Great looking knights.
I thought the GS work looked fine, but they are your army after all.
As for the orc skin, they are easy, camo green followed by green wash, sorted.
In regards time, I find that proper planning allows me to maximise the time I have available, I wouldn't say I had more or less than anyone else :). After painting a lot of armies for warmaster I have found a number of ways to get a satisfactory paint job done as quickly as possible.
Having 2 small girls, a very active whippet and a wife who works full-time as well as being on call 24/7 means I have to carefully alot my time to specific things. That said I could do with 36 hours in a day.
The important thing is that you are painting more than you were before :) That has to be a good thing.

After a bit of illicit kitchen varnishing I've got the Inner Circle Knights finished off (though the varnish dulled the red a bit so they may get some more love):



And this week's early entry, a yellow-Santa wizard:



Eagle-eyed forum fans might just recognise the colour scheme from somewhere. It seems that originality has been sacrificed on the altar of speed painting.

Both will get a quick 'grass trim' when the glue dries...

Very nice, it also seems to have dulled the metal a bit, which I think looks very nice with the red. In fact, it's given me an idea to maybe paint one of my Empire heroes in a gun metal and red scheme. Hmmm....

Yes, just a bit:



Well, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery I hear... ;)

Hi,

Here it goes my little contribution... Is the second unit of Tomb swarm scarabs. I am not sure if I want to use them based or not. Last home-playtest of the unit, makes me feel that I prefer the unit without basing, with the 20mm frontal that the figures has.

To base or not to base? that's the question
just quoting shakespeare...

So until I have my ideas clear, I will post the pic of the second unit without basing.



I know the pic quality is horrible, sorry mates

Well every single unit in the game, with the exception of characters and a few really, really large beasties (well ok, one) and some siege equipment are mounded on 40x20mm bases. So, by not basing them to the Warmaster standard you are making life difficuilt for yourself, never mind increasing its attacking frontage, and of course reducing its footprint on the table, therefore making it easier to command and more difficuilt to outflank.

And of course the best use for these in 'normal' games of Warmaster would IMHO be to represent units gained through the 'raise dead' spell...

It's certainly something that I hope you find flattering - the compliment I'm trying to pay is to say that your figure looks fantastic and that I admire your choice of colours. Picking schemes is something I can do but it just takes forever and I'm pushed for time. Of course I tried to disguise things by adding in the funny little book carrier dude! Yours still looks better than mine but I reckon I got close enough. The main thing I prefer about yours is the way he is central to the base while mine looks a little off centre. And of course now I'm eying up your Romans (that chap on the horse is superb, I was admiring the skintone on his arm this morning!).

Another quiet week on here.
I like the Empire wizard, very nice.

I have finished my final 6 units of the Orc and Goblin army.
Here they are, Orc warriors:








All together


I will take some full army shots and that is me done  ;D
In the interim before the next challenge, I am hoping to get some bits and bobs finished (empirex4, chaosx20 and dwarvesx8), before I choose my next force.

Keep up the hard work, I look forward to seeing the finished results.

Now got to find an opponent with 7500 points of troops :)

Clearly, you'll need to paint another 7500 pt. loaner army so you can put all your orcs on the field.

That is a truly insanely large army. You know, the most I've ever fielded in a game was 3k, and most of that was bare metal... I really would like to play a truly huge game of Warmaster or Warmaster Ancients one day, it might even take a day to play at 7k+pts...

As an aside, I have been slowly plugging away at my unit. I've finished the command stand, one other stand and have almost finished the final stand. Just got the sheild markings on the 2nd half of the stand and all the metalics to touch up, then its done. I guesstimate being able to post a picture on Monday, maybe Tuesday this coming week. Then I've got RL concerns to take up my evenings for a couple of weeks, and then I'll be on to some Space Hulk figures ocne I polish off that pegasus, then I'll go onto finishing off my WM Empire army for the WW, then back to my EIR army in Feburary. Since I'll have a bit more time during the day available with the girls being in nursery for three days a week 9-3, I might even be able to make better progress...

Oh and I'm setting up/relocating a wargames club. We're going to have our first club night on Wednesday the 25th of November, actually I'd best post an update in the thread I started...

Azrael, it is really amazing and nice. Congratulations!.

I like a lot the banners of the infantery units with the moon, sun and jaws, and the pump wagons!! Quite colourful also.

It would be really interesting to see that huge HORDE moving (or being GS, sometimes trying to move...  ;D) towards a rival army on the table.  :)

Azrael - that's superb, simply stunning seeing them all together. I genuinely can't work out how you work so fast at this standard. I'm very very jealous. I'm also jealous of the little houses, are they the old Forgeworld ones?

As for my efforts, I'm not sure how long I can hide behind the tactic of painting a character each week! I've started work on the next unit of crossbowmen and hope I can get them finished by the end of next week to keep up on the pace - it'll mean that I've got a legal army even if it is only about 800 points or so and if it's packed out with characters and warmachines. After than who knows, I'll aim to paint up another unit of knights I expect as they're relatively quick and always useful in games. But, I've just accepted a commission on a Blood Bowl team so don't be surprised if there's a return to the characters...
