If you paint 10,000 points to that level of quality, then you must be insane as well as otherwise unoccupied. ;)
Great stuff. I particularly like the symbols, I'd love to see what you could do with the new Wood elves.

Those are excellent, i hope you don't mind me saying, but personally the blood isn't particularily life like, i think with your painting skills it should easily be sorted. If have further ideas if you want them.

i would have to agree with mr hiredsword. they are indeed excellent paintjobs and very detailed considering they are part of a monster 10,000 point force. but the blood does not look real though. sorry, its a bit like ketchup :o

When I do blood over bright colours and metals I like to start with watered down Dark Flesh. It gives a hue much like semi-dried blood.
A couple of highlights up towards blood red and it looks really nice!

Love the paintjob!

The best way to paint blood is to buy a pot of Tamiya clear red. Its as if they actually kill people to make the stuff.

Oh and your mini's are awesome :eek: (but change the blood;) )

Wow! :eek: You have painted all those little swirlies on every model?

Luke
29-12-2005, 13:41
one thing that strikes me is the lack of any iconography on the standards, its a shame that the models themselves are so detailed and the standards are so plain

Maybe there's a pint to the all, Luke. No, sorry, that should be POINT. With an I. No beer intended at all.

I really like them, although I'll have to chime into what the other lads said about the blood.

I use a super fine detail brush.

yeah, each swirlies were painted with B browns over black undercoat, than shining gold over that, than M silver highlight then white + silver highlight.

I feel sad by looking at your models. They make me feel so... inferior. And yet I get to show off mine in the local gamesstore.

Did you get any other perks when you sold your soul to satan? huh? HUH?!

You can have it back if you want. I'll trade it for painting lessons?

I like the swirly stuff, but it looks like you have overlooked some otherthings, like blood, and horns. They distract from the nice (albiet, busy) paintjob. Keep up the good work.

There's one thing about Marauders that bug me infinitely. The joint between their arms and their bodies are SO visible. Not against you, it's just so very annoying. I find that the solution is often to take some plastic glue (the dissolving kind) and smear it over the shoulders of the marauders. The glue will melt the joint, making it look natural.

Oh, and I think you should give tattoos to some guys, not veryone, but a few more than you have now, say one in five?

I thought I was insane. No, you are... these models must have taken ages to paint, they look really wickedly cool. Great job, but seems like you have lots to do to reach that 10k limit :cool:

HiredSword.
30-12-2005, 11:32
on the marauders:

i never really liked the marauder models but the paint job is still great. Just a tiiiny thing but if you painted the flesh on the shields the same kind of colours as the fur on the chaos warriors so that the two units tie in. i don't know if thats just me and i have seen the rest of the army.

If you wanted ideas of adding warriors that have been gifted by the different gods then why not do the same spiralling effects you do on the armour but flowing into the different colours of the gods. so for example, for tzeentch the goldy kind of colour would flow into purples and pinks maybe? it works on your flying discs that you've done so why not on armour?

tzeentchgiant
30-12-2005, 13:50
They look great, but I suppose I should give constructive criticism too, I'd go back to the base edges, they seem to only be half painted, and otherwise, just the normal colour, that needs worked on.

The blood too, seems to let down the paintjob, give the areas of blood a thin coat of red ink, even though I hate inks, it's easily the best way to creat nice deep blood effects.

Those tattoos rock, very very well done, and the skin tone, it's surprisingly realistic, just the right depth etc, very nice.

Very nice. This so far is an incredible army!!! What type of time frame are you looking at to complete such a mammoth project? This would be an impressive army on the field of battle, but I am not sure you would have enough room in a DZ to place them all, you would need at least a good 8' table. I would play against it, but I have a lot of fantasy painting to do to catch up to something of that size!!!

Simply amazing...

The standard is not 'award winning' stuff by itself(although a very good TT quality) but when combined with the speed at which you paint it - truely fantastic!!!

10,000 pts in a year - thats around, what 830pts a month! I find it hard completing a regiment in a month!

One question - what on earth do you do with all these mammoth projects once complete?

As I said in your 10k daemons thread, these are amazing. Unbelievable. it takes you god knows how short a time to paint masterpieces, and I'm not even exaggerating. Very well done. As for the marauders, it'll take too long to paint the tattoes? What? It takes you 5 minutes to paint a 25 man marauder unit, painted to the highest standard, and the tattoes will take too long? :confused: :eyebrows: :D *Collapses in frustration*
Keep up.... Ah, you don't need my encouragement.

Theres some things I look at and feel sickened by. The dozen titans at games day was one, this is another.

I am, too be frank, sickened by the sheer amount of models on that table for a independant. If you were working for GW, then fair enough. But on your own, and that many.

Ill be honest and say I cant look around tensions threads again because there beautifully painted but the only way I can honestly describe them is sickening - and I mean that as a form of praise strangely.

I am officially declaring my hatred for Mortare, not only did I poo my pants when I saw that this thread had been posted in, I neglected to clean it up until after I discovered what the update was.

Now I, my trousers, the chair I'm sitting on, and the room, are filled with the stench of excitement, and for no reason.

:mad:

On a serious note, it's rather annoying to have threads come back up, especiialy such interesting ones as this, without someone actually updating them. Please, please, please don't do it again.

but i'm trying to finish my daemon legion first..

i did update my daemonic legion almost everyday, won't mind some comments over there..;)

if i work really really hard on my daemonic legion, i might be able to get it finish before september..
then i can continue my sword of chaos.

10k empire... hmm... i got 10k sword of chaos and 10k daemonic legion.. maybe if we meet one day we can have a massive 20k chaos vs 10k empire...

hello,
being so busy painting my daemonic legion and my golden demon entry, i hardly have any time to update my sword of chaos.

so today, i decide to paint a few chaos warriors for a change.

i picked the colors similar to my daemonic tzeentch legion so i can mix the units up and use them in my sword of chaos as well and they will still look good together.

the freehand are there to keep my horde to the same theme.
