Modeling & painting / Re: [BFG] OSJC latchford's bfg stuff

Whi.......... Damn. Missed it.

Most space stations are run by the mechanicum. I painted all mine up in metallics and reds. So you could go that route?

It's looking great mate. I honestly thought it was finished before, but now youve added more!! Although, personally, I would have added the docking sections at a 45 degree angle. So the incoming fighter crews would come in between any docking ships (not over them). But that's just me. It looks great as is.

So, when are you going to paint it pink?

Cheers. as for the turrets, the little helion turrets were, in the end , snipped and superglued without Thier tabs on the bottom. I felt I had more control that way. I had originally drilled out tiny divots to locate them when doing the basilica innermost sanctum. I didn't bother on the dock arms ones for some reason!
Oh, and should you mean the turrets on the sides of the docking arms, that's not happening at all. If anything there will be little docking ports added (for smaller ships) or perhaps just the turret locator divots will be filled with GS...

Now colour... Before lord B says "white" I'm saying NO! Lol I've absolutely no luck at all with white bfg models. To be honest I was thinking of my battlefleet Armageddon scheme, with black on the flat areas, the roof of the dome and buttress/towers would be verdegris copper. But tbh I'm wondering if something better is called for. Perhaps just a few extra layers of successive lighter drybrushing on the Armageddon scheme to bring it up to a bone colour a bit more... Kinda like the official paintjob on fw's ramilies...

I was thinking of the Four Evils to proxy giants and big stone cats. Still thinking on the character mount, dragons were good in Chinese mythology. I think something darker would be a better thematic fit.

Wonderfull !

Find that it equilibrates better between width and heights now.

And also, it has a more "dockyard" aspect like that. But still clearly a temple feeling.

Courage gluing all those turrets.

What paint schem are you going after ?

Excellent work.

Black and green seem a little big too regular to me. I mean the surface is important, it would have added someting to insert an other colour at some point, maybe.

And on the other hand, the white prew is very nice and it's because of this long regularity on the rest of the colour.

Nice everything !

About the whirlwind, maybe you could have add a colour on the trapdoors. They are a little bit uniform to me. But aaah it's ok :)

Still excellent bases.

more progress:

so as you can see I got the docking section done. quite complicated and expensive and I've still one docking section pending (batteries in the post from vanguard)
I went for a pointy look to the bottom side, the inverted roof also serving as the base stand and the inverted towers as counterparts to the butresses.
forgive the shyte photos and the general wonkiness of the mini at present, a lot of this is simply balancing/blutacked in order to dry-fit for pics. a lot is un-glued to facilitate ease of painting and then again a lot of it is simply wonky LOL!

...and suitably painted, they'd presumably make a nice army for Cathay.  :D

There's the Cathay army list in the 2009 Trial Armies book but how applicable it might be to this interesting range...

Perhaps we need a revised list once this range is produced that could be added to the Warmaster Revolution book?

Edit: Monsters - a(n undead?) Chinese dragon is an obvious one. How about Yetis from your Ogre range as well, "Wild beasts from the west of Cathay in thrall to the Necromancer General"? Or something from this lot:

Thanks guys. What wrong with it? 7 layers, that's what's wrong with it :P Although, to be fair, I think the green on my Gothic fleet is probably just as much with all the washes etc..

I'll paint a Battleship (eventually) and an old Emperor class ship from space fleet (to use as an Endeavour/Endurance) in those colours. I'll hopefully get the light cruiser done but I'll have to wait until I get the samples back to get the Battleship underway :( Not sure what else I want in the fleet though!

EDIT: I forgot to say, I sliced about 1mm off the backs of those launch bays so they didn't stick out so far. I really like the slimmed down look. I'll be doing that for future ships!

Warmonger Miniatures / 10mm Terracotta Army
« Last post by Dave on May 19, 2019, 12:30:13 PM »
I met the guys at Dancing Yak Miniatures earlier this year at Cold Wars and we talked about the possibility of a project together. These are some early WiP shots for it: a 10mm Terracotta army. They're going to be my alternate take on undead, instead of skeletons the souls of these warriors are bound to terracotta statues by their masters. These are the spearmen, I'd like to do crossbowmen, calvary, chariots, artillery and maybe some big monsters s well. We're looking for feedback at this point, so thoughts?
