+1 good job!
Nice 6th ed? army
i would love to be able to present some more photos of the ogres but.. unfortunately both forums where i had them seem to have vanished so.. no way for me to get them back.. i will try to keep updating some more about the carnosaur project as i go , was out for last couple days so no painting was able to be done
i did fine a more detailed photo of one of the mournfangs without the rider so i will leave it in here
lastly i did had saved a closeup of the little conversion on the back of the mournfang of the gnoblar itself.. those eyes.,.. i laugh till this day thinking on that poor little fella holding on for his life with his mouth hah
Have a great day everyone !
Nice work, looks like a giant polar bear
Hello again everyone ,
after about... 20hour'ish total work into it..(yes i'm slow! i haz excuse! 5 years without picking up a paint brush ... fine.. i know is no excuse! still! )
here is the about 99.99% complete carnosaur itself without the old one and the throne... (those are going to take 20 more hours ahahah )
First of all the 2 sides far pics (I'm sorry i don't have better lighting atm, its about 3:37 am and just finished this and decided to share it with u guys right away! )
And the other side
Now , Some Closeups so i can try and show a bit better the gradient on the model .. rough with this light! haha
And that's what i could do for now..
I must admit.. after 5 years without touching a paint brush .. i was preety nervous starting out again with such a beautifull model , because i didn't wan't to ruin it , thankfully (atleast for me) i think i managed to pull through something decent.
Hope you guys like it , and feel free to comment what u think , i allways love to see all the comments you leave!
PS: that base was just for ease to paint , it will have a nice preety base once the complete model is painted i promise !
Have a Great day//night everyone!
See you soon!
Getting better and better.
I think i might have a small problem...
I might be getting addicted to tufts , just going to leave a small preview of the work in progress of the army re-basing, hope you enjoy!
Those are some (expensive) good-looking bases! The Carnosaur looks good too!
Hehe thank you ,
Im lucky enough to work for GamersGrass.
The company that makes the tufts in the bases ,and, it was a gift from them the chance to use the tufts and redo all my bases.
Nice! (Sooooo....you're saying that you can hook me up......? )
Errrrm... no , but, you can always check the website and get some ahahah
That Carny looks great, very clean painting so far and those bases look brilliant.
Well then .. The Saurus seem to have smelled new bases with lots of tufts .. so they are slowly moving in to the new terrain and they seem to be loving it !
In the next photo you can see 10 of them in the new habitat ... shhh don't make much noise ! we don't wanna scare them away!
On a more serious note though ...
im loving how they look in them hope you like it too , im sorry about the lighting quality i need to get some more lights to take pictures.
But for now this is all i can do, atleast you can get an idea on how they look in the bases
On the carnosaur part , ive done some work on the throne of the old one , washes have been applied and highlight will start tomorow if all goes well!
that's all for today folks ! have a great time and good painting !
I like the blue at the top!
Well then , the throne is preety much done!
Might add some smaller details but i am pleased with how it came out!
That was all i was able to get done today but still is some progress! Hehe, have a great time everyone!
That looks awesome. Love the colors. I might suggest just painting the row of lower triangles a different color, probably darker in shade, to make that detail of the blue triangles pop more. I really think you'll love the result!
Rough week this one , not much time at hands.. hence not many posts .
Well.. what have i been up to hobby wyse? My terradons were a complete mess since i got them.. they came painted but since they are metal the paint was bad.. and i don't know what paint the guy used but.. let me say.. that wasnt citadel paints ! ahah it took me quite a few hours to take the most i could out and i ended up with this..
Yeah... i realized next it wasnt a good idea ! why you ask? well then .. some days passed and.. i tought..."Let me get glueing these back again" i open the box again and i am like...."aww... shh.... how will i find wich fits wich now???"
As you might tell there are 2 saurus heads there .. and why?? well when i got them. the dude threw in 2 bodies that had no head .. and i tought i would try it... well.. it actualy fit better than the terradons heads themselves! LOL
Yeah.. that was a good fun 4 hours trying every single piece to see wich fit better in each body ! ahaha , i laugh now but back then i was almost crying! XD
The result of those 4 hours was this..
Some days after i assembled them.. i was looking at those gaps in the wings and pannic was in place! "I never used GS how the hell am i going to do this!"
"Am i going to be able to do it? only one way to find out.. buy GS and get your hands at it."
Today was that day i mixed some GS and did my best to fill those cannyons between the wings and the bodies and ended up with this.. migh not be the best but hey.. better than all those gaps! one day ill learn how to scuplt!
Lastly a closeup of that body with the saurus head .. i think it looks alright , what about you guys?
Thats all for today, ill work on the Carnosaur Rider soon , gotta start painting him to see if i can get that carno done and assembled in one piece!
Have a great week and sorry for the long post, but i like to try and get the experiences i go through , pass to you guys ! haha hope you enjoy them too !
See ya Soon!
Still trying to decide the colors for the old one , but tought about what Chicken was talking on the throne and decided to try something similar to what he sugested and i am quite pleased with the result! ty !
I Went and painted all the lighter color triangles one by one with icy blue and realy liked the result, its preety much 100% done for me now! ehe
