Hi all, Im going to post my DE army log. Im posting it in druchii.net but think if I post it here also:

1) it can help not only druchii generals
2) Ill receive more feedback to improve my job, so this is a more general community than a druchii one, so comments and critics I think will be more varied

the first steps will look done very fast, the reasonis Ive been working on it about a month... next ones will appear more slowly ;)

Hope you like it, and doubts, critics and comments are all welcome, evidently...


First unit I started working...

20 warriors unit..so Im very lazy, I made a "filler" for this unit.
Its equivalent to 6 warriors 4x6 cm ...

They are warriors from Gamezone, an Spanish company. I dontt like them a lot, but GWs ones look worse to me...

the photos show the base colour, theyll be dipped in (dont know how to say it really in English, I used a mix os matt varnish + asphalt -> this was the translation I found for betun de judea)...

The filler:

http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/3558/derellenoet9.jpg

the filler comes from West wind miniatures, from a blsiter of its "bad" elves

The unit itself:

next step... I applied the mix I told before, matt varnish+asphalt ..photos look brighter than the real color..maybe a little darker than I wanted... Ill see when start to apply highlights...

Ive left the warriors for a while ...

Ive decided to make a mounted sorcerer, but for all steeds mounted one..dark steed, pegasus, dragon etc..

For this, Ill drill her out instead gluing her so I can change the mount freely

These minis are also from spanish company, GameZone...

This is the horse/pegasus, I elongated a bit the legs and drill a good pin (steel bar) to hold the horse in differente bases (25x50mm for horse, 40x40mm for pegasus)

rear view, you can se the holes to introduce the sorcerer pinning

last view for the horse, I elongated the neck also..gamezone minis (specially horses, look totally cool to me..but setting them is hard..very hard..

I know the wings can be a problem playing, but if the problem appears, Ill use only the base temporarily...

1) horse base, 25x50mm, must retouch it

http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/9021/cimg0085sf7.jpg
with GS have detailed the long hair, Ill try to do small pointy ears... If cant this will be the final step of her.

The mount has all stuff sanded down and fitted.. Ive made some addings to the mane with GS to compensate the lengthen of the neck

Lord Azoth

chariot...

I mixed the GW chariot and the CO of Gamezone (hate the old fat scaly cows from GW) the main problem was fixing both in a natural way to avoid a forced conversion

http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/1117/cimg0075vi7.jpg

http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/8193/cimg0076bp9.jpg

http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/4446/cimg0078zt0.jpg

http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/199/cimg0079tb7.jpg

the green spots in the CO are a mix of GS and glue to fill gaps and make the CO solid (didnt want to pin everything) ... Ill have to sand them down and do a little cutting...

the riders will be the GW ones.
My idea is that the chariot will be composed of 3 parts:

base+CO
chariot
riders

joined with pins, easier to transport, also if I make a heroe on foot, Ill pin him and will be able to use him on foot or on chariot...

Lord Azoth
08-09-2008, 08:37
Ill make a little explanation about how I make bases, the example will be the chariot one

First, over the pastic base I apply a thin layer of a cheap stuff, after drying it will be sanded, carved to make the flagstones as the rest of units

http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/9464/cimg0080dw2.jpg

1) I draw a grid in the base I showed in the last post, and with a small saw for cutting metal cut the main lines
http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/3729/cimg0087ya9.jpg

2) I use the showed tool to make craves and marks
http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/6753/cimg0089pp1.jpg

3) I cut some flagstones, make some carves and holes etc. with the tools showed. I stop When Im satisfied with the overall look
http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/2334/cimg0091cx5.jpg

after this I glue some sand to cover holes and make the ruinous look

Lord Azoth
09-09-2008, 08:18
As I said the chariot will be set by pieces:

1) riders and spears:

Very inspiring work here. The Sorceress on Peggy looks incredible - really awe-inspiring stuff.

Loving the warriors and filler as well... keep the pics coming.

Lord Azoth
10-09-2008, 08:42
Painting stage has started... now Ill be doing more slowly, Im too slow painting..very slow

the colour scheme is very basic:
red : Foundation one
gold: shining gold + a bit of turquoise + a bit of burnt brown

turquoise (vallejo one) for details (this will be the color for CO)

other metallics, boltgun, chainmail + a bit of purple

the photos are not exactly showing the colours (they have been autoadjusted by the photoshop in colour), and the turquoise looks more like blue, is greener)

One step of the chariot before being finished:

http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/7451/cimg0117iw3.jpg

The chariot finished, totally basecoated ready to apply the mix of varnish and asphalt as the warriors:

Great work so far! I really like how you explain every step you take! Its a pleasure to follow through your work!

Keep it up!

Are you going to include any of the new DE miniatures from GW?

