Can't wait to see some more of the dwarfs painted up, looking good so far!

How ironic it is that as fast as we spread progress and hope throughout the galaxy, the Tyranids spread death and despair. Only united can we hope to stand against them.

Hey Guys. I fully intended to do more test models and then on to the more factory level painting but the last couple of days have been MANIC!

Anyway what I have done is another test model which I am more happy with, especially in the gold area. Still haven't got the right level yet though.




The mix I have for the gold areas is Chainmail watered down to a wash consistency with (when dry) a layer of Gryphonne Sepia. When down right it looks like a dull bronze/gold. However, I think I watered down the chainmail too much and so the pigment is as strong as it should be. However I will endure and perfect later on! I hand in my essay this week so will have a more free time then.

looking good, sir. one thing though, give the chainmail areas another wash or to of badab black, to give more definition to the recesses between the ringlets of mail. maybe do the same to the axe as well...

Yeah, I ran out of time to do that along with the shield boss as well. The guide said you wouldn't need to do it but he was painting IG so probably a bit different. Once I get the basics down I will start doing line highlighting and touching up the bits that I don't like. Ideally I want them to look as close to my original warriors as possible but in less time!

Not to let aquatic_foible have all the glory I have made some progress with my stunties!

Basecoated half with the badab black and the other half have had a wastered down mithril silver wash (thanks aquatic again for the tip) on all the metal bits. why half have one thing and other different? I forget that I was *supposed* to base coat everything in black before doing any washes, so Im going to do an experiment to see if it is necessary as it is quicker without. Also did my grudge thrower, looks good I think.





Unlike the elvish craft...elf I set the bar high and stupidly sparyed more models then I have hope to paint in any reasonable time frame so any meaningful updates (read: finsihed models of any quality) will be a while. Ah well we shall persevere!!!

Looking good! As you know I have recently started working on my stunties so it will be nice having some one starting from basically the same point so I can follow along with your progress and to further motivate myself to get projects done. Keep it coming! +rep

once the models are at this stage, it really helps to drybrush them with white again, before applying colour / metal washes...really helps to maintain a distinction between the recessed and raised areas of the models. basically, gives you all your shading right at the start!

can't wait to see these guys finished
