Here is a nice link to a gallery of my Middenheimer's "Ulric's Chosen"

They could be better. I began them not long after Mordheim was released and never really finished them. Then I had a can of spray paint rupture and spray over most of these figs. Because it was old and unshaken most of the medium sprayed out and only a little of the pigment hit them. Stripping impossible. They'd been covered in medium which acted as a lacquer. Anything that would strip them would melt them. Yes, I tried simple green. Didn't work.

So the option was to repaint them. I pitched those that were truly ruined and went to work. They aren't fantastic but they work for my games.

I'm still learning to take pictures. I just learned how to adjust the shutter speed to something truly long. Perhaps I'll retake a few of the Models like Nicodemus and others. But this will do for now.

I'm going to start on my Witch Hunters next. Though I will probably work on some dwarves at the same time. I don't think it will take me 10 years to get them done.

Funny, some of these pictures revealed flaws I hadn't seen before. I;ll have to fix a few of them.

Did you use a pin or something to dot the eyes? If you make the dot for the eye large enough to touch the top and bottom of the eye socket I think it makes eyes look more realistic. On a lot of models you can just leave the eyes darkly shaded and they'll look fine.

I guess they are Middenheimers so maybe you want them to have a crazed, wild-man look to them.

I dig the crossbowman's fuchsia hood Very Happy

I really like the first model with the halberd, also the wench. Great work all around. Try using a little black wash on parts of the metal and leave some shiny for glaring effects.

Good job!

I should tag the pictures.
Guy with the hood is my Tilean Marksman.

I used a VERY tiny brush for the eyes and yes they look wild and crazy. Not sure I like it. They aren't dull coated yet because I won't use that stuff inside an its only recently gotten warm. SO I can probably fix the eyes.

The metal is washed rather heavily, the pictures just don't show it. It's my less than stellar camera work. I've read using something to help the ink adhere to the fig will help with wash. I may yet try that too.

I think I read that you can add a little detergent to break up surface tension and cause inks to slide into recesses more dramatically, or add gloss varnish (I think) to do the opposite. I think adding varnish might be what you're speaking of but I may in fact be completely wrong!

All I know is that citadel washes stink something fierce.

I like the back-to basics models. A lot of players nowadays, myself included, tend to use overly dramatic models making a Mordheim battlefield more look like a scene from some gawd-aweful anime festival than the real gritty mercenary battlefield it is inteded to be.

Also, is that wolf a wolf or one of the old Dire Wolves (that doesnt look the least "dire" Smile )

Its a wolf model. I have the old metal dire wolf that isn't very dire. Could be an old plastic dire wolf not sure.
