Thanks guys for the feedback. I'm afraid that I put down the Space Wolves to work on a couple of other projects that had been bubbling away in the background for a long while. I also started 1 new project that I have been looking forward to since I was a kid. I just didn't know it at the time.
So first off, I had mentioned that I picked up Dungeon Saga, a game released by Mantic in the mould of Advanced Heroquest or Dungeon Saga.
Let me say here, that if you ever see me complain about a GW or FW miniature in the future, give me a massive slap. GW plastics are a dream to work with, while FW resins pack in so much detail that I'm always amazed.
On the other hand, Mantic, on this occasion, have made some fairly meh minis. They have detail, but a lot of it is hard to define, even after a wash. Also, by using a soft 'hard' plastic, you get a certain amount of bending and warping throughout the minis. I will say that this adds to the amount of differentiation within similar model types though, as they all come out of the mould differently. Ah, who am I kidding, they're a bit crappy.
Anyway, I painted up most of the rank and file way back in about March or April, but it took a while longer to do all the characters, and I only finished them a couple of weeks back. Am I totally happy with them? No. But they look fine from a couple of feet away and I was never planning on entering them into a painting competition, so they're fine. They'll be good to game with, which is all I was really interested in.
Zombie troll. Obviously. Because I guess that's a thing!
Oh yeah, and apparently a zombie troll shaman is a thing too...
Wraith type banshee spirits.
Some of the shuffling Skeleton/zombie horde:
A couple of the Evil characters. A necromancer and the dead dwarf king. I used a little Nihilakh Oxide to show the mystical energies or some such.
I spent a little more attention on the Heroes...I guess they'll generally be alive a lot longer than any of the undead throng.
First up, the obligatory Barbarian character:
Wow, an Elven Ranger. How very daring of you:
And finally the Mage.
Yeah. Boy am I glad that painting those guys is over with. Not enjoyable at all really. When none of your painting techniques particularly work, it just gets frustrating in a hurry.
So I moved onto GW figures again!
First up, I finished off my Ork Warboss from the Stormclaw set. I had painted the actual boss a little while back, so just had to do the backpack and the Squig.
I love this guy. The amount of character in this mini is just brilliant. Orks really do have some of the best minis ever created.
I've now taken up enough of your time. I'll upload the next few pictures later...and these guys I'm super excited about. This is the project that I would have wanted to do when I was 11.
