Default Waystones

Hi guys, Im think im starting to see why there arent many fantasy project logs on here! is no-one interested at all? a little feedback would be great!

Anyway, heres an update:

I made some waystones as a bit of themed scenery to go with the army.

I used an old white dwarf article (WD308) on modelling Wood Elf Waystones, and just changed the rune to one from the High Elves army book.

I also made a couple of ruined waystones, mainly because I had lots of little pieces of Polystyrene left over

The runes were engraved using a biro and the bases are just layers of cardboard with filler covereing the gaps.

apparently I can't upload the pictures though... is there a maximum amount you can have in one thread?

Well i'm definitely interested, though it's hard to know what to comment on when you have so many pics in one post. Personally i find the logs easier reading when it's 1 squad or 1-2 models in a post. Might just be me though

I love that dragoin model, and your doing an excellent job painting it up. I think the blending could be a little more graduated, but unless your getting close up the effect is very good.

The converted Ellyrian Reaver is wicked as well. A squad of those will look really nice.

cheers buddy, I'll try to bear all that in mind!
I have 6 Ellyrian Reavers converted the same way, so maybe next post I'll get some pics of those up?

any ideas why its saying the photo's are too large?
I resized them all the same way as before :/

anyway, thanks for showing interest and the advice

Its probably easier to use a hosting site rather than using attachments like you are.

Photobucket.com is the one I use but there are others which are ok.

Your Dragon caught my eye in particular but the whole army is very nice, its nice to see something other than the standard colour scheme

Please carry on with posting your project, its hard being one of the few WHF project
loggers but only with the perseverance of members like yourself will it get better.

Thanks a lot Vash, I will have to look into that now.
I'm not too bright with computers if I'm honest, but if I can sort something out I will have some more progress for you guys soon!

Hello again,

So I was hoping for a game today against my friend's Chaos army (or one of three really, he has Chaos Daemons, Warriors of Chaos, and a Monster Army using Throg the Troll King), but I couldn't make it in the end, as my brother is in the process of moving out, and we're all switching bedrooms and it's just a bit hectic at home right now...

Anyway, the main subject of this post.... hooooopefully, here are the pictures of the Waystones, uploaded via photobucket


Now to finish that first Repeater Bolt Thrower...

Now they look cool and using a pencil/pen to do the runes is an inspired notion.

Are you sealing them with something before painting them?

On a side note if you use the [IMG] code you can pop the pics straight in the post without using the attachments.

Also good for signatures should you want one.

Good stuff! It's nice to see a High Elf army; I even like the wood elf inspired look.

The Ellyrian Reavers are good, though I'm not sure about the amount of armour on them.

My first contact with the Warhammer was actually High Elves some editions back, remember I read that army book over and over again before I got into the hobby myself. Lovely to see someone making a log about them!

I like the green dragon, the skin/scale looks very good. However the braces (the metal) looks a bit off compared to the rest of the model. To me it feels like they are missing a wash (badab black or similar).

Keep up the good work!

@Syph: yeah the scale mail does look a bit too heavy for fast cavalry, but I'll try to make it not stand out when I paint it, maybe give it 2 washes rather than one?

@ xenobiotic: Funny you should say that, I gave the dragon's armour plates a Badab Black wash earlier today

@all: thanks for the comments, I have finished the first Repeater Bolt Thrower tonight and will try to get the crew done and some pics up tomorrow
