    Laid down some base color, I think it is the right direction? Any pointers before I really begin on the fine lady?

    Did some work last night. The dress, skin, horse skin, horse hair are pretty much done. Not sure on the skin yet, as I said before I am not used to painting such fair skin. Any advice on how to shade it better? Better way to make it just a little more rosy on the face? Do I need to bring out the red in the lips more? What do you think?

    Did some lining, and highlights in other areas. My wife says the horse is too dark! Kind of my niche, but I am trying for something more vibrant. Tips at this point?

    Still a few days left on our damsel, but I needed to get started on the next hero in order to prep his base. I rolled on the random generator a few days ago, and the results were.... (intense moment of dramatic pause)...

    MOUNTED DWARF!!!!!

    I present... BROKK HEFFERSWORN. Manufactured by Westwind Productions for the DWARF WARS line.

    The first block shows him as he looks out of the box. Picture two shows a hunk of pink insulation foam glued to a 50x50mm base with a bit of sand around it. Also, took the time to drill a few holes for paperclips to hold the miniature on the base, and one to hold the rider on the mount. Additionally, I sculpted a bit of saddle to help Brokk stay properly mounted. The third picture shows what it looks like after covering the pink foam with a mix of glue and black paint (you don't want to primer to touch it, it will melt it). The last picture shows everything primed and ready to paint. And, easy as that, he is ready to start painting.... Just as soon as we finish the final touches on our damsel!!!!

    Ok, here we go with another update. We are getting really close with her. Going to start adding vegetation soon, but from what I see I still need to hit the racoons eyes, do some more with the water effects, and tighten up some highlights. Any other recommendations?

    With the lady complete, time to start on the next character model - Brok Heffersworn!

    Thus far, we have about an hour of work put into the base.

    And now, we are 1 hour in to painting! Going to try to be disciplined and time how long each mini takes to paint! Most everything so far has been done with contrast paint, over top of white primer that was washed with Agrax Earthshade.

    Wyldwood Contrast for the Brown and bone bits, Ultramarine Blue Contrast, Ork Flesh Contrast, Gryph Hound Orange, Gullimans Flesh contrast, Black Templar Contrast.

    On the Yak it is Word Bearers Red, and some Wyldwood Contrast laid on the uppermost portion.

    BROK 2 HOURS

    Worked on the YAK a bit. Dry brushed with Mournfang Brown, followed by a wash of Agrax Earthshade. I then highlighted the hair with Deathclaw Brown, followed by Balor Brown, followed by Lugganath Orange. The metal bits have received Grey Knights Steel. Gold Bits got Retributor Gold. The skin got Emporers Children on the nose, fingers, elbows and lips. Followed this with a base of Bugmans glow on Broks skin and the Yaks Nose and ears.

    Hour 3 -

    Highlighted the skin and Yak muzzle using Cadian Fleshtone, Kislev Flesh, and Flayed One Flesh.
    Highlighted the beard using Wild Riders Red, Troll Slayer Orange, Fire Dragon Bright, and Yriel Yellow
    Highlighted the top of the Yak with Skavenblight Dinge, Stormvermin Fur, and Administratium Grey.
    Washed the Yak fur (just the upper portion) with a very diluted Gryph Hound Orange, then Washed the very top (the dark part) with Agrex Earthshade.

    @MasonReid: Thanks mate!

    Ok, so I had to rush to get him almost complete for this past weeks local painting competition. Still a few small things to be done on him when I get him back this weekend, but please let me know if you see anything as well!

    Also, I rolled on the random generator for what to paint next in the "hero" category.... MOUNTED CHAOS DWARF. This could be interesting.

    While Brok is getting judged in a local contest, time for the next hero!

    Next up, Kael the Irrascible from Rackham Confrontation. Rolled a Mounted Chaos Dwarf Lord on the random generator, and this is the first one I dug out from the box! Also, since he is mostly metal, I decided to use the GW Boltgun Metal Primer... first time for this so lets see how it goes!

    1 HOUR complete! Not bad so far, a lot of base coating. Also, trying to tint my armour a slight shade of purple using contrast paints. We will see....

    On to hour three, which really comprises of the red bits. It took an entire hour because I re-did it a few times. I am thinking that I need to make the gems a different color? Green maybe? Also, the glowing runes on the sword... was going to originally make them red, but now I am thinking green as well? Thoughts?

    Too much color? The black horse hair wasn't working.

    Ok, so I need some help. The glowing runes just don't seem to be working like I want. Any tips?

    Also, keep the armor darker, or brighten it back up a bit? Thought process (story wise) is that Kael is an overseer for an oil field in the Chaos Dwarf Lands. So the base is going to get some oil field type goodness.... at least I hope.

    Anyway, any tips at this point? Plan to wrap him up soon. Still need to do the boar fur (thinking grey???).

    @codsticker: Thanks mate!

    Two things, one, KAEL is almost done. Started doing his base. He is wet right now (think slimy oil field!!) and I will post his update to the Chaos Dwarves Army Thread once he is ready. The second... the other Dwarf, mounted on the Oxen, of which I thought I took completed photo's, is now wrapped in bubble wrap and making his journey to Germany. So, I must have deleted the finished photo's!!! Anyway, I will get him up and posted proper in a month or two once my stuff arrives.

    So... what next....
