Here's an update to my on-going Chaos Dwarf project!
At long last, an update to my ongoing Chaos Dwarf project.
My brother has chipped in some hours and is helping me out with the painting. We are trying to put together a light box for taking pictures, but have not quite perfected that yet. We are still having some small issues getting the lighting perfect (as our basement is devoid of light to start with), but the pictures are not that bad!
Slight overhead shot of the completed unit of 20 Hobgoblins!
Different angle, different lighting!
Again, angle and lighting have changed.
The colour scheme of the second unit. These bad boys are resin cast miniatures. They also stand in front of a piece I created for the Nemesis Crown campaign that symbolizes the alliance we made with the Orcs and Goblins. It was for a Hand of Hashut competition, but I didn't finish on time. This was painted by brother.
A close up of a painted Bolt Thrower. I bought 4 of these before I even wanted to play Chaos Dwarfs. I got them at a GW Sale, where all blisters on the wall were $4 (I also grabbed some Empire Cannons and Mortars). So these were originally constructed and painted to be crewed by Night Goblins, for our Orc and Goblin army. They have been re-adapted for Hobgoblins!
A shot of the painted army.
My brother and I would love some comments. He painted the Hobgob crewman, we split of the hobbo unit, and he also painted the new Hobbo scheme. The rest you have seen before.
Also worthy of note is the fact that the hobgoblins are now on a magnetic base. A system that is extremely cheap: I use strip magnet on the undersides of the bases ($1 for a metre's worth), then a small amount of sheet metal ($2 for 3-4 units worth), that is meant for roofing or something, cut with metal sheers ($17 for the tool).
Stay tuned for pictures of the casting process I used for the hobgoblins, and for demonstrations of using magnets. More videos to come too, about magnets and casting and such.
I think they could do with a coat of Dullcote.
Cervantes: In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd.
Nice work Xandor but I agree they could use a cote or two of dullcote cause they look a little glossy/wet.
None the less this army is looking really awsome, keep it up:happy:.
CHK CHK BOOM!
Very nice work. You got yourself a really impressive force there.
Looking forward to seeing more of your CDs.
nice paintjobs, great conversions. Are you going to post more pics when you expand your army?
Much more is in the works, and pictures will be posted when they are completed.
Dullcoat may very well be used. But my brother is a bit partial to the shiny look. So we shall see.
Thanks for all the comments, they are much appreciated!
Yeah Chaos Dwaves! Awesome work, Rep worth i think Love that Taurus.
Thanks Phoenix! More to come!
