THE RETURN OF OCEANGRAVE

Post by Oceangrave0 » Mon Oct 26, 2015 11:49 pm

Hey guys... MISS ME?!?!?!? :twisted:

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG story short I have been on hiatus from all forms of table-top gaming other than the occasional Munchkin game. That is until I noticed my desk was very dusty, and that my friend sent me a few Warmachine minis, trying to get me back into the hobby... It finally worked... I am starting by painting my own personal Scyrah minis... Don't wanna accidentally mess up someone else's minis because I am rusty.... as all get out...

I started with the white paint scheme, which took forever... then moved to the idea of a more forest themed, with Olive green as the main armor color.

I NEED YOUR COLLECTIVE OPINIONS!!!

My picture taking set up isn't alive anymore... cats... boxes... little fire here and there... eh, happens. I'll get a new set up soon.

Oh btw, I missed yall.

DUDE! I was just thinking of you a couple days ago, wondering where you'd gotten to. I was getting ready to send a PM, nice to see you back!

I...am not helpful because I like them both. Ok I'll lean towards green.

I wasn't here when you disappeared, but welcome back anyways :D
Both models look very nice and I am no big help either in deciding. I really like the face on the green guy, but that is beside the actual point I guess ^^

Welcome back man!

I really love the white one, but in the interest of seeing an entire army done, I think you should go with the green. Maybe add some dark green thorny vine patterns to one of the thigh protector plates or something to break it up a bit?

I'm not sure if I was around when you took a pause, but welcome back. I think both the green and white are nice, but green is more camouflaged and it appeals to my side who loves realism. But the white is really successful too. Follow your heart. :)

I work today so I don't got a lot of time to do painting, though I am continuing my test minis with the green scheme, after brightening up the arcane glow I like the scheme both in technique and look.

Welcome back. Like Dez, was getting ready to go start looking for you.

I like the green. lots of folks do those guys in white and the green glow is going to make them shine.
