Default Ulthwe on it's way

I figured I would make a thread on my progress on my Ulthwe army. It might be cool to watch or maybe even look over later.

I have a lot painted already though nothing really finished. Right now my main goal is finishing up my harlies. Gah, their so much work and getting them converted and uniquely painted is a pain. I've got 2 squads of 6 and I plan to make kisses for all of the ones that don't have them in the pack.

Pretty soon I'll post picks of them at their current state as well as a few of my whole army.

Enjoy!!

I got some pictures, I'll get some better ones... these are kinda nasty.



The Troupe Masters I'm working on now, the one on the right a friend did the majority of. Kinda tough to match his quality but getting there... ish



Another View, I'm going to have to redo alot on the White one (the ones I'm working on). My army's more dark (black and purple) so I think I'll try the white as grey. It's a little overpowering as it is. Then redo the back checkers when I have more patience.



the other stuff I'm working on

Ugh... I'll take better pictures sometime...

Looks fairly good to me. I would suggest putting a sheet of white paper behind the models when you take a pic. Will make the models much easier to see.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

So, I changed the second Troupe Master to grey, looks lots better, but before I get picks I'm gonna do a little more cleaning.

for now, the rest of my army!!!

Thanks guys. I've got tomorrow off, so I'll probably be able to get a few things finished and I'll update again!! I hope to get it more often.

I'm planning on basing soon, I've got some Autumn colored flak I'm pretty excited about but can't decide what kind of ground base I want. I was planning small piles of the Autumn colors like leaves but can't decide if I want to bottom the base in brown like dirt or green/yellow-green for grass. I'm thinking Brown with Red-Orange-Yellow piles would be good contrast to the dark Ulthwe.

And what do you think about the kisses, I'm gonna green stuff them but I can't decide to make them like spears, held in hands so all I have to do is cut the sword blades off the old models and put a kiss, or completely work the hands to fists and put the kisses on the wrists (more work but more "correct to fluff," though, sometimes following it too well is more () boring).

Which reminds me my lgs is out of green stuff, ugh.

Edit: Ugh, couldn't resist.

Ok, so I'm taking a break from my harlies, again... (waiting for green stuff)

I've really been wanting to get some basing done, so I did, and I think it looks pretty good so far. I also have been finishing up my first squad of Dire Avengers. I gave them a light blue highlight hoping to give them a little more of their aspect colors, it's lookin pretty good.

And lastly, My Wraithlord I'm looking so submit to the conversion contest.


Bases!!!


Can you spot the blue?


Woo!!

Lastly. Are the First pictures onthe thread too big? I have fast internet so it's no problem for me, but it might be for some other people. Sorry, if it is I'll change them(I originally wanted to show the details, etc.)
