Welcome to Librarium Online!
YouTube - Seinfeld - Hello!
I'm a 29 year old dad, career soldier, geek (usually D&D style geek) and warhammer noob, I picked up the Battle for Skull Pass... for the kids of course! That box set had a lot more than I thought it would. Great value I am glad I set down the Warcraft prepaint minis starter box and paid the extra 10 bucks for this!
Anyway the boys are 8 and 10 and digging the painting. Of course I've invested nearly 100 bucks in paints, tools, brushes, back issues of White Dwarf, and the How to Paint Citadel Minis book... but it's been awesome father son times, and we havent even battled yet!
So I am no artist, but after reading the material here and in the Citadel guides I felt pretty confident. After tackling some of the rank and file Gobbos I went for Slugdrool. I pretty much used the How to Paint books article on drybrushing the Plaguebearers, although I had to switch up some of the paint colors and mix stuff I dont have (the book also gave great advice on exactly how to do this, nice!). I was a little intimidated by bright colors that would show all my mistakes but everything I've read was very helpful.
So here is my Slugdrool, he took about 2 1/2 hours of slopping on paint haha. I welcome any suggestions and expect some criticism. I'm looking forward to picking up more advanced techniques I had fun with this. I think he turned out okay but it's kinda missing the goofy/dopey Goblin army feel.
Haha, oh man those pics are horrible. Trust me this looks better when its a miniature lol.
Welcome to the forum!
I really like your model! I think you've got pretty good painting skills to say you havn't done much!
Feel free to put any photos you have of your models in the painting section for a better range of comments!
I hope you enjoy your time on the boards!
