Hey guys!

Seeing as I used the metal Dragon Price Drake Master Torso on my Dragon Charriot, I figured I needed a new Drakemaster for my Dragon Princes. I had a spare plastic prince from my HE army box, so I decided to use him.

I figured the crest was big enough to make him stand out, but I didn't want him to over shadow my commander, so I swaped the arms for Silver Helm ones.

He's not quite finished yet, but he's more or less done. Any and all C+C more than welcome 8Y







Cloase up of the helm/horse's Chaffron. Both wre painted boltgun metal, then given a wash of red ink, then chestnut ink, then three more of red ink. I'm very please with the results.

It is a very nice model, but if I were you, then I tried to give the face more attention. Try to give it a wash of dwarf flesh, and then painting the eyes. I'm sure that if you whould do that it would be much nicer. And maybe you could make the base a little bit more interesting by using sand and grass (both provided by Games-workshop).

The red on the armour is very nice, but the face really lets the model down a bit. Faces are always important, I certainly know my eye is normally drawn towards them. It looks a bit too pale, though that might be the lighting. I'd agree with asrai archer, try the wash of dwarf flesh and give the eyes a go. I'm not very good at eyes, but just painting them white with a black dot in the middle looks okay.

Yeah, the face needs some more work, but I suck at faces in general. I need to give the face a wash of very watered down flesh wash to bring out the details.

I don't like the GW studio bases. I walyes try to do my own. Hence why the bases of my High Elves have a grassy base with broken stones and paving

Ok, I've done what I need to, to the face, so I thought I post a few pics to show you guys.

Please note that I suck at faces in general, and this is one of my OK efforts





Let me know what you think 8Y

Cheers

Let me guess, you've washed it with flesh wash. In general this is good, but sometimes it isn't. I'm not saying that you've done a bad job, but you shouldn't use it on elves, it doesn't looks well. Try a wash of dwarf flesh, then mix some elf fleh with bleached bone and try to highlight the very high points (nose, chin)

You're half right :) I gave the face a wash of Flesh wash, but then went over it again with Elf flesh.

As I have said, I suck at faces, and I have alos realised that the lighting in this pic is very dark. It looks better IRL. Promise!

Ok, try to do the eyes, bad eyes are better than none. Just begin with black, mix 1:3 fortress grey and skull white, and leave a small line around the eyes seeiable. Then just a small dot of chaos black in the middle of the eye.
