I finally figured out how to post pics (hopefully). Well I think it only fitting to start posting with the miniature that sort of symbolizes my inspiration to begin painting these various denizens who dwell within the City of the Damned. So here is The dwarf slayer which is not mine and not painted by me, nor with any previous painting experience whatsoever. Confused? If you have the time you could read my introduction and find out ( I wouldn’t). Just enjoy the pics and those that follow with an open eye for constructive criticism and/or compliments. Painting and photographing miniatures is very new to me so any helpful hints are welcome.

This mini was painted by me in honor of the last pic which was painted by my friend (once again don't bother reading my introduction to figure it out, you'll be sorry you did) He is a dwarf noble by the name of Dwinbar Rognisson, leader of my Dwarf Treasure Hunters warband. I'm still toying with various lighting and camera options since the minis still seem to look better than in the photos. Enjoy. Comments and criticism welcomed.







Coming soon... dwarf clansman, Hergar, the Hero.

CONGRATULATIONS on figuring out the posting. Taking photos is or can be another enjoyable part of painting miniature. While the second Vertically Challenged one is a better piece, both are SPLENDIDLY painted & based. GREAT WORK!  thumbsup

Thanks for the compliments. It took a while to figure the whole Photobucket middleman gimmick to post pics. Thanks Deafnala for the tips. Well, I know my last post said that my dwarf clansman Hergar the Hero would be next but he's still a WIP. Been having some issues trying to get gold armor to look right. Oh well... In the mean time I will begin posting some of the witch hunter warband I'm working on so to start here is witch hunter captain Mortmore Mahler.

The minis look just fine to me. Maybe some more shadows on the skintones, but other than that... Who is the manufacturer of your WH-Captain's mini?

More nice looking models thumbsup

Good to see that Captain painted up. I keep intending to paint mine. I have good intentions.
@Grimscull--I got mine as a gift. It was a convention freebee is all I know.

Thanks for the compliments and advice. Skin tones and metals, especially gold, have been a bit of a struggle for me to get the way I'd like, but I'm working on it. Grimscull, the mini is a convention model called Inquisitor-Captain Xander Thule and is available from Gorgon Studios.

Next up is witch hunter Abram Duskwalker, which is the actual name of the mini from Reaper (how creative of me) and two of the three war hounds from the original Mordheim casting that I (just now) named "Pirate" and "Old Blue" (hadn't named them until I started typing this, once again showing my obvious creativity in naming).

Thanks DeafNala, especially with the name assist. Perhaps he should be more appropriately named Christian "Old Lady Burner" so as not to offend anyone over at Reaper?

My original plan was to finish painting one war band at a time in a continuous post, but with all of theses cool minis of various war bands staring at me and with a touch of OCD (who doesn’t in this hobby?) my original plan failed. I will finish them just not in any specific order. So with that said here goes the next clump of minis from my Possessed warband. First is the Chaos Magister which I attempted to paint in a similar fashion to the GW model.

I was inspired by all of the wonderful conversions I’ve seen on this forum so I gave it a crack by making a mutant Possessed model using green stuff to make the tentacle arm which turned out to be more of an octopus-for-arm conversion.

If you are painting for commission or for a demanding game that you enjoy more than painting, then following a plan in The Way. If you are painting for enjoyment & aren't having fun, you're wasting your time. The variety of minis you've done up are time well spent. Each is quite striking in their own way. VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup

On the "Old Lady Burner" thing, only G.W. would be offended me thinks. The crew at Reaper are less easily offended with the possible exception of Reaper Bryan.   What a Face

Good advice, Deafnala, I agree, I'm definitely having fun painting whether or not I come across a gaming group of Mordheim players. I enjoy toying with different painting techniques while trying to find my own "groove/style". Thanks for the advice.

I think GW would only be offended because they didn't trademark it first.

Nice models all around. About the naming thing: many like to give their Empire-minis german sounding names. Duskwalker would be "Abenddämmerungsschreiter" though, which is kind of a tongue-twister even for german natives. Walker would just be "Schreiter". I also know of people going for either Heinrich Kramer or Jacob Sprenger, the authors of the legendary book "Hexenhammer" (Witchhammer/ malleus maleficarum).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malleus_Maleficarum
Come to think of it, just Abram Witchhammer or Abram Hexenhammer would probably do as well, according to his weaponry and line of work.
