Hi guys ...

I finally got some new batteries - just its just a darned shame that my camera operating skill isnt really up to bringing you better pics ...but hopefully the pics are atleast adaquite to give a general appriciation the sorry state of my painting ...ok well hopefully its not entirely awful though ofcause some of you guys are in a very different league than a happy-go-lucky amateur like me clown ......

My Dwarven Noble

My very first figure ...and a result Im quite happy with...

A warrior - at the moment doing duty as a Clansman...

My very last paintjob ...also a result Im quite ok with ...

My 3 slayer figures....



Notice the yellow ...and blue stripes in the hair ...


Currently doing his tour of duty ...as a 'lad's got talent' henchman named Ulli Ultenbrann

This is the model that Im the least happy about ...I started out by having his beard in a different color and it just looked ...well wrong ...so I painted it over ...and it just looks awful ...

The last of the bunch ...currently employed as Beardlings...

Cool to have your warband now uploaded as well!

I think the pictures are good, at least I couldn't take better ones.

What about the bases? What are you going to do with them?

Hi Boehm!

Great! Thanks for posting!

First off, your miniatures are REALLY good for someone who has just started painting. My first minis were a lot worse (and I mean A LOT!). Your painting is neat, you have a good choice of colours, you did some shading... I have nothing to criticise. Smile

Secondly, good pictures. You might want to activate the "macro" mode (sybol is usually a "flower", at least on SONY cameras) to get even sharper close-up pics.

And lastly, i must agree with Erk. The only thing I would criticise on your minis is the lack of a base texture. You should really do something about that, and if it's only gravel.

Thanks for sharing Boehm, and keep us posted!

Cheers!
Tom

@ Tom ...thanks !

Regarding photos - I already have the macro-symbol activated.

Regarding bases - you are probably right ...I will look into buying some gravel or something next time im near the store that sells GW stuff ...- In the beginning, before I knew if I could really get into painting, I just decided to try to limit my expenses a bit ...

You could simply put some sand on the bases, the easiest way, put quite effectif(and cheap).
Then paint the sand in brown, a little bit drybrushing and that's it Wink

Nice paintjob, really!
For the base, I recommand using 5 thin cardboard tiles, arranged in a random and roughly square way to give a mordheimish look (a.k.a ruined city). You can replace these thin cardboard tiles by pop-sickle sticks, cutted in small tiles - that's what I use. It looks awesome IMO.

Thanks for the tips folks ...I think I will try to do a "test base" ...with the tiles and see how I like it ! - that way if it works to my satisfaction then I dont have to buy any more stuff Cool

Anyway since Im trying to paint a bit again ...to get my band ready for our MEETUP ...I decided I needed a warlock figure ...loath to spend unnecessary money, I decided to try my hand at a simple (my very first) conversion ...of a (old) chaos marauder with a banner ....into a WARLOCK ...*tada*





(dammit cant seem to take good pictures today ...both the focus and the light doesnt want to get right ...oh well )

PS: notice I did basing Wink

Hail Boehm,
Nice Looking Minis! thumbsup

The Slayers with the multicolor hair are Cool, very Snorri Nosebiterish, as my Favorite character from the Gotrek & Felix series, this is a PLUS. G.W. makes some of the BEST Dwarves & you've picked out some the Best of the Best. The one eyed pistolier in particular is Very Cool & VERY NICELY PAINTED. I LOVE painting Dwarves [don't tell my Night Goblins Suspect ]!

The Marauder Shaman conversion is Great; goes nicely with your Vertically Challenged War Band. I have a few of those guys, excellent minis. SO...WELL DONE!
