I'm glad you found my mini diorama to be funny
Here's an update for you. Now WE this time though :/ There'll be some next time - I promise!
Here's a Christmas Goblin Big Boss conversion that I just did with green stuff, a 6th ed. night gobbo fanatic and a skeleton's scimitar. What do you think? Note that the paint he's wearing is old. He will of course be repainted in nice christmasy colours : )
Who's that old man beside the greenskin then? Well he's the start of my new project. That means I've got 4 armies in progress ... right. I already have a 6th ed. empire army, but I want to make a Witch Hunter themed army with loads of crazed with hunters, free company fighters, flagellants and lead by priests, and probably some troops lead by a captain that an elector count have sent to aid the hunters in their holy crus -- ahem, witch hunt. The army will include loads of nice Mordheim miniatures and some random fellers, oh and lots of torches of course. The Post SoC Empire army "survivors of the storm" featured in a recent White Dwarf was a great inspiration. But I've wanted to do a witch hunter army for quite some time now.
The army's general will be a priest who's had a vision of a great evil that must be punished. The priest's army grows stronger and stronger as he convinces more and more witch hunters and rabble that knows no better than to trust him and his vision.
I thought I'd use loads of warm but not too bright colours to bring their fanatical zeal and hot-headedness to life. The rabble will have a lot of dulled down colours though.
I'm thinking that the small force of state troops will be from Altdorf, since that's where the church of Sigmar lies, and that's likely to be the place from where the priests leading the army comes. But not necessarily I guess. The dark red would tie the two forces together nicely. What do you think? Should I go for Altdorf or something else?
Another idea would be to go for lots of dark greys, browns and blacks to give the army a very dark and menacing feel, however that's not as fun to paint. hmmm
Alright it's time to show off something I've been working on for quite a while. It's a lake! (well more of a little puddle actually) It's made with GW's water effects. The water effects are really nice IMO, but you have to make a load of layers, and they need 24 hours to dry, so it's slow work. Anyway I'm pleased with the result, and it's nice to have actually made a terrain piece like this by myself (little ol' not-so-handy me ^ ^). It looks a little better in real life though, as it's hard to capture the water feel with a camera.
Oh and I've finally undercoated my dryads so it's time to paint them next I guess. Well that's all for now. Cheers!
BTW. This blog has got a twin over at warseer.com and the update there is a little bit bigger this time, since I didn't really think Chaos Marines would feel at home at asrai.org. If anyone wants to have a look then here's a link:
