Dark Fortress (Blog of Karring)-UPDATED 29/08/2012Karring 08-06-2012

Hi, boys!

I begin my army blog with my hobbo horde, which I am remodeling now. Some pics:

The family:



Filler one-orc and his minion, who has just stolen some weapons of a Warrior of Chaos, including helm:





Filler two -animosity:



And the movement base (extra size!!!):


So, I have to paint the few guys that are not, and prepare the bases for fit with the others-CD ones, lava and else.

I like the filler.

A bit of  well intended feedback: you should check out the mold lines:

next time remove these with a sharp knife, it will make you plastics look a lot better.

cheers

Hello again, boys!
I have to say that magnet`s idea have been a succes.

Here is a pic of the hard process of gluing magnets to weapons handles. My finger are crying...


Up view of blunderbuss during the process:


And here, IG guys with fireglaives:





How do they look?

Quite fine, really like them. To tell the truth, I am much too lazy to try something like the magnetizing business.

Thank you, pals.

Clever bugger aren't you.  never even thought to use sprue as tray edging and magnetising the tips of weapons is brilliant.  well done, just wished you'd shown me this before I'd gone as far as I have with my BB conversions. mind you they have been stalled since LoA came out.

for me, your troops look fine and are doing great. But the bases seem to have too much in the way of the highlighting shades and (my problem too) is that there are streaks and straight lines in the highlighting.

Aye: I simply do a grey dry brush above a black imprimation, letting the hard highlight work for the lava. Bad done, anyway. Lazy, lazy I am...

Hello again!

Some better pics of IG, and a pair of photos about classic blunderbusses, which I recently have finished:











I know, I know... I have to fill those grooves...

And here is my classic Bull Centaur!! I think I will use him like a Taur Ruk, so he needs an adecuate base. I hope my skaven abomination does not care if I use a "little" bit



I was thinking to paint all the base like magma, and only the "ruins island" like rock. What do you think?

Thank you, Copper Happy

After having a "flash", I have begun to convert a K`daai Fireborn with remain pieces of skaven and chaos:







I have to make him armas, more fire with green stuff and other details-more armour.

What do you think?

are the hands finished?
i think they would look better if they were longer and bigger.
also a neck might be a good idea, or you could change the facing of the mask as it looks to me like its gazing at the stars..(no puns intended)
