I like your work a lot. Your first green stuffed CD is much better than my first attempt. loving the arrows through the sheild! the only thing that I would change is the the fire looks too yellow, but that could be the flash from the camera. try mixing more reds and oranges into it. (it looks just like the guy otherwise!).
Keep up the good work
Edit: You’ve changed the layout now so this sounds irrelevant.
A few revisions on the sorcerer, just a few washes and a bit more detail to make it stand out a little more and a look a bit more like the original. I don’t want the fire any darker than this though or the whole model will look too drab I think.
Hey There, great stuff and I like the sorcerer. The skull face, is stark and I like it but it is too stark once you look at it a second time. The flames I really like but as a neophyte painting them I checked out this site http://hot-lead.org/advance/fire_prac.htm . In comparison your darker areas are inwards and the hotter areas are out as compared to his (and admittedly anal) logical approach. If you like your effect (and YOU are the final judge) … then keep doing it. Conforming to others expectations can mess with your head. “Standing on Giants Shoulders” previous efforts helps marvelously and they are great for inspiration, but maybe you can inspire them.
Just finished off the iron sworn command group a Khan and the front rank of my hobgoblins.
For the ironsworn I’ve painted their ensorceled weapons purple to single them out from normal infernal guard. The paint scheme’s fairly simple I may try for some fire effects on the red parts of the armour when I feel brave!
I’ve just used normal goblins for the Hobgoblin Cutthroats as I reckon with the fluffy hats and some extra weapons stuck on they look pretty good! Also they’re bigger than Gnoblars and night gobbos so sort of work! Not decided on a banner yet though so will ad that at a later date.
Again I’ve just used a standard goblin chief for the Khan as they do have some similarities with hobgoblins!
Finally got some photos of what I’ve been working on. Only problem is the light in the room I have is making the quality a bit poor. I’ve updated the first post with the photos as I find it more squared away. I’ve changed the weapons on the Ironsworn as I didn’t think the purple suited them, magma weapons much more fitting!
Cheers for your previous comments, praise and critisism is always welcome.
Next on my table is 30 Hobgoblins(They are however just standard goblins using the Wolf rider style heads.) and 3 old style Bull centaurs. I like the Big hat ones and i’m not too bothered about them not matching the Infernals as fluff wise they’re from completely different castes.
I’ve updated the first post with better photos as the last ones were pretty crap.
Also finished off 30 Hobgoblin Cuthroats and a champion for the Ironsworn. The command pack from forgeworld doesn’t have a champion so I just used a spare musician, sculpted some more beard and added a couple of weapons. I think he turned out alright!
The new photos look really good! What are your next plans for expansion?
Thanks! Figured out I occasionally get some natural light between 1pm - 3pm. I currently have a deathshrieker and 21 Infernals with Fireglaives but I have no undercoat spray until I get back to the UK next week where I can stock up. I've decided I'll wait for the new Bull Centaurs and sell my old metals ones so I won't be painting them now.
wow! good work!
i like your command conversions very much.
all of my original posts dont make very much sense now
that you have put up the updated pics...
Cheers! I didn't think the command pack suited the units so I had to do something. The Give you a Castellan with weapon options he can't take and no champion model! Very annoying! So I bought two packs (not cheap :sick ) and mixed them together to get what I wanted.
