Building a Dwarven Throng (update 3/05/10)

Postby emtyach » Fri Dec 19, 2008 8:38 pm

Well I have finaly inished a unit. In an early new years resolution I will try to finish all of my models I have started before starting any more(this will be tough).

Well this is the first one past the post!

I have the rest of the BFSP minis plus a bolt thrower, organ gun and a unit of Quarrellers started. I got 2 units of warriors and a longbeards and whatever my wife and kids give me for x-mas(I have a feeling that its a grudge thrower :) ) tempting me

wish me luck

Wow! 'eavy metal quality! I don't really like the new cannon, its too stubby. I much prefer the old one. Almost makes me want to consider thinking about painting them again.

Very nice, either you are making some great use of the washes, or using a technique I would love to learn. Great models, can't wait to see more.

Thanks for the comments. as far as setteling on a technique I havent yet. i used GW black wash for the crew and watered down dollar store black for the cannon. the flesh beards and clothing is FW acrilic ink, all the browns a dollar store as is the gold and the silver is dry brushed boltgun metal. The finish coat is Dollar store satin varnish then coated with Testors Dull Coat. The other minis that I have started I have tried difrent things with. Oh and i prime machinery in black and characters in white

Thanks again for the coments, there great motivation!

For the beards I just watered down the Citadel black wash 3:1, appied, let dry and applied again until I liked the look. I think that the satin varnish and then the Dull Coat is what really gives the depth. I still would like to dull the gloss down a bit yet, the picture dosent show the gloss that much but they look a bit to wet to me, except the cannon I like.
