I started the Uraken Goblins when I studied Japanese at the university - what better reason to start with the japanese themed goblins? At first, I really just wanted the Uraken, but as it is with good resolutions, they won't last very long, so in the meantime there are a lot more goblins here.
Bazuka and Wazabi
Sulfur and Hoosu Uzo
Kumite and Warstaff
Shigobi and Spearmen
Dai-Bakemono The right base was the first different base I made, so not just only green flock or cork rock, but with a little water puddle, a branch and a rock.
The Daikinee are a little bit older than the Goblins and would have been my very first choice when I started with Confro, because they are Wood Elves, but unfortunately, they weren't released back then. I like this faction very much.
The Bran-O-Kor Orcs are from 2014 and the Brontops were the reason I started with them - such cool models! And then, step by step, I appreaciated them more and more... For the bases, I imagined Bran-O-Kor as a kind of red, stony desert with some dry bushes.
So, that's been 16 armies so far, the last one are the Lions of Alahan. The 10 soldiers on foot are to be varnished today, the two mounted knights still have to be done, there's just the first layer of colour applied.
Impressive, I have to say. And here I am with only a clone painted so far.
Thanks, but than again, I started more than 10 years ago. I had a pause of about 2 years inbetween, though, where I didn't do anything. And your clone warrior is damn good! So, *motivational push*, how about the rest of the warband?
Wow very cool stuff. It looks like you managed to paint on a regular basis, that's almost cooler than your paint jobs. Have to learn that, live always crosses my hobby time.
Thanks. Well, it might seem so, but there are more productive times than others. I didn't painted anything between April and June, because I went back to work after my parental leave and had to figure out how family and job fit together the best, and it was a pretty rushed time as well. But now, there's the summer break for once, and I try to paint at least 1-2 hours in the evening, when the baby is asleep. Doesn't work every day, sometimes it's just about 30 minutes, but it's a start. And, as said above, there was a time when I didn't had the time for painting. But the "good old student days" when I could sat down and paint Killyox in 15 hours in a block are over for sure.
Back in 2013 I started to collect all of the armies, not only the ones I already had. And in November 2013 I had the idea to have a painted army for every faction - this project was ended today.
Here I present, the last missing army, the Lions of Alahan:
For the bases, I wanted to have something like the yellow brick road from Wizard of Oz, that kind of reminded me of Alahan and seemed to fit. The large bushes is rye, I wanted it to be similar to the Sessair bases due to the background, but decided to have something special. The blue for the armour originated in the Black Paladins. I made them with some dark-blue armour, and as they are former Alahan Paladins in their backstory, I decided to give the Alahans a blue-ish metal armour.
The banner says "Kalienne" on one side and "For the double roll!" on the other, both in Alahan letters.
The first three of seven mages are done. Blending is still not my best skill, especially when it's dry because I didn't had the time for wet blending. Nevertheless I am quite contented with the outcome. Galhyan was difficult, though. I wanted the cloak to be more jade-ish and the armour to be more turquoise-mother-of-pearl, but it didn't work like I expected. Kayl and Velrys where easy and fun.
