In an attempt to get some more Fantasy examples in this section I thought I would document my attempts at working through my Dwarf hold! If I get a spare hour I will write down the fluff I have vaguely worked out in me noggin.
My army thus far consists of the BFSP set, Box of Quarrellers and Warriors with lots of assorted models from Ebay. I have some photos of my force that I will include below.
50%ish of my BFSP set is painted to a reasonable standard as these were the first models I have painted in about 9 years. After a break of about 2 months due to work/school/general life I have now the time and inclination to begin work on my force with enthusiasm. Due to the nature of Ebay some of my models were covered in an awful paint job (though thats proabaly calling the kettle black in my case
) so I followed the masterful tutorials on this site to strip them off. However, not all the paint came off as you will see but enough I feel that it will get covered up by the spray.
Furthermore, I came across a guide to paint minis using mainly Washes on top of a white base coat so I thought I would give this a go as I do find the painting side of the hobby my weak point. Some models however weren't stripped as I want to compare to the two techniques and see which one looks best. Anyway, to the pictures!
My conversion for Bugman:
My runespriests(not painted by me but looks good so they will stay:
The "Three Amigos":
The Special Character "Helga"
Master Engineer (not painted by me but looks good so he will stay):
Lord on Shieldbearers (REALLY hard to get him to stick together
Although they are all equipped with HW and Shield I was thinking of making a few unit fillers which consists of Dwarfs handing out GW's from a big barrel int he center to show that they are ready for anything!
Possible start for such a Unit Filler:
Longbeards (but will combine with normal Warriors if needed):
Crappy, broken and probably last on my list to do Gyrocopter:
My Favorite unit =D, a mix of warriors from different editions to use as my rangers. To show that they have lived a long time away from their tunnel dwelling brethren.
My Artillery (will get a stone thrower as soon as I can):
And finally everything that I need to base and spray before I start the whole washing/painting technique:
Not much eh?
Anyway, sorry about the picture overload but this will be good for me to see how far I have come
Any hints, tips, advice et al will be gratefully appreciated as always and I hope to do this project justice!
