Seeing that I do tend to start a ton of WIP's, I'm figuring for the sake of sanity and keeping this forum a bit cleaner, I'm going to go keep it all in one place. From now on, this will be the segway to all of my painting stuff so I won't be shuffling around to look for my own threads, ugh. Plus, it'll be a kick in the butt to get painting more.
Malcolm the Paladin (Redarmy's WIP thread)
Flames of War: Easy Company (Redarmy's WIP thread)
Rise of the Lich King (Redarmy's WIP thread)
More to come as I get this thing organized.

Anyways, I made some more progress on the Army of the Lich King tonight:
Ghouls from last time:
I started on my vampire count as well:
I'm not too overly happy about the eye of the model, but I'll work on making the contrast a bit better. I'm going for a very cold theme for this army as they are from the frozen wastes. I think I have the skin tones just right though, giving me a cold, pale vampire.
As always C&C is greatly appreciated!
As for Easy Company, I have two machine gun teams completely done. These guys will act as support units for 1st and 2nd platoon.
To give a little background, the unit I've chosen to go with in Flames of War is the 101st Airborne Division, and more specifically the 506 PIR, Easy Company. Think of the gameplay as using drop pods to deply but there's a bit of chance involved. I can either deploy them from the air, as a true air assault or I could have them field and march upon objectives. Overall, it's a ton of fun. But to cut to the chase here they are:
Ti give you an idea of how small these guys are, each one is smaller than the size of my thumbnail. I've gotten pretty good at painting 28mm minis, but these little guys are 15mm and under, so it presents a bit more of a challenge for me which I do enjoy. Now to just get the camera shooting right. They look too shiny in the picture, but they're not really in real life; I actually plan to put another coat of Dull Cote on them.
That's a very nice start on that Vampire. Can't wait to see more (well, I can, but it just doesn't sound the same...)
1) The NMM sword, at the tip and certain areas you should have taken it to a pure (and strong) white. In some mid-tone areas glazes of blue, or purple (some painters use red-orange colour) can make it more interesting to look at. Because you would be using glazes (or juices, depends if you speak euro painter style) the buildup of these colour shades will be so slight you can't really screw it up!.
2) The weathering, to be honest it looks like you rushed it. Chips like what you have done should be varying in size (even if they are streaking chips like what you have done the lengths, and consistency of bulk, should still vary) and the highlights underneath them should be the same highlight colour (but perhaps a little bit more natural light colour) as what you have highlighted the shield with, so if you have highlighted the shield with a bright orange, then the underside of the chips could be done with a orange, ut with a lighter tone (elf flesh works well) mixed into it. Generally light never reflect of things as a pure white, but as a yellowish-white..if that makes sense,,
3)The freehand looks a lil' bit ify..but the only way to improve that is keep on practicing. Oh, and dont use a extremely small brush (like a 000), because paint tend to dry to fast on them unless it is extremely watered down. Provided you are using a decent brush (W&N or franchville are good) size 0 or 1 will have a small enough point, whilst holding plenty of paint.
4) It may just be the photo's but does the blending of the black torso armour (looks like its just a black with a coat, or two, of grey) seem to have a lot less time put into it then the red and cream areas?
Other than that the mini is great, well done sir.
EDIT:::::::: FOW stuff is great
