    Realy good work Rusty.
    Love the Elf.
    The Orc is looking good too.
    That Chaos champoin is one of my all time favorite models. Never owned one as it's always to highly priced for me.

    Keep it up. I'll be watching

    While a bit disappointed about the Barbarian, the Orc Shaman and Chaos Warrior make up for it. Looking forward to see the Shaman finished

    Been hard at work painting the shaman. Almost finished, but also put together a pit fighter.

    Reaper mini from eBay + bits.

    Total cost 3.15

    Nice conversion!
    Where does that awesome helmet come from?

    Thanks. Chaos warrior helmet, with horns removed and then an Eldar guardian head... plume? Just trimmed and glued

    Hah, love it. And isn't it just great when totally disparate pieces come together like that so easily?

    Re: Rusty - Budget quest challenge

    Yeah, it's great when that happens. I kept the pieces because they looked cool, never considered this. Do you every now and then do a bits search, just for inspiration?

    Snotlings

    Bought in a job lot, sold the rest. Free snotlings. Realised one is missing, but there are 10.



    ...And a little more done on the shaman.

    I do exactly the same. Writing up how to guides can be painful as I sometimes have no idea (read: forgot) where a piece came from. As for inspiration, just finished trawling new model sprue bits sites, downloading to various modelling for Warhammer "Inspiration" folders per faction.

    Enjoy seeing more Snotlings about, particularly the classics. Shaman looks great so far

    Hahaha. This exactly. Do you get disappointed when a shopping cart of bits comes in at 30 and you just have to go back and delete items... Because you can't spend that much money and not have a single full model to show for it.

    Re: Rusty - Budget quest challenge

    The shaman looks smashing Rusty, I have a policy at the moment that I can't buy anything new, so everything has to be pulled from my bits boxes and re-worked.
    Its actually really fun and forces you to be creative. Luckily I have so many bits its not a problem.

    Re: Rusty - Budget quest challenge

    Daxio - that's a good philosophy and I find as you make progress it's so much more satisfying. It's partly why I set some strict guidelines for building a quest set... I could just lay the money down, but that's not the point at all.

    Undecided on the colour scheme, but like the way it's turning out.

    That pit fighter is going to look amazing! You have a wonderful tone and depth in the bronze armour.

    What a talent you have Rusty, great work as usual. What colour are you going to do the Pit Fighters head piece/mohawk type thing?

    Re: Rusty - Budget quest challenge

    Thanks gents.

    I'm not sure about the crest. I was thinking off-white helmet and left shoulder, then bright blue or purple crest and I reckon that will go well with the bronze. Then again red and white intermittently is customary and would look pretty good. I see it as the focus, so that splash of colour really frames the model.

    Thank you for reminding me of my most dreaded feeling, trimming my dreams with reality and fiscal responsibility.... :P

    As for the pit fighter, I'm thinking tradtional red crest to hide the gore of his foes drawing on the warmth of the bronze (could even do a green come to think of it), but judging on your previous work, I'm certain your idea will be a good one.

    Re: Rusty - Budget quest challenge

    Hahaha, that comment made me genuinely laugh out loud.

    Red was the right choice, accompanied by some white. I've done a little more than this photo, but forgot to take another.

    Late replying as my phone took a tumble and was OOA. The total repair cost was 135, sort of mocking the thread I've made here, but nil desperandum!

    I have picked up ten spiders. Surprisingly difficult to find some which looked good. These set me back more than I'd hoped at 9, but I'm pleased with them.

    Re: Rusty - Budget quest challenge

    Okay small update as I've been busy purchasing and prepping our home for the arrival of my first son who is due in three months.

    Some monsters!... and a couple of doomed adventurers.

    You have a whole lot of miniatures there Rusty, are you trying to get them all done before your son makes an appearance? if so good luck.