Lord Azoth
10-09-2008, 11:16
Meraklis: really dont know, because this army is like a test one, want to try some things and with the new GW minis would like to apply all I had learned with the army 1.0 ;) (really like new corsairs, and CO knights)...

But really dont know, when finish paint the sorcerer Ill think which one will be next unit...

Thanks for all comments

That chariot is going to look awesome when finished great work mate!

But I can't get past the impression that the colors you used on the chassis look IMO too TK like

Lord Azoth
10-09-2008, 13:16
But I can't get past the impression that the colors you used on the chassis look IMO too TK like

It reminds me more khorne one :angel: ..but teh problem was that I imagine the chariot in red & black and none of them conviced me, so I chose red and gold (gold beacuse is a special unit) that looks better to me than black and gold...

thanks for comments

I love the use of the gamezone cold ones. I still like them better than the new GW ones (even tho they did get better) The Gamezone dark elf minis and the new GW ones are really tempting me to start dark elves. Keep up the good work.

Lord Azoth
11-09-2008, 09:28
another step, painting is harder to me than modelling conversion, so my speed has lowered...

chariot raiders basecoated..hope you like it..now going for CO and base...

Now Im painting the CO, but think it will take me a little longer I suppused, the size is huge..and Im a slowpainter

The skin look strange, and reallly dont know what to do with it..so Ill improvise

Lord Azoth
16-09-2008, 08:24
Finally chariot finished!!!
Fist some photos about the process...

bone things (or things Ive suppoused were bone)-> bleached bone (GW) + engish uniform (vallejo)

Last update for september, tomorrow Ill leave for a while..really need holidays :D ..

Sorcerer painted, as usual, base colour to be "asphalted" later...

http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/5340/picture009pd5.jpg

wanted to try another skin colour scheme, which one do you like more?

When I come back..going for pegasus!!!

Lord Azoth
08-10-2008, 08:35
Hi agian after holidays!.. Im back with this little dark pointy ears..

As I said Im more confortable setting up than painting, so Ive left the pegasus by now and starting to set one unit of GZ dark riders....and it has been like hell...

I enlarged necks and legs to avoid them to look like ponies, and the alloy is so bad than pinning was horrible.
As you canb see in the photos some hooves have disappeared because when I tried to drill legs to insert the thick pin to the base the leg literally shredded... ARGGHH!!

So now I must fill all the gaps and redo hooves in some horses

http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/1306/caballosjx3.jpg

Here are the raiders, they dont have any conversion, only a big pin to insert them in the horses, initially I think they wont be glued...maybe easier transport but well see

http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/1812/jineteslg5.jpg

Lord Azoth
08-10-2008, 08:36
umm why the photos has been reduced???..any help? must be smaller?

Lord Azoth
16-10-2008, 08:19
slow but without losing the pace..
here they are, the dark riders..

Ive filled gaps, added some manes in the longer necks, done base for all of them, etc.
Yesterday they were primed and today Ill start with the steed....

the skin will be a dark, very dark, purple...just going on testing colour schemes

Love the sorceress- good move adding the hair! Nice to see some of the Gamezone mini's in someone's log- if i ever start DE I'd definitely get a few. Good work on the chariot bases to- nice trick and very effective. Keep it up!

These horses has scars across their skin (or marks I have understod like scars)..Ill paint them in a brighter colour (base + dark fles, golden flesh..Ill do some mixes and will see the one I like more).

but what do you think, Must I paint them before or after dipping??, think before it to apply it to scars also..

Wow, I love the chalkyness of the paint! Which paint is it you use? Obviously smite me down if it's GW stuff but it looks comparatively different, top job! :)

Those cold ones are fantastic models there heads remind me of that critter in Hellboy, Samuelle or soming like that.

Lord Azoth
30-10-2008, 12:37
I use differente companies paint, but mainly GW or vallejo....

As Im priming in black most of paits are foundation one, applied enough dilluted in water (enpough to cover but enough dilluted to not paste the paint)...

for example red is mechrite from foundation, metallics are GW and blue skin is azur + oxford from vallejo..

the "trick" is to apply better 2 thin layers than one thick

Can I ask what exactly is the material you are using for your bases (such as the chariot) and how you go about painting them?

thanks...

the base is made from a bicomponent epoxy putty . I bought in a supply shop in my city:

http://www.feroca.com/productos_detalle_02.asp?co_producto=89

Its like milliput but very much rough..not good for detail or fine work but its ok for filling gaps, terrrain etc.

I mix components and create a thin layer of putty taht apply over the base/s ... after drying I make the rest of actions you can see in previous posts...

When its dry you can paint ir normally..in my case its painted with dheneb stone (foundation) for stone and burn brown from vallejo for sand

Here I am again after my move...

