My tactic at painting as well.
I thought come one, finish thise set of Black Orcs... and started on some more MM90s and my Kludge.
On the other side, if you have no fun painting it won`t turn out good and the lead pile is high enough for diversity.

RE: Bas' Big Hat Blogbas_2312 03-26-2013

Well, the Wolfriders weren't enough fun to keep me interested ;p But I've been hard at work. In two weeks I'm participating in a tournament with this army, and so far the only this of my list that's finished are my Hobgoblins... So there's a lot of hard work ahead. I've got a lot of WIP projects on my desk at the moment, but due to the various Golden Hats and Brush Slaves I can't really show them off... But hopefully you can expect to see a finished army in a couple of weeks Happy

So sorry, don't have much to show, but I'm trying to keep myself motivated this way.

RE: Bas' Big Hat Blogbas_2312 04-14-2013

Update time!

Yesterday I played a tournament, so I had to get the base of my army finished. The banners are still empty because I want to take my time on them for another upcoming tournament in two weeks, where my army really needs to look good. But although my army really wasn't finished, I still managed to win best painted! So that's a boost to really try and paint my army the best I can.

Enough text, here are some pics.

RE: Bas' Big Hat Blogbas_2312 04-17-2013

Thanks guys! The fortification is just an obstable that was part of the table I played at Happy

No painting update for today, but a cry for help ;p

My army is mostly standard mini's (I love the Big Hats), and although there's nothing wrong with that, I'd like to make some more conversions to make my army pop to get a better chance at a best painted award. Hopefully I will finish my K'daii Destroyer in time so that should be a good start, but to tie the Destroyer and my army together a little more I wanted to make some Fireborn. So here's my first try, let's call it Fireborn 1.0:



I like the way it turned out, and it matches my concept drawings, but I doesn't really feel Chaos Dwarfy yet. I know the pose is a little wonky, but it's also lacking something else. The paintjob might help, but I'm not really sure. What do you guys think?

RE: Bas' Big Hat Blogbas_2312 04-17-2013

Yeah, the arms are really big, but that kinda was the idea. I wanted to give them the silhouette/look of an Orc/gorilla, but I agree that it's not working at the moment. So what if I shorten him up a little bit? The arms will still be big, but the overall physique will be more hunched/Orcish than human hopefully?

Here's a skillfully edited pic ;p



Is this any better?

RE: Bas' Big Hat BlogSkink 04-17-2013

I'm not sold as well... Something is missing. A couple of thoughts:

1) As said previously there should be some sort of protection for the pilot.

2) It is too tall and lean. What is it, an Eldar War Walker or a Dwarven bot of Doom?Wink Make it shorter and bulkier. Especially because as the prototype stands right now ranking a unit of 6 is going to be a a serious pain in the a**.

3) On the top of my mind check out this, this, this, and this for inspiration.

4) Are you going to represent the "burning bright" rule somehow?

Can't wait to see what you and Mr.Plasticard can come up withHappy.

Bas, right now he is standing like a gentle butler inviting people in at a party ("please come in and may I take your coat/hat")...

If you want to go for a more manacing look you should at least try to bend his legs at the knees, standing up straight is not a very warlike pose.

I would be nice to have him smash the ground in front of him with one or both of his fists (you could crack the grounds there and show some lava coming through)...

I dont mind the long arms but then he should use them in a not "inviting people to party" kind of way.

I love all the individual parts of the mini as it stands right now you just have to figure out a way to make it work all to together.

RE: Bas' Big Hat Blogbas_2312 04-18-2013

Thanks for your thought guys! I agree the first model really didn't work, but since it was a testpiece it was great to get some advice. I've been working on the idea a little more and this is what I came up with:

Fireborn Mk. 2. This time with shorter upper legs and a bend back and legs for a more hunched over look. I think this does a lot for a less human look. Pose is still a bit silly though..



So here's Fireborn Mk. 3. Shorter legs like the Mk. 2, but also shorter upper arms. And this time I went for a really agressive animallistic pose... And to me it looks a lot better! Only problem is making a dynamic unic like this would be a hell to rank up. The plus side is since it will be a unit of 8 at most, I should be able to work around that. Also, the fists look way better than the open hands..







So what do you guys think? Is this an improvement over the Mk. 1? And what else should I change? It's obviously very much a WIP, so there's still a lot of bubbles and the "pilot" also needs some work.

The pose is much better, although the model still looks too "Eldarish" to me. Maybe you can add some bulk with knees protections, bigger boots and shoulder pads? How about flames to add some CD flavor?

RE: Bas' Big Hat Blogbas_2312 04-18-2013

Bulkier shoulderpads might work.. I'll have to think about that.

I was thinking about maybe adding some flames coming from the vents in the legs and upper arms. That would also make them a little beefier. Thought on that?

Vents flaming? Hell yeah! It has also got pipes on its back right? Some flames coming out of those would be great as well. Finally, I'd put flames on its hands as well. For the simple reasons that it's going to hit its enemies with those, and "flaming attacks" must come from somewhere (Note: by this I don't mean that the hands are actually on fire, but that they are EXTREMELY hot)...
