Hello everyone.
My name is Matteo, I am 26 years, I am married and I have two beautiful daughters of 1 and 5 years.
I'm italian and unfortunately my english is very poor... so you correct mi if I'm in wrong.
I am an architect and despite the crisis I can go on in this country (Italy) in disarray...
I collect miniatures undead since I was 12.
I currently have almost 2000 miniatures from various manufacturers houses and more than 60000pti including Vampire Counts and Tomb Kings.
It 's very difficult to photograph all miniatures together, have never been able to deploy them all on one table!
They are also growing!
Unfortunately only a few miniatures are painted, and even fewer are well painted.
I collect miniatures and books from the first edition of warhammer and I possess very rare pieces!
Here is a terrible picture/collage of only 70% of my old army:

Bit by bit time I will post pieces that I have in this thread.:konrad:

Thanks!
Yes almost all buildings are homemade with polyurethane and gypsum or mold of "Hiristarts".
I think I will open individual threads that then will link here..

I would suggest you just do replies with updates or many of us just look that we have replied to this thread after the photos and more on. Just a thought.

Loving the models but out of curiosity what size base do you have the elephant on?

That amount of models... :|

I love your finished projects you posted here, it is nice that every unit is special is some way (LED, nightglow, heavy conversion):thumbsup:

Btw. could you share with us what kind of nightglow color did you use and if you applied some kind of varnish on it? :redface:

That is one epic army! I will be following closely. :)

(Also a good thing to refer to when the missus says I've got enough small dudes already.)

thanks to all!
The Elephant's base is a normal base for a chariot (regular for Mortis engine or a Warsphinx :perv:) and nightglow color come from China (I have bought it on Ebay last year... don't remember more...)

Hello to all people!
Today I propose a long photo excursus on my sphinxes up to the current WIP of the first that I'm painting:

It starts from modding, for a total of about a 30 net hours (spread in 6 months ...):

-Necrosphinx
dscn3045q.jpg


dscn3048x.jpg

dscn3053a.jpg


-Warsphinx
dscn3088j.jpg

dscn3092k.jpg


And then arrive to 4 completed sphinxes (very bad photos ...):
92767007.jpg

98807292.jpg

dscf1998w.jpg

dscf1999n.jpg


And now we enter the painting of the first Necrosfinge:

STEP 1
(Smurfing painting of the face)
83585521.jpg

44846521.jpg


STEP 2
(wings, bib and background color on the body)
dscf2556v.jpg

dscf2549i.jpg

dscf2560p.jpg


STEP 3
(sketched out first shadows on the body)
dscf2567m.jpg

dscf2564c.jpg

dscf2563m.jpg


STEP 4
(sketched the astronomical runes on the body, the idea is the necrosphinx can be used as a star-map from liches and that these celestial runes could flow and/or change on it depending on the astral combinations)
sphinx3.jpg

sphinx4.jpg


STEP 5
(refined the symbols on the body and given the base color gold on back, legs and tail, given also the first shadows over them)

Now painting is to 21ore ... I hope you will like it ;)

This really helped me to see the point of undercoating your stuff white. Really great work, I've bee stargazing these pics for the last hour already trying to absorb your technique. I really like this.

What paints did you use here?

Looks awesome, mate, I simply love that amount of models! As an enthusiastic collector myself, it's great to see large collections like these :)

The painting looks amazing, especially the runes, which I like very much. Can't wait to see more pics! :D

Great job! That last giga-unit filler looks like the Undead version of the USMC War Memorial. xD
