A recent addition to my forces (from borador)



As I didn't have any of these before (except the bannerbearer), it nows means I'll have to collect the rest of the range.

Nice frescoes, football team and helmet CDs. Good luck with the Artisan's entry. Happy

I don't know how well green or grey stuff adher to the material you're using (MDF?), but have you thought about making press-moulds of skulls, Lamassu faces or similar details, and copy them over and over again on the temple? Such small architectural details helps bind scenery to the detailed miniatures we use.

@Admiral.   The fresco's and details are hard and have taken a long time to get something i like.  Just getting scales and sizes and a unique shape that I like has taken me lots of hours so far.   I just bought (ebay) a set of proper hand gouges/carving tools as no hardware store within 3 hours drive has any at all.  Hopefully they will improve my efforts and i won't be able to blame the tools this time.  Yes It is MDF, very easy to work with and the green stuff I have should stick pretty well to fix any blemishes.  Or do artists call them character details or personal touches?
  
The footy team I already had just because of collectionitis.   A guy who has moved to our area (Stephen Babbage) is pretty full on with bloodbowl.  I always get sucked into any thing that turns up around here and he proposed a league get started.  So now the team has to come out of the cupboard and is getting tarted up.  He wanted me to drag my "Harthark" out of the bull centaurs unit (IE off its fixed 50 x 75 base etc) but I decided to make a couple of "customs" using a boar and BFSP dwarf WIP I already had and the Karagrim dwarf character and another spare boar body.  The foot-ball is a lego soccer ball and the spiky bits are off those plastic ties shops use to secure price tags to items.  So far the teams record is none for one.

As to molds, I've never haven't had much luck previously with making my own ... maybe later.

@ Toasted.  Thanks.  It's taken me years and more money than I wish to count to get them.  Alcohol (and/or depression) and ebay don't mix well for the wallet.   Have a real good look through our WIKI for what chaos dwarf models are are out there. More than you'd think.   I've spent hours, if not days prowling through the showcases on here and the old "Hand of Hashut" website looking for inspirations, and haven't regretted it.   I really believe that being in england you will have more opportunity than I to see great armies first hand.  Good luck and have fun with it.

Here is my latest big aquisition,  and for a fair price too.



After looking at all the pics I could find, it looks like it is missing one of its bolt throwers ( which I will make a replacement for) and two of the upstairs goblins.

Thought I'd show you its actual size.  It surprised me when I finally got it in hand.

  

I weighed them as well.  The citadel goblin giant is 181 grams and the grenadier a whopping 1.29 kilo's even without the gobbo's that go with it

@ Admiral - Yes it is.
@ Zanko - I think I've drooled over yours a few times and been insanely jealous that you had one.  Quite probably your blog is where I first ever saw one.

this one popped up last month on ebay (from france) for a Buy-it-Now of 29.90 EUR ($43.00AU). There was no way I could resist after so long.
Postage was another 18EUR due to the weight

Have finally gotten some more work done on the Seige Giant.  Some battle damage, a few runes and some progress on his "hand" weapons;

Slave and sacrifice runes branded onto the giant
  

Left arm from first stage to weapon pick formed and braces straps on.....
  

and the start of the braces on his right arm

Beautiful siege giant...it makes me want to try making one for my army as well. I love the idea of slave and sacrifice runes branded in his skin...quite a while back I had thought about making some slave/sacrifice tattoo's for some slaves, but your idea of it being branded is infinitely better! Makes sense that the Chaos Dwarf masters would use hot metal branding irons.
Well done Sir Cheers!

Abecedar, I just bought a giant because of your siege giant. The armor and the beautiful big pick. So my ohrde will have a siege giant... some day. Besides from hobggoblins I now have bits for every unit in the list.

Pity I won't be able to use him as a GH slave, him being on the website already.  Just means he is on the backburner again, while I concentrate what little spare time I have on other slaves.  Mind you I'm not sure how I'd be able to add the "war-machine" component to him.

I missed our local club night last night (bloody work again) but some chaos kits-n-stuff was brought in to be sold and my son (bless his little cotton dwarfy sox) bought me another (my second) metal hellcannon for $30.00AU

Yeah, he's on the site already in a painted state, so that's a pity for the contest. Perhaps you could have mounted rocket launchers on his shoulders? Wink

My second destroyer is having a little bit more work done.  I started work on him at the same time as the Destroyer Golden Hat comp', but as I wasn't ready to start any lava bases back then he got put on hold.

Two years ago I acquired 65 mini's from someone up in Queensland for quite a good price ($180.00AU).  I don't think I've seen them in our showcases here.  All of them are 4th Edition metals.  They are lava based as you can see.  I think its chopped up balsa wood on top of the plastic bases.  I thought it time I had a go at making them presentable.  I decided that if I stripped them completely they would never get done, so I'm trying to try and re-do them with a minimum of painting. Some still have their tabs but a fair few have had them removed and just glued onto the bases at their feet.

This is all of them.


This is how the bases looked originally. All straight lines and not real impressed with the paint.


This is my first effort at re-doing the bases.  Roughing up the straight lines and sand and glue to blur out those edges a bit more.

RE: Ash Wastes Insurrection  (updated 13-Oct-2014 - Destroyer and 4th Ed models)Abecedar 10-16-2014

I don't tend to say much here unless I've got some actual pictures but I thought I'd make a list of the current projects on the
painting table for you all (must be feeling lonely this morning)

From GH21  
-  The Juggernaut.  I can't decide how to finish some of the shields off
-  The Grenadier Giant.  Just needs all of his proper Goblins to be painted all round and a second bolt thrower to be made.
   I would love to add some details like extra chains and stuff later as well.
-  The Whirlwind. needs its proper wheel which I can't find now. The broken one I made is 1mm too big. and of course the
    hard bit of repairing the broken maces.
-  The Boar Centaur needs his wounded leg fixed and his paint scheme adjusted
-  The two new Death rockets need their crew finished and then to be based
-  And a few other slave related ideas that got started but failed to reach satisfactory status before the GH finished.  Like the spare death rockets
   and a palanquin and a couple of "not from this planet" slaves I thought would be funny.

Other CD stuff is  - the Seige Giant, the 65 metal 4th ed's with Lava style basing I'm struggling with, the second destroyer I started way back for GH19,
as it is lava based as well.  And the second Hell cannon

Then there is a Thrud and a Dechala I've been toying with.

I'm also really thinking my basic warriors colour scheme is too "dirty" and am currently changing the scheme on my first pair of death rocket
crewman slightly as an experiment.  And I've decided that my ash-wastes basing needs something else so I've added more to the newer projects and am quite
happy with the looks of it and will now have to upgrade the rest of my army to match

And I've gone and thrown my Big-Hat into the political arena.  The creation of Emissaries to venture across the globe and lure others into my Insurrection
