Nice one's! How do you plan to paint the girl? One option could be like an etheral of some sort? But if you want to stay true to the original maybe a wash in dark gray and then higlights could work? Anyway looking forward to see more of your awesome stuff:)

Christian, my goal is to have Helena painted up exactly like the picture I shared near the end of the previous page. To me its paramount that she'll be recognizable to anyone who might be familiar with the character. The problem is that I really don't know how to paint like that... I think it's going to have to be a trial & error episode of fantastic proportions. Shocked

And DeafNala, that was my thinking also, along with the idea that if the rest of warband is already done then I won't feel as stressed about getting the vampire finished. And another good thing is that in her white-primed state she's really not that far off from looking like how I want her to, so it kind of gets the point across already. Razz

Anyway, I've been tipped off about some software to use for enhancing my images. I'll be looking into that and might be swapping out my old pictures with some better ones if I can make it work.

I'm sorry for the double post but I've gone back and replaced the images in my last update with some new and better ones. Smile

The new photos show the Mostly Dead Guys off WONDERFULLY! GREAT WORK!   thumbsup


By the way, you don't have to post images using the spoiler. AND posting photos is better than supplying links.   What a Face

Oh sorry, I just like the spoilers as a way of keeping things neat. If they're a bother then I will remove them.

And I've been using the forum's own image hosting. Don't they show up as proper images to you?

They aren't a problem at all. I just wasn't sure if you knew that you don't have to use them within your own thread if you don't want to. Since you like to use the spoilers, there is no reason why you shouldn't continue with the practice...it is your thread after all.   What a Face

Like I said last time, this past week would not be very good for painting. Consequently I only have a single new model to show you today. It's another dreg, and here he is.









I've noted some smaller mistakes that I'll go back and take care of but on the whole I like how he came out.

I also took the brush to the earlier completed ghouls and drybrushed them across the face to pick them out a little bit more.



I still haven't received any basing material yet which bothers me, since a miniature never really looks finished until they're on a decent base. I really hope I'll get it home during the next week.

OH WOW, Luthor has returned...this time as Gnarles. He did paint up SPLENDIDLY. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup
I can identify with the dearth of scenic stuff dilemma. I start by basing to mini; ergo, no scenic stuff = no mini work. I home you get home also...there's no place like home.   clown

It is time for another update!

I've only got a single new miniature ready during the week. It's a necromancer.









But aside from him I also grew tired of not receiving the basing material that I had ordered, so I went ahead and made my own!

Here's a couple of shots from above where the effect is most visible. It is supposed to be a kind of cobblestone.







I'm pretty happy with it myself, and it certainly looks tons better than a blank base. This is also, probably, the first time I've ever gone with bases that weren't black on the sides!

Here are some pictures of the previously done miniatures on the new bases. I didn't really get the cobblestones even across the bases but I figured that since this is supposed to be Mordheim there's probably been an earthquake or two that could explain the disorder. Smile















And lastly, here are a couple of pictures of Helena with her new crew. Yes, she's unfortunately still not painted...





The nametag on her makeshift base has broken off. I really need to find her a new base that's more durable but still low enough that it retains her relative smallness to the other miniatures.

The new Necromancer AND the new bases look WONDERFUL. Crafting my own bases is one of the most pleasurable parts of the craft...I hope you enjoyed as much. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

Ahh, even more classics, the mordheim necromancer is a must, and the copplestones you sculpted look great!

Thanks, guys. Smile

And Floedebolle, have I got a bag of goodies in store for you... stay tuned! Wink

Edit: Oh and also, I've changed the name of the thread to "MasterSpark's Undead warband", since the previous title wouldn't show up if I searched for undead, and I figured that'd be a shame.

These are amazing. The depth of colour on the ghouls is fantastic & the bases are really nicely done.

Floedebolle, let's just say that I developed a taste for the good old Mordheim miniatures and subsequently spent some time and resources on ebay. With one of my character traits being "more money than sense" I've made away with some pretty cool things. Cool

Lordlucan, thanks for the kind words. I hope the coming things I put up here will be as good!

Edit: And another thing; my homemade bases lets me keep the tabs underneath the models intact. I feel that's a pretty good thing to take into consideration since these are all OOP miniatures.

Here's a big old smattering of pictures of a new board I'm playing on. The pictures are unfortunately not that well focused but you'll see enough detail to be delighted, I believe.

Edit: And no, it's not mine. Smile

Edit 2: You can click the links below each image to open up a new tab with the full-sized picture.

Hello again.

I'm here with a (rare) mid-week update. I'm experimenting with printing out small name-tags to glue on the bases. Here's a test piece that I'd like to show you. Since they're taken at night I've used some different lightings. I quite like the effect of the tag but I'm a bit concerned that the name itself might be too small. The last two pictures show it from a bit longer distance.

Well, like the idea, but i would print it, wash it, and then take a small sabel brush and write it over with acrylic paint, just to give it the look of a freehand calligraphy, then it looks even better, what you say? Question

Do you mean that I should just take a brush to it and go over the letters with some black paint? That could work to bring out some more clarity.
