@Borgnine Absolutely stunning mate! Despite having taken that long, it's been worth it - you've made a masterpiece.
You've really pulled off the free hand on the cloak and all of your other conversions that you've done have came out nicely. (Have you painted his cape as flayed flesh? It looks wicked).
I like what you've done with the idols that represent the lores of magic too, they add some nice spot colours amongst the pallette you've gone for and they look pretty damn realistic. Lovely ethereal colour too (what are the bright colours you've used here? I'd love to play around with those with my inverted colour idea).
Wow, outdid yourself on this one, what a centerpeice. So much detail. The cloak looks great and so does the crown, you recreated him into your own character. If architecture fails you can always go into the lucrative business of modelling miniatures. I like the look on the basing aswell, I guess I could go on telling you how I love every peice of it but I'll stop here. Awsome job.
@Adam_Barrow Thanks once again I also can't really believe he's done. It's like finishing a semester project
@Farmer7574 It took really a sick amount of work, so it's good that it looks good Yes, the bottom of the cape is done as flayed flesh with some additional faces on it - I did a photo of it all, but it didn't fit into already crowded composition. Shown below. The idols - glad you like them, I have somewhat mixed feeling as it introduces completely new colors into the composition and I usually like monochrome minis Still, I had that idea and wanted to go with it and it was a cool training. As for the light color on the etheral parts - well, it's the most basic enchanted blue, the most basic goblin green together with white - I mixed those three colors in various proportions to get the color on the ghosts. Sometimes I also used a bit of biel tan green to smooth it out. I don't have a particular color for it, sorry
@Leithel Big thanks! So you're saying I need to make even better photos? Seeing as I don't have all of my army here in Germany I won't be doing any gaming here, so he will stand proudly on a shelf. Even if that wasn't the case, I become really disinterested in gaming after AoS and I like the modeling part even better. I just like collecting this stuff and spend time on it.
@ObliviJohn Thanks for all those good words I intend to go even further in this directon, creating my own characters, stories and minis Good that architecture is going quite well, I'd like to keep it as a hobby
The leather parts are awesome man, so disturbing, somehow it reminds me of Silent Hill videogame. The whole model is obviously awesome too I am also a huge fan of Dark Souls so this model has reached a level of epicness I seldom see. I would love to see your take on Zombie Giant
@Sessioni Thanks! I'm very glad you liked it and reminded you of all those things. Giant itself will go to the Orcs, but there will be some giant creatures being used as mounts for Mortis Engines - we'll see then how it'll turn out.
Last weekends were really packed with real life activities, so I haven't got much time to get much stuff going.... Some things got done, though That conversion of a Nurgle Lord I talked about in the 'working on' thread is complete, I'll try to post it on weekend. Other than that, some big orders finally came! I'll do probably a review about a big monster I got from a largely unknown company from Malta And I finally have a whole set of Gamezone Mournful Knights - these are beyond cool - and many other things. These will have to wait, there is a chariot to paint for the competition
Ok, a bit of progress to show at last - a converted Nurgle Lord, being used as the author of my stitched Crypt Horrors. At first I only intended to give him some knives and a bag, but while doing it I came up with an idea of giving him cut-off hands as his definitive feature. Also fits for my storytelling for this character And is also the explanation why so many of my zombie ogres have weapons instead of hands
In the meantime the work on the corpse cart is slowly coming forward. I don't like it when there are so many different elements to paint, I get confused trying to devise a good sequence of painting them
@Borgnine First of all, that model is one of the coolest GW has to offer. And you just made it cooler, the cut off hands are so freaky. Some times less is more, but in this case the amount of hands makes this character fit in your army better (I'm referring to your take on Nagash, and the large amount of bones in it). I read the fluff of your Horrors, great stuff! Soooo disturbing, and I like it.
@Sessioni Big thanks! I'm glad you like it and that you actually read the story It was inspired by witches from Witcher and Bloodborne and their fondness of collecting human parts, ears around the neck and eyes respectively:
In these cases more is more And hands have also a lot of symbolic meaning to them as these and I have a lot of them in my bitz box, so this is a very good choice in my opinion.
@der vued haha! provided that he'll be willing to hand them over first
@Mad 'At thanks! Kudos for noticing that before I painted it - even I forgotten about it when posting these photos. It's the mark I made for Baba Yaga - I intend to incorporate her or someone like her into my story later
