Dino - The big hat is a push pin with the smaller wide bit removed and the middle widened out with greenstuff.
Wilmark - I already thought of that, he’s gonna be even worse when the arms go on. I’m going to weight the base to keep him down. I’m using metal on the underside and possibly the cowering empire soldier from the old giant kit on the base itself
Wow, I’ve really neglected this blog. Anyway, there will soon be updates. Frist of all, I’ve finished the hobgoblin archer unit, which now look very cool all ranked up. I’ve also started work on an 18 strong black orc regiment and have converted several more miners. Sadly progress on the boar centaur is slow as the body is a very involved sculpt - the fur can only be added small sections at a time as I’m incrediblly clumsy and inevitablly end up squashing the area I’ve already done. My Chaos Army and Bloodbowl have taken up most of my modelling time of late sadly, so progress has been limited on the warriors. I will however include shots of my hellcannon on the new 100x100 scenic base I’m building for it.
Finally I’ve had a chance to get some work done on the army and post an update. With exams, work, a friends wedding, an insane ammount of summer antics and a hell of a lot of pre-season training, I thought these guys would never get done. Okay, I promised an update so here it comes. First up is my now competed blunderbuss unit:
These guys have been touched up a lot since the last batch of photos I took. Eventually I intend to bulk both blunder units to 20. I’ve also put the finishing touches to the unit of warriors with hand weapons and shields.
The biggest thing to change since the last post though is the creation of Lord Karbold’s bodyguard. These guys are used as miners when I use a dwarf list but here they are the furnace guard. They are armed with pickaxes to show that the Kinslayers are a rich mining clan.
It’s not all Dawi’zhaar though. Two new slave units have been added to the mix. First up are my completed hobbo archers. I decided to use paint schemes rather than conversions to signify these guys. These also some examples of my new black orc unit WIP. I borrowed the command group and a normal warrior for this pic. The rest of the unit will follow soon.
Thanks for all the nice words guys! The miners’ masks are done partly through moulding the hellcannon crewman, and partly through sculpting. This is because the original mask when cast doesn’t fit very well, so it needs to be trimmed and repaired. No boar centaur yet kera, you’ll have to wait for that one
I forgot to ask one thing: since you are building a unit of 18 BOs, what will you do with the remaining two?
