GrimDork paints


Recommended Posts

So, I've been lurking for far too long on this site, thought it was about time I started being a bit more active.

In the past have mostly painted 40k stuff, but the last few years my interest in AoS has grown. In the last few months I have been slowly picking up some Idoneth Deepkin, so they will be shown here sometime soon. I've gamed a little over the years, but my main interest has always been the painting side of the hobby.

For now, I thought I'd start a thread to show some extra pics of my entry for the TGA painting comp. 




Thank you TGA for running this comp!  Generally I'm a very slow painter, but I turned this model round in quick time thanks to having a deadline. I'm eagerly waiting for this months theme to go up, to see if have any models that will be suitable.

Thanks for looking

So, finished a test mini for my deepkin.



Im pretty happy with how it turned out. I might tweak the colour on the leather boots on the next one but I’m happy with the highlight placement and texture.

For deepkin I have a start collecting box, 10 reavers, king, allopex and eidolon (I’m a bit daunted by painting him).

Been picking bits up cheap on eBay over the last year. I’ve not opened some of them yet, trying to keep focused and not be a hobby butterfly. 

Thanks for looking, C&C very welcome!

Very clean and smooth paintjobs👏🏻. The base might deserve some more attention. 

Thanks man. Yeah, I’ve not really given it much though yet, just thrown some texture on and a light drybrush. I tried a few splodges of green wash to mix it up a bit. Will probably put on some tufts after I’ve varnished.

Open to any suggestions!

Love the (mostly) cold palette! How’d you do the blue metal, shade or glaze?

Thanks! It’s quite simple. All over a white primer.

Step 1, stormhost silver on all armour plates (might need 2 thin coats)
Step 2, Approx 1:1 coat of Talassar blue(contrast paint): contrast medium
Step 3, 1:1 nuln oil: Lahmian medium painted directly very sparingly into the deeper recesses

Step 4, Edge highlight of stormhost silver on edges and top of armour ridges.
