Here are my first dipped models, the unit of 5 forsaken.
Again, pretty happy with the result. They seems to have photographed marvelously which is rare for me. I love the models and can't wait to seem them rip stuff up then die horribly in a manner fitting to their calling.
And here he is in all his glorious red. I'm perfectly happy with how he's turned out. I was nervous about the terracotta bases, but some bold highlights and brown grass did the trick. I think the tree foliage also helps balance the red. My aim of having the army finished in time for Tin Soldiers in on track due to my decision to dip the army. Having finished my first dipped unit, I'm pretty happy with the result too. Now, the painting formulas so I don't forget:
Skin: Mechrite Red Badab Black Mechrite Red P3 Khador Red Base P3 Khador Red Highlight
Horns/claws: Scorched Brown Graveyard Earth Vallejo (?) White (72101) added for highlights
Base: Terracotta Devlan Mud Terracotta/Vallejo Bone White
So I've got lots of projects on the go at the moment. Firstly here is my Warriors of Chaos Dragon Lord, fully modeled and prepared for a lick of paint. I picked up the model from my local club's bits box and have been meaning to put it to use for some time. To those of you that are bound to claim all Chaos Dragons must have two heads... shut up! I don't care. I have finally decided upon a paint scheme for my Warriors of Chaos, which I will actually be dipping to get them done in time for Tin Soldiers 3. Cream and red is the order of the day, so the dragon is going to be dark red with my signature bold highlights. The Lord the Juggernaut rider and is interchangeable.
Secondly, here is the fully painted 15pt army for the Nation at War Warmachine campaign. I am pleased with the colour scheme (consisting of more white than the usualy Cygnar blue), and also with the quality given the low amount of time I committed to finishing these off. We are currently half way through the 25pt part of the campaign. My list for this segment is:
pStryker ^Ol' Rowdy ^Lancer ^Squire Jr Warcaster Black 13th 6 Sword Knights Eiryss, Angel of Retribution
WHFB has taken a back seat in recent years partially due to the release of 8th, partly due to the continued company direction taken by GW, but mostly due to the rise of Warmachine around the country. I am the proud owner of a ~100 point Cygnar army, a ~50 point Skorne army and 40 points of Khador. I travel the tournament scene with some regularity and will look to increase my trips around the country (and hopefully overseas) in the coming years. I'm also the sidekick in NZ's first Warmachine podcast, which you can find here: http://thrallblacks.blogspot.com/search/label/Thrallblacks%20Radio
