December updates, some of which were painted in November. Despite the pace slowing down I keep painting. :)

1. Archers



2. Hero on elven steed



3. Silver Helms



4. Teclis and his Swordmasters





Next in line is the fourth and last Silver Helms squadron and second mage. Then, in order to finish painting my 2000 points army I have to paint 2 units of reavers, 2 "units" of eagles and a hero on a dragon. I still might do that this year. :)

Greetings!

The first "Tale of x painters" is over and here is the army I have completed for last few months.



In that time I managed to paint:

2 units of archers
2 units of phoenix guard
1 unit of spearelves (repainted)
2 units of silver helms
4 units of reavers
3 bases with characters

I will keep painting and posting photos of some more units as soon as I paint them. My goal is to paint all of them I have left. At some stage then you will see some more spearelves but also eagels, dragon princes and hero on dragon. :)

Greetings!

I hope you forgive me poor quality of pictures but I really wanted to post something after such a long period of silence. I didn't expect that a break after first tale was going to last so long. Fortunatley there is some progress in painting. I will upload better quality pictures as soon as possible. These are just to show you what I have painted recently.

1. Some more spearelves



2. Eagles



3. Hero on Great Eagle



4. Hero on Mighty Dragon



Cheers! :)

Great to see someone else plugging away.
I will reserve comment until you post your better pics as they look a bit yellow.  :(

Greetings!

I managed to get some better photos when we played a game a few days ago. (High Elves vs. Dark Elves, very tense battle, dark side won but it was very close and interesting battle :))

Ok then, here are the pictures:

1. Spearelves



2. Eagles





3. Dragon (I am not satisfied with the wings, I really rushed them and I believe I will repaint them)



4. Some group photos of the infantry





5. The army in the battle formation at the beginning of the fight





6. And the group photo of all the units I fielded that day (almost 2100 points)



Looking at the pictures I see many rough edges and that I was not careful enough. It can be eliminated easily just need to pay more attention :) I am glad with a general look of the army and it is a great feeling to be able to field entire painted force. Hope you like the pictures! :)

Cheers!

Now to comment.
I think the infantry look brilliant.
Always nice to see a non-white and blue army ;)
I think the eagles might benefit from a touch of dullcote to remove the sheen.
As for the dragon, it looks great, the wings are always tricky to do I find.
How about using a brown wash to blend the two shades followed by another highlight?

Keep up the good work.

Mick

Greetings!

Sorry for such a long delay but I was occupied with these:



And now I have found myslef painting vile Skaven for Easter Barbarian :) He decided his greenskins were a huge dissapointment and switched to his favourite ratmen. As he is preoccupied with too many projects with countless systems I offered some help and stepped up for a challenge. It is completely different story from my clean and shiny elves. So I decided for a little messy drybrushing and a lot of washing. I also wanted each Clanrat unit to be clearly distinguishable which helps in the game enormously, especially in their case. Below 4 units I have finished so far. Let me know what you think. I definitely enjoy painting them a lot. :)









Cheers! :)
