Chaos Dwarf Big Hat Heroes painted battle-ready+

I followed the same recipe I used for the troops and war machines, but did spend just a little more time on a first layer of highlights, mainly on the skin, the red highlight colour and the Sorcerer’s cloak. They are still far from done, but just that tad closer to tabletop standard to maybe stand out a little from the basic troops.

Thanks! Only two models from the Big Hats to go before CDOffline, albeit big ones.
I would love to also get past -50 on the BATG by then, we’ll see. That Blood Bowl team looks very attractive… :smirk:

Chaos Dwarf Big Hat Lords painted battle-ready+

The Lords and their mounts got the same level of additional work as the Heroes. I’m especially happy with the Lammasu, and it also means my Big Hats are technically finished. I will try to get the bases of the infantry to match the lava style I adopted with the Bull Centaurs, and I want to quickly paint up very basic shields for the Warriors and characters.

Plus I’ve reached not only my primary goal of painting all my Big hats before CDOffline, I also painted 50 models by the end of March, which was my second goal. Only the thrice-cursed Imperium magazine is keeping my from the silver BATG-medal.

Another last minute progress here (this competition runs on UK time, right?) but I managed to paint 9 Squigs.

Another 9 Squigs for my Night Goblin Auxiliaries. Need to undo the Hobgrot-fueled BATG damage…

Yet another end-of-the-month buzzer beater.

12 Squigs for my Squig Herdaz, finally canceling out the Hobgrot purchase - with one model extra to once again climb the silver platform! Eagle-eyed readers may notice Daemonsmith Rosi in the background taking a keen interest in one of the squigs, and the one with the perfect pose for it as well.

But I always wanted to have these two, especially that iconic Boss. Need to rip away all that junk, though. And strip the paint, obviously

And here they are already!
The last 10 Squig Hoppers. I have now painted 100 models, which is not to shabby for me. And I would have gotten away with the gold if it weren’t for those meddling kids…

Painted the first five characters for my Night Goblins. Overall not too much hassle, the Squigs were much more difficult with the pre-shading and the glazing and so on.
