For Hashut! As the Prophet wills it!Dezmord 05-12-2012

Hello fellow Sorcerer-Prophets!

I'm usually only active on warseer, but several users have pointed me to this forum, because you might like my Chaos Dwarfs Takes Hat off

The army, using the rules and models of LoA, was started in february and has already reached ~300 points.

Here are some pictures:

Welcome on CDO, as you may have noted I went the other way and started my plog here and than opened up on warseer. Loved your painting there and it is nice to have you here!

I'm glad someone has done the black with red highlights on the IG. I've been wanting to see how effective it would look for distinguishing them as Immortals (using my list).

It's certainly a striking colour scheme.  Are you planning to base the other warmachines?

I saw this over at warseer but I'm not sure I commented on it.

I think the Lamassu would look better with darker wing membrane, like the Bale Taurus.

A gorgeus scheme, fellow. I love the contrast you have reached, with that brilliant red-obsidian black-blue oxide.

Really, I am impressed.

I think those skins need more lights for being perfect, but it is only my personal like.

Keep up the good work!

Love the grey look to the skin. definately more evil looking, more highlighting wouldn't go amiss though. The Red on black looks great. Nice to see a bright red Taurus looking rather firey

What I really like about your color scheme is the massive use of neutral tones balanced by reds. It really gives the CDs a unique feeling.

Myself I'm not a big fan of gray skin but your models are really lovely painted. Great army so far.

Thanks for all the kind words!

Let me try to answer all the questions/suggestions:

Grimstonefire Wrote:

No, I'm not planning to base them. The intention of the bases on the Iron Daemon/Sklullcracker is to better be able to measure distances etc.
Funnily enough, the wings are painted in exactly the same colours on both models - I blame the lighting...

The top-highlight is actually nearly pure Rotting Flesh - it doesn't show on some models, though. I'd be afraid that they might be too bright with more higlights (it's 5 different highlights by now)

Let's see if you also like my newest addition to the army: here's a WIP of my Warpfire Dragon

Very cool stuff.... Keep it coming.

I think the blue in the metal portions of your army is very striking and really makes pretty much everything stand out.

Incredibly original and unique, and the Warpstone Dragon looks killer!

Welcome to the site.. I for one love the grey skin tones on your dwarfs. Ironically enough my gf suggested grey to signify them being in mines and no sunlight. You have great skills and hopefully you keep posting more pics of your army. Can you post some close ups of your models?

Glad you've come. I like both the Lammasu and Warpfire Dragon. As the army progress I hope you'll post pictures of your various units in the gallery section: http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/forumd...php?fid=41

It would be a shame to not have your uniquely painted Chaos Dwarfs included in the photographical collections. Wink

Thanks again for all the kind words!

@brotsorrow: Sure. Which parts would you like to see?
@Admiral: I've done so yesterday evening
@Herby: ...and I was afraid that it might be a bit too much blood

Nice to see, that you like the green - here's some more: Finished Warpfire Dragon!





I very much enjoyed painting a non-red miniature. It was quite obvious, right from the beginning, that the choice of colours would be hit or miss. Eiter the green would work (it's three differentkinds of green areas) or it would be a mess...
When I came home from work on friday at 11pm, I started painting the wings. I used different greens and a final wash with GW's new yellow glaze - it was 1:30am on saturday morning and my Dragon looked like as if I had vomitted some gummibears all over it... Deciding that it was time for some sleep, I went to bed. Crazily enough, I couldn't find sleep, because I was always thinking about the messed up wings. 2 hours later and the new wings were done Big Grin
