Hello guys :hat off
In this blog I want to show you my army. I made it because of motivation and, ofcourse, advices for such a newbe like me. First of all I have to say this is my first “true” army (I had some models of vampire counts and battle for skull pass box but I sold it few years ago - I was too immature for that hobby I think). Finally I decided to make original army. It had to be dark and also I always loved dwarfs so here I go - chaos dwarfs became my target.
For now there’s no pictures but I will update that blog in few days!
Here’s actual list of my army:
1 x Magma Cannon
17 x Ironsworns
23 x Fireglaives
13 x Fireglaives (with full command) (WIP)
17 x IG with shields (with full command) (WIP)
1 x Sorcerer form Russian Alternative (Done)
1 x Sorcerer-Prophet, Sorcerer Deamonsmith, Dark Castellan
77 x Hobgoblins (6 done, 71 WiP)
- (4th Jan) - Showcase - 5 % primary colours, 1st step BSB
- (6th Jan) - 2nd step BSB (Battle Standard is done)
- Next update in week! (
13th Jan deadline Im so sorry but it will take more time than I expected i think I should have painted some of warriors on 20th )
- (12th Mar) Hobgobos wip
- (17th Mar) Sorcerer finished + Fireglaives (Sorcerer’s Bodyguards) wip
-(16th June) Hobgobos WiP (Khan Stribog’s Night Hoods)
Looking forward to seeing those conversions. There ain’t too many FW CD conversions out there. Mostly great weapon conversions and a few blunderbuss conversions i think.
It’ll be interesting to see what you come up with.
Welcome, I too am looking forward to seeing some FW conversions… Its all downhill from here on in. (for the wallet that is)
Like your colors, looks good to far, keep em comin:)
Nice little force - a great way to start. Make sure to complete these guys before adding more stuff to your army.
I made that rule for myself - but still ended up with WIP K’daii, Taurus and Bull Centaurs. … and it’s just dumb.
It’s gonna be a nice BSB you making. Subtle and small conversions make a huge difference i an FW army. Will make your army stand out.
Consider adding some of the pictures to you post. Something to capture the eye when reading. Plus when your G+ album fills up, people have to look for the new stuff.
And in case you don’t know how:
Right click picture in google+ and “copy image url”.
Making a new post, above the text window is an icon of a picture with mountains and a sun (icon 6 from the left).
Insert your image URL in that.
Where are the runes from? Been looking for some.
It’s from FW book, check out your PM inbox
You could paint around the banners runes and markings with a very thin black marker or cd marker. It’s much easier than using a brush and some outlines really make the runes stand out more. A simple and very effective trick.
I like the banner…I have always liked banners with runes…and you have made them nicely balanced out in terms of placement. Some banners get too “busy” sometimes, but yours is a nice eye catcher without too much “bling”.
Very nice work on that banner
Thank you all! Right now I feel very motivated! If I got little time I will paint BS Bearer itself and show you how it looks completed and finished
I think they look very good! The legs are a bit thin though:)
I like the banner, and as proposed you might want to mark out the runes with black lines in chosen places to make 'em stand out more.
The hobgob conversions are good so far. I realize I’ve always preferred GW’s proportions for Dwarfs and Gobbos instead of real life human proportions, since your conversions make me think at first, “their arms are too short”. But then I notice their arms are just the right, realistic length for a creature of that height!
I think now they are better
Like the Hobos!
This message was automatically appended because it was too short.
Those work really well - better than the skavenhobs or the gnobhobs. Looking forward to seeing 40 of them - it gonna be a good unit.
