So I'm still around and lurking, though I haven't painted any VB for a while. I have been painting though, this time knights.

The wolf knights of Tyris Gate.

Multibased like the halflings to make it look like a single base but it's actually a bunch of standard size bases for 9th age. These guys are for Kings of War and 9th.

Those are gorgeous, not just the painting but the whole composition on the base :) not going to be reproducing that painting style, but I'd love to do flowers like those... are they home made or can I buy them somewhere?

Thanks @Shadespyre , much appreciated. The flowers are hand made, they're easy to do though. Each flower is made from the bristle from a paint brush (the large wall painting kind). Paint it green, dip the tip in white glue and then into fine sand. Once dry, paint the sand purple, then highlight light purple or white and it's done. I make all my own grass tufts as well using a static grass applicator I made myself.

Aha, I thought it might be something like that for the flowers. I made bull rushes once like that, only I used wire instead of bristles. They look fantastic in those bold colours, a bit like bluebells. Thanks for the tip :)

I thought NMM looks bad in motion, but it's actually still cool! Your work is awesome beyond awesomeness, all the more pity that those are not undead ;) How long does it take to paint an unit to such a standard?

It's a tough burden, deciding which I'm more impressed with: your NMM technique, or your evocative and beautiful basing... good problem to have!

So I'm still lurking around, though I haven't been posting much largely because I've been doing non VC work I'm afraid. But I still like to share a bit so here is my latest complete work, The Alcatani Fellowship
