Sounds like this is going to bring us some good vintage painted CD, so, great start and good luck!

How does one win a round?  just by finishing first?

Well theoretically one of us chooses a chaos dwarf to paint, and we try to beat each other to the finish. But since clam decided to make trip over the weekend i raced solo this round. Up to clam to choose the next one to be painted.


RE: Clam (0) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-11-2018 03:51 AM

I'm quite sure Clam will post progress pics in this thread also, but just for those interested in our little fitty:

Half done jobs, mate, half done jobs - cause where's their shields and those things for having them standing up, what's they called? Ahh, yes 'bases' :-P

But darn they look great Happy


RE: Clam (0) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-15-2018 02:18 PM

Better hurry, almost 2-0!




RE: Clam (0) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-15-2018 03:45 PM

Well, if I wasn't to do basing and add a shield I would have it up by now, but I am actually finishing them before claim the score Big Grin Big Grin

But just to prove it a WIP. So this one is mine Wink




RE: Clam (0) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Uther the unhinged - 04-15-2018 04:21 PM

Wow, speed vs completeness tricky, tricky. Lets face it they are both gorgeous and waaaay out of my league.
But all credit to Clam for era appropriate shields and Sjoerdo for scary speed. Can’t wait for the next update


RE: Clam (0) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-15-2018 04:43 PM

Yes mate, you deserve this one! 1-1 it is, ill update the title tomorrow! They look great Happy love the green red combo you chose!
I will need a bit more time, yellow is a bugger to paint...


RE: Clam (0) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Forgefire - 04-15-2018 05:44 PM

Beatiful miniatures and paintjob!


RE: Clam (0) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Cloister - 04-15-2018 11:42 PM

Beautiful stuff from both of you. I can't wait to see them all done.


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Carcearion - 04-16-2018 03:50 AM

Wow amazing stuff guys! The differences in your styles really show off the model in different ways.

I'm always a bigger fan of darker colors and deeper shadows myself - but man the classic colors and highlights are more then holding their own!


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-16-2018 07:01 AM

For me it's quite a departure from my normal painting style. Normally I'm more a edge highlighter while in the 80's the 'Eavymetal team mostly did surface highlighting, basically blending highlights into raised areas, very time consuming Respect to the Mask!

I hope to have my entry done by Thursday, so Clam and I will have the coming weekend for the next subject...


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Will Liam - 04-16-2018 07:06 AM

love the paint job on your Chaos Dwarfs - Do you use a medium colour base coat then a lighter colour for the highlights and finish off with a ink wash just in the recesses and low spots? or would i need to do it a different way to get a cool result like your paint job cheers

I basecoat with a watered down standard white (to not clog any of the small details). Then I choose a base colour and paint it straight on. I then prepare 2 washes with same colour (just add water), one darker (add brown or black depending on need) and one lighter (add yellow or white depending on need).

Then I was it with the darker colour and while still wet blend in the base colour and the lighter highlight ( I use tow brushes for this). In this process I always add water to my paints (not too much), to keep the blending fluid.


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Will Liam - 04-16-2018 11:16 AM

Thanks for the info- I think your painting method works extremely well and I’m going to have to give it a try at some stage the blending is very easy to look at compared to other stiles of painting - awesome

Yes yes, you have earned bragging rights this time around Wink

Well I have added the fourth layer of yellow (damn that colour), hope to have it finished by Friday (business dinners on Tuesday and Wednesday)...



RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Admiral - 04-17-2018 05:49 AM

This race is as lovely as it gets. Great and characterful miniatures shown off in two distinctly different painting styles as veteran hobbyists compete with each other to get finished first? Splendid idea!

Nice blending and colour display, Sjoerdo. Exquisite colours and play of light and darkness in the paintjob, Clam. Takes Hat off

These classic Chaos Dwarfs have stood the test of time very well indeed, and they are still most inspiring in their various wacky designs.


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-20-2018 09:39 AM

Im done (i hate yellow Sick), ,Clam, bail and chain guy next!


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-20-2018 10:11 AM

Im done Clam, lets get started on ball and chain guy!


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-20-2018 11:39 AM

I see no pictures.... how can you be done, when I don't see pictures... ?

