Xx9millxX's chaos dwarves (finally started)Xx9millxX 12-19-2013

Okay so here it goes ..

These are my chaos dwarves. I used to play about ten years ago, had a bunch of different figures tried a bunch of different armies. Never fully completed one. I recently decided to find a hobby and warhammer came to mind ..
I found out there were all these awesome new models then I stumbled across forgeworld and fell in love .

I'm not the greatest artist but I suppose they're not horrible for my first time painting in a long time . I also feel like this blog will help keep me motivated to finish them.

   

Now bear with me ... For some reason I can only post one attachment at a time from my phone (don't have a computer) .. Unless anyone knows how to get around that ?
Also how do u edit posts?

They are BY ALL MEANS not finished .. The front one almost is completed just so I could get my color scheme right ..

Hope you guys enjoy Cheers!

Good to finally see something from you, first let's start with pictures...

Photobucket is your friend. I assume you have a smart phone. There's a mobile app. I would advise using a image service like this to show your minis off.

You painting came out pretty solid. You could really add some punch if you add highlights and washes. I understand you haven't painted in a long time.

In otherwords keep it going, its good to see you finally starting out!

Thanks for the input guys Happy

High lights work by taking a lighter shade of color and putting it on the edges of parts of the model. Like weapons and armor. Beards and faces. It creates depth for the model, takes a little extra time but the reward of the model it self will make you feel so much better.

I would Google it for tutorials. Those can explain highlighting a lot easier with examples.

Good point there Fuggit; New blogs to follow is always great Cheers!

I like the way you are going with the light(er) beards XX9millXX! I think a brown or black wash over the armour and shoulderpads would help tie the models together. Keep on postin`Happy

An interesting scheme, aye.

And please, keep yourself motivated! This forum indeed will help you doing so, or at least, that it does with me.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Hey mate, your core needs to be a minimum of 25% of you list. Think about some hobgoblins to give you some more ranks!

Hope this helps,

Cheers

If you're working from a phone, I'm afraid you can't edit your posts. So you'll have to do that from a computer at school or a library.

Looking forward to seeing the unit done. Liking the red colour on the glaives, it's cool.

Here goes an update ... I wish I knew how to edit the topic so I could change it to update .. (@clawleader..how do I find browser settings on my iPhone?)

Anyways been real busy .. Painted a couple 40k dark vengeance guys an assembling rest of my chaos dwarfs .. Finally got around to painting a few dwarfs in the past 2 days ... I changed the color scheme of my fireglaives a bit and did the forgeworld hellsmith ( which IMO turned out amazing for my skill level)

Anyways hope you guys enjoy ...

My sorcerer prophet .. Converted "halberd" type weapon .. I think it's pretty sick Happy


Re-painted fireglaives..bronze and gunmetal shoulder pads instead of bright gold an gray. Dark bronze chest plate instead of gray. Gunmetal scalemail instead of dark bronze and brightened the red up a bit . They Don't look so awkward to me anymore

....

And *drumroll please* Wink
My masterpiece.. (At least for me since I'm not the greatest at all) there was a guy on here a while ago who did the greenish skin and red trimmed helmets which I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED .. So I kinda stole his idea(for helmets an skin tone) so if you see this dude, I apologize for taking your idea but I loved it so much please consider it a tribute to you Cheers!












Hope you guys like and stay tuned .. I promise ill put more up soon .. (I'll post some of my 40k if guys would like to check them out)

Let me know what ya think
