PostSubject: Bard elf and skaven clan pestilens   Wed 27 Apr 2011 - 4:35

Hi,this is a model for a friend, it'll be a bard...and...elf. My dwarven blood has some problems with it but...i focus on reward and go on.



This is a conversion made following a suggestion from a friend. I have some skull pass goblins...and i need some pestilens rats...so why don't save money and have some fun with them?
Here's test model...

As usual, very inventive! Good idea to use a dark eldar body for the bard. What further alterations are you planning? Any gadgets you will add? I guess I'll know soon enough, just curious!

The night goblin to skaven transformation looks promising, and IMO a fitting size for these ratmen - skaven has always seemed a bit too big and strong to me.

Thanks! The elf will have a fiddle (i'm sculpting it), a couple of knives and a couple of masks...He asked me a model useful both for mordheim and D&D...^_^'

After reading Skavenslayer i desired a skaven army to be used against my dwarves...a friend is painting for me a couple of island of blood skaven "armies" and i'm preparing slaves, pestilens monks...and a scratchbuilding a doomwheel...this is my first test for plague monks and hope it looks emaciated enough.

Great work on the bard! Is he supposed to be a Dark Elf Bard? I really like the armour, but it looks a little evil Smile Please take some close-ups of his instrument!

Thanks! ^_^ Unluckly it should be a "good" elf but i had the same impression: my friend asked me to add that armour and my bad choice for face gave him an evil touch. Crying or Very sad
Tomorrow i'll have time to take some other pics...maybe to show progresses.

From a Goblin's perspective all Elves are EVIL...not to mention arrogant & kinky: SO your Bard is right on the money. Suspect
I love where you're going with the Skaven. I've been trying to figure what to do with my own Skull Pass minis. As always VERY CREATIVE WORK! thumbsup

The pic doesn't really show much of the skaven, so I'll comment on the elf, who is great. It is the armour, not the face, who gives the DE-impression imo. You are a real craftsman with the GS-work. Only thing that seems strange to me is the pose, or more accurately the stance. I don't know what the mini is actually doing. I thought he is singing and just about to start playing his instrument, but the legs say he is walking, which seems strange to me. I'd expect him to be standing.

Thanks to all ^_^

@Grimscull:He has that stance because my friend told me that in a D&D session his elf was singing and playing his fiddle while running across a battlefield What a Face so i decided to give it that pose. i'm sorry...my fault...i had to explain it! Wink The armour was an explicit request...but i agree it seems dark-elvish.

@DeafNala:from a dwarf's perspective all elves are oathbreakers' meat for our axes. 15th of may i'll see a friend who's painting my skaven (due to my lack of time and will) and i'll have to finish the plague monks to give him those models.

Okay, if that singing/fiddling/running look is intentional, then it really turned out nice!

FANTASTIC! The Evil Elf looks like he's dancing to his own tune. Your friend has to take photos of the finished piece...or else. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

My words! I'd like to see some pics once they are finished. If you have lots of old clanrats, these plague monks will match better with them than the new ones.

Here's first step of a unit filler...next week i'll make better pics...i hope it'll create some sort of suspence Laughing



The little one is as old as my first steps with warhammer minis...and it's there only for scale purpose^_^'
I have to thank a friend that sunday made me a really big gift...unused skaven bits. With this material i'll be able to make the whole unit (at least 21 models) with 0€ (except for green stuff and glue).

Have a nice weekend!
