First unit of my Middenland host is painted. To my surprise, bases proved to be the most challenging part of the 10mm miniatures :o

Sick painting !

With so many great painters around I feel like I better ditch all my efforts and start selling off.....  there is NO way that I can find time and skills to get to this level...

Stunning work!  And yes fiddling with basing has been a big pain for me as well. =-<

Great stuff. Were they dipped or washed? And yes, getting paint on the basing material and NOT the models is a pain. You can try some fluid retarder in there, to keep the paint wet and give you enough time to mop up a mistake after it happens. That assumes you know you did it though...

Excellent painting. The inking has worked really well!
Basing is a pain - but at this scale it can make the difference between a stand looking just ok and looking good.

I don't worry too much about the odd splash of brown on the feet/lower legs of models. It just looks like mud and no one can see it unless they pick up the models to examine them anyway.

Thanks for comments :)

First two units of halberiers & hero. I am quite happy with the colour scheme. I wanted to paint Averland army initially, but yellow color was just pain :P







My whole Middenland force so far:

Hi, the look great! ;)

One question, Brown inking or dipping with army painter? I used ink for my high elves with highlights, but I think for my next army will try army painter dipping

Yellow is one of the most difficult colours. I think you make a succeed going for middenland instead averland!

Very nice

Army dip is great for larger figures but for 10mm I think it makes the figures too dark. I stick with brown ink.

That's just my taste anyway - you may want to do a "test pilot" unit?

I tried Citadel wash at the first time, but the result was not very good. This is Quickshade (strong tone), but applied with a brush, which I believe makes a big difference to dipping.

An update after a long while. Wish I had more time for painting  :P

Group of Empire heroes. They keep matching with the rest of the army, I've just decided for more distinctive colour scheme for the (fire) wizard.

You are aware that I run a small company taking on commission work right?  ;D

@Paboook, your models looks great, I find that good basing really finishes off the miniatures in WM. Basing and Coherency are the most important aspects of painting WM I think.
