Purple nymph

This is my first miniature in 2015. A very small experiment with purple skintone on a small nymph from Hasslefree Miniatures.

This little beauty was on my pile of lead for about 6 years and I didn’t have how to use her. But as soon as I got into possesion of this rock with cristals in it I kwen that she would suit there, as if she was in her own cristal cave.

My goal was to paint purple skin and try to blend the layers as smoothly as I can. I think that there is still potential for me to improve when it comes to smoothness. I didn’t use any midtones, probably now it’s too late for them, but maybe you’ve got some ideas what colors should I use?

Vampire Counts characters

And so the undead army raises! I have finished painting two Vampire Counts characters – Krell and a extra Necromancer. There is never enough of those 😉

You can see more from my von Carstein’s Vampire Counts here. Currently I have painted about 3000 points, most of them are characters so I will have to finish some units soon to make the army playable.

Krell is of course from Games Workshop and the girl is from Anima Tactics – a very nice and fast miniature to paint. And since there is an invasion of dragons here at Chest of Colors, I had to start  paint one on my own. It a wyvern I know, but still it is a dragon like creature 🙂


I hope I can finish this biggy soon!

Sea.man’s blog – The beginning

Welcome to my first blog-type post here at Chest of Colors! I will try to show you my progress in becoming a better painter. I am a big fan of skirmish games like Hell Dorado, Mordheim or Necromunda. My favourite miniatures come from Confrontation. Ok, lets see what’s happening at my workbench…

Recently I have been playing a lot of Necromunda and here is my Escher band, whose name is Spice Girls.

More pictures from the beginning of painting the warband you can see at forum here. The girls are almost ready so at my desk is this guy for my raising Vampire Counts army. The new Krell from Games Workshop. I was that lucky  that I didn’t have to fill any gaps, so it really was a finecast 🙂 More skeletons and vampires you can find here.


And a little teaser what I got myself and hopefully will present to you see.

New miniatures

Enough talking, time for some painting 😉 see you next time!
