Ywing's Scum Army

Recommended Posts

With all these forums of wonderful beautifully painted miniatures, it really inspired me to do better on my own paint jobs.  Then I thought maybe someone who isn't a painter, should post a picture or two for those of us who aren't talented at painting.  It'll also show people just how good the painters in the other threads really are.  So I decided to put up a couple pics of my recently finished Daqan.  1 core plus infantry command minus Kari as she's not done yet.  My waiqar are almost done, I might pop up a pic of them when I finish.  If I can figure out how to get pics in here.

looks really good.   I've only worked on my spearmen so far and they have essentially the same scheme.   I like how you made your calvary pop with the red.  Gives me some food for thought when I get to mine.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Primed blue, as the painter guide suggests.  I played with primed blue for like a month.  The bases I painted brown on top except one.  One I based direct on tray no prep just to see, I preferred painting the bases brown then basing.  

Basing is harder then I remember haha.

the point of this thread I hope is to show a complete novice can get table presentable minis.  And contrast against all the amazing paint threads found in this forum.

Still working on second set.  Golem done, all primered, working on reanimates.

Its a $10 fleece blanket wrapped and taped on a 6X3 board (free).  I store it behind a door haha.  It works well.  But I played a mini game on an x wing mat, and official mat is better.  I'm just cheap.

I started second set hoping I'd be done before elves came out.  Looks like the second core will go on the back burner now! Haha can't believe the elves are almost here!

I was hoping to have 4 cores of daqan done before elves.  I take solace in failure knowing elves won't be truly useful until their command pack drops, those really opened up the game.

I picked up a square yard of "Grassy Meadows" 35% wool felt for just under $7 (after using a 1/2 off coupon). I haven't played yet. Is that too small a mat? Sorry, I haven't gone through the rule-book either yet. So far I'm just fascinated with everyone's painted minis and am just past the priming stage with my figs.
