Tale of Warmaster Painters [December]
« on: December 01, 2009, 10:10:36 PM »
So the last month of the tale begins and it looks like we're a dwindling bunch!

I think I've just about painted enough units to coast my way into the last weeks without shame but I'd really like to get more done before the end (and maybe continue in the new year). At the moment I'm working on a unit of flagellants which are my favourite sculpts I've painted so far. They may be giants compared to the halberdiers but they are really well done. To make things tricky I'm working on a commission for a Blood Bowl team and I'm about to move house so my painting time is virtually non-existent. Oh, and I'm struggling with a need to buy myself a Parliamentarian army from Warlord Games to use with Warhammer Historical's English Civil War. Hopefully I'll manage to complete another three or four units before I succumb!

@jchaos - good to see you're still with us with more nice skellies. Keep them coming, I'm finding the company really helpful and inspiring.

'onnest Guvner, I'm still a'tit

Actualy the painting tray is setting next to me, begging to be picked up, but Real Life(TM) is throwing up to much interference, and will continue to do so for at least one more month or so. I did however set myself a serious deadline, the Tribe of the Red Hand WILL make it debut on the tables of the upcomming EuroGT in Austria !!!

I've got Mechrite Red on the back of my hand and on my palette. When I play Space Hulk tomorrow at least some of the Terminators will have red on them that isn't the colour of the plastic they are made of... I'll post some pics elsewhere when I've got some worth showing...

In other news the club seems to be going well and has plenty of interest. I'm considering picking up some more boards tomorrow, as the four we have isn't quite enough...


BTW, are we planning on starting a new tale in the New Year? If so, I'm going to try finishing off a couple of my WM Empire units in January for the Winter Warmer, and will then go back to my EIR's in February. But then I've said that at least three or four times already...

Right, back to painting, I'll stop at midnight I guess. Better than last night when I didn't get to bed until 3am taking tests, and other not too fun things...

End of December i will probably manage to paint some more of my orks finalluy (so far managed meager 1 unit of boar boyz and one stand of pendraken ork infantry, but with green skin army painter things will go much quicker now... only thing that stops me is wh40k tournament at 20th, for which i have to paint some boyz and two battlewagonz still).

Yep, I have never be out "in mind", but PhD and lab work is taking me all my time. Anyway if the Tale continues in january, I will be in to finish my skellies. I think I had manage to do the half of the proposed list so I am "half happy"  ;)

Greetings all,

I'd like to join in the Tale of Painters, either this month or next.  What do I need to do to sign up?  I've read the guidelines.

I plan to work on a Demon Army, but I have not yet put together an army list, or even a list of unit to convert and paint.

Thanks, and sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

Ed

Hi Ed. I say start now, we need some fresh blood! I'm hoping that there will be a fresh start in the new year but why not get going now, share some lists, pictures and tips to keep us all motivated.

Jchaos79, those undead are awesome!  I like that you used Death as the general, and have the four horsemen of the Apocolypse.  The funerary swarm is great!  Did you create the scarabs yourself or did you get them from somewhere?  I also like the honor guard -- they look a lot like the Tomb Kings skeletons.  How did you do those?

Congrats to those who have continued to post completed units, PW, Jchaos79, Stomm, and the amazingly prolific Azreal71, who seems to have finished up his massive ork horde with time to spare.  My progress has come to a halt due to end the of the season construction push, but now I have spare time and will be back into painting the Ostland army.  I'm working on a unit of knights at the moment. 

Now that I have time, I am still planning to get my proposed army finished up by the deadline. 

Thanks again to those who have kept at it.

Greetings!

I have finally managed to take some pictures to show that I am still in the tale. It definitely went much slower than I wanted, mostly due to some real life duties taking the priorities. We all know how it goes, but I am back and I will keep painting some more. :) I actually like this idea so much that I hope to contribute further to any new season, which might kick off next year. I still have some miniatures to paint. :)

Anyway, here are my pictures. I start with a unit of archers, which is the last infantry regiment in the 2000 army I am currently painting.



In parallel I also painted a lonely hero on elven steed as I felt like it's time to paint one for this army. So here we go, the first character for Warmaster I have ever painted:



I have just finished a heavy cavalry squadron. Main colours are the same, but I find it very useful to paint feathers in different colours, characteristic for particular regiment. I also try to choose the same miniatures, if there is some variety of them.



And last but not least is another limited range miniature I got lucky to have it. It is Teclis, released some time ago. Initially I planed to have him alone, as I did it with hero on steed, but then I spotted these swordmasters. I really like it the way it turned out, great mage casting spell and protected by the best warriors of the elven kind. :)




I hope you like them too. :)

Cheers! :)

Swordmaster, great, and if I find the Teclis model I've got somewhere I might have a stab at painting him. Actually I should probably have a go at something I might actually use first.... Incidentally High Elves were my first Warmaster army, simply because I couldn't wait for the Empire army to be released. I got as far as painting half a strip, IoW two Archers...

Oh and my only criticism is that I think that little diorama would look best on a circular stand. A big washer or something would work I guess, or a 2p piece to keep it a bit more compact...

Thanks for your comments Black Ed. There is a threat open in warmaster discussion about the funerary swarm http://www.sg.tacticalwargames.net/forum/index.php?topic=866.0 where it explain which models I use (they are from reaper miniatures).

The honour guard is from pendraken, the egypthian mythical range.

looking forward to see  your miniatures Black ed.



Swordmaster, it is great to see a great number of units painted. And very pretty all of them. I particulary like Teclis, I think is from storm of chaos blister.... am I right? good work
