;) Thanks. Here is another try with Reaper Earth Brown base, than Leather Brown followed by Marigold Yellow (the last two applied with a sponge) and a coat of GW Gryphonne Sepia for the finish. The Skaven are test runs. The skin tone of the left guy is to reddish.

Besides: does anybody know where to get felt for chess figures? I can only find one with a sleaziness of 1mm. Is there a special term for this material?

Those are incredible. I do not have the patients or steady hand to paint like that. I love checking out everyone's painted figures. I have to be content with colorless minis which is okay with me cause I like to keep everything original.

OCD!

Have you looked into pool table felt? That stuff is pretty thick.

Nice! I use pre-cast resin bases, that work out somewhat similar to yours. I'm not as good at sculpting!

I believe you're looking for "hard felt", but it's been a while.

For what it's worth, I'm using re-sized board sections (25mm squares), which work out *much* better for the 25mm bases.

Mophus has a method of making love to the paint that I can only dream about... Very nicely done.

Finished the modification on a imperial dwarf to get Prince Gomrund Tallhelm. I used the tutorial on Bugmans Brewery. This was my first sculpting on a miniature, but I think it came out acceptable. The Prince is shown on the narrow side of the AHQ box.

That's some fine sculpting. Tallhelm, indeed.
Looks like something that could come out of an Asterix issue, which is not meant neagtively.
Absolutely fits your own taste and style. I wanna see more. |_P

Sometimes I go back to reconsidering having a whole Oldhammer set of minis, but I have chosen modernism.

Thanks for your kind words. :lol: Asterix applies perfect. That is the humor with a wink of pre 4th ed. like the dwarf on stilts with the inferiority complex.

By the way, this was my reference for the modification:

Image

The part with the prongs on my sculpt is a littlebit to high in comparison. Although the prongs are to thick, but I don't touch it anymore. I finished the mini today at 2 o'clock in the morning. Than I recognized, that I used the recently finished back as a palmrest :bites-lip:. I turned berserker mode on and made the whole crown again. At 4:30 the mini was finished ... finally.

Sometimes I go back to reconsidering having a whole Oldhammer set of minis, but I have chosen modernism.


I had already a complete HQ set of proxies, in the past. But I wasn't satisfied by the result and switched to acquiring all the original miniatures. Personally I think it isn't a question of modernity, but of style and individual taste. Is expressionism inferior to pop art? No, they are two different styles. The design trend at GW can be compared with the development of video games. Technically considered are 3D graphics superior to 2D graphics. But from an artistic view, they're different styles of representation. So the actual GW miniatures are maybe technically superior, but the design hasn't improved - it has changed. I personally feel a lag of soul in GW miniatures since 4th/5th ed. Just as some supervisualbombastic actual video games lag gameplay and deployability.

But fortunately there are a few small companies, who create new miniatures in the style of the golden citadel era. "The Pantheon of Chaos" is a example for those new Oldhammer miniature style:
