Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

Thanks Elendor! Been a pleasure seeing your recent activity in the painting forum. I've slowed down drastically lately, and I think it's time for a break. I've got a sizeable force that I can make some pretty varied lists with, and there are only a couple of things I want to try out, those being Si...

Re: Elendor's Host of the White Tower

As my painting improves my older mini's will start looking worse by comparission. However, I long ago decided to never repaint a mini unless there was nothing else to paint. I would much rather have a fully painted army where half looks only acceptable because I painted them a long time ago than ha...

Re: Azaam's journey to his full painted army

I like the colour scheme! Looking forward to see more of the Sea Guard.

I use mostly Vallejo (Model Colour and Game Colour) but now I am curious about the difference with the Army Painter paints.

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

I particularly like the sword :)

Btw at some point I needed tails for my horses too and I bought some from a UK-based seller of metal horse tails on eBay, but he does not seem to have them available anymore :(

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

I was just taking a look and I like the colours for the Shadow Warriors, they have a suitable dark vibe.
And the axe and shield of the Ellyrian Reavers is a cool idea!

Re: Elendor's Host of the White Tower

I especially like the second shot. It looks cleaner, definitely :) I like the colors you used. It gives a very different feeling than what we're used to see for Swordmasters. Also the base are pretty good. Nice job ! Thank you! I am now considering to repaint the other 21 Swordmasters I have with t...

Re: Elendor's Host of the White Tower

I have had some time this weekend to finish 2 Swordmasters that I had bought some time ago.
The paint on the sword ended a bit thicker than I intended, but overall I had fun painting them :)

Long time no see! I have finally picked up my brushes again and I painted a Giant Eagle yesterday. The model is a Pathfinder Deep Cuts: Giant Eagle, and it is a really enjoyable model to paint: it's a single piece so no need to assemble anything, came pre-primed, and the plastic support bit is reall...

Re: Azaam's journey to his full painted army

I think they look fantastic! I like the overall result, and the green gems work really well. I agree with making the red area wider on the swords and with adding contrast to the plumes of the helms. For hair, what I personally do: Copper blonde: yellow base + Reikland Fleshshade wash + yellow highli...

turquoise/green/blue colour scheme This really comes across, a 'marine' touch. Glad it is the case :) I started with the idea to have a colour scheme fitting to Saphery, but over time I decided I like more this marine touch, since High Elves are very connected to the sea. I guess now it fits more Y...

Nice job on the rune, it captures better the "tears" feeling of the rune :D

It's always nice to finally assemble and paint models that have been sitting in boxes for too long! I particularly like your Prince on Griffon.

In the end I chickened out of drawing something more complex than a rune and some stars in the banner, after some attempts :oops:

Welcome Azaam! I have a similar story, after a 10 year break I decided to buy some brushes and paints in 2017 and finish the models I had bought :D I second the option of red clothes and orange border (as in number 4). I think for the gems some green or even blue could work out fine. Good luck and k...

Re: Elendor's Host of the White Tower

I think you are both right, I should pick something simple and practice on paper first.
I am considering a phoenix symbol and some flames below, which should look good and be within my capabilities :lol:

I recently primed 15 metal White Lions and 2 Tiranoc Chariots (although I have to finish other models first) so it was funny to see that you have been painting exactly those :lol:
I like the cloak of the White Lion! I second the red highlights suggestion :)