Pics or it didn't happen, is the phrase I think Happy


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-20-2018 12:40 PM

... and I couldn't leave you hanging out to dry like that, so I've begun some yellow as well ... Happy




RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-20-2018 02:12 PM

I cant work blogger nor imgur on an ipad or a phone, but ill email you a pic. Great work on underbite. Pffff i did at least seven different shades and highlights and it still just looks like plain yellow...


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-21-2018 02:37 AM

Am I the only one that can hear a violin playing ....?

Nah, just kidding I've seen enough - but get it uploaded and shared, Sjoerdo.

And Chain ball is now based (you know, the round little disc under hes feet, so he stands up...?) and primed.

Needs some drying time - and hopefully I can start working on him tonight.

your call, mate, who's next?


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-22-2018 02:36 AM

And Clam just missed the deadline, was a close finish! luckily there is a 2 hour time difference between the UAE and Denmark which worked in my advantage this time Happy



Lovely blue mate, great job!


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (1) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-22-2018 03:30 AM

I'm so close, I'm almost finished but I had to call it in at 11 pm before finishing the base - but if i can get another good hour tonight, I'm done as well.

And then I'll call the next one .... guess what it will be Happy


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - Willmark - 04-22-2018 01:54 PM

You know I now have all of these chaos dwarfs now and they are primed... I may have to get in on this too!

Of course I can't paint anywhere near the level of these two masters.


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-22-2018 02:51 PM

Glad if this paintaton is encouraging others to painted their set. Get cracking, it's much fun Big Grin

And here's my belated take on "Cyrus":



- but also finished the MM90/5c that Sjoerdo kicked this countdown off with:



So I'm down on 19 Happy - and more on the blog of course: http://clamshellsandseadogs.blogspot.dk/2018/04/mm90-painting-countdown-21-20-it-has.html

And what's next, well let us paint Khorne - cause I call this one:




RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 04-22-2018 02:59 PM

Alrighty, good choice, ill dig my red paint!

Now dont take advantage of the fact that im travelling the coming 2 days!


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-22-2018 03:26 PM

I will probably not get round doing him till Thursday/Friday, so no worries Wink But I am also planning on doing the Assyrian guy while working on this one. Leaving me just a Mage behind, but will have to buy a new one before going there.... :-/


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - Willmark - 04-22-2018 08:46 PM

Is the idea (as I understand it) to finish a mini in a set time, but it doesn't matter which one as long as you finish one before the other person?

Also- it looks like going for the Marauder look and feel in terms of the paint schemes? If I do mine I don't think I can pull of the bright colors.

Lastly, one minis every two days from the sound of it?


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - Enjoysrandom - 04-23-2018 03:30 AM

They look great, nice and colourful with that old 80s/90s paint style! Love it! Complimented well with the bases and a great photos to boot!

No, in turn we choose a mini, and by choosing a mini it is directly the kick off for painting it as quickly as possible. First to finish wins that round. Then the next mini gets chosen etc etc

I will be offering 100 euros worth of warcolours paint (of his choice, delivered to you for FREE) to the winner!


RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - HPN - 04-24-2018 07:21 AM

Oh dear, cranking up the pressure are we mister Carsten Lamebeard Wink

Indeed I did bring back some goodies, 4 more dwarfs (actually 6, but I stupidly bought two I already had duplicates for), loads of shields and bases! And yesterday I went out to buy grass tufts and wood glue!




RE: Clam (1) vs. Sjoerdo (2) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 04-26-2018 05:13 AM

Epic reds, Sjoerdo. Love it. Glue, tufts, shields and bases .. wonder what they are for?

Lamebeard, is that the name you gave this one? Well, guess it's better than Khorne-dude Wink

But while waiting for Sjoerdo to call the next one ... here's my take on the Assyrian:



And just before you start asking, it's a transfer Wink

Starting to look like a proper little warband Happy

The score may say 2-2 at the moment but it's win win for the rest of us, so it's more like 7-7. Keep up the great work guys.

Love that group shot Clam, everyone painted with shields and bases. Hard to pick a favorite but I really like blondie on the right.

It's actually 8-7 in Sjoerdo' s favour because he has also painted the Mage, which I don't have a spare copy of, yet.

