Flesh-Eater: "Hey, Zeiren, pass me the Oregano, this Dwarf has a strong taste!" Zeiren: "I'm all out of Oregano, would some Thyme do it as well?"
But it was just green tea and Roiboos-Vanilla, at least this awful stuff was good for something. So yeah, the Devourer smell a bit like vanilla. I used Thyme for the Griffins, though. Hm, does that mean the Griffins flavoured themselves already for the Devourer?
Thanks. My paint-counsellor (aka girlfriend) suggested, that the Devourer should have some moon-metal armour, ideally with a mother-of-pearl colour. But as this is nearly impossible, with all the rainbow-coloured-oily effect, I decided to go this way, and I'm quite content with it.
Yeah, but the pictures are first in the Corpuscle Pain along thread here. As soon as I finished them all, the pics will be here as well. So far, every Orc but Kolghor (base needs to be done, paintjob is done) and the Mystic (skin, robe, wood, weapon) are done.
The Behemoth are finally done, but they've taken a lot of time. I started them during my parental leave, but when I was back to work, there was literally no time for painting. But now the summer break starts, all reports and gradings are done, so there is time for the family and the miniatures.
I really had a lot of respect (and fear) for these miniatures because of the high amount of detail. But after I started doing one thing after the other, it wasn't that bad. Also, the ice-themed bases were a first try for me and I'm very content with them.
Kolghor and Mystician
So there are just the Barhans left! The 10 footmen are almost done, just the armour details have to be finished, the two mounted knights have their base colours.
Thanks a lot! Yeah, it would be a bit shameful, if there wouldn't be any progression at all after all those years. And I even don't have any of the real old pictures here, yet. But when the Lions of Alahan are finished, I'll put all the other armies in here as well. Or maybe even earlier, we'll see.
Good luck with the exams, I'm excited to see some pictures of your troups!
Thank you. There are still elements I find very difficult, like eyes, proper blendings and especially metal, but I'm content with it.
But now it's really time for the very old pictures, so I'll give you the Wolfen, the very first miniatures I ever painted. Also, this thread should give all of my armies.
This is a very long range of time, some has been painted more than 10 years ago, the latest are about 2-3 years old.
Isakar and the Lonewolf have been the first I painted, ever. And I got a second Watcher, because it was the first Confrontation miniature I've painted and it should be the last as well, sometime in the far future. Kind of coming full circle, I like that idea.
Yeah, I know, in the beginning I was quite content with just green flock and some cork rocks. It was also quite hard to come up with a certain base scheme in those days, so a lot of my old miniatures are just plain green flock bases. But I still like them, and I'd never repaint them, because it shows the development and it was how I painted back then.
My second army were the Drunes, so these are about 10 years old as well.
The Mid-Nor were my girlfriend's army at first, but then I took over. Here is quite a range of time, the Incubus was one of the first Mid-Nor I've painted, the Warriors of the Abyss were finished about 4 years ago.
