Hi folks, I know I promised pictures of my army a while back, but lacked a decent camera to do it. Fortunately the gentlemen at the Tempest 3 tournament were kind enough to take a few photos of the army, so I’ll share them here I picked up the player’s choice award for the army which I’m obviously very proud of (I think it was the evil pug in the hammerer unit that won it for me ;))
Longbeards with Runelord
Hammerers with Lord and BSB
Pictures of the other armies, players and tournament staff (and an awful picture of myself showing just how badly I smile for cameras) are in the Latest Tournament news section of The warhammer forum (The Thread is called Tempest 3 winners or something similar). Definitely recommend the event, it’s always fun even though I get systematically battered on a regular basis ;).
At the minute I’m having a slight detour trying to make a daemon army based more on damned souls and blasphemous imagery rather than fantasy monsters. Having said that though, I have some hobgoblins, a hellcannon and a few other bits and bobs to be working on too.
Even though I’m more of a collector than a gamer, I do love the indy tournament scene for meeting new players and having a laugh. If the FW book gets accepted by the tournament scene I’ll probably bulk up the army with more true chaos dwarf units rather than “counts as” models. I’m hoping to make an iron daemon at some point
The skin colour is actually a very pale grey, I think the camera flash might have tinged it slightly purple
Still, it’s a very simple colour scheme. Because the Abyssal dwarf models only have a few patches of skin showing, you can get away with a very basic technique. It’s basically just codex grey, with quite a heavy highlight of astronomicon grey and a light wash of badab black. if you wanted purple-tinged skin, you could try replacing the badab black with leviathan purple, though I would only use a very light wash