But yes, it all about getting them all painted up. So who cares about score? Big Grin
But if Sjoerdo really needs proof that I'm faster than him.... well ... I'll let him loose Big Grin Big Grin

You're still talking about that time when I promised you 4 sculpts and only delivered 3?

I must say this one cast is the only one that is so crap, but even looking at the marauder catalogue painted one, you can see how soft the details are on this one. We have to apply all our painting skills to emphasizing the details on this one...

In my case someone tried to cut eye slits into his helmet using a blunt spoon (even more blunt then a normal spoon!), by the looks of it, but got him sorted and ready for base coat.

And I need to step up my photography skills, your pictures look great!

Where's the yellow sponge now? Tongue I kind of miss that one Wink

Nah, just kidding - looks real fine. But it's hard with a white background, ain't it? You might like to try a blue-to.white one instead - or an off-white/grey one.

RE: Clam (3) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 05-13-2018 01:32 AM

RE: Clam (3) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 05-13-2018 04:09 AM

Really makes a difference.

I also had the camera out - and did these group shot:



Ohh, and what's that? Up there in the top left corner? The blue guy? Ain't that..?? Nooo, can't be! Wait, oh yes it is a finished MM90/3d Tongue Tongue Tongue

Nah, cant be... you said i didnt have to worry, you would only start on him after the weekend!? You wouldnt sneak a victory like that, right?

Ive seen close ups of this one, really great blue colour, and the red beard is great!


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 05-13-2018 02:47 PM

I said that...? Well if it's of any comfort, it one of those minis that paints themselves, so nothing I could do, really.

But I'm quit sure I said, just take the time you need for this one (so I can sit out in the sun drinking a cold beer as I'll be done I no time, because Friday was a national day off) Cheers!


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Ghrask Dragh - 05-14-2018 05:45 AM

So... much... awesomeness... in... one.... thread... keep it together dude...aaaaargh this is amazing!!!

I love all these brightly coloured old skool guys, really nice paint jobs both and such a cool idea to get them all done together like that

Great to see the Marauders still live Happy


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 05-14-2018 03:50 PM

Immortals they are, those MM90s. Will be here long after I'm gone, I'm sure.

And thank you for your kind words, GhraskD. Very motivating and I'm rather sure we can pull this off. Right, Sjoerdo? Oh that's right. We shouldn't disturb him, as he's still painting - hi, hi.

I shamelessly have to admit that he's extraordinary good. John really nailed the young apprentice feel I'd asked for. And I'm looking forward painting it, so no rush, please.

Oh, and did I tell I had the week off?

Probably finished by the weekend, lmao Hashut!


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Uther the unhinged - 10-17-2019 01:07 PM

My mistake, clearly not competitive.
Looking forward to your results


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 10-18-2019 03:19 AM

Are you ready for this ..... Big Grin







Nah, just kidding, of course Tongue But I've painted my "Hatchet Man" - or what I thought was "Hatchet Man" - full story why I've painted this one on blogger: https://clamshellsandseadogs.blogspot.com/2019/10/mm90-painting-countdown-10.html




RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 10-20-2019 12:18 PM

And here's Leonidas - the MM90/6d - as presented on the group shot on the Garage-blog:



And Sjoerdo is done too, but apparently he can't post pictures online, but as I've seen it let's call this a draw, shall we?

Score is actually 4-4 before this one, so you've missed a title update, Sjoerdo Wink


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 10-21-2019 02:28 AM

Yes yes you beat me by a few hours...

Well done mate Takes Hat off by the way, whats the score now!?

Here's ine, bottom left:




RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 10-21-2019 02:39 AM

Beautiful Happy

And you've equalised with you mini-Slambo and let's call this a draw, keeping the score on 4-4, but I'll pick the next one though. Just because you picked the latest one Happy

No update the title in post #1

Im counting 14 for me and 16 for you that leaves us with only 8 to choose from, choose wisely!

And since Im back in Holland I have the full set available to choose from again.


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 10-21-2019 07:47 AM

Nothing wrong with the maths here, and still I only got 7 to choose from? Now that's a riddle  for you to solve,
while waiting 😉


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Threadbare - 10-21-2019 10:09 PM

Great additions guys.

