  1. Id also love a 500pt format, its our go to for a quick game when we just dont have time(quite often). Good work on keeping TTA going. Donated back when Legion first started and after a bit of an enforced break im back on the scene and its great to see your builder still well made and updated.
  2. No problem...edit to say Paos trousers were Rhinox hide...not Thinox hide
  3. OK, its long time ago and a lot painted since. Most of the Pathfinders were sprayed gray..then a white spray from above. All the main painting was done with water thinned paints..which allows he highlights of the base coat to show through(if the paint is thinned enough). The blue armour/jackets are GW Steggadon Scale Green(its more of a blue) The trousers for Pao I think were thinned Thinox Hide, the rest of the rebels clothes were a mixtureof Zandri Dust and Steel Legion drab.....all washed with a coat of either Agrax earth shade or drakehoff for the blue. No highlighting. Paos boots were just Mournfang brown. IMO if the paint is thinned enough, after base coat it looks a little ropey..but with the wash, it settles into the groves while letting the raised areas look like highlights due to the white base coat and very thinned paints. Its a bit of trial and error getting the right thinning balance. Hope it helps. Edit to say I think Paos face was DEath Guard green...again using same method of thinned paints to let highlights of undercoat show through...and I think with a wash of athonian camoshade
  4. No worries, after work later ill take a look and see what I can work out....it was a while since I painted em 😵
  5. Sorry only just noticed this. Dont know if im too late but I can check when im home later tonight if it helps(hope i can remember them when I check them)
  6. Ok, I dont know if this is against the rules(never done anything like this before) so if it is...apologies (I have posted on many FFG game forums and never done it before).....but realising that I will never have time to play (with IA, Legion, Decent and all the other FFG games I play) I have decided to stick this box and the figures on EBAY. If anyone is interested, take a look on there. If its against the rules, please delete this and accept my apologies...as noted, its not something ive ever done before in years of FFG gaming.
  7. Everything finished. As noted, not really happy with the Troll but ill see what its like with some varnish on. cheers all.
  8. Yeah I think I prefer the grey look better too tbh. Will have a look when I get started maybe thurs. shouldnt take long.
  9. Thanks (although I must add, most of my colour inspiration also comes from Sorastros guides too ;]) I think im a decent painter....but I always struggle for a vision of what colours I want to use unless I see some examples first. Im thinking ill do the Troll in a reasonably dark green, with much lighter green/grey on the chest area. Was tempted to do Darker grey, then a lighter on chest areas but I think ive read Hill Trolls are green. Hoping to start him this week but been busy.
  10. Updated 12/5, Wraiths added. Just the troll to go now 😃
  11. Photos always show the errors in painting(we all make them) and magnify them! No matter how much time you spend painting, stick a photo up of your mini and suddenly a little error is visible. Dont worry about it...normally nobody looks this closely and on such a big screen etc 😁
  12. Thats very nice for a first mini ever. Great job.
  13. Ive never really had a problem with it. I do try prime in lighter colours more often than not though (personally)
  14. Done bases for Orcses, goblins, brigands and wargs.
  15. So...when can we expect the Hill Troll(if thats what it is) and the Wights.....not that im impatient due to lack of creativity when it comes to choosing colours 😀
  16. Anyone have any reference pics of the Wraiths? They are next for me but cant see any pics in the books.
  17. Thanks Paints are mostly GW, with a few Vellejo. No highlights added, just some thinned washes. No glosses added. I will be doing matt varnish once they are all finished(the Wargs for example in the pic look a bit shiny...more so than in reality but a matt spray will sort them) Search for Sorastro middle earth guide on youtube for what I based a lot of it on (I love his colour choices)
  18. Ok Troll was last, its the only figure im not happy with, I think I messed his chest area up and I may re do him at the weekend. Heres everything- Wraiths added. Just he Troll to go. Did the Heroes very quickly over a day. The Hunters The 'rest' Bases done on some- Will just update as I do more painting. Comments/critique always welcome. Leaving the bases till the end.
  19. Now thats quick!!! Good job. These games always look so much better when painted imo.
  20. Sorry, I should have mentioned, im following (mostly) Sorastros brilliant painting guide which I think are linked on this forum somewhere. @Sorastro Even as a seasoned painter of many decades(i dont have time to do things as good as you do mind) I have loved following your guides since I found them for Imperial Assault, then on to Descent then Legion and now JIME. I also find it amusing that I have followed your style and independently moved to painting using thinned paints and no highlights as you have on here(I changed painting ASOIAF minis a few months ago) so your style in this vid is perfect for me. You are not only a great painter...but what I would consider a master of colours, your blends and choices always give a brilliant end product.
  21. Still got skin to finish and details to add + obviously basing, but here is my start on the Orcs'es
  22. Fair enough, that explains it...thought it was odd. Thanks.
