I will start my contribution to it's hallowed pages by posing what I have so far of my Space Boar's 40K Army. The idea is to use the Tir-Na-Bor Dwarfs from Rackham to build a whole Space Wolves army... and since I'm a huge fan of the Chicago Bears (American Football), I decided it was a great opportunity to paint an army in their colors.
My first unit is of Grey Hunters, or as I call them in the Space Boars, Boar Hunters. There are Nine Boar Hunters (including one captain) and one Wolf Priest (or as I call him, Boar Priest).
A few of my Blood Claw (Boar Claw) unit showed up above. Below are few more pictures of the units making up my still WIP (but almost done) Boar Claws.
*sniff* I remember when this project was just colored concept art! The actualization is really good! I like the blue energy-swordish style for the weapons and blue/orange always look so cool together. My only suggestions (and they may be completely wrong) is that I liked it better on the figs where you *didn't* white-line the blade like you did with the swords in the first picture, it's just so bright that it's jarring. Also the Thermopriest's rad moustaches in white are lost against the gray of the armor.
Hey hod, great to see them (and you) here as well, it's amazing to see them all together! Especially on the first pictures, the swords look like made of glass, which is a very cool effect. Great job, well done! How's the Chariot going? I'm very excited about this piece of gold!
dienikes - Never played a game of Confrontation or anything Warhammer before. At this point in my life I am a pure painter. I'm not against playing, just don't have a community where I live and have enough things taking up my time.
@atreju - Thanks for giving us DPers a place to go. I chariot is still waiting, but there's a contest with a prize on Bugmans that involves painting something half painted, so I'm entering that - hopefully that will be enough motivation to get it done.
very good work It is very hard for some painters, certainly the timid rookie painters, to forget about the color scheme that the company's studio painters made on a fig and come up with a fresh color scheme You certainly did it with these figs
I really liked the khor warriors and Hirh-Khan
The only suggestion that jumped into my head was that Pilzenbhir would look more menacing and a close combat monster was if he had bayonets on his pistols
Yea, I'm weird in the fact that I don't like doing factory paint jobs. I prefer to make it my own and do something no one else has done. It makes the mini feel more personal to me. But to each their own.
