And here's my finished Screaming Bell:
I really like it !
Thanks! I think that it'll give me the motivation I need to start churning through all of those hordes of rats!
No it won't, nothing gives you motivation to paint hundreds of rats
This seems to be an uncharacteristic response from you.
@Chicken Lips : Nice job on the Screaming Bell. Another beauty!
Even I dread the thought of painting hundreds of rats.
The journey of a thousand rats, begins with one paw...
So even you are not without your(painting) limits. I'd bet that @Lord-Marcus could churn out a couple hundred rats in a month or two.
Are we talking clanrats or stormvermin? If so, old stormies or new? Or plague monks? Classify for me
You'll have to ask @Crowsfoot or @Chicken Lips
Here's an army shot of what I got:
The Screaming Bell is now done, as are the Rat Swarms, Rat Ogres and a few characters. I was thinking of taking on one of those blocks of Clanrats/Slaves or the big block of Plague Monks first. Get my paws wet on those guys.
I also took some better pics of my Wood Elf BSB that I finished recently.
That banner is really cool.
I got started working on my 22 Empire Knights Panther this weekend! I'm gonna take my time with these guys, as I want to get them done right, but still try to make good progress on them.
The way you painted that (amazingly detailed) skaven contraption is astounding, but this guy is what really drew my eye:
Your work on that banner, simply stunning! I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to make all those tiny pink leaves.
Well done good sir.
Not very difficult at all really. Took me maybe a minute or two. I just used three GW paints, Ratkin Flesh, Warlock Purple, and Screamer Pink - in that order, and simply "dotted" them on in the basic shape of a tree. I drew them off to the side the banner trailed off in, to indicate that they were blowing away in the wind. Kind of a symbolic thing since the banner would be moving and flapping in the wind too.
Glad you like him though!
In other news; I made some more progress over the weekend on my Knights Panther. Not as much as I'd hoped, but we had a lot to do (car seats needed to be adjusted, so when I got out there, I realized just how dirty our van was, so I had to wash and vacuum it, which lead to replacing a few gaskets, which lead to an overall repositioning of the seats so that the kids can't hit each other, which meant taking out and replacing a few of the seats, which made us realize that we really needed a car seat in my truck, which lead to us going to buy a seat and install it, which lead to me taking each of the kids for a one-on-one ride with Daddy in his truck, etc....) over the weekend.
Still, I did manage to get a bit done in my "spare" time. That usually means stepping into my studio for a few minutes while my kids are eating snack or watching an episode of Daniel Tiger. It sill works though!
They need a good bit more work, but getting closer! The striping on the lances took forever.
Excellent! Quite chivalrous. And those knights look great too
... also how did you paint the knight lances? I have seen some Bretonnian painters paint the lance one color, then spiral some tape onto the lance and paint the leftover parts in order to get a "smooth" line.
