Well thanks to this forum I decided to go for it and start a chaos dwarf army. So far I have 2 BfSP boxes and a few extras and am working my way through them using Xander’s excellent tutorials. I thought I may as well start an army blog to show off what I have done and get feedback and help with it.
The problem is my camera is rubbish…or I’m rubbish at using a camera, either way the pictures I get are not very good. So first of all a desperate plea: does anyone have a Hitachi HDC-57IES digital camera? and if so how the hell do you change the focus on it?
Using that camera this is the best photo I could get:
So at the moment I am forced to use my phone’s camera and this si what I get:
Not great are they? Well if you can manage to make things out that is a picture of my first finished 15 hob goblins. They are just night goblins with the top ponity bit of the hood removed and teh robe painted red. I figured this way they can be both hobbo’s and night gobbo shoulds I ever get round to starting that orc army I’ve been wanting for a while.
Now other than this photo annoyance the other main problem I have been having at the moment is just how the hell to paint chaos dwarfs. Quite a big problem really. First of all a question: how the hell do you paint their beards? So far I have undercoated them black and then painted dashes of shaodw grey followed by aleternating dashed of fortress grey and it looks ok but not great/. Any tips?
Also I have now got to the point where I have 2 colour schemes for the dwarfs but no idea which is better. This is a pic of the first scehem (I hope you can make it out):
So for those of you who can;t see the pictures the first colour scheme is red trim with black/grey scale male, a gold mask and the top of the head painted as bald skin and with the trim of the shield silver. The second scheme is gold trim with red scale male, a silver mask and the entire top of the head painted the same silver to be a helmet and the trim of the shield gold.
Any preferances? I’m leaning towards the first but I’m not sure at all.
Anyway that’s all I got so far. I’m in the process of finishing a unit of hobgobs with bows and a very special lord conversion.
Any feedback is appreciated and if anyone can help with the camra then I’ll love you forvever
