PostSubject: Furious Beards of Thrár (Dwarves band)   Fri 8 May 2009 - 6:30

Hello!!! I would like to show you some of my guys of the warband that are finally painted. I would like to improve their paintings so that's the motive of this thread rabbit . All of them are from the Warhammer Fantasy Skull Pass. Also, i'm working on some other plastic dwarves, i'm using actual thunderers, but it's not very developed for the moment.

Also I have to say sorry because of my pics Mad, there I go:

charge!


did I say... charge!?


a Warrior (called friendly: "scary face")



the thunderer (actually he's a hero, i'll use some new model for him I think)



My favourite warrior



My awful warrior

(sorry, no back pic!)

Old Engineer O'Clock (old paintings)



the naked slayer (the dwarve I've ever painted!)



and finally, the leader and noble: Thrár the Unforgetable


(I must say I hate the cape, because of a crappy dark red color I used... I'll repair it in the future, I suppose).

Also my new models all will have the exact equipment (weapons and armor) they're wearing into battles... so it's a bit of work and conversions!
So finally: what to do with these guys to make them cooler? Smile

Very impressive paintjobs! 'Specially since their BFSP, I found that they're really hard to paint satisfactorly.

VERY NICE STUFF! Don't be too hard on yourself; your minis ARE far superior to the standard "war games" level of painting, AND you achieved this with less than state of the art minis, an accomplishment in & of itself thumbsup . A better flow of colors will develop as you go along; it's a matter of developing a "feel" for the beasty. Keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup

I honestly like your cape it gives it more depth and feeling, i look back at my old cloaks and there just a standard color...

and good work on the rest of the models...

and painting only gets better with time Very Happy keep up the good work!!

Well, as people already have pointed out, these models have been nicely painted. I myself have painted my way through BFSP, and they're not exactly rewarding minis...

I think they have a nice gritty feel to them that all dwarves should have!

Some advice:
The skin would look nicer IMHO with a wash, perhaps flesh wash or smoke ink.
Experiment with blending your colours (especially the cloak on your leader would benefit from this)!
And finally, regarding warband construction; consider making a couple of models without armour. Armour is expensive, and Dwarf T4 and Hard to kill makes an all armoured warband not at all necessary in the beginning.

All in all I think this looks like a promising beginning indeed for a dwarven warband!

Thanks for all!!!

As I said, i'm working in models with different equipment (and also no armor and shield).
I'll try to get better skins and also to make cooler the capes you'll see in the future.

I'm still open to more ideas, an good criticism cheers

Ok as a lover of all things Dwarfy beards,guns,grudges,(I still hold a grudge against a guy who kept outside too long in the winter,for so long in fact I allmost got frost bite!,and that was 4 years ago!)axes,hammers etc,so I feel I must offer some C&CC.

Comments:
Ok so I love your Dwarf Noble and the cannon Engigneer as the two are my favrat modles in the BFSP set and well done on your painting skills by the way thumbsup

Constructive Critisium:
Ok on a sad note I do no't like the fact you have no't green stuffed them namely there there staches they need too be longer,we should no't be seeing red and green piant (unless the green is unpainted green stuff?) on the weapon hafts,you should have added long gray streks of hair in the Engineer's beard as he is starting too get in the Longbeard phase (old age) of his life and you have should have used lots of the Dwarf Flesh piant by GW for your skin if you do all this you will fall deeper in too my good grases.

Oh P.S your Dragon Slayer's crest and beard rock! how you doo it? hope too see more! thumbsup Smile

Well the Slayer's beard and hair has no secret!!

Simply i started painting with some middle brown, and i started with 2 o 3 shades with orange-brown. finally with brown,
Lastest lights are done with some middle yellow (in many water)

and that's it. It's a old painting, so today i could do it better... but the idea i think was good.

Thank you, i'll try to paint some new stuff or take pics of my wips soon Wink
