Thanks alot guys! Painting and converting is so much fun at the moment (and I guess that won`t change really ;)). Tonight I`m in the process of doing my first water effects on a Troll Unit filler. I should be able to post it soon, hope it turns out well :).

Very excellent work sir! May I ask how it was to work with the gamezone pegasus and the sorcerer model? I am seriously considering purchasing a few since I really dislike our morathi model.

Thank you! :D

The gamezone pegasus is easy to work with, you might need some greenstuff to fill in the gaps but thats about it. The model does not come with a base (I think no Gamezone model does actually) and its not that easy to balance the model like that. I recommend putting the horse on some sort of pillar, stand, hill or tree to balance it. All in all its a good model tho. Only downside for me is thats its metal because I don`t like painting metal all that much. But thats a personal preference :)

Thanks for the quick reply! I just finished my last 8 month project in the form of 14,000 pts of painted WoC. I am just now starting on my Druchii army which will be my next large project!

Woah 14k WoC in 8 months is very fast, and LOADS of models I guess. Good luck with your Druchii project, don`t forget to post pics :)

Yup, it was grueling but ultimately fulfilling work! Here is a close up video of everything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDU5Omr ... tz5pD6vc9w

I will be posting up my first test minis hopefully this weekend.

Update Time :D
It took me quite a while doing my O&G unit filler (counts as 4 trolls) because I never had worked with water effects before. The bits I used are head, hands and weapon from the Troll box and a small poison dart frog from the LM Ripperdactly box. The Troll torso and seaweed “cones” are built from scratch using Green Stuff. I hope you like the water effect :)

@Ruby Thanks! I used normal sand to get the riverbank, cork to build the stones and vallejo transparent water texture. I painted the water effect (just lighter at the riverbank and darker in the middle) and then put the watter texture on top of it. In the end I highlighted the "waves and ripples" with very watered down white.

Absolutely brilliant, I love the troll, the water, everything! The water looks very realistic. The whole unit looks like Mama Troll going for a walk with ger offspring. :D

Thanks alot for all the awesome replies, means alot to me! :D
I wasn`t sure about the water effect because it really took quite some time and effort, glad you like it. Next update will be a Dark Rider unit btw where I built another little unit filler. Should be done next week.

Back again with another update. This time I thought I do another Dark Rider unit but I didn`t just wanna paint another five of those buggers so I thought I put a Unit Filler in to show a bit more action ;). I used some green stuff to build the wall and the little tree and put some puddles of rainwater on the ground aswell. I thought if the Dark Rider is already jumping over a wall like nothing, why not have him shoot with two Repeaters simultanously John Woo stye? I cut the left hand off of a Corsair (who normally use handbows) and put a Repeater in his hands. Hope you like it :)

Great unit fillers both troll and dark rider.

I've made corsairs champion with 2 hand bows, but this dark riders looks way better, It's so dynamic I would like to see diorama where he is killing 2 high elves from those shots. ;)

Woah! I missed the troll update! Completely awesome. Really fantastic unit!

I like the dark riders too. I always thought the cavalry jumping over things was cool and you have really done it nicely.

Well done.
