Greetings and salutations my fellow wargaming enthusiasts to my latest attempt to crash the internet. Oh, I will also be painting and building some stuff for your watching pleasure.
Over the ages I have collected quite a few awesome models, most of which I have not painted. Seeing as how my Necron army is nearing completion and how having a project log helped me finish so much of it. I thought it might be a good idea to have a log for all my wargaming endeavors. So, the goal is to finish stuff and improve my painting and modelling.

Warning: Painting skill of this user fluctuates between Average and Below Average

The plans in Wargameland are:

- Finish painting Flames of War 600pt German Midwar Panzergrenadiers
- Finish painting Warmachine Cygnar Starterset
- Start an Ork army when the new stuff comes out

I have alot of other models and fun stuff to paint and assemble on the side, but I reckon this is what will be keeping me from the streets for now. I believe it to be a good start if a person posts a workspace picture, so here we go: http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z199/Edzard1986/Overig/DSC00665.jpg

Having just rolled into Warmachine with a friend, I will probably focus on that first. My friend bought a Khador starterset (for only 27 euros!!) and I bought the Cygnar starterset (40 - 10% = 36 euros) We mostly paint together, while watching a movie or something, for the record: Warmachine is his first wargame.
The flames of war army is a long term project, I always wanted to paint some WWII miniatures and FoW seems to be a very nice game and I like games!
The Ork army I will try and make my showcase (read: presentable without everybody laughing at me) army, painted to the absolute best of my ability. The only models I will be using that I have already are the Ork kommandos.

Well, I told you all my plans. I think its time for some pictures again!

Warmachine miniatures, spot the simple conversions!

I'm having a little trouble with making the black coat & pants look like they have debth. I have been drybrushing on some highlights with blue-ish grey colours, it looks ok from a distance but sucks if you look at it closely. Anybody have a few tips how to do black cloth?

I really like the colors you are using on your Cygnar 'jacks and the FOW guys look great.

Grey Cygnar? Ironclab with a Bosspole? Converted Stryker? You're every Cygnar player's worst nightmare... I like you! :D

Good work on the FOW too, got a good amount of detail in there

Hahaha, thanks Devo :D I think the Warjacks are a little 'clean' also Stryker looks way better (ahum) with a watermelonhead ;-)

Thanks Paragon Belial, doing my best :)


Here is something I did a while ago and am still working on:

mmmm Kommandos of awesomeness. The metal is shaping up real nice actually. You got some smoke on that?

Edzard
08-11-2007, 15:38
Sadly no Smoke yet, I have only recently started using it and I'm not very good at using it :P
I did my Deceiver with a smoke, wich turned out pretty good, but some other things I tried with it looked horrible!

anyways, this turned out pretty nice: http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z199/Edzard1986/Warhammer/DSC00791.jpg

You've done a superb job on the skin there. Really like the model and your paint scheme so far is really well done. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Thanks mate, I'm looking forward to getting it finished. I'm kinda stuck on how to do his clothing though. I'd like the outfit to be black, but I have no idea of how to highlight it to make it look nicely.
Would painting it dark grey then going over it all with a black ink work? I like inks a lot more then straight highlighting/drybrushing you see :P
