Title: Tale of Warmaster Painters: July 2017
Post by: Stormwind on July 08, 2017, 07:21:15 PM
Hey, it's gone quiet but I thought I'd put up the topic again in case anyone wanted to share what they are doing!

Since I finished my Dark Elves, I'm on to Empire, now.

Initially I thought that the low hanging fruit of the cannons and steam tank would appeal to me but weirdly my muse dragged me towards the really intricate Knights.

Here is my first test strip that is 90% complete.  Just need to figure out the feathers and touch it up.

Those are some good looking Knights to start us off.

I'm all about orcs at the moment. Should have finished a strip or two tomorrow and will update with pics.

Not managed to get around io the actual unit of orcs but I did paint a general and shaman instead.
Photo seems to have washed out all the highlighting but never mind!

EDIT: Edited the images to be an acceptable size rather than SUPER size.

Small update - 2 strips of blue themed Orcs. Decided to try out some face paint, just a simple strip down the centre of each boy'z face.
Couple things noticed now I've re-scaled the images, I need to matte them down a little more. The decal's edging is showing on the banner (didn't to my eyes but does under the camera oddly) so I'll have to fix that too.

tried to post up close ups from July's effort which I finally based, however it keeps failing.. so I'll just post one image for now to see if that works.

What he just said!  Nice Slayers.

Thanks, although not happy with the red, it's more washed out pink. I will try harder with the next unit of slayers. But normal warriors are next on the table

Your units are painted well and the main thing i like is that they are realy clear.

Mine are frequently too dark and i don't see clearly what to change. So i appreciate yours doubly.

Thanks, i think to use brighter colours than i would on larger models, and make them stand out against each other, rather than realistic colours as at this scale as they merge into one at this scale. I also spend more time than i should adding detail that is never seen. Here is my thunderer against my 25mm thunderer. It would have taken half the time if i just done plain brown tunics but I enjoyed the challenge.

I love them ! You could even use brighter yellow.

Those colours are clearly for imperial dwarves, not dwarves army. Do you plan to create a dwarvish unit amongst an imperial one ?

Post by: Clawlessdragon on October 10, 2017, 08:36:06 PM
True - they are imperial dwarfs.. to be honest I had not given it much thought, I just wanted something that was bright and stood out. Then I thought I'd copy the colour scheme of my full size fellas which I painted in the 90's (then regretted it as its not easy doing stripes).
What would be considered dwarvish colours then, blue, green, brown and metal?

Yeah, you did it and regreted it, then... That's why you decided to do the same IN 10 MM RANGE few years later ! Not the kind of man learning from it's mistake, eh ?  ;D ;D ;D

Don't worry, we love our small figs, that's why we are considered as crazy people. I'm considered like that amongst my fellow club mates playing 28mm... And they are considered crasy by normal people. A sort of elite amongst the mad men !

Nevertheless, they are really great. Go on, i want to see the full unit. Don't trash the base with too many flocage or what !

They deserve to be put in perspective nicely.

Green and cream... White and blue... Red and blue (but i don't like this melange). Those are the traditional dwarvish colours from GW painting job.

Grin, mad and enjoy the challenge.
I tried to post close ups of the unit, but it kept failing, i eventually posted a single picture of 4 units, on page 1 of this thread.
Yes all good dwarf colours, I'm currently doing warriors, blue with red belts and gloves. Blue and white are reserved for my hammers, and green for the rangers. I should have it covered. More photos to follow, as i go. Cheers.
