Another paintlog!

Im going to start posting my little works here, im a slow painter so updates will come in very irregular but i appreciate the watchers & people who comment =).

Ive already posted my Raging Heroes' Witch Elves here in the past.
Im going for a darkish theme wich is fitting for Dark Elves. I use a black undercoat with lots of metal and as a main color ive chosen red.

Recently ive completed my Cold One Knights.

The red and gold looks really solid, and the multiple textures on the bases looks good.

The cold ones aren't as good as the riders though. The solid dark green without strong highlights makes the paint job on them look flat.

Beautiful job on the tower--I would definitely put that on my table.

Everything looks great, thanks for sharing.
My only advice is as Dyvim pointed out. The CO's need a little more depth which a highlight of a few shades will take care of. Keep up the great work.

Nice Cold Ones, I also like your witch elves.

Have you thought about adding some detail to that flag? The solid red looks good but a few DE Runes or something might liven it up a bit more.

Also with the gold treatment perhaps a few tiny mithril silver highlights at the most extreme points of the model might also add an extra dimension.

Overall good standard - lets see more!

Cheers! I'll try the highlight tonight, thanks for the tip. And about the flag, im not very confident about my freehand painting, one of the days ill find me a good guide and fix them up. Until then the solid red are placeholders on all my banners.

You can buy the materials to make decals in an inkjet printer. Then just download the Druchii language font (check this thread http://druchii.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=46315) and use it to make some big runes in any color to stick on your banners.

The cold ones looking flat may just be as simple a thing as being drowned out by your background (Desk). Maybe making a photo box or simply draping a white sheet over it for your next batch of photo's will help. Your camera is pretty crisp, so I'm certain that you'll have some pretty amazing results with a uniform background and complimentary lighting.

That is a beautiful unit of cold one knights!

Nice job of ranking them up so that they fit 5x2 and 10x1 as well! :D

Truth.

I have a unit of 5, and I am reluctant to expand them because I think I would have to rebase to get them to rank deeper than 1 ...

Thanks to this forum i knew in advance about the ranking difficulties. Just a heads up to other people who are gonna glue them. Rank them slightly angled... Try to make a 2x2 block and glue the whole unit in that position.

Great models, the red really suits them and they're very well painted. And the Vestals are amazing, I just love those figures. Thanks for providing them link to them. :)

I like those cold one knights. The color scheme fairly similar to what Im doing with my army, and I got a feeling my riders are going to look quite like yours ;)

Ive finished some work!

Ive also been experimenting a bit with the taking of the pictures itself. So they may appear a bit rough. I'll get the hang of it sooner or later.

I'm introducing my 2nd peg hero/lord/sorceress. The riders are magnitized so i can switch to whatever i feel like fielding!

Image

And here's a picture of both my pegasi... Theyre kind of similiar i know, i hope the pose and the little details will make them stand apart from eachother.

Image

And as always, i appreciate the comments and tips to improve, thanks :).

Absolutely stunning. The faces, especially the eye's, are making me jealous, they turned out superbly. Keep up the great work & thanks for sharing!

Love the Peg's full of plenty of character.

You have a really cohesive looking army - what are you working on next?

Finally a mount worth for the Storm King, now he can finally put aside that pidgeon winged pony and inspire TERROR into the hearts of his enemies!

*Ahem* That is until my friendswill start focusing him with their cannons and boltthrowers ;).

So my dragon, named flufwise Abramaxx, is done. I still have to paint up some more riders though. Also, im not quite happy with the wings. Im gonna think about them and listen to advice before i decide to redo them.

What's not to like about the wings? I think the dragon is excellent. It's the best of your work that I've seen on this thread and the witch elf thread.

Overall, I don't see a problem with the wings, but if you're going to fiddle with them I think that the only weakness lies in where the wing meets the body. I just feel that the two skin coulours would start to blend just prior to the place they meet.....

From what I can tell from the picture, I really really like the wings! They look papery and make Abramaxx look really ancient. They go really well with the dark tones and size of the roots on his (her?) spikes. If anything I would consider extending the dark roots on the teeth and making them look a little gnarlier to match his overall feel. It might be the lighting, but in the picture the gold is almost too bright, and a little distracting, you could consider washing it again to tone it down a touch (I really like desaturated colors like on the rest of the piece).

Great job!
