It didn't take me as long as I thought it would, but I guess it's better to be finished early then race at the last minute to finish. The one warrior that has some stuff on its base if from an ebay auction I won that was based, but not primed or painted so I just primed over it. The Dias of Destruction was pretty beaten up by the time it got to me. Only took two and a half weeks to get to Canada from Australia. When I opened the box most of the model was in pieces so I had to practically rebuild the whole thing. The rebuilding was a huge pain the medal parts don't fit right on the raider the lord wouldn't stay together some of the pieces were missing. In the end I did get it assembled, but I wasn't really happy with how it looked so I decided to repaint pretty much the whole thing. The part's I didn't repaint are pretty obvious so I won't bother pointing them out. A rather blurry picture of all the warriors. A not so blurry picture of the warriors. A closeup of the left side. A closeup of the center. A closeup of the right. Front of the Dias Side Back Other side Angled Group shot These are the first mini's I've ever painted. I improved slightly from start to finish. The hardest part for me is the table I have to pain on is way to low for my height so I always ended up with a sore back after painting for a bit, which usually made me want to rush to finish the model. Of course if I rushed the painting ended up not so great. When I finished I did go back and try to touch up the mistakes, but after a few I decided to just leave them. My first paint jobs aren't supposed to be super amazing and it gives me motivation to improve more if I can easily see the amount of skill I had to start with.
Cool color scheme. I love orange and black working together.
Add some sand on the bases. Base with a dark brown, drybrush with a lighter brown. Some grass on that and boom. That group of models would look so much better.
Read about highlighting and shading also and try it out. Takes the models to a higher level very fast.
I LOVE YOUR PAINT SCHEME!
Just keep practicing, I personally think they're really nice.
Ahhh, they burn my eyes!
Nice start. The g.w washs will help you loads. I think you should try the brown wash
on a old mini just to see if you like the results. And maybe a tiny bit of highlighting.
Well done so far, keep it up!
I AM BOOMER!
