VERY NICE! You've got some FINELY painted minis in GREAT looking setting...having the bases match up so well with the gaming table is a real plus. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

I really enjoy having the bases match with the models and gaming table. It helps bring the game to life. And thank you. Smile

A fine looking bunch they are! Perhaps some individual close-ups could be arranged?

Much as i like your models and don't want to derail your thread, i have to ask:

How did you get that effect on your game table?

It is really awesome, and puts my naked chipboard to shame!

It was very simple. They were ceral boxes cut into very small circles, glued on the bases and gaming board and then painted. Undercoat black. And then drybrused Codex grey, Bubonic Brown and Snakebite Leather. Very simple but takes a long time. Worth it though.

The first group was my Witch hunters. This group are old pictures of my Marienburg guys. I have since up graded them with new models. I'll take new pictures when I can. Smile




As for individual close-ups, give me a day of so and I'll post them.

Some VERY NICE stuff there. I especially like the Freelancer & the Beast Hunter; the Ogre conversion is a cool idea. GOOD WORK! thumbsup

He's a possessed. I used a troll's body with orge parts. Smile He's got the mutant powers of a great claw and a 3rd arm. The claw was made out of the bladed gauntlets from the orges.

I love the puerple color for the freelancer. It just suits him.

My new warband. The Merchant Kings. It's another Marienburg warband but with a twist. I have the 5 heros and one swordsman (so he'll eventlually turn into a hero) and the rest of the money spent on hired swords. I also have some new hired swords done as well. Oh and they got a attack momkey from the southlands as well. Smile
Also I was able to print out one of the background pictures form this site.


The warband itself


two heroes


The leader and his monkey...


Young blood


Swordsman


Orge Bodyguard with a double handed weapon



A worlock


Beasthunter


Bounty Hunter...to help get more money for the upkeep of the hired swords


Pit fighter

Troll slayer

You've done a good basic paint job, The next step, should you chose to move on, would be to add some depth of color: i.e., washes for shading & highlighting. Tom has a nice little tutorial in that might be useful to you.: http://boringmordheimforum.forumieren.com/t626-tutorial-tom-s-basic-painting-tutorial . What a Face

There was a bit of learning curve with the last batch of GW washes, I haven't used the 'new' stuff. But once you start applying them, washes are a quick and dirty way of improving a mini's appearance. thumbsup
