My chaos dwarf army projectDorktaku 10-08-2007

Rather than creating multiple threads in the showcase section, i thought it was a better idea to post in a single thread here how my project is going...

So I decided, a couple weeks ago, to start a CD army. Thanks to a friend of mine, I found a good deal and got myself a decent army... at least 3000pts of evil stunties... but no hobgoblins, unfortunately Sad

Well, the next step was obviously to paint them, so here I am, struggling with my freshly primed blunderbusses.

Leading this project, I will have to bear in mind two elements :

-The final goal is to setup a tournament army, and a nice one if possible. CD minis are awesome, I don't want to mess with their painting.

-The painting style I want to use on this army is an homage to the "old school" 'eavy metal style, from when i started to play : bright coulours, red armours... No problem with all that, I loved it back then, and I still do :-D

So, with this in mind, I started to paint... Here are the first minis. I will try to keep this post updated, but for more pics you can check my blog (well at least the pictures since it's written in French, sorry :-s)

n.b: the pics here are WIP... The bases are still not done; neither are the top of the blunderbusses.

Any comment here or on the blog are, of course, welcome :-D

Awesome start! Be sure to give them great bases. Bases that are well done are a must for tournament armies.

Shock your painting is of a very high standard! I like your choice of colours, you don't see bright colours much on Chaos Dwarfs now days, I like it!!
Takes Hat off should be a very interesting blog, looking forward to it.

Those are really sweet models, and the painting is top-notch. Give them good bases! A model without a base isn't finished so these can get even better when fully completed. Happy

wow, thanks for all the kind comments guys, that really motivates me to keep painting! I'll try to post updates as regularly as possible...

Yup, this has been one of my subjects of reflexion over the past weeks actually... Should I use a restricted or a broad palette? I was thinking that on a large army, having several bright colours could really make the units stand out ; I try to keep some sort of uniformity throughout the miniatures though, by keeping two main colours : red armours, blue clothes... and purple "details". It could be a problem though, I will judge when I have a larger sample of painted miniatures.

Just be careful or you will end with an army suffering from the dreaded "explosion in a paint factory" syndrome.

I think it'll turn out fine so long as there is uniformity of theme across the whole army.

I vote to keep the palette as is for now.  The combination of bright colours against the flat black looks really good in my opinion.  Particularly the torqoise/electric blue!  Also, there aren't going to be a whole lot of armies with this kind of colour scheme, painted to such an excellent standard.  Uniqueness + excellence = good.
