Well, after a lot of time spent renovating the house, I'm back at the painting desk. Finally finished my (first ever!) Warband!

introducing: Gorgoth's Restless

First off we have the heroes (I like to think of them more as villains) and the muscle



Gorgoth the Brayer is the leader. He's packing a dagger, a doublehanded weapon and light armour



Bleat the Gifted is his righthand man... er... beast. A shaman with dagger and battle axe and vision of torment



Hornor the Massive is the minotaur hired as bodyguard for the pair. Armed with dagger and sword.



Rounding out the ranks are two ungors armed with daggers, shields and mace, one with a shield, spear and mace and 2 viscious chaos hounds.





Now I'm working on an adventurer warband that consists of four familiar heroes


And four archers as henchmen.


The three remaining archers are soaking in ovenspray right now in an attempt to strip off the horrible paint job the previous owner gave them...

Hope you enjoy my mini's.

Nice looking Beastmen! I had all of those models for my old Beastman army back in Warhammer 5th edition days. I still use the ungors for my rarely appearing Beastman warband.

CONGRATULATIONS on completing your first War Band....GREAT feeling ain't it! The Beasty Boys turned out VERY NICELY, as did their Heroic adversaries. GOOD WORK! thumbsup

First of all, let me join DeafNala in congratulating you on your warband(s). I could see that a lot of love was poured in the painting of these well-chosen minis.

From what I could see, you're off to a pretty good start. Let me assure you that if you keep at it, the quality of your paintjob would only improve overtime. If I may offer some constructive comments, you may want to create some depth to your paints though by making shadows and highlights so that the details of the sculpts of these gorgeous minis would be better defined and accentuated.

Great job nonetheless!

Thanks for the praise all.

@Dreng Tromm
my crap camera somehow made it invisible, but I tried creating some depth in painting by using several washes. The barbarian for instance is much more shaded IRL than the pink blob he is on picture.
I try to avoid highlights, as I find them to make the models seem more unrealistic and more cartoonlike... At least the way they tried making me use them in the local GW, where they all seem to paint their minis in a miasma of sickening flashy colors. Ugh!

Either way: thanks for the advice, maybe I'll try highlighting again on the archers I'm working on now.

Cameras are contrary creatures; i.e., the cheap ones lose the finer points of the paint jobs, & the expensive ones find all the faults. Suspect

" ...the cheap ones lose the finer points of the paint jobs, & the expensive ones find all the faults." - this description may very well describe most of my relationships! Laughing
