    dshavers WOC army log

    Hello everyone. I've been a long time lurker and admirer of everyone's work on this forum. I'm starting a log that will hopefully help me grow as a mini painter. This is my first ever mini that I'm working on for my chaos army. There are a couple of mistakes with the prep, but I'll learn something after each mini that I paint. Be gentle. Going for a dark kind of Brom look.

    I'm a sucker for the dark and broody stuff and this guys fits that description perfectly. The darkness lends itself very well to these minis and an army of them would look awesome. It would be dark, but when you get a good look at them I think it would be quite obvious they're well painted. I think the only thing that could be done is to bring the highlights on the cloth behind him up a little bit, they look sort of lost in the gloom. You don't want them too bright, but a small amount would be fine.

    I look forward to seeing more. And welcome to the forums, I hope you stick around!

    I totally agree. I've been trying to find an even balance of pushing the highlights, cause I don't want to take the attention off the overall mood. The tentacle should add another level of contrast with the mini as well. Thanks for the compliments!

    love the color and the base. Looks very well painted, but I would like a close up to see all the fine detail

    ... wow.

    Really like the lord. Everything seems in order, and that dark metal is so menacing.

    Great job. Have some well deserved rep!

    Started working on his tentacle, and shield area. I'll get some brighter pics this weekend. Took these pretty quick this morning. If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'll do my best to answer them.