Ive started my 2nd CO chariot... the chasis has the following parts:

HE lion chariot: base + sides. Ived added a scaly carpet to the base
HE 5th ed. chariot: front, I filled up all the craves to leave only the dragon
DE Chariot: long piece for CO and blades

I wanted to make it only with plastic but the long piece (dont know how to say it in english) of the lion chariot was too short.

Here it is...

Raiders, as I hate clonic minis I changed a bit the DE raiders. Used DE warriors head (the joint was filled with GS modelling hair) and changed the whip and added de chariot standard/symbol:

thanks mate..the dip is a mix of extra matt varnish and asphalt.. IMO is better than amrmy painters, so this one final look is too plastic and brilliant for me...

Mine is totally matt

Very interesting thread and superb work.

I've never seen DE's like these and you can be sure to have a unique army.
Though I would add some shadow to the cold ones.

Maybe it's just the light, but the blue looks unnaturaly bright and the bony parts could use some more brown, too.

Nevertheless those Dark Elves are amongst the best i've ever seen!

Lord Azoth
09-12-2008, 13:33
thanks for comments.
@Dr.Zahnfleisch: The chariot is only basecoated in its base colours for each part..after it Ill apply a wash/dip of matt varnish and asphalt which add it a little shadowing. Im doing it with all units, when I finish enough points ti make a 1500 or 2000 ponts army Ill detail units applying highlights etc. That is the reason you see it plain.

After wahs the CO skin will look darker as bony parts..tomorrow Ill post washed chariot

another update... this time I chose 2 heroes to forget big bases and big minis ...

one sorceress on foot (the old morathi since 5th ed.) and the noble on foot of AoW (without helmet version).... I changed them a bit so I usually cant keep minis as they are

originals
1) sorceress (havent found any unpainted)

http://www.miniaturespace.net/images/WHFB/Dark%20Elves/Sorceress/DE%20Sorceress%20F.jpg

I changed the staff for the sacrifial dagger as is the object she wields, and put her in a rock to make her look more important



2) noble
http://www.avatars-of-war.com/images/aow06.jpg

changed his braid (I lose the original), his feet, they look too small to me and his sword..
as he is a heroe his weapon must look amazing...
I choose a plastic bloodthirster sword... yes, its huge, really huge..but I like it..can be used as magic weapon, 2 handed sword etc.

heores quartered:

Just some personal opinions:

The red coloured armour scheme reminds me too much of the vampire on the cover of the army book! Haha. The Lord looks a bit Blood-Elfy especially with the Golden hair. The overall painting and dipping is good by the way!

I also noticed that the hair colour were different on the charioteers, lord vs sorceress? Just wondering is it random or the males get golden hair and females get white hair?

I must say the skull effect on the assassin's facecloth was very well done! Just thinking maybe a white coloured skull effect would be more striking!:skull:

totally random,,only apply different colours to avoid tehm to look exactly the same...but good idea

I must say the skull effect on the assassin's facecloth was very well done! Just thinking maybe a white coloured skull effect would be more striking!:skull:
When I apply highlight think should look brighter..now I only want to end my 2000 pts with basecoat + dipping..after this Ill make them up a bit ;)..

Now just slap the 6th ed "sea cow" cold one head on those headless bodies and you'll have people completely baffled.

On a more serious note, that hydra looks great. For some reason I really like the angle of the lowest head. He seems to be looking up jealously at all the higher heads.

04-02-2009, 17:33
The biggest problem with the Hydra is the sudden mismatch of scale patterns from the neck to the heads. You might want to ease into the scale pattern a bit with your green stuff.

That being said...you're going to have a very unique hydra...

ok the idea is that the eye is like reptilian eyes so a line in the center and then just add some colors to the side from the most dark to the most bright.

may be the ornage to yellow could be the best in the hidra

also this in spanish

devlan mud is the new dip. :)

it works wonders, isnt carcinogenic, and doesnt get all over your fingers/hands/work area like woodstain. plus it doesnt leave a glossy look like dip does. i really like the hydra model you have, though. it is much better than the current one that GW has. i dont know why GW didnt make the new one plastic. i still would have paid a high price for it, and it would be sturdier than pewter.

I hate to say this

Really, really, REALLY hate to say this... but your bases makes the army look a bit messy, saw it just now in the armypic, it could be due to the movement trays though, may I suggest NOT attempting to base the movement trays, but rather just paint them black with some basic highlighting and leave it at that, so as to make them more display-trays than trying to blend them into the bases.

