Showcase: Dwarf Hammerers

Between other projects and a general lack of inspiration these poor guys took entirely too long to get done. Now, several months later I can finally say they are ready for a little Hammertime.

WIP: Garfy's Orc Armies on Parade Board #11

Lots of paint on this update. I dug out my old Vallejo paint (I'm a Citadel paint fan nowadays) so I used up all my old browns. I bought some large synthetic water colour brushes to speed up painting the fort. It's a combination of painting, dry brushing and sponging. The main base is pretty much the same but with more sponging. It's so much faster than using an airbrush. 

Showcase: Julian Bayliss' Collection

One time when I was looking for inspiration for Undead models, I came across Julian Bayliss' work. I was blown away how sinister, dark and extremely detailed his miniatures are. Not only the painting is so superb, but the conversions are too. I invited him to be a guest here on Tale of Painters, to which he gladly agreed. Over to Julian after the jump.

WIP: Garfy's Orc Armies on Parade Board #10

This Saturday, Games Workshop stores will see the judging of Armies on Parade. I'm slightly worried now because I'm still not finished! Please give me your support to help me finish this huge scratch built project on time! Lots of updates this week as I plough through this project. Stay tuned. 

Showcase: Dark Eldar Archon

Today I bring the new version of Archon that I picked up about a week ago. The day I bought him was a fun one as I finally got to meet Stahly before he set off to the Warhammer event with Garfy. I'm still bummed that I never got the chance to go due to work as from what I heard they had a awesome time. Hopefully next year. I like the new Archon model a lot and he was a fun painting project. The only thing that I would recommend is not to glue the head to the model before painting. I can imagine if the head is glued painting could be a nightmare. What do you guys think?

With the Orctress finally built, it's time to detail the board. Learn what I used to detail the foamcoare with after the jump.

WIP: Dwarfs Hammerers WIP #3

This is what I have been working on lately to finish up the Hammerers. I am theming my Dwarfs around Belegar which explains the red/purple/white color scheme. I call the unit the Ruby Regiment, the blood sworn bodyguard of Belegar Ironhammer, King of Karak Eight Peaks. I pulled the Eight Peaks banner icon from the Dwarfs book but gave it a round blood drop bottom and a Rune of Courage for good measure.

Showcase: Dark Eldar Voidraven Bomber

Hey all :) Today I bring you a Dark Eldar Voidraven Bomber. I've been a little quiet on ToP recently due to the amount of commission work that I have to complete. It's really been that crazy and hopefully soon I should start posting more again. Initially I was planning on painting it the usual Dark Eldar green color scheme that GW had done, but decided against it.
