I'm taking a break from infantry this month, so I'll paint a unit of carrion, a unit of skeleton cavalry and 2 Polar Fox  Tomb King characters. I started on Tuesday, so I'll post some WIP photos soon.

I actually have a WIP for once, ha ha.

I intend to paint at least one High Elf archer unit.  Trying to make a legal 2000 point High Elf army, so not sure where I'll go after that.

Ok I will be in for 3 units of daemons.

Summer is over so there might be more time to paint, after 2 failed Tales (June and July)

Cheers

Ole

I will go out in holidays, so I will be out, but I will try to participate with at least one unit.

Mycenaean infantry (sorry for the gramma)

I just finished my myceanic unit:

Then a bonus character for my Roman Army, Erronious an old hero how is searching for his sons who were kidnapped by the pirates years ago:

Alright, I'd like to try again this month.

I will try to finish up my pledges from former months:

1 Unit of Empire Halberdiers
1 Evil men Dark Hero on Drake

and just maybe:
1 unit of empire crossbowmen (which would make me have my first legal 1000 point warmaster army!  Woohoo!)
Title: Re: Tale of Warmaster Painters - August 2016
Post by: Aquahog on August 05, 2016, 02:10:11 PM
And for myself, a unit of Empire knights.

Here are my early in progress photos. The carrion unit is "lead" by a vulture from (I think) Malifaux, which provides a little variety.

It's a tribute to one of my favourite old models from the 80s:

Wow, are those polar fox models mixed in?  It all looks fabulous!

Post by: dry_erase on August 06, 2016, 12:27:49 PM
The characters are Polar Fox and particularly good. I've checked and the vulture is from Malifaux:

I picked it up cheap at Leisure Games (Finchley) when they were having a sale.

Just realised I had a good spectrum on my desk from base coat to two different washes to final form.

Lined them up and took a photo, about as close to a proper WIP sequence as I'm likely to do. =)

I like that - it's nice to see the various stages you go through. They're looking great so far!

I've never painted High Elves, but they look so uniform that I'm not sure I'd enjoy it.

I'm in.  Nippon Undead.  Quantity yet to be determined but this month probably just some test pieces/units.

Hi Guys,

I managed to get some stuff done. Well they are finished except of the bases. It is doable in 10 days left.

I'm not going to finish before the end of this month.  Batch painting over 30 units was a bit much, even with a very simple colour scheme!
