[Archive] [05-21-2008] Xander's and Vexxus's Chaos Dwarf Army!

Sojourn:

oooooh, good work boys :slight_smile:

Vex, I really like the inverted colour scheme on your hobgoblins (they are hobgoblins, right!?)

Xander:

Xander my man :) and Vexxus you too - just love what I see :cheers
But I do have some questions:
- Your Taurus, how did you get it from the wood elf steg to a CD Taurus? :o
- All your ruin baces, those are very great - how did your make these?
- Your Hobgoblins banner, is it from BFSP or is it converted?
Now when talking about Hobbos, how can I make a bare-belly for my Hobbos?

Well thats all my man, keep it the great work :) I hope to see some more in a near future :) Love your work :hat off

Cheers mate :cheers

-Just add some Green Stuff!
that's one beautiful army
but the core of your army should be improved

can't wait to see your take on blunderbusses

We do need more core. A unit of 25 more warriors is in production, and the BBs are coming along too.
oooooh, good work boys :)

Thanks! :hat off

Grish:

So who keeps this army? Are you going to split it up?

Xander:

Vex is more of a modeler/painter, so I am going to leave a bunch of stuff, including the paint, with him. I will be taking the completed stuff for gaming, Grish.

Grish:

If he likes, I can leave him a good portion of my army to paint if he’s into that, Xandor, conqueror of worlds.

Vexxus:

Grish
Erm... maybe if good portion = wicked cool converted character models???

Otherwise, I have more than enough on my plate as it is :)

If you are a very very very patient person, click here to see for yourself. Lots in the works, but nothing to present anytime soon ;)

Vexxus
No, just regular stuff. I don't even put all my own stuff together, maybe 1/4 - 1/3. No, I'm not a patient person. Haven't really painted a thing yet; I do trades with people. I know what I'm good at, and painting isn't it.

Perhaps either a 'wash' or 'dipped' army would be an ideal possibility for you!? It is certainly faster, and you can get some great looks with less traditional skills :)

I believe THIS is an example of a dipped army from this site.

Grish:

Yeah, that’s what dave was saying. He’ll show me when he gets here. I have no skills for painting as yet, have not dedicated any time to it.

THanks for the links, will email them to myself.

by hashut’s horns my models are not worthy to breathe the same air

Hashut’s Blessing:

So, Mr. Xander, how are the painted ones doing? Vexxus, how be the unpainted ones coming along?

Things are slow, but the good kind of slow, where quality comes before quantity, haha.

The Fire Sorcerer for the Chaos Dwarf army (also mordheim sorcerer) is completed and photographed, and ready for Xander to take with him this weekend, to join his painted bretheren!

Currently I am painting a prototype blunderbusser that Xander converted long ago, and another master conversion of his... a bull centaur. Both are just in the base coat + metals stage, but I hope to have them completed by next tuesday (since I am away all weekend).

As always you can follow my snail-paced progress at the ever daunting Vexxus' Progress Report.

Hashut’s Blessing:

Glad it’s the good slow, but it’d be better at that quality and faster :wink:

Vexxus:

*Searches for HB's blog to harass him*

haha

Hashut’s Blessing:

I seem to find alot of things on this site...soo...Blog... I have seen this before, they dont look that bad...

Edit: I see you were prepared...

Vexxus:

Please don’t tell me he took the photos down :frowning:

C’mon HB! Lets motivate each other to work hard, let it go both ways!

Hashut’s Blessing:

Well, I didn’t take the pics down, but apparently forgot that I’d moved the pictures on the photobucket website :smiley: You get some pics up and I’ll repost mine. Then, your second set will get some new pics of mine :wink:
