a special treat for you today. I spent most of last night and a little part of this morning to finish the Troll Sluggers for today's S^3! Before I go into that I would like to give an update on the other projects I have been working on.

I have begun work in the Drakhun and the Scythean, and not much as of yet, due to finishing the sluggers. They will however be featured in future editions. I will continue working on them today. I have the schemes ready to go, and I will announce them next week as I continue to work on these fine models.

I have also been working on my Trollblood Warpack for the Journeyman League that is going on at our store here in Logan. I have been using the same scheme for the beasts as I did with the mauler. I may need to tweek the scheme a little due to smooth surfaces and fewer detail than the mauler, but it will look just as great. Since Madrak is an albino troll, I have given some serious thought into what an albino troll would look like with the skin scheme I have chosen. The scheme that has been sticking out in my mind was a yellow base skin with bone-ish highlights to give it that albino look. I haven't tested this yet, but I think it will look awesome!

Without further delay, I give to you the final product of the Trollblood Sluggers!

Final Product: Sluggers

The hardest, and most frustrating part of this final stage was the tartan pattern. I had a hard time keeping lines uniform to the flow of the cloth, and also the lines thin enough so that it didn't overpower to whole base color of it, but it still turned out great, and they will fit very well in with Grissel's forces.

I followed the same steps for the rest of the unit as I did with the prototype model, with the exception of the skin. I tried something different, and it turned out just as well as the prototype. I could not be more proud of these Sluggers. They turned out really well, and I hope that TheGreatBlah will continue to use them on the battlefield. Seeing painted models that I have done in game gives me a sense of accomplishment.

Enjoy these pics as much I have had painting the models. Thanks again Dallas for allowing me to paint more trolls. It has given me a lot of inspiration for my own trolls and how I want to paint them.

I would like to thank you all for reading the S^3 posts, and for all your support of the Scrum. I enjoy your comments on my painting, and I endeavor to improve on my skills always, so that I may provide the best service possible.

If you want to have some of your models done, and want them to destroy your enemies and look good doing it. Check out Sid's Painting Service page and shoot Dallas an email! We'll get you a good quote on your models and get them looking good!

Next week we will be going out of the Trolls faction and into other Warmahordes factions, just to keep things fresh. I will bring you the first stage of the Drakhun scheme, and update you on how my Journeyman League painting is going. I may or may not provide picks of my warpack. I would like to have them done before I post pictures.

Thanks again! For Kith and Kriel!
