    Dwarf warrior test models

    Hi,
    I recently picked up a unit of Dwarven warriors and quickly got to test models painted up:




    I thought i'd go for an un-uniform regiment rather than a strict colour scheme.
    The snow on the base looks pretty bad,so if anydoby has any good ways of making realistic snowbases,let me know.

    Sorry for the not so brilliant pictures,I'm still getting used to taking pictures with my phone.

    Cheers,
    Mike.

    They happen to be small because they are thumbnails,if you click on them you'll see bigger pictures.

    The thumbnails do not open up bigger and the pics remain small, from what i can see they look good but better lighting and bigger pictures can help. Use a camera instead of a phone as you will get better results with photos.

    While the photo's are small, I can tell you how you might be able to improve on the snow.

    Kuffy wrote an excellent guide (or tutorial) to snow bases here and I think that the key is actually putting the snow on top of an already based base, some rocks, grass, mud whatever you would normally use is fine.

    Then a snow mix on top, it just adds a bit more interest, rather than snow on the plains so thin you're standing on the ground, yet so thick it hides all trace of the ground underneath (just looks a bit wrong).

    I have used this in a couple of my bases in my WIP thread (link in signature), the Reavers are on plain stone + snow and the Spearmen are on stone with grass mixed in as well then snow on top.
    Cheers Allonairre

    Those are great models dude! I really like them, you've got some good blending and highlighting, but it's not too strong - what I imagine as the ideal mixture. The hair/beards look very well done.

    Also: I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but you could take a look at this tutorial -
