The Outrider with the Lantern is by far my favorite conversion, but they're all excellent looking. Great job! :3

Thanks everyone.

I do in fact use the outrider warband from the nemesis crown. A few choices early on with skills allow me to theme the warband slightly more witchhunter esque, such as a cavalry hammer and the appropriate skill for the "warrior priest" and the skills for crossbow use for one of the witchhunters.

The Lantern bearer is my favorite too Smile

Well, I worked on my witchhunters for the first time in months yesterday, but, unfortunately, I still didn't finish anything worth posting pictures of. I swear I'll wrap up the last three...someday. Anyways, in the meantime I shot some pictures of my Wood Elf test piece. The model could easily double for an elven ranger for Mordheim so I'll post them up for you to see.

VERY NICE! Your choice of muted shades is VERY in keeping with the character of the Way Watchers. EXCELLENT JOB!

Thanks Deafnala. Over the years I've realized that some of the painters I admire most in the magazines use a very muted palette for their work. I've been trying to emulate that darker palette myself. This is probably the closest I've gotten to achieving that look so far, so I'm glad you like it!

Finished (almost) another two witchhunters. You might notice that the second guy's head is still only attached by bluetac but pay no heed! One more and then I'll call it quits on these guys.

Deafnala: Painting, er yeah, someday I'm sure

Hero: The first witch hunter is from the empre free company. He's the guy on the far left in the second rank with the stupid looking skull cap and the penicl mustache. I cut off the top of his head and made his moustache in to a full goatee:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat50004&prodId=prod20048
The second head is from the imperial guard cadian command sprue. It's the guy with the slicked back hair. He makes a perfect witch hunter! Second down on the right:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?categoryId=400032&pIndex=1&aId=13900001&start=2

Kurgan: Many thanks!

Fungo: I actually cheated with the buckles and made a stamp of a buckle on a grail pilgrim. This is the easiest way to get little things like that done quickly. Take some green stuff, coat whatever you want the stamp of in lots of water, or maybe a bit of vaseline, and press it in to the green stuff. Let the green stuff harden and then you have a mini mold. They tend to be imperfect, but it gives the basic forum which you can then correct with a little pushing around by your sculpting tool.

Damn boy, you're making me feel bad that I haven't finished those possessed yet...

What ever, my amazons are fully painted now, and so are most of my Pirates.

We need to throwdown this break.

I happened upon two groups of random people I've never seen at my LGS before playing Modhreim in the last week, so I found it necessary to start the modeling back up! Been working on a certain big scary monster, but since it's not finished, i'll post a little teaser pic, to wet the appetite for those who are interested. The sewers are overflowing with vermin!

Thanks Smile I use Aves Apoxy Sculpt for the bases. It's much cheaper than green stuff and easier to work with for most things. Cons are that it's less sticky (sometimes a pro too, I guess) and it can get damaged easier than green stuff.

Great job on wood elf, witch hunters & monster base!
Nice to see something painted by you. The elf looks great (and I'm not a big fan of the elves, so it must be really great work Razz )

Skavenblight: I'm glad you like the elf. I took a day and an age to paint that darn thing. Idealy I would paint many more, and some day my wood elf army wouldn't be grey...but somehow I'm not sure I see that hapening.

Asp: Some day...some day Smile

All right, no painted miniature today, but my plan is to do some painting this week and try to get at least one model finished. Instead, a picture of my first completed Witchhunter. The other four heroes are slowly taking shape as well, but this guy required the least amount of greenstuff work so he got finished first:

Nice GS skills, that first picture has so much character. I have always loved the Witch Hunters, this really makes me want to grab, convert and paint up some!
