Well, I have been waiting to get some models aside from my Chieftain started before posting any pictures but I did some work on some models today so here we go!

First up, here is the Chieftain as a bit of a refresher.




And here is a work in progress pic of the Condemned I have been working on. Still got furs, the boots and scales/spikes on the mutie arm to add but the bulk of the model is now done. Anybody who plays Warhammer Online will guess where I got my inspiration from. Wink




I have also started on one of my Champions but was unhappy with his chainmail so will be redoing that.

COOL STUFF! thumbsup

The Chieftain ROCKS! I LOVE the way you did the scabbard. The casual pose is right on; i.e., it implies power. Nice choice of colors. The Condemned looks VERY promising; definitely the stuff nightmares are made of. WELL DONE & KEEP'EM COMING!

Great work, Cat! I like them a lot! The Chief has a lot of character, his pose is really great. The paint job is very well done also. A big thumbsup from me.

I look forward to adding them to the BTB gallery once they're done. Very Happy

Nice, Catferret! The Chieftan model is great, and the condemned is off to a brilliant start too. That greenstuff work is amazing! Can't wait to see more of this warband...

Aaaah, Cat Smile Thanks for posting those!

Your Jarl is REALLY cool. Actually, I nominated him for a medal (won't say witch one, you'll have to go check) at Golden Tom #1. Unfortunately the other judges don't know awesomeness when they see it geek

I love the helmet under the arm. Excellent idea. He looks like a perfect Viking. Great mini!

I'm counting on you for GT#2!

[EDIT]: There is one thing you may be able to imporve though... and that's the base. It could look a little more intersting... *makes mental note for new basing tutorial*

Cianty's right (of course! Wink ) - the Jarl is excellent, in a wonderfully understated way. It's the small details, like the helmet under the arm and the throwing axe in his belt - that all add up to a wonderful mini. Great stuff. In fact - WE WANT MORE!

And by 'Cianty', I mean 'Admin Tom', of course Embarassed

Pretty sure I dont.

Here is a frank and specific discussion of this wonderful model from the point of view of someone who has judged many contests at the local, internet, national and international level. Dont get me wrong - I REALLY like this model, but I am providing detailed frank critique of what I see here in order to help catferret and any others who are interested in raising their personal painting bar by giving a bit of insight into what a judge may see in such a model. I have put it as a spoiler so if you are thin skinned or unprepared to respect this constructive critique for what it is read no further.
Spoiler:
 

I hope you found this useful and informative - id be happy to do the same for anyone on this forum just post clear pics (like the ones above) and ask (though these take a while to write so I dont guarantee instant turnaround!)

Thanks for the comments guys. Updates in this thread will be sporadic so don't expect more pics anytime soon.

Yeah, the base is very plain. It will be getting replaced when I do the rest of the warband.

tkkultist: I understand why I didn't win, and quite honestly didn't expect to. The models that took the top 3 places were very deserving of their awards.

I've never had the patience for more advanced painting techniques like blending, I just aim for something that stands out from the more common tabletop look. I only enter Golden Demon to get in to the event an hour early. Wink

EDIT: Guess I should post my planned roster as well. Seems to be the done thing. Laughing

LOL - as good of a reason to enter as any that I know of! That being said - I want to say once again that your techniques are good and your models will probably look better on the table than just about anyone you ever play against, but that I hoped that I could share a little insight on judging mindsets for those who are interested on how such calls are made for contests and to provide some constructive critique - I have already had additional requests from others here on the forum for the same thing so I guess I made at least some semblance of sense cheers

Looking forward to seeing more - especially how you approach the shaman concept.

Yeah, I appreciate the post you made but it's just all things I've been told before I'm afraid. I have friends who judge painting competitions so I know all the requirements. I just do my own thing. Very Happy

The shaman is something I'm still deciding on. One idea was the fully robed, hunched over kind of guy. A bit like a LotR Nazgul I guess. Other idea was something similar to the Zealots in Warhammer Online. He'd be unhooded so his features were visible. Most likely empty eye sockets with crazy sorcerous glow instead of eyeballs.

I'm still undecided.

I'm putting off working on the henchman with throwing axes as it's likely to be a full sculpt and I haven't done one of those for a while now. Need to get back into the swing of sculpting first.

Wow Cat. Those minis are fabulous. Your green stuff work on the condemended is absolutely ridiculous. If you didn't show me the WIP pic, I would have guessed without a doubt that it was purchased. The chieftain is also fabulous Wink

Great work. thumbsup thumbsup

Minor update on the Condemned. Finished the scales and his boots today. Just the fur around the shoulders left.



Also did a little more prep work on one of the Champions but nothing pic-worthy. Maybe have something worth photographing by the weekend.

Nice, Catferret! Those scales are excellent! That is one seriously condemned condemned - if that makes sense. Really looking forward to seeing this one painted, and to seeing the Champion, when it's ready.

I think Marauders are second or third on my list of warbands to do, and afer seeing what you're doing with them, I can't wait!

Blimey, fast responses on here! Laughing

Cheers guys, I'll get some paint on him at some point. Maybe even this week. I'm currently helping a mate with some commission painting and it's taking up a lot of time.

Thanks Tom. I have decided I hate doing scales now. Laughing

A bit of a non-pictorial update tonight. I started doing furs on the Condemned but decided it was hiding the Scales too much so am going to leave it without. I did add a Tzeentch symbol to the plate on his belt so now there are no doubts as to where his (new)loyalties lie. I think he's complete now barring a nice base, but I'll leave the base until I finish the rest of the band.

I also did the first stage of the clothing on the 1st Champion. Just blocking in the robes that the chainmail will be sculpted over. He's getting an ankle-length hauberk so I had to build up the shape of a skirt around his legs first. I'll get a little more done tomorrow and get a picture of him then. I promise. No stalling anymore. Wink

Wow. I never liked Marauders of Chaos but in last weeks I've seen two very impressing warbands in progress, and one of them is yours. The scales on Condemned are perfect. Great work man. Now I'm sure I like Marauders Wink

VERY NICE WORK! You've got the Green Stuffing down to PURE artistry. Now you're set to quit all this Chaos stuff AND start putting out some GREAT looking Goblins & Orcs...no, huh. Looking forward to seeing the Condemned one all painted up; SO get cracking. Suspect thumbsup

Good thing really as here are some pics. Razz




Robes have some basic shape to them. Once dry, I'll add some chainmail over the top. The axe is jus temporarily stuck in place to give you all an idea of how it's gonna look.

This guy will have full length chain and furs like the Jarl. Possibly a plastic shoulder pad too depending how I feel.
