Default The K.R.I.E.G. Project

Hello all,

Well I have decided to throw myself on the grenade and seek motivation from all you out there to get my Krieg soldiers inline and ready for war. I have had abunch of my models just chilling in the closet with no real motivation to get them all painted up...I blame Warhammer Fantasy for that, LOL! Anyways, several months ago when I got my first 2 Krieg models, the two Grenadiers with Hvy stubbers, I painted them up as my test subjects. I think they turned out pretty damn good. I waited for a while before snagging a deal on Ebay for a Krieg army. (Everything you see painted brown, plus all the Grenadiers, Vendettas, and several tanks in the following pictures is from Ebay) I wish I could find that dude and smack him in the head! No seriously, He took all the models and just dumped them into a box and mailed them out to me. You can guess how they looked when they arrived..I was so Irrate! I spent days fixing them, green stuffing, trimming, the whole works.

Anyways, the time has come now to get these guys painted up. I have also entered into the 2011 painting comp to further motivate myself to get these guys done.

Look forward to hearing feedback form you all. I will keep you posted as I progress.

Here are the first 10 Kriegsmen that I plan on having finished sometime next week for the Jan 2011 painting comp. I will take some more pics as I progress with them.

That is an impressing army of Krieg. Nice test figures, looking forward to see the next gues in the painting comp. Have just finished " Dead Men Walking ", they are scary those Kriegs.

Nice to see an all FW army here on Heresy! Your wallet must be drying up bloody tears by now? Will be interesting to see if you manage to paint the entire army you have on your shelves

Thanks guys! Seriously, your words of encouragement help a lot. "Dead Men Walking”? I’m going to have to get a copy of that book. I loved the Vraks series, finishing Vol. 7 right now, another reason for my sudden boom of motivation!

As for my Wallet...LOL....Sigh, ya its pretty dry. But all is well. I’m currently going to school and the government pays me to go to school (Prior military if you were curious). I’m still expecting a huge Forgeworld shipment sometime in the next week also with additional stuff. It was part of my Christmas and birthday gifts from my wife. "I love her", hehehehe.

On a side note, how can I go about posting the pictures without having to make them attachments? When I go to other people post they have their pictures posted in a scrolling fashion with captions, what am I missing?

Thanks!

There are many ways. At first I used imageshack but then suddenly my pictures started to disappear (very annoying!). So now I use the Picasa Webalbum (http://picasaweb.google.com/)

There I have a Plog specific album where I upload my pictures to after I've compiled them (and auto adjusted them in Adobe Photoshop) with the [ IMG ] [ /IMG ] commando. To get the link I go to the web album find the picture I uploaded right click it and copy the link adress.

One thing to beware with picasa is that they will shrink your images unless you tweak the links you put into the IMG:

[...]/_S-fTsV8nxTI/TSeIB0FbQGI/AAAAAAAAAvg/l4LQK6sYSqE/s640/[...]
See the s640? That makes the image go 640 pixels resolution at most. If you change it to:

[...]/_S-fTsV8nxTI/TSeIB0FbQGI/AAAAAAAAAvg/l4LQK6sYSqE/s0/[...]
See that I changed it to s0? That makes the code show the picture in the original picture resolution.

Hope that makes sense.

The test models are outstanding. The skull masks remind me a bit of the enemy general in the movie willow, who pretty much strikes fear into small children and wee gamers. Well done.
