To help break up the huge project that is my high elves, i wanted a side project that was a little bit different to keep my painters brain more challenged and less bored.
You might have seen earlier on i posted a couple of short WoC lists, and i have decided to start assembling a small 600point list for games of swifthammer. So, here are the first photos of the first unit i have bought, a Marauder Horseman Musician. As my unit wont be featuring a champion, this dude will be the focus of attention in the unit. What do you think?
And here is the finished result! Not my tidiest work, but meh, he aint no fancy pants elf. I wanted something that looked rough and ready, but bright and full of life at the same time! Very happy with this chap (No horse riding pun intended)! And as other than a handfull of my spear elves this is one of my first models paintd over white primer, im very pleased indeed!
Have included the paint pots directly behind the mini to sw what colours i used in early stages, can explain the method i used for colours if you would like though! Dont be shy just ask!
Love to hear your thoughts as always!
Looks fantastic. It looked great before the addition of the blood, and then it got better. Nice work. Look forward to seeing more.
Thankyou, i was worried that the blood had ruined it and made it a bit too busy, but im glad i added it in the end. I felt as though the horse looked to clean before. Will get the rest of the guys done tomorrow hopefully!
Nicely done mate the head swap is cool and and colours work well. I great quick job, the unit will look great. I have some of these waiting to be built, the stuff you get with the kit is fantastic.
What else are you intending to work on?
I have logged on to start my WoC project log, so seeing this i had to stop by and look
Looking forward to your updates.
Thanks, i had a couple of spare bits left over from the old 'beastherd' kit, and as the head matched the horses almost perfectly i just had to add it!
Its possibly one of my favourite kits, its certainly my favourite cavalry kit. The spares are excellent, they offer so much potential and all work well with other WoC kits. I look forward to seeing yours done! Ill check out your log as soon as ive finished typing this mate! After this ill be buying a chariot kit, then sme warhounds, then another chariot (for a gorebeast) and then archaon for my hero (One of my favourite models alongside grimgor ironhide, the shaggoth and the jugger lord)! All in good time though!
Thankyou for looking and leaving your comments its very much appreciated! Ill head over to your project log now Warparth!
Firstly, thankyou for the comments Dave, attention to mould lines is something i need to work on, iv never really given them much notice its a habbit i need to stap out now really.
It took me around 3 hours to reach this stage, left them this afternoon though as i was suprised by the Mrs. Going to add blood/gore like the musician, but less of it for these guys. Great to here your thoughts!
Added a couple of small tatoos to the musician, will be adding these to the riders and some marks to the horses too to add a contrasting colour, something i feel the models are lacking. Also have tried out some green washes on the metal too for the same reasons.
