Darthain's adventures in not space ships

Recommended Posts

AAAAND we're finally done the command pack.  I could not realize my flame with a ring from center out hot spot, so I caved and did a basic, more boring one, that turned out OK I guess, better than attempt one.  There just wasn't enough material to build what I wanted out of it (or that's the excuse I am using, better painters than me could surely manage).

HEY! gives Ardus his head back! he needs that!

Not anymore! (Muahahahahah).  I had a serious dark streak in that line of thought.  Hey, I want to put Ardus' head in a golems hands.  Well he is undead, better make sure we all know he is still alive with glowing green eyes.

Amazing work! That paint job is stunning.

...and Ardus looks Stunned, to say the least.

Thanks, it was a very fun one to do.  I experimented with 'TMM' (true metallic metals) shading techniques on the swords, effectively glazing down just like NMM, with non metallics, but highlighting up with metals, as I normally would.  Game out great I think, and helps the shadowed areas not be shiny (shadows shouldn't be shiny anyway).

Golem is ridiculous....that is just insane man...

I need to figure out where i can cut the arm to move the sword like that. Having 3 models with the same exact pose out of 4 isnt an appealing thought to me.

I've done most at the elbows, when I'm back at home I'll snap a pick of my others, unpainted, you can see my fill work clearly.

So I've been spending a bit too much time on Hawthorne.  Here is his horse.  I only need to shade and highlight the gold to finish it.  Find the joke, get 10 internet points. 

Man and rider hawthorne need the gold (top to bottom), sword, and wings completed.

And we finished Hawthorne today.  I feel the Runewars miniatures are deceptive, they have just enough detail to allow you to hang yourself. I may have spent a bit much time on Hawthorne.  Also, contest still on, what's the joke? (there's a joke on this one, for those savvy enough to find it).  I need to go paint a Quasar now so Armada doesn't get jealous.

Nicely done. I appreciate the purple -- nice to see some on the forces of good for a change.

The rocks on the corner edges of the base look great as well.

Keep rocking it, after Armada of course.

I'd like to know what makes Daqan 'good'.  What if I' m annexin all your territory?  Then again, it is the same colours as my imperial regiment in Armada, who are the heroes, suppressing galactic terrorists.

They're considered "good" because they're not undead monsters or demon worshippers.

What if the undead are really just haunting your **** for stealing all their land.  Or the demon worshippers just doing what they need to do to reclaim the homeland you booted them out of (this kind of stuff is exactly why fantasy is often very boring ?)

That said @Blutsteigen I find the stock Daqan colours pretty abysmal. Full coloured armour is a bit cartoon.

I was being a bit facetious actually.  But, I haven't read the Lore book.

 

 @Darthain -- I agree about the stock FFG colors man. We'll see how you feel about the red and tarnished armor I'm going with for them.  Going to be far less clean and hopefully hold a shred of gritty realism.

So we're done here, not entirely sure I'm happy with the base, there is an area at the front reserved for a wildflower tuft when I buy some.

The Amethyst Golem (or purple crystal, whatever).  I added some salt for undead players :D

That is one very stompy golem. Have you considered some magical energy in the cracks if you paint another one?

The first one was full 'energy', something moderate is needed, been thinking about how to pull it off (obviously less to start), but I've been focusing so much on what to do with the rock itself (for example working on a 'jade' golem, I'm sure it will fail), that I've been straying away from magical energy for now to not detract from (hopefully) awesome looking rock.  Full energy was bad as it kind of ruins the shading gradient, removing the lowest bit.

Really starting to pop!

The late night lighting is a bit lacking but the 'jade' came out pretty solid, the rest is familiar territory.  Swords, cloths, gems and done not much at all.  The rock was a whole lot of work, 4 different highlights and 2 shades later.
