    The photos all work fine for me. Maybe it was a temporary problem? Look again. Or try using a different browser and see if they load.

    I finally figured out how to not suck so much with the camera! Enjoy!

    Pics of steg, and both my sallies (no, the steg howdah is not finished, nor is it even put together yet lol)...and also figured i'd throw up a couple pics of the first warhammer model I started about a year ago and never finished.

    CIMG0259.jpg
    And...the HE Dragon I started working on around a year ago and never got the willpower to finish. (This was my first warhammer model I ever painted, and it is still very WIP, but I thought you guys might enjoy it.) You can also see on the rocks where I was attempting my first ever blending..and it didn't go so hot lol. The underbelly and base skin has no washes or highlights, and the base isn't finished. Wing membranes..I'd say they are finished, but lookin at them again I feel like they are missing something. Oh well.

    You did blending on your first ever model?! I haven't even attempted blending and I've been painting for about 4 years! And I don't see how 'it didn't go so well...'. It looks amazing.

    Re: Rokanos' WIP Lizzy Host (Updated with new pics!)

    Thank you! and yeah, I got really bold and said screw it. I didn't want the whole rock looking the same, so I decided to go big or go home. It is pretty apparent up close where the colors did not blend at all. From a mediocre distance it looks decent, so I suppose it wasn't a total loss. I've actually been thinking about painting over it and tryin again, now that I know a bit more and have had some practice at a couple diff types of blending. Mind you, that dragon wasn't my first ever model, just my first Warhammer model. I have painted a few reaper figs for D&D groups prior to it, but had never really attempted anything fancy, it was more along the lines of slapping some paint on and doing a quick wash and then leaving the fig. Never really got serious about painting until I stepped into Warhammer.


    @slanny - yeah I will definitly take a shot of everything once I at least have my Slann based and touched up, as well as my saurus unit (at the very least the front rank) all painted up.



    My Slann is the next on my list to be touched up and finished. The saurus are definitly the biggest project for me this season.

    Wow. The colour scheme and execution on those salamanders is excellent, great work! I'd be tempted to do something similar, but I'm already commited to making the scales of mine the fiery part.

    Also, really nice work on the scales of that dragon!

    Just read through your whole posts looks fantastic. The was sorely tempted by red on my steg model too. I look forward to your howdah shots.

    PS the detail inside the help of the HE is insane, face, eye white, eye colour and pupil. Nicely done

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    To be honest, I wasn't trying for that much detail in the eyes. I originally wanted just a single blip of color at the very least, and decided to change the blip to black, got lucky and it turned out smaller...I doubt I'll be able to replicate another model as well as I did that one lol.

    Stunning stuff here mate.
    I absolutely LOVE the scheme on the Saurus Warriors. I like it so much that I might even "borrow" it from you on my own. :)
    Awesome work here man, I'll be following this thread closely.

    Easing myself slowly back into the swing of painting. Thought I'd start by finishing up that chief I was working on seemingly ages ago. These were really quick pics, so they didn't turn out quite right, but hope you guys enjoy. I was attempting to go for a "flame" look on the weapon.

    Alright, I know I've been a terrible person and haven't updated in a couple months, but I come with exciting news!

    I am forcing myself to get as much of my army done as possible by the time the new Tomb Kings stuff comes out. I may end up selling off this army to help pay for it. (Tomb Kings was always the first army that attracted me to the game, but I wasn't very fond of the older models.)

    After that point, or even now for that matter, I will gladly take comissions if anyone wants me to paint a general or character for them (please no rank and file, they drive me nuts! lol)

    If you are interested in having me do a comissioned work for you, please PM me and we can discuss it further.

    Look for updates, as I'll be trailblazing through what I have as fast as work allows!

    So far I've based coated 15 sauri tonight, so I'm well on my way already :)


    I also want to extend a thank you once again to all those who kept an eye on this thread and helped motivate me to do what I've already done. This forum is the best :smug:


    Cheers! :pompus:

    I dig your color scheme and painting skill. I'm sad to hear you'll be selling them!

    However...

    I'm pretty much on the exact same plan! I've always loved TK and in fact it is one of the only army books where I read the entire lore section before I made it to the models / stats / items section. I had a gaming friend who played them so I never really wanted to start them. He has quit warhammer though, so it's time for me to take my rightful place upon the throne!

    So, it sounds like it's a race. =) Good luck!
