Hey everyone. I've posted pictures of my army in the gallery section of LO.
Some of the army (obviously) isn't finished yet. My characters, the catapult, and the stealth Tomb Guard on the far right.
What do you think?
I think they look really good overall. The blue theme looks good on the table, and it really ties everything together. Also, the minor conversions you did here and there look good.
The only comment I would have is the bases. I don't particularly like the ballast or whatever you used. It has an almost transparent look to it, like its salt or something. If you were going for a sand look, I don't really think you pulled it off.
Other than that, great job. Theres nothing I like to see or play against more than a painted army.
Those are some sweet dice!
I like the look overall, its pretty good. About the bases, give the a brown ink wash and they'll look more like sand. Or you could layer them up, paint them scorched brown then drybrush vomit brown or snakebite leather.
Its ironic isn't it, that real natural pieces don't look realistic enough in WH until you paint them.
I particularly like the casket!
What are those movement trays? Did you make them yourself? They look cool
The bases are actually based with cleaned play sand. I agree, how real rocks/sand/etc doesn't look 'real' on a miniature until it's painted. I'll do a test paint on a spare base and see how it looks with a brown ink wash.
The movement trays are balsa wood. I cut out the dimensions needed for frontage and sidage, and then added a 1/4" lip with another piece of balsa wood. Then I beveled it with the sanding head on my dremel tool. After that, I just sprayed it with some brown spray paint. (A note on this: If you plan to use balsa wood for movement trays, always budget a little more space than you need for frontage: so if you need 100mm frontage, make it 102-103mm before adding the lip. The paint on the models and the wood with fill this gap.)
The dice were actually my motivation to paint my army this way. I think it's good luck to match your army's paint scheme to your dice colors. In the case of my Broom Kings ('cause they sweep the competition away, wakka wakka wakka), I couldn't decide on a paint scheme until I found those dice. Then I was sold. They are actually very pretty dice.
I'm particularly proud of my Giant, who I've extensively converted with epoxy sculpt.
Aside from the cowel he's wearing, if you notice in the second shot, I've worked up his 'eyebrows' so that he looks pissed, instead of the 'scared-sock-monkey' look that GW provides us.
