More Spearmen

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, general business prevented me from getting much painting time. But after a brake of two weeks I managed to finish some more spear men. This is the last batch before i finish the command group and then the unit is finished.

Fortunately after a previous few weeks of difficulty the camera was working pretty well today, and I got reasonably good pictures of all the models. Note the last picture is actually a different model to the previous one. As always, click for a bigger view and C and C warmly welcomed.

High Elf Spearmen

Finished another rank of spear men today. I changed the way I usually paint them incorporating Dim's advice and  think it looks a lot better so thanks to you Dims.

Unfortunately the camera refused to focus once again so most of the photos I took had to be deleted.
I also made this plinth up during the week, I'll be using it for a project I'm about to start working on for four years in the hobby.
And here's a picture of all ten of the spear men done. As always comments and criticism is welcome and click on the photos for a better view.

High Elf Spearmen

Haven't done much since last post because of a busy schedule, but did start work on these spear men. The purple cloth is done and so is the gold and silver. Click on pictures for a better view and comments and criticism is welcome as always.

With the fourth anniversary of when I started the hobby coming up I thought I would go all out on a new miniature to celebrate. At the moment it has just been built and mould lines removed.

Finished War Walker and High Elves

So as I said last time the reason for a severe lack of posts was among a number of things working on too many projects at once. But through a great length of time mostly I managed to get the War Walker finished. I did have more pictures of it but the camera after running out of battery decided to misbehave even more so I'm left with 2. Click on pictures for a larger image and comments and criticism welcome as normal.

I usually run in a pair as shown because at 50 points each scout, a scatter laser and a shruiken cannon that's a lot of very manoeuvrable firepower at a very reasonable price tag. Even though they are only toughness 10 in the admittedly few games I have played with them they have survived quite well whilst always making up at least double their points back.

One of the other projects I've been working on is my high elf spear men. Even though they were already painted I've basically repainted them as before they looked quite boring and without any technical skill. I've kept to the same colour scheme and because my skills have improved it still takes me the same amount of time to paint them even though I'm doing three times as much.

I did have pictures of all five but once again the camera had the final say and so only these two will be posted in the meantime.
