It does look good as is, but floedebolle's suggestion would make it even better....depending on how you feel about it.   What a Face

Well , almost. Pure black seems to hard, take a brownish black instead, softens the contrast, but give the paper a little brownish wash before. and just outline the letters, dont need to paint them full, that should do the trick.

I'll give it a shot. It's just a test piece, after all. Thanks! Smile

It's time for an update!

I've done 2 more zombies this week. It's the Marienburger and witch hunter ones.

Time for this week's update!

I'm getting to grips with a new camera so the pictures don't look like they usually do, yet. I haven't made much progress since last time. Only 2 new models, another zombie and a sixth ghoul.


https://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/17/76/48/91/ghoul113.jpg


https://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/17/76/48/91/ghoul213.jpg

https://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/17/76/48/91/zombie24.jpg

As you saw above I've come up with a slightly new way of displaying the names. Floedebolle, I tried your suggestion with adding some thin lines of paint to bring out the text but I couldn't get it to look like I wanted it to. Right now I've simply scaled up my first method and given it a yellow/brown wash instead of a black one, so to not cover the letters with grime. I like the effect and think it looks good but I wonder if I should do anything about the perfectly square corners. Perhaps take a tool to them and rough them up a bit?


https://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/17/76/48/91/names110.jpg

https://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/17/76/48/91/names610.jpg

I have made a list of models I want to get done before I allow myself to disappear into the deep, dark and frightening task of getting Helena painted. The list is the following:

1 necromancer (1 done)
3 dregs + 1 mounted dreg (2 done)
6 ghouls (6 done)
6 zombies (4 done)
2 dire wolves (0 done)
2 hired swords (0 done)

Looking at the list I have 8 models to go. I will try to accelerate my pace and get 4 models finished per week from here on, so I can get started on Helena as soon as possible.

If I recall correctly you were looking for possible minis for a mounted Dreg. Well I was reminded of the Grenadier/Mirliton mounted Ghouls/Zombies:

It's updating day!

...except I don't have anything new to actually show you. I decided to cut the cr*p and get started on painting Helena, which means actually painting with a real palette of colours. This week has been rather busy so I haven't spent much time on it yet but yesterday I learned how to make a wet palette and how to properly thin and mix multiple colours together. It's working really well but I still expect this project to take a long time before I get it the way I want it. I might share some WIP pictures when I feel I've gotten that far. Stay tuned. Smile

@Deafnala, thanks for the tip but I already have a mounted dreg model lined up for use. If I decide to get the entire crew on horses at one point mirliton's stuff might be on the list.

Hello again,

I have a small update to share with you today. In between me learning to paint for real I decided to get a third dreg done, and here he is: Gynt, the dishonored. I decided to use the classic freelancer model as a dreg since I wanted one with a more human touch to him. I also have the same model on a horse to use as a mounted dreg.

https://i19.servimg.com/u/f19/17/76/48/91/dreg410.jpg

And then, purely for fun, I also found myself an opulent coach. Smile


https://i19.servimg.com/u/f19/17/76/48/91/coach110.jpg


https://i19.servimg.com/u/f19/17/76/48/91/coach210.jpg

https://i19.servimg.com/u/f19/17/76/48/91/coach410.jpg

The coach will require work before it can be considered ready but I don't expect to have the gc to actually buy it in a campaign for quite some time. king

Gynt's back story makes for an interesting Dreg. The Free Lancer looks GREAT; the shield, however, doesn't look finished. Are you planning on adding some color to it?
Of all the War Band Leaders, the Vampires in general & Helena in particular are the ones I could see riding around in an Opulent Coach...SPLENDID idea & the coach looks positively regal. AND Helena looks WONDERFUL on her base.  thumbsup

Thanks for the comments! I'm glad you also like the coach, I'm really happy with how it looks. Smile

@DeafNala, I thought about doing something else with the shield but I'm satisfied with it the way it is now. The details around the bull's head is clearly defined and the nailed fish makes it pop enough. Any more contrast and I think it'll detract from that dilapidated Mordheim look.

Helena's base is currently just provisional but it's the style I'll be going with once I get the entire model completed. The end result is going to be neater.

@Grimscull, it's a scale reproduction of queen Elizabeth's coronation coach used in 1953. You can find them on eBay, the exact designation of it is "Crescent Coronation Coach 1303" released in 1977. It can also go by the name State Coach and was made in several sizes, so make sure to contact the seller and ask them about the dimensions if you're about to buy one.

Edit: And it's made of metal so it has that nice weight to it. You know, before I got into Mordheim I was rather against using metal miniatures in my Warhammer army but now that I've come down to the skirmish level I've turned around completely. My warband is 100% metal and I love it. cheers

I've no real updates to give you this week but work is continuing behind the scenes. Next weekend we'll be starting a new campaign so I'll be posting warband photos and hopefully some terrain/in-game pictures as well. Smile

Hi fellows,

There haven't been much activity in this plog as of late, so here I am to give you some WIP pictures of an ongoing modelling adventure. I've recruited a friend of mine who is much better than me at both painting and modelling and he's helping me with making some changes to my model for Helena.

The changes include removing the arms and slimming down the shoulder portion of the torso a bit more narrow, and then also giving her new arms of more appropriate length and with poofy shoulders since that's a feature of the original inspiration source. She's also got new hands and feet that are in proportion to the model as a whole and we've scraped away and filled in a lot of the strange details that were originally on the dress. On the whole I think she's shaping up very well and I need to make sure that I'm ready to give her the best paint job I can muster once the miniature is ready to go.

It's been quite a long time since I last updated this painting log. Progress has been slow but there are some new things to show. Here are a couple of group shots to let you see.

The ghouls

https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/17/76/48/91/ghouls10.jpg

The zombies

https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/17/76/48/91/zombie11.jpg

The wolves

https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/17/76/48/91/wolves10.jpg

The heroes

https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/17/76/48/91/heroes10.jpg

And everyone together. Or most of them.

https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/17/76/48/91/group10.jpg

And lastly a picture showing that both Helena and her coach are still very much WIP.

https://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/17/76/48/91/coach10.jpg

I've ordered some parts to make a limber and horse team for the carriage. I'll be basing it on a robust base and use it as an extra piece of terrain in, since we play it that once you've bought an opulent coach you'll get to place it in your deployment zone.  alien

The ghouls look like dark blobs from this distance, but other than that, it's a really cool warband. The coach fits your leader especially well!

You can click on the link underneath every picture for a closer look. Thanks, though. Smile

Edit: On the other hand, "dark blobs" is a pretty fair assessment.

I always forget that option exists. (Although on my machine the photo gets smaller...)
Either way its a great looking warband, well presented and painted.
