[Archive] To the Honor of Hashut - Army Blog 07.16.15 Question to all readers

DAGabriel:



As banal as it may seem, the wish to start this army began with the new pics on the WarhammerForge site and was fueled by the Tamurkhan book. And i wanted to make an army nobody near me is playing.

I started with collecting infos, pics and fluff connected with the Chaos Dwarfs and with joining this forum.

Regarding models i started with ordering the Games Day Hellsmith, a Hellcannon, InfernalGuard and the three new heroes. In addition i traded some dozen Hobgoblins and some Big Hats.

Now i am sitting in front of a pile of minis and slowly i prepare to paint them - and to present them to you.

At first it will be more of a collection than a functioning army but in time i hope it will grow.

The Tower of Zarr Dareis

Zarr Dareis is a big mining town dedicated to Hashut by the Chaos Dwarfs about 120 years ago. It is neither the biggest nor the wealthiest mining town, but its mines produce a rare ore coveted and needed in the dark rituals used to bind daemonic essence into the war machines of the Dawi Zarr.

Zarr Dareis is dominated by the horned Tower overlooking the tents of the slaves and the houses of its inhabitants. This Tower is the home of Htharikk Darkheart, Sorceror-Prophet and cruel master of Zarr Dareis.



Since Zarr Dareis is often the aim of Orc raiders it houses a strong detachment of Infernal Guard as well as some hobgoblin slave troops. These can be reinforced by the war machines constantly built in the deep halls of the tower.

To keep up the high output of war machines, the Dawi Zarr need a constant inflow of new slaves.

These are bought or acquired on slave hunts. The Dawi Zarr take any race for slaves but only hobgoblins get a chance to escape the neverending toils and make

an (usually very short) career in the army.

Ambassadors from foreign realms:

Blue in VT



Kera`s female Bighat

warh:

That is actually a very smart blog layout. Looking forward to see your progress!

Borador:

Nice blog layour, very keen.

Eager to see your models painted!

Ravenswood:

2DAgabriel Nice blog layout. Did you already choose the color scheme?

DAGabriel:

Not really, as written i am back to painting school right now.

My first test was shading and my teachers said “no color, only black and white painting!”, so here is my first try.

You may smile, but it is harder than it sounds!

Bassman:

Interesting! You could save this technique for sorcerers turned into stone!

Borador:

Shading is rather good! Quite subtle, which is nice.

Like Bassman said, good technique for sorcerers that have turned to stone.

cornixt:

Looks like a good way to lay out an army blog, keeps all the finished stuff at the beginning and leaves the comments from people at the end. Looks forward to seeing in progress.

Ravenswood:

Looks good!

This message was automatically appended because it was too short.

Nicodemus:

Excellent idea! I’ve been thinking for the past year that I wish the first page of my blog was better laid out. Guess I could still make some major edits to my first posting with pointers to things… but this is much better!

~N

Abecedar:

way to go, an interesting and original start and another member who has beaten me of the starting (blog) blocks.

DAGabriel:

I have to confess that the concept is not my idea. A big german forum expects this structure for it`s army blogs and since i will also post there it is easier for me to use it here, too.

15:40 Here the verdict to the black and white hobgoblin:

"Not bad but not best.

Try to get another one, but this time create “dramatic” shadows in place of soft ones you got,

especially on the face try to get all the details.  

- similary as you would do on 2D painting - but on 3d.

Besides try to watch over details like fingers , tooths - try to make them look good and stand out - only by those monochrome colors.

^-^ - not easy but if you got this right all later painting with colors will be easy as you will already know how to create shadows/light and make things “pop” out of sculpt."

So i prepared and primed the next one. Watch out!

Ravenswood:

Heh, I stay wait for your next work :slight_smile: I also found some hobs and will be paint one of them soon.
