wow,

haven't taken a look at your plog in a while.

Those wolves look great and I love the burning eye on that black one!

Ulrik is looking good as well. The only thing I would recommend is raising him up on something. I used a big rock for mine, because he is a little shorter than the newer minis due to his age and raising him above them means that it is not so noticeable.

great work though

The blue tone is nice with the rest of the SW Marines but still stand out.

Very cool man + Rep

Tnx. I will try to do this (if I can loosen him up and away from the base..

The rest.. Thanx for the support..

Ok.. minor update again, and then I won't bother you with the wolves until all 4 are done. Added a base, and some detailing.



Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

Guys... I just wanted to share something not SW related.

I just bought the new IPhone 4S and tried out the camera.
The result is... good.

So you guys thinking on buying a good camera to photo your minis (and not are a professional)...
And well... I guess you can buy one of the latest smart phones and get a really really good result.

The shot is taken on my desk with 2 small lamps and the cam on maybe 30cm of distance.

Some day I might be good... but for now, that wolf will be removed by a new layer of grey.


Just had a good read/look through this and its a great project so far. I noticed this post about freehand and just wanted to try an help! I find that when painting symbols, chapter badges etc instead of just going all out and painting the fine lines (like the eagle you did) make a block shape and then using your background colour go over the block shape to add the finer details. Hope this helps with the freehand?

As to your question about the photo and picture quality I would say that it captures the details well, but the photos are a bit dark. Nice looking Deathmark though!

Thank you. It's a good advice... I'll take it and try something out..

Midge: Well... It was two small table lights and their for a bit black.
However with proper light sources I don't have to go and buy myself a new system camera for $$$$... now I can spend them at tools and minis... *yeay* But thanx for the comment of the Deathmark. Appreciate the comments as always.

It's been like.. ages... since I painted anything.
Family business like hating your job... changing job (I got the coolest job ever... as a maintenance flight simulator engineer)... got a new kid.... and so on.

Anyway... I'm back.
Got two updates... it's not a part of my SW army, but hopefully good enough to show you guys.





Is there a way to change the subject for the whole thread?

Some excellent new pieces man! I really love the shade of green on the Orc.

As to changing the title of the thread, if you go to either the project logs section or new threads search and double click in the black area just next to the thread title it will allow you to edit it.