Really like the improvised crossbow Sjoerdo. Not sure why but a line from the movie Snatch comes to mind "Heavy is good. Heavy is reliable. If it doesn't work you can always hit them with it."


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (4) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 10-22-2019 03:17 AM

I've made it easy for you, Sjoerdo - brown and green. I'll struggle, cause I'm waiting for more Marauder shields ....  I call MM90/2D. That said, as you are painting yours as copies of the catalogue page, you'll have to do some research figuring out which of the big rounds this is, hi, hi.



And here's my unpainted piece:



Now, let us see yours Happy


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Admiral - 10-22-2019 04:31 AM

Great work, both of you! Wonderful to watch. I really like the varied paintjobs you give the miniatures. Happy

Also, reporting the missing notification error to our tech staff. It would be nice if one could depend on the gadget features!

Cheers


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 10-22-2019 07:23 AM

Don't rush, ohh! - and do go fix the thread title - only you can do an edit on post #1 The score is 4-4 Happy


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 10-22-2019 07:32 AM

My assumption is based on this reflection, let me know if you agree...

From this it could be anything really:



But it's definitely one of the two bigger ones, and it's not the bone-chaos-start one - so yes, must be the pirate.


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 10-25-2019 03:48 PM

I'm off to bed, but thought I'll leave this here:



Takes Hat off Takes Hat off Takes Hat off

And here in proper daylight - and a dry base (update 26-10-2019 01:30 pm):




RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - tjub - 10-26-2019 03:51 AM

Cool, I really love the colors on these old boys! Happy


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 10-28-2019 02:54 AM

So you beat me to the punch again? I think i finished last Friday around 11.30 PM...

RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 10-28-2019 03:45 AM

Looks fantastic Takes Hat off And did you paint the face, this time Tongue

I knew I had to work fast.  If I shall speed up, I shall shift primers. The tough primer I use needs 24 to cure. If I start to early it reactivate and gets tacky. I love the how smooth and how tough it is, though. Have some gw black and army painter ones, but not nearly as strong. So I really need at least 3 working days to finish'm.

Luckily this one doesn't have a face hidden under his helmet Happy

You use a primer that needs 24 hours to dry? What brand is it, and what are the magical properties of this primer that you are willing to wait 24 hours for it to dry?

Yours looks great also, love the blue!

Ill post our next challenge tonight!


RE: Clam (4) vs. Sjoerdo (3) MM90 Paintaton! - Abecedar - 10-28-2019 04:46 AM

What is the name of this tough primer?

Scully Sorcerer Till now, I've avoided looking at him. Probably my favourite of them all, but I'm scared painting him ... as all I see is Khorne .. Hashut!



Ohh, and the score is 5-4, in my favour, now go update that first post of yours, please Happy


RE: Clam (5) vs. Sjoerdo (4) MM90 Paintaton! - clam - 11-09-2019 03:39 PM

Done, cause I don't want to waste more time on this dude. It was as hard as I thought and feared Sad



So Sjoerdo, who's is yours coming along?


RE: Clam (5) vs. Sjoerdo (4) MM90 Paintaton! - Admiral - 11-09-2019 05:02 PM

He came out great, clam. The results are rather stellar!


RE: Clam (5) vs. Sjoerdo (4) MM90 Paintaton! - Sjoerdo - 11-25-2019 03:10 AM

Sorry guys, I havent been painting, but in my (weak) defence I have been sculpting:






RE: Clam (5) vs. Sjoerdo (4) MM90 Paintaton! - Abecedar - 11-25-2019 06:34 AM

Noice.

RE: Clam (5) vs. Sjoerdo (4) MM90 Paintaton! - Uther the unhinged - 11-25-2019 04:34 PM

Can avoiding great painting be forgiven for truly awesome sculpting? Alright, just this once mind you.


RE: Clam (5) vs. Sjoerdo (4) MM90 Paintaton! - Antenor - 11-26-2019 04:54 PM

Great sculpting, they both look amazing! Takes Hat off

The only Scully I know of is the chick from X files. Not sure she came with a fox. Might be a mole, though Wink

Exactly, Fox Mulder is the guy (David Duchovney) and Scully is the girl (Gillian Anderson)
