Those Armigers... so... beautiful ! Also really love the new Skaven minis, so I'm glad you're doing them. Can't wait to see how those turn out!
Thanks MyenTal! I'll be pottering along with the Skaven, but I have 1 more 'mini' that I want to cencentrate on before I work on anything else...
Oh man, soooooo good. Those armigers just look fantastic! I LOVE the pose on the new one too. Mid-action poses are my fave. Love how the arms and the split color scheme are on opposite sides on each knight, that is a really awesome yet subtle choice. The paint jobs are just phenomenal as always Loosh.
I find the models pretty dorky if you put them together facing forward; they're oddly proportioned for that kind of pose. Change an arm angle here or there and twist the body and they look a lot better. Anyway, glad you're loving them!
Also Skaven! Damn! I'm working on AoS stuff on commission, Brian is working on his Shadespire gang and now you too Loosh. Everybody is tempting me with AOS stuff lately... I want to play! Damnit.... I'm sure this is gonna be glorious!
I haven't touched AoS yet. Just putting together the Shadespire gangs as they're much more manageable. I have actually got a reasonable sized Skaven WHFB army that I only managed to use a couple of times before the change to AoS:
I will not miss ranking up these guys:
This guy was soooooooo much fun to paint though!
If you exapnd out to army size you gonna get the Great Horned Rat model?
ha! Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha! Ha! Ha! Haaaaaa........
Yeah. So if you didn't know by now, I vastly underestimate how quickly I complete projects. I try to be realistic, but my form of realism is 'If I can paint for 3 hours a day and pretend I don't have a wife and child, I can defo complete this in 2 weeks...'
But that means I also vastly overbuy models to work on. Check it out:
But, as you can see in the top right, one of these boxes is a Horned Rat model. I think I'm just waiting for more Skaven units to drop in AoS, because I'm absolutely not a Plague Monk guy. I love my Storm Vermin and Warlord Clans too much! I'll work on him one day, but he's down the list of 'stuff I'm embarrassed I haven't painted yet'.
And yes, looking at those photos, while considering I have several other boxes unopened in my garage
, I am hugely aware that I have a problem.
A big problem
Oh well...best go buy more miniatures to comfort myself
What kind of freaking monster are you!!!! Those arminger or what not... They are so insane... That's an absurde level of painting and patience for details. That's mind blowing.
Just how do you get so many blend of red and dark everywhere? Aerograph? Wash?
Thanks Grizzlykin, that means a lot!
As for the method, I plan on putting together a guide on how to achieve the effect when I paint my next model. So it should hit in the next 2-3 weeks if all goes well. In short though, it's a silver base with Forgeworld clear glazes applied in several layers over the top.
Thanks for the feedback all; as a reward (Or punishment, depending on your point of view), have a couple more. photos of Armigers. Hey, I'm building stuff...plastic glue and mold lines aren't photogenic!
Basing elements to come:
Hints of weathering:
Just hints though, I wanted these to look pretty fresh:
Finally, I sneak preview of the next item in production (Also the last of the Ad Mech type units for a little while...I'm getting burnt out by them!):
Thanks, everyone, for dropping by and giving your support and feedback; you guys rock!
