I spent the weekend ploughing through the "last" thirtyish of my Brown Orcs - it was raining, so I got a lot done. I'm a bit bored of them now if I'm honest! I should have pretty much 4000 points under 3rd Ed rules once I count it all up. The next step will be to make and paint all the standards and to finish all the bases (which are just plain black sand at the moment). I've never taken the approach of painting a whole army and then basing it afterwards before, so that should be interesting...
On the undead side, I finally got my hands on the Briar Queen model, so I shall paint her up at some point soon
"Finished an army" is something you don't read very often on a rank and file system... Congratz Dude
I'm working on 3 Soul Reaver Cavalry Models (aka Blood Knights) to upgrade my regiment to a horde, doing some zombie trolls and a Werewolf Champ for an upcoming tournament at the end of September. My first one, curious what will happen
Mucking around with a project I've been toying with for a while - classic D&D monsters. I think the Reaper Bones models, among others, make a few things affordable, now. My first project is Hill Giants. With a display board. Not the first time I've said that, yet to actually happen. If it works out I'll be following it with all the major Giant races and popular D&D monsters! Yes, it's another project of infinite length...
Hehe, I did Greasus myself not so long ago, the carrier looks very similar. And it's the model which made me hate finecast. Never worked with before, and will never again if there is a way to avoid it.
Quick question, because this here is one the more frequented, does anyone have a good idea for similar models like the gw stone trolls? I don't wanna spend 30+ bucks for one model, but love the models themselves. I'm looking for big, but lanky trolls, which I can turn into...ballerinas - don't ask questions please.
Here's a WIP image from my Hill Giants project. So much unlikely musculature, so much fake tan, so many big sticks!
Struggled a bit to get his far - did some conversions which I think on balance were more trouble than they were worth, and made the mistake of hand mixing slightly different skin tones rather than working straight from the bottle. These are a lot of surface area to cover with 3 or more base coats! I'm also learning that these models don't respond so well to my normal painting style because of the lack of texture (compared with the big Reaper Dragons, for example) The next stage of working on their skins is going to be interesting...
Shortly a good friend took pics of all my stuff, with fitting background, professional camera and so on. I'm extremely happy with the first result he showed me, so I when the rest is done I can repost my whole army, which is something I'm urging to do since the great photobucket crisis of...I think...2015? '16? which had cost many of us nerves and tears Most of you may have seen this guy before, when I posted him in one of the challenges, but here he is again, shining in new light if you want so So from now I'm working on a good way to present those new pics, besides finishing the goblin circus in the beginning of next year.
Hexagonal base display board. 12 spaces for just 7 models so far, so I have some leeway over how to position them. Was going to be all 3mm MDF but the cork tile was much easier to cut to shape to fit around the bases.