Furthermore, I think one of the main villains is the fact that you've got black gravel on your Dark Rider bases, even fi you've dipped it, do paint it as well, highlight up into normal rather than black sand and you should be fit for fight methinks. Also, some of the hydras base items do appear a bit bland even after dip, go back over them with some basic highlighting, I've found that when people do this on their dips, it makes the model look tonnes better than just "dip and done"

Maybe the problem is that I haventpainted the border of the bases, they will be painted in a dark brown colour..there is only a movemnt tray.. for the warriors...

the darker spots in the bases are sand painted with scorched brown and dipped... and you are totally right, with some highlights the army would be improved..in fact as I said in posts before, my main goal is to achieve a 2000 points army, painted and dipped (so is ready to play)..when I get it there will be time to make it up a bit with some highlights

little update... setting my BG unit.. Ill have 12 miniatures and 2xfillers, 4x4cm each one... so Ill have a very flexible unit in order to form rows of 5,6 or seven minis

I set the bases and put over a thin layer of my cheap putty, and let it dry

Fantastic! Normally I view dipping as a cheater's method, but you've done these so skilfully that I can't help but admire the cleanness and lack of gloss. You could use some extra highlights on the armor and capes, though, but your metal really stands out; almost like NMM!

at the end I decided to leave them alone...

fillers painted and dippes, I applied a first lighter layer to the bluish colour, dip + blue isnt a good combo so a darker dip would have destroyed the blue.
After this I darkened the dip and applied it to the rest of filler, specially in the central piece. this one is so big that I will work a lot over it when I apply the highlights (when all the army is over)

base colour ready... today will be dipped...

the standard is the only conversion, from HE archers, bigger and very similar to the BG one...

Im not very pleased with the freehand, the rune looks ok, but the frame..I tried to copy a pattern that Lakissov used in his CO..but I didnt get it as well as as him...

next unit..should be rdy at the end of thursday so on friday Ill travel to a tournament in a near city

GZ harpies, really love these minis..So I wanted to make a really good unit, something more than them and their bases... so I made them fly
I got some craved wood sticks by recommendation of my friend Gero to make some columns

I chose some nice positions and go for drilling!!!

the wings was a very careful work, the wings are really thin... pinning + GS + cyanocrilate made it...

They are a bit unstable but think the look deserves it...

bases and and wood pieces as bit of columns

back from holydays!!...

harpies!!!..probaby the worst unit (talking about painting) in my army..I was in a hurry to get them to be able to play a tournment with them...and I ruined them... too much purple ink (new ones) from GW...this + dipping is a very very bad idea..the models look TOO dark...

When I apply highlights after getting the 2000 pints landmark I hope I can save them at least a bit..

Im really dissapinted with this unit

Can you please tell me which colors and dip you have used?
So I can guess which colors I use for my scheme...

.

sure...
colours...

red: red from foundation
leather: ochre foundation
metallics: chain mail, boltgun and mithril + some purple or blue (I mixed different metallic colours to achieve a lighter or darker tone) and for gold I used the darker gold fom GW (dont remember the name right now). Ig the golden surface was really big I mixed it with a bit of purple and english uniform (vallejo)

skin: the last colour, the purplish one is a mix of purple and a very pale blue colour (like space wolves grey)...

green: turquoise from GW or vallejo...


The dipping is a mix I prepare with matt varnish and Asphalt which is the english translation for "betun de judea"..
in this Irras log youll see exactly how prepare it, so I taught him how to make the mix and he explains this really really well:

After the harpiesdisaster Im starting my 2nd DR unit.
they will be a mix of plastic glade raiders horses + 5th ed. riders... I want to work "as less as possible"...only this unit and one RBT left for end my 2000 points army

they look like this right now:

http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/7915/cimg1793.jpg

I must make the horses "evilier"..Ill add some more armour in their heads, some spikes etc... but not a lot of things.. I hope that some details and a dark schema painting (as the first unit) make them look evil enough.

DR with rxbows, I added some leather straps. I used plastic rxbows to ease working them and the later painting..as always I want to achieve the best results in the least of time...

I didn't think the harpies were too bad either, and the sculpts by themselves are quite good, from what I can tell. But, then again, maybe they get too dark compared to the rest of your army?
Are you waiting 'til you've hit the 2000 pts mark with giving us a army shot, or can I beg for one now, just to see how the harpies blend in with the rest?

Anyways, nice horses on those riders, looking good so far!

Love those horses. I think a lot of dark elf players have thought of using wood elf steeds, but haven't gone the extra mile and converted them to look Dark Elfy. I've often wondered what they'd look like with a bit of extra sculpting and a few spikey bits. Excellent work, dude.

28-09-2009, 16:36
As haydnc already wrote, your conversion of those Wood Elf steeds are really good, the extra spikes and the full masks/headguards for the horses really gives your riders an extra edge.
