Dark Elf Warriors

Years after I stopped playing Mordheim, I assembled and painted a majority of the figures from an old Games Workshop Dark Elf Warrior boxed set that I had originally picked up to use for that game. Although the models are a bit spiky I decided to do a handful of them to have around for use as generic soldiers in fantasy RPGs should the need arise. I painted them up in the same scheme as the rest of my Dark Elves just in case I ever got around to playing again.

Dark Elf Assassin

I originally painted up this figure to use in my Dark Elf Mordheim warband. I was really excited to be able to do him in the black scheme I had in mind; basecoat black, drybrush, and I'd be done! 🙂 The assassin's not perfect, but he was one of my favorite pieces in my collection at the time.

Dark Elf Sorceress

The Dark Elf Sorceress was originally used to represent my Dark Elf Sorceress (shock!) in my old Dark Elf Mordheim warband. As one of my earliest pieces, she really shows my "basecoat, wash, drybush" techniques of the time. As unimpressive as she is now putting together a cohesive looking force was an accomplishment for me back then.

Dark Elf Shades

The Dark Elf Shades were originally used to represent heroes in my old Dark Elf Mordheim warband. As some of my earliest pieces, they really show my "basecoat, wash, drybush" techniques of the time. They're remarkably unimpressive compared to my current paint jobs but putting together a cohesive looking force was an accomplishment for me back then. It took me a while to come up with the color scheme for my warband but I eventually settled on the blue and black that you see here - I was having success painting blues and the black seemed to help make the army suitably dark.

Dark Elf Corsair Conversion

My converted Dark Elf Corsair was my second attempt at NMM, which I quickly learned photographs better than it looks in person in my mind. He was painted up to serve as my warband leader, and served quite well in the role.  The ninja elf earned himself a reputation on the table.  Maybe my painted figures performed better back then after all.

Dark Elf Blackguard

The Dark Elf Black Guard were originally used to represent Fell Blades in my old Dark Elf Mordheim warband. As some of my earliest pieces, they really show my "basecoat, wash, drybush" techinques of the time. As unimpressive as they are now putting together a cohesive looking force was an accomplishment for me back then.

¿Qué pasa con todo el azul?

My painting has been progressing slowly but steadily.  Nowadays it seems like I can only spend so much time with the brush before I need a break.  But I recently made progress on a handful of miniatures so I figured it was time to add to my (lacking as of late) collection of WIP shots.

Rhoven & Honor Guard

Rhoven & Honor Guard

First up is Rhoven and the Honor Guard.  I posted some initial WIPs of the Honor Guard a while back and since then I've made some pretty good progress.  The Honor Guards have actually been sitting mostly done for a little while now while I worked on Rhoven himself.

I'm most happy with the lower portion of Rhoven's robes so far, but there's still some work that needs to be done.  I'm going to repaint the stole for starters; the highlights were pretty borked when I did them the first time.  That and some more general cleanup work should make him ready for sealing.

February/March Painting – Back in the Black!

Despite my best intentions, I got absolutely no models finished in February. Not a single one. Talk about shooting my efficiency in the foot. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the primary culprit for this procrastination was an old nemesis which somehow caught back up with me: Sid Meyer's Alpha Centauri. That cursed game consumed many hours back in college and when I made the mistake of reinstalling it I found myself falling into old habits. However March was an entirely different story.
