I noticed some of these have flaws and i missed a few spots and one of the chaos style's arm broke off. But overall it was a fun experiment with metals and skin tones. Special thanks to my wife for the photos!

Slayer (His Tattoo says "MOM" and his right wrist has a big deformity due to an accident with glue, I mean a hard earned victory)



Chaos Style (Redhammer painted the first one for me as a gift)


Another Angle


Orc Style



Undead Style



Empire Style



Dark Elf Style



Skink Style

They look delapidated and rusted, just as they should. A little more highlighting would make them pop, though, and I don't think it would detract much from their ruggedness! I like the ork style one best - it's a dynamic mini, and the metals turned out great.

Well first of all, you really did a good job in making the gladiators look the way they fight. I mean you can easily tell their fighting-style by their appearance and equipment. Some more shadows and highlights (and a painted base) would'nt hurt them though.

My wife studied Materials engineering and really loved metallurgy so I tried to get information from her for the metals. I wanted the warband's gear to look old and heavily used.

I guess I should pull these from the gallery and put them back into the WIP section. I had totally forgotten about the bases... And I should do a little more highlighting and shadowing of the recesses.

Why bother. Just leave em here for now and put the pics of the finished models here as well. So everybody can easily see how small changes inprove a mini a lot. I'm confident!

PRETTY COOL LOOKING! While you might want to do a bit more with the flesh tones, the metalwork is nicely done. thumbsup
If you decided to move the thread, PM me & I'll do it for you. The Lads are close enough to completion that you could leave them here if you choose.
