Borak - I might have to try that out, but I think I am sorting it. I can just never get the highlights quite right. I actually like to use the VMC Smoke - it is a black/brown wash.
haha, that little fellow rocks. I love the addition of the phone. Again with the grots/gobbos, eh? I think someone has a fetish!
Haha I love it
Brokendoll Miniature Painting - (Coming Soon)
Muse2k8's Painting Antics (WIP and Finished Models thread)
Nice paint job on the shield! Still cant go over how awesome the GS looks...
And the little guy is just ace, haha, hilarious!!!
Kuffy: Ah well I've not tried any paints other than GWs so I wouldn't know. Either way thats what I use. Basecoat, wash, highlight and then wash again to make the highlight blend in. Yes, with the Grots. I LIKE Grots!!!! Plus I'll eventually do a Blood bowl team out of them based on super heroes and evil villans. The problem is, I've got more ideas than I have team members!!!!
RINN: If you want I can show you how I did the wood. It's amazingly easy, even an uncultered hired Goon like myself can do it.
As for the Grot, thank you very much guys. I still haven't quite finished him (he's got a belt I havent done). Do you think I should add anything to it? Blood perhapse? Blood on the phone? I could Gore it up quite a bit but I'm not sure. Do you think I need to touch some bits up? any mistakes you can see?
PS: Remeber this guy is barely 10mm tall!!!!!
I'd say no gore, I guess it would try to look serious that way. He's funny as it is
Otherwise i dont see any touch ups or anything similar needed, I mean it's a tiny model and speaking from my experiance with skinks, i dont think you can touch it up much better, no matter how small your brush or how steady your hand is.
As for the GS stuff, Id love to see how you did it, I am about to make a scratch made treeman as a gift and altho I allready did the wire work i havent yet started on the GS, so any help would be great!
Luckily I'm building some chariots so i'll take some step by step pics of how I did them. When do you need to get your project done by?
With your model, your best bet is to make the 'rough' outline of the model and add the details afterwards. Think of it as 'playing god'. You've done the skeleton (wire) then add the muscle (bulk) then add the skin (detail). Doing lots of small steps is a hell of alot easier than doing it all at once as more things can go wrong.
Just thought any GS wood work would help really, even if bark is pretty different than planks one can always adapt the knowledge they gain.
Anyway anything you can show me would be helpful
The project needs to be done by the end of march, although I might end up with even more time, depending on if I decide to send the model via mail or not.
