RE: [05-21-2008] Xander's and Vexxus's Chaos Dwarf Army!Xander 05-21-2008

An update at last!

Since Vexxus was brought on board the project, things have been picking up!  Here is what the painted portion of the army looks like so far!  We are still having some small issues getting the lighting perfect (as our basement is devoid of light to start with), but the pictures are not that bad!

Slight overhead shot of the completed unit of 20 Hobgoblins!


Different angle, different lighting!


Again, angle and lighting have changed.


The colour scheme of the second unit.  These bad boys are resin cast miniatures. Happy  They also stand in front of a piece I created for the Nemesis Crown campaign that symbolizes the alliance we made with the Orcs and Goblins.  It was for a HoH competition, but I didn't finish on time.  This was painted by Vexxus.


A close up of a painted Bolt Thrower.  I bought 4 of these before I even wanted to play Chaos Dwarfs.  I got them at a GW Sale, where all blisters on the wall were $4 (I also grabbed some Empire Cannons and Mortars). So these were originally constructed and painted to be crewed by Night Goblins, for our Orc and Goblin army.  They have been re-adapted for Hobgoblins!


A shot of the painted army, sans my new Standard Bearer (whose arm fell off!)


More pics!




Vexxus and I would love some comments.  Vex painted all the Hobgob crewmen, we split of the hobbo unit, and Vex painted the new Hobbo scheme.  The rest you have seen before. Happy

Also worthy of note is the fact that the hobgoblins are now on a magnetic base.  A system that is extremely cheap: I use strip magnet on the undersides of the bases ($1 for a metre's worth), then a small amount of sheet metal ($2 for 3-4 units worth), that is meant for roofing or something, cut with metal sheers ($17 for the tool).

Stay tuned for pictures of the casting process I used for the hobgooblins, and for demonstrations of using magnets.  More videos to come too, about magnets and casting and such.

Cheers,
-Xander

Thanks guys!!

The hobgoblins took a lot of work to convert each one, but now that I have a mold of them, it's a lot faster! Big Grin

I can't wait to see your Hobbo rebuttal, Snotling! Wink

Wow, looks great en masse Xander. Damn IP law, i'm sure the sale of those hobbo casts would have earned a pretty penny.

Any chance of a close up of the crewman impaling the Nordlander? Will this be a little theme or is it just a one off?

Wow, this looks so cool. The cast gobbos seem to have come out really well. I'd love to see some WIP pictures of these. Happy The whole army has a lot of firepower now - I mean who would ever want to face an Earthshaker and four bolt throwers! Shock

Very nice, I like the overal look of the army so far.

I'd like to see some smoother transitions of some highlights but that's just me!Wink

These guys are already a lot of work to paint for 2 pts each, so I doubt they will see much more detail, but such tips are always appreciated Happy
