A Dwarfs Tale: From King to Clansman Part VI. - Thunderers Complete

I have finally finished off the unit.  Ten thunderers with a musician.  Overall I am quite happy with them, I am reworking my recipe with the dwarfs - I have recorded the paints used and all that.

Also, you might notice some new links at the top of the page.  These are links to my completed projects, tutorials and photo gallery.  The 'Hobby' page is a little off set, because I cannot code with HTML, but I think it vaguely looks decent enough.  I hope you enjoy!  Oh, and I added the 'You might also like' widget.  I like it.  Just an attempt to try and improve the blog somewhat.

A Dwarfs Tale: From King to Clansman - Thunderers finished

Another update for the Dwarf Tale 'project'.  The Thunderers are almost complete.  I have just one final thing to do, the bases.

A Dwarfs Tale: From King to Clansman - Thunderers

This is the first part of the newest unit.  Five thunderers, minus bases.

Overall I am happy with them, the cloaks I am less happy with but overall good.  I have been playing about with the recipes and recording them properly.  I am quite proud of some of the beards, I tried different ways and they turned out well.  I really like the tanned type of beard.

Mannfred Von Carstein - Complete

I finally got around to finishing this guy off.  I have enjoyed painting him, and got my first practice at verdigris on his staff.  The horse I went for a charcoal tone with dark metallic armour.  The base is basic but I think works quite well, the leaf litter works really well I felt.

A Dwarfs Tale: From King to Clansman. Part V - The List

It has been a little while since I posted about my dwarfs, and I have made some decisions about the army.  I realised that I wanted an army that was playable and done for this year.

Moving the hobby along

 So, as I discussed in a previous post I am trying to advance my hobby a bit more.  This year I want to complete my Dwarfs and at least get started on my Space Wolves.  To help with this, I copied a great idea from Warpstone Pile.  I have not copied his format exactly, being as I don't want to use the painting or modelling points but I have found that it is a great idea overall.

Goals for 2011

I decided to follow the trend and post up some aims for 2011, however I decided to avoid the term 'resolutions' and instead go for 'aims' or 'goals'.  I think last year I had nothing to drive or guide me, my hobby was a little bit disjointed and I had little aim.

Mannfred Von Carstein; Pt III

So, it has been a rather long time since I have gotten the chance to update this thread, and get working on painting once more. Christmas and New Years (I hope you all had a good one!) was pretty good, now back at home in Kent along with my painting equipment. I have wasted no time and jumped back into Mannfred. I need to get him painting being as he is for the Secret Santa project and should have been sent a month ago. =/ Anyway, I think Mannfred himself has been finished leaving just his horse and base left to paint. I am unsure of what to do the armour plates on the horse though, black would blend with Mannfred's black cloak.
