Post by: jchaos79 on June 24, 2016, 07:43:42 AM
Hi everybody,

It is open the space to choose what is your goal for July. This month everthing in 10mm is welcome (even 10mm little diorams wing wing bsonbudak).

Rules as always, when you finish your goal, post your final pics with the word [ENTRY] somewhere. There will be a poll at the end of the month, where everyone every forum member could participate. The winner of July will be give away with a Kislev original GW command stand, painted, varnished and based ready to command Kislev armies or being a Hero for Empire and Dogs of war armies.

So let's go, gentelmens!

1. Ole --> Forgeworld stone tower
2. Jchaos  --> Macedonian phalanx + command (Alexander the Great defending injured Philippo)
3. Aquahog --> Empire hero on Griffon
4. Stormwind --> Last chaos Chariot + Marauder Inf ... maybe but only maybe some Elves too
5. Tiberius --> Evil Hero on Drake
6. Cjbennet22 __ siege stuff
7. Mlkr__ not defined yet - goblin fanatic cannons
8. Dry_erase __ one skelleton infantry one chariots
9. Sjapie__ command one unir orca por dwarfs
10. Empireaddicted __ marauders
11. Gorrín__ finish chaos dragón +building maybe albion test strip

Last day of June,

I think we need at least 4 people to carry out the Tale for July. So, I will wait unitl sunday 3 of July, if there is no enough participation then we could pospound the Tale.

I'll do an Empire hero on Griffon then.

Post by: Stormwind on June 30, 2016, 11:44:08 PM
Oh hi, sorry for the delay.

I didn't get much done before so current plan is:

My last Chaos Chariot unit, that was meant to be done this past week but it spilled over into July, oops. :-X

Next I really want to get another Marauder Infantry unit done so I have a painted legal 2000 point army.  If I'm very good I'll be able to convince myself to do some Elves too!

I'm in!  At least I'll make a go of it if it's not too late.  I just got a hold of some of Yann's evil men.  I'd like to try to finish his Evil Hero on Drake!

Post by: cjbennett22 on July 02, 2016, 04:20:48 AM
I am also in if scratch building 5 siege towers for warmaster counts?  Oh, and a couple of sally ports and a whole bunch of piles of rocks for "rock droppers".

I doubt the towers will look all that good as that is the theme, I want the towers to look field built and hurried for combat out of the surrounding buildings unprofessionally by the soldiers that will be pushing them forward in a few weeks time.

I have a head start on them as I already started everything earlier this week.

I'm in again, slogging through my skeleton core troops. I'll paint a unit of skeleton infantry and another unit of chariots, but this time it's going to be Polar Fox, so that's more exciting than yet more GW.

Post by: cjbennett22 on July 04, 2016, 04:54:27 AM
I have attached a picture that shows the progress so far.  the foam blocks are all made, the wood pieces are started and stained on a couple.

I have 1 that I was allowed to make on the 3d printer at work, it turned out really nice after getting painted and washed.  Made it really rough to create the lines of wood but not registering that one, just the other scratch built things.

I actually ran out of glue tonight putting a few pieces together but I need to get some more supplies later anyways.  Add that to the list too.
Title: Re: Tale of Warmaster Painters - July 2016
Post by: Sjapie on July 04, 2016, 12:45:16 PM
I'm also going to chip in, will probably be just one unit, or some characters, not yet sure what. Orcs, or maybe some dwarfs.

Post by: cjbennett22 on July 06, 2016, 12:32:10 AM
Well shucks, thanks everyone. Ill need to show off my ladders later. I cut that balsa to size and just dipped it right into the can. Then leaned them up high and the texture held a bead of the stain making it a lot darker across making the illusion of ladder rungs.

I have also added pieces of the paper houses from brumbaer (sp) to try and make the towers look like they were made from the structures around the sieging army. Fairly simple construction as you can cut the wood sheets with a utility knife.

Looking good
Title: Re: Tale of Warmaster Painters - July 2016
Post by: cjbennett22 on July 08, 2016, 02:46:54 AM
those are really nice.  Chaos marauders are about the hardest things to paint up.  I myself just painted 2 units a while back and it was such a nightmare.  Constantly having to go back as I missed something because there is so many details on them.  I think Stormwind painted up a unit on his "lead mountain" thread that turned out very well and he mentioned their difficulty also.
Title: Re: Tale of Warmaster Painters - July 2016
Post by: Stormwind on July 08, 2016, 10:37:00 AM
One of the things I noticed with the Marauders is that I'd initially thought they were all wearing leather gloves.  Then I peered closer and whilst some of them are, most others seem to have bare hands / arms and then have bracers on their wrists!

Loads of little details like that on them.
Title: Re: Tale of Warmaster Painters - July 2016
Post by: Gorrin on July 08, 2016, 06:16:52 PM
I promise I will finish the chaos dragon. And a building. And at least an albion test strip!

Thanks for the comments and, yes, lot of pesky detail on the Marauder minis.  But they are some of the best scuplts GW did for WM and so I forgive them for the amount of time it too me to paint them.

I second the comment on you being a painting machine. You are welcome for the weak pound. It's English tradition for the poorest in our society to vote for austerity and recession!

Great work on your models.
Title: Re: Tale of Warmaster Painters - July 2016
Post by: jchaos79 on July 10, 2016, 07:37:40 PM
Two more phalanx done. I hope tomorrow to get painted the fourth. Then base them and take a progress picture.

I will put an order to newline design and buy a persian army to confront my greeks and macedonians.

The chariots are very nice models - I much prefer the chariot itself to the GW equivalent. But the horses' necks are worryingly narrow and I'm scared they'll snap off.

Thanks aquahog, they are from Irregular. I love them. So much flat surface where you can paint a scheme! no wrinckels or complicated deep detail.

I am just painting fast, but enjoying every figure. No inks, no highlight. Well, for telling the truth, in the deep blue of the elephant textil I did a quick blending. Just tabletop painting.

The orange banner on the side might be too big so I might trim it to be something else and I will do one other in a blue.  need to keep the banners plain as the siege towers will be used by orcs and elves alike throughout their life.

Vacationtime in the nice Swedish summerweather obliterates any chance of paintingtime but I wanted to show I have found at least a few hours to get some progress done. Dont know if I will finish in time or not but I think they will look quite nice when done :)

Going to a small tournament at Aquahogs place this weekend so at least I get some gamingtime! :D(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160729/550d6e65da810dd25def476decf626dd.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160729/875859a9a6f3f1b4ceaeaa184b0966cc.jpg)

4x Phalanx
